Here’s a Resolution for ’08: No More Tax Problems

Facing an ever more aggressive Internal Revenue Service, Americans with tax debts should start 2008 with a fresh start and finally get rid of their looming tax problem(s).

Are you asking yourself … If i have tax problems who should I contact?

In case you hadn’t noticed, the taxman is after you.

2005 proved to be a year of records for the Internal Revenue Service. America’s tax-collecting agency collected $48.7 billion in enforcement revenue — the highest amount in 10 years. What’s more, audits of individual taxpayers increased 6 percent in 2006.

If you’re one of the thousands of Americans who is concealing income or owes the IRS back taxes, you’re running out of time.

And fast.

“We have put more emphasis on enforcement,” said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson in a recent statement.

And with that extra effort on enforcement come jail sentences. The sentences are hard time in the Big House.

To date:

66 months — The amount of jail time Charles Sigerseth, 66, of Sacramento, Calif., received for cheating on his taxes and using an illegal trust to conceal income.

46 months — The amount of jail time Frank Kolk, 50, of Las Vegas, received for defrauding his company and concealing $1.3 million in taxes from the IRS.

21 months — The amount of jail time Seth Bryant, 21, of Wichita, Kan., received for filing a false tax return that fraudulently claimed a $5,160 refund.

15 months — The amount of jail time Nigerian national Robert O. Emojevwe, 54, received for making 46 false claims to the IRS while living in Dothan, Ala.

5 months — The amount of jail time Scot J. Seaman, 33, of Wildwood, Mo., received for failing to file income tax returns for the years 1998 to 2002, creating a tax loss of $73,141.

Need additional evidence that the Internal Revenue Service is on a mission to prosecute tax cheaters far and wide?

Since taking the top job at the IRS, once the butt of jokes for its ineffective tax-collection activities, Commissioner Everson has turned the agency around and rehabilitated its image.

Last year, for example, audits of individuals with income of $1 million and higher increased 33 percent while audits of individuals with incomes over $100,000 jumped 18 percent.

If you have a large tax debt or if you have evaded income taxes using one of the many popular but ineffective and illegal schemes, you should be losing sleep.


Because all the evidence suggests the IRS wants you. But the IRS has consistently offered leniency to tax cheats who come forward. You should consider a new New Year’s Resolution: Eliminate your tax problems.

Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
