Nightmare of filing multiple delinquent returns made easy!! – I failed to file my returns for the past eight years and the IRS ended up filing for me in which they did not count the many credits and deductions in which I was entitled to. The IRS assessed me with over 680k in back taxes and penalties and interest. I knew I was entitled to many deductions and credits and was looking for a way to reduce my tax liability and eliminate my penalties. The IRS also threatened to levy my bank account until all the taxes and penalties were paid off. I was terrified and anxious. I was also looking to get married and buy a home, but was terrified in getting my fiancé involved in such a mess. Hearing horror stories regarding “tax relief” companies, I was very hesitant in hiring any tax company. But after being referred by many satisfied clients of Strategic Tax Lawyers, I took the dive and gave them a call. I spoke to one of their senior consultants and was told of all the options they had to offer .I also learned that they were an actual law firm and NOT a tax relief company. The reason why they are so successful I because they are very selective on who they represent, and they only take on clients when they know there will be a high chance of success. I was accepted by Strategic Tax Lawyers they quickly had their tax professionals file my delinquent returns. The first thing the attorneys did was protect my bank account. The attorneys declared representation to the IRS and got the IRS to postpone the bank levy. Then Strategic Tax Lawyers had their tax professionals file and successfully attach the deductions and tax credits which I rightfully deserved!! After filing, negotiated with the IRS and got all the penalties and interest on penalties waived!!! After my debt was substantially reduced to the 50k, I wrote a check to the IRS and paid off my debt!
THANK YOU STL!! – I retained Strategic Tax Lawyers and could not be more satisfied! Before retaining STL, I paid over 25k to one “tax relief” company since there prices were reasonable however, after one month, the company went bankrupt and no one would answer their phones. Besides, I was negligent and did not do my research on that company, and after reviewing many negative reviews which the tax relief company had, and all its customers which they made promises to, I couldn’t feel more stupider. Feeling distressed and frustrated over my tax situation, I decided to do proper research regarding different tax relief companies. I called my attorney and he referred me over to Strategic Tax Lawyers and explained to me off their fantastic reputation in the industry. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way between the difference of a nationwide LAW FIRM and a “tax relief” company. Strategic Tax Lawyers is an actual law firm which is regulated by the state bar. They do not make empty promises and they let me know exactly what my options were. I retained them as my attorney and they were able to properly represent me to the IRS. I wish I found Strategic Tax Lawyers earlier and hope that no one goes through the troubles ive been through with “tax relief” companies.
Never been happier – I moved to the USA from the Middle east over 10 years ago and currently am a citizen. I always filed on time, payed my taxes which were due, and never had a issue with the IRS. However, these few past months I have been having nightmares. I currently own many bonds and different types of investments abroad and I have over 4.5 million in my bank account abroad. I did not report these amounts on my returns thinking that there was no need since I earned all that money abroad. However my bank threatened to report it if I didn’t and was extremely frightened of criminal prosecution since I have not reported it for the past 10 years. Dealing with foreign account issues is extremely complex and a delicate situation so I decided to hire the best out there. I flew to Los Angeles CA, and met with the Law Firm of Mouris Behboud, of Strategic Tax Lawyers. Their team of attorneys and staff were extremely professional and I was very impressed with what they do. They clearly explained to me my options available and I immediately hired them. The attorneys were very sensitive in handling my case and made sure that I properly was entered to the amnesty program which the IRS currently provides. They negotiated and greatly reduced the penalties and now I am able to freely live in the U.S. without having any worries from the IRS. They truly handled my case from scratch to finish and I am in great gratitude to them!!
Amazing Staff – A year ago, I had a revenue officer visit my place of business and requiring me to pay my 941s (payroll taxes) in which I was behind on. Going through a tough economy and a loss in my family, I was behind five quarters of payroll taxes and the revenue agent threatened to close my business if I didn’t pay over 400k within three days. My CPA referred me over to Strategic Tax Lawyers as the owner is a former IRS attorney. I actually had a team of “pitbull” attorneys handling my case and they were able to protect my rights as a tax payer. I quickly hired them and they declared representation t o the revenue officer and got my business protected. They also got me on payment plan which was negotiated on MY terms in which I was able to afford. I want to thank the team of attorneys at Strategic Tax Lawyers. They are really good at what they do!!!
FBAR – As a retired businessman, I used to travel to many foreign states for business. I accumulated vast sums of money and opened various bank accounts in different countries. When I retired, I heard of the IRS cracking down on foreign accounts and charging many people with felonies for failure to report the funds in foreign accounts. Being retired with several grandchildren was no help and I was nervous and spent many restless nights debating whether I should report the funds to the IRS, or I should not report anything. I was also terrified of losing huge amounts of money in penalties if I did report the various foreign bank accounts to the IRS. I consulted many attorneys and tax professionals and was told that one of the leading tax law firms in Strategic Tax Lawyers. I flew from Boston to Los Angeles to meet with the attorneys in Strategic Tax Lawyers and was extremely impressed in what I saw. The attorneys are extremely professional and experts in what they do. They advised me on the options available to me and I retained them as my attorneys that very same day! They represented me through the whole process and I ended up with only paying a five percent penalty! Now I fully understand why Strategic Tax Lawyers are known to be one of the leading Tax Law firm. The success rates and stories which they have only prove it. They provide results with professionalism in every case they take on! It was worth flying to Los Angeles to meet the attorneys! Thank you STL!
Offshore – Thank you to the wonderful team of attorneys at Strategic Tax Lawyers. I had over five million in offshore funds in India and did not report a dime to the IRS. I was nervous and worried about the amount of penalties the IRS may impose on me for failure to report the amount. I also heard of many cases where there was criminal persecution for failure to report offshore accounts. Restless and nervous, I called Strategic Tax Lawyers since they are known in the tax world in having one of the best reputations. I had a confidential consultation with them and also met the lead partner and attorney, Mouris Behboud. Mouris used to be an attorney for the IRS and speaking to an attorney that actually used to represent the IRS made me feel a lot more comfortable since I knew I was in professional hands. At first, I was extremely nervous that the law firm would decline taking my case since they decline most cases which come in front of them. Fortunately, the law firm decided to take my case since they saw I was very sincere. The amazing team of attorneys worked tirelessly on my case for over 12 months and they were successful in negotiation a five percent penalty on my offshore account. Dealing with offshore accounts can be a tiring process, but the attorneys successfully represented me in front of the IRS and protected my accounts and placed me into the program where there would be no criminal prosecution. Once again, thank you Mouris and the fantastic team.
Highly Recommended – I hired Strategic Tax Lawyers for my business because we fell behind on our sales tax for 8 quarters. . I was scared of the state shutting down my business and I called Strategic Tax Lawyers. I hired them immediately as I was very concerned about the state taking action against my business. Strategic Tax Lawyers immediately went ahead and protected all my assets and the business. Then they negotiated with the state a plausible payment plan to help me catch up on my sales tax. They also provided me with great strategies and consulting in ways to help ensure my business stays current on every quarters sales tax. I highly recommend Strategic Tax Lawyers to all those who need attorneys to handle their tax problems. They are an actual LAW FIRM!! Not like those tax relief companies which promise the world but don’t deliver.
Extremely Professional – Having my tax problem being handled by Strategic Tax Law firm was an excellent experience. I failed to file my income tax returns for all the 1099s ive received for the past 5 years. My CPA reffered me over to the law firm and I was told that they were the best in the industry. The owner of the law firm actually used to be an attorney for the IRS, and now is working private!! I decided to hire them since they have a fantastic reputation and I couldn’t be happier. Strategic Tax Lawyers helped me re-file the delinquent returns which I missed. They got my taxes reduced and got the penalties also gone!! I paid the remaining in a lumps some and now I don’t have the IRS breathing down my back!!
Great Service – I hired Strategic Tax Lawyers to handle my tax issue a few months ago. I fell back on paying my income taxes for the past 4 years and the IRS sent me a notice to levy my bank account. I did not know what to do since the amount to pay it off was huge and it included lots of penalties. I called Strategic Tax Lawyers and hired them right away. Hiring them was the best decision ive made in regards to my tax problem. The first thing they did was claim representation for me and protected all my assets. The IRS did not touch my bank account thanks to them. Next got me waived on all the penalties and they put me on a reasonable payment plan to pay off my taxes. Now Im happy and so is the IRS!!!
Situation with no hope resolved. – My accountant tried calling the IRS and to resolve the issue, but it seemed like he did not know what he was doing. I called a few tax relief companies and I finally settled with one specific relief company. The agent told me that if I hire them and pay them a fee they can reduce my tax liability, waive all the interest and fees. I was desperate for help and so I paid them over $30,000 to take care of my tax issue. Hiring the tax relief company was the biggest mistake I made. The tax relief company DID NOT DO ANY WORK!! The penalties on my liabilities were just being added up and I was not staying current on my current payroll taxes. I did not know what to do. I called the tax relief company over and over again. They would not answer my calls and at one point their phones got disconnected. I got very frustrated and scared that the IRS would start to seize my assets and levy my bank account. I did not know what to do. I called my attorney and they reffered me to Strategic Tax Lawyers. I was told they have the best reputation in the industry and they are a leading tax law firm . My attorney explained that they were different than a tax relief company because the law firm is actually regulated by the state bar. I also learned that the owner of the LAW FIRM, used to be an attorney for the IRS and actually used to represent them. I decided to call them and they accepted me as a client immediately. They quickly contacted the IRS and protected all my assets. They went ahead and got the penalties reduced and provided me with strategies on ways to stay current. I cant thank the attorneys of Strategic Tax Lawyers enough!! They got me out of the hole when I thought there was no hope. The attorneys at Strategic Tax Lawyers have a great reputation in the tax industry, and there is a reason why they are who they are!! Thanks guys!!
