Dear Mr. Gilland, September 17, 2009
First of all I want you to know that I put Mr.Gilland just to be proper, but we really think of you as Jim, our friend.
Words cannot express the feeling of utter relief that we felt upon receiving your phone call the other day. This is a day that we have hoped and prayed for, for many years!! For the first time in a long time we were able to go to sleep at night without a lingering feeling of doom and despair over how to get out of our IRS situation. Having had an IRS agent sitting in our kitchen looking at our personal possessions and basically giving us a scenario that was bleak and so far out of the realm of possibility for us to comply with was a living nightmare!! We had tried for years to deal with them ourselves but to no avail.
Having contacted you was the best thing that we could have done. Your knowledge, advice and professionalism was truly refreshing and a breath of fresh air in our seemingly hopeless situation!! You seemed to understand that we are good people that had made some bad business decisions and gotten into a mess. We appreciate you treating us with respect and dignity. We totally expected to have to surrender most of our belongings to satisfy the IRS. To come out on the other end and not have to lose anything, and also with an offer that is feasible for us is truly a blessing!! Your counsel and guidance was exactly what we needed. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your help. You have been an answer to our prayers and we are so grateful!!
We wish you the best of luck in your future business endeavors and would be very willing to refer and recommend your services so that you would be able to help another family just like ours.
Mark and Lisa Carter
p.s. Good Luck with the biking!!
I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for you helping my mother with her $49,000 levy on Social Security Benefits. She also had a $2,300 levy against her bank account for the same reason. Getting that money released back into her account was a great blessing. After years of wrestling with the IRS over this matter, your work was quite amazing. Keep up the great work.

I wanted to take a minute and thank you for the fine work you did for my wife and I regarding our situation with IRS. There have been times in the past couple of years that this situation seemed completely overwhelming and without resolution, but accepting your services took a great deal of that worry out of our personal equation. For that alone I am most grateful! It’s an interesting experience dealing with the Service as there seems generally to be no rhyme or reason to their logic and decisions. Having you on our side allowed us to set that kind of issue aside. Logic worked for us and intelligent decisions were ours to make from that point forward and not theirs.
Our situation arose from three sources:
1) My flagging health situation.
2) Circumstances outside our control in the economy.
3) Our own sometimes poor management of resources.
Sometimes even those, “in the business”, make poor choices based on current assumptions and it can prove to be somewhat disastrous. I’ve been down that road now and can see that prudence dictates that we must make more allowance for the unknown future. Thank you for getting us on the path to eliminate the current burden. Thank you also for getting us on a path to keep us current. It’s a two edged sword when it comes to taxes, last year’s and this year’s and it will always be that way. Thank you for the gentle reminder to stay the course.
