Our firm’s founder, Bob Boeshaar, is a Seattle tax lawyer committed to helping individuals and small businesses who are facing problems with the Internal Revenue Service.
Dedicated to Helping Others
Bob has a passion for helping people improve their lives, especially when they have been victims of unfair circumstances. He has helped people rebuild after their homes were destroyed by flood, tutored inner-city elementary school children, and helped establish an emergency overnight shelter for women. He also volunteers with the University of Washington Low-Income Federal Tax Clinic and is an active member of Seattle Rotary Club #4, which is focused on local and international service.
Bob’s passion for helping people drives his desire to help those whose lives and businesses have been disrupted by the IRS. Many people feel powerless to assert their rights when they are under scrutiny by the Government. As a former attorney for the Internal Revenue Service for 14 years, Bob saw many people whose lives were put on hold by a tax problem that they faced. If these people would have had someone on their side to help them navigate through the complex IRS maze, and fight for them, they could have resolved their problem favorably and moved on with their lives and businesses. Instead, they spent their valuable time and money trying to deal with the IRS on their own with an unsatisfactory outcome. Their tax problems often had devastating effects on their lives – some even often lost their homes and their businesses.
Knows How to Help
Bob knows how to help people facing tax problems. He uses his knowledge of the Internal Revenue Service to help people close the door on their tax problems and move on with their lives. In addition to his law degree from Willamette University College of Law, Bob has a Master of Laws in Taxation from the University of Washington. He also has 14 years of experience as a trial lawyer for the IRS where he litigated over 40 cases in the U.S. Tax Court. His insider experience makes him uniquely suited to help taxpayers achieve the best possible outcomes in their tax disputes. He believes in using his experience to serve others and to make a difference in their lives.
