I received some nice words from a client who had a direct dealing with our Emergency Management Team, and it just made my day because often times, this department doesn’t get nearly the credit it deserves.
The main task of EMT is what we call the Emergency Levy Release. Our EMT Case Specialists work quickly to stop the IRS’ enforcement action, mainly levies that are already in place on bank accounts, wages, etc. Although the work they do is very important, more often than not, EMT is in the background working behind the scenes to get levies released while other Case Specialists work on the client’s Offer in Compromise.
Sean Stewart, of Bowie, MD, came to us because he owed the IRS approximately $43,000 in back taxes. And the IRS, in turn, slapped a levy on his wages. His file was expedited to EMT and the folks there got right to work. One phone call to the IRS told us that Mr. Stewart hadn’t filed all of his tax returns. He was immediately made aware of that fact and contracted us to prepare those returns for him.
“JK Harris really worked quickly and efficiently, keeping me abreast of what was going on with my case and kept me with updated correspondence relentlessly,” Mr. Stewart wrote.
Once his file was back with EMT, his Case Specialist went to work negotiating his Installment Agreement, which would enable him to pay his debt in monthly payments. Once that IA was in place, the IRS agreed to release Mr. Stewart’s wage levy.
“Some people say ‘you could’ve done it yourself,’ but I say, it’s the peace of mind knowing that someone that has experience is doing it…Thank you JK Harris,” Mr. Stewart said.
You are welcome, Mr. Stewart. Thank you for taking the time to send us such kind words.
