Our History

We are a tax settlement firm headquartered in Irvine, California. Unlike many other firms, tax debt resolution is our entire business. No matter how complex the tax problem, our goal is to provide the best tax settlement alternative available. Our solution will begin at the source of the problem and follow it through to a complete resolution. We are proud members of the Irvine Better Business Bureau and the California Board of Accountancy.

Our parent CPA firm was founded in 2007 by Brian C. Hill, CPA. In 2010, in response to the growing demand for tax debt resolution services and the desire to help clients who found themselves either victims of the economy or their circumstances, we added a new tax settlement division, Professional Tax Resolution Inc. Through this addition, we have been able to bring financial integrity to the tax debt resolution market and have successfully assisted many grateful clients who had crippling tax liabilities.
