  • "I needed legal help with a tax situation I found myself in a few years ago. I came to John and he explained everything to me in plain English and explained what needed to be done. I was initially overwhelmed with the amount of work I had to do, but he walked me through the entire process and communicated with the IRS on my behalf. Extremely thorough and organized. If you have questions regarding OVDI or FBAR, he's your man!"

  • "John Teter did an excellent job for us. He handled all interfacing with the IRS and worked out a deal that we could live with without undue financial stress. Just as importantly, he kept us appraised (and calm!) while all this was going on. I rarely write reviews, but I think that if you are trying to decide what to do in your tax situation you have to call John, it will be well worth it!"

    - Satisfied Customer

  • "Just hearing the word 'Audit' is stressful. I felt very nervous and overwhelmed. A friend referred our company to John Teter’s Law Office. John was incredibly professional. He went above and beyond to ensure that the audit was done fairly. And we could not be happier with the result. Would I recommend John Teter to others?... Absolutely!"
