Tax Testimonials

You and your staff are very professional. Calls back the same day, correspondences on time, and most of all Jonathan knows tax law, period. A high-profile customer in the shipbuilding industry recommended Johnathan. Thank you all for solving my tax issue.

Norbert W, from Washougal

I had dug myself not into a hole but an abyss of taxation issues, and I owed the IRS more than $250,000 and the State of Oregon more than $150,000. I couldn’t possibly resolve this devastating dilemma on my own, and it was wreaking havoc on my physical and mental health, causing me to develop stress-related heart issues, which often made me feel ill. Plus, the issues were compromising every aspect of my life, and I could hardly go to work without feeling thoroughly depressed and hopeless. Thanks to your expertise and skill at working out an acceptable offer in compromise with both the IRS and the Oregon Department of Revenue, I’m now debt-free, enabling me to enjoy a fulfilling life once again! I’m completely convinced that had you not intervened to come to my rescue, I wouldn’t be here to relay my story. Anyone who thinks they can take on these institutions alone is in for an extremely rude awakening. I tried and failed, which is why I want to tell others how vital your assistance was for me—and could be for them as well. Blessings to you and your family!

I’m very happy with the results I got by following Jonathan’s advice. We worked out a plan with the IRS that enables me to pay my tax debt within a relatively short period of time without severely diminishing my quality of life. I’ve saved a lot of money while avoiding penalties and wage garnishment. He guided me every step of the way, and the whole process unfolded almost exactly as he said it would. If you have a tax problem, I recommend Jonathan Mishkin whole-heartedly!

My wife and I would like to thank you for your help and astute expertise in helping us win our tax appeal; we truly believe we could not have won it without you. We would highly recommend you to anyone that has tax issues, and any problems related too.

Mr. Mishkin helped us get our lives back on track. We hired a tax attorney like the ones you see advertised on TV, and they caused more problems for us and never followed through, not to mention took our money. We found Mr. Mishkin, and he responded professionally and immediately to our issues. He knows tax laws very well and was able to work with the IRS to help settle our financial issues. We highly recommend Mr. Mishkin for your IRS needs. We were very impressed with how he stayed on top of issues that arose during the process. He is easy to work with, listens well to concerns and is always available to quickly respond to questions. Dealing with the IRS was highly stressful, and Mr. Mishkin helped ease that stress and eventually solved our issues. Life is good again. It is appreciated what he did for us.

I had a very positive experience with my Jonathan Mishkin. Jonathan and his staff have been a life saver for me. I would highly recommend him for any problems you might have. I have had such a positive experience with them as I had a very stressful situation and I quit worrying after they took over.

Just wanted to let you know that your strategy for my student loan write off worked and I am completely free of it- didn't have to pay taxes on it and in fact getting money BACK for 2020. I am in your debt and want again to thank you for all your help, your great bedside manner 🙂 and helping us with the follow up with the tax folks. If we need your services again, or I know anyone who needs them, I'll be in touch asap.

I’d like to thank you personally for working so hard on my situation. You really went above and beyond for me, and in the end, most likely saved me tens of thousands of dollars. For that reason, choosing to hire you was obviously the best investment I’ve ever made. If you ever need a reference or anything else I can do to help you out, please let me know. Though this matter is closed, I’m sure I’ll be contacting you for future services whenever I need legal advice.

We hired Jonathan to help us resolve a very complicated real estate tax issue that was creating a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety for my family. Despite this happening in the middle of tax season, Jonathan was able to quickly evaluate the issue, conduct the necessary research and come up with a great resolution that will end up saving my family a lot of money. Jonathan has great customer service skills and an ability to effectively communicate complicated tax issues to people like us who have minimal knowledge of tax law. We highly recommend Jonathan and will use him again if we ever need a tax attorney.

I am a retired businesswoman who ran into an unexpected IRS problem that gave me many sleepless nights and made me sick with worry. I was referred to Jonathan Mishkin on a Monday, and by Tuesday, I was in his office. In all my years working in the business world, he was the first attorney ever who I felt cared about my problem and me. He kept me posted and resolved the problem, all within a very short time. Thank you so much, Jonathan, and I would recommend you to family, friends and anyone else with a financial, IRS or estate problem. Thanks again.

From the moment I met Mr. Mishkin, I knew I was in good hands. He has always promptly responded to my questions and made sure I understood his answers. Dealing with the IRS is very intimidating, and he has made it a lot easier. Extremely knowledgeable, easy to understand and never too busy to help, Mr. Mishkin has given me a huge sense of relief. For all of these reasons, I highly recommend him.

I am writing a letter of recommendation on behalf of Jonathan Mishkin, our attorney. Florisel and I have known Mr. Mishkin for around 18 months, and he has represented us in legal issues related to the IRS. Jonathan is an attorney who really does care about his client. He does not expect you to understand the laws. He is intelligent, does his homework and is a very respectful person. He listens to you, and does not make assumptions without understanding the situation. We find Jonathan to be very intelligent but still quite human. He is polite, respectful and considerate. He is very respectful of us as a family and has been very interested and considerate about the impacts of legal issues on our family. Very helpful, Jonathan wants to keep his costs down by allowing us to do our own homework for him before his does his part in the legal process. This allows us to be heard and really helps in keeping the costs down. He is gifted in that he can listen and/or read what you are writing or trying to say, take that information, digest it, and put it into a very straightforward summary in legal terms that are understandable and effective. Mr. Mishkin is a very fine man, and an excellent attorney. We are very fortunate in having met him and having a person of his caliber and expertise help us with legal matters.

I approached Jonathan Mishkin law offices to help with an IRS negotiation that had been ongoing for 5 years regarding a past due tax payment from my mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s. My mother had an unresolved offer in compromise with the IRS for past due taxes. We had attempted two separate filings, with unsuccessful responses from the IRS. Our family was in fear we would be held responsible for some past due taxes that resulted during the onset of her illness. She did not have the income anymore to pay off the growing debt. We had spent four years negotiating with the IRS, frustrating time, money and energy. We came to Jonathan Mishkin’s firm and immediately he reviewed all our past offers and found a different approach to base our offer on. He had a solution in 15 minutes after four years of tax accountants sending us down many piles of paperwork and endless phone calls. His firm moved swiftly to obtain all the information needed and had the new claim files within weeks. We received acceptance of our offer in December 2020, best Christmas present ever. We now know our mother will be ok moving forward with no past IRS issues hanging over her. Mishkin Law firm was approachable, fast, reasonable and best of all successful in helping us settle a very longstanding IRS situation. I cannot say enough about the entire staff’s professionalism and knowledge of tax law and procedures as well as general estate planning and legal measures and advice we needed to take to make sure our ageing parent is taken care of and we can make decisions for her freely.

Jonathan is very insightful and straightforward. He didn’t waste time and made sure we used our time efficiently to get the job done.

Mr. Mishkin provided me with timely, precise and cost-effective work. Combining his knowledge of my situation with a very efficient solution, he gave me great relief. As a result, I’d like to use him in the future for my tax and estate needs.

I hired Jonathan Mishkin to represent me after I received an IRS notice of an audit for a previous year’s tax return. Stressed out about the situation as well as money, I decided to approach an expert who could provide advice and accompany me to the examination. Choosing Mr. Mishkin as this expert was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Jonathan clearly explained what I could expect at and how to prepare for the audit meeting. Deeply experienced with handling audits, he guided me on how to organize my information and documentation to make the examination go as smoothly as possible. My audit issues were quickly resolved—and with a far more favorable outcome than I had anticipated. In addition to appreciating Mr. Mishkin’s legal expertise, I found him straightforward, professional and pleasant to work with. He doesn’t sugarcoat issues, which I greatly value in business dealings. I won’t hesitate to hire him again for any future needs and highly recommend him to others needing help with tax issues.

I dealt with IRS problems for years. I tried to set up a payment plan, but they charge impossible penalty fees and interest rates. They just didn’t understand that I needed cash on hand to maintain my work truck. I responded to one of those radio ads you hear for a tax relief company, but all they did was cost me thousands of dollars and hours of time. They never resolved anything, and now they’re out of business. Then all of a sudden, I was receiving letters from the IRS almost every day. I was so overwhelmed—until my bookkeeper recommended Jonathan Mishkin. With my type of business, I can’t take time off during the day. So Jonathan worked with my girlfriend to start the process, while sending me emails and letters that provided step-by-step instruction. He also contacted IRS and state agents. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to see the letters stop and know that I had someone who could go toe-to-toe with the IRS. I could manage the payments, and I’m now settled with the IRS and the state. I can’t say enough about Jonathan’s professionalism and attention to detail—I’ve recommended him to others and will continue to do so every chance I get.

Dear. Mr. Mishkin, This is a brief note of heartfelt appreciation (literally; due to stress from my IRS debt exceeding $240,000, I had to go to the ER to deal with symptoms of severe cardiovascular jeopardy!). Thanks to your expert yet compassionate intervention with my tax burden, I no longer have a sense of perpetual overwhelm! I used to wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety attacks and frequently would be violently sick to my stomach. Candidly, I had occasional thoughts of self destruction, but could not allow myself to burden my family with my obligation. I would never have been able to dream of the possibility of resolution had you not taken my situation and helped me through the process of getting my life back. I am grateful beyond measure for you and your associates! Wishing you a most fulfilling holiday season.

I will say I could not have found a better attorney than Mr. Mishkin for my tax issue last year thar spanned data going back to the middle 90's. That due to Mr. Mishkin's expertise the case turned out very well for me and that I would retain him again, in a heartbeat.
