Don't leave your IRS trouble to anyone other than the BEST - Chad Silver, ESQ
I was so worried about the IRS notices I was receiving and thought that my bank account was going to be levied - UNTIL I talked to Chad. What a relief he provided and I no longer have to talk or deal with the IRS as Chad does all the talking me. He reduced my debt, penalties and interest - thank you Chad and 1-800-LAW-FIRM. I would recommend you to anyone dealing with these issues.

Criminal Investigator Came to my Door!
An IRS Criminal Investigator came snooping around my house and began asking me a lot of alarming questions. The investigator had a badge and a gun! Basically he was not welcomed into my house. The Tax Attorneys at 1-800-LAW-FIRM calmed me down. The tax attorneys told me that an IRS criminal investigator investigates tax crimes and helps prosecute tax crimes. I was very disturbed by the IRS coming to my house. I thought I might be able to talk myself out of the problem but the tax attorneys told me this was a bad idea. The Attorneys talked to the Investigator and after some negotiation the problem went away. That’s all I can really say about this but the Attorneys did a good job and I did not go to jail.

10 Years of Unfiled Tax Returns Owed $220,000 –Reduced to $18,000
I just never filed tax returns for years. That was the last thing on my mind but I knew something was wrong when my employer got a wage garnishment and it said I owed over $220,000. Thought I was having a heart attack from that one. The payroll people told me to find a tax attorney like asap. Found Attorney Chad Silver at 1-800-LAW-FIRM. The team had a phone consultation with me and told me exactly what they would do to help. They worked fast and it was an emergency situation for sure. They completed the tax returns and good thing because I threw away all my records. They were able to get the tax debt reduced by more than I could have hoped for. Also, in some years I was to get a refund that was to go against how much I owed. Wow what I mess. So it all got fixed and the IRS did not touch my wages. Worth every penny for the help!

Won Identity Theft Case
IRS sent me letters saying I had to pay them back for a big tax refund I got. I was shocked because I did not get any type of refund. I could not figure out what was going on and I was scared. So I started calling some people to figure out what to do. My CPA referred me to Federal Tax Defense at 1-800-LAW-FIRM – I had about a 20 minute conversation with one of the Tax guru’s over there who totally knew what I was going thru. I completed the paperwork and they called the IRS for me and explained what was going on. It seemed fairly easy to them but very complicated to me. The Tax Defense team got the IRS to begin an investigation on my case and all the crazy letters stopped. Now I am able to move forward because the identity theft defense was granted by the IRS – my Lawyers won. I’m glad I retained a Tax Defense team who knew what they were doing. I made a good decision and their customer service was very good. Thank you.

Won IRS Audit
The IRS audited me for 2010, 2011, and 2012. The IRS sent me a bill for like $36,000. I took my case to 1-800-LAW-FIRM and Tax Attorney Chad Silver and his team reviewed the case and told me the IRS was totally wrong about how much I owed. I just was not organized and the Tax defense team got me organized and told me what to say and not say when talking to the IRS. I had no idea what my rights were. They looked at all my paperwork and negotiated on my behalf. I wish I hired this team earlier but I did not know where to look.

Won - IRS Hardship Granted
I owed about $25,000 to the IRS and they finally caught up to me. IRS got my attention when I opened a certified IRS letter which said I had about 30 days or they were going to levy my bank accounts and paycheck. I think the letters said Final Notice of Intent to Levy. Found Tax Attorney Chad Silver at 1-800-LAW-FIRM when I was searching online. Even though I was working I still qualified for a hardship because my expenses were very high. The IRS backed off thanks to hiring a very tough Tax Defense Attorney team led by Attorney Silver. I think you want to hire a team of Tax Attorneys if possible. Called to a few different places and found that these folks treated me with the most respect and seemed to know the most out of those other firms. I noticed that at least 3 attorneys were named to my case which was a very confident feeling. Hire them.

IRS Agent Contacted Me
I’m a realtor who was caught up in the economic downturn of 2008. I could not afford to pay anything to anyone let alone the IRS. Now, we all know the economic climate for real estate is good and I’m making money. An IRS Agent contacted me and I freaked out. It seems they know when you start making money and start going after you. Was referred to Mr. Silver at 1-800-LAW-FIRM who met with me. The consultation was free and he walked me through the process he takes which was much different than anyone else I spoke with. I did shop around to see what other attorneys told me. Those other attorneys wanted a large up front retainer agreement and would not put me into any type of payment plan. Tax Attorney Silver did put me into a payment plan and said that they do not hold up paperwork while I am on a payment plan. Long story short – this was a good move and my tax situation is under control. I never spoke with that IRS Agent again. Wow that was easy and a good decision to hire him.

Settled My IRS and State Tax Debt Once and for All
Tax Attorney Silver completed a Federal and State Investigation and financial review to understand what my options were. He contacted the State of Michigan and IRS to tell them I was being represented by a Tax Attorney. He walked me through the process and let me know my options. I was able to file new tax returns because I never filed tax returns before. The IRS and State filed them for me and the balance seemed crazy large. Filing those new tax returns plus Mr. Silver negotiating on my behalf to eliminate the penalties lowered my tax bill down to something I could finally afford to pay off. Now I am caught up on my taxes and have a plan in place to not let this happen again. Thank you very much.

Won my Innocent Spouse Relief Case
I had a very complicated problem. My husband (now ex husband – thank god) put tax returns in front of me that I signed in the parking lot after work. I did not know what was on those returns. I knew there was a big problem when the IRS notices came and threw me off guard and I could not understand them at all. I could not figure out how I owed anything. Was referred to Mr. Silver by a friend. I met with Mr. Silver who told me I would probably qualify for innocent spouse relief. I trusted that he knew a lot more than I did. I did think I was innocent because I thought it was weird how my ex had me sign those returns. After he filed for innocent spouse relief the threatening IRS letters stopped. Everytime I called his office someone was able to give me an update on my case so it seems like the office is very organized. The innocent spouse relief was given to me so Mr. Silver won!

Excellent Tax Lawyer - Fair Pricing
The State of Michigan garnished my wages and I started receiving notices from the IRS. Contacted Tax Attorney Chad Silver. We met face to face at 1-800-LAW-FIRM office in Southfield the next day. Wow, from the first instant I felt like I was being treated with dignity, respect, and felt at home in the office. They have a receptionist whose title is Director First Impressions. That is exactly a fitting name for her because my first impressions were very good. There are many Tax Attorneys there but I did meet with Attorney Silver. Greeted me with a handshake and a smile and told me everything was going to be ok and that I would not have to speak to any people from Michigan or the IRS. He explained the process to me and made sure I understood exactly what was happening and what to expect. I did not have a lot of money so the payment plan he put together was very helpful. I highly recommend Tax Attorney Chad Silver for your tax problem.

Highly Recommend - Lifted Wage Garnishment Quickly
I did not know how many years of tax returns I had not filed. Many threatening IRS letters were coming to my house. I waited so long that the IRS told my employer I was going to be garnished. Still I did not do anything. The IRS did not mess around and garnished my wages. My employer found Tax Attorney Chad Silver online and told me to call him. I did and spoke with Attorney Silver. He told me my options and that his firm could stop the IRS and negotiate the garnishment lift immediately. They completed an investigation and informed of my options. They did in fact lift the garnishment and I was very relieved!

Successful Offer in Compromise
Tax Attorney Silver was able to negotiate and offer in compromise of a $150,000 down to $20,000. It does seem like a lot but a lot more affordable than $150,000. I was happy with that offer. I had some bad experiences at other firms where they took my money and did nothing. I thought those were law firms but really those were just tax resolution companies or tax networks not law firms. Be really careful who you hire and make sure they are a law firm. The owner of the firm must be a lawyer like Mr. Silver or it cannot be a law firm. I learned the hard way. Hire a real law firm with tax lawyers. Hire this Tax Attorney Silver and you will be in good shape.

Thank You TaxAttorney Silver!
I had not filed tax returns for many years. IRS finally caught up to me and made some assessments on those years. It seemed like the amount the IRS wanted was crazy. Tax Attorney Chad Silver completed new returns to argue the IRS was wrong. Lowered the amount I owed by thousands of dollars. Was very fortunate to have good Tax Lawyers. Annie H., Maryland
