Jesus Zacarias Abikarram, EA, NTPI Fellow

Jesus Zacarias Abikarram was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and moved to New York City at the age of one. He moved in 2004 to South Florida where he currently resides. Jesus is happily married to Lourdes Abikarram, with 3 daughters, Katherine, Anais & Kayla Marie.

Jesus began his career at just 18 years old when he opened his first office in  Bronx, NY, offering Insurance and Tax Preparation; serving as the broker and the tax preparer. In 1996 he added Life Insurance services with New York Life where he was recognized with several awards for his dedication and compassion in the industry.

In April 1998, he was asked to be an Allstate agent, a position he held as Exclusive Agent from 1998 to 2017. Tax preparation continued during these years with Allstate and in 2009, he purchased 3 Liberty Tax Franchises.  Jesus served as a coach and business advisor to new owners of franchises.

In 2018 in anticipation of the 10th Anniversary, he stepped away from the Franchise world and “Freedom Tax Resolution” was born where Jesus continues to assist taxpayers in solving their problems with the IRS (Tax Relief).  His experience in taxation as ENROLLED AGENT with the IRS, Certification as Speaker, Coach, Trainer with the John Maxwell Team and his University Career from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in “Security Management” and Computer Science from Monroe College,  allows him to take into account all aspects of a case of resolution and analyze them from several different points of view to diligently solve conflicts with the IRS in favor of taxpayers.

The most recent accomplishment was the Publishing of his first book “Free yourself from the IRS” which rapidly became an Amazon International Best Seller within days of publishing.  The book is currently being properly and grammatically translated into Spanish.

Jesus has served as President of the Hallandale Beach Chamber of Commerce, Area Governor of the Rotary Club, Chairman of Rotary Means Business Fellowship, and Business Ambassador in Hallandale Beach, FL.
