Have you received a tax notice from the Internal Revenue Service
or the New York State Department of Tax and Finance?


I’m Carl Hasselbarth of Hasselbarth Law in Albany, NY. We know very well how these letters can feel. We work very hard to have these issues dealt with – and we have. Click here to contact me today.

Our approach is always to use our many years of experience to work as hard as we can, regardless of the letter that you received.

We start by opening the lines of communication with the IRS or NYS and begin to create solutions immediately. Ignoring these letters always backfires as it usually increases your penalty.

If you have a Hasselbarth Law working towards a resolution with the IRS or NYS, they are more likely to cooperate.  Their case load is large – they appreciate working out problems.

With Hasselbarth Law by your side, you’ll have the government off your back before you know it. Contact me today so we can begin immediately.

The sooner you have us on your side, the sooner we can begin to help.
