We had been receiving threatening letters from the IRS for several years. The notices were frightening enough, but the threats to confiscate property and bank accounts kept us awake at nights. We were 3 years behind on both our private business and our personal taxes. We desperately needed somebody to help us sort it all out. The amount of money we owed seemed overwhelming and we didn't know where or who to turn to for help. The idea of picking up the phone and calling the IRS was terrifying. We located Kevin Sayed from a google search and from the very first point of contact, he took the ball and ran with it. Along with offering us reassurances, he was able to wade through our pile of documents and get the taxes filed for all of the missing years - for both personal and business. He immediately contacted the IRS for us - at both the Federal and State levels. Because we had made a major move within the last few years, our returns involved filing within several states. Kevin and his staff handled it all with ease. Best of all, Kevin negotiated with the Federal and State tax officials and developed a reasonable monthly payment plan for us. During the process, Kevin was very quick to respond to all of our inquiries and kept us informed every step of the way. We plan on using Kevin whenever we need our taxes handled. He is professional, efficient, reassuring and takes control quickly of difficult situations. On top of that, he has a sense of humor (difficult to find with a lawyer, ha!). If you're in tax trouble with the IRS and don't know who to go to - we highly recommend Kevin Sayed. We are finally back to getting a good nights sleep and can live with the agreements Kevin worked out for us. Thank you so much, Kevin!!

My husband & I contacted Kevin's firm after a surprise levy from the state DOR left our bank acct with a $0 balance. From the moment Kevin got on the phone I felt instantly at peace. He was calm, understanding, downright funny at times (helped to break the tension!), and really knew his stuff. I was frantic when I made the call and by the time I was done talking with Kevin I felt like all was right with the world!
Meeting with him was just the same. He had answers to all my questions, was a complete straight-shooter (no beating around the bush or placating from this guy!), and managed to help us out with a back tax problem that has haunted us for 6 years! By the time Kevin got done playing phone tag with the state DOR, we had a feasible payment plan in place, the levy lifted from our bank account, and a promise that they would leave us alone as long as we held up our end of the bargain! YES! He did such a great job with my husband's state back tax problem that we've even retained him to work on my husband's IRS back tax problem now! He's THAT good!
On top of being a great lawyer, he's incredibly caring- even following up and asking if my husband was feeling better (he had the flu). He's also really quick on turnaround time. I've never called that he wasn't available and he is so quick on email it's ridiculous! I appreciated that he was so honest with me, like letting me know that stuff I was attempting to do myself (i.e. bargaining with the IRS) would have completely not worked because I didn't have all the pieces in place to do so effectively. Once he showed me the parts I was missing, I realized I wouldn't have been effective at all- thank goodness he's there to pick up my slack!
Kevin truly is a miracle worker and I would recommend him to the highest degree. I felt like we were never going to be able to get out from under the spectre of these taxing authorities and with his help I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you need help with taxation issues, he's your man!
