Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2010

Practice Area:Tax

Outcome:Significantly Reduced Tax Liability

Description:Taxpayer had an outstanding tax liability of over $5,200. The taxpayer failed to petition the Service for audit review or petition Tax Court. The IRS threated collection, levying existing property and garnishment of wages. The taxpayer was in dire situation. By opening the appeals process and asking the IRS to reconsider the case, I reduced the taxpayer’s liability to approximately $50.
