I contacted your firm and Ryan **, Esq. was assigned my case. Mr. ** was very professional and detailed in his explanation of my tax case. I was attempting to have my 2007 and 2008 back taxes matter resolved after getting a Lien letter from both the IRS and the State of Maryland. Mr. ** was able to get me a 5-year repayment plan for my MD back taxes when on my own I have only been able to get a 3-year plan which made my payments too expensive to afford.
As far as my Federal back taxes are concerned, Mr. ** was able to stop the IRS from placing a lien on my bank accounts and garnishing my paycheck and after extensive research and paperwork, was able to prove my non-collectability and have my back taxes put into a non-collectible status. I would highly recommend J. David Tax Law over the likes of Optima tax (I tried them) because they successful handle both State and Federal tax matters. Mr. ** and his team were great in keeping me informed with calls, voice message, and emails. I was never in the dark as to what was going on with my case. Thank you, Ryan.
Mr. Coates, thank you for your kind words and the opportunity to represent you!
I have been pursued by the IRS for many years since my tax debt had gotten out of hand and I was completely unable to pay it and I had received garnishment threats and liens by the dozens.. At one point I had to file bankruptcy since they were making life unbearable and it wiped out about $200K+ of my debt.. But I was still stuck with over $260K in tax debt and saw no end.. It was to the point that I thought I was going to have a heart attack as it was affecting my life so much and the stress was almost unbearable.
I hate to admit, but at one point I even decided I would just hang on as long as I could and then when they swept down to ruin me, I would just end my life.. There was not a night I went to bed and did not have trouble sleeping worrying about if my bank account would be swept the next day.. This has gone on for almost 19 years and it was to the point my sister offered to just let me move in with her and get a small job just to get some emotional relief. I received a letter again October 2018 from the IRS stating my debt at almost $300K and was about to give up..
I went online and came across the J David Tax Law firm among many others. Their firm had received a high amount of 5 star ratings and amazing reviews and the other firms not so much.. After checking out several different firms, I finally decided to go with them.. I've always wondered if the reviews weren't "staged." How does one ever know? All I can tell you is that THIS WAS THE BEST DECISION I'VE EVER MADE IN MY LIFE!!! I spoke with one of their attorneys, Chris **, who was assigned to my case and was immediately relieved when he outlined what he thought was going to happen after I had spoken just briefly with him.. I have been mostly current with my taxes and all of the debt was from old taxes that I had never addressed..
Long story short, he contacted the IRS and got transcripts and found that over $260K of my taxes were going to expire Dec 2019 due to the statute of limitations for them to collect.. He somehow managed to get me into noncollectible status within a 2 weeks in Oct 2018 and I got confirmation of this from the IRS stating that they would contact me "annually" to see if I was able to pay anything toward the debt. Chris explained that this meant I would not hear form them again until Oct 2019.. A WHOLE YEAR WITHOUT THEM HARASSING ME!!! It is now July 2019 and I have had peace of mind for the first time in over 18 years.. By the time October 2019 rolls around I may have to pay them a small amount based on income and ability to pay, but at that point I will only have to pay them for 2 months until the taxes expire. I think I can handle that LOL..
All I can say is, if you have a tax problem that is ruining your life, don't suffer another minute... CALL THESE PEOPLE!!! Trust me, you don't know what you're doing and these people know EXACTLY how to take care of this problem.. If I had tried to take care of this myself, just like in the past, not only would I have been paying the IRS exorbitant amounts of money this last year, but probably would have screwed up my rights by signing something I shouldn't have that gave up some of the rights I would have had otherwise. You can't be too careful with the IRS.. You need people who know "exactly" what to do. I have not heard from the IRS since last October and I'm sure I won't hear from them again until the upcoming October, if then.
I have had many small questions for Chris in the interim and he has emailed me back quickly with answers to keep my stress level down even though my contract with them has been fulfilled.. I CAN'T RECOMMEND THESE PEOPLE HIGHLY ENOUGH!!! I will follow up this review when next December rolls around to confirm that the nightmare is over and give a complete summary.. I just can't tell you what a relief this has been and how nice it is to be able to relax for the first time in 18 years knowing everything is being taken care of and that they have my back if I need them down the road... Don't make the same mistake I did and live with unbearable stress any longer.. CALL THEM!!!! You'll be glad you did!!!!
Robert, thank you for sharing your story and your kind words! We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
My experience with JDTL was a very positive one. I am self employed and had several years back taxes due and was getting very threatening mail from the IRS, even to the point they were about to freeze my checking accounts. I had notices of Intent to Levy my personal accounts and notices of Intent to Lein on any property I had. I was overwhelmed and fighting a battle I did not understand. JDTL addressed the IRS on my behalf and I never even had to deal with the IRS! I owed federal and state back taxes and I had pushed it to the limit. Something had to be done!
From the very beginning, after our phone interview, I knew I had the right people on my side. I had already gone to two different CPAs for help who wanted ME to contact the IRS and wanted ME to do all of the leg work. They were no help at all. I didn't know what to do. During my initial interview with JDTL, I knew I had the right firm. They were very knowledgeable about my situation and offered me information from the standpoint of where I was currently, deep in debt to the IRS! I was to the point of tears and fears, for sure, before I contacted JDTL. I could not afford to pay my taxes, much less a tax attorney. No problem with JDTL. They set up a payment plan with me that I could afford and that made a huge difference. They assured me from the beginning that I did have options. They worked directly with me throughout the process and they worked with the IRS on my behalf.
I found JDTL's staff to be very professional and at the same time, very personable. My representative, Charles "Cole" **, was a Godsend. He kept me informed of every correspondence he made on my behalf to the IRS. He guided me through the understanding of my options. He followed up promptly to my phone calls or emails, and he "handled me with care". That is exactly what I was looking for and JDTL delivered.
Long story short, I owed over $30,000 taxes, penalties and interested to the IRS. I was found to be "non-collectable" on greater than 90% of that amount. Now, I just have to follow through with each year as it comes and keep current on my taxes in the future. I can never express enough appreciation to JDavid Tax Law and their very capable staff! I got back my life!!
Thank you for the kind words and the opportunity to serve you Vickie!
My tax nightmare was the most stressful experience of my entire life. I didn’t know what to do or how to move forward. J. David Tax Law (specifically Chris **) was a God send. He completely took my worries away and worked extremely diligent with my case to get me the best results possible. I had worked with another company who took my money and did nothing for me. Nothing. I felt completely ripped off and lost. This was not the case with J. David Tax Law. They were definitely worth the money for my peace of mind. I would hire them again and highly recommend them to everyone seeking help and resolution with their tax debts.
Michelle, you were a pleasure to work with and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

My name Pamela **. During the summer of 2018, I received several letters from the IRS for past debts. I have never denied my tax debt, put had been making monthly payments on my own. The IRS only sees your social security not the person behind the number. They didn’t know that I had gotten a divorce, had to move out my home, and lost a parent that had been sick for over a year. They don’t see or give educators more tax breaks for all that we do for students out of our pockets on a daily basis. So I found myself one day in August wondering how am I going to communicate with the IRS. You can never reach anyone on the phone, and you feel so helpless.
I went to Ask.com and searched for tax attorneys. I reviewed several online ratings and call J. David Tax Law and Associates. In this age where there are so many scams, I was leery of providing any information to someone over the phone, that I could not go to a local office, and have a face to face conversation with. From that initial phone call to where I am today J. David Tax Law and their associates have been extremely professional. They have called, emailed and kept me abreast of everything involved with my case. They made it affordable for me to retain their services, and it has been worth every dime. Thank you Michelle for not seeing me as a tax evader, but seeing me as an average American citizen, a mother, grandmother, veteran and an educator, with struggles that have been real.
It was a pleasure to assist you Pamela! We appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

The IRS made me so scared, and intimidated me horribly. I then emailed J. David Tax Law. My anxiety was a 10. They were so nice and caring I immediately relaxed and in a few days.... It was all over and I didn't pay a dime to the IRS! Thanks for my life back!
Julie, thank you for being a great client and the opportunity to serve you!

Company contacted me regarding my case. I'm working on a solution with them and I will update this review once the case is over.
I hired J David Tax law about a year ago and had an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE experience which resulted in a $38,000 PENALTY.. I don’t even know where to start.. As an international student in the U.S., I wasn’t familiar with international tax laws and reporting requirements. I realized that I needed to file an informational form (did not owe any taxes) regarding gifts received from a foreign person. In order to avoid any penalties that may be given and be defended in the case of a penalty, I paid J David Tax law about 10 times more money compared to an experienced CPA who would do a better job filling out and filing this 5 page form.
After the form was filled out, they directed me into submitting this form to the wrong address even though I told the attorney that may not be the correct address based on the information on the official IRS site. On top of that, if filed late, the IRS requires the taxpayer to submit a letter for reasonable cause in order to waive any penalty that may be given. When I asked why we did not submit the explanation letter given that I had valid reasons, I was told that the penalty would only apply to trust funds and not me. It still doesn’t sound too bad right?
Couple weeks after the form was filed and I was assured that a penalty would be very unlikely in a case like this, my attorney for this case, Ryan sent me a follow up email saying that he contacted the IRS and there was no penalty assessed to me and he was closing the case. Guess what happened? 2 weeks ago, I received a $38,000 penalty from the IRS on something that I didn’t even owe any taxes on. You heard it right, $38,000. I immediately contacted J David tax law to express my concerns and ask to take action against this immediately. I was told my case was closed and I would need to pay twice the money I initially paid them to help me with this issue.
The only reason I hired this company was for this exact reason. First to avoid the potential penalty by filing in the most accurate way and sending a reasonable cause letter explaining my situation before having to receive anything from the IRS, all of which they had failed to do. And second TO DEFEND ME in the case of a penalty. They assured me many times over the phone that the penalty would be very unlikely, and that if it were to happen, I would be defended in the unlikely scenario of receiving one.
At this point, they started to refer me to the contract and try to justify their reasons for trying to charge me twice the amount that I initially paid them to do the very exact thing they were hired to do in the first place. Who in their right mind would pay 10 to 15 times more to file a form that most accountants can file more accurately? They didn’t even include my middle name on an official tax form and said that it was fine. If you’re still thinking of working with these people, MAKE SURE EVERY SINGLE THING DISCUSSED AND AGREED UPON OVER THE PHONE IS ON THE CONTRACT. Otherwise, they will try to screw you over and get even more money out of you.
I have direct proof of the claims I have made above in written emails sent to me directly by the attorney. I have seen above that when it comes to the other 1 star reviews, the firm simply claimed that they have never worked with the people leaving these negative reviews. In order to avoid such defamation, I can share my proof with anyone interested. I was completely blindfolded by all the good reviews and made the IRREVERSIBLE MISTAKE of working with these people. Choosing to work with this firm ended up costing me a $38,000 penalty that could have been avoided. SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE AND FIND ANOTHER LAW FIRM TO WORK WITH.
I was 20,000 dollars in owed back taxes, and I was unable to pay, I sought legal help from J David tax law and they helped me negotiate with the IRS and my debt was found non collectible because of my financial hardship that I was experiencing at the time. I don’t think I could have done this without their help!
I am so pleased at how this company took the bull by its horns. I've tried other companies and spent thousands of dollars with little to no results. I wish to say a big THANK YOU to Cole and all the attorneys who made my life so much easier to live with. I can sleep well knowing that they represented me from start to finish. I can't mentioned the amount that was forgiven. I am sure you can figure it out by the words I'm using. Thank You again J. David Tax Law. John
