Are you in trouble with the IRS and don’t know where to turn? Even if you are not a current client, Stitely and Karstetter (S&K) can help! The firm recently announced the opening of its new Tax Resolution Services division in response to a growing need for assistance with federal and state tax issues.

“We have always offered tax resolution services to existing accounting clients,” explained Frank Stitely, S&K Member/Partner. “Now, we are extending our offering to anyone in the community who needs tax assistance or help communicating with the IRS.”

S&K Tax Resolution Services include:
• Tax return audit support
• Representation in tax court
• Fee mitigation
• Correcting misinformation on tax returns
• Working with the IRS regarding unpaid payroll taxes
• Negotiating with the IRS on a client’s behalf
• Generating installment agreements
• Generating a compromise with the IRS
• Resolving issues related to tax refunds that are owed to you
• And more!

“Although we have offered tax resolution since 1989 to existing clients, we have been unable to devote resources year-round to these services during busy times, particularly tax season,” added Michelle Hecker, S&K Member/Partner. “We now are dedicating resources to tax resolution year-round so that we can assist anyone who is in trouble with the IRS.”

S&K offers a complimentary consultation to anyone experiencing tax issues. If the accounting experts feel they can assist, an up-front retainer will secure the firm’s dedicated assistance.

“Similar to working with a law firm, the retainer covers the time-intensive work we will complete on the client’s behalf, including multiple phone calls to the IRS, research, representation, and more,” Stitely said.

S&K’s advice to people who are experiencing tax trouble? Go with a well-established, reputable firm with proven results. Stitely warns that some firms that aren’t tax preparation companies or CPAs tout that they can resolve tax issues.

“We have heard from clients that they paid some of these companies a great deal of money and never heard from them again,” he said. “You will absolutely hear from us. If you hire us, we will help you.”

S&K offers a secure portal for clients to upload documents, communicate with the team, and access information.
