We Train Rescue Squads for Troubled Taxpayers
Since the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers was founded 13 years ago we have trained thousands of tax professionals on how to represent troubled taxpayers before the IRS. In that same time we have over built a community of over 1000 members that have dedicated themselves to becoming tax resolution experts.

You may be familiar with the high, year round, fees associated with tax problem cases ($3,000 - $5,000 on average). However, in order to command these high fees you need to first learn a new skill.
Let’s be clear: Tax resolution is far from a "get rich quick scheme" in order to truly incorporate it into your business you will be required to invest both time and money.
The good news is that you could attend an ASTPS Technical Boot Camp, get a membership in ASTPS for support, and get a year subscription in one of the industry’s leading case software for less than what you could make on just one case!
So it all comes down to your ability and willingness to put in the time to develop the skills necessary to solve tax problem cases. We know that time is often a sole practitioners most valuable resource. That’s why we created the Rescue Squad Online Tax Resolution Course.
Who was this Course Created For?
The Rescue Squad Online Tax Resolution Course is a perfect fit for both brand new and experienced practitioners that are looking for in-depth IRS Representation training without having to travel.
New practitioners will be able to get up to speed quickly with our easy to consume 30 minute modules, and experienced practitioners will get a great refresher on the fundamentals of tax resolution.
This course is also perfect for practitioners that want to train staff members without having to spend money on travel, food, and lodging.
