Federal and Michigan Tax Debt Relief
Get Out from Under Your Tax Burden
The IRS and the state of Michigan do not even need to get a court judgment to freeze your bank accounts, file tax liens against your property, garnish your sages, seize your tax refunds or seize your assets. And that’s just the beginning of what they can do. Owing money to the IRS or the state is a different world from dealing with private collection agencies. Government tax collectors will not go away, and if you ignore them, you can find yourself losing everything you worked for – without much warning.
When you need help, you need it now, before your situation gets any worse. Here are some of the actions Ayar Law, tax attorneys in the Detroit, Michigan area, can take on your behalf to protect your money and your property – and stop the harassment.

Even if these actions have already been taken against you, it is possible to get them reversed if you take action fast enough and speak with a qualified, focused Michigan tax attorney. Read More
