My accountant of 11 years told me time and time again over the course of 9 or 10 of those years that filing without paying is not advisable. I hadn't paid what I owed for 2009 and 2010 returns. I owed 15k which grew to 19k. My accountant was right but agreed to find me a good tax attorney. He found Strategic Tax Lawyers in Calif. He said they were good, and that they helped out a family member of his. He was rightagain. My tax mess was straightened out in 1 month. They set me up on a low payment plan and gave me a plan to move forward without recreating the mess. Glad to have them on my side.
