The focus of our practice is civil and criminal taxpayer representation and bankruptcy, and see many taxpayers in Stamford, Connecticut struggling with back tax debt.  In addition, as someone who trains other tax practitioners to handle IRS collection issues, I am shocked at the low rate of acceptance for filed IRS Offers in Compromise.
