Our team of qualified Tax Attorneys and tax experts have the skills and experience necessary to resolve your IRS and State tax problems. Many taxpayers have attempted to negotiate with the IRS themselves, or hired their local accountant or tax preparer, but end up in a worse situation.

Our Tax Attorneys are Certified Tax Resolution Specialists, which means they have additional training, knowledge and experience regarding IRS tax resolution.

Since 2008 we have helped our clients as an honest and ethical company. We don't have commissioned salesman or gimmicks. We are an A+ rated company and accredited business by the Better Business Bureau

During our free consultation we will explain the steps necessary to resolve your tax problem. We will provide you with a no-obligation service agreement that will clearly state our flat fee and responsibilities as your representative.

Direct Tax Relief has achieved outstanding results for our clients because we only focus on solving tax problems

The Offer in Compromise program was created by Congress to give taxpayer's the ability to settle their tax debt for less. In May of 2012 the IRS announced the "Fresh Start" program, which will allow more Offers to be accepted. However, most taxpayers do not understand the lengthy and difficult process involved from beginning to end to have an Offer in Compromise accepted.

Many taxpayer's believe they can negotiate their own Offer in Compromise with the IRS. Several months later they find out that their Offer has been denied because they don't have the expertise or knowledge required to negotiate with difficult IRS agents. It has been proven that having representation drastically increases your chances of the IRS accepting your Offer in Compromise.

Besides the Offer in Compromise program, there are several other programs available to resolve your IRS and/or State back taxes. If you have an IRS wage garnishment, we can usually have it released within 24 hours. If you haven't filed income tax returns for several years, we are here to help! There are new programs available that will stop an IRS tax lien from being filed. We guarantee that your assets and wages will be protected from seizure or levy while we are representing you and working out an agreement with the IRS.

We have also been successful at having penalties removed through the Penalty Abatement program. Many taxpayer's are not aware that the IRS has 10 years to collect a debt. If you are near the 10 year deadline, having an experienced Tax Attorney handle this on your behalf is crucial. An Installment Agreement is another option available to solve IRS tax problems. The Currently Not Collectible status is available for taxpayers that qualify.
