We had the worst of the stereotypical auditors. We'd been dealing with her for three years until the firm with whom we had been dealing missed an appointment. They told us it was all over, we would have to pay $30K+. Bill Hartsock got us a new appointment with a new auditor After Bill met with them, we owed the IRS NOTHING!!

I am most impressed by Bill's relentless drive to make happy customers and he is aggressive. He tends to understate what he can deliver, so I checked with him frequently in the initial a couple of months. After he won the first round with IRS perfectly, I was really impressed, but felt that we were probably a little bit lucky. Quickly, he won the second round, again perfectly. Then I just forgot about my IRS audit all together: I did not contact him and did not even think about it at all, just waiting to receive monthly bill from him and pay it, I was 100% assured that my case was in capable hands. I slipped so far on this slope that I even forgot to return his call on monthly status update. Why should I care? Bill is handling it! Then all of a sudden, my audit is over: I owe IRS not a penny.
By the way, his staff, Sherry and Thida, in particular, are nice and caring. After I handed them a tone of my tax documents, I was expecting that Sherry would sit down with me to decipher them, but she did it without a single question.
