Top notch service
This company has the best tax attorneys in Maryland. They actually listen to you first to find out what your needs are. Then they work with you to get the job done in a timely matter. They have helped us to get our taxes in order and arrange an installment agreement with IRS that fits our budget. I I cannot say enough good things about this company. If you are having problems with the IRS this is the company to use.

So honored to have worked with this company!!
Best experience ever. I originally hired a different tax firm that did nothing for me in the three months that I was signed up with them. I then found Stanley Block and they handled my situation in three days!! When I tell you this firm is very professional, great communication and ready to go to bat for you, I’m not lying. Try not to get into any tax troubles but this firm I highly recommend.

Top notch
I had the opportunity to work with SH Block Tax to settle an IRS tax audit. The team is amazing! They communicated with me every step of the way and ultimately helped me win my case! Initially the IRS said I owed $10k. With the help of Eric and his team, the IRS closed my case and made no changes to my 2016 taxes. I didn’t have to pay the IRS anything! This was a huge relief for me. I would definitely recommend working with the team to handle tax audits and/or amendments. SH Block Tax Services also did my 2018 tax return. Check them out for all your tax service needs! I definitely recommend them.

After contacting Mr. Block for a tax consultation I quickly decided that I wanted him to represent my interests. Mr. Block provided me with courteous and highly professional services and tax advice. The benefit was mutual.

GREAT..!!!!! My tax issue was solved in record time after handing it over to Mr. Block to settle. A huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I cannot say enough about how helpful Mr. Block and Marcy were to me. They were both so kind and caring. This is the place to solve your tax issues with the IRS. AMAZING... Thankyou so much.

Whart did I pay for?
Personally, this was a delightful person whose family works alongside him at this firm. I needed help filing seven year old state taxes that had fallen through the cracks. He wanted $1,000 upfront, and then another $500 for his tax prep person to file my taxes - although he agreed to $350. What did I get in return? I had to print out the two pages of taxes, and pay $555 in taxes owed to clear a $16,000 judgement in a Maryland county court (I've lived in Florida for six years). The judgement was automatically lifted, but will remain on my credit bureaus. Also, Maryland wants another $3,200 to settle the penalties. I called for help, and he told me just to pay it. That's it. No calling the Comptroller on my behalf, or any offer to help other than to pay them - and then try to challenge them. In all, save your money or go to someone who will provide value for your hard earned dollars. $1,350 paid is on my and was my mistake for something so simple - but I hoped and he led me to believe that he would help me clear all of this up after I paid the tax due, followed by 13% per year (which amounts to $500 and change). I am very disappointed with practice.

Response from Stanley Block September 19, 2016
Mark, I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with the service we provided. I am pleased that you noticed our warm family run atmosphere. In regards to your review of our fees and services in connection with your case, I have to disagree with your assessment. Please allow me to explain. All clients are charged a Power of Attorney fee and in your case, you received a discounted POA fee because the scope of the work was not as extensive as many other cases. Please understand the POA fee is a flat fee we charge all clients and can be paid in installments. We do not require the whole fee paid upfront. I am sorry if there was some misunderstanding but we work with many of our clients on payment arrangements. The POA fee you paid includes going on record as your representative, researching your case, obtaining your transcripts, advising you of the proper procedures governed by law and the Internal Revenue Manual, phone calls, meetings with an attorney, meetings with an Enrolled Agent, all of this; with no time limit or additional fee. The second fee you are referring to is tax preparation. We are one of the only tax resolution firms that offer in house tax preparation and the returns are completed by Enrolled Agents and not just tax preparers. Our fees for tax preparation are highly competitive and as you mentioned, we even gave you a $150 discount. After emailing you on 7/27/2016, we indicated the beginning estimation for your tax preparation was actually less than we originally had thought it would be. During this email exchange we also advised that your completed tax returns would be uploaded to your private client portal for your review and once completed you had the option of printing them out yourself or we could print them out and overnight them to your home. On 8/5/16, by email, you expressed your desire to print out the returns and mail them in yourself. The balance we helped you clear up which was significant and instead, after we worked your case, you owed a smaller amount to the State of Maryland. As for the penalties and interest, you are mistaken as to the amount. Our office obtained a very different pay off amount. Also please understand when we advised you to pay Maryland this is standard procedure. We would like to help you clear up this matter and make sure you truly understand the facts of your case. If you will please call our office at 410-727-6006 one of the staff would be happy to speak to you regarding your case.
