Dealing with the IRS

The IRS is not your friend. They are a powerful government entity that is charged with collecting taxes. The IRS has the authority and the enforcement tools to collect taxes, penalties, and interest from taxpayers like you. The employees of the IRS work in the best interest of the government. We are here to protect your interests. We treat each client’s tax problem as unique and spend the time to learn how their problem developed and find a solution to resolve it.


We know your rights and responsibilities. We know how to work through the administrative bureaucracy to help you. We are in your corner. We will use all our skills to protect your rights and to ensure that you receive the representation you need when dealing with the IRS.


Since 1987, we have been representing taxpayers before the IRS and have made it possible for clients to get back on track with their financial lives without the overwhelming burden of unpaid taxes.



With just one phone call we eliminated a $50,000 tax debt for a business client and have helped many individual taxpayers eliminate and/or lower their tax burden.


We don’t quit on you. We represented a taxpayer in an audit that lasted over a year and in the end the taxpayer’s audit ended as a “NO CHANGE” which means they didn’t owe the IRS any additional taxes.
