Testimonials

My IRS problem was 10 years old when I decided to find a competent Tax Consultant. After interviewing 3 different firms it was clear that Mike Wallen at Highland Tax Group, Inc. was our choice moving forward.

In addition to the normal IRS challenges our initial offer was rejected, which complicated matters. Mr. Wallen was successful in his communications with our IRS agent and filing of an appeal. The appeal allowed for a settlement, a settlement that was substantially less than our initial offer, and our tax due. 

We would highly recommend Mike should you need a experienced tax resolution professional.


It’s hard to say anything related to taxes is an enjoyable experience, but this might qualify. I was referred to Mike Wallen and Highland Tax Group, Inc., as I was dealing with a complex tax situation with my parents. Mike was thorough and diligent in filing an offer in compromise and followed through with an appeal. My parents are both in their 80’s and have had medical issues so this is not a path they could have managed themselves. All situations and outcomes are different, but the IRS eventually accepted the offer (after the appeal) and it could have not turned out any better. Highly recommend Highland Tax Group, Inc.


Mike and Ron with Highland Tax Group, Inc. were great to work with, and took a very professional and aggressive approach to solving my tax issue with the IRS.  Their knowledge and advice was second to none.  They took an active interest and role in getting the situation resolved in a timely manner and positive outcome.  We worked with another firm in the past that is very “active” in advertising on local radio about their services and promoting their past success stories.  We felt as if they we were just another case file with them.  At Highland Tax Group, Inc. they made us feel as if they truly cared about our personal situation and did everything they could to help us.  I would definitely recommend Highland Tax Group, Inc. to anyone that is dealing with a tax situation with the IRS.


I would highly recommend the Highland Tax Group to anyone in need of consult on issues related to the IRS.

I recently enlisted their services to help with a back tax issue and they had it resolved within 30 days. They are professional at every level.

Mike Wallen was a huge help for me. I was searching for some tax advice and Mike not only responded quickly but also took the time to review my situation for free. In the end, I was able to handle it on my own but Mike’s help and advice were extremely helpful. I would recommend him and Highland Tax Group to anyone of my friends or family.


I was referred to Mike Wallen with Highland Tax Group through my tax advisor, who assured me that Mike would be the solution to my compounding tax problem. IRS problems can be very daunting and I was literally losing sleep over the constant worry of how I was going to deal with this nightmare. I was on a payment plan with the IRS trying to pay off back taxes, which seemed like a never ending battle because of penalties and interest accruing on the account.  To make matters worse, I lost my job in 2012, so my 401K loan defaulted. When I filed my taxes for 2012, I was penalized heavily for my defaulted 401K loan and the unpaid loan amount was considered ordinary income, pushing me into a higher tax bracket, so the amount of taxes I ended up owing for 2012 was astronomical. After I lost my job, I returned to school to reinvent myself, so I was making very little money and was faced with a tax bill I knew I could not pay back anytime soon. With much trepidation, because of shame and embarrassment, I finally contacted HTG to schedule my initial consultation. My first meeting with Mike Wallen and his associate, Kim Wallen, gave me some sense of hope and I felt a little more at ease because I knew my problem was something that HTG could handle. Mike and Kim were respectful, polite, professional and very knowledgeable, and I knew I was in good hands. After some work on my part gathering documentation and filling out the necessary paperwork, HTG worked their magic, and within less than a year, I received my offer from the IRS, one that I could definitely rest easy with. I would highly recommend Mike of Highland Tax Group to anyone that is in need of such services. All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing some sense of peace back to my life.


Mike Wallen of the the Highland Tax Group, Inc. is a top notch professional.

Not only did Mr. Wallen mitigate thousands from my tax bill, he was amazing with follow up, follow through, and genuine care and concern throughout our time together. I share his name with any and all of my friends and clients who may need his help and am so thankful for his accomplishments and work with me. Thank you Mike Wallen!


Poor tax reporting landed me in an IRS audit.  I was introduced to Mike Wallen and the Highland Tax Group through my CPA hired to help me through the recovery.  I was impressed by Mike Wallen from our initial meeting.  He was honest and direct about the services his firm could provide together with his fees and what he expected from his clients.  He has never wavered.   To date, Mike Wallen has been successful assisting me with the IRS and counseling me through this challenge.  If you are experiencing difficulty with the IRS or the State, I strongly suggest you contact the Highland Tax Group. His professionalism and personal attention to his clients joined with keeping to his word on every level is not only refreshing is it reassuring.
