Stephan Brewer and his staff are extremely responsive and were patient with all of my questions and concerns. I have been doing my taxes for nearly 10 years with TurboTax and pretty happy with the result. This year something seemed really off, even after I paid for the highest product and used TurboTax's help line that connected me with a "pro" who went through my return. I wasn't confident my taxes were accurate so I came to Legacy Tax for help. I'm so glad I went with this professional group because they saved me approximately $3,000! I would absolutely use Legacy Tax in the future as they guarantee their work and were able to answer my questions in a way that made sense to a lay person.

I received a collection notice from the IRS which was quite surprising as my taxes were being paid by the employer. I tried to contact the IRS but didn’t get any replies. Things at IRS are quite slow, tedious and time consuming. You need a lot of patience to deal with them, something that I really don’t have. I talked to the payroll department at my company and they had no clue on why I was getting notices from the IRs. A colleague recommended Legacy Tax & Resolution Services as she had used them to file her taxes before. Working with this company was a positive experience. They contacted the IRS and found out that our payroll department had made a mistake in calculating the tax bracket for my income. I wasn’t the only one affected and three other managers from my company had similar issues although they hadn’t received notices from the IRS. My company employed this firm and they helped us sort out the taxes with the IRS. It was decided that the unpaid taxes would be adjusted with the salaries over the next one year and I am fairly happy with the outcome.
