Information about The Tax Resolution Company
The Tax Resolution Company saved my life. After
a long downward financial and personal spiral, I was facing huge IRS overdue
payments, fines, fees and penalties. I
really didn't think I could go on with this weight on my shoulders.
"When I received the notice from the IRS due to not filing properly I was truly overwhelmed and totally stressed out. I called several so called tax resolution companies that stated they were not interested in helping you with your problems with the IRS if you did not owe large amounts of money, so when you talked to them they just dismissed you or made you feel like an idiot. I tried to deal with IRS directly and that was impossible and very frustrating.
I found TRC and on the first call I spoke directly with Mike Wellman and the first thing he did was reassure me that we would work this out. That is exactly what he did. All I had to do was give him all the details and let him do his job…and I slept that night for the first time since I had receive that notice. Mike did all the work and in end he reduced the liability by more than half and helped me set up a payment plan that was fair and manageable for me to maintain my life. Most importantly Mike never made me feel like I was in this alone. He also took away that feeling that I really had done something so very wrong.
I hope I never need this type of service again but if I do I know exactly where I would go … I will always be very grateful to him for taking the stress of this situation and getting me through it. Thanks Mike."

"If you are an American living overseas, be sure to keep things up to date with the IRS. File yearly, even if you think no taxes are due. If you haven't filed in awhile, however, and suddenly find yourself in trouble, then the person to go to is Mike Wellman at The Tax Resolution Company.
After living abroad more than a decade, I discovered the IRS had placed an internal assessment on me in the 1990s which had gathered fines and interest and was up over $100,000. Given my income, this was an impossible burden. Mike Wellman pursued my case step by step and finally managed to help me demonstrate to the IRS that I actually owed them less than $1,000. What's more, over the months I've been his client his fees have been eminently reasonable.
It may take some time to straighten things out, and certainly not all cases can end as well as mine has, but if you've got something to clear up with the IRS, Mike Wellman gets my highest recommendation."

"I would like to take this opportunity in sending my gratitude for the services you have provided to my family. Please let this letter stand as a fully endorsed recommendation to anyone struggling with the IRS.
As you are aware, this debt was related to a past business we owned that came to an abrupt ending in 2003. For four complete years I tried to handle the situation (tax burden) by being very open with the revenue officers and agents of the Internal Revenue Service about past and current earnings. I answered every phone call and replied to letters requesting me to make contact with the IRS as soon as possible. The amount of stress this placed on my family was reaching an unbearable breaking point. We could do nothing because we lived in fear and my wife did think I would go to jail because we could not pay. You helped change her mind…
To my dismay, the IRS did not share our openness and we consistently received notices and met the “not so nice” side of the IRS. We had one Revenue Officer tell us they would withhold placing a levy and 30 day Notice to Pay if I could come up with an Offer in Compromise within a two week period. I did research on “How to Prepare an OIC” from the irs.gov website. We sent all the required paperwork in and to my surprise, we received notice that the IRS was to go through with the 30 day notice and levy. This after they stated they would hold off. It was then I understood I needed help and reached out to Mr. Mike Wellman and TRC team.
We contacted TRC in May of 2007. Mike took me through every aspect of the Offer in Compromise process, timeline to close and all fee’s associated. He convinced me he would fight on our behalf. There was never a time we felt we were being taken by yet another IRS resolution company. Mr. Wellman and the team of TRC were able to successfully take a $350k+ business tax burden and compromise it for exactly $12,964.00 with payments. This is less than .10 on the dollar.
My family has now been able to take the much needed “deep breath”. TRC has extremely reasonable fees based upon the service requested. Do not take to much time in deciding if you should handle your own tax burden with the IRS. Locate TRC and let them be your official problem solver."

"Before I talked to Mike I was stressed out. I knew I owed taxes and the IRS had just sent a notice to levy my pay from work. I looked on line for a solution but, I started reading horror stories about another tax resolution company. I was a little apprehensive but I decided to give TRC a try. When I called, I spoke directly to Mike. Mike assured me that this problem could be resolved very quickly. Indeed, in less than 24hrs. Mike had the levy lifted and an installment agreement in place. Thank you again Mike for resolving a very stressful situation. I would recommend anyone with tax issues to use TRC."
Jim B. - Columbia, PA
"I tried to negotiate with the IRS myself at first. I offered $13,920 on a $70K total debt and the IRS response was that I could afford to pay the entire amount over time and therefore they tried to reject my offer totally. Realizing that my lack of knowledge of the rules was allowing the IRS to basically make up the rules, I did some research and found Mike Wellman.
He got involved and quickly forced the IRS to accept additional information from me showing that my offer was indeed within my reasonable capabilities to pay. He went on to spend some amount of time negotiating the matter with them and ultimately got final IRS agreement for a lump sum payment of $6500 to settle it in full. Good job!"

"In 2004 I was notified by the IRS that I owed over $50,000 in past due payroll taxes - which had been unfairly assessed against me. I interviewed countless CPA's, enrolled agents, and these high-pressure self-proclaimed tax specialists. Most CPA’s rolled their eyes and told me to pay the taxes, interest, and fines. Most enrolled agents wanted me to do an “offer in compromise”. Most high-pressure self-proclaimed tax specialists were transparently and obviously running a hustle. Nobody seemed to get the basic and fundamental concept of my defense: I did not owe these taxes.
One “Enrolled Agent” who will remain nameless had been on TV and who was quoted in a couple of newspapers appeared to be legitimate and seemed to have some good ideas on how to defend myself from this incorrect claim by the IRS. However once I paid the substantial three thousand dollar advance – my case was assigned to one of his coworkers who didn’t follow any of his boss’s ideas or do anything. I would call – review all the details – send paperwork and nothing would happen. The letters from the IRS started coming again; the IRS levied my bank accounts and started to conduct an audit review.
"The only reason that I am still here breathing, and with my family is because of all Mike has done for me. He went the extra mile, and for that I will forever be indebted to him. I will never be able to say thank you enough for for his kindness, his intelligence and the strength that he has given us to go on."
Henriette B. - Oceanside, CA
"When I first contacted Mike, he set me at ease. My blood pressure went down and I was able to sleep at night. It is a good feeling knowing he could help me resolve my issues as quickly and diligently as he did. God bless him and his practice."
Chester F. - Woburn, MA
"The IRS wouldn't listen to me or accept my offer to pay. Mike Wellman took my case and had my tax liability declared "uncollectible" in only 5 days. He is very affordable. He is often times available by phone and he has always returned my calls. You'll get great results when Mike takes over."
Charles J. - Prescott, AZ
"Mike Wellman helped me settle my tax liability for less than 9 cents on the dollar. I have a new lease on life. I highly recommend Mike to handle any IRS problems you might have."
