Most local CPAs and tax lawyers do not have the experience of representing clients in front of the IRS on a daily basis. Many so-called tax attorneys are heavily involved in more practice areas such as estate law, family law, personal injury, civil law and bankruptcy.
CPAs devote much of their time to accounting/bookkeeping, preparing tax returns and financial statements for tax relief. Tax attorneys usually do not prepare tax returns and farm the work out to a CPA for extra fees. When a legal or criminal issue arises, the CPA will refer you to a tax lawyer for extra fees. Local CPAs are usually timid about representing you because the IRS may retaliate against their existing clientele who usually do not have IRS problems. When you meet with either a local attorney or CPA, he or she typically has you sign a lengthy retainer agreement without giving you a chance to take it home to read. These retainer agreements often start off with a small retainer and an hourly fee of $300 to $400, which can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars, charging you 30 minutes of time to merely send a fax.

Here is an example of how JG Associates has helped thousands of clients
Jan came to JG Associates in 2016 with a plethora of IRS-related issues, but was only aware of her five unfiled 1040 tax returns. They also found that Jan also had over $98,000 in payroll debt for a company she closed in 2013. JG Associates was able to complete all five tax returns for Jan and resolve both the personal and business debt under the same payment agreement of only $233 a month.
I searched long and hard for a firm that could help me with 8 years of unfiled tax returns and $88,000 owed to the IRS in civil penalties. I was so happy when I found JG Associates online. They were able to complete all my tax returns in just one day. They got me into a payment plan for the total amount that I owed for a mere $147 a month. JG Associates saved life!
The IRS audited my 2014-2015 tax returns and said I owed them $145,000. I have never been audited before and my documents to support my tax returns were scattered all over my house. Thankfully, JG Associates helped me recreate my books and organize all my documentation before fighting my case with the IRS. Both audits were closed and I ended up getting a $587 refund in return! JG Associates is the best.
