About The TaxProblemSolver:

We are Tax Law Professionals
Who Know all the Ins and Outs
of Dealing with IRS Tax Problems.

It seems as if everywhere you look a tax consultant, usually some out-of-state, faceless company, is promising “pennies-on-the-dollar” tax settlements and “guaranteed results”. Look closely … does the company you’re thinking of hiring employ a tax attorney, a CPA, a former IRS Appeals Officer, Enrolled Agents, and a caring, professional staff to compliment them? Does he or she usually handle tax law full-time or is it a sideline for them? Do you meet with a licensed tax attorney, or just a salesperson earning a commission? You have a right to know!
