I was a 1099 independent contractor and unfortunately got myself in a lot of tax debt . Before finding Fortress tax relief I had hired an accountant and attorney and both were a waste of money and time that didn’t help my situation. Once I a become a client of Fortress my problems were immediately being resolved . I completely recommend them to anyone in need of tax debt guidance and relief.

I was at my wits end because I owed thousands of dollars in back taxes to the IRS. I was getting certified letters every other day from the IRS. Also, they were threatening to hit me with a levy. Initially, I tried another tax place but the guy I talked to literally laughed at me and was like can't you handle this problem yourself. I am thinking to myself if I felt like I could why would I be calling around for help. I believe his rejection was a blessing in disguise because after that I called Fortress Tax Relief. They were very prompt with getting back to me. Everyone at Fortress Tax Relief are very friendly, welcoming and professional. The individual who helped me to resolve my case was Mr. Artour S.. He thoroughly explained my options and was very prompt with working on my case with the IRS. Mr. S. helped me come to a satisfactory conclusion and an affordable payment plan with the IRS. I would recommend them to anyone who feels like they are in over their heads when it comes to the IRS.

After speaking with Fortress Tax Relief the first time, I was ready to use this company to help me resolve my tax debt with the IRS. They were professional, informative and hard working.

Working with Fortress Tax Relief has given us a peace of mind we would have certainly lacked otherwise. Our questions are answered promptly and our options explained clearly. Resolving issues with the IRS is certainly a process we would not want to tackle on our own and thankfully we don't have to with Fortress on our side. For us the process is ongoing, hence the four stars. When it is resolved and over we will be so happy five stars would be too little - T

I worked with the team at Fortress Tax Relief over the past year for an OIC settlement that reduced my liability with the IRS from six-figures plus to less than $4,000. David and his assistant Sayward were informed, efficient and effective. I highly recommend their services.

I hired Fortress Financial after I received a small business related tax bill from the IRS for over $400,000 that was from well over a decade ago. I felt panicked and immediately started researching tax professionals to help. I actually chose Fortress after reading a negative review. The detailed response made sense to me and I felt very confident that they had done their job well. All of the other positive reviews added to that confidence and I was impressed that they really take the time to read reviews and respond appropriately and professionally. It was also important to me that I have a tax attorney, not a CPA. My situation felt complicated and overwhelming. Shout out to Mike, Peter and Karlin! When I reached out, Mike called me and immediately and was kind, professional and knowledgeable, putting me at ease immediately. Throughout the process, much was taken off my plate and taken care of by Peter and Karlin. They worked through 3 offer denials from the IRS, delays during Covid and always kept me up to date and informed, sometimes just reaching out to see if I had concerns. I am so very thrilled to say that the IRS has accepted an offer that is so much better than I had dared hope, under $10,000! I am sending a check today to have this behind me forever and the weight of what felt like the world off my shoulders. Thank you Fortress Financial! I would highly recommend you to anyone. Side note...I love the song when I call and am being transferred! Made me smile every time! Thank you all!

We owed several years of taxes we could not pay and I tried to work with the IRS on a payment plan and was denied. After stressing and many sleepless nights I researched top tax attorneys. Fortress always came up first with excellent reviews. I did first look up reviews on the Better Business Bureau and Google and was very pleased with what I saw so I gave them a call. I’ve been working with David and Heather for almost 5 years now and happy to say we finally made our last payment. The payment plan David secured with the IRS was very manageable. David and Heather always communicated and explained every question I had, always responded to my emails, and were very easy to work with for the entire time. I would definitely give Fortress Financial five stars and hope that I never need to use them again , but if so , they will be certainly be who I call. Thank you for making our life less stressful.

There are not enough adjectives of praise in the English language I could use to show our gratitude towards Fortress Financial. They are a top notch organization. If you are seeking for someone to face off with the IRS, we highly recommend these folks. We first started trying to tackle our IRS issue with a local law firm that our accountant recommended and after months (and 10’s of thousands $ later), all they did was set up a payment plan. No reduction in the amount owed. We could not maintain these payments. We got into this mess because our profit margin was thin. So, having another $3,000 monthly bill was impossible to maintain. As most business owners out there can relate; What do we do in situations like this? We reduce our #1 expense, which is payroll. Well, things still must get done and this falls right on the business owner’s lap, but the IRS issue does not go away. DO NOT IGNORE IT! I know where you are at right now, scared to see the Mailman. Scared to answer that call showing GOV on your caller ID. Scared to go home and see a slip on your front door stating there is a CERT mail from the IRS. Scared to see a text message from the bank alerting your bank account is very low, which prompts you to check your account online. The account that showed $30,000 yesterday is now negative $2,000 and tomorrow payroll is due! STOP being scared and call Fortress Financial. Do it right now! They will be your frontline force and handle ALL IRS inquiries, so you can focus on your business. I can write a book on why you should use Fortress Financial. They took a sizable IRS debit (and I mean sizable), down to a fraction owed. In fact, so low, we are able to settle with one check! My father was a Marine and fought in both WWII and the Korean War and he told me a story that fits this review perfectly. The Army (you) was in full retreat. They were being overrun by a sizable force (IRS). There was one Marine, digging a foxhole right in the middle of the road. He told the retreating Army, “Don’t worry guys. Stand behind me. This is how far they will get”. Fortress is that Marine.

They were prompt, efficient and relieved the burden and pressure after our first contact with the company. They handled everything and made the stress fall away.

The experience my wife & I had with Fortress Tax Relief could not have been any better. The communication from them was superb. They were honest & open with us from the start. Same day answers to questions we had. They were available via email or phone. David was fantastic as was Sayward. They walked us step by step through the process of resolving the tax issue we had with the IRS. Our problem was solved with their help only. The result we got from them regarding the issue with the IRS was stellar, it could not have been better. Adam

Art and his legal team were amazingg guides helping negotiate both our business and personal tax debt. His calm and clear approach helped us to understand the process of resolution. They offered us solid advice in what seemed like a overwhelming debt. Thank you for taking the time to learn our circumstance and work to resolve a plan of repayment that was within our ability to pay.

I appreciated the quick responses and the relief to my needs, having people that can relate to my issues and then reassuring someone that they are working on my behalf is a relief. Sometimes folks need help and this was what my experience was. Great!

David P and Sayward B with Fortress have been absolutely the best to work with! I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of help settling their tax debt with the IRS! At first I had tried to work directly with the IRS officer about setting up payments to take care of our tax debt and that proved to be a nightmare. Hiring Fortress Tax Relief was the best decision we could have made. It was such a relief to have them dealing with the IRS on our behalf and they have done an amazing job negotiating and monitoring everything along the way.

The team at Fortress was extremely responsive and helpful with providing me guidance and advice for my unique situation. They also did a fine job acting as an intermediary and bringing things to a successful conclusion. The outcome more than made up for the fee for their services. There was no doubt that their vast experience and knowledge of how things work made the difference. I highly recommend Fortress Tax Relief.
