Our Process

What happens during the consultation?

Free Consultation and Financial Analysis

15 Minutes

  • We will ask you for details on your current tax situation and what collection action the IRS is using.
  • We will explain your options.
  • If your situation requires professional assistance, we will explain what you can expect if you hire us and provide you with a quote for our services.

You will speak with a licensed tax professional, not a sales person.

Do I have to decide during the consultation?

No. We will send you the information discussed for your review. You start the process when you are ready.

Is my call confidential?

Yes, all information is private.

Do you guarantee results?

Yes, our services are backed by a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

The purpose of the initial consultation is to verify that we can help you resolve your IRS tax problem.  We will only take your case if we are confident we can reach a resolution.

Research and Investigation

4-7 Days

Using the Power of Attorney, we will complete a Compliance Check with the IRS to determine what liabilities are on your tax account and your filing requirements. This allows our licensed Case Managers to plan a strategy for your resolution.

Duration of Case

Varies 2-12 Months

Depending on the scope of your case and the resolution, it could take anywhere from 2-12 months. Should we enter you in an Installment Agreement, it could only take a month to two depending on the number of tax return filing needing completion. On the other hand, should we submit and Offer in Compromise to negotiate a settlement, it could take up to a year for the IRS/state to review.

Can you remove my penalties and interest they have assessed?

Accrued interest cannot be removed unless a settlement is obtained. Penalties can be abated.

The IRS will apply penalties when a taxpayer is out of compliance. The most common are:

  • Failure to File: If you fail to file your tax return on time, the IRS will impose a penalty of 5% of the original balance owed per month up to a max of 25%.
  • Failure to Pay: If you do not pay the balance owed by the deadline, the IRS will impose a penalty of .5% per month of the original balance up to a maximum of 25%.
  • Estimated Tax Penalty: The IRS will impose a penalty for failure to make sufficient prepayments. A common misunderstanding is that we pay our taxes once a year. However, the system is actually a “pay as you go” system. Failure to make estimated tax payments or withhold from wages is considered delinquent payment and can result in penalties.
  • Accuracy-Related Penalty: If the IRS has reason to believe that a mistake you made on your tax return was negligent or a substantial understatement, they can impose a penalty. The penalty is equal to 20% of the portion of the understatement attributable to the error.
