WHY GOLD PATH?
If you're facing tax issues, you should hire a tax attorney. Lots of people out there claim to be "tax professionals" or "accountants," both of which are job titles that are unregulated and unlicensed, and have no required education or training at all. In fact, many of these folks are just salespeople. In contrast, a tax attorney holds a four-year bachelor's degree and a three-year Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, has passed one or more difficult bar exams, and is licensed to practice law and to litigate. Most importantly for their clients, attorneys are bound by a code of professional responsibility which forbids conflicts of interest, and their discussions with clients are strictly confidential and legally protected. Only attorneys have this privilege.
Finding the right tax attorney is like finding a spouse. You are entrusting someone with the most intimate and sensitive details of your life: how much you earn, how you spend your money, and how family and personal challenges may have caused you financial hardship. While it is important to hire a lawyer with expertise and experience, the practice of law always comes down to counseling people. Of course attorneys must know the law, but the most crucial part of their job is helping people to understand how those laws will affect them personally. In keeping with this, Gold Path Tax aims to bring humanity and compassion to the fields of tax controversy and tax resolution. Our focus is on you and your situation.
We will work with you by phone, video conferencing, email, fax, and post—and in person, too. Our office is in Troy, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, which allows us to keep our overhead down and lower our fees for clients in all 50 states and worldwide. That way you're paying for legal counsel, not someone's fancy office or prestigious address. The truth is that more than 95% of tax cases don't require any face-to-face meetings to be resolved, so it makes sense to hire an experienced tax attorney whom you trust, regardless of where they're physically located. This is why most clients work with us remotely. Of course, if you live here in Southeast Michigan, we're happy to meet with you in person, too.
We provide clear, up-front pricing for all our services, using either a flat fee, an hourly rate, or a hybrid plan—the choice is yours. Our aim is to make legal representation affordable and to provide our clients with options. It's already stressful enough dealing with an audit, tax liens, levies, a notice from the IRS or state tax authorities demanding tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes and/or penalties, or finding out that you can't get a crucial loan or mortgage because you haven't filed returns. We have reasonable fees and payment options because we understand that your main concern should be resolving your tax problems, not worrying about whether you can afford an attorney. We want to help you.
At Gold Path Tax, you'll work with the same attorney from the time you hire us to represent you until your case is resolved. Unlike mass-market tax resolution firms, we don't employ any sales staff: even your free initial consultation will be held with an experienced tax attorney. If you decide to work with us, you'll never deal with a gatekeeper who doesn't actually handle your case, or with multiple assistants who ask you for the same paperwork over and over again, or with temporary contract attorneys who don't know the details of your situation and may not be there when you need them.
