We Settle Tax Debts for Taxpayers
– Bill M
Offer in Compromise is a special IRS program that allows you to settle your IRS tax debt for a percentage of what you owe. Owe $12,000? Settle for $1500. Numbers like these are possible through the IRS Offer in Compromise solution.
But this is a field of tax law practice that is filled with dangers for the ordinary taxpayer. Why? Because there are literally dozens of so-called “companies” offering you their Offer in Compromise service… if you’re willing to pay thousands up front for their fees. Why is this dangerous? Because you don’t find if you even qualify until after they have filed the Offer in Compromise. These unscrupulous companies want you to pay them money first, find out later. Want to see how a real law firm gets results? Read on.
But we’re different because we’re professional tax lawyers. We do it the right way: we qualify you first before you spend money to try the Offer in Compromise program. We qualify you first and this step doesn’t cost you a dime. We see if you qualify at absolutely no charge to you.
How does this free qualification work?
We can spend about 20 minutes with you on the phone and tell you if you qualify to settle your tax debt through the IRS special rules. If we find that you do qualify we will also tell you how much you might settle your tax bill for. Two important things to know about our service: (1) John Ellsworth is a tax audit attorney and knows the tax law far, far better than any of the so-called professionals in the so-called tax settlement companies. (2) Next point, what we are offering here is free to you. We are not a “tax company” trying to charge you fees up front to file an Offer in Compromise only to learn you don’t qualify. No high pressure, either, just a helpful tax lawyer. We suggest you call now 1-(888)551-0257 and let us pre-qualify you for the OIC program. Remember, this is a free service, no obligation.
Here are some of the results we have obtained for clients:
Our client was the owner of a mortgage brokerage that went out of business with the disastrous real estate market. The IRS came after the owner after the company was unable to catch up overdue payroll taxes. The owner disappeared so the IRS came after our client, the CEO.
