Expert, affordable tax law help
I retained Arnold Van Dyk to help with a tax problem and he was able to bring the IRS from a request for close to $10k in back taxes to under $200.

Arnold Gave Us A Fresh Start! Thank You!!!
Arnold is a true professional. After having a decade's long IRS tax issue, once I hired Arnold, I knew he was different than the other attorneys I've employed in the past for other matters. He's attentive, responsive, and very carefully guide you through whatever your tax issue is. I turned to him in an attempt to complete an IRS offer in compromise. He methodically walked me through the process, he explained to me what he needed from me, and then went to work. While my particular case had some complications, he was very knowledgeable about all of the factors that could impact my case, both from a legal stance as well as an IRS negotiation strategy. Once he had what he needed from me, he completed everything we needed to get the process started more quickly than I could have ever thought possible. Once we submitted our documentation, he stayed in contact with both myself and the IRS officers assigned to my case, and I received regular updates as to what was happening, and what to expect next. Throughout this extremely difficult process, Arnold did everything he could to make it manageable. Had my offer not been accepted, while I would have been disappointed, I still would have nothing but praise for Arnold. It was accepted, and I was able to finally put an end to years of worry and settle this massive burden for less than $.02 on the dollar. With Arnold's assistance, my family and I can have a fresh start. I can honestly say that calling Arnold for help was the best call I've ever made in my entire life. Thank you!
