Like most people having to deal with the IRS, I was terrified. As a last resort I consulted craigslist one evening and found a name and number of someone I didn’t know and had very little faith in their ability to help me.
I was pleasantly surprised to find an IRS (EA) Enrolled Agent which meant she spoke their language, but was on my side.
She stood up for me, negotiated a settlement, and established a payment plan that I could manage. I am now in complete compliance tax-wise and I met a new friend with tax super powers, and her fees are more than reasonable.
If you are having any tax issues, do yourselves a favor, get yourself a tax superhero.
