Testimonials

Highland Tax Group is a group of professionals who take the high road and know their business. They, like all Pros, know the ins and more importantly know the outs of your dilemmas. Entrepreneurs move into self-employment to separate ourselves from the rest in our profession. We do this because we know our jobs and our abilities, and have proven that by way of our service to our customers. However, sometimes we so caught up in our commitment to our customers with the quality of what we do, OUR JOBS, we fall short in our obligations, “to the business” thinking we can handle it all. We then push aside our obligations, and, THEN LIFE HAPPENS, and it’s difficult to get caught up afterward. In my circumstance, I fell short to tragedies… 3 floods, 1 fire, and losing my 28-year-old only son to an automobile accident. If not for Highland Tax Group and their expertise, asking the right questions and helping me to get the information organized in a way for them to help me, I would have surely lost everything to the IRS. Highland Tax Group, Inc. asked the right questions and hold you responsible and accountable for your own sake…. my father once told me if you’re in a position where you need a prizefighter, hire the best, and don’t tie their hands behind their backs, let them do their job. Mike Wallen with Highland Tax Group, Inc. was referred to me by my accountant, Troy Coon who for many years gained my trust and had my back, saw me in trouble, and couldn’t have given me better advice, than to talk with Mike.  I couldn’t have received better advice. It’s a process that will at times seem impossible… but have faith in Mike and Megan they are truly the pros that I will never again be without! I know we rate our engagement with people and business with stars, but there are not enough Stars I can give to the debt I owe these people. They truly care and will with your help (accountability), make the biggest difference in your dilemma.  In short, Mike and Megan helped me to be forgiven for 57,000 dollars of tax debt!

1. It didn’t start out that way, I truly only owed a fraction of that, but with interest and penalties and not knowing what to do….just like you…I needed to do something.
2. It became a mountain that I couldn’t climb.
3. Hire the professionals and put that mountain behind you!!! With their help, you can climb it!!
4. Thank you Mike..  and thank you, Megan, for helping me get my life back.
5.  A short note, what we like to think we have is “integrity”, it’s something we think we have but our follow through is the most overlooked part of integrity’s definition. This group of professionals has integrity in abundance.

Thank you again Highland Tax Group!

Is there any IRS matter too challenging for Highland Tax Group?”  One might ask.  I am here to answer that question with a resounding NO! My circumstances were unique:  after years of audits, added interest and payment plans for thousands of dollars, I made the decision to work with Mike Wallen and Megan Scott of Highland Tax Group in Denver.  I do not like financial reports, tax inquiries, and statements.  After a decade struggling with the IRS, I submitted all these issues to the expertise of Mike Wallen, Enrolled Agent, and my woes were handled in a professional, courteous and caring manner. I have already recommended Highland Tax Group and will continue to do so without hesitation.  I thank God for professional tax experts such as Mike and Megan at Highland.


I have been working with Mike Wallen at Highland Tax Group for the last couple of years. Although we haven’t gotten to a final settlement, working with Mike has greatly reduced the amount of stress for me in dealing with my particular situation. Resolving tax issues is not for the faint of heart and blissfully, Mike has shouldered that responsibility for me. Communication is prompt and clear and he always allows me the time to vent and get detailed explanations from him. I would highly recommend him and his staff to anyone dealing with tax issues – great people and a great value.


I want to share what Mike Wallen at Highland Tax Group did for me. When Mike Wallen took over the handling of my tax issues, I had been mired in major IRS difficulties for more than a decade as a result of bookkeeper failure to make my business tax payments. A competing tax resolution firm had been completely ineffective while trying to help me, despite charging an exorbitant fee. Mike took over, sorted through my voluminous records, and got immediately to work on my behalf. As a direct result of his expertise and industry, I recently made my last installment payment on an incredibly favorable resolution he reached for me with the IRS. For the first time in almost twenty years, my tax affairs are in order and I sleep soundly at night. His fee was quite reasonable, he communicated with me constantly, and all my questions were answered in a patient and understandable way; I felt like he was my tax champion. To anyone needing help with serious tax problems, don’t waste time or money looking elsewhere: Call MIKE WALLEN at HIGHLAND TAX GROUP without delay. You’ll sleep better immediately. Thanks, Mike


Highland Tax Group and Mike Wallen, not to mention his assistant, Megan Scott, deserve more stars than I could ever give them! Let’s face it ! … tax resolution is not an easy process! Mike and his staff have been a light at the end of a tunnel! Supportive! Patient! Kind and Efficient! Most importantly, Priceless! I would be leaving this review even if I hadn’t gotten a stellar settlement ….which I did with Highland Tax on my side! They are hands down the best tax resolution resource in Denver! I am thrilled to be on the other side of this process and I couldn’t have done it without Mike Wallen! I recommend Highland Tax Group to anyone searching for tax relief and a new beginning!


I cannot convey how valuable The Highland Tax Group was in helping me resolve an IRS tax issue that began several years ago. Mike Wallen and his team began working on my case and immediately I felt a sense of relief. They represented my interest through several years of negotiations with the IRS and ultimately obtained a settlement for me that was more than favorable. Mike never wavered in staying in contact with me throughout the process. They assisted in gathering all the documents that were requested and compiled the information in a professional manner. When the time came for the negotiations, they pressed my case and came away with a settlement that was totally beyond my expectations. I highly recommend the Highland Tax Group.


I had quite a few issues with the IRS and other taxing authorities before I decided to hire Highland Tax Group, Inc. I was recommended to Mike and Highland Tax Group by another business partner. Once I hired HTG I felt confident in Mike’s ability to assist with the problem. Mike met me and my father for lunch and we hired him on the spot. He has always been communicative and easy to deal with. Whenever I have a question regarding the debt, notices, or the agencies themselves, Mike is there ready to answer my questions without fail. My business has never been in a better position and I have to thank the work HTG did to get me where I am today. I’ve decided to keep Mike and HTG on as Power of Attorney. Mike is able to let me know when there are any issues that might come up concerning the taxing authorities. Thank you HTG for all you have done for my business to date and your continued help as time goes on!


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!
