Millions of U.S. citizens find themselves at odds with the IRS. In fact over $100,000,000,000 (that's 100 billion dollars) is owed to the IRS in taxes, penalties and interest.

Dealing with IRS problems is tough enough without having to worry about who is going to represent you before the IRS. You need a professional who knows how the IRS works and what steps can be taken to protect you, your family and your assets. Don't underestimate the importance of your decision on retaining the right professional; most IRS cases take a fair amount of time to resolve.

IRS problems are a very personal type of problem. Possibly you know of someone else who is suffering from IRS problems and does not know where to turn for help. Many people live with IRS problems for years, assuming that nothing can be done to bring about a solution. We focus on helping resolve IRS tax problems through various settlement methods.

If you or someone you know is currently struggling with an IRS problem and need immediate help, we would be happy to meet in confidence for a free, no-obligation initial consultation to explain possible solutions. Don't delay any longer, call us today at (281) 488-1854 and ask for the next available appointment.

We look forward to helping you resolve your IRS problem.

Q: What is tax problem resolution?
A: Tax problem resolution is a process where we evaluate a taxpayer's situation regarding a specific IRS tax matter, and develop a plan to resolve the issue and negotiate with the IRS on a taxpayer's behalf to gain IRS approval and resolution.

Q: How do I know if I qualify for tax problem resolution?
A: Taxpayers who are tired of receiving IRS tax notices or phone calls and who want to resolve the problem qualify for our services.

Q: The IRS keeps calling and sending me letters. What can I do?
A: You could ignore the letters and the situation with the IRS will most likely get worse. Or you can contact us for a free, initial 1/2 hour consultation to discuss options to assist you.

Q: Can the IRS take my house and bank account?
A: In most instances, the IRS cannot gain title to your house to satisfy a tax debt. The IRS can levy your bank account and require your bank to deduct funds from your account to satisfy a tax debt.

Q: Could I handle my IRS problems myself?
A: Yes you could - but wouldn't you want an experienced CPA who understands the IRS tax law and who will negotiate on your behalf with your best interests in mind? The IRS wants to collect as much tax as they can in the fastest amount of time. Our focus is to save you as much tax as possible, and allow you to spend your time each day doing what you enjoy, instead of worrying about a tax matter or dealing with an IRS agent who may not be willing to negotiate with you.

Q: How do you charge for your services?
A: Our fees are based on the number of hours spent performing our services at a rate of $160 per hour. We will attempt to keep our time to a minimum and will ask for your assistance where applicable in order to minimize our time. We may require a retainer to begin work on your case, depending on the circumstances. For your convenience, we also accept VISA, American Express and Mastercard.

Q: How do I get started?
A: Call to schedule a free, initial 1/2 hour consultation. If we find that you qualify for our services, we will begin work on your case after receiving a retainer.
