Tax Help Guide – Resources on Tax Resolution

The following guides are both to help guide you through the IRS collection process and assist our existing clients to understand more about the process. We will continue to update this page as more information is made available. Please note that the IRS or other agencies may update forms after a guide has been created. We try to keep up to date as much as possible, but it’s worth checking if new forms came out for your particular situation.

If you have a tax relief question, post it on the comment section of the appropriate post or on the related video on our YouTube channelIf your question does not fit one of the categories and you are unsure, comment on this post here.

This guide is not legal advice nor does it form an attorney-client relationship. Don’t want to do it yourself? Click to get help from expert attorneys.
