Tax Representation

Installment Agreements, Offer in Compromise, and Audit Representations


We are fortunate to have Robert Mosher, CPA as an independent consultant in our office. His specialty is assisting individuals and businesses when they have tax liabilities with the Mississippi Department of Revenue or the IRS.  


If you have tax trouble or liabilities, Robert may be able to assist with an offer in compromise, allowing you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe.  He can represent you in dealing with the state or IRS when they are looking at your circumstances including, ability to pay, income, expenses and assets.  An offer in compromise may be an option if you can't pay your full tax liability or doing so creates financial hardship.


Robert has been a Mississippi licensed CPA since 1979. He has extensive experience in state and federal tax law, state and federal tax issues, small business accounting, and Deepwater Horizon settlement claims.  


If you have IRS tax debt and need help, please call our office to schedule a free consultation with Robert.
