Notes From The Community

I just want to take a moment to thank you sincerely for your intervention with my stimulus check issues. After almost one year of reaching out to IRS agents and tax advocates, I have finally received some positive news and progress! I doubt this progress would have been forthcoming without your intervention. So again, I thank you.
