“In the midst of negotiating with the IRS they decided to implement a levy and garnish my wages. I was left with $373 every two weeks which devastated my family financially. I called Joe Mastriano, PC and they were able to get the levy lifted within a week. The care and compassion exercised by The Staff was unparalleled. They made a very stressful situation easier to deal with. They sent very simple tax organizers via email and I was able to become compliant with my late tax returns as well as reduce my sizable IRS debt. (80k to 26k). The 26k is my initial amount and now that the levy has been lifted we are on to the next step of evaluating what the true debt will be but in my book 26k is way more manageable than 80!. I am grateful to the Joe Mastriano, PC team and the way they have worked with me. You hear advertisement constantly on the radio and television about how companies can help you deal with the IRS but where the rubber meets the road, Joe Mastriano, PC actually delivers. Thanks guys!” Tony Adems
“Hello everyone, I want to share my very positive experience that my husband and I have had with Joe Mastriano, PC. In 2012 we had owned a business in North Carolina that unfortunately failed. Our original tax attorney set our business up as a C-Corporation. We are still not sure why we were set up with that tax status. We had a very complicated tax situation especially trying to file a corporate return ourselves. I called Joe Mastriano, PC, they immediately took the time to set up a conference call with a team of Tax Attorneys to better understand our situation. Initially I was assigned an account Manager Sherry O who has been exceptional. She followed up with me weekly about any prior issues and knew how to put my tax fears at ease. Tax attorney Laurel was exceptional as well with her knowledge and research in finding answers to resolve our tax questions and to best meet our needs when completing our Corporate return. Joe Mastriano, PC has also helped with our 1040?s by amending them to reflect our loss from our Corporate return. Joe Mastriano, PC is also affordable and really came through when we were in a tax bind. I strongly recommend Joe Mastriano, PC, especially if your tax situation is complicated!. I'm looking forward to working with Joe and his team for our 2013 returns....Suzy B”
“At 4:00 pm on Friday, I was a desperate stranger to Houston with eight years of unfiled tax returns and a serious bank levy about to take effect on Tuesday. By Monday evening my taxes were filed and the levy was lifted. Joe Mastriano, PC did not promise that miracle, they just performed it. And it was executed with a professional and straightforward honesty, integrity, dogged persistence, and a surprising and welcomed level of compassion and empathy. I am especially grateful to Sherry O who always kept me in the loop and somehow managed to keep me laughing. I had to stop her from apologizing for all of her phone calls. In situations like this, you can’t communicate enough. She leaps tall building on a single bound. What impressed me the most was that I could tell how much the team there was inspired by the challenge. The attitude seemed to be: “This is impossible, but let’s see if we can do it.” And they did. And I have my life back. What more could you ask? I was afraid to call, I thought I could do it on my own. The lesson I learned is that when a team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals work on something, it gets done right. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me if I hadn’t picked up that phone.”
• Joe Mastriano, CPA Firm gives you a great video and audio option to guide you through the tough times. I would recommend using his services. It may be a small firm but it packs a big punch! Now, I am not only educated about my taxes. Now, I am no longer afraid of the IRS. Thanks Joe Mastriano, CPA Firm! Crystal G Tulsa, OK
I've been using Joe Mastriano’s Tax Firm for four years and can't say enough good things about them. Joe helped me through a brutal audit in 2008. Joe is one of the most well informed people I know. I value his advice more than about anyone I know. Highly recommend their service for the following: Advisor Tax Problem, Federal Tax CPA, Experienced Tax CPA, Solver of Tax Problems, The #1 Audit Helper and Advisor and most of all Filing Innocent Spouse.
My wife was being audited by IRS for years starting 2008. We got a bill in and they were requesting her to pay a lot of money, over $10,000 which we couldn't afford. We are poor people. This happened before we got married. She used to have her taxes done by a member of her family and we think they were done improperly with some stuff counted as deductions when they were in fact non deductible.
This went on for a couple of years until we got married, and the numbers piled up, at least that's what the IRS told us. So we decided to hire profesional help and eventually went for Joe's firm after going through a number of other people who didn't insipire enough confidence in us.
Ever since, we managed to settle with the IRS and we are still working on tying up a bunch of other loose ends and making sure we don't have any other outstanding problems that could come back and haunt us in the future. We're working with Joe solving this and so far we're very satisfied with his help and the valuable advice he has provided us with.
Going forward as a newlywed couple it is our primary concern now to make sure that this doesn't occur again and we know how to do things right from now on. I want to make sure with the new purchase of our home, our combined investments, IRAs, 401k, tuition/education, that we are properly filing our taxes and we don't end up having unpleasant surprises in a couple of years from now. And we're happy that not only we solved our current situation, but we're also getting professional counseling for our future.
I'm confident we'll be turning to Joe's firm to handle our taxes from now on to avoid any more problems.
P.S. Also, personally I've learned a lot by myself just reading Joe's website. That's how we decided to use his services in the first place, I need more education on the tax system at least to understand how to file my taxes and why certain things are taxed the way they are, and how to protect myself from making stupid mistakes, so I first came upon Joe's site, and then showed it to my wife and both agreed he's the guy to hire. So I highly recommend that before you decide who to hire, you go over Joe's website taxproblem and educate yourself, best make an informed decision!
We maintain a great reputation as an experienced professional
CPA firm in Houston.
We have strong internal procedures to resolve client issues immediately to avoid complaints.
This Michael V. comment appears to be phoney.
We do not have a client with that name. We do not have a client that looks like that picture.
We do not represent taxpayers in tax court.
Usually when someone trys to slander us there are obvious lies, such as the following.
"according to the Chief counsel of the IRS damaged my chances because the CPA agreed for me to submit more information which shouldnt have according to Portia Rose, IRS chief councel."
As CPA's we can't agree to anything in court. We are not attorneys and not licensed to practice in tax court.
At best we can assist the taxpayer at putting together info to present to the court, as we occasionally do.
We are not allowed to address the court in any manner.
As we continue to increase market share locally, we expect competitors to write phoney complaints.
We continue to maintain an A+ BBB rating after over 30 years as a CPA firm.
We always strive to meet our customer's needs solving IRS problems many other representatives fail to do.

I owed the IRS around 100k for a business which the IRS wasnt allowing any of my deductions, I was begining my day in court at the US IRS court of apeals. My goal was to be able to reduce liability by 30k. I called Joe as a last minute resource thinking they can help me with tax code and maybe some court cases to reference, he mentioned they can do the job and help me without no problem. The CPA which went to the court, mentioned he has never done this before as he has never been to court and in fact according to the Chief counsel of the IRS damaged my chances because the CPA agreed for me to submit more information which shouldnt have according to Portia Rose, IRS chief councel. I ultimately settled with the IRS with no help from Joe. I understand it is my error for hiring his team but if this was not bad enough, he charged an additional $500 to my credit card and increased the actual hours served. I highly recommend to everyone not to use him. When his own staff tells me, Joe is only about the bottom line, you know something is wrong. I will be making a BBB complaint as well and once i have a reference number will post on here as an update.
Joe's Expertise Saved Me. Don't underestimate the value of Joe's experience, personal contacts within the IRS, and dedicated service. My wife and I Owed over 1 Million, I hadn't filed taxes for 10 years. Self-employed, married. Had1 bad year, didn't file because I couldn't pay. That started the cycle. The stress was unbelievable. To make matters worse, I listened to the TV commercials, you know, pennies on the dollar. Well, Joe will give it to you straight even if it isn't what you want to hear. It is a long, drawn-out process, and you REALLY need an expert to handle. It was very complicated how to manuever around the offer/rejection/appeals process, my initial offer in compromise was badly rejected. The TV commercials are just trying to lure you in, they don't prepare you for the ture process. In the end we paid about 12% of what was owed, and I got the letter today from the IRS thanking me - amazingly nice letter. They seemed ready to string me up when this whole process started a few years ago, you can imagine how the IRS was treating me after ducking, dodging, and ignoring them for 10+ years. I see one of the negative reviews below complaining about having to do work itemizing receipts, etc. They are not offering to be your full-service accounting firm, IMHO, you will still need to do most of the leg work. Joe & Sherry will be doing my taxes forever, this was a life-altering experience, and one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Note from the President: – Not only do we have over 30 years experience representing taxpayers before the IRS, an A+ BBB rating, and are a licensed professional CPA firm, but.....
