I live outside of Nashville, Tennessee. I’m an independent trucker. I was in the military. Once I was released from the military, I got into trucking. I bought a rig. Things were going well; I was making lots of money. I bought another rig, and I had a trucking company. My life was really on track. Things were going well. I got married and did the whole family thing. My wife and I had a falling out, and things weren’t too good at that time. I fell behind in my taxes. It was five years of tax debt that I had.
I got a call from my ex-wife and was surprised because we don’t talk. She was mad because her accounts had been frozen, and the IRS was levying her accounts. So I go down and check with the bank, and my accounts had been levied. I contacted Michael Mack immediately, I tried other attorneys and went through the phone book but they all wanted a big retainer for them to represent me in this tax issue. And I’m thinking I don’t have any money; I have no access to my accounts. How am I going to pay for this? Mike got on my case, and I didn’t have to pay him any money down. They released the levy within hours of contacting Michael Mack.
The IRS claimed that I owed them $122,000, and I was wondering how I was going to pay this. When I contacted Michael Mack, he got on my case and negotiated it down to a $5,000 tax debt, and he allowed me to make installment payments. So I was tax free, had installments, and my life was back on track.
