If you are a business owner struggling with expenses, enforcement could cause the demise of the business that you have worked so hard to build.  If you are an individual, enforcement could eliminate your ability to provide the basics for yourself and your family.

In addition to these ramifications, if an Installment Agreement is defaulted, the government will be less inclined to agree to another Installment Agreement in the future.  Therefore, it is extremely important to get the Installment Agreement done properly on the first try.

Our staff has extensive experience in negotiating Installment Agreements and assisting taxpayers with the paperwork that is necessary for obtaining an Installment Agreement.  We can assure you that we will NOT set you up for failure by agreeing to monthly payments that you cannot afford.

"I thought I would be better off with local representation, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. After trying multiple ‘reputable’ local attorneys, I had gotten nowhere. This changed immediately when I engaged Fortress. Their professionalism was superior and they got the job done far more quickly than I expected.

After we negotiate a manageable Installment Agreement on your behalf, we will stay by your side and protect you from default.  We understand that unexpected expenses may “pop up” in the future and that there may be a month or two in which it is difficult or impossible to make your installment payment.  Rather than defaulting your Installment Agreement and exacerbating your tax problem, simply give us a call before your payment is due.  Chances are, we can negotiate an extension for your payment or even make arrangements for you to “skip a month” without having your Installment Agreement default.

Attorneys vs Accountants
Which is Best for You?

Resolving your tax debt typically has very little to do with accounting, and everything to do with building and presenting a strong case.

Most CPA’s have very little experience, if any, resolving back taxes. Our attorneys do nothing but resolve back taxes, day in and day out.

Negotiation and persuasive skills, not number-crunching skills, get the best results when it comes to resolving back taxes.
