“I just want to say Alex, Katheryn, and everybody have been nothing but fabulous. I've had many lawyers trying to help me with my back taxes to no avail. Alex and everyone at The Tax Defenders has been absolutely wonderful and most helpful. These guys know what they're doing. They're very smart cookies. Thank you very much.”
John Leach, Winthrop Harbor, Illinois
The path to resolution can sometimes take an unexpected turn. John Leach thought he hired The Tax Defenders to submit an Offer in Compromise. However, a totally different and more beneficial strategy resulted in massive tax savings.
“With great pleasure, I want to personally thank people like Dave and Luis, for their outstanding efforts in the way they handled my offer in compromise with the IRS. I paid 1% of the fee the IRS wanted me to pay, that’s quite some savings. And they made considerable efforts to change their schedule to talk to me, as there is a 2 hour time difference between our geographical locations. Again, my personal thank you to the team at The Tax Defenders in Chicago, Illinois. Thank you very much!”
Dennis Chegren, Irvine, California
When Dennis hired The Tax Defenders, the IRS claimed he owed over $30,000. The debt had accumulated over 7 years. 99% of the original amount owed.

“The people at The Tax Defenders have been really great to me. They’re taking care of my tax debt. Tony has been a wonderful help. I thank you guys very, very much.
Vera Dlaikan, Detroit Michigan
Vera owed the IRS $15,000. She was deeply fearful of IRS collection tactics like wage garnishments. The Tax Defenders helped Vera settle with the IRS with an accepted Offer in Compromise amount of $1250. That’s 8 cents on the dollar. Pennies-On-Dollar settlements are possible for those who qualify.
“Me and my wife Jean want to thank both Sarah and Gwen from the bottom of my heart. They did a remarkable job in handling this Offer in Compromise for us. We really do appreciate the hard effort Sarah has put into this. She has been just a sweetheart. And I really want to say how much I’m really thankful and grateful of how hard you’ve worked on this and how you accomplished what you did accomplish for us. I will refer The Tax Defenders to every person in the car business that does need help like I did. Again from the bottom of my heart, God bless you both and thank you.”
Bruce & Jean Gillespie, Isanti, Minnesota
Bruce and Jean came to us after dealing with IRS problems for over 8 years. The IRS had threatened them with levies and garnishment and they were forced into a $500 a month payment plan which they couldn’t afford. They came to The Tax Defenders owing over $36,000 dollars to the IRS. With help from The Tax Defenders, the IRS accepted an offer of $14,000 for Bruce and $2,500 for Jean. That’s almost $20,000 SAVED.
“I would like to thank George and his staff for helping me out and working with me on my IRS problem. Oh man! You just don’t know how much of a relief (it is) for me to know what had just happened when I got through talking with George and The Tax Defenders. I would just like to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for making my day and helping me with this bad situation. I would recommend you to anybody else who needs help with their income tax problems. Thank you again.”
Danny Smith, Abilene, Texas
When Danny hired The Tax Defenders, his IRS debt seemed to be lingering forever. The Tax Defenders put together a strategy for Danny to drastically reduce his tax debt to a level where it was much more manageable.
“I want to tell you what a wonderful job Tony has been doing in my case. You’ve gotten the IRS to agree to a settlement offer of $578 a month down from the $8000 a month they’ve been asking for since this mess started. I wanted to say thank you. We’re very pleased with Tony and the TTD. Thank you again.
Katherine Lejune, Lake Charles, Missouri
Hurricane Katrina was more than a temporary setback for the Lejune family. Yet, Katherine’s testimonial proved that even such an act of God wouldn’t stop IRS collection efforts. With help from The Tax Defenders, the Lejune family can rebuild their home and their business without having to worry about bank levies or other seizures that would wreck already strained finances.
“Wanted to let you know about how pleased I am with The Tax Defenders’ services. You guys have been wonderful. Everybody has been very pleasant to deal with, above all, very efficient – getting things done in a timely manner, very professional, Ed, Kate, Brad have all been very was very helpful. Everyone’s been wonderful. I was working with a large national company previously and spent 2 1/2 years in a nightmare with them I could never get anyone to call me back, never got any feedback, it was just awful. So this experience has been a true joy to work with you guys. Thank you very much. You got my installment agreement already and we’re working on the final resolution of my case, and I could not be happier.”
Christine Gotwalt, Camphill, Pennsylvania
Christine wasted 2 1/2 years of time and thousands of dollars to receive no relief when she trusted another company to help her. After hiring The Tax Defenders, she received immediate tax relief from an agreed upon installment agreement which prevented further IRS collection actions like garnishments or levies. The Tax Defenders is working to reduce or remove over $5,000 in penalties.
“Gwen has been terrific. She has worked herself crazy trying to get this OIC (offer in compromise) accepted, we are just so pleased with the amount that we're having to pay. She deserves a raise. Thank you very much.”
Deanna and Willis Watkins, Indianapolis, Indiana
The Watkins’ couldn’t pay payroll taxes due to high medical bills when Willis had open heart surgery . In the midst of business and family turmoil, Dee turned over her IRS problems to The Tax Defenders. The Watkins’ owed over $216,000. Meanwhile, Dee and Willis received custody of their grandchild which further stressed their already delicate finances. The Tax Defenders helped Deanna and Willis settle with the IRS with an accepted offer in compromise of $4,000. This represents a settlement of $.02 for every dollar owed.
“We used The Tax Defenders to settle our IRS problems and they saved us over $10,000 dollars and we are extremely pleased with the response we got. We are very satisfied with the help and the service. Thank you again for saving us over $10,000 on our tax problems.”
Jeffrey & Gina Clouse, Kalispell, Montana

Gary Mednikov, Riverwoods, Illinois
Sometimes business owners need help navigating the IRS minefield. Gary ran into tax problems with the sale of one of his businesses and hired The Tax Defenders to negotiate with the IRS for him. Having attorneys and CPAs in his corner to make sure his rights are not trampled has allowed him to focus on his business not dealing with the IRS.
“We would like to thank you for helping us with the tax situation we were in. Thank you for talking to us and helping us understand and for working with us too.”
Toria & Carlos Clark, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Toria and Carlos Clark made a tax preparation mistake from which they were never able to recover. When the IRS came after this young family, they owed $7,400. Most tax resolution companies will not even look at a case if the amount owed is less than $10,000. After hiring The Tax Defenders, they got relief with an accepted offer in compromise for $643. That represents a 92% reduction in the tax amount owed.
“I have been a client of yours for several years and I just got a call from Gwen. We reached a settlement with the IRS. This has been a long drawn out process. Gwen and Beth are outstanding people. They’re professional and know what they're doing. I greatly appreciate the help that I've received from both these individuals. “Thank you all for your help and for your commitment to trying to help me. I'm sure the many others you are trying to help thank God. I thank you from the bottom of my heart... God bless you all and thank you very much.”
Curtiss & Carmen Peterson, Grove City, Ohio
Curtiss and Carmen got into tax trouble like many other small business by not making estimated tax payments. The Petersons retained The Tax Defenders to help them with a tax debt of more than $47,000. Originally, the plan was to settle with the IRS for $35,000 Unfortunately, the Peterson’s weren’t able to pay for it. American Tax Solutions did the next best thing, they negotiated an installment agreement based on the Petersons’ financial situation where the total amount paid to the IRS will be $10,000 dollars, resulting in a $37,000 savings.
“I owed $63,000 in taxes when I contacted American Tax Solutions. Alex was very helpful and got me through this process. Gwen pulled me through so many things, I will forever be grateful to them. My debt was reduced to $465. I really appreciate everything they’ve done. I really, really appreciate it. I would recommend them to anyone, to anyone. They’ve helped me through every process. In every way they have done this. Thank you so much, that’s all I can say to them. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."

“I want to thank all of you for everything that you've done for me...and the fact that I'm finally clear of this hanging over me for a long, long time. I now feel like I can proceed with my life. I have nothing left but at least I have the feeling that I have a chance to do something again and make my life into something. I’m terribly, terribly grateful to Gwen, Luis, to everyone who helped me and got me through this to the point where I'm completely clear. I will never forget you all for it. Thank you.”
Paul Renard, Homewood Flossmoor, Illinois
“I had a very difficult case, but they were willing to take it on. It was tricky and they did a very good job. I was pleased with the settlement, and I was especially pleased by the work that Elizabeth did on my behalf. She really took a personal interest in me and my case. I felt like I had someone really fighting for me, on my behalf with the IRS. And it made all the difference, and I was pleased with the result. I would certainly recommend The Tax Defenders to anyone...you know, there's a lot of people who are in my situation. You basically did what you said what you were gonna do...thank you.”
Jeff Tatz, Lawrenceville, Georgia
“I was happy to hear that my offer has been accepted. I would really like to thank Amy, Sarah and anyone else who was working on my case for all of their hard work. I just want to say thank you so much. A big burden has really, really been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.”
Beverly Norman, Atlanta, Georgia
“I’ve been in a world of hurt because I’ve ignored my tax bills for 6 years now. Alex and his staff have put up with so much from me and my panic which is not their fault. It was mine because I didn't do things right. They've helped me so much. They've taken all the stress away. They got my levy dropped. They got my tax pay off ready in a matter of 2 weeks. I love you all because I haven’t been an easy client but you guys really did take care of me and I love you all for it.”
Carol Seger, Waterloo, Iowa
“I would like to make a testimony, that The Tax Defenders definitely saved my financial sanity. I started out and I heard a lot about different companies out there, a lot of people contacted me stating that they could help me, and I heard a lot of horror stories that these (tax resolution) people really couldn’t help me.
“The Tax Defenders came through. I actually owed $129,000 over the past few years to the IRS. We tried an Offer in Compromise which turned out that it didn’t apply to me. But the people (at The Tax Defenders), especially Gwen, who I was working with her mostly in this transaction, were very attentive and very helpful. When the OIC didn’t apply, she negotiated with my Revenue Officer and got me an installment agreement which I was amazed at the amount of monthly payment that she negotiated. It was $100 a month for the first 3 years and then after that, it would be $500 a month for the next few years after that, I forgot how many years it is exactly, but at least I got 3 years at $100 per month and a total of $43,000 when I owed $129,000.
“To me, I am thankful for that. It gives me enough room to get my finances in order, and also to eliminate all my debt, so when that $500 per month does kick in, I can definitely afford that, especially if I don’t have any car note or any other kind of payments. I just want to say thank you to The Tax Defenders office.
“Even if Gwen didn’t answer (her phone), I always got someone that could just pull it up on the computer and they knew exactly what I was trying to do and they could answer my questions or Gwen got back in a timely manner. It was really a pleasure working with this company. I didn’t have to pay all upfront for my services either, they even worked with me on a payment plan to take care of the fee.”
Ellis W., San Antonio, Texas
Ellis is a realtor, and like many self- employed people, got into tax trouble for failure to make estimated tax payments. He thought he owed $129,000 but The Tax Defenders discovered he really owed $180,000. We had to negotiated a partial pay install agreement. Total payments to be made to the IRS $45,600. Pay plan details: $100 per month for 3 years, $500 per month for 7 years.
“I was pleasantly and professionally supported by The Tax Defenders and especially Brad who helped me close on a house sale for a lien. I’d like to offer my congratulations and thanks for a job well done. Thank you.”
Mike Humbert, Farmers Branch Texas
Mike hired The Tax Defenders owing over $115,000 to the IRS. To make matters worse, an IRS Revenue Officer was assigned to his case to enforce aggressive collections efforts immediately. Mike was in the midst of selling a property to help him pay for his IRS debt. The Tax Defenders helped him to navigate the minefield and get the result he wanted.
“The Tax Defenders have been working with us for the last 3 or 4 years. I just want to let folks know that after nearly 8 year of dealing with an IRS issue, we were able to resolve nearly a $55,000 debt today, consolidated down to $7,000.
“The trauma we’ve been thru with the IRS, the fact that our credit rate has been affected, (which was impeccable), the fact that had in many, many years. Thank you, Alex. Thank you, The Tax Defenders. Good luck to your business in the future, because if we have folks in the same situation. We definitely will be recommending them to you. Thanks again.”
Robert and Ellen Cook, Bahama, North Carolina
After a long and tiring battle with the IRS, the Cook family finally has resolved their tax problems. It took them several years and lots of back and forth with the IRS to get an Offer in Compromise accepted for $7,000 when they owed almost $55,000. That means The Tax Defenders helped them reduce their debt by over 87%.
“I definitely want to leave a testimonial for the organization. We had done a penalty abatement that was actually disapproved. Then we came back (on appeal) and then everything was in my favor and they said (the IRS) I’d get back somewhere between $2800 and $3200. Thanks to Gwen and the rest of TTD.”
Ray Dawson, Mission Viejo, California
“About a year ago, I had been pretty skeptical about doing this with the investment, but I’m very pleased with the job you guys have done for me. If future customers want to ask me what I think, for the validity of it... my email address is email@example.com, I’d be happy to let them know that I’m very happy and I don’t think I could have gotten this far with the IRS as quickly as they did for me. Thank you very much.”

“I had been working with Sarah and to resolve my tax issue and I want you to know I am so very pleased that the final bill on my tax is tremendously financially as I was truly unable to pay my taxes on time. I just want you to know I give thanks to all of you, especially to Sarah for I think she went out of her way to help me faster than normally would have been faster. I prayed for a faster resolution once I found out how efficient Sarah was. The prayers I said were answered. Thank you so much.”
Carolyn Kirchen, Clinton Township, Michigan
“I wanted to leave a testimonial regarding the fine work that The Tax Defenders and specifically Tony and Laura did in arranging an interim payment plan with the IRS. I thought we were in a position to get hammered yet again and these guys worked out a very favorable plan where we can actually breathe. I am very, very pleased and I just wanted to say that. Thank you so much to The Tax Defenders and these two hard working individuals. I really appreciate it.”
Paul Gerken, New York

“I want to let you know that I’m very happy with the services provided to me by you guys regarding my offer in compromise. Gwen has been an unbelievable help to me.

Jeffrey Poole, Edmonds, WA
The Pooles got in trouble with the IRS for not filing tax returns for several years. This resulted in a huge tax debt which surprised them since they usually received tax refunds. American Tax Solutions helped them file their missing returns and negotiated with the IRS to reduce penalties.
For quite awhile I’ve been having some problems with the IRS owing them about $40,000. It’s been a couple of years of ups and downs and it’s been really hard to reach them. I had many letters from different companies telling me that they could fix the problems but after reading through all of them, I thought that the Tax Defenders was the best one. They made feel at ease and they had a guarantee. After talking with them, they finally helped me settle with the IRS for $4,000, I’m very grateful to that and all the work they put into it. It’s just one of those feel-good moments that I’ve had this year. Hopefully, I will be able to come to some kind of payment plan with the IRS this year. It’s taken a big load off my shoulders and once again I’d like to thank the Tax Defenders for helping me out in this situation. Thank you.
