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.
Highland Tax Group helped my wife and I get through our tax problems that have plagued us for the last three years from both state and federal IRS issues. Highland took us from a situation of desperation and not knowing what was going to happen to us, to a situation of having control of the outcome and working with the IRS. We no longer fear our wages and bank accounts being garnished or our belongings being taken to satisfy the tax burden. Highland Tax Group was able to have some penalties removed from our tax burden through negotiation. This amount saved added up to more than Highland’s service fees so we came out with a positive outcome personally and economically. I would highly recommend Highland Tax Group to help with any tax concerns that you might have. Thanks Highland!
Highland Tax Group, Inc. gave me the peace of mind I needed. Effectively, Mike provided me with an umbrella to hold over my head so I could deal with my IRS difficulties. Mike has kept me apprised at each step of the process, and he has given me the confidence that I need to weather the storm. My IRS problem would be a huge burden on my life without Mike available to coach me through the process! He has allowed me to live my life without disruption.
I had a minor tax delinquency from a few years ago that was brought to my attention in 2013. Mike handled this case efficiently and was able to get my late penalties waived while providing me with several options for repayment to the IRS that fit my budget. Most important of all, I was able to focus on my daily profession without this distraction — knowing that the case was being handled in a professional matter on my own behalf.
Mr. Wallen has been nothing but professional, kind, and empathetic concerning my situation. When I came to Mr. Wallen he was able to assist me with a problem that was too overwhelming for even my attorney to handle. However, as an Enrolled Agent, Mr. Wallen of Highland Tax Group, Inc. specializes in handling IRS liability. That is exactly what he did. He took $100,000 tax liability and narrowed it down to something affordable for me. He kept my wife out of the situation as she was not responsible for the tax I accrued. More importantly he was able to get my life back on track. He negotiated and represented me before the IRS until my balance due was zero. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone going through the stress of owing the IRS.
We chose Mike Wallen over 3 different tax resolution companies. We were able to hear directly from 2 of his past clients, who shared their unsolicited, successful experience with Mike and his associates. My experience too has been a positive one. Mike has demonstrated to be prompt, thorough, and professional. If you have tax issues, Mike is well prepared to help.
Mike Wallen has had such a profound impact on my financial life. Mike was able to find an accountant in my area to help me file back taxes. He was also able to work with the IRS to set up a payment plan that worked with my monthly budget and have the lien removed from my credit report. Having Mike in my corner, listening and understanding the stress I have dealt with over the years without judgment, was the best part of this journey. If you have been putting this part of your life on hold, living in denial or frustrated because you have tried other Tax Companies and they didn’t help, I understand. Been there, done that. But if you are ready to make a change in your financial life and finally get rid of the burden of back taxes, call Mike. He will understand and he will help.
I found Mike Wallen through one of his existing clients. His client spoke highly of him and I was excited to get started on repairing the financial ruin that had set in due to the tax liability I was facing. Mike was professional and courteous and always responded to my needs. When I had a question he was more than willing to advise me on the next steps I needed to take. Before I hired Mike with Highland Tax Group the IRS wanted a payment plan of over $500 monthly. After reviewing my financial situation Mike worked hard with me and the IRS to get me the lowest monthly payment plan available! I am currently paying $52 monthly. We are now considering filing for an offer in compromise. However, before we do Mike has advised me on how to improve my financial livelihood and still fall within the allowable financial categories the IRS sets forth. I will continue on my payment plan until my situation improves and I am confident Mike will steer me in the right direction.
