Thank you Bob Crane, Ivana Gvozdic, John Bove and Ed Smith at Fix Your Tax Problems Inc.
My tax problems began well over a decade ago. Legal problems from a bad divorce while being a small business owner was a sure recipe for financial disaster. From delinquent and incomplete tax payments to years not filed, not to mention the liens and levy's the IRS had imposed, I had it all... It felt like I was in a completely hopeless situation. After my first conversation with Bob Crane at Ameritax (back then) I could feel a sense of relief and confidence that everything was going to be alright. He was patient and sympathetic to my situation but stern in making sure that I stuck with what he felt was the best way to approach my tax problem. This is exactly what I needed since I was clueless about the complexity of the tax predicament that I was in. Bob was able to keep the IRS at bay while I worked through my train wreck of a life. Ed and John did a great job in filing all my past and present taxes throughout the years. Fast forward nearly 14 years and I'm happy to say that Ivana (Total Rock Star) submitted an Offer in Compromise that was literally less than pennies on the dollar and after a counter by the IRS my tax liability went from about $140k down to $2352... The day John called me with the news, I was in total disbelief as to how this could be true. Holy #%&# ... Amazing!!!! Still pinching myself.
Bob and the team at Fix Your Tax Problems went way beyond of fixing my past tax problems, they educated me throughout the whole process and the importance of staying current with quarterly estimated payments.
Thank you so much Bob, John, Ivana and Ed for getting me back my life and preparing me for a fresh start.
I like to believe that everyone should get a second chance, I just never thought I would get one when it came to this.
It isn't often that I write a testimonial, but Bob Crane is truly deserving of the highest praise. I'm a successful businesswoman who's been working on an unresolved IRS issue for a several years with no success. I finally contacted Bob and he literally took care of my problem in a day (yes, a day!). What a relief. He not only handled it, but walked me through everything I needed to know. I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to recommend Bob and his company and he'll be the first person I'll call if the need arises.
Due to my own ignorance and being frozen by the overwhelming magnitude of my tax mess I ended up calling fix your tax problem, inc. I went from military income to a high paying job in the merchant marine all good except I never changed my tax exemptions. I ignored it for a few years, overwhelmed. I wasn't being careless or childish, I just didn't know where to start. Or how. I hired an accountant who got me squared away and then we could see my mess clearly. Lynn Smith at S.O.S recommended FYTP. I spoke with Bob Crane and he didn't make lofty promises but instead was honest and direct. He had a plan for me and a good record of success. I felt hope for the first time in a long time. Mr. Crane had a plan, he explained it to me, I agreed. This wasn't 'pay zero for a million dollar tax mess' but a realistic and attainable goal. Mr Crane handed me over to Ivana. She was now my contact, she would give me assignments of documents to gather or fill out, when I did I'd upload them to their system. The transparency of this company is amazing , everything we did was on the server and I could see it 24/7. Ivana John and Cheri have a history with and a depth of knowledge of the IRS that is unmatched. They understand what they need and want. Fix Your tax Problem made me feel like I was on a winning team. I was excited for my family's future. As a customer you are going to work, they need your help to win, but if you do as they ask, as soon as possible your case progresses quickly for the government. Without giving my specifics FYTP got my bill down 65k. My final bill was now surmountable. IRS gave me 5 months to pay it off. It wasn't easy, I had to really change my management of money and grow up a bit. But now thanks to FYTP I have no one haunting me, my life is squared away and peaceful. Stop hesitating, make the call, find peace. Thank you.
Big thanks to Bob and his team of professionals who stand head and shoulders as the real deal above the many charlatans in this business of tax issue resolution. With a principal of about $60K the interest and penalities had my IRS debt escalating into six figures rapidly by the stage I contacted Bob and his team.
At the first sign of heavy rainfall, in essence the IRS placing a rather stringent levy on my earnings I found Bob after some research and by sheer luck managed to pluck his outfit's name from the dizzying array of largely false saviors cluttering the marketplace. Mind you, I had already wasted time and money with a reputable but none the less ineffective tax attorney by that point. Bob wasted little time assessing the situation adeptly and helped me file the appropriate documentation to put the IRS completly on hold. I never gave up a single penny of my earnings to the IRS for back taxes either then or from the point forward. Ultimately, with the IRS safely at bay the statute ran out on my debt and thanks to Bob and his team's good work I am finally 100% free of the debt.
With the plethora of outfits advertising on the major news radio stations I often listen to I am frequently reminded of my good fortune in finding the one that actually delivers on its promise of resolving tax issues successfully. I cannot tell you how many friends have confided in me about their dashed hopes after wasting time and money on outfits that simply do not get it done. Bottom line: don't waste time and money on amatuers when a call to Bob and his team will prove both cost effective and most importantly the path to freeing yourself from the finacial stress of owing the IRS.
Thank goodness our Employee Benefits program referred us to him. Bob has done nothing but put me at ease during this very stressful time. He has given me great advice and has put my stress level back down. I'm very grateful to have him in my corner.
Thank you to you and your team BOB!
After 10 years of financial stress and owing the IRS $70,000.00, I was living in fear, hopeless about my future and completely ignorant of what to do next. The IRS put liens on my income and our bank accounts and left us nothing to live on.
Emotionally I felt beaten down, angry and overwhelmed. I'm a private small business owner and there was absolutely no way I could afford to pay what they said I owed. Then we found Bob Crane. From the first telephone conversation Bob's easy going way and sense of humor put our minds at ease and gave us a sense of hope. He worked with us for an amount of money that we could afford. We experienced Bob's unbelievable patience with us as he explained (for probably the hundredth time) that this CAN be worked out, how the process works, what we needed to do specifically, which papers to fill out, when...etc., etc. At tax time the staff taught us how to prepare adequately and helped us every step of the way.
Today finally...the good news arrived! The IRS accepted our Offer in Compromise!!! Unbelievable! Fix Your Tax Problems and staff, Louise and Ed work very very hard. They will do their part IF we do ours, and that's the icing on the cake....by doing what they told me to I actually LEARNED how to think differently about my finances and my business which means this will NEVER happen again. They not only "fixed my tax problems," they fixed my thinking errors that led to the issue in the first place.
With the utmost gratitude, thank you Bob, Louise, and Ed for caring and changing our lives for the better!!
I've been meaning to write to you guys for a while. When I called Fix Your Tax Problem a few years back my life was a mess. I avoided looking at my bills every month and felt that my financial troubles would continue forever.
You guys helped me deal with my problems starting with my taxes. Without your professional help and caring attitude I would have never made it. Today I feel I have my life under control.
I am so grateful to Bob and all of his team, Ed and Louise included. I went through a stressful 31/2 year long process of getting back taxes owed to the IRS of over $50,000 reduced down to only having to pay the IRS $3,000.
I did not have the money to pay the back taxes and Bob and his team helped me every step of the way. There were times that I could not see the end in sight, at all, and I wanted to give up. Bob, with his great sense of humor and understanding, (and amazing amount of patience!) patiently, talked me through the process for the hundredth time and always managed to keep me on track to see the end result.
There is no way I would have made it through all of this without his expert insight, advice, knowledge, and encouragement! I am so unbelievably grateful for his patience and understanding and especially for getting the settlement from the IRS that we were hoping and aiming for. A huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I finally feel like I can breathe again after 31/2 years.
Thank you, Bob, for everything! And you too, Ed and Louise!
Ok, Again bob, geeezz i haven't been able to eat correctly since this news, I’m excited and and so joyful! I have so much love in my heart for your honestly and all of you and your teams hard work i can go on and on . I would like to share it with YELP too
I came to Bob and the team way back in 2006. I had a huge tax problem made up of financial hardship and not filing my taxes and had no money to make payments on that debt. I was very much scared to talk to the IRS myself and honestly had no idea where to start. I can remember the first time Bob and I spoke but more specifically, I remember the feeling of calm that came over me about my situation based on the knowledge that this man shared with me regarding my situation and how he would help me, not only with my tax issues but help me to be able to afford his help by assisting me in a payment plan.
After a few discussion and a light amount of paperwork, I was assured that I can feel safe that there would be no garnishments from the checks that paid for my apartment and bills, but that there also would be no fear that someone was going to come to my door taking anything that belong to me. On my mind and heart I knew I had to get this debt from under me. I called Bob and we went over several options and the best one for me was to submit a OIC (Offer In Compromise) . Like before I was scared. I had heard a lot about scams regarding so called tax professionals scamming people desperate to get help with their tax situation and submitting OIC’s that would likely get rejected and although I trusted Bob at that point based on what he did previously, I was still scared of this being a problem. I thought to myself how I barely could gather the funds needed to cover an OIC but from what I had heard from reading the internet supposedly there was only a slight chance the IRS would except.
Bob and his team talked me through everything, they once again assured me that they would not submit an OIC unless I would in fact qualify, they helped me to gather all the documents necessary and told me step by step how this would all happen and the time frame it would happen in.
My end result, 42, 000 in tax debt settled for $5,000! Everything happened the way Bob and his team explained, in the order in which they assured me and the time frame in which they explained. Ten days after I’ve received my good news, I’m still very much in disbelief that now I can go on to live my life free of IRS debt and onto walking a different life financially. This changes everything in my life and I can’t thank Bob and his team enough for all their hard work and patience with me as a scared consumer. I trusted them with something huge in my life and they came through, they are honest, caring, nurturing individuals and they have my business for life.
BOB, JOHN, LOUISE.THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!

God bless you I am forever
I would like to thank you and your staff at AMERITAX for job well done taking care of my case with the IRS.When I was frantic receiving letters from the IRS three years ago, I remember calling those guys that you see on the TV ads.“In trouble with the IRS we’ll solve your tax problems just call 1-800-xxx-xxxx” After investigating these companies and doing a little research I found out that they were NOT the solution and were very expensive.
Finding you on the internet was a blessing and I remember calling you and you walked me through the process. Everything you said was true and correct.
If I ever know of anyone whom might need your services, I will highly recommend you, please use me as a reference anytime in the future.
Again many THANKS!
