You've received a letter from the IRS stating that you owe money and have a deadline to pay up or else! It seems hopeless. You can't sleep, and the fear of the unknown is crippling your life. It's no wonder. The IRS has never been accused of fairness.

They hold all the cards – you are a pawn if you try to deal with them alone.

However, there is help. A Tax Resolution Specialist is an enrolled agent licensed to practice before the IRS. They are experts who intervene on your behalf and negotiate with the IRS. Finally, someone on your side that knows how to stand up to the government. They know the law. Sometimes, they might even get your tax problem forgiven.

You'll find a series of stories about other taxpayers in this book. Many of them were in more trouble than you, and how we got them through the problems without losing everything they worked all their lives to accomplish. If you're ready to get a good night's sleep again, read this short book and then call for a no-cost consultation on how to get the problem behind you.
