Frequently Asked Questions

I understand the case analysis is free, but how much is it going to cost me if I hire your firm?

Great question. And you are right – the case analysis is absolutely free. With the case analysis, we will be able to tell you exactly what your options are to resolve your tax situation – Josh will also be able to offer you a guarantee – he will get the results promised, or your money back. Typically, our clients pay a flat rate for legal fees of around $2000 – $4000. We also offer payment plans.

Do you really guarantee results?

Yes – that is “for real.” Josh is not like other attorneys. He will put his money where his mouth is. As a licensed IRS tax relief attorney, he understands that other firms or even unlicensed scams have left a bad taste in your mouth. He wants to earn your trust before he earns your business. During your free case analysis, Josh will tell you the results that he will guarantee. If we can’t deliver – we refund your money. Take a screen shot of this if you want – it is legally binding! 🙂

I've got a ton of advertising from tax resolution groups. Are you really a tax attorney?

We hear this one a lot! Yes, Josh is an actual tax attorney. His headquarters are located in Ohio, but he is licensed to practice before the IRS for anyone in the United States. That means that he represents taxpayers before the IRS in all 50 states.

Oh, and he is also licensed before the United States tax court too.

What is the free case analysis that you are offering?

Yeah, that’s a great question. First, the case analysis is where we will pull your IRS tax files – – – this pulls the curtain back on what the government has in your file. We will see exactly what your specific tax situation is and determine the best resolution for you. This process generally takes just a day or two. Once we have those files, Josh will review them and put together a report for you outlining his findings and recommendations. He will jump on a call with you to go over this and to answer any questions you may have. Josh will also tell you exactly what the flat rate legal fee would be if you wanted to hire us and exactly how much you are going to save in taxes (your savings is almost always higher than the legal fee). That is the “phase 1” as we call it – the free case analysis.

If you have a tax emergency (wage garnishment, audit, bank levy), we can start working on day 1 – Josh would just consolidate everything for you so your situation can be handled immediately. Generally, if you have a tax emergency, we can get it resolved within a day or two.

I've heard about the IRS Fresh Start - what is that?

The IRS Fresh Start program was an initiative started years ago by the IRS to help taxpayers start over after large sums of back taxes. The Offer in Compromise is part of that program. With an IRS Offer in Compromise, we can submit a settlement offer to the IRS to permanently settle your back taxes. It is true that you can literally settle for pennies on the dollar. However, the IRS uses a very complex formula to determine what you should offer. Your offer is based on available net assets and your future income potential. Factors such as age, household size, and location all factor into this analysis. We submit a lot of these settlements for our clients with great success. Josh will be able to tell you if you likely qualify for a settlement . . . and if you are on the fence of qualifying, Josh knows legal ways to get your income and expenses where they need to be for qualification purposes.

Besides the IRS Offer in Compromise settlement, are there other IRS back tax options?

Besides the Offer in Compromise (settlement), there is (1) financial hardship (the IRS closes your account and stops trying to collect), (2) installment agreements with penalty removal (we get $1,000’s in penalties removed and set up a long-term installment agreement that can be as long as 84 months), (3) amended returns/appeals (sometimes we can lower or eliminate the tax bill just by amending the return or filing an appeal), (4) innocent spouse relief (if it wasn’t your fault, but was your spouse’s fault, we can pursue that option for relief), and (5) Collection Statute Expiration Date (occasionally, you may be close to the statute of limitations date, so we can petition to have the tax removed if the IRS doesn’t remove it automatically).

Josh has a lot of experience determining the best course of action – whatever he decided with you will likely save you a ton of money in taxes. Best of all, he does the case analysis for free, so you will know ahead of time what your options are without having to pay a dime!

I know you're an IRS Tax Relief Attorney, but do you do IRS Tax Audits?

YES! And the sooner you contact us, the better. There are many deadlines involved with audits. A lot of issues can be avoided the sooner you contact us. Sometimes, simply having an attorney involved with the process will get you better results because the government does not want to deal with appeals.

You do NOT have to talk to the IRS once we are involved with your audit. We will represent you on your behalf.

Please don’t put this off – if you are under audit, contact us immediately. Even if the audit is done, you have a very limited amount of time (generally less than 90 days) to file an appeal – – – YOU WANT TO FILE THE APPEAL! Please get a hold of Josh as soon as you can – the results will almost always be better.
