MY FAVORITE VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS SUCCESS STORY

I received a call from a close business friend that was in need of serious tax help. This man happens to be a very famous movie star and is well known in the entertainment world. He had just received a $64,000 bank levy. After investigating his case, and speaking with our lead tax attorney, I advised him that we would not only keep it quiet but we would also get the levy lifted. Amazingly, the Victory Tax Solutions team was able to lift his levy within 12 hours of our first call!!!  His final resolution is an Offer In Compromise. Cheers, to the amazing team of experienced professionals at Victory Tax Solutions.  

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

WHY I BECAME A TAX ATTORNEY

I became a tax attorney because I enjoy coming up with tangible solutions to complex problems. There are so many areas of the law where the ultimate answer is determined by a long, cumbersome process (e.g. juries). In tax, although the analysis may be complex, you can always determine the right answer and understand how you got there. Providing that certainty for my clients is extremely rewarding.

Why I love working at Victory Tax Solutions

I love working where I know the client comes first. Every conversation about a given case begins and ends with what can we do to put our clients in the most favorable tax situation. I enjoy developing close ties with my client. I am keenly aware and focused on what is most important to them.  And, it really feels great knowing  the work I’m doing is making a difference

A FAVORITE VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS SUCCESS STORY

My favorite case success was when an elderly gentleman came to me so frustrated out of his mind because of a total tax debt of 700,000. After our investigation, we deemed it best to submit an Offer In Compromise. Our fantastic legal team negotiated it and got it accepted for $12,000. He now calls and chats with me from time to time, telling me about his days with his new wife.

 

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

The reason for my love of working at Victory is simple: I get to help people survive when all seems lost. I am a former United States Marine. I especially enjoy the fact that I get to help in-service and prior-service members. We, on a daily basis, have the pleasure of working with men and women here stateside, and overseas in combat zones. We take pride in knowing that we are helping those who should be focused on coming home. I enjoy helping the men and women fighting for our country, and look forward to meeting and helping future clients that have served.

Why I became a Tax Preparer

At first, all I wanted was some work. Once I started crunching numbers, I found that I could prepare taxes quite well and enjoyed the more difficult types of returns. This eventually lead to my pursuit of my Masters in Accounting, and my desire to help people who need reliable tax help.

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

The team at Victory Tax Solutions was friendly and helpful as soon as I arrived. They have fun and work hard to get things done, and done right.

PARALEGAL

SUCCESS STORY:

A hardworking couple received a levy notice just days before their first child was born. They were both scared and surprised since the notice seemed to have come out of the blue. We investigated their file with the IRS and discovered that a return from years back was never filed. We were able to quickly prepare the return and submit it. This prevented the IRS from garnishing their bank account. It felt great to received so many thank-you’s from the clients and I was so happy that we turned around a bad situation for the client and their new baby!

Why I love working at Victory Tax Solutions 

I have always admired the high ethical values that Victory Tax Solutions holds. So many companies are out there to make a buck and take advantage of taxpayer’s. I knew from the start of my Victory career that we are not one of those organizations. Our clients are our friends and we only have their best interests at heart, and always will. That’s what I love! The amount of respect and care we show to each and every client is a given and I’m proud to work for a company that has the knowledge to help just about anyone with tax liabilities. Victory Tax Solutions is your answer to your IRS problems.

A FAVORITE VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS SUCCESS STORY

A recent client hadn’t filed his taxes for six years due to depression after the passing of his wife. He was receiving threatening letters claiming he owed about $10,000 to the IRS. We brought him into compliance by filing all of his taxes and through the great work of our team, we turned the gentlemen’s $10,000 liability into a refund of $14,000. I loved it!

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

I enjoy working for Victory because we are a very family oriented company. We even consider each other family! This brings an even higher level of trust and essential communication to the forefront and produces the most favorable outcome for our clients. I have not worked for a company before which has an owner and co-workers who have this much integrity!

FAVORITE CASE:

My favorite case success has come from a panicked truck driver who had just received a wage garnishment notice from the IRS. His ex-wife had been handling all his finances, including filing his tax returns... or so he thought. We initiated our standard investigation. We uncovered years of un-filed tax returns and over $1,000,000 of tax liability. THIS WAS A TOTAL SURPRISE TO OUR CLIENT!  After extensive negotiations, our tax attorney successfully arranged a $335.00 monthly payment. Our client is extremely grateful for the results our team delivered in resolving this serious situation. We met his goal which he said was to “just drive”... Mission Accomplished!!!

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

Helping people over the phone can be a very challenging occupation. There is a general mistrust when you cannot meet eye-to-eye. Overcoming that obstacle and resolving serious tax situations is personally very satisfying. All of us at Team Victory work very closely together to allow our clients to be able to sleep at night with a great peace of mind.

My favorite Success Story

My favorite Victory Tax Solutions success story was helping to resolve an issue for a truck driver who found his wages being garnished for a tax liability from a different state for years he didn’t live there.  We actually found out there was fraud involved and were able to get the garnishment removed almost immediately and the debt removed.  The best part was how elated he was because he was caring for a disabled child and the garnishment would have made that impossible.   Our Client Tax Attorneys solved the problem almost instantly but the best part was how happy our client was.  I still smile every time I think about him and his family.

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

 I really enjoy working at Victory Tax Solutions because I’ve always loved helping people.  In my role, I get to work with the best team in the industry (our results speak for themselves) and help clients make sense of an overwhelming, complicated problem.  It is an incredibly rewarding feeling to lift the heavy burden clients are going through and make it more manageable.  I may not get to meet them face to face very often, but their smiles are clearly visible through the phone!

success Story

I received a call from a couple out of upstate New York, and they were concerned about how they were being treated by the IRS. They are farmers, and operate as such daily. The IRS was convinced that they should have been operating as a hobby farm, which reduces the ability to claim a majority of their expenses. Long story short, we fought on their behalf, and reduced their tax liability from $100,000 to nothing. I am so incredibly proud of the team that I work with, and the fact that we are not afraid to correct the IRS.

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

I love working at Victory Tax Solutions because I enjoy helping people, and I sleep well at night knowing that our clients come first.

MY FAVORITE SUCCESS STORY

A client came to Victory owing $20,000 in back taxes to the IRS. The attorney came up with an action plan and submitted information about the tax issue. We got the taxes that were owed reduced and then filed the clients tax returns. After all of the work our attorneys had to go through the client received a refund. They went from owing $20,000 in back taxes to the IRS to receiving a $12,000 refund. It is amazing what you can do with a little help from the people here at Victory Tax Solutions.

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT VICTORY TAX SOLUTIONS

Victory Tax Solutions truly puts the needs of their clients first. The staff works fast and efficiently, and has fun while doing so. It is great working with a team that is so driven.
