Thoughtful, caring & effective!

“This page is almost like a love parade for this company, but I have to throw in my two cents and agree with everyone here because they did an AMAZING job for me and my family. I read something about the IRS being more lenient the last couple of years but it sure didn’t seem that way, they kept sending me notices to my employer and finally they levied my paycheck and took over 80%. Obviously this was crazy, no one can live on that, and so I started calling a bunch of companies looking for help. This was the fourth company I called that I felt knew what they were talking about and not just trying to quick-sell me something. I trusted them right off the bat, did my due diligence and found that they are a great reviewed company, and hired them. From Anne and VINCENT, the experience and results were life-changing. We got all our tax returns filed and even got a nice chunk of a refund applied to the tax debt (went from 23k to about 7k). Now we’re on a payment plan for $175/mo, and I don’t have to stress out all the time about this. So thanks guys, you made my holidays that much brighter this year!”

One of the best companies I have EVER worked with!

“It’s a shame we can’t give more stars, because wow am I one happy camper. Taxes and me are like water and oil, we don’t mix well at all, my mind doesn’t like to keep track of all the letters and notices we get from the IRS or how to make sense of them.
We got a large demand for over fifty thousand dollars, which is about what we owe on our home, and my husband and I went into full panic mode and started looking everywhere for someone to help us. My sister’s preparer referred us to StopIRSDebt.com – he had worked with them before many times – and for the price said we wouldn’t get better results or better treatment. You go into any business agreement with one eye open and one eye closed so to speak, I’m not the most trusting person, but we did the research and found a great bill of health on this company so we called and went with them. They really are as everyone here describes – they are on TOP of it. So organized, so communicative, so friendly and professional, and they did everything they said they would do and more. At the end of the day we got our debt into a modest payment plan and I think the total we owe now is about 18k. They will do our tax returns every year and make sure this doesn’t happen again. Angela is a dream, and so are Mary and Vincent. So that’s my review, hope it helps….”

Impressive knowledge of tax law

“Thorough handling of my account, very professional, very courteous, and very reliable. I am a paralegal, and although I am around law all day, tax law is something completely different, and stopirsdebt.com was very highly recommended by my sister’s friend (she owed roughly $50,000). From the first consultation they were up to speed on my options and very understanding of what was feasible. I think the standout thing they did – apart from releasing a small bank levy and reducing my tax debt substantially – was the professional excellence each and every time we were in contact. Updates were provided weekly, I never had to call and ask for something, and they were just completely on top of the ball. I am referring them to the managing partner here for any clients we get with tax issues, they were that good. I will ask them to handle my returns each year as well. Quite a find, considering how many companies are out there claiming to be tax relief specialists.”

Amazing Amazing Amazing!

“My name is Janis, I have never posted a review like this, but I am very impressed with this company because they helped my family so much it is without words. For years we have never understood taxes, they are a different language to me, and I have never done what I needed to do to make sure everything was taken care of. One year I would have my friend do it, another I would have H & R do them, but I always felt completely out of touch with what was going on with my taxes. So after about ten years of this, I guess it finally caught up and we were audited. We lost most of the audit, and the result was a tax debt of more than $75000. Obviously we couldn’t pay, but the auditor didn’t seem to care and made us agree to a payment plan of $1500/month. This was crazy, we couldn’t pay our mortgage, we couldn’t afford our kids education, and we ended up not paying the payments. Not a good idea, but we had no choice, we asked for the plan to be altered but he said we could afford to pay it and wouldn’t. So because we didn’t make payments they levied our bank and took most of what we had out. This is the IRS btw, thought that was obvious. So there went ten more thousand, which was everything to us. We didn’t know what to do, and all of a sudden we were ‘those people’ who owed the government. Out of a whim I saw the spinning stop sign on tv for stopirsdebt.com and called them with my husband, we spoke to anne for over an hour the first time, more the second time, and agreed to hire them. Honestly, we were hoping to just get something fair with the IRS and the agent, but I’m telling you, they must have magic sauce over there because what happened was amazing. First, the asked for an ‘audit reconsideration’ – never heard of this, no one has lol – and the audit was reopened for examination. They went back and forth with my tax returns and the new auditor, and the craziest thing happened. The audit was wrong!!! Can you believe it, the IRS made a mistake, go figure. But it was the smallest mistake and because of it it invalidated the entire audit, and stopirsdebt.com found this one small mistake. The debt didn’t go away completely, we still owed about 20k, but they got us on a small payment plan of $175/mo for the balance, which will end before we pay it in full. All told, we went from having nothing – oh, they even got the ten thousand from our bank account back! forgot to mention that! – and owing 75k to only owing about 12k after everything will be said and done. The results were amazing, but the service was so professional, they are so on top of it, they called me and calmed me, I never had to ask them for anything, they are so organized and care so much, all I can say is that if you have a problem like this you owe it to yourself to call this company. Remarkable, terrific, life-changing….”

You should hire them if you owe the IRS!

“I was very skeptical about hiring anyone to resolve my tax debt, but this company was referred to me by my accountant who has handled all of my family’s tax returns for the last ten years or so, and it was an excellent referral. Since my accountant doesn’t do collection work, he found this company after seeing a bunch of their TV ads and called them to pick their brains. Anyways, they did a great job for his clients and have done a very solid job with me, hence the review. $150,000+ in business payroll tax, massive headache from the revenue officer, threats, calls, name it, he wanted to collect and wasn’t pulling any punches. We hired StopIRSDebt.com about 3 months ago, and here’s what happened: 1. revenue officer is happy and cool, no more calls. 2. tax debt negotiated to $49k. 3. payment plan negotiated for 60 months. 4. all returns ammended and filed. Summary – will have saved over $115k after all is said and done. Will hire them if I ever need something like this again, and if you’re considering anyone, consider them. It was a team approach, very knowledgable, very good at returning calls and emails, no complaints whatsoever. Wish it was free, but we saved so much the fee was small in comparison. Thanks again!”

Would hire them again

“I am very happy that we were able to have such a positive and loving experience with such an amazing group of people. Taxes scare the living daylights out of me, and my wife and I made a mistake about 4 years ago when we filed and we got a bill for over $40,000 last march. We freaked out! My wife had lost her job, and my company was barely hanging on, so we didn’t pay the IRS anything and they started sending more notices until they finally levied my account and took over 4k (rent money!). We saw the ad for stopirsdebt.com and called them – actually we called a few places, including tax masters, but the person I spoke to there had a very basic understanding of taxation, you could tell he was just a salesguy – but stopirsdebt KNEW what they were talking about. We discussed our case at length before hiring them for about 2 hours, and I just knew they were the real deal. For us, we had a big mess they had to undo – they had to redo our previous three tax returns, stop the IRS from taking anything else, and then try and set something up for the balance. Once the returns were filed, I was shocked. They nailed them! It reduced the balance to about 12k, and then from there we were put on a payment plan for the balance which will expire before we have to pay everything in full. All told, we will have paid about 7-8k on the bill. Rock and roll! Anne Chen is amazing, Nicole Pokusay is incredible, and Brian H (don’t know how to spell is last name lol) is unreal. Hire them if you have a problem like this, thumbs way up!”
