Long Beach, CA Residents and Businesses can Release a Tax Levy in One Day and Fix IRS Problems Without High Tax Lawyer Fees

Do you have a tax levy, such as a wage garnishment for unpaid taxes? Have you been visited by an IRS agent or received a notice of payment due? 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 Naples, Belmont Shore, Bixby Knolls, or downtown Long Beach 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 Former Dave Ramsey ELP 2012-2019.

Please call us at 877-788-2937 or contact us for a free, personal and confidential consultation with me, a licensed Enrolled Agent.

You’re Not Alone—We Can Help

About 470,000 people live in Long Beach—almost 5% of the entire Los Angeles County. This includes residents in the neighborhoods of Belmont Heights, Belmont Shores, Bixby Village/Terrace, El Dorado Park, Imperial Estates, Naples, Park Estates, Terminal Island, West Long Beach, Wrigley, and many more.

It is certain that several thousand Long Beach residents have IRS problems, such as tax levies, wage garnishments, property seizures, past due tax returns, unfiled taxes, and IRS tax audits.

In addition, Long Beach is home to about 15,000 businesses. 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, Long Beach is home to about 15,000 businesses. 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.

Please call us at 877-788-2937 or contact us for a free, personal and confidential consultation with a licensed Enrolled Agent, who charges an affordable flat fee to resolve your case.


Tax Liens, Tax Levies, and Wage Garnishments

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 Former Dave Ramsey ELP 2012-2019, 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 Long Beach tax payers 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.

That means you’re 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 some tips for an effective resolution:

  1. Educate yourself about your rights during the various kinds of tax audits:

    Tax audits can come in the form of correspondence audits, office audits, or at-home audits.

    Correspondence audits are the most common and least threatening, dealing with simple tax return requests such as copies of W-2’s or 1099s. It can also be the first stage of more complex audits.

    Office audits are often more intense and require more documentation, such as an inspection of bank records that you bring into the IRS office. A home visit by an IRS agent is a serious matter handled by agents with more training than a typical tax examiner.

    While you may handle a simple correspondence audit with ease, the office and home audits are not to be taken lightly. Agents don’t always follow procedures or have good bedside manners. You may not know what your rights are or what kind of information the IRS can legally acquire from you at this stage of the investigation or how they will use the information you give them. You may miss opportunities for an effective resolution by not having an experienced, licensed tax resolution specialist at your side.

  2. Get help from a highly reputable enrolled agent.

    Enrolled Agents 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; I have represented 2,000 taxpayers over the past 20 years before the IRS.

  3. Remember that you are not alone and there is help.

    The sooner you resolve your IRS problems, the sooner your life can resume without IRS fears or continued penalties.

    Los Angeles County and California IRS Tax Data
    Long Beach County and California IRS Tax Data


    Long Beach is the second largest city in Los Angeles county and the seventh largest in California.

    Officially incorporated in 1897, Long Beach was influenced by pioneer real estate entrepreneurs of the Wild West, such as Jonathan (Don Juan) Temple who purchased Rancho Los Cerritos in 1827. His adobe house is a national landmark and his very own street that he developed, Temple Street in Los Angeles, is a monument to his legacy.

    Another major influencer was the Bixby clan who were active land owners and ranch farmers. Most notable for Long Beach was John W. Bixby who formed the Alamitos Land Company and began developing a seaside resort, naming streets and laying out parks around the scenic bluffs—areas that are now known as Belmont Heights, Belmont Shore, and Naples.

    Today, more than five million tourists visit Long Beach—one million at the Aquarium Pacifica in Downtown Long Beach. Others flock to Shoreline Village for shopping and a tour of the famous Queen Mary to stay overnight or attend events throughout the year.

    As an employer, the Port of Long Beach rivals the US government, “supporting over a million jobs nationally” and generating billions of dollars in economic activity. That’s because over $180 billion in cargo pass through the Port of Long Beach—a pivotal hub between Asia and the US and the second busiest port in America.

    My office is located just north of Downtown Long Beach off the 605 freeway, I look forward to personally meeting you and handling your tax resolution needs.

Client Reviews
Mike has given us peace of mind! He helped negotiate down a large balance and get us on a payment plan that we can afford with no worries! The stress of dealing with the IRS is huge and Mike helped us through it all. The peace of mind is invaluable, thank you Mike! April S.
Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him! Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation! Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied! Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends. Nancy & Sal V.
