Very professional
Very prompt response and very professional. Had a very large amount of back taxes owed and he kept my mind at ease. Still waiting on response but it hasn't been long.

An expert in tax audit
Rick is a rare expert in tax audits, and was also incredibly communicative, helpful, and professional. He took calls same-day, and took the time to explain and advise. The best CPA I've ever worked with!

Tax Appeal
I received notification from the IRS on some significant back taxes owed. I was referred to Rick through my employer’s legal benefit service. Rick responded immediately, explained the exact nature of the IRS’ request and provided me confidence in exactly how he would respond on my behalf. I forwarded the documentation he requested and within 48 hours he had sent my response to the IRS. My liability was reduced to a much less significant amount. I appreciated Rick’s prompt communication and knowledgeable explanation to all my concerns and questions.

great personal tax attorney
James assisted me with in responding to an IRS collection notice which I believed to be in error. He walked me through what to expect, timing, potential outcomes. He communicates in a timely manner and the matter was resolved within the timeline he communicated. I would recommend using James for personal tax matters w/ the IRS.

Patient guidance / prompt attention
I had a big problem. In January, I contacted Rick after the IRS informed me that I owed a large sum (approaching 6 digits). I was certain they were in error but the tone and confusing calculations on their correspondence created doubt. After reviewing all of the records I provided, he promptly reached out to the IRS on my behalf. The IRS pushed back 2 months later. I was already thinking about liquidating assets to cover the bill, but Rick assured me that we should try again. The IRS acknowledged our second response and said they would respond within 60 days. By now it's summer and I am sweating more than ever. Then a letter arrives from the IRS indicating that they had reviewed and found that I did not owe anything. In fact, they calculated that they actually owed me a small refund. Without Rick, if I was acting on my own, I would have caved and paid what the IRS said. I am very grateful for Rick's advice and persistence. He knew how to phrase the response in a manner that resulted in a very satisfactory outcome.

Helped with the IRS
Mr. Yandle offered good advice and advised me through every step with the IRS. He called when he said he would, and helped me negotiate a settlement plan I can live with.

Unprofessional and Bad Legal Advice
He gave me bad legal advice. He was also unprofessional and ended up my call before my 30 min appointment ends. Don't waste your time calling Rick!
