About Us

Timberline’s ethical approach to client representation provides the best possible resolution to Federal and State tax liabilities. Our experience and expertise moves our clients past their stressful financial situations as quickly as possible. Whether it is negotiating a release of garnishment, lowering a monthly Installment Agreement, or working with the IRS to settle a tax debt, our Enrolled Agent’s high standards of representation guide you through the process efficiently and effectively.

“We exist to elevate you from a case number to a unique person or business in need of tax liability relief.” Our goal is to ensure we handle your tax liabilities as quickly as possible and that we teach you how to avoid future issues with taxing authorities. Timberline’s strategies are not one size fits all. We study your unique financial situation and create a strategy and plan that is personalized to your situation. In all cases our first step is to protect you. And your good name.

We are so confident that our expertise and proven process will bring you a sigh of relief that we offer a money back guarantee. If you hire us and within the first 15 days you are not satisfied with Timberline Tax Group’s representation, we will refund any money paid.

We Protect Your Time – Dealing with IRS and State tax authorities take time, much of it on hold as you wait to speak with an agent. If you call more than once, you will likely have to deal with more than one agent. A Timberline tax resolution advisor can perform these tasks for you.

We Meet Time-Sensitive Demands – Virtually any IRS issue requires immediate action. We can offer a tax solution that’s affordable to you and expeditiously meets their established timeline.

We Clarify Your Situation – Our team of tax resolution advisors are well-versed in IRS and State tax procedures and know how to secure an affordable, legal solution to your tax problem. There may be several options for which you may be eligible, but typically one will be best. We will explore the available options and determine what’s right for you.

We Find the Right Solution – There are several tax resolutions for which you may be eligible, but the IRS is not required to share these with you. Our Enrolled Agents can carefully examine your options to ensure that you can pay what you are legally required. We’ll then fill out all of the required paperwork completely and accurately on your behalf.

We Guarantee Your Satisfaction – If within the first 15 days you are not satisfied with Timberline Tax Group’s representation, we will refund any money paid. No questions asked.

At Timberline, we take the time to get to know your unique tax situation individually. We then use this information to not only find the best tax resolution possible but then represent your good name with the IRS, elevating you from being just another number to an individual, family or business in need of immediate tax relief assistance.
