JLG TaxHelp

JLG Tax Resolution is a full service tax debt negotiation and resolution company serving individual taxpayers, corporations, and small businesses. We specialize in resolving your IRS tax problems. Our main focus is helping people regain their lives by eliminating the IRS tax problems that plague them. We have the skills and experience to “fix” the problem, and in most cases, once we begin our representation, you won’t even have to talk to the IRS – we handle it all.

We live in the community and we work with many local professionals as well as clients nationwide to resolve any and all IRS tax problems – quickly, efficiently and permanently. We’ve worked hard to earn our excellent reputation and we live by it. We’re not one of those “800” number firms that take your money and deliver little or nothing. We consider ourselves to be the “Rescue Squad for Troubled Taxpayers” – and we take our job very seriously.

We offer you a clear understanding of the process for resolving your tax problems and realistic expectations as to probable outcomes. We will negotiate the lowest possible IRS payment amount allowed by law. If we can’t help you, we will tell you that. The IRS has very strict guidelines for eligibility – we evaluate your situation and let you know BEFORE you hire us, what tax resolution solutions are available and what our flat-fee for those services will be. We have payment plans available.

If you (or anyone you know) are experiencing an IRS tax problem, call us to schedule a FREE consultation to discuss your problem. We will answer your questions, explain your options, and suggest solutions to permanently resolve the problem. There is a way to get your life back – and we can help make that happen.
