Tax problems solved!!
My husband and I had several years of non filed tax returns and the IRS was saying we owed over $100,000. We went to the law office of Monypeny and Associates for help because, quite frankly,I was scared to death. That was an enormous amount of money to us. We had no idea what to expect but the attorneys at Monypeny and Associates made us feel comfortable from the very first meeting. They helped us get all the paperwork in order and after they filed the amount went to just under $12,000. Monypeny and Associates got the IRS to take a very manageable monthly payment for us and now, a few years later, with this year's return we may have a refund coming. I cannot recommend this office enough. We could not be happier with the results and I would recommend them to anyone needing any help with the IRS.
