Getting letters from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or state taxing authorities can be scary. What makes matters worse is that they are hard to understand. Am I being audited? Have they filed a lien? Are my paychecks or bank accounts being garnished?
Taxes are complex. If you are a recipient of a taxing authority notice, call the law firm of Wiesner & Frackowiak, LC. Patrick Wiesner is both a tax attorney and CPA. Our firm has worked on thousands of tax matters.

We also have the capability to rapidly prepare the tax returns necessary for payment agreements, offers to settle, and bankruptcy. Come to us to speak with tax counsel today.
Learn About Our Services
Our approach is the full takeover of your case starting with your signing a tax power of attorney (POA) appointing us as your counsel. We file the POA with the IRS and become the point of contact between you and the government.
Our extensive experience gives us the knowledge to know what information the IRS requires to resolve your tax problem whether it’s an audit, garnishment, or payment plan. When tax problems can be resolved with bankruptcy, we can file your case in either Kansas or Missouri. If your income is too low to pay anything, we help you with obtaining uncollectable status.
If you have been served with a Notice of Deficiency, consider hiring us to meet the 90-day deadline to file the petition in the United States Tax Court. Our most recent tax court case involved a lady allegedly owing $85,000 for the income earned by her former husband. That case was quickly settled with the government acknowledging she owed none of it.
We have successfully handled both men and women in tax cases applying for innocent spouse relief. One case was published by the United States Tax Court which led to Congress changing the law.
Stopping paycheck and bank account garnishments is something we do often and well. Also known as a levy, sometimes halting the garnishment simply involves setting up a monthly payment arrangement. Other times bankruptcy is required. When the IRS demands delinquent tax returns be filed, we have resources for fast preparation.
Whenever possible, we will negotiate with the IRS to reduce your tax payment. This way forward is referred to as an Offer In Compromise (OIC). The amount of the settlement using an OIC is based upon your income, assets, and family size. Not all persons qualify.
Our job is to determine if you are eligible and the minimum amount the IRS can accept. We provide the valuable service of advising you when an OIC would be a waste of money and time.
Know Our Local Roots
Avoid the spectacle of losing your money to out-of-state firms in Florida, California, or Texas that promise settlements for pennies on the dollar and then never speak to you again.
We are here in Overland Park where you meet with us in person, shake our hand, and then do business. We operate out of a local office off Metcalf Avenue and not through a P.O. Box. Our staff talks to you from Kansas — not out of a phone bank in India.
