Forgive me for being blunt, but when it comes to resolving issues with the IRS, you can get in a bloody shark tank … or …

You can work with one of the most trusted tax professionals in Sarasota and the state of FL … You decide.

Tax Services

We have the expertise and knowledge you are looking for in a tax professional and can help you navigate your options.

Tax Problem Resolution

Let our team of experienced tax relief experts help you find the light at the end of the tunnel.

And even if you don’t live in the local area (if you’ll pardon my bias), here’s why you should immediately email or call me…

When it comes to tax resolution and negotiating with government institutions, you can’t afford to mess around – nor can you afford to get in bed with “sales rooms” masquerading as a professional tax office. There’s simply too much at stake. And there are too many landmines along the path.

My name is Maurie West. I am a licensed CPA, EA, and I can represent you in front of the IRS. I’ve been doing so on behalf of clients (both local and national) now for years.

But what you DON’T need is to be bombarded by ruthless sales pitches and overbearing junk mail simply because your situation was picked up by some database somewhere, and you were targeted as a “hot lead.” Yes, this is how these operations can afford to advertise on national television and radio. They have a sales system, and they work it. Very hard.

Here’s the dirty secret of the national tax relief industry: Almost all of your contact will be with a commissioned salesperson. A closer. And their mission is to close YOU.

When people come to our “door” for help with back taxes and penalties and any number of issues with their tax situation, they’re not just looking for someone to negotiate on their behalf and get them through the IRS process.

They’re looking for a reliable tax professional in Sarasota who has the experience and know-how they can trust, who will do the hard work of resolving their situation, so they don’t have to.

It can be difficult to know where to begin with tax problems. Unfiled tax returns, missed deadlines, overdue payments… That’s why we’re here!

We’ll provide you with the best possible service, so you can have peace of mind about your tax standing with the IRS.

Kate Noel

I have been petrified of dealing with IRS for way too long. I chose to work with Maurie at WesTax based on his Google reviews, and I was so impressed. Maurie is kind, understanding, and supportive. He is tackling my issues head-on and working diligently to straighten things out. I felt like a gigantic weight lifted off my shoulders since my first meeting with Maurie. He is extremely industrious and has a high level of expertise. I would recommend Wes Tax to anyone looking to have a competent and trustworthy CPA on your side.
