Ron Teidel

I am a resident of CA. I have been fighting an issue with the IRS on a refund due me too long. The most recent activity has been a year with the Problem Solving group. I have had two auditors with the group, and both agree the IRS owes me the money. I have all the documentation to support my case, but no legal background or the money to take Goliath to court. I was told that the IRS would not pursue collection activity while I was being assisted by the Problem Solving Group. Guess what, they lied. I have been sent notices of lien filing and notices of levy.

I've heard I can take them to court and request legal fees and damages be a part of the complaint. The IRS has cost me a marriage, unknown credit problems, and inabilty to achieve gainful employment. Yes its still the same old IRS and by admission the Problem Solving Group is powerless and only serves in a research and advisory capacity. No employee of the IRS is going to upset their superiors for the sake of a taxpayer.

Are there any interested pro bono attorneys out there willing to fight the fight? Will even settle for some worthwhile advice if not.



Old IRS problem

I might be able to come up with a suggestion or two; however, I need a little more info:

Is the “Problem Solving Group” you refer to, the “Taxpayer Advocate Service?”

When was the assessment made?

Have you appealed the assessment, and if so, to what branch of the IRS, and when was that?

In what way does your problem involve both a refund due you and a collection problem?
