Tyler is an excellent attorney that I highly recommend to anyone who is facing issues with the IRS. Tyler has proven to be exceptional in his ability to identify problems and get them resolved. He can take very complicated information and translate it in an easy to understand way. I feel like I know what is going on when I talk with Tyler, which is not always the case with many other attorneys. — C. Emery
I would express that Tyler DeWitt is as smart, charming, and charismatic as you can imagine an attorney should be. He was very impressive with his strategic methods to resolve the matter in a timely and resourceful manner. Let me say he is my counsel for life and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance. — C. Mark
My husband and I owed over $400,000 to the IRS. My husband’s small business got behind on taxes during the great recession. We were terrified and didn’t know what to do. I was recommended to call DeWitt Law and I’m so glad I did! Our tax liability was reduced by over 85% and we were able to gain a clean slate with the IRS. I recommend calling DeWitt Law if you are in serious tax trouble and want expert advice on what your options are. — Anonymous

IRS CP2000 Notice – What to Do and How to Respond
The Internal Revenue Service’s CP2000 notice is a computer-generated notice received by taxpayers after filing an income tax return.
