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!!

I would proudly recommend Mike Wallen and Highland Tax Group to anyone with IRS issues.  I am a failed business owner and the tax implications were much scarier and higher than I had planned on. When the time came to face the IRS, I went out and interviewed 3 tax attorneys/Enrolled Agents to represent me through this crisis.  I was the most confident with Mike, and Highland Tax Group, because of his professionalism, open communication, informative processes, and willingness to work with my specific needs as I requested.  In other words he didn’t demand a large up front sum to get started and then keep everything behind closed doors.  I hope I never need Mikes services again, but if I do I will be sure to call him. Thanks Mike!

I had a very large tax problem stemming from a business I owned.  I couldn’t pay the balance due and didn’t know what to do.  I began working with Mike at Highland Tax Group and he was able to successfully represent me before not only the State of Colorado taxing authorities but also the IRS.  The State of Colorado was garnishing my wages and I couldn’t afford to pay my bills.  After Mike went down to the State of Colorado in person, he was able to get my garnishment reduced to something I could afford! On the other end of things, my IRS problem was vast and growing but Mike assured me we could provide financial information and a proposal to successfully settle on my account. My financial status isn’t great and we decided an offer in compromise would be the best strategy.  We were able to settle for far less than what was owed and I was already able to pay it off! I can now get back to building my finances back up and providing a life for myself. Mike always provided comfort and a sense of security knowing he was handling the problem regardless of the stress involved. I would highly recommend Mike at Highland Tax Group to anyone with State or IRS tax issues. Thanks Mike!!

I contacted Mike Wallen from Highland Tax Resolution as a referral form a friend to help with our Federal IRS issues. We had tried to handle the issue ourselves and after countless hours on the phone, we had gotten nowhere, and they were threatening to seize funds from our bank account. We had state tax issues as well, but Mike felt that we could handle that without his help, and we did. Mike got us a temporary hold on the Federal taxes until we could get our paperwork in for a payment plan. He was flexible with his fee and helped us get everything turned in, even when we were dragging our feet. He was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We got on the payment plan and everything is on track. Like most people, I dislike dealing with the IRS, but when working with Mike, we didn’t have to. I would absolutely refer him to anyone dealing with back taxes or payment plans. I would also use him again if I have any further or more complicated issues. Hopefully I won’t!

I consider myself lucky to have found Highland Tax Group, Inc. Mike immediately took control of a situation where I felt helpless. I couldn’t be more happy about the end results!

Where do I start? Mike Wallen at Highland Tax Group, Inc. has been incredible. I found him online and was a little skeptical about using a company that was in Denver, Colorado, with us being located in California. However, since day one he has been straight with us about what issues we were facing and how to handle them. Mike didn’t make any broken promises and was always there when we needed him. He got us on an incredible payment plan and stopped all levies, liens, and all the burdensome issues that come along when you or your business owe tax debt. Trust me when I say this, we owed a lot! I have referred him several customers and will continue to do so.

Mike Wallen with Highland Tax Group helped me challenge amounts I owed for two tax years. I wasn’t sure if that was even an option before I spoke with Mike, and after several attempts to reach the IRS by phone myself (which is impossible, the number provided on the notices only sent me to a message with no option to talk to the IRS), I reached out to Highland Tax. Not only did the amounts I owed for two years get reduced after working with Mike due to sending in  proof of interest paid on my mortgage, but he obtained extensions on my behalf to get me more time to send the IRS the information as I was having a difficult time getting a hold of the mortgage company.He took care of the issue right before Thanksgiving to ensure the IRS deadline was not missed. Mike is very knowledgeable about tax issues and I appreciated his help greatly.

Mike was referred to me by my tax accountant as they had attended a continuing education class together. She was thoroughly impressed by his background and knowledge of tax matters. I have been happy with the service and the prompt responses every time I have had a question or concern. He took the time and made the trip to meet with my wife and I at a location of our choosing. He was very thorough with us regarding the details of what we needed to do to resolve a very complicated and potentially disastrous tax situation. He has helped us beyond measure. I highly recommend him.
