I am writing this letter in appreciation of the services you provided. We came to you after being sent a letter from the IRS stating we owed a very large amount of money and penalties. This was a very stressful experience. However, you were able to meet with us, review the situation and provide us with options and potential outcomes. Your representation on this matter really made the difference. After multiple communications with the IRS on our behalf, submitting necessary documentation, and NOT giving up, we were successful in our appeal! The IRS sent us a letter that stated we in fact owed them $0. We won! The IRS agreed with our supporting documentation and declared that we actually did not owe them after-all. This was absolutely a highlight to this year! Thank you Patrick Sheehan & Associates for a job WELL DONE! We are extremely satisfied with your representation and highly recommend you and Patrick Sheehan & Associates! We could not have been successful without your help and dedication!
Cook County. The IRS selected the client’s tax return for 2011 for audit. The main issue was whether the money the client received from a Nursing Education Loan Repayment Program (NELRP) by the Department of Health and Human Services was taxable income. The IRS took the position that the money the client received under this program was taxable. We won the case for our client after demonstrating that the loan repayments she received are tax free because they were provided for the increased availability of health services in underserved or health professional shortage areas. The IRS agreed with our position and made ZERO changes to the tax return for 2011.
