Sometimes you need to have a professional liaise with the IRS on your behalf. We offer this service under a billable hour arrangement. Our fee for it is $200 per billable hour.
Examples of the tasks that fit under this service scope:
- Calling the IRS to inquire about refund status (estimated time 30 minutes).
- Request of tax transcript (estimated time 1 hour).
- Signing and mailing return on behalf of the taxpayer (estimated time 30 minutes).
- Letter to request penalty waiver (estimated time 1 hour).
Because the circumstances of each case and the time required to contact an agent may vary, we do not offer a fixed price for these services.
In order for us to start work on the case, we need to arrange the Power of Attorney (POA) form. Should you choose to engage us, we request a retainer of $400 (2 hours), which would include preparation of the POA, which would allow us to speak to the IRS on your behalf.
