What is Tax Resolution?
Tax resolution is an area of the law dealing with several types of tax related matters, typically in which a person or business owes taxes to their state or the IRS. These areas include tax audits, missing returns, tax liens, tax levies, IRS installment agreements, tax penalty abatement, wage garnishments and complex business tax issues. Review our tax issues page for more information regarding these issues.
Why do I need a Tax Resolution Professional?
Some people or businesses may find it difficult due to their current financial situation to pay their taxes to the IRS or State. A tax resolution professional can help set up payment plans or even reduce the amount of taxes owed to help alleviate the stress on the individual while placating the government.

Why should I choose Emerge180 W.M.A.?
Nearly 75% of our clients have had previous representation and that is because those of us at Emerge180 W.M.A. strive to make the most effective decisions regarding our client’s tax issues, saving time and money for our clients. We want to help people and their businesses with our tax resolution services as quickly and efficiently as possible. Many other companies have a catchy sales pitch that may initially garner them a lot of business but they lose their clients over time because they fail to bring the results that they promised. We can change that to “Another benefit of working with E180 W.M.A. is that you will only get solutions to your tax problems from a representative authorized directly by the IRS to represent clients on tax matters who has ACTUAL experience handling cases, rather than just some commissioned salesperson who has never helped a client and will say anything to close a deal.

I am too busy during most business hours to go to a consultation. Can I do it over the phone?
Almost always. Here at Emerge180 W.M.A. we strive to make this as easy as a process as we can.
What kind of information should I have ready for the consultation?
General information about your tax problem: how much do you owe, who do you owe, what kind of tax is it and general information about your current financial situation.
What is the average time to close a case?
Each case is handled based on its individual circumstances and each clients’ specific needs, so time handling a case can vary from weeks to months. For an average case in which $50,000 or less is owed, settling your tax problem can occur within two weeks. For more complex tax issues or settlements, this time frame can turn into months. Contact one of our tax resolution professionals for a more accurate closing time for your case.
If the average for your company is within 2 weeks, why do your competitor’s take months?
Most big companies are not incentivized to close your case. In fact, taking longer can allow them to bill you more unnecessarily. We didn’t get into the business to take money from people who don’t have it; we truly entered tax resolution to help people and help businesses survive.
What are the special lien programs I have heard advertised by other tax resolution companies? Does Emerge180 W.M.A. use these programs too?
