Our goal is to reach the most favorable result possible, at the lowest cost and in the fastest way.
We specialize in handling international tax controversies, whether an audit, appeal or matters related to collections. While most cases are resolved at exam or appeals, we are always prepared to take the case to court and litigate your rights.

IRS Payment Plan/Installment Agreement. A payment plan is an agreement with the IRS to pay the taxes you owe within an extended timeframe. You should request a payment plan if you believe you will be able to pay your taxes in full within the extended time frame. If you qualify for a short-term payment plan you will not be liable for a user fee. Not paying your taxes when they are due may cause the filing of a Notice of Federal Tax Lien and/or an IRS levy action.
