Testimonials

I have known Mike Wallen for over 10 years. He represented me when I owned a construction company, and continued to represent me when I was forced to file for bankruptcy in 2009. Mike acted as my agent started in 2013 with Highland Tax Group, Inc. until the Offer In Compromise was accepted in 2014. It was an arduous and protracted process, but Highland Tax Group, Inc. never wavered in their conviction. Ultimately, the IRS held two years of my tax returns as per IRS rules and regulations, I had to pay $445 to clear a 2001 debt, and finally a total of $500 to settle my IRS debt via offer in compromise. This was the total amount I paid to reconcile a business and personal tax debt totaling over $125,000! Highland Tax Group, Inc. was with me through every step of this process, including notifying me of how IRS notices work, returning IRS phone calls, and intervening on my behalf with the IRS at all times. I would highly recommend Highland Tax Group, Inc. to anyone who has tax issues. Don’t face the IRS on your own! Let Mike Wallen and his staff at Highland Tax Group, Inc. handle your tax problem for you!

What can I say but thank you to Mike Wallen and his talented group of tax specialists. I spent many sleepless nights having anxiety and worrying about the IRS. I was introduced to his company by my accountant and all I could do is count my lucky stars for the outcome. As a small business owner (which I am sure many small business owners deal with) have the stress of running a successful company; having other equations come in with the daily stress is something that can be difficult to deal with. Thank you very much Mr. Wallen and I with ALL respect I hope I never speak to you again!! :-)


Working with Highland Tax Group, Inc. has provided me with a peace of mind I did have prior. The work completed was always done with the highest level of professionalism. Unfortunately, I didn’t save any money off of my tax bill, but I didn’t expect to. Mike Wallen, the owner of Highland Tax Group, Inc. gave me all the in’s and out’s of the tax issue, what my options were, and has stuck with me throughout the process. He even was able to advise me as to when my payment plan needed a new direct debit form, and helped me make sure all the necessary forms were signed, dated, and sent off to the IRS. Something I could have never done on my own. Thank you Mike for your professionalism, peace of mind, and helping me keep up and stay on top of my tax issue. I would recommend Highland Tax Group, Inc. to any individual dealing with an IRS issue.


I don’t love the idea about writing a review about something as personal as taxes, but Mike and crew did such a good job helping me out with the government that I wanted to do anything I could do to help them out. First of all they made something that was keeping me up at night and causing me huge amounts of stress and made me feel comfortable. They were very clear about the process, set expectations in plain english and stayed in constant communication with me throughout the entire process. In the end (which is kinda what really matters) they secured a compromise that was better than what I expected going into the process and helped me out with future plans to make sure I don’t end up in the same situation again. Highly recommended!


I have to say that I have nothing but respect for Mike and his team. They are all very honest and respectful people. For nine years of my life I was having trouble with a tax debt and due to this I was unable to move forward with my life and do things such as go to Graduate School. Mike educated me and walked me through the entire offer and compromise process and got my debt down to a reasonable amount that I could pay. I am very pleased to announce that today I no long have and tax debt and I am now in the process of looking for schools to attend. It is an absolutely life altering experience.


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.
