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.
