You can only understand financial fears once the IRS “contacts” you. They contact you with leans, by freezing your accounts, taking half your earnings, and finally a letter in the mail just to let you know you are now in big trouble… and if you have a professional license they can suspend that too. This was my experience with the IRS. They cleared my small savings and emptied my checking. before I first contacted Isai, I owed well into the six digits. I was scared and didn’t know what if anything could be done; I certainly didn’t want to make things worse by trying to fix things on my own, so I started looking for help. I searched Yelp to see if any reviews could point me in the right direction. After reading comments on other companies who claim to provide tax help I came across Bizmark. What I found was the comments on Isai and the Bizmark team were different. They were different because people could feel that this team does care about the people it represents. Isai (the team captain) helped me at a truly difficult time in my life, giving me a second chance with how much I owed. In our first conversation Isai showed me our game plan (no messing around with this guy); it set me at ease to know that he knew how to attack my huge problem. Isai is genuine and sincere in his words and efforts. His approach is to help you in anyway he can. Isai never treated me like a client but always as a friend; every meeting was started with a handshake and a hug. Those are things that you just and wont get from businesses who claim to want to help but in reality only want your money. Isai has a great team behind him, and that is what sets the bar even higher for others to reach; Jason is smart and a super-cool cat, and Angela was always friendly, kind, and very professional.
Right after hiring Isai he went to work. He stopped the wage garnishments, made sure I didn’t lose my professional license and always kept me up to date with what was going on and what I needed to do. Although there wasn’t much for me to do, when the Bizmark team asked me for papers I made sure not to waste any time in getting it to them and they did the rest. Isai kept everything truthful and honest with the IRS. That is very important because I don’t want to have to worry about any surprises in the future; and even with that Isai was still able to work a miracle for me. I can’t comment on what or how the Bizmark team dealt with the IRS because I have no idea, but I will comment on how much of a blessing piece of mind is. Just knowing you are not going to face a giant alone is a tremendous pressure off your shoulders. We always hear the commercials where they say “tax relief with pennies on the dollar”; but Isai, Jason and Angela delivered results with actions not words or empty promises. After you realize you need help (help with any tax/IRS issues), call Isai and see what it feels like when someone truly wants to help you and your family get into a better situation. Thank you Isai, Jason, and Angela… you gave me a second chance to do things right.

I was very lucky to find Isai of Bismark Tax 3 years ago after I was audited by the IRS. I called and spoke to him over the phone (he came highly recommended by a friend of mine). He answered all my questions and addressed as many concerns as he could over the phone. He was very clear and took his time explaining options relating to my situation.
We made an appointment and the rest is history. We've been going to him ever since for all our tax needs. He's been very caring and has made himself available to us via phone, text and email throughout the years.
I'd highly recommend him for all your tax needs.

Bismark Tax Service has been a lifesaver during some tough and very complicated times in my life. Ending up with a multiple year tax audits has been a terrifying experience. Through every step of this process, Isai Cortez, Jason Peart and the entire team at Bismark Tax Service, has been there to guide and mentor me.. Isai and Jason Peart have provided expert guidance and detailed explanations. I am fully confident in their work and dedication. It would be a mistake to go anywhere else. I trust the great experts at Bismark Tax Service and recommend them to all my friends.

Isai is amazing. He is honest, kind, very thorough and professional. He is super available; he answers his phone a lot and returns calls and emails fast. He will give you an honest assessment about if he can help you. He refused to take money from us because we weren't good candidates for a settlement. He steered us in a different direction and gave us referrals to honest, quality accountants. Before we called Isai, we almost went with a lawyer who asked for money and power of attorney before she even knew the details of our case. Isai, thank you for not taking thousands of dollars from us knowing we wouldn't qualify! You're awesome. I will recommend you to others no question.

Bismark Tax was a life saver in my tax audit. Isai was very helpful and reassuring during a very stressful time. He definetly works hard for his clients and is on your side. Isai even managed to get me a refund from the IRS. He made the process easy for me and also educated me on taxes. He has a great team on his side as well. They all go above and beyond what they need to do to keep their clients happy. I had an issue with my scanner at the last minute and Isai sent one of his associates to pick up the paper work at my job. I felt that was very professional and kind on their part. Isai also gives back to the community by helping at risk youth which I think is really cool. The best decision I made was choosing Bismark Tax to represent me. Thank you!!!

Isai and his team are tax attorneys whom you can trust. He works hard and delivers good result. He keeps his promises and makes sure you are in good hands. I had to deal with an audit from the IRS, and was not looking forward to it. They threatened you with all these taxes and penalties, but Bismark Tax was able to remove 1000% of the penalties that they threatened me with. Isai and the other attorney are aggressive and they know what they are doing. The results were better than I could have hoped, the cost was beyond reasonable, and I will most likely not have to search for tax-related services again, now that I have found Isai and his team. He works hard for his customers. He calls back, he texts back and he emails back right away. I can’t possibly recommend highly enough.

Isai Cortez and Jason Peart are THE BEST tax lawyers I could have asked for. The IRS was asking for $76K and Jason got it reduced to $16K! I met with Isai first and he was very knowledgeable and confident. I met with Jason the second time. He was just as wonderful as Isai. Jason really dug in and got it DONE! I would recommend them to anyone who has a tax problem. They will give it their very best, they will communicate with you along the way, and they will give you a great result. I couldn't be happier!

Bismark Tax, Inc. saved my company in 2015 from hundreds and thousands of tax dollars of a situation we had been in from 2010-2014. I had lost all hope and was recommended to speak to Isai Cortez from another friend who had also used their services. I trusted my friend, read the reviews and decided to go hire them as my life saving lawyer/attorney. I couldn't sleep at nights, and was thinking of my very bad situation I was in. I thought it was impossible to get out of it, well Isai Cortez of Bismark Tax made a miracle happen. He did more than I expected, it was like magic. I just couldn't believe the phone I received when it was all over and done with. To this day, I am grateful that we still have an honest, hard working, lawyer who is fully dedicated to the customer and we definitely got our money's worth. Thank you Isai Cortez and Colin Shanahan and the rest of the team. You guys did a great job and I cannot thank you enough!

I reached out to Isai Cortez back in 2013 after I had been fed up with receiving notices from the IRS that they were trying to collect on my past due debt. They placed a lien on my credit report and as you can imagine a lien from the federal government doesn’t make you an ideal candidate for any kind of credit. I’ve seen many commercial for “Tax Attorney’s” who can help settle debt for pennies on the dollar. But let’s be honest, most of the time they sound like infomercials prying on late night television viewers.
At first I was very weary of trying to settle and had no idea what the “offer in compromise” program consisted of, but Mr. Cortez explained it to me and after being out of options decided I would give it a try.
The process itself was VERY slow and at times I became doubtful that we would ever reach an offer with the IRS. Mr. Cortez along with Jason Peart and the rest of his team had warned me of this, but I never expected it to be so long. The IRS likes to set strict deadlines for documentation they require and at times it was stressful but again Isai and Jason, worked with me around the clock and held my hand throughout the entire process.
Truthfully, I did not think the IRS would even want to settle on my $120,727, but they did and they did for $500, yes you read that right five hundred. I am extremely grateful for the hard work, honesty and dedication of Bismark Tax and I would recommend anyone I know to give them a try.

I was really rattled after my initial encounter with the IRS auditor, and called Isai after reading some reviews on yelp. He was very helpful, and took my case on, even though it was a rather small amount of tax due. I wanted a tax attorney to handle this, someone to push back against what i saw as an abusive, uncooperative auditing session. Isai not only knocked my tax due down from $6100 to $1950, he confronted this auditor (after confirming my belief that she was being unprofessional) and called her bluff with a possible letter to her superiors, then, after being kicked out of the interview, going back to her (at her request) and getting my numbers cut by 2/3. Thank you, Isai! I will be back. Too bad there's not 6 stars! You would get them from me.
