About Mark Riddle
I have more than twenty years in the tax compliance and tax problem resolution businesses. My clients have been delighted with the results of my negotiations with IRS and state tax authorities. I've even had to represent my own business in a payroll tax dispute with IRS (spoiler alert...I won).
I've had a client pay IRS zero on a $70,000 income tax liability which the IRS wrote off, because I knew how to use the tax laws to his advantage. Paying nothing is not usually the case, but it does happen. It's all in knowing how to help based on the client's circumstances.
If I could give someone in tax trouble my best advice after all these years and cases, it would be to call a tax professional early. Waiting or ignoring tax collection efforts never helps the situation, but it can surely limit the debt settlement choices.
