    Silver Law helped us through an audit. Having them on our side was a great comfort when dealing with the government. They had an answer/response for every question they had and was able to make sure that we were not penalized one penny!

    Robert G. ★★★★★

    I received a letter from the IRS, it frightened me to my core. It was a LARGE amount. A friend referred me to Jason. After my initial meeting with Jason, he told me go take your kids out for the weekend and have fun, I will handle this. And he did just that. I am currently experiencing no fear regarding the IRS or any other tax issues. Thank you Jason Silver.
