When the curtain falls, Maya Bethany is left with a conniving ex-husband, a string of temp jobs from hell, and a tax debt she couldn’t pay off in a million years.  Enter a no-nonsense tax attorney who’d rather be rescuing horses.  Fourteen years of tax cases has left him with a hard and cynical shell while she is ready to do battle, confident that they will win.  The title is from a section of the tax code designed to provide relief for taxpayers who were duped and mislead by an ex-spouse.

Praise for Willful Avoidance:

“I truly enjoyed reading “Willful Avoidance”. Knowing it was written from a true experience, I was amazed at the length of time and diligence needed to prove one’s innocence. I loved JT Twissel’s sense of humor and experienced several ‘laugh out loud’ moments throughout the book. Good read!”
