After many years of having tax debt, my balance wasn't decreasing. We talked to several of the resolution companies and got nowhere. Also, they were very expensive. Finally we decided to talk to a tax lawyer. I called several. We came across Tax Smith, so i talked to one of their consultants, He was very knowledgeable. We decided to move forward. Once we did, we talked to the staff at Tax Smith.Everyone has been very knowledgeable and friendly. They kept in touch with us with an update on our case. After nine months we came up with a resolution we could live with. I feel so much better knowing that I am on the right track. Angie takes time out of her busy day to reassure you and answer your questions. Thank you so much Tax Smith.

Excellent law firm. Highly recommend
We had a very large tax problem and anything that has to do with the IRS is no doubt nerve wracking and very stressful. After our pending tax bill sunk in, we did research as to see our options going forward. For a period of time we tried to discuss our situation and negotiate with the IRS in hopes we could come up with some kind of an amicable/reasonable settlement or arrangement. Unfortunately we did not at all succeed. We went back to the option table and started researching Tax Attorneys. We found most don't deal with the larger debts then we came across the firm TAX SMITH. Now with us living in California and them located in Jacksonville Florida, we at first had some reservations. It's definitely not every day we need the services of any lawyer much less a firm clear across the country but apparently this is not unusual. So we took the step and called the office to get further information and explain our very big mess and see if they could help. The initial gentleman was fantastic. He took the time to explain the process, answered all of our questions/concerns and was very upfront. Based upon our problem/large tax bill he gave us a set price and went through the option for payment plan and time to pay it off. It's a set price, no hidden fees and no matter how long the case takes there's no additional charges. It is also emphasized there's no guarantees your case will win which we appreciated the honesty going into a agreement with them. It's also emphasized the quality of the lawyers that will fight for you and they'll use anything and everything they can to fight for your case and how good they are at what they specialize in, TAX problems, big ones! So we started the process over the phone and from there to the end, everything is convenient and done through email, phone conversations and even text every now and then. We sent them all of our documents and they were on top of everything when they or the IRS needed anything additional. They are excellent with the communication. They kept us apprised of every step that was scheduled or what to possibly expect from their interaction with the IRS. Then just as things were moving along with our case, the pandemic hit. For a time the IRS offices they deal with had closed down, everything had come to a complete halt. They kept in touch with us through that delay period and assured us when they reopen they will be right back to the case filings and they certainly did. Being older and on limited income, the stresses of this entire mess we were in certainly can take its toll. Angie, Brianna, Christina and others were very understanding and genuine as to our personal stresses that were involved in this. Happy to report our case is finalized and the results were favorable to us. What a relief. Their experience, professionalism , honesty were very appreciated. We always were confident in knowing they truly were on your side, fighting for their clients and not just taking your money. As said earlier, there's no guarantees on the outcome and yes you still have to pay the fees no matter the outcome but know they are on your side and will fight for you We would highly recommend this firm for any complex tax problems big or small. Thanks for the excellent service Angie!

Tax worries gone
I issues with back taxes. After several years of doing nothing about it. Finally I looked on the web for tax attorney. After looking at several different sites I clicked on Taxsmith. It could’ve been easier. I answered a few short questions on my tax issue I said I would be getting a call. Less than 30 Minutes I received a callback from Angie. After explaining what was going on Angie said she could help me. Angie explained what was going to happen but she could do what do what if he was and she did she could help me take care of my problem I said OK pay the fee they contacted me the next day got all the information they needed after 30 days my tax problems were gone but a bit sooner if I got the information to them quicker. Now I don’t have to worry about any tax problems thanks to Tax Smith. Angie and the girls in the office were so professional never a question on height where you stood. I would recommend Tax Smith to people no problem Angie, Brianna people in the office thank you so much you’re a blessing! Scott Toney West Virginia

Due to a "perfect storm" we had years of outstanding tax returns. After working with a CPA that did not have our best interest in mind, we contacted TaxSmith. What a relief!! They quickly, efficiently and professionally reviewed and completed the returns that the former CPA had worked on for months without filing. Shaniece & Brianna were so good to work with. They then worked with IRS & the state department to settle our case. The stress that had been weighing me down has been lifted. I am so appreciative of the work Angie & the TaxSmith staff did on my behalf.

Top Notch Tax Representation - Look No Further...
I was more than satisfied with the advice and service provided by Attorney Smith and her staff. As an attorney myself, I had high expectations and they were all met. Professionalism, diligence, and intelligence aptly characterize what I experienced working with this law firm. Hire them!

Lawyer Smith
Lawyer Smith helped with redoing 3 years of taxes. She also helped with negotiating with the IRS since I don't earn enough on my disability check to pay back. Lawyer Smith has been doing my taxes since.

Tax Smith-Highly recommend!
Angie and the Tax Smith team did an excellent job getting all my back taxes squared away and getting me a resolution to keep the IRS off me and my business. They continue to do my yearly taxes because I trust them 100%!

When you need more than just a CPA
After a disastrous experience with a group of CPAs, I hired Angie and her team to clean up the tangled mess my taxes were in and to help me deal with the back taxes I owed. The team was personable and a pleasure to work with in such a high stress situation. I especially enjoyed talking with Brianna when she kept me well informed.

Mr.
TaxSmith attorneys helped me at my lowest point with the IRS. I was anticipating thousands of dollars taken from by garnishment and liens, that I was overwhelmed with emotion and anxiety. I called TaxSmith and consulted with their attorneys, and for a reasonable fee, and thru they're negotiations with the IRS, they were able to remove that burden from me. Please as a citizen don't try and face the IRS alone, seek help from a bonafide and trusted resource like TaxSmith to help you resolve your tax issues.

Excellent service!! Back to Normalcy!
When I first contacted and hired Taxsmith, LLC, I previously had contacted and met with a several other tax attorneys, explained to them my complicated situation as an international tax payer and the backlog of non reporting, they all asked for way too much money for the service and also did not provide me a an acceptable pathway. But when I first called Taxsmith, we spoke for a long time and I explained everything as a tax payer who lived and worked abroad for many years and was paying taxes abroad, they understood my situation and provided me a pathway to normalcy. I went from potentially owing to a credit situation with the IRS!!! I have hired them for the past 3 years and will keep them for many more. They truly deal with and understand international taxpayers!! My situation was complex and Taxsmith helped me meet the different reporting requirements as a U.S. taxpayer with assets and income earned abroad. You couldn't get more complicated as my case and they understood the details!! The devil is in the details!!! Taxsmith has been my angel that tackled the details and provided me a pathway to normalcy. Today I no longer fear filing my returns and always look forward to hear from Angie Smith. Personable and professional services!! Excellent!
