Darla was amazing and truly saved my families future! That tax burden would have buried us to a point of no return. Thankfully she was there to help and did an absolutely amazing job! I researched several different companies before deciding on Taxpayer Defense and I highly recommend Darla and taxpayer defense above and beyond anyone else out there!
