Frequently Asked Questions
What type of representation does your firm provide?
-Our firm will represent clients in the areas of general Federal & State tax compliance, Appeals, Audits, Business Compliance, Foreign & Offshore Reporting, Injured & Innocent Spouse representation, Installment Agreements, Levy Defense, Liens, Offer in Compromises, Penalty Abatements, Trust Funds, and US Tax Court filings.
Will the retainer cover the entire cost?
-Since we bill at an hourly rate, the retainer will only cover the first few hours of the work we'll provide. We do not bill at flat rates due to each case being different in nature and complexity. Your monthly invoices will show you what work is provided every month and give you a due date for your balance with our firm.
How much is your representation going to cost?
-Total cost is dependent on client cooperation, validity of client records, the government's response time, and the overall complexity of the case. Because of these varying factors, we cannot predict exact cost. We can, however, tell you that our firm will always work diligently to be cost effective for our clients. If you become concerned with the cost, contact our billing department and they will work with you to handle your account.
What if I can't afford to pay the retainer in full?
-If you cannot afford to pay the retainer in full, we will require financial documentation to provide our billing department so that they can approve you for a payment plan. Once approved, the retainer must be paid within the first three (3) months of engagement with our firm. Contact our billing department for additional information.
What if I can't afford to pay my monthly invoice in full?
-If you cannot afford to pay your monthly invoices in full, our firm offers a monthly automatic payment plan to our clients. Our firm provides this courtesy and convenience to clients as an affordable way to pay for services. Contact our billing department for additional information.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
-Since the government can take unlimited time, based on their workload and complexity of their cases, to respond to our correspondences, it's very difficult to give an accurate timeframe for resolution. We can promise though, that when we hear from the government, we'll let you know immediately. You'll be kept up to date on all critical correspondences and deadlines with the government.
