Alexander was super helpful in solving my tax issues. He was knowledgeable on niche subjects and actually gave me his opinion as opposed to just rephrasing the tax code back to me. Highly recommended!

I found Alexander through a podcast. He and I had a phone consultation regarding the extremely confusing and emerging topic of cryptocurrency taxes. He is a friendly, intelligent and very experienced voice on the matter as his expertise really shows after only a short talk. Very happy to have met him.

Alexander is professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. More importantly he's friendly and easy to work with. He helped me navigate the financial implications of a contract. Did so while making me feel comfortable and confident. Didn't try to scare or upsell me. He answered my questions and I would go to him again.

Alexander helped me break down my tax situation and used his expertise to figure out the next actionable steps, make sure that all the bases were covered (that I wasn't aware even existed), and confirm that things were done correctly. If you are confused and stuck in a difficult tax situation, Alexander will guide you forward and help you confidently resolve the issue.

If you are having tax trouble, Alexander is the one to help you. He was very professional, personable, and easy to reach. His explanation of the entire process is helpful for easing the stress that is associated with tax trouble. We never felt intimidated or out of the loop while working with him. He will tell it like it is or isn't and won't try to take your money for unnecessary things. The process was handled to our liking and we are satisfied with the results. Even the after care has been phenomenal! Although we would never want to have to use Alexander again (we don't want anymore tax trouble), we will not hesitate to call him if there is future trouble!

Hire Alexander Kugelman if you have a Tax problem.

I received a very scary letter from the IRS stating that I owe them money - BIG TIME. However, I went to the audit with full confidence(With my CPA) knowing that I ran an honest business with all records on file & have nothing to worry about, only to find out that The IRS officer had very different perspective- - She denied everything saying that evidences are not satisfactory to her liking! I had to get some SERIOUS help at this point.

I met with Alexander and Douglass, they quickly walked me through what was probably going on, and assured me that we had a good chance of proving them wrong . Alexander was extremely proactive in keeping me informed.

Fast forward several month, I went from owing the IRS price of a Ferrari to the TAX court deciding that the IRS owed me money! I could not be happier :)

In summary, I learnt that if you ran a good business, the justice system in this country will see it too and you will prevail. However, You’ll need a good lawyer to make it happen. Hire Alex. You won’t be disappointed.

Alexander Kugelman was a great help in investigating my tax debt that had plagued me for years and later in negotiating an agreement with the FTB. He is clear and responsive, and I can't thank him enough for lifting the weight off my chest. Very happy that I had hired him and if in need, would do it again.

We came to Mr. Kugelman with an emergent tax problem which had caused a stall in the purchase of our Commercial Property. Thanks to his immediate actions and recommendations, the problem was resolved and we were able to complete our Commercial Property Purchase. We sincerely appreciated his highly competent service and assistance.

Alexander helped me with my 2018 taxes, which were significantly more complicated than in previous years. From the first call, it was clear that he was not only knowledgeable, but also patient, a great listener, and fair. I retained Alexander and he did a fantastic job. Needless to say, I will work with him moving forward.

In addition to helping me with taxes, he took some time to advise me on another matter, solely out of a desire to help me out with what has been a challenging situation. I would recommend Alexander without hesitation.

Had a phone consultation with Alexander today and he was beyond professional. Alexander was very helpful in answering my questions and obviously knowledgeable about the subject at hand. His quoted price for what I was looking for was more than fair, compared to other Lawyers in the region. I would recommend Alex, without a doubt.

Alexander was extremely helpful answering my questions regarding my self employed schedule c tax audit. He was friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly explained my possible scenarios in a clear and simple way. He didn't press me to hire him and that I needed to hire him in order to get more information about the audit. His quote to represent me was more than fair (compared to a few other places I called, which they would not give me any consultation unless paid a fee first) and I feel he would be more than qualified to represent me. As my case progresses, if I do need help or feel any more uncomfortable in my audit situation I will not hesitate to hire Alex.

Alexander has been a life saver! I got dragged into some serious IRS issues with a complicated foreign assignment component, which included divorce. Alexander has been working with me to resolve directly with the IRS. Alexander is detail oriented, responsive and I trust him to guide me.

I will be using Alexander for all tax related matters from now on! He is stuck with me forever.

I live in Italy and I was overwhelmed when I found out that I was suppose to declare an Italian inheritance.

Since my first call with Alex, he puts me at ease and took the anxiety out of the process which I really needed. Alexander was very responsive, prompt and available if I had any questions/need further consulting by phone, Skype, emails, he prepared all the necessary paper work explaining step by step with a lots of patience.....all it while I am in Italy!!!!

He has a great knowledge of taxes and he is also a great human being. You will be in great hands!

Alexander is both knowledgeable and professional. He's also really friendly and easy to talk to. He works hard to solve the issues and doesn't hard sell you on a bunch of unneeded services.

Note I'm a client of Alex's and generally meet him in the San Francisco office. Recently I was able to visit him in his Marin office for a quick consultation.

The IRS audited my tax return and questioned some personal and small business deductions I had claimed. I called Alexander on my accountant's recommendation. I'm really glad I did. He helped me understand the audit process and prepared my response. There were certain records that I had lost, but he suggested alternatives that the IRS accepted. Even better, he showed up at the audit for me and I never actually had to talk with the IRS. He definitely did a better job than I could have done on my own and I didn't have to pay any penalties. I'd definitely recommend hiring Alexander to deal with an IRS issue.
