Outstanding Firm and Team
Steven and his team literally saved my life. I had been dealing with the IRS, largely on my own, for about 15 years -- making payments, receiving threatening letters, having my bank accounts periodically wiped. The "help" I had been receiving at times from other so-called tax professionals left me thinking I would never climb out of the hole because it never seemed to get better. I found Goldburd McCone a few years ago, and from the very first phone call with Steven, I knew I would finally be ok. He was on my side and I knew it right away! The team are always there when I need them; no question or concern too big or too small. There was never any judgement. There was always good-natured discussions - even at my most stressful moments (e.g. stranded in Buffalo while trying to renew my passport where, instead of renewing, the IRS confiscated). During these times, they would put me at ease and even make me laugh (Steven: "If I can get a client home from Germany, I can get you home from Buffalo."). They worked with the IRS on my behalf and resolved my issues. I am finally, after nearly 18 years, on the other side of this horror. And I owe it all to this team. I can never adequately express my gratitude and appreciation. My heartfelt thanks to the entire team!

Handling of Tax Issues
I have used Mr Goldburd for two complicated matters with the IRS. In both cases, he and his associates handled the matter professionally, courteously and with excellent results. I highly recommend him!

Efficient, Respectful, and Effective Legal Services
Steven Goldburd arranged for the establishment of my corporation efficiently, effectively, rapidly, with respect, and his fees were competitive. In short, this was a thoroughly pleasant interaction.

Great NY Tax Attorney
I needed an tax attorney to make sure my overseas bank account was going to meet all requirements for the Fatca back in 2012. Steven was easy to deal with, got straight to the point on what would need to be verified as documentation goes and was very knowledgeable to all that pertains to overseas tax law matters both Federal and NY's. His card is in my wallet. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to have piece of mind their tax liabilities are in check if they have funds in other countries.

Tax Liens
Steve Goldbur is a excellent lawyer. My family and I were looking for attorney to help us with the IRS. Luckily we found Steve through my accountant. He came highly recommend and exceeded our expectations. He's very knowledgeable and an expert in tax law which resulting in winning our case freeing us from 1.5 million dollars in liens. He treated us like family and comforted our worries. He always returned our phone calls promptly and kept us in the loop. He worked diligently on our behalf with the IRS, and because of him I can sleep at night worry free. Thank you Steve for everything you did for me and my family.

Superb Tax Attorney!
When I first met Steven Goldburd in 2007 I was facing a tsunami of trouble from the IRS. I was terrified. Mr. Goldburd took charge of the situation, calmed me down and worked out a terrific deal with the IRS and NY State. He's something of a financial genius. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone and I do. He's the best.

Fair, Honest, Really Delivered
Steven Goldburd did a wonderful job of solving a major tax problem for me. I fell behind on several years of tax payments, and Steven stopped the action that the IRS was about to take, negotiated a fair settlement for me, and arranged a payment plan for me. I was very satisfied with the service I received. Steven was never judgmental -- he was solidly on my side.

Too expensive and not client centered
I have phone interviewed Mr. Steven Goldburd for representing me in a tax related matter and was so disappointed. Mr. Steven Goldburd has spent most his time over the phone talking about his retainer and hourly rates and never asked what I as a client want from the client - attorney relationship. Based on the phone interview, I think Mr. Steven Goldburd's tax services are just for the rich medical doctors etc. not for average clients like me. So disappointed.

Response from Steven Goldburd December 3, 2018
K, I am sorry that you feel this way and I understand that you are frustrated about being audited by the IRS when you “are not a rich medical doctor.” Nevertheless, after a 45-minute phone consultation I believe that you clearly explained what you wanted from the attorney-client relationship. Unfortunately, your request that we simply confirm that your paperwork was in sufficient and in good shape for the IRS to review, is not a service that we can provide during a free one-hour consultation. As was explained, the one-hour consultation is for our potential clients to meet us and explain the facts of their tax issue to us without incurring fees. According to the American Bar Association, true legal advice or work can only be provided upon receipt of a formal legal retainer. Still, we agreed to meet you once again for an additional “free consultation” in our office after the initial 45-minute phone conference, a meeting that you called back to cancel. Once again, I am sorry for your frustration and disappointment and wish you the best of luck with your audit. Best. Steven

It’s not FREE it’s $550 for a consultation
I called this number and they say it’s 550 for unlimited time consultation with Steven Goldburd. They say they dont care about this website which is a third party and the info is dated. They don’t care about what this website says and they pay for their own website citing that consultation is 550. What a scam!!!!
Response from Steven Goldburd October 7, 2021
Dear Anonymous, That is correct, we no longer have a free consultation, we stopped doing so about a year or so ago. If you are basing the "free consultation" on a three year old response, I am sorry. Our consultation fees are in line with our billable hour rates. If you would like to discuss your tax issue, feel free to call us back to discuss.
