"Because IRS Problems Don't Go Away On Their Own."

Are You Ready for
Lasting Relief from
Your Tax Problems?

You probably have many questions, but
you're in the right place.

Explore these steps and requirements of the tax help process to learn more about our commitment to you.

Step 1: Free 30 Minute Consultation
with a Tax Help Professional
to Discuss Your Goals.

Be ready to explain the ideal result for you and your family. This will help us tailor a specific plan for your unique circumstances that meets your expectations.

Before our first meeting, we will send you detailed information about what to bring with you to maximize your free consultation.

Step 2: Assure You Are In Filing
Compliance

IRS debt relief programs require that you have all due returns on file prior to granting lasting relief.

We will help you file overdue personal and business tax returns of all types, even if you are missing documentation or need bookkeeping assistance.

Step 3: We Take Over All
Communication With the IRS.

You won't have to speak to the IRS again. Our clients sign an IRS Form 2848 (Power of Attorney). This document allows us to take over all communications with the IRS and negotiate with them on your behalf.

Step 4: Investigate Your Problem and Devise a Personalized Solution Strategy.

Even if you don't know the full extent of your problem, don't worry. The Power of Attorney allows us to discover:

  • How much do they say you owe,
  • How long the IRS has to collect from you,
  • And how close the IRS is to levying you/taking your property.

From there, we will analyze your financial condition and outline for you the next steps you can take to end your IRS problem.

Step 5: Submit Your Customized Tax Solution

Your personalized action plan may make use of any of the following relief types that we will present to the IRS:

  • Offers in Compromise of various types (Settlements with the IRS);
  • Installment Agreements (including Partial Pay Installments, Direct Debit - lien release installments and Complex Agreements for debts above $50,000);
  • Payroll Tax Relief (including the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty)
  • Penalty and Associated Interest Abatement (Forgiveness)
  • Uncollectible Status
  • Innocent/Injured Spouse Relief
  • Audit Relief (including Audit Reconsideration)
  • IRS Appeals
Step 6: Equip You to Stay in Ongoing Tax Compliance

Most IRS relief programs require the taxpayer to stay current in filings and paying any amounts due in the future.

We are your local, one-stop solution to solving tax problems and keeping them solved in the future. In other words, we want to assist you with your taxes for life.

We offer return preparation, bookeeping, payroll and corporate structuring on a continuing basis.

Our 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a lawyer?

Yes, the Offer in Compromise process can be very complex. Our office has other tax professionals (CPA’s and Enrolled Agents) who can assist as well. Tax relief is not something you should try to pursue on your own, as your financial and emotional future is at stake. An experienced Tax Help Lawyer will help you achieve your goals for yourself and your family.

How much can I save with the IRS’ Offer in Compromise program?

Offer in Compromise is determined by whether or not the IRS can collect the full amount of liability (including interest and penalties) within its deadlines. As each taxpayer’s financial situation is different, each settlement is different. The IRS is the final decision-maker of an individual’s eligibility for this program. The average accepted Offer in Compromise in our office is about 10% of what the taxpayer owed. There are other IRS programs that may also achieve your goals if you are ineligible for the Offer in Compromise program.

When will my case be over?

Compliance and payment are a lifetime commitment. That is why we want to help you from year to year with your taxes. Currently, the IRS is taking from 6-9 months to process Offers in Compromise alone. Meanwhile, new collection attempts (levy attempts, for instance) are stayed/stopped. Most cases that don’t require appeals are over in 12-18 months. You will need to stay in filing and paying compliance to make sure that all the relief you have accomplished stays in force.

How much are your fees?

Many different factors are at issue in the fee, including our inability to accept other clients and other employment and in consideration of our power of attorney staying in full force and effect during representation. Most importantly, we will quote you a flat rate, ie there are no on-going monthly bills in the great majority of cases. The average liability of $50,000 would be about $5,000 in fees. An average liability of $100,000 would be about $10,000 in fees. Payment plans and financing is available for qualified clients.

Why should I choose your firm?

We are Oklahomans for Oklahomans. The IRS works through its Oklahoma field agents and officers. Your best representation will come from Oklahoma tax professionals that deal with these local IRS representatives every day. We also offer in-house payment plans or we can refer you to lending institutions who offer financing to qualified individuals for longer re-payment terms.

Why Choose Us

It is important to know before you start tackling your tax debt that the so-called "tax professionals" you hear about on TV or the radio cannot always work the miracles that they claim to be able to do.

Even if the professional is a former IRS "agent", there are certain things that even the most experienced tax "agent" cannot accomplish. For example:

  • It is not always possible to save "pennies on the dollar". What many of these national chains do not disclose is that most of the time, the Offer in Compromise will be rejected, and that's even if you qualify. Not taking the best route for your situation right from the beginning will end up costing your more in the long run.
  • There is no way to become an Offer in Compromise candidate without having your IRS master tax file analyzed. The entire file must be analyzed by a licensed professional to ensure that you really are eligible. Simply checking your assets, income, and debt over the phone will only do one thing—determine whether or not you will be able to pay the "salesman" who advertises tax debt relief.
  • Just because a company employs "ex-IRS agents" does not mean that it can benefit your situation. There is a major difference between types of IRS officials. A Revenue Officer is a person who handles situations where back taxes are owed. Revenue Agents or Auditors are tax examiners who take tax returns and apply applicable state and federal tax laws. Depending on your unique situation, the agents advertisied may not be of any help. Always ask for credentials and research the company or lawyer in question before hiring anyone to handle your case.
