About Us

Tax Reduction Institute


Tax Reduction Institute is a tax education company that originated in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., just a short distance from the IRS. TRI is involved in the creation and distribution of valuable tax information for independent contractors and small business professionals.

First and foremost, we are communicators and educators. We may take the subject of taxes seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our presentations feature cartoons that maintain interest, humor that lightens the subject matter, and easy to follow examples which make it possible for you to gain immediate control of your taxes—and that means more money in your pocket!

Our programs and products are designed to educate independent contractors / small business professionals about the most recent tax laws to reduce tax liabilities and also answer some practical day-to-day financial issues. These proven techniques are invaluable tools to legally, morally and ethically reduce taxes.

Our speakers have been featured in major publications including The Wall Street Journal, Money Magazine and Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine (formerly Changing Times). We have also appeared on shows including Fox News, CBS News Nightwatch, Good Morning America, CNN and the Financial News Network.
