Press Release

LuisJoe Ybarra Jr. is a 6th grader at Sproull Jr high in Security, Colorado. On his Christmas vacation he was still training for the upcoming Silver Glove regional Championship Tournament which was held on January 3rd-6th 2013 in Pasadena California. 

Luisjoe had already won the Colorado State title in the first week of November and was looking towards to representing Colorado in region 8.  Some of the other States that competed were Hawaii, Utah, New Mexico, California, Arizona and Nevada.  Luisjoe competed in the 11yr old 85lbs junior division and boxed his way through the competition, reaching the finals and taking first place.

"It was some hard competition, because everybody wants to be the champion and nobody wants to lose." said Luisjoe.  "I mean you box some of the best boxers, champion to champion  from these other states. There are times that you have to ask yourself, do I really want to be here, because you train so hard and to come up short really hurts, I know I've been there."

Now LuisJoe is training for the National Silver Gloves tournament on January 30th thru February 2nd 2013 in Independence, Missouri. Coach Luis (JOE) Ybarra and coach Pedro Arellano, and Coach Leo Rivera from the Ybarras Boxing Club,  see Luisjoe Jr's hard work in and out of the gym,  Coach pedro says that Luisjoe deserves all he worked for because this was his 4th consecutive State Silver Glove title, and to top it off with the regional title is great. He's also won 3 consecutive State Golden Gloves titles, #2 National Junior Golden Glove title, 3 State Junior Olympic titles and #3 and #2 Ringside Worlds titles.

We are so proud of his hard work and commitment.  Also we would like to recognize Kyara Velez who won the the Colorado State silver gloves in the 11yr old, 101lbs female, but did not go to the regional because her father had just returned from Afghanistan and wanted to spend Christmas time with family in San Antonio TX.

Company Press Release

Tax Season is just around the corner. As you get ready for the filing season, I just wanted to drop you a quick line and let you about a few changes in Tax Man To You, LLC. None of them will affect the service you are used to receiving. What has changed is our address and our referral program.

First, let me tell you about the new referral program. In the past, I have paid out a referral bonus for every new client you sent my way. Starting this year, I will be changing the incentive program. Now, instead of paying you cash at tax season end, I am going to reimburse you for your paid tax return (up to $150) for sending me five new customers. Make sure they tell me you sent them, and after the fifth one, I will reimburse you for your payment of your tax return up to $150. This will make it easier for me to keep track of, and could drastically increase how much you receive from me at the end of tax season.

The other change is my address. I am no longer at the Barn Owl Drive address, but instead am working from my new home at 1649 Keaton Lane in Colorado Springs. This move has given me a better office to work in with easier access for you, my clients. I will still be offering mobile service for those who find it hard to get out. For my clients who find it easier to meet me in Fountain, I have made arrangements with the owners of Cowboy Espresso Café (across from Loaf and Jug next to the Post Office) to have appointments there on Wednesdays. Jim and Chris will even work a deal with you on a great cup of coffee or latte.

Thanks to you, the business has grown almost 100% each year!! That is not anything I have done, but it is you that keep this company growing. So remember, new address, new referral program, and a new year. Electronic Filing begins on Jan 30, 2013 so call soon and get an appointment. I look forward to serving you again this year, and in the years to come. Thank you for your continued trust.

George Sleeman,
Owner, Tax Man To You, LLC
