I received a Federal tax notice in 2014 stating that I owed over $46,000 in back taxes, penalties and interest. I decided to call the IRS and set a payment plan myself which I realized was a big mistake after three months. The interest I was being charged was more than my monthly payments. I decided it would be best if I hired an Attorney to speak on my behalf. I first called Optima Tax Relief from the radio commercials. After two minutes on the phone with one of their representatives, I knew I was wasting my time. I then called the offices of a few local Attorneys in the DMV area and I was immediately greeted by a receptionist. The receptionist would ask me various questions before attempting to schedule a date and time for me to meet with an Attorney. I began to get discouraged because I felt like I was just repeating my self over and over to people who couldn’t help me. My last call was to Mehdiyoun Law Firm and I was very shocked when Attorney Kamyar Mehdiyoun answered the phone personally. Our conversation started immediately with a free consultation. The next step was a face to face meeting to explain IRS procedures and a plan to file an Offer of Compromise on my behalf to reduce my tax debt. The Offer of Compromise was files in October 2014 and it requested that my tax debt be reduced to $1,200 based on the information my Attorney filed on my behalf. The IRS notified me a year and one month later that my Offer of Compromise was sent for review. I got my final IRS notice in February 2016 informing me that the Offer of Compromise filed on my behalf was accepted. My tax debt was reduced from over $46,000 to $1,200 and it would not have happened if I didn’t make that last call to Mehdiyoun Law Firm.
