Unpaid tax debt or unfiled returns can eventually lead to financial difficulties. Ignoring the attempts of the IRS to reach you will not make it go away. Whatever the reason for not paying taxes, eventually the IRS will catch up with you. After multiple efforts to collect the debt, the IRS will take action.
Here are some common methods taken by IRS:
Regardless of the actual value of your hard earned assets, it’s important that you establish protection and avoid being forced into a deeper hardship than you’re already in.

These people are just great. They helped me when no one else would. I fully trust them handling my affairs with the IRS. I received a levy at work around 9am to be garnished. They took care of it asap within a few hours and I no longer have long nights praying for tax relief. This company is a blessing, shout out to COLLEEN she and staff are the best.
I received a Levy from IRS that went through my employer. I was very worried and nervous when I received it. I did my research and I thought the worst possible scenario. As the head household and only one in my family making income, I felt there was no hope. I decided to ask someone for help. I found out that a tax attorney would be the best option to help in this situation. I did some research on BBB website and also google reviews. I was able to find The Tax Defenders. I went ahead sent a message through their website. I stressed the sense of urgency and how worried I was when I sent the message. At this point within less then an hour I received a text back from Senior Tax Attorney Kelly Hanley. I called her back right away. When speaking to her she was very knowledgeable, empathic, listened to all the details available at the time. We were on the phone for over 30 minutes. She was very nice, caring, offer me options and solutions to what I should do. My financial situation currently is not at best, but I explain in details to Kelly what I can and can not do. The levy it self was a concern and defiantly would make it worst. Any other Lawyer would not care about a person situation, what they are going through and how they feel. Usually, lawyers care about money and pay me first, before they offer their help. This is not in case Kelley and Tax Defenders she offer to help in any way she could and took time out of busy schedule to follow up and offer her help. Money to them was not what it was all about, but helping a fellow person who is in despair. This is rarity that never happens in world we live in now or in the business world. Kelley and The Tax Defenders was a blessing and gave me hope in my time of need. Kelley reach out to me and show that cared about me and my situation with a few more calls and text. She went above and beyond to follow up to me every time I did something to fix my situation ( including conversation with HR, calling the IRS, and explaining the best way to fix and avoid the situation not to happen again in the future). She walked through with me step by step and I feel confident with her support there was hope on the other side. Even to this point in time we still keep in touch to make sure that this situation I am in get resolved and follow up to the point that this is past me. Kelley is the best and I appreciate her to fullest. I think without her I would have been still lost and be taken advantage by any other lawyer. Please reach out The Tax Defenders I recommend them to anyone and everyone to please contact them. You will have hope and solutions with them.
When I first received notice of a large federal tax lien, I contacted this group. They spent all the time necessary to receive and process my tax/financial circumstance, to access my IRS info, and prepared a 50 page comprehensive dossier. It addressed potential programs available to resolve this issue. And though, in the final analysis, I did not qualify for any of these remedies, all of this research and consultation cost me NOT ONE CENT. They are sincerely interested in helping you and if you do not benefit from their help, it's free. Integrity is the by-word here. Thank you Tax Defenders for being there for me.
"READ THIS. It's my story. I got a call my father, 2 states away, was in ICU. 10 hours later I was next to him making my peace. Good news- he recovered fully. Good news- I was given a 2nd chance to prepare for the inevitable and guarantee I would not ever again be put in the situation of having virtually zero options. Good news- I took care of it and got my father's affairs in order. Bad news- took less than 2 days for me to find out the IRS had a $104,000 lein on his payed for home in Florida. Bad news- Yes, you read correct, OVER ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS from a tax year 8 or 9 years prior was what the IRS had guaranteed themselves they would get. They don't care, they just sit back waiting for red flag notice that he passed away so they can strike. Bad news- what the heck am I to do about this? Good news- I made the decision and called The Tax Defenders for advice. Better news- I talked with Senior Tax Attorney Chad Dickinson from The Tax Defenders and it was pretty clear from the start of that consultation that he was my answer. Best news- They accepted monthly payments, they told me all my options. We agreed on a course of action and the best news of all is they accomplished more than they promised faster than promised. 4 months later I'm looking at some IRS mail saying my father's IRS debt had been adjusted to $0 and the lein removed. And get this, also enclosed was a refund check of $809.
MY OPINION AND REVIEW? THEY DID WHAT THEY Said, FASTER THAN PROMISED AND IN NO WAY OVER PROMISED ANYTHING. I CAN NOT BE ANY MORE CLEAR THAN THIS TRUE STATEMENT. (IN 4 MONTHS I WENT FROM IRS SAYING THEY NEED OVER A HUNDREDN DOLLARS FROM MY DAD TO A REFUND CHECK IN THE MAIL.. YES...... THAT'S THE DEFINITION OF 5 STATES"
I first spoke with George about 4 years ago about some advice I needed with tax needs. Everything went smooth and was very pleased with the results. I recently received a letter and called George with my concerns. He was very thorough and got back to me within 3 days and eased my concerns. If anyone needs help with dealing with their tax problems I strongly recommend The Tax Defenders.
Since having a lien placed on me I have received nothing but fear tactic based advertising EXCEPT from The Tax Defenders. They took a genuinely helpful approach. They were quick to answer my questions and were even honest enough to let me know that at this time their services would not be a good use of my money. I respect that they are willing to pass on a client in good faith as part of their effort to offer accurate and helpful guidance. They are obviously well versed in tax laws and are a company that I would recommend for an honest opinion and helpful advice.
Hi, I'm Henry Gonsalves, I called this company and talked to George, he explained every question I had, in detail, and explaining the difference between tax leavys and Leins. I had a leavy last year and received hundreds of letters from different company's offering help. I held on to the tax Defender letter because out of all of them it appeared to be genuine. And it was, they weren't able to Change my situation, they are worth calling to find out if they can help you. I appreciate the honesty and Great Service.
Thanks again George,
Before I worked with the Tax Defenders I had over ten thousand dollars I owed. I am 64, low income, and on SS. Tax Defenders didn't charge me anything to review my case. They were great to work with and told me that if I would wait a little longer that I would reach the statute of limitations and what I owed would drop. They also said I had no leins and the IRS had me on non-collectable status. And best of all, it didn't cost me anything.
The staff at The Tax Defenders has gone out of their way to help us with our IRS tax situation. They were able to secure a partial pay agreement with the IRS that we could afford and that protected us from further garnishment, frozen assets, and liens that would keep us from getting a mortgage for our home. Our most recent request for help, as a result of a negative letter from the IRS, led us to a very helpful attorney at The Tax Defenders. He was extremely quick, assertive, and communicative. He resolved the situation in hyper-time! Thank you Tax Defenders for taking great care of us with a situation that could have destroyed us financially!!!
I first contacted George Diversiev to help with a very old IRS issue I had forgotten about. He was extremely helpful. I turned all matters over to him and he was able to help negotiate a much more reasonable matter for me. Tax defenders is very professional and very effective.
