I faced a high six-figure back tax obligation to the IRS, caused by undisciplined financial management, late filing, under withholding and underpayment of taxes over several years. This situation was very embarrassing, and threatened my executive job and marriage. I tried dealing directly with the IRS, but I didn't know my rights and options for resolving the situation. Just as the IRS was about to file a levy and garnish my wages, I received a post card in the mail from Levy & Associates. I made an appointment with one of their associates and started getting the professional help I needed. The cost was fair, with highly responsive and supportive service. Levy's professionals represented me in dealing with IRS, shielding me and my wife from emotional strain and from making uninformed decisions. They helped me establish a fair repayment plan, taking into consideration my individual financial situation.
I’ve been going back and forth with a local IRS agent for some time with little results. They were about to garnish my pay again for the second time when I decided to call Mr. Levy for advise but instead he made one phone call and the garnishment was lifted after informing the IRS agent the request she wanted was not valid and not required under the tax code. An agreement was reached in less than 24 hours. Thanks again for your expertise in this matter.
When I decided it was time for me to take care of my income tax liability I started receiving letters from companies all over the United States. I thought I would contact Levy & Associates because they had an office in Indianapolis and I was living close to that city at the time. After checking with the Better Business Bureau I made an appointment with Mr. Levy and have not regretted my choice of Levy & Associates. From the first meeting Mr. Levy and his associates walked me through the process with a high degree of skill, professionalism, and optimism. They always made me feel important and treated me as a person not a case number. I really appreciated that. When the IRS made their first offer I began to lose hope but they encouraged me to appeal, which I did, and they were then able to work with the tax agent and reached an offer that I could now afford to repay saving me tens of thousands of dollars.
I owed the IRS over $35,000. The Levy Group was able to completely remove the liability and also was able to have the IRS refund money that they had erroneously taken. I can’t begin to thank them enough for their efforts!
The tax consultants at Levy and Associates helped our family with a balance of $7,422.24 owed to the State of Michigan. Lawrence Levy took care of the balance completely. He was efficient and worked in a timely manner. Now my husband and I have peace of mind. To anyone in need of tax help, do not hesitate to call Levy and Associates. Lots of thanks!
Not sure how they do it but whenever I call they make me feel like they work for me. No matter how busy Allen is, He always has time for me!
I am very pleased, to say the least, that i called Levy and Associates in general and Allen in particular have proven to be incredibly accessible, responsive and trustworthy. They have been there every step of the way in helping me to navigate the settlement process with New York State and the IRS. i recommend them unequivocally!
After years of stressing over my tax issues with the IRS, I contacted Levy and Associates. These people are the real deal. Personable, brilliant and reliable. They were responsive and always available to me. Best part, they got the job done and did so painlessly. They negotiated a deal with the IRS that was well beyond my expectations and very financially manageable. I’m truly, truly in their debt. Thanks to Lawrence and the team for a job truly well done.

I can't thank you and your staff enough for what you have helped me through. Rarely is the service advertised as good as the advertisement, however with regard to your company it is much better. I will refer as many people as I can to your office.
Jeff M. (8-18-2010)
The expert tax-team of accountants, lawyers and professional staff at Levy & Associates provided me with excellent service in helping resolve a six-figure tax bill with the IRS. Their kind and courteous approach in working with me, explaining clearly all the issues involved, concerning my tax problems, was a real comfort and gave me piece of mind. I strongly recommend Levy & Associates for resolving any and all tax matters.
Mark R. (8-20-2010)
We contacted The Levy Group back in July of 2009 to help with our tax issues that were looming over our head. After speaking with other tax agencies that specialize in the same type of work, The Levy Group was always professional and understanding of our delicate situation. Your team has been diligent and knowledgeable making us feel like we made the right choice. Thank you for taking us under your wing and working with the IRS and State in our behalf. We also want to thank you for your positive attitudes and willingness to explain every detail until we understand completely. We know the ride isn't over yet, but we have confidence in your support...Thank You.
Elva J. (8-21-2010)
The IRS advised me that their records showed that I owed over $50,000 in back taxes. The Levy Group worked diligently with me and a couple weeks ago, the IRS advised me that my offer of $500 had been accepted. I could not have asked for a better resolution.
Mabasa N. (8-30-2010)
I find it necessary to take the time out of my busy schedule to comment on the services your firm rendered regarding my tax case. I primarily want to get this info out to you and permit you to share this with any potential client who might be searching for the right people to handle their tax situation.
You congratulated me on the final outcome of my case but the congratulation should go to you, Tim and your staff because all of you have earned some well deserved credit. As you recall, I came to you having a disastrous experience with another company that holds itself out as the biggest and best in the country. i will hereinafter refer to the company as the "bad firm." After my experience with this bad firm and having checked out several companies, I feel because of my background as a CPA, I can make a valid and fair comparison of your firm with other firms attempting to render the same type of services.
At the time I decided to work with your company on my tax matters, the bad firm was ignoring some very important deadlines that would deprive me of certain rights should they not be met. Because of their inefficiency and not really understanding how to work with the tax authorities, my case was on the verge of possibly going criminal. You and your staff immediately acknowledged the deadlines, met them, and got my case back on track which was to get me away from any criminal consideration.
You knew exactly how and what had to be taken care of at all times. When any type of notice was received from the tax authorities you were onto it immediately. It was only a short time after engaging your services that i knew i was in the right hands and could have confidence that i was now working with the best of the best. I certainly will refer you to anyone who needs help with their tax matters.
One thing that your firm does specifically that leads to successful resolution of cases is that you inform your clients what they need to do on their part and when it comes to you doing your part you do it as a team. It was most common that when i needed to talk to you about my case, you had all the essential staff members on a conference call with me at the time. You also conducted yourself in the same manner in handling the tax authorities on any issue they raised. You and your people work together as a great team and this, I feel, is extremely important in handling these issues. You personally always stayed involved which I think also contributed greatly to the success.
What most people do not realize is that working tax resolution cases is a profession or specialty of its own. Again, as I encountered various things during the tedious process, you and your staff knew how to handle the situation and your team efforts always got things done expediently and efficiently. Without this one's case could very well turn against you as i experienced with the bad firm I engaged prior to your firm.
Lat but not least is the matter of what one can expect to pay for such services which I am sure every client is concerned. I personally paid the bad firm more than what you charged and yet you rendered many times the amount of services. Most firms want huge amounts up front and many times accomplish getting those fees by using scare tactics of what the tax authorities will do to you without their involvement. You didn't do that. You stayed ethically professional. I feel you earned every bit of what I had to pay you for your services. You helped me save many times that in the final outcome.
Lawrence, many thanks for a professional job well done. Considering all of the circumstances relative to my case, we did in fact have a favorable outcome. Keep up the good work and I hope many clients will appreciate what you can do for them.
Glen H. (9-22-2010)
I was mortified when the IRS garnished my wages for back taxes. I felt as if everything was hopeless. After calling several of the firms that advertise on television, I called Levy and Associates. I spoke with Lawrence and was impressed with the caring manner in which he spoke to me. I was treated with the utmost respect, courtesy, and professionalism. He and his team worked diligently and got the garnishment lifted and worked out an installment plan that was manageable. They gave me back my self esteem and peace of mind. I cannot thank them enough for the wonderful results!!
Kathleen G. (10-13-2010)
I want to thank you and your effective staff...from the bottom of my heat...for all your diligent work in the settlement of my tax issues with the IRS. I am especially grateful for your personal call and for your encouragement and assurance that whatever it would take, on your part, that this difficult IRS Issue would be resolved. These words truly lifted me up and gave me hope. I am also grateful for Tim's follow-up and efficiency and I am most grateful for Sarah's faithful and gracious response to all of my questions...and there were many. Her grace is to be commended. This has been a tremendous load off of my back and I did not want to move on without first thanking you and the Levy Group for an exemplary and marvelous work.
Sergio V. (11-15-2010)
I was assessed a penalty from the IRS for almost $5000.00 due to an error on my tax return prepared by my CPA of over 30 years. I was referred to Levy & Associates as they were told to me to be the "top in the industry" for IRS problems. I initially spoke to Lawrence Levy and he ensured that my file was immediately addressed in a not only a professional manner, but, in a warm and caring fashion. He and his staff worked diligently, keeping me informed every step of the way. I was informed by one of the attorney's in the office that the IRS granted me 100% penalty abatement- and my IRS worries are now in the past. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of the efforts from the Levy office. I would highly recommend them to anyone that has tax problems.
Barry B. (12-24-2010)
When faced with IRS challenges, you need an expert on your side, fighting for you, looking out for your best interests. I found that expert in Lawrence Levy & Associates. They employ top notch former IRS employees and tax attorney's that are knowledgeable in all areas of tax law. They were able to obtain an extremely reasonable compromise for us and eliminated all our years of headaches with the IRS. Lawrence Levy & Associates are the absolutely the best!
Jan L. (2-9-2011)
From the first minute I spoke to Levy and Associates, I knew that I made a wise decision. Their entire staff, from the receptionist to the president were incredible to deal with. My case was assigned to Tony Cipparone, a former IRS revenue officer. I worked closely with Mr. Cipparone and through the efforts of the firm, was able to have an OIC granted. I originally owed the IRS over $20,000 and settled the entire debt for $1200.00.
They did not make any promises from day 1-and they walked me through the process step by step. They were always informative and were able to answer my questions that I had all along.
I would highly recommend the Levy team to anyone that has tax problems!
Kiley K. (3-14-2011)
After a financially devastating divorce, I was left with a tax bill which was beyond my means. In 2 years, my debt with the IRS surpassed $30,000. After 3 more years of ignoring my arrears, the IRS finally seized my bank accounts and left me financially frozen. I've heard so many ads for settling taxes; but have also heard so many stories that these settlement companies don't do what they promise. I decided to learn more about settling. I researched companies and spoke with every major one out there. There was only one company out of them all which carried a Better Business Bureau rating of A+. They were also the only company in which I had confidence after my initial phone call. That very day, I retained Levy and Associates to settle my tax debt for a pre-negotiated flat fee. The next day, Mr. Lawrence Levy himself called me and expressed interest in my situation and showed genuine concern about getting this out of my life. He was in my town that day, and invited me for coffee. Lawrence personally collected my paperwork and put his team of dozens to work for me. Little did he know what a challenging client he would have. I was never billed another penny after the agreed upon fee. Lawrence's team was there for me 24/7, and truly cared about my case. After 2 years of negotiating, which is much longer than the average client, Levy and Associates settled my debt to the IRS with an accepted Offer In Compromise of $500! That's about 2% of my total debt owed to the IRS. Levy and Associates helped me get on with my life, and took the biggest weight off of my shoulders. If you are searching for some way to free yourself from the IRS, contact Levy & Associates. My name is Kenny Nassar, and I'm their most satisfied customer and am willing to be contacted by potential clients who like myself, have been a victim of circumstances. I'll be happy to tell you how they changed my life, and can change yours, too.

When I wound up having to deal with the IRS about a back taxes situation, it was probably one of the most stressful times of my entire life. I attempted to get the matter resolved several years ago and hired a local tax person to take care of it. Long story short, that person not only messed things up more than they were already, but he also took my money in the process. Tired and frustrated, I didn’t know what else to do, but then I came across an advertisement for Levy and Associates Tax Professionals. I called the number and wound up getting the head guy, Lawrence. I thought this was an accident and that he was going to refer to me to someone else who was going to listen to my story, but Lawrence, even though he was in the middle of traveling between business destinations, took all the time I needed, listened to everything I had to say, told me precisely what he could do to help, and then he actually set about doing what he said. The previous tax guys took months to do anything, and I had to stay on him to do what little he did do. Levy and Associates, on the other hand, was on the phone to my IRS revenue officer before 7:30am the very next morning! They got more done in 12 hours than the previous tax guy did in six months. Lawrence and his people are professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and straightforward. They are on point and they get the job done. Now that my case has been successfully and wonderfully resolved far beyond my expectations, I am using them for all of my tax-related business so that problems don’t get a chance to come up in the first place. I recommend them highly, and if anyone wants to get out from under an IRS headache, Levy and Associates are the people to help you!
DR. K.B. (7-27-11)
I whole-heartedly recommend Levy & Associates for the hard work that they have done to help defend me against the State of Michigan, I had a $300,000 tax liability assessed against me due to the failure of my business. The tax experts at Levy & Associates got the assessment against me completely cancelled.
Rob B. (8-14-2011)
Levy and Associates took my case pro bono and communicated with the IRS on my behalf regarding 941 taxes. They were able to negotiate to an 'noncollectable' status with the IRS.
Nancy B. (8-26-11)
To me long testimonials seem contrived and quite boring, so here it my attempt to shoot it straight. Anthony Cipparone is AWESOME!!!! He was real, honest, straightforward, and didn’t sugarcoat anything. Once he took control of our case we felt a sense of relief and we would have been more than happy just getting “this over with” and having a realistic payment plan set up. What we got was over $30,000 abated in penalties and interest. I know this sounds unbelievable, but I had a medical issue that was one reason for this mess and he assisted me in drafting a letter outlining the issues and poof we saved a ton of money.
This situation is ugly and having to deal with an attorney is not very pleasant, but Anthony made it as pleasurable as possible. I would recommend to anyone who has an issue with the IRS to not only reach out the Levy Group, but beg to get Mr. Cipparone assigned to your case. Thanks Anthony we owe you BIG TIME!
David R. (8-28-2011)
Words cannot describe how happy I am with Levy & Associates and the outcome of my tax situation. As you know I have been dealing with IRS tax issues for over five years. You also know I paid a professional CPA to do an Offer In Compromise approximately three years ago and not only was it declined, it was declined on appeal too. I bring this up because I was very skeptical of paying another large fee to try the exact same thing all over again, but I am I glad I did.
Lawrence, you never promised me anything other than a resolution and in all of my crazy phone calls to your cell phone (even when you were at the dentist with your son) you never once didn't answer my question thoroughly, sent me to voicemail, or mislead me in any way. You are a straight shooter and I sincerely thank you for that.
Danielle, I realize that from the beginning my case was not a black and white case. There are disparities in my income and expenses every month because I am a commission based employee, I have business income as well as personal income, and I didn't even know what a form 433A was prior to meeting you. I cannot thank you enough for the patience you extended to me during the hundreds of emails I sent you and for responding to every one of my emails in a timely fashion and with a direct answer.
I would refer your organization to anyone I know that ever needs your type of service. And service is what you provide in the finest sense of the word.
Greg and Alison G. (10-6-11)
Dear Mr. Levy,
I just had to write to you to thank you for all the help you have given us with our IRS tax problem. Today it was finally completely resolved and we received the official Certificate of Release of Federal Tax Lien. Believe me we are going to celebrate!
A few days after we had a death in the family, we had received a notice from the IRS that they were filing a tax lien against us. I had always planned on catching up with my taxes but life had gotten very crazy for us and I was devastated when I got the notification of the tax lien and of course it could not have come at a worse time. We were planning a funeral and I was calling a stack of letters from companies that all promised to help us. Every company seemed to have conflicting opinions and promises and they all seemed like heartless sharks looking to take advantage of our tax problem. My husband pulled your letter out of the bottom of the stack and asked if I had called your company. He suggested that I give you a call.
After I spoke to you on the phone, Mr. Levy I finally felt some hope and your caring and sincere manner really touched my heart. You were the only company that was not trying to "scare me." My husband I met with you at your offices and you introduced us to some of your staff. My husband, who is a totally non trusting New Yorker, finally began to believe that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Also, the price that you had quoted us seemed reasonable compared to the other companies I had called. You treated us with kindness and compassion. We had originally intended to meet with some other companies but we felt we could trust you and we were right.
We had 4 years of very delinquent taxes and Marc Schiller, your CPA, was a joy to work with. He was very patient with working with us to gather all our documents and what had seemed like insurmountable task of filing all these old tax returns, started to fall into place. He was kind and funny and kept reassuring me that this will all be behind you soon.
We kept in constant contact with Arnold Rose, your attorney who kept us informed of how everything was progressing and he always returned my calls the very same day. He took the time to explain things to us and always kept us in the loop of what the next step was. He was always there to calm me when I had a concern or I had received some correspondence from the IRS that was worrying me.
Even Megan Casey, in your accounting department was quick at sending me emails or returning my calls and was kind and pleasant.
Unfortunately, in this day and age, it is very rare to ever find a company who are nice to work with and ACTUALLY DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU ARE GOING TO DO.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us to finally get this Gorilla off our backs! It is hard to describe the feeling to finally know that we will not be hounded by the IRS any longer and we have you to thank for this!
Barbara G. (10-18-11)
I found myself buried in tax liens, deluged with threatening letters, out of work and out of ideas when I contacted Lawrence Levy. I had used their services a few years before, but slowly found myself avoiding my tax problems all over again (common thing among those with tax issues). Lawrence and I talked and we decided to continue where we had left off.
This time, with his encouragement, inspiring conversations and persistence, we managed to submit an Offer-In-Compromise.
Their work did not stop there, however.
I was then represented by Wendy Eisenshtadt, an attorney in the group, who consistently kept me informed and updated me every step of the way. At one crucial point in the negotiations, I had received an email from the IRS indicating that they were turning down my offer. This email came at 5:00 p.m. CST on a Friday afternoon. I immediately got a hold of Wendy, who had already placed a call to the case manager and "showed" her where the IRS position and analysis was wrong! Wendy was able to show the case manager the error of her ways by citing from their OWN resource manual. Had Wendy not been as familiar with the tax code as she was, which was more than the case manager's knowledge or that of her supervisor, and had she NOT jumped on it as soon as it was rejected, I would never have received the relief that I did, totaling over $40,000.
As delighted and thrilled as I was for this victory, I was immediately saddened to know that thousands of others would not have this benefit of "correcting" the IRS mistakes and faulty judgments because they didn't have Levy and Associates in their corner.
As happy as I was with this result, no one was more happy for me, or more proud of his team, than Lawrence himself. He is the most real, down-to-earth person you could ever meet, and I'm proud to call him friend.
I know from personal experience how a huge tax burden, deserved or undeserved, can weigh heavily on someone's life. I went from a very successful career in law enforcement and investigations to being one step from the streets, divorced, bitter custody battles, a failed business, and a failed twenty years of life. I know from personal experience what it's like to believe you are worth more dead than alive. I know from personal experience how the federal government could use and abuse its powers to essentially try to drain blood from a turnip.
Lawrence Levy and his Associates never once passed judgment on me for my personal failings or shortcomings. In fact, he was nothing but supportive, instilling in me that I had done all that I could under some very difficult circumstances This helped begin my process of healing and renewing my pride and self-esteem once again.
All of this was accomplished at an extremely reasonable cost and in a enormously quick amount of time, and could not have been accomplished at all without Levy and Associates.
Sincerely, Eugene S. (10-28-2011)
I cannot recommend Levy & Associates, Inc. more highly. At a time when I needed help in my fight with the Internal Revenue I was forced to make a cold call to Levy & associates, Inc. based on selection of their current advertising. From the moment I made contact with the firm my fears concerning the Internal Revenue were given immediate relief. Levy & Associates took charge of my problem with the Internal revenue and began a fast course towards the solution of this problem. The associate assigned to me was overly qualified,respectful and courteous. The firm made communication with them available at any time needed making me part of the solution and encouraging me to ask questions I might be concerned about. My comfort level eventually returned to normal. The entire episode was a positive experience from the very beginning. Sound judgement and methodical application brought withdrawal of my federal tax lien to a close. I am extremelty grateful to Levy & Associates,inc.for efforts on my behalf.

Choosing the right support in the financial area of my business is critical. When I sought out accounting and tax services, I looked for a company that had vast experience in a broad array of accounting and tax issues, including dealing with the IRS. I wanted a company that would be responsive and accessible since, as a businessman, sometimes I need an answer “at that moment”. Levy Tax Professionals has been nothing short of amazing. They certainly have been an integral part of my company’s success. By providing timely and useful information, they have allowed me to make better business decisions and increase my profitability. The responsiveness and experience of Marc Schiller has allowed me to focus on running my business without having to deal with outside distractions. I consider Levy Tax Professional to be an integral business partner for my company.
The professionals at Levy and Associates got me an incredible result. Mine was not a typical case. I went through bankruptcy, a messy divorce, some serious health issues, a foreclosure, and years of poor earnings. Due to my failure to file my income taxes for years, I owed the IRS more than $250,000. Levy and Associates went to work, helping me to collect the papers and information necessary to fight. They managed to get me into a position where the IRS declared my debt uncollectable; for now the pressure is off. I can't thank the people at Levy enough. If you have tax problems, they're the only answer.
Paul M. (April 2012)
In June of 2010 I owed over $89,000 to the IRS and nearly $28,000 to the Department of Revenue for my state. I received your information in the mail and immediately phoned you for more details. I signed a contract on June 14, 2010…I was so impressed with your staff at how diligent and quickly they worked. I was extremely pleased with the fact that through their perseverance and know how they were able to negotiate an Offer in Compromise with the IRS for the sum of $300.00. Through more months of negotiating with the Department of Revenue an Offer in Compromise was accepted for $10,000. I have told scores of people of my situation and how well your company performed. I could not be happier with the results.
Jay T. (June 2012)
Given the magnitude and complexity of my situation, the resolution took several years. During that time Allen was proactive, kept me informed and helped me get through the waves of anxiety that accompany a situation like this. Not only did he become a trusted advisor and representative, but also a very good friend. The situation has finally been resolved and the outcome was positive beyond any expectations I had. There is no doubt that it was a result of Allen & Danielle championing my cause and giving the extra effort to advocate on my behalf given the unique circumstances of my past and current situation. Having worked with many accountants, lawyers and advisors over the course of my career, I can safely say that the Levy team went well beyond anything I have experienced before. They are consummate professionals and dedicated and compassionate individuals. My deepest gratitude to Lawrence, Allen, Danielle, Charles and the entire Levy & Associates Team for what they have done for me. I look forward to continuing my relationship with the firm. Needless to say they have a client for life.
Tom S. (July 2012)
We are happy to provide our highest recommendation to LEVY & ASSOCIATES, INC. tax professionals. Our Company was under audit review from the IRS. We used a local professional on our case, which not only did a poor job of handling our positions on the case, but missed deadlines and did not inform us of the material needed to document our deductions to the IRS. After receiving a six figure demand for payment from the IRS we became aware of the poor representation. We now had one day to respond to the IRS or loose appeal rights. We engaged LEVY & Associates, Inc., they responded in the one day period we had, was able to re-open the case with the IRS representative, and obtain the time necessary to properly document and present our positions. The result was a drastic (almost total) reduction in the amount owed to the IRS. LEVY & ASSOCIATES, INC. are knowledgeable, professional responsive and effective, with their guidance the IRS was satisfied but more importantly so were we. We will use them in the future for any IRS or State tax issue that may arise. Again I give LEVY & Associates, Inc my highest recommendation.
Mark M. (July 2012)
I hope you never get to share my experience of answering a knock at your front door and having the IRS agent sent to see you ask to come in. My reaction was to hire Levy and Associates, who completely took over and we are now close to a resolution of my tax issues. I hired Lawrence and his team because I specifically didn't want to work with a one or two person firm like a ‘mom & pop’ shop. I wanted a national firm with extensive experience in dealing with the IRS to at least attempt to level the playing field since the IRS is such a powerful arm of the U.S. government. My Levy & Assoc team comprises of CPAs and lawyers with Lawrence coordinating everything at the ‘hub’ of this ‘wheel’. I have the direct phone numbers of my team and they respond quickly to any and all requests for them to contact me whenever I need them. For me personally, working with Lawrence and his associates, is the difference between my sleeping at night, or staying awake worrying. I recommend them to help solve all of your tax resolution problems.
Barry W. (August 2012)
Our companies, like many in Michigan, suffered the effects of the 2010 recession and were several hundred thousand dollars delinquent in payroll taxes. At the advice of our accountant, we contracted the services of a local attorney who ended up lacking the in-depth knowledge and experience and good working relationships with the IRS to reach a suitable solution. Finally, after our bank accounts were levied and we were faced with missing payroll, we decided to change course and gave Levy and Associates a call. We called Levy and Associates Michigan office well after 5 pm on a Monday. We expected to reach someone’s voicemail, but much to our surprise, we spoke directly with Lawrence Levy. Immediately, Lawrence and his team went to work. The next morning, we met with the Levy team. They immediately put a plan of action together which resulted in: A) a release of our funds from bank levy, B) an installment agreement that allows us to pay back our debt while continuing operations, and C) even got us a partial refund on the monies paid to our first attorney. IRS issues are nothing to mess with. Levy and Associates have the knowledge, experience and good working relationships with the IRS necessary to resolve the seemingly hopeless.
Jeff S. (August 2012)
So now I know what it feels like to be afraid of the mailbox! And forget answering the phone! There's nothing quite like the uncertainty you feel when there's a chance the IRS may show up at your door! Because, like most people, I did NOT want to live that way, and truly didn't believe I deserved to, I checked out my options. Going in I knew we had a unique story, which I later found out, was not so unique sadly! A builder had stolen all our money, left us with little more than the shell of a house, and people banging on our door to be paid! He bankrupted us, got us sewed, stiffed us with a huge project, and no money to do it. And to top it all off, at this point I got pregnant and my husband wasent working! Still not sure how we pulled it off, but I know what saved us from actually having to give up possessions and having what pay we did get, be levied! After seeking assistance from another tax solution company that took our money, and did absolutely nothing to help us, and using one person, tho honest and hard working, not knowledgable, untrained in my situation and frankly, nervous to make another mistake knowing we couldn't survive it again, I found Levy and associates. Luckily, a neighbor, an ex-IRS agent, had worked with Lawrence himself and said she herself would trust him if tables were turned! Walking in, nervous and afraid of what reality may lie ahead, I was surprisingly put right at ease! I was not talked down to, like some dummy who just didn't want to pay my taxes, but educated on options, laws and ways to make a solution fit a situation! Everyone in the office took part in my case, like a family would. They never stopped until (and even after) resolution! It was something I never thought I would see! It was manageable, understandable, and most of all, acceptable and I know it wouldn't have happened without them! When I felt desperate, they made it go away! LEGALLY! I highly recommend them to anyone scared, nervous or desperate to get out of a bad tax situation! Oh, and now I use them for all my tax needs every year, now that's trust!
F.K. (September 2012)
Upon receiving the dreaded IRS notification to audit our 2009 tax return, I (the wife) immediately went into panic mode. Not knowing which way to turn, we Googled the Better Business Bureau for tax attorneys and found that Levy & Associates was listed as a BBB Accredited Business. With that one phone call to Allen in the Boca Raton, FL branch, we knew the right company had been contacted. Allen and Marc immediately went to battle with the IRS on our behalf. The first settlement arrived and we were ready to pay and get this behind us. After taking Marc’s advice to appeal, the second settlement arrived and it was almost half the amount of the first one. During this game of cat and mouse with audit one, we received a second IRS audit notification for 2010. Marc was contacted and once again, he went right to work. He performed a miracle on this audit with us owing ZERO to the IRS. We would highly recommend Levy & Associates to anyone battling the IRS. They are very professional and will immediately put your mind at rest. Every time we called either Allen or Marc was available to answer our questions and that one attribute was the most reassuring of them all.

My name is Duane , Santa Clarita California. I am 48 years old and the father of 4 beautiful daughters. I have worked in the film industry for most of my career. I was unfortunately caught in the financial downturn of our economy. Between the housing crash and loss of work along with an injury, I was unable to pay my taxes for three years in a row. I was losing sleep, and sick to my stomach every day wondering how I was ever going to be able to catch up with my bills and most of all, Uncle Sam. I owed a substantial amount of money and with penalties and interest, there was absolutely no way out. Fortunately I had the right people on my side who helped me every step of the way to not only get my case resolved, but completely dismissed. Absolutely did not expect that outcome, I am so grateful and forever indebted to The Levy Group. They literally saved my life. That is not an understatement. Once again, Thank You to The Levy Group....!!!!!

I’m writing you to express my thanks for the tremendous work performed by you and your staff on my behalf. My particular situation was anything but common, and I was unsure if anyone was able to help. I’m not sure if you are aware, but I learned of your company from a mailing advertisement. That said, Levy and Associates was not the first call I made in my search to discover if anyone had the knowledge or resolve to assist in the tax issue affecting me and my business. What set Levy and Associates apart was the focus your team placed on my dilemma. Due to the unique nature of my situation, consideration needed to made for the legal, accounting, and financial aspects. Levy and Associates was up to the challenge and had the expertise and resources to address every facet. I must admit, there were times when I doubted we would prevail, yet the regular updates and follow up reflected the tenacity and unflinching will of your team. Upon learning of the positive outcome, we all shared a victory cheer. It was then that I knew I wasn’t just some client on a ledger. I appreciate everything you did for me and recommend you to all my friends and family. I wish you all the best Lawrence!

I want to thank you and your dedicated staff for everyone's exceptionally professional and personal assistance my wife and I received regarding our recent tax issues. Levy & Associates took on a critical and extremely stressful situation for us and resolved it expeditiously and professionally. We were treated with the utmost respect and encouraged with confidence by your team that our issues could be resolved. We were both very impressed with the simple fact that no matter who we worked with at Levy & Associates, no matter who picked-up the phone, whether it was you personally, our accountant or the receptionist, every one of your team members treated us and our case in a calm and professional manner with a sense of urgency, as if our problem was the only important issue at that moment. I just wanted you to know we greatly appreciated and are forever grateful for the expertise of your team and the results your of team's efforts and would highly recommend Levy and Associates to anyone with tax concerns.
