Isai is amazing. He is honest, kind, very thorough and professional. He is super available; he answers his phone a lot and returns calls and emails fast. He will give you an honest assessment about if he can help you. He refused to take money from us because we weren't good candidates for a settlement. He steered us in a different direction and gave us referrals to honest, quality accountants. Before we called Isai, we almost went with a lawyer who asked for money and power of attorney before she even knew the details of our case. Isai, thank you for not taking thousands of dollars from us knowing we wouldn't qualify! You're awesome. I will recommend you to others no question.

Bismark Tax was a life saver in my tax audit. Isai was very helpful and reassuring during a very stressful time. He definetly works hard for his clients and is on your side. Isai even managed to get me a refund from the IRS. He made the process easy for me and also educated me on taxes. He has a great team on his side as well. They all go above and beyond what they need to do to keep their clients happy. I had an issue with my scanner at the last minute and Isai sent one of his associates to pick up the paper work at my job. I felt that was very professional and kind on their part. Isai also gives back to the community by helping at risk youth which I think is really cool. The best decision I made was choosing Bismark Tax to represent me. Thank you!!!

Isai and his team are tax attorneys whom you can trust. He works hard and delivers good result. He keeps his promises and makes sure you are in good hands. I had to deal with an audit from the IRS, and was not looking forward to it. They threatened you with all these taxes and penalties, but Bismark Tax was able to remove 1000% of the penalties that they threatened me with. Isai and the other attorney are aggressive and they know what they are doing. The results were better than I could have hoped, the cost was beyond reasonable, and I will most likely not have to search for tax-related services again, now that I have found Isai and his team. He works hard for his customers. He calls back, he texts back and he emails back right away. I can’t possibly recommend highly enough.

Isai Cortez and Jason Peart are THE BEST tax lawyers I could have asked for. The IRS was asking for $76K and Jason got it reduced to $16K! I met with Isai first and he was very knowledgeable and confident. I met with Jason the second time. He was just as wonderful as Isai. Jason really dug in and got it DONE! I would recommend them to anyone who has a tax problem. They will give it their very best, they will communicate with you along the way, and they will give you a great result. I couldn't be happier!

Bismark Tax, Inc. saved my company in 2015 from hundreds and thousands of tax dollars of a situation we had been in from 2010-2014. I had lost all hope and was recommended to speak to Isai Cortez from another friend who had also used their services. I trusted my friend, read the reviews and decided to go hire them as my life saving lawyer/attorney. I couldn't sleep at nights, and was thinking of my very bad situation I was in. I thought it was impossible to get out of it, well Isai Cortez of Bismark Tax made a miracle happen. He did more than I expected, it was like magic. I just couldn't believe the phone I received when it was all over and done with. To this day, I am grateful that we still have an honest, hard working, lawyer who is fully dedicated to the customer and we definitely got our money's worth. Thank you Isai Cortez and Colin Shanahan and the rest of the team. You guys did a great job and I cannot thank you enough!

I reached out to Isai Cortez back in 2013 after I had been fed up with receiving notices from the IRS that they were trying to collect on my past due debt. They placed a lien on my credit report and as you can imagine a lien from the federal government doesn’t make you an ideal candidate for any kind of credit. I’ve seen many commercial for “Tax Attorney’s” who can help settle debt for pennies on the dollar. But let’s be honest, most of the time they sound like infomercials prying on late night television viewers.
At first I was very weary of trying to settle and had no idea what the “offer in compromise” program consisted of, but Mr. Cortez explained it to me and after being out of options decided I would give it a try.
The process itself was VERY slow and at times I became doubtful that we would ever reach an offer with the IRS. Mr. Cortez along with Jason Peart and the rest of his team had warned me of this, but I never expected it to be so long. The IRS likes to set strict deadlines for documentation they require and at times it was stressful but again Isai and Jason, worked with me around the clock and held my hand throughout the entire process.
Truthfully, I did not think the IRS would even want to settle on my $120,727, but they did and they did for $500, yes you read that right five hundred. I am extremely grateful for the hard work, honesty and dedication of Bismark Tax and I would recommend anyone I know to give them a try.

I was really rattled after my initial encounter with the IRS auditor, and called Isai after reading some reviews on yelp. He was very helpful, and took my case on, even though it was a rather small amount of tax due. I wanted a tax attorney to handle this, someone to push back against what i saw as an abusive, uncooperative auditing session. Isai not only knocked my tax due down from $6100 to $1950, he confronted this auditor (after confirming my belief that she was being unprofessional) and called her bluff with a possible letter to her superiors, then, after being kicked out of the interview, going back to her (at her request) and getting my numbers cut by 2/3. Thank you, Isai! I will be back. Too bad there's not 6 stars! You would get them from me.

Trust me don’t use anyone else but Bismark Tax. I used my tax preparer for two separate IRS audit years because his service included free audit representation. Big mistake, especially seeing my preparer was an Enrolled Agent not a CPA or Attorney like Isai at Bismark. My preparer gave me horrible advice which lead the IRS to drag in a third year to audit which was not smart at all. I of course fired my preparer and hired Bismark Tax immediately. This was the best decision so far. Isai was able to do his magic as a tax attorney and turn my horrible situation into a great outcome. A little background on Isai. His rates are very reasonable. He is very detail oriented and picks up his phone every time I call; unlike my preparer. I can tell that Isai really cares about you and is always looking out for your best interest. He is definitely not like your usual attorney who is all about the $$. I will be recommending Isai to all my friends and family. Don’t make my same mistake. Hire Isai as soon as you receive that dreaded IRS letter in the mail.

Having arrived at Isai office in an panic and with a lot of concern--Let face it I was a big baby having been to so many other legal professional. Needless to say I was a handful to deal with at the time. Isai is as good as it gets when it comes to an attorney who understands taxes, and the laws surrounding them. He works hard for his customers! He established a quick level of trust and sense of calmness when what seems to be a dead end situation. He constructs his explanation is fact and simple context so you can understand the situation clearly. He is beyond patient.
His assessment was accurate and the outcome was as he stated. I learned a lot form Isai. Did I say that he was PATIENT and alway responsive and reassuring. Thank you Isai. Isai is the 3rd tax attorney I worked with and he was the finest of them all. As a tax lawyer he had the most important characteristic that none of the others had... PROFESSIOALISM.

I am very happy with Isai. He knows his stuff, is very approachable and easy to work with. I'm grateful to him for walking me through a difficult audit.
