  • IRS Offers in Compromise Statistics
  • December 16, 2016
  • The Alexander Law Firm has a tremendous track record when it comes to IRS offers in compromise. The acceptance rate on offers filed by the firm is 76.47%.

    This rate is nearly double the IRS average acceptance rate of 40.29% (see 2015 IRS Data Book, Table 16).

    Here is another amazing stat – on average, our clients pay only 6.72% of the amount they owe the IRS ($143,712/$1,689,500). That means our clients pay less than 7 cents on every dollar they owe the IRS. That also means our clients have saved more than $1.5 Million over the past five years. Incredible.

    There is no secret to our success. Instead, we give each potential client an honest evaluation of whether or not filing an offer in compromise is right for them. For example, if a taxpayer has a 401(k) worth more than the amount owed to the IRS, chances of acceptance are slim to none.

    While everyone’s situation is unique and we cannot guarantee results, we take care of our clients. In cases where an offer in compromise is not accepted and all appeals are exhausted, we continue to represent our clients by setting up appropriate payment plans with the IRS at no additional charge.

    If you struggle with IRS debt and want an honest evaluation on whether or not the IRS offer in compromise program is right for you, give us a call at (314) 261-4111 to schedule your consultation. You may also schedule an appointment online here.

  • Making Tax Court Less Taxing
  • November 8, 2015
  • As a CPA, you’ve been there. Working with a tax attorney who may have an LLM, but that’s the sum total of what he knows about the business of accounting. He’s never prepared a single return himself. And doesn’t really speak the language. Because everything he knows he learned in a classroom—not in the real world.

    Is it any wonder CPAs have a hard time finding a good tax attorney? One you can trust to understand not only the law—but also you, and the accounting challenges you face.

    I should know, because I began my career in tax accounting. I’ve prepared hundreds of tax returns. And felt the frustration of working with attorneys who might know tax code, but not tax forms. I knew there had to be a better way, and that’s why I became a tax attorney myself. Now, I see the total picture from both an accountant and an attorney perspective. And can be more effective in court as a result. Giving you and your clients a new advantage—perhaps one you didn’t think possible…

    The perfect fit. A tax attorney who will work with you, not against you. Who doesn’t have to move up a learning curve to understand your client’s tax issues. And from day one, can work with you to create the most effective strategy for your client.

    I know my role. I respect the relationship you have with your client, and I’ll go to bat for you both every day. No one can guarantee results. But I will be here for you every day, working hard to tell your client’s story effectively in court. I know how busy the IRS and Missouri tax authorities are, so I’ll make it easier for them to understand your perspective.

    Most of all, I keep my word. I do what I say I’ll do and will keep you and your client informed every step of the way. (After all, tax court is a marathon—not a sprint.) I return calls within 24 hours. I meet my deadlines. And I pledge to earn the trust you have placed in me, every day.

    Tax court is challenging enough. Your tax attorney shouldn’t be. Let me show you the difference the right experience—and the right attitude—can make.

    Call me now if your client has a tax dispute with:

    • United States Tax Court
    • IRS and State Audits
    • IRS and State Offers in Compromise
    • Delinquent and Amended Returns
    • Liens
    • Levies and Garnishments
    • Collection Due Process Appeals

Alex was a pleasure to work with. He was very clear on what he needed from us and obviously worked closely with the federal government to resolve our issue. He has exceeded our expectations. Scott St. Louis, MO

Alex is an amazing attorney! I really had very little confidence in any attorney and in particular a tax attorney. From the first phone call Alex made me feel at ease and never made me feel embarrassed by letting my tax situation get out of control. He took all the stress away and I am thrilled to say also resolved all of my tax issues quickly. He has gone above and beyond. I would recommend Alex to everyone! Josephine St. Louis, MO

For no other reason than my own need to express my gratitude, I would like to sincerely say thank you to The Alexander Law Firm. Alex has gone above and beyond my expectations and has taken the weight of the world off of my shoulders. I will continue to recommend him to anyone that I know searching for a Tax Attorney even if that may be my Grandmother! Jeremy St. Louis, MO

I can’t begin to express how wonderful my experience with The Alexander Law Firm has been. I came to see Alex with my disabled sister who had a tangled mess of tax issues. A plan was proposed to remedy my sister’s complex tax issues and was put into place as planned. Alex was on top of all issues and was there to answer all my questions. I feel he went over and above the norm. His compassion was greatly appreciated while my sister and I navigated this difficult time. I will continue to retain Alex’s services in the future and would definately recommend him to friends and family. Many thanks. Peggy St. Louis, MO

I presented The Alexander Law Firm with an IRS problem which I felt to be unsolvable. They solved the problem beyond my expectations. I am quite happy with their work and highly recommend The Alexander Law Firm. Tom Columbia, MO

Alex exceeded my expectations in handling my IRS and state tax issues. He is courteous, efficient and gets results. I highly recommend The Alexander Law Firm. Martin St. Charles, MO

This was my first experience in being audited by the IRS. I was extremely nervous as I heard horror stories and didn’t know what to expect. Contacting Alex was the best decision I’ve made. He was precise, knowledgeable, always on top of things and most importantly, he was able to put me at ease. By following his directions and recommendations, I was able to gather all the information necessary for the IRS. Alex was able to lead the entire process smoothly and I ended up with a no charge result. I would highly recommend Alex to be on your side if you are dealing with the IRS. M.N. St. Louis, MO

All my expectations have been exceeded. [The] firm is very easy to work with and I am pleased how my case is going so far. I have no complaints, great service. Eric St. Louis, MO

I had called four tax law firms and left messages and the only law firm that called me back was The Alexander Law Firm. After speaking with Alex about my tax issues, he informed me of the fee and told me that he would be happy to help with my tax problem. Alex kept in contact with me throughout the entire experience. What took me four years, in trying to comply with the State of Missouri, Alex helped and wrapped up in a short amount of time. After all was said and done, he had gotten the state of Missouri to settle for a fraction of what they had said I owed them. I would definitely recommend The Alexander Law Firm to any of my family or friends. Stuart St. Louis, MO

Alex helped me sort out a complicated mix of problems with the IRS and the Sate of Missouri. He could not have been more knowledgeable. He built a clear plan, dealt effectively with all parties involved and helped me get things settled. His focus and calm demeanor made dealing with him a pleasure. I recommend him without reservation. Steve Ferguson, MO
