                     CLIENT ENGAGEMENT LETTER – Tax Year 2005
I have engaged Myslajek, Ltd. to prepare my individual federal and state income tax returns for the year ended
December 31, 2005. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide Myslajek, Ltd. with all of the required
information in order to complete my tax return. In that regard, I state that, to the best of my knowledge and
belief:
    1.  I have provided true, correct and complete information regarding my income as listed on the attached Forms W-2, 1099
        and/or attached written summaries. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide all necessary information to complete
        the returns. I will retain for a minimum of seven years all documents, receipts, canceled checks and other records required to
        substantiate the items of income and expense claimed on my return.
    2. I have provided true, correct and complete information regarding amounts to claim as tax deductions, and have maintained
        written documentation supporting all amounts, including calendars, logbooks and receipts. I understand that if a question
        arises regarding the interpretation of tax law, and a conflict exists between the tax authorities’ interpretation of the law and
        other supportable positions, that Myslajek, Ltd. will use professional judgment in resolving the issues. I understand that
        Myslajek, Ltd. will follow whatever position I request, so long as it is consistent with the codes and regulations and
        interpretations that have been promulgated. If the IRS should later contest the position taken, there may be an assessment of
        additional tax plus interest and penalties. I further understand that Myslajek, Ltd. will assume no liability for such additional
        penalties or assessments.
    3. I understand that taxing authorities may examine the returns, and that documentation should be retained to support the
        information I provide to Myslajek, Ltd., especially business travel and entertainment deductions, business use percentage of
        autos and other assets, barter activities, and charitable contributions over $250. I understand that penalties may be imposed
        on returns that are late, underpaid, or incorrect. I further understand that if I have any questions as to the type of records and
        documents required, I can ask Myslajek, Ltd. for advice in that regard.
    4. I understand that Myslajek, Ltd. will not verify any information I provide, that Myslajek, Ltd. may require clarification
        or additional information, and that Myslajek, Ltd. will not be responsible for disallowed deductions or the inclusion of
        additional unreported income or any resulting taxes, penalties, or interest.
    5. I understand that I will be charged an additional fee if Myslajek, Ltd. is asked to assist or represent me in a tax examination
        or inquiry. I understand that, in the event of preparer error, I am responsible for additional tax that may be due, and the
        extent of Myslajek, Ltd.’s responsibility is to pay for any penalty that the IRS or state revenue department may assess.
    6. I will contact Myslajek, Ltd. immediately if I discover additional information that will lead to a change in my return, or if I
        receive any letters from the IRS or state taxing authorities.
    7. I understand that upon request, Myslajek, Ltd. will put all tax advice in writing. Any unwritten advice may be tentative,
        incomplete, or not fully reviewed.
    8. I understand that my bill from Myslajek, Ltd. will be due and payable upon completion of these returns, and that
        additional services will not be performed until the bill for these services is paid in full. Likewise, I understand that
        any past-due balance must be paid before my 2005 returns are prepared.
    9. If there are other services or tax returns that I expect Myslajek, Ltd. to prepare, such as estate, gift, sales, fiduciary, property,
        or other states or cities, I will note them at the bottom of this letter.
    10. I understand that Myslajek, Ltd. must receive all of my tax information as soon as possible, but not later than April 1,
        2006 to ensure that Myslajek, Ltd. will have adequate time to review my data by April 15, 2006. If Myslajek, Ltd. has
        not received all of my information by April 1, 2006 and/or my return is not completed by April 15, 2006, I may be
        subject to late filing or late payment penalties.
    11. I understand that it is the policy of Myslajek, Ltd. to electronically file all individual tax returns. I will return Form 8879 or
        Form 8453 as well as any additional required forms deemed necessary for electronically processing of the return in a timely
        manner, as my return cannot be sent to the proper agencies until Myslajek, Ltd. receives the above-mentioned forms.
    12. I understand that it is my responsibility to carefully examine and approve my completed tax returns.


The terms described in this letter are acceptable and are hereby agreed to and shall remain in effect until terminated by either party in
writing.
