Years of Experience
Attorney Bob Schaller
Attorney Schaller's Philosophy
Bob’s goal is to help clients to erase or reduce IRS back-taxes. For over 34 years, Schaller has provided clients with high-quality, competitively priced, legal services. In fact, Attorney Schaller wrote the 664-page book on erasing IRS back-taxes.
Bob understands the pressure experienced by taxpayers facing the IRS alone. The IRS may be the world’s toughest collection entity, with the power to levy bank accounts, seize assets, take a taxpayer’s home, garnish wages, and place a Notice of Federal Tax Lien.
