Personal Solution

Since each case is unique, we craft a personalized debt solution for every client. Additionally, we offer reasonable, affordable fees.

Integrity & Commitment

Most clients come to us seeking an “Offer in Compromise,” which is a drastic reduction or complete elimination of the tax liability. Many of our clients qualify for this debt forgiveness strategy; but for those that do not, it’s not the ONLY option. Tax Relief Pros are known for its creativity in reaching agreements on behalf of our clients with the IRS and/or state agencies.

 

Knowing You

Prior to representation, we do an extensive client consultation. This is not only done to gain a basic understanding of the government debt forgiveness program for which the client may be eligible available (green word here needs to be deleted) but also to discern useful information that potential clients do not realize may be useful in successfully defending their cause before the IRS and/or state agencies.
