Ronald Arthur Stearns

Austin, Texas



I am Ronald Arthur Stearns Sr., P.L.L.C., Attorney at Law, and I represent individuals and businesses throughout Texas, in matters relating to Internal Revenue Service audits and collections defense. If you have unfiled tax returns, call me. I can definitely help.

Sometimes the IRS will settle your tax obligations for a fraction of the tax you owe. The right facts and circumstances must exist, however, and correct procedures must be followed for this opportunity to be available and successful.

I am a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps. I have over 23 years of litigation experience representing individuals and businesses, and I will put all my experience toward solving your IRS problems. If your facts and circumstances are appropriate, you may be able to settle your tax obligations with the IRS at a substantial reduction. Sometimes this may be a fraction of what you owe.

I'm a local Austin, Texas attorney. I have three convenient office locations.  Two of our offices are  in downtown Austin, approximately three blocks from the State Capitol dome. One of the downtown offices is across the street from the IRS. I've been there for 16 years. The other downtown office is across the street from the United States District Courthouse.  We also have a North Central Austin location for the convenience of Taxpayers residing or working in Georgetown, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Leander, Cedar Park, Liberty Hill and all other locations North of downtown Austin.”  The North central Austin location is very conveniently located on Highway 183, one block south of Highway 620, in the ten story Tower of the Hills, Chase Bank Building.

Before you speak with or write to the IRS, call my office to schedule a free 15-minute telephone interview. An experienced lawyer can explain the reality of what you can expect from the IRS. Whatever your situation, I can help.

I represent individual and business Taxpayers throughout Texas.
