Every Tax Problem has a Solution - Let's Find Yours!

L&W has been helping taxpayers get back on track with the IRS for over 50 years and we can help you too!

Tax Return Preparation

Every year our expert tax preparation team of licensed CPAs & IRS Enrolled Agents help over 1,000 clients file their tax returns. We currently have a small number of openings for new clients. Give us a call and we’ll let you know if you might be a good fit for our firm!

Unfiled Back Tax Returns

Whether you have 2 or 20 years of unfiled returns L&W can help you get back on track with the IRS and state. We know all of the rules and, depending on the situation, may even be able to get you out of filing some of the returns and possibly even remove some of the penalties!

Tax Debt Relief

The L&W team specializes in all of the IRS tax debt relief programs including the Offer in Compromise, Installment Agreement, Innocent Spouse, Penalty Abatement and more! We will work with you to find the right solution to end your issue once and for all.

Payroll Tax Issues

Running a business is hard enough as it is (before the IRS gets involved). L&W specializes in helping businesses of all sizes who find themselves struggling with tax problems. We will work with you to assess the problem and create an action plan to resolve the tax issue.

Liens, Levies, and Garnishments

If the IRS has started collection action on you it’s time to get representation! They have a tremendous arsenal of tools to get you to comply including the Federal Tax Lien, the bank levy, and the wage garnishment. The good news is once you hire L&W the IRS will have to go through us to get to you.

Audit Representation

In 2023 we are expecting to see a huge increase in IRS audits. Believe it or not we have a special team inside L&W that absolutely loves battling the IRS in audits! Don’t get taken advantage of in an audit, get proper representation that will fight for your rights.

We're Tax Relief Experts

When you hire Lawler & Witkowski CPAs, you’re hiring a team of nationally respected tax relief experts, tireless researchers, and aggressive advocates. Our team is small, and we limit the case load of each tax professional so we can maintain a high level of client service. As a result we cannot take on every case, but we do offer a free case consultation to see if your case is a good fit for our firm.

Most people have no idea these programs exist…and they could change your life.

Dealing with the IRS is, at best, challenging, stressful, and frustrating. At worst, it can destroy your life by causing your credit score to drop, your bank accounts drained, liens placed against your possessions, and your income confiscated by a wage or income levy.

At Lawler & Witkowski we specialize in tax debt relief which means we’re experts in resolving issues relating to unfiled tax returns, unpaid taxes, liens, levies, foreign bank account reporting, audit representation, and any other type of tax controversy.

There are several programs available, that you may qualify for, that could end your problem once and for all. You could certainly try to navigate these programs on your own, but let us offer you a word of caution. Not having a full understanding of a program could cause you to pay thousands of dollars to the IRS you may not have needed to.

You don’t hire us to fill out forms… you could do that on your own. You hire us because we know the critical intricacies in each program and how to position you (using the IRS’s own rules) to qualify for a program that will end your IRS nightmare.

Offer in Compromise

The OIC is the IRS’s “Let’s Make A Deal” program that allows you to pay an amount you can afford to satisfy your entire tax liability.

Installment Agreement

We can secure an installment agreement with the IRS to allow monthly payments on your tax liability (that you can afford).

Penalty Abatement

There are two types of Penalty Abatement - First time abatement (FTA) and abatement for reasonable cause.

Innocent Spouse

Innocent Spouse Relief exists to alleviate unjust situations where one spouse is clearly not responsible for the tax liability.

Partial Pay Installment Agreement

A PPIA is a payment plan that allows a taxpayer to pay off their outstanding tax debt over time, while paying less than the full amount owed


Taxes are often dischargeable in bankruptcy. Back taxes, interest, and penalties may be wiped out by filing.
