3rd year in a row I’ve been here and every year I learn a little more, and understand the material more. It’s great!

Robert Lewin, EA


You’re probably tired of wasting today chasing the fees you earned yesterday. A great benefit of tax resolution work is tax resolution fees are typically paid in advance. This ends the receivable collection problem.

You might be asking yourself – How is someone with tax problems going to pay my high fees? At the IRS Tax Problem Resolution Boot Camp you will learn how to quote these fees and get the IRS to cover them!
