San Diego Tax Resolution Lawyers help taxpayers with the IRSThe U.S. economy went in the tank in December 2007, according to CNN Money. Californians, in particular, suffer this anemic economy more than Americans in other sates because California state legislators spend like water and obligate California taxpayers pay for endless programs making for a state with one of the highest costs of living. Many clients are severely indebted to the state in addition to the IRS.

For those who filed extensions often forget or run up against yet another last-minute scramble and the tax return goes unfiled.
