Practice areas
  1. Tax
    Receiving a letter from the IRS or the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) of the state of California can be a stressful surprise. But don't dispair - what the letter states you owe may not necessarily be what you owe, but rather just a start to negotiation.

    10 years, 100 cases

    If you are in business or own investment property, you may wish to create a Corporation or LLC. Deprez Tax Law consults w/ business & real estate owners so that they are aware of federal and state laws governing creation, ownership and operation.

  3. Real estate
    Deprez Tax Law consults and advises homeowners and investors in planning for tax efficient ownership and sale of real estate. We create business entities (LLCs, corporation) for tax, legal, and organization benefits.

IRS Tax Resolution - Exceptional expertise and results
What a miracle worker Johan is! When you're over $60k past due from successive years with the IRS, it can all seem hopeless. The anxiety-producing letters, the pervasive sense of looming financial danger and possible's overwhelming. When you hear the endless tax resolution commercials on the radio and you call these companies, only to speak with a barely trained rep who is big on promises and light on any substantive knowledge, where do you turn? I was recommended to Johan by a third party (another lawyer) and took a leap of faith based on the first call with him where he immediately put me at ease with his intellect, quick grasp of the scenario and thorough overview of the steps required in addressing our issues. Johan's right hand, Tyler, expertly handled the subsequent compilation of everything we'd need to seek an offer in compromise with the IRS. Within a year's time, with meticulous guidance from Johan and Ty across this period, the bulk of the back taxes were forgiven and an incredibly small amount was negotiated with the IRS to close this painful chapter in our life. You pray for a lawyer that uses their experience and intelligence to benefit you as a client but finding someone who not only delivers but demonstrates an enormous amount of patience and a surprising level of compassion is nothing short of miraculous. If you are struggling with tax issues and the IRS, a call to Johan is the first step you should take. I can't recommend anyone (both he and Tyler) more.

Fixed Tax Issue Almost Instantly
Johan resolved an issue for me that would have taken me hours if not days of phone and email. I was active duty military while living in Calif., so I should not have been taxed by the state as my residency was Fla., but some wires were crossed. Years later, Calif. sent me a tax bill. Even though it was a small issue, Johan helped me resolve it. He consulted with me, then spoke to the tax board and explained the situation. Johan resolved the situation in about two business days, then went above and beyond to provide me with more information on how to ameliorate future situations like this. I was very impressed with his work. He helped me with something that was a big deal to me, and his work gave me peace of mind. Additionally, his fee was very reasonable. He did a great job, and I recommend him to future clients!
