Testimonials

My wife and I were very upset and didn’t know where to turn when the IRS was forcing us to pay a tax liability of $15,000. Subsequently, the IRS filed a lien on our house.We were refereed to Mike Wallen and he reassured us and gave us hope that this lien would be resolved. Mike set the expectation from the onset that removing the IRS lien would take hard work and effort. However, we were ready to get the issue taken care of! Mike and HTG set us up on a payment plan in order to have the lien removed. We were relieved and happy the IRS lien and tax issue was taken care of without a lot of headaches and sleepless nights. My wife and I would definitely use Mike Wallen and HTG again for tax resolution!

Thank you so much for getting my parents IRS bill resolved. You worked for months with my uncle, Richard, to reach a settlement for them. My mother recently passed and having this tax issue finally resolved is a huge worry off his mind. Thank you so very much. Kelly.


I have been working with Highland Tax Group for the last 8 months trying to solve some problems with the IRS. They have been very good at keeping me informed on the process and in explaining what will likely happen next. I am so glad I found them and they get my highest recommendation.


My name is Martin. I currently own a roofing company and operate out of Greeley, Colorado. I am writing this testimonial for Mike Wallen with Highland Tax Group. I met with Mike last year to assist me with my tax issues. I had a $70,000 tax liability stemming from an identity theft issue. In other words, I filed my return, received a refund, and then received an IRS bill for $70,000 because someone else had stolen my identity. Mike was able to mitigate the entirety of the tax bill as well as the penalty and interest. Mike was nothing but helpful, friendly, and professional. He explained the process in simple terms for me. I was very content with his services. Please take into consideration my honest and humble opinion if looking to hire Mike to assist you with your tax issue.


Mike Wallen is fantastic. I had what many would call a minor tax issue. I had made an error using TurboTax’s Q&A filing and as a result the IRS was seeing data differently than what really occurred and was attempting to assess me as if I had more taxable income than I really did along with a penalty. As an accountant myself I likely could have handled it on my own and Mike even encouraged me to do so. That goes to Mike’s honesty and integrity in how he does conducts business. In addition, Mike and Highland Tax Group have developed a working relationship with the IRS, something the average taxpayer doesn’t have. Since the dollar impact to me would’ve been relatively large it was well worth it to let Mike and Highland Tax Group engage and solve my problems. In addition to the quality of the work Mike did for me it was also extremely timely. Other firms wanted to make appointments and have meetings which as you know all adds up to dollars for them. Mike and I worked everything by phone and email. I highly recommend Mike and his firm Highland Tax Group.


Mike Wallen was instrumental in helping me set up a payment agreement with the IRS when I didn’t know how to deal with them. He has been conscientious, concerned, and compassionate when I was forced out of my home by the 2013 flood, and overwhelmed by all paperwork. I not only got the IRS taken care of at a reasonable rate, I believe I found a GOOD PERSON in in the world. And that is becoming a rare find.


Mike stood by my wife and I over the last couple of years and helped us at every step to resolve a long standing tax issue from a business that had closed some ten years ago. We highly recommend him for any and all tax problems anyone has. Thanks again to Mike and his staff.


Nobody wants an issue with the IRS but when you have one, there is a solution with Mike Wallen. Our small business situation was grave to us but Mike brought a calm solution to the table and we were in excellent hands. Mike represented us to the IRS and the stress of what was something horrible became manageable and ultimately resolved, thanks to Mike Wallen.


We hired Highland Tax Group, Inc. after discovering a $70,000 lien on my wife’s house due to her ex-husband’s failure to pay their joint tax debt in 2005. At first we were apprehensive about hiring a tax resolution company. You hear about tax resolution companies and their ability to help you, however, they take your money without obtaining concrete results. We tried working with the IRS on our own and were not able to obtain clear cut information concerning the debt. In addition to the tax liability we were dealing with other issues including the loss of close family members. To say dealing with our tax liability has been a roller coaster would be an understatement.

Our situation changed when we hired HTG. HTG took the pressure off of us by dealing with the IRS directly. HTG also kept us in the loop about what was going on. Mike was great about constantly keeping in touch with us throughout the entire process. He reassured us he would find a reasonable solution to our tax problem to not only resolve the issue, but do so keeping our short term and long term financial goals in mind.

At the time we hired HTG, we owed the IRS over $70,000. Mike was able to settle our account with the IRS for $2,600.00. This allowed us to sell a piece of property that previously, with the lien against it, we were unable to sell or even re-finance. We not only sold the home but were able to pocket close to $50,000 from the sale after the IRS lien was released. We never would have been able to do this without Mike’s help.

We want to let others understand the predicament we were in and how grateful we are to Mike and HTG for helping us through this process.


Mike Wallen saved us thousands of dollars in back taxes and saved us the stress of negotiating with the IRS. We appreciate the work he has done for us at a reasonable cost. We would highly recommend his tax service to anyone who has IRS problems!
