Occasionally, due to circumstances beyond the control of a taxpayer, a taxpayer cannot become eligible for any conventional tax resolution strategy (e.g. Offer in Compromise, Installment Agreement, Penalty Abatement, etc.).  While other tax professionals scratch their heads or unsuccessfully attempt a conventional strategy, our attorneys welcome the challenge.

No matter how bad your situation may seem, the odds are very high that our attorneys have faced a similar situation before.  By way of debt restructuring, corporate restructuring, and/or a combination of appeals, proposals, and negotiations, our attorneys will go the distance to find a solution to your tax problem.

My Fortress attorney was far better suited for dealing with a back tax problem than my CPA. I was provided with relief immediately, and was surprised how they made the process so painless."

These “creative solutions” will be individually tailored to address your specific situation.  As you might imagine, these strategies can get quite complicated.  Consequently, it is not possible to give a comprehensive description of the possible strategies that we might recommend within the limited parameters of this website.

If your situation requires a “creative solution,” our caring staff will walk you through it step by step, no matter how complicated and challenging it may be.

Attorneys vs Accountants
Which is Best for You?

Resolving your tax debt typically has very little to do with accounting, and everything to do with building and presenting a strong case.

Most CPA’s have very little experience, if any, resolving back taxes. Our attorneys do nothing but resolve back taxes, day in and day out.

Negotiation and persuasive skills, not number-crunching skills, get the best results when it comes to resolving back taxes.
