A Local, Michigan Tax Resolution Firm vs. National Firms – Our Advantages

Austin & Larson Tax Resolution is a Michigan-based firm. We have offices in downtown Howell, MI, Jackson, MI, and in Saginaw, MI; centrally located for all of our current and prospective Michigan clients. There are many advantages to choosing a local Michigan tax debt relief firm over a large national corporation. Unlike a national corporation, we are always available to meet with our clients and discuss the specifics of their tax debt case with them. We encourage our clients to ask questions and bring in their tax documentation for review and discussion. Instead of being just another tax debt case file on a desk across the country, with Austin & Larson Tax Resolution, you will know the person handling your case. We truly care about each of our clients and strive to create lasting business relationships with each of them. We look forward to continuing to represent your IRS and Michigan state tax matters long after your current tax liabilities are settled to give you a fresh start.

Our clients are the cornerstone of our tax debt relief business. We believe that the better we know our clients, the more accurately we can represent you to the State of Michigan or federally with IRS. While a lot of tax debt representation is based on numbers, there is a human element to dealing with the IRS and the State. If the person representing you has never met you, how can they properly portray your individual circumstances to the IRS?

We stay true to our Michigan small-town heritage. We believe in a job well done and take pride in the work that we do. We go above and beyond for our clients. While working with our tax resolution firm, we will represent your tax debt relief matters as if they were our own. We will continue to pursue all tax settlement options to successfully resolve your tax debt – individuals, businesses or corporations.


Each client’s tax situation is unique and will require its own plan for tax resolution. Before sitting down to meet with you, we will already have begun our representation of your tax matters. We will contact the IRS and review your account transcripts to determine what information they are looking for and to request a stay on collections. We will then schedule your tax consultation to sit down with you to discuss what information the IRS is requesting and the timeline for providing it. We will review all facts and circumstances to create a customized tax relief plan for resolving your tax liabilities. We will also advise you of the steps necessary to ensure that you do not acquire any new tax debt in the future. After determining the best course of action, we will immediately start working on resolving your tax debt. From the moment you retain our firm, we will be your voice with the IRS and the point of contact for all taxing entities. We will handle all direct communication with the IRS and the State of Michigan. Also included as part of our tax debt service, is a review correspondence to make sure that information is timely provided and that no deadlines are missed – critical communications help and/or tax audit help.

Each of the IRS settlement programs for resolving tax liabilities have pros and cons. Often, taxpayers will enter a program not realizing some of the consequences of the program. For instance, a taxpayer trying to re-finance their house or property is not going to want to enter into resolution that will result in the IRS filing a federal tax lien. Filing an Offer in Compromise may not be a good option for a taxpayer about to receive a large wage increase. When we meet with you to review your options, we will make sure that you are fully informed of the pros and cons of each plan so you can make an educated choice on which is best for you.

We will continually monitor your case to ensure that the initial plan for resolution continues to be your best resolution option. If there is a change in your financial or personal circumstances, we will review your case and adjust our original plan to continue to work towards the best resolution option.

It is our goal not only to resolve your current tax liabilities, but also to make sure that you do not have any further tax problems. Throughout your case we will discuss the steps you need to take to get into compliance with the IRS and the State of Michigan. We want to make sure that all our clients not only receive the best possible outcome for resolving their tax liabilities, but also that they understand how to not accrue additional tax debt in the future.


Many of our clients come to our firm after first trying to resolve their tax problem on their own. There are some situations where a taxpayer can establish their own resolution and do not need a resolution firm to assist them. However, before deciding to work directly with the IRS, you should know what your options are. We are happy to schedule a consultation to review your situation and go through these options with you.

Hiring a tax debt resolution firm to represent your tax matters is a serious decision. Choosing the wrong representative can be a very costly mistake. When choosing a tax representative, it is important to choose a company that has knowledge and experience in dealing with the IRS. Just because someone prepares tax returns does not mean that they have knowledge in resolving back tax debt. Having an experienced representative may save you thousands of dollars in tax debt and will likely result in much more favorable results. Contact our office to speak with representatives with the experience and expertise to achieve successful tax debt relief today. Our services start with a free, no-obligation consultation about your tax problems. Serving Michigan taxpayers with professional tax debt relief services – that’s Austin & Larson Tax Resolution.
