Mike Wallen literally changed my life. About seven years ago, I made the “WONDERFUL” decision to follow some advice from a “friend”, and start claiming extra dependents on my taxes. To make a long story short, that decision led to more poor decisions, uncertainty and fear. I stopped filing taxes altogether. Before you know it, the IRS was beating down my door. Seven years of unfiled taxes. Seven years of dodging phone calls. Seven years of wondering when my wages would be garnished, when my assets would be seized, when the possibility of jail time would arise. I knew that I had to get it taken care of, but the fear of the unknown, lack of understanding, and legal consequences pushed me farther and farther from a solution. I was scared! My moral roots were being challenged on a daily basis, as I was living a lie. THEN INSERT MIKE WALLEN with Highland Tax Group!! WIthin minutes of meeting him, sweet relief and hope began to wash over me. By the end of the first consultation, I had a firm understanding of my situation, and the steps needed to attain resolution for both the Federal and State filings. Over the course of the next month, Mike was in constant contact with me, keeping me abreast of exactly what our schedule entailed, and what he was doing to mitigate my mistakes. All of that fear and worry went out the window. All of those dreaded phone calls and letters stopped. I had, on my side, a person who deals with the IRS on a daily basis, has a wealth of knowledge and experience at his fingertips, and knows how to get things done. Not once, did I have to contact ANYONE other than Mike Wallen, while the entire process was worked through. A month later, he had worked his incredible magic, and I was on a payment plan with both entities. Mike went to bat for me, figured out exactly what I was comfortable paying monthly, and started my plan accordingly. Dealing with my IRS and State problem was so much easier than I could have ever imagined. He’s followed up with me on numerous occasions to make sure that everything is aligning properly, and not ONCE have I personally heard from either the State or Federal government with anything except payment vouchers. The piece of mind, time, and overall homeostasis that Mike has brought back to my life is invaluable, and I will forever be grateful for the service that he provides. If you’ve been waiting to do something, don’t spend another minute of your life in fear of what could happen. Call Mike with Highland Tax Group, Inc. They will go to bat for you!!
