BBB Rating A+
As my team and I enter our 18th year in practice we can look back proudly on attaining the prestigious A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Few attorney’s in the tough specialty of tax law with as many cases as we handle can make that claim.
What my clients are saying
Listed below are testimonial letters from happy clients who have benefited from our professional legal services.
My team and I work hard for our clients. We are proud of our work. Our goal as a professional tax attorney’s office is to get you the best result we can, but we cannot guarantee what your specific outcome will be. For example, because every tax case has its own unique facts, we cannot guarantee that we can obtain an offer in compromise, or lift a tax lien. If any “professional” firm appears to guarantee that they can obtain a specific result for you, I’d suggest you run away from them very fast.

(Client’s IRS tax debt of $22,000 was settled for $2,900 payable over 24 months at NO interest)
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for helping me with my tax issues. Your assistance has removed the considerable stress associated with trying to communicate reasonable with the IRS.
As you know, I had accrued more than $22,000 in back taxes, interest and penalties. My health was deteriorating and my ability to work was limited. To believe there was a way, or even someone to help with this problem was waning away. I read about your services and quickly contacted your office. Your staff immediately went out of there way to answer my questions and make me feel as ease. Your call to me was reassuring that I had an opportunity to negotiate a reasonable settlement and stop the constant threat of financial ruin.
I especially want to commend Mr. Smith of your office for his understanding and commitment. He was very precise about the efforts ahead and willing to explain and answer any questions in the day-to-day activities of your process.
I would strongly recommend your services to anyone needing help with tax or other issues relating to the IRS. Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference.
(Client owed $112,000 to the IRS)
I just wanted to write a letter thanking all of you for the fantastic job done on my account.
A little over two months ago I thought the IRS was going to stop my financial recovery dead in the tracks and put me in an untenable position.
However, with the good news that [you] delivered yesterday regarding the installment agreement, not only can I recover from my 2003 financial meltdown, but I can now go about building my business and rebuilding my life!
I wanted ya’ll to know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
Thank you so very much.
Thank you so much for all of your help so far. Please let me know as soon as you need more $. I will be sending another $1,000.00 next week sometime. Thanks again. You guys have made my life bearable right now.
Your guidance thus far has been invaluable. I appreciate the time and effort the both of you have put toward my case.
($105,000 TAX DEBT WAS SETTLED FOR $5,148 PAYABLE OVER 24 MONTHS AT NO INTEREST)
I wanted to thank you and your staff for all the long hours you put into get us a settlement. (Its) not funny owing over $105,000 in back taxes. I had no idea what to do – I couldn’t eat or sleep… I needed help. My son told me to call you, and I’m so glad I did.
With a lot of hard work and hours on our taxes – you did it. I could hardly believe my eyes, but there it was – in black and white. We now owe so little.
Mr. Fouts, what can I do or say to let you know how much we appreciate you.
(This Client, an older, disabled lady, later sent my office an extra $50.00 and requested that my staff and I have lunch on her.)

Your knowledge and experience helped us to understand and deal with our complicated situation. You helped make a difficult situation proceed smoothly. The outcome was better than we expected.

Thank you so much for listening to me last week… I’m sending you a FedEx package that includes the forms… and also 2 checks one… for $500 and another for $1,000… thanks again and looking forward to fix my IRS problem once and for real.
Thank you so much for taking our case! We look forward to getting this difficult part of our past out of the way. Please let us know if there is anything further that you need.
I would like to express my gratitude for your services in regards my IRS case. You have relieved such a heavy pressure emotionally and physically. Your acute attention within the past eight months compared to my eleven-year journey was unbelievable.
I went through a lot of personal appointments, phone calls, follow up with many different representatives, I got a lot around, frustrations, no answers, and dead ends and finally you came along.
My decision was made back in December 2003 when I got the letter with a debt of $30,000 to the IRS and started to research for help and I came across your name in the Internet. Your credentials attracted me for the record of cases that you have had a positive outcome. The outcome of my case confirms what I read about you. Thank you.
Last week you made me the happiest woman on earth and brought tears of happiness and joy. I feel like I can start a new life with a new record, since my credit is like my integrity.
I am truly grateful for what you accomplished for me.
Once again thank you very much.

(a staff member) was wonderful to work with.
I sincerely hope all is well with you and your family… Once again I am
I just received your refund check (our refund to him of the unearned
portion of his retainer) in the mail and want to thank you for it. I can’t
tell you how good it feels to have this burden lifted.
You and your staff did everything they could to be helpful and courteous
each and every time I visited with them. Your office truly does amazing
work and I would refer anyone I know to you.
I was never sure I would be out from under this dilemma in my life time and
the worry and stress was beginning to get me down. Now I know I will always
stay current with the IRS and can plan my future without this hanging over
my head. Again many thanks to you and your staff for your representation.
(Client’s IRS tax debt of $20,000 was settled for $500)
Thank you for all your hard work in helping us… With the settlement concerning the IRS. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that instead of $20,000 we are able to settle with them for $500. I will highly recommend you to anyone who has tax issues that need to be taken care of.
Thank you again for all you have done.
Former Building Sub-Contractor
(Client’s $50,495 tax debt was settled for $8,580 – payable over 24 months at NO interest)
I just cannot thank you enough for getting me out of the situation I was in. I wish there was a way to let everyone with similar problems know that they should come to you for help and not waste thousands of dollars like I did in my initial attempt to do an Offer in Compromise.
I owed over $40,000 and saw an ad for **** ( name deleted) and responded. They said they would take care of everything after I paid them through bank drafts for a year ($340 a month; total of almost $4000). After having paid them, I kept calling and inquiring; and getting the runaround and waited until almost 2 years later when I ended up with a tax lien on my paycheck taking $1000 out of $1200 to pay the garnishment. I almost had a stroke! Upon calling *** (name deleted) daily for the next week; I realized I was getting nowhere; same as I got from them ever since they had been paid…. Next time someone asks you about *** (name deleted), tell them to call me it will save them thousands of dollars…. Hindsight is twenty-twenty; my God how I wish I had come to you first!
I don’t know if you remember when I first called you, but I was seriously suicidal. I mean that in the exact definition of the word. You were my last hope. I knew what a bad situation I had gotten myself into, but after the *** (name deleted) fiasco; I thought I was doomed. Being a Christian and an honorable man, you talked me through what I should do; you told me what I should say when calling my payroll department and when calling the IRS to give us a little time where the garnishments would stop. Very quick easy advice before I had even paid you a dime. Why couldn’t *** (name deleted) have even done something like that? Simple answer… It’s because they don’t care.
Anyways, to make a long story short (at least shorter); you charged less money than most attorneys, you worked on my case while I was still paying you, you kept me informed on what you were doing; you gave me strategies that helped immensely on the offer, your entire office staff was great every time I called or they called me; and eventually we settled with the IRS for $8500.00 instead of the initial $40,000+ I had owed. I even have two years to pay off the $8500. I am forever grateful; and only wish that everyone out there who has contacted *** (name deleted) knew the truth about them and could find you before they get taken by those crooks the way I was.
(We had the IRS remove $32,795 in tax, interest & penalties for Client after an audit appeal)
On behalf of my husband and me, I would like to thank you for the outcome that was achieved by your representation concerning our situation with the Internal Revenue Service.
I really felt backed into a corner prior to retaining you as counsel… Fortunately, however, it did not take long to grasp that you possessed the knowledge, skills, and guidance necessary to represent our case wholeheartedly.
Issues that had been disputed were discussed and resolved quickly and favorable… If you ever need a letter of referral you may use my name. I would highly recommend you to anyone who has the IRS breathing down their throat.
…I would like to thank you and your staff for your professionalism in advance for your assistance on helping me resolve these matters.

Just want to let you know how much I appreciated your counsel last week. Although at times things have looked very bleak it is a tremendous encouragement to know that we have friends like you & Laura to stand in the gap. You are a credit to your profession. May God bless you richly and continually.

I couldn’t have done it without you. Once again, thanks for all your hard work.
(Client’s $6,368 tax debt, settled for $634 payable over 24 months)
Dear Mr. Fouts, Nancy, Frances and all the staff at the office,
Thank you for handling our case for the last two years. In spite of the length and complexity of our case, you stayed with us and gave your very best consideration to it. You have our deepest gratitude for that!!
While all (underlined in original letter) of the staff have been extremely professional and friendly, Frances especially has been thoughtful and sensitive to all our questions and concerns. We couldn’t have managed the IRS roller coaster ride without her!
We want to think you for negotiating the Offer in Compromise for Wynn’s account and for the installment agreement for Mark’s account.
May the Lord bless you all(underlined in original letter) in your work and personal lives!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for helping me with my tax issues. Your staff has been courteous and helpful. Especially Brandi.
It is such a relief knowing that we settled for $15,421 instead of the original tax liability of $89,645.
Thank you again for helping me settle a difficult and stressful situation.
(Brandi, you deserve a raise just for dealing with me & my questions.)
This is just a note to thank you and your very efficient staff for all the terrific work you did on my behalf to solve my major IRS problem. I was a contractor that owed IRS taxes and penalties that amounted to over $450,000.
After two years of work on your part and your office staff I settled an Offer In Compromise for $6,432 payable in 90 days. Having settled this matter and paid the amount due, I would like to highly recommend your office to anyone faced with a similar problem. Again, a mighty thank you is in order to you and your staff in solving my problem.
I want to thank you for your help. Because of you, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel… I think I will recover from this in the upcoming months. Again, thank you for your help.
Very professional and efficient service.
Please consider Jeff Fouts for your tax attorney to help you overcome tax debts and reduce your tax debt with the IRS.
