Tax debt settlement help – get reliable tax relief

If you find yourself unable to comprehend the complexities of paying off your tax debts, then you need to get tax debt settlement help from a tax expert. Tax debt relief settlement help entails finding an experienced enrolled agent who is a tax relief expert to help you come up with the best solution for your tax problem. There are many tax negotiation companies these days offering tax debt settlement help that many people are inclined to believe that these firms are tax relief scams. Truth be told, it only takes the right choice of tax debt settlement company, enrolled agent or tax advisor to help you with your tax problem.

About tax debt settlement

Before you seek tax debt settlement help, you have to understand what tax debt settlement is. Tax debt settlement, oftentimes known as tax debt relief or tax debt negotiation, is negotiated by your tax representative, also known as power of attorney, effort to reduce your tax debt where the tax agency, or in many cases, the IRS, Internal Revenue Service, and the taxpayer agree on a calculated reduced balance that will then regard the tax debt as paid in full.

Taxpayers can negotiate for their own tax settlement terms by communicating directly with the IRS. Alternatively, they can also seek the assistance of an experienced tax relief expert who is an enrolled agent that is licensed by the IRS to help them out. Many tax relief companies that advertise heavily on TV and the internet claim that they are “tax attorneys”, and if you check their website, they do not mention anything about their unknown tax attorney, nor do they mention their licensed representative bio (biography), qualification or background. See our beware report to avoid scams. ALWAYS speak with the licensed power of attorney who will negotiate on your behalf, never speak with an unlicensed sales representative who claims that he or she is a tax consultant.

How settlement works

Essentially, getting tax debt settlement help entails you to work with a reliable tax relief company that negotiates with the IRS for you the best possible payment terms based on your financial condition. The aim of the tax settlement company is to resolve your tax debt and for you to be able to afford the tax payment that will suit your financial situation.

The first step

When it comes to effectuating a tax debt settlement, our firm starts by reviewing and analyzing your tax debt and your financial ability to pay off your tax debts. We go over the entries on your income tax return to find out if you’re eligible for certain refunds and make sure that the return is accurate, or if needed amended and revised accordingly. In many cases were the taxpayer did not file their tax return for many back years, we directly obtain from the IRS, all the needed W2’s, 1099’s, 1098’s etc to accurately prepare all the unfiled tax returns as well. From there, we will coordinate with the IRS to put a hold on your account, or release a tax levy on your wages or bank account, we then negotiate with the IRS your settlement based on your financial condition and finally reach an agreement that the taxpayer can afford and can live with. While we’re representing you, the IRS will cease and hold all collection efforts for a specified duration so we can assess and resolve your tax matter.


It is important to note that taxpayers can represent themselves, and attempt to negotiate a tax debt settlement on their own without the need for a licensed tax professional, power of attorney. In dealing with tax problems on your own, timing is key. The good news is that the IRS is usually more accommodating of taxpayers who are actively coordinating with them to pay their mounting tax debt. The agency is also bound by certain statutes and regulations that require it to approve certain requests for tax debt relief so long as certain criteria are fulfilled.

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.
