Financial Freedom Starts Here

Unmanageable debt puts dangerous stress on you and your relationships. Bankruptcy may be a solution, and we can help you figure that out. 

Bankruptcy is a tool created by Congress to aid the national economy. Congress learned from expert testimony that if individuals and businesses had no “exit strategy” for unmanageable debt, they would cease to undertake the sort of financial commitments that the economy depends upon for its growth.

Is debt from healthcare, taxes, business investments, family emergencies, or other sources stopping you from leading a financially productive life? Perhaps bankruptcy is the tool you need. Call for your free bankruptcy consultation today and learn if bankruptcy is right for you.

  • Filing too late, so you don’t get the full benefit of the automatic stay
  • Invalid liens on secured property that were not properly challenged
  • Reaffirmation of uneconomic, undesired debt
  • Unnecessary loss of property
  • Expensive, hidden charges

tax resolution:

Why You Can't Ignore the Tax Collector

We get it. This situation is terrifying, meaning you might feel panicked and unsure what to do next. But there’s some good news for you on this front — whether you need business tax resolution help, federal wage garnishment help, or an unfiled tax returns resolution, you’ve come to the right place. We’re the experts on getting you out of hot water with the taxman. We’re not called the Tax Trouble Wizards for nothing, you know. Afraid because you haven’t filed tax returns for years? Special rules may help you — and we know what those rules are and how to call on them. Underreported your income? It’s not too late to avoid jail, especially when you’ve got us going to bat for you and protecting your interests. Did your spouse incur tax responsibilities you didn’t know about? Forgiveness is possible thanks to our knowledge and experience in helping countless others in similar situations to yours. We’re the tax lien experts for a reason — we’ve got the skills, knowledge, and expertise of an experienced tax resolution law firm to get you out of hot water. If, for example, you’re suffering under a tax lien in the US that’s preventing a home sale, refinance, purchase, or other transaction that you’re counting on because you owe more than you can imagine ever being able to pay, there are ways out from under this massive burden. Put us to work, and we’ll negotiate a way out on your behalf that restores your financial independence once again, freeing you from the grasp of the government’s tax collectors.

The federal tax system seems to get increasingly complicated every year. It’s not just your perception, either — the law changes constantly, and it takes someone with their finger on the pulse of tax law to understand these changes and how they might affect your lifestyle. You need specialized knowledge and experience to understand these convoluted tax schemes. Even then, it’s too easy to make honest mistakes because of how dense and maze-like federal tax law has become over the years. As a result, it’s too easy to file a straightforward document like a personal income tax return incorrectly, to say nothing of the absolute labyrinth involved in filing business taxes. Meanwhile, once you have made a mistake, getting it sorted out can feel like it’s next to impossible. The IRS wants their pound of flesh, and Uncle Sam makes it sound like they’re not going to let you off the hook for anything less than every penny. In many cases, this can be the truth, even though there are ways around this (ways the government won’t tell you about). You could end up paying a tax lien for decades if you don’t take some action to clear it. In the meantime, you’ll be stuck if you’ve got an important large-scale transaction pending, such as purchasing a new home or car. Living in fear of the taxman coming to collect is a miserable existence. But you don’t have to be trapped in a financial hell due to a mistake — not when you’ve got us in your corner. We know how challenging it can be to manage your tax responsibilities appropriately and how difficult it is to get yourself out of trouble unaided. That’s why we do what we do; we must use our deep knowledge of tax law and our years of experience to help others escape the clutches of wage garnishment, unfiled taxes, and unpaid payroll tax problems. We’re here for you when no one else is.

If you need business tax relief help after running afoul of the Internal Revenue Service or EDD, you’ve come to the right place. We’re one business tax resolution law firm with the chops to get Uncle Sam or EDD off your back and get your business back on the road to being a source of income for you. Not only will we get the job done, but we’ll also get it done quickly — without costing you an arm and a leg in the process. That’s a personal promise we’ve made to our clients, time and again, over the years — and it’s a promise we pride ourselves on delivering on every time someone turns to us for help. You don’t have to take our word for it; let our actions speak louder than words. Just one meeting with a business tax relief lawyer in our offices, and you’ll see precisely what strategies we can use to ensure your tax liabilities are solved to the satisfaction of the IRS. We’ll get your circumstances sorted out in a hurry and to your satisfaction, making it easy for you to return to running a profitable business without the government breathing down your neck. In some cases, we can have you back in action and only pay pennies on the dollar on your existing business tax responsibilities. That’s the kind of success you can take to the bank.

Tax lien removal is no problem when you’ve got us on your side. If you’re suffering from a decreased income that’s making living expenses unbearable or an important transaction impossible, you need a federal wage garnishment release and are in a hurry. Call on us to go to bat for you, and you’ll see just how quickly we can get those garnishments lifted, paving the way forward for you to return to financial independence and freedom. There’s a reason we’re known as the best at providing you federal wage garnishment help when you need it, wherever you need it. We’ve got a hard-earned reputation for getting results, releasing you from those feelings of powerlessness and anger as the government takes from you what you worked so hard to earn. Don’t turn to anyone who promises they have what it takes to get those garnished wages returned to you — go with us, and you’ll see why we’re the best.

Looking for help with tax lien removal or back taxes resolution? The Tax Trouble Wizard is here to assist you. Here’s how we can help. Do you have tax liability you can’t pay? Is a tax lien preventing you from making a transaction you desperately need? Don’t owe tax, but the government says you do? Haven’t filed for years, and you’re looking for a way out? Don’t panic. There’s help just around the corner for you. Whether you’re looking for business tax relief help, a federal wage garnishment release, or an unpaid federal tax resolution, your peace of mind is right around the corner. The Tax Trouble Wizards are here for you, and we’re ready to work our magic and get you out of hot water with the IRS.

Things happen. No matter what the reason for it might be, sometimes we can go several years between filing taxes — and the longer it’s been, the more serious the circumstances can get regarding squaring up with Uncle Sam. We know how terrifying this prospect can be, and that’s why you can rely on us when you need an unfiled tax return resolution to make this nightmare a thing of the past. With our help, you’ll be able to sleep well at night. We’ll work with you every step to get you back on track. We’re experts at advocating for your rights and negotiating with the IRS that you can afford to get back in the government’s good graces. We’re known as the federal tax resolution experts for a good reason — we’ll get your past squared away so that you can look forward to a positive future, one free from worry that your past mistakes will come back to haunt you even further than they have already.

When you owe the government money, you live your life entirely in their crosshairs. That problem follows you everywhere and intrudes on every aspect of your life, from wage garnishments preventing you from having enough money to pay your bills and tax levies stopping you from completing crucial sales and purchases of real estate and other related things. Business tax liabilities are even worse. As unpaid taxes on your business can end up hamstringing your ability to make a living, all too often, unpaid business taxes can destroy your company for good, leaving you with massive liability to deal with — and without a livelihood to boot. This is why it’s so important to seek help in a situation like one of the examples above. Owing back taxes can be an isolating experience, one that can grind you down and leave you both hopeless and helpless, unable to reach out and having no recourse but to suffer under the heel of the tax burden you owe to the government. It doesn’t have to be this way, though. Don’t suffer in silence when you don’t have to — turn to the experts to get the help you need. Whether you’re looking for a tax lien removal, a back taxes resolution, or business tax relief help, we’re ready and willing to work on your behalf. Let us work to clear your tax liabilities and get you back on the road to financial recovery and rehabilitation. Contact us today, and we’ll show you why we’re known as the federal tax resolution experts.
