For Small Businesses

What our Clients are saying

After running into trouble with the IRS due to a failing small business, I didn’t know where to turn.  I had ignored notices and I owed about $50,000.  Rodney was easy to work with and assured me a solution could be worked out.  In the end the amount I owed was cut in half and I am currently enrolled in payment plan.  I highly recommend the VK Group!
