YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Many of our clients face these same kinds of problems. Many of our existing clients started attempting to solve their tax problems by responding to one of the popular radio or TV ads promising amazing 10 cents on the dollar resolutions. Or worse, tried to meet the IRS on their own thinking they could just talk it out with the IRS or FTB.
WATCH OUT FOR LARGE UP FRONT RETAINERS
Many firms promise 10 cents on the dollar. The problem is that this only works for a very select few. The vast majority of hard working taxpayers do not negotiate at 10 cents on the dollar the firms who advertise this take very high up front retainers before they really know if are one of those rare 10 cents on the dollar cases. More often than not an offer is submitted and rejected and the ultimate outcome is a much less expensive simpler installment agreement. In other cases a bankruptcy filing is a better route. In either case, large firms do not return their up-front retainer once that is discovered.
WE FULLY ASSESS YOU AT A MUCH LOWER COST
Our secret is to get to know you a little better before recommending a course of action. We also do not send you down a course that is unlikely to succeed only to collect our retainer. We generally do take a small retainer but end up billing you as we go. The end result is a well thought out strategy not an expensive shot in the dark offer in compromise followed by the same moderate approach that should have been implemented in the beginning.
