Early in 2019, I received a notice that our 2017 tax return was not correct and was being selected for an exam. The IRS proposed an assessment of $8,000 in tax and $2,000 in penalty. Knowing the IRS was wrong I challenged the IRS but got nowhere on my own. So I decided we needed representation and found Highland Tax Group, Inc. After nearly 7 months of back and forth, Mike J. Wallen, EA with Highland Tax Group, Inc. reached a settlement of zero dollars owed. Bottom line, hire a professional if you want to get the attention of the IRS, and moreover, get your case resolved.
