Our expertise allows us to address these issues as they arise within the realm of your personal or professional life.

  • Innocent Spouse Relief – Sometimes, the IRS tries to collect taxes from you if your former spouse owes them. We have various relief options to help you avoid having to pay.
  • IRS Investigations – Not all IRS officers are fair in conducting their investigations. If you feel you are being harassed, we can help to counteract the unacceptable behaviors.
  • Late Taxes – Filing your taxes late or not at all could result in the IRS taking the return or garnishing wages to receive what they are owed. We’ll help you work around this.
