Are you searching for tax defense and relief from a specialist in tax resolution but can’t pay the high cost of a tax attorney? If you answered yes, there is good news for you.You Don’t Need to Pay a Tax Attorney to Resolve Your Tax Problems
As an IRS Enrolled Agent (EA), I am licensed by the US government to represent Los Angeles county taxpayers before the IRS, release and remove your tax levy and wage garnishment, settle your debt, prepare your back taxes, and help you achieve a fresh start.
I work personally and confidentially with every client at a reasonable flat fee quoted up front and will get you the same resolution and relief as high-cost tax attorneys one would find in Beverly Hills, Century City, or Downtown Los Angeles who charge $300–$1,000 per hour.I have personally represented 2,000 taxpayers over the past 20 years before the IRS.
Only CPAs, tax lawyers, and Enrolled Agents (EA) are allowed to talk to the IRS on your behalf.
Enrolled Agents, however, are the only tax professionals who are licensed by the US government and who specialize in tax resolution.
Your CPA may know how to prepare your tax return, but he may not know all of the IRS or FTB resolution options when you can’t pay your taxes.
I specialize in tax relief and resolution.
A tax attorney is a good choice for defending you in rare cases of tax evasion and fraud or when you want to sue the IRS; but in the case of removing tax levies, settling tax debt, and other tax problems with the IRS, BOE, FTB and EDD, an Enrolled Agent is the specialist you need to represent you at reasonable cost.
My firm is an A+ accredited member of the Better Business Bureau and an endorsed local provider (ELP) by Dave Ramsey.

More people live in Los Angeles county than 43 US states—about ten million people. This includes residents of Burbank, Glendale, Beverly Hills, Century City, City of Los Angeles Santa Monica and West Hollywood in the north to Long Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Torrance in the south to Pomona, Claremont and San Dimas in the east and El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Torrance and Rancho Palos Verdes in the west.
It is certain that several thousand LA residents (and millions more in the US) have IRS problems, such as tax levies, wage garnishments, property seizures, past due tax returns, unfiled taxes, and IRS tax audits.
In addition, LA offers about 250,000 employment establishments. Many of them also need tax help with or tax levies removed by the FTB, BOE, and EDD.
It may seem easy to ignore the government’s demand for payment, but waking up to an empty bank account or a repossession is very difficult.
In addition to tax levies, tax liens, and wage garnishments, some cases are referred to the IRS criminal investigation division and can result in imprisonment. Sometimes an officer or agent of the IRS, FTB, BOE, or EDD will even visit your office or home.
The fact is, failure to file tax returns is a felony and subject to criminal and civil penalties.
However, in my 20 years providing tax preparation and tax resolution services, the main reasons people need tax levies removed, unfiled tax return preparation, and other tax defense services are due to major life events, such as divorce, grief, unemployment, bankruptcy, medical, physical, and emotional issues, or simply procrastination and ignorance.
Whatever your life situation is, you do not have to go another day or another year with the added stress of tax levies, tax liens and other IRS problems in your life—and you do not need to pay $300+ an hour to a tax attorney for help.
TAX PROBLEMS WE RESOLVE
In 2014 throughout the US, the IRS filed over 535,000 tax liens, requested 1,995,000 tax levies on third parties, and conducted 432,000 seizures through Field Collection programs.
You don’t have to become one of these statistics.
A tax lien is a claim attached to your assets, such as bank account, wages, or real estate that allows the IRS, FTB, BOE or other entity to seize your property to pay off the debt owed.
A tax levy is the actual seizure of your property to pay the debt, such as a wage garnishment.
Ignoring tax liens and notice of tax levies only result in much higher fines and stress than is necessary. You have options, such as presenting an offer in compromise, installment plan, CNC-Currently non-Collectible status, and others.
But you should not try to release a tax levy or resolve your IRS issues alone.
Contact a licensed Enrolled Agent endorsed by Dave Ramsey, who specializes in tax lien and levy removal for personal and quick relief.Past Due and Unfiled Tax Returns for Individuals and Businesses
Whatever your reason is for not filing in the past, it is time to prepare and file now before you lose any refunds or tax credits due to you, and before the IRS places tax levies against your assets or seizes your property.
The sad fact is that the IRS has no deadline to collect taxes from you, but they will only refund any taxes owed to you for the past three years. For example, if you have not filed taxes for five years, you can still file your tax return and get any refunds due to you only for the past three years but not for the fourth or fifth year.
The longer you wait, the more late penalties build up and the more likely you will get a letter from the IRS asking for payment within 10 days, or even an audit.
If you have already received an IRS letter, ignoring it will only result in unnecessarily high penalties and legal costs. But you have a safe alternative— talk to me, Mike Habib, Enrolled Agent.
I specialize in tax resolution and am licensed by the federal government to represent you before the IRS in your tax defense, so that you can become compliant with the IRS.
You can remove the fear and anxiety of unfiled back tax returns and other IRS tax problems from your life.

Within 4,057 square miles Los Angeles county is home to a little over ten million people, with about 3,700,000 employees.

You are not alone!
We will help you prepare and file your back tax returns and resolve any IRS tax problems, so you can live free of fear of the IRS. Here are steps to get started:
Whether you have not yet filed your taxes or have a tax levy against your assets, one option for tax relief is the Offer in Compromise (OIC), which is available if you haven’t paid back taxes, penalties, or interest. An OIC is an agreement to settle your tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed.
The guidelines were reworked by the IRS in 2012 to make the process easier for struggling taxpayers to qualify. However, beware of tax resolution sales people who promise that they can get all their clients pennies on the dollar in compromise. The truth is, not all taxpayers qualify and not all offers are accepted. In 2014, only 27,000 Offers in Compromise were accepted out of 68,000 received.3
Don’t get ripped off by people who guarantee an Offer in Compromise acceptance for you. Speak to a licensed and experienced enrolled agent to find out if you qualify for an Offer in Compromise and what other tax help is available to you.
I am an Enrolled Agent (EA) and have represented 2,000 taxpayers over the past 20 years before the IRS. Only CPAs, attorneys, and Enrolled Agents (EA) are allowed to talk to the IRS on your behalf, Enrolled Agents, however, are the only tax professionals who are licensed by the US government and who specialize in tax resolution. Your CPA or attorney may not know the IRS as well as I do.
The sooner you file and resolve your IRS problems, the sooner your IRS fears, anxiety, and penalties will stop.
65% of Los Angeles County residents (or about 6.5 million people) are in the civilian labor force. That’s about the same percentage as all of California.

I am a proud resident of the city of Whittier in the county of Los Angeles–originally named El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora Reina de Los Angeles Sobre el Rio Porciuncula (The Town of Our Lady, Queen of the Angels on the Porciuncula River.).
LA (as we call it now) is the second largest county in area in the nation, which includes two islands: San Clemente (uninhabited and operated by the US Navy for training and rocket testing) and Santa Catalina (with about 4,000 residents and great scuba diving on a day trip).
Larger in area than Rhode Island and Delaware combined, it was formed in 1850 when the state of California was formed.
Los Angeles is not home to the happiest place on earth. Orange County claims that. But we do claim the wiles of Venice Beach, the fast action at Six Flags Magic Mountain, the quaint retreat of the Queen Mary harbored in Long Beach, and the mysterious La Brea Tar Pits, where sloths and mammoth bubble up.
Los Angeles includes some stunning and humble beaches (from Malibu in the north to Long Beach in the south), the San Gabriel Mountains, San Fernando Valley, and the high desert of the Antelope Valley and Palmdale-Lancaster. We have national and state forests, and even caves in the Santa Monica Mountains and Griffith Park.
Within our 4,000 square miles, Los Angeles has almost every kind of terrain you would like to hike up or drive through or just pull off the side of the road and meditate on—not to mention entertainment.
We also own the area code 90210 that is Beverly Hills, the Hollywood scene and its famous sign (originally Hollywoodland) and the Forever Cemetery where such loved celebrity icons as Mel Blanc is buried, the Looney Tunes voice actor whose headstone reads, “That’s all folks.”
My office is in the southern part of the county, easy to reach via the 5, 605, and 60 freeways.
