IRS Medic Overview
Based out of Connecticut, IRS Medic was launched as a family operated tax relief business after David G. Parent, ESQ. and son, Anthony E. Parent, ESQ., graduated law school together. The company has recently focused on helping taxpayers with offshore voluntary disclosure among solving traditional tax dilemmas as well.
IRSMedic shines light on how the IRS can affect US taxpayers who generate a worldwide income, enlightening the public that no matter where they are located, the IRS will find and tax individuals and business. We appreciate efforts made by the company to educate and inform the population. In fact, they claim to have served clients on each continent, except Antarctica. Benefits of the IRS Medic services include:
A major difference setting this company apart from the rest are that services are extended globally and they provide local contact numbers, toll-free numbers, and numbers for Zurich, Switzerland, Hong Kong, and have even secured a number with iNum, a supplier of local telephone numbers to communication service providers and businesses worldwide. They provide a wealth of services for individual taxpayers and business owners, and offer a free consultation to help determine the best approach to tackle the tax problem head on.
They offer a broad range of tax resolution services and offshore tax controversy services, although they make clear if consumers are seeking a local attorney, this company is not for them because they have a team of Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program attorneys with a potentially broader knowledge base than the locals. While this may seem a little egotistical on the surface, we appreciate a company’s ability to confidently stand behind their services and specialization.
When it comes to pricing, IRSM offers services under a flat fee rate, and prices vary greatly depending on the scope of the tax issue. Additionally, the company warranties their work, and if they cause discrepancies or if the IRS processes something incorrectly, clients will not be held accountable and never be charged more than the original quote. This ensures the attorney’s will make the best effort to resolve all kinds of tax debt in a timely and efficient manner – otherwise, they lose money.
Another beneficial aspect of IRS Medic is their general warranty which extends for an additional 180 days after the final resolution of the tax debt is granted. This protects clients from any additional mistakes made by IRSM and the IRS. And what makes this warranty even greater is IF there are mistakes and the warranty is used, they will provide an additional 180 days of protection after the final resolution and guarantee they will work constantly on the job until final resolution.
IRS Medic offers both news about tax issues from the media on their website and internal news from the firm. They also have a blog, a FAQ area to answer basic tax questions and a number of other resources to increase your tax knowledge overall.

- Free consultation

We have found some major pros with this company; however, it comes with some major downfalls like helping the everyday Joe with his tax or state planning, in fact, unless consumers reside in CT, they will never attain the sometimes important face-to-face communication they desire. While not all tax burdened clients require an intimate meeting, this may cause some to pass up this company in search for that down-home-neighbor kind of feel. Other limitations include:
This company also lack some important accreditations and memberships with some of the industry’s leading organizations, such as the National Association of Tax Professionals NATP, for instance. Although they are members of the ABA, as they have lawyers on staff, we would like to see them go above and beyond to offer clients more peace of mind concerning ethical practicing standards.
