Tax Resolution Services Company offers a free consultation to determine tax relief eligibility. It only takes taxpayers who have over $10,000 in tax debt. This is because smaller tax liabilities cannot justify the tax relief mediation fees and taxpayers can easily request a 36-month payment plan to the IRS by themselves. Customers who owe between $10,000 and $20,000 qualify for Tax Resolution Services' “Express Installment Agreement.” Taxpayers with larger tax liabilities and facing levies, seizures or wage garnishments receive the full attention of Tax Resolution Services' tax professionals.

How is Tax Resolution Services Company Better/Worse Than Other Tax Relief Companies?

Tax Resolution Services Company is a leading company in the tax relief business. It has an aggressive marketing campaign that has made it a household name. The company has an AAA rating with the Business Consumer Alliance; has been in business for 18 years; works with individuals and businesses nationwide; and employs tax attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents.

However, Tax Resolution Services Company does not publish the names or qualifications of its tax attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents. Its fees are expensive and there is no refund policy. On the bright side, it does offer flexible payments. What is worrying is that its BBB accreditation was revoked on 04/10/2014 because of its refusal to respond to customer complaints. Six months later, in 10/1/2014, Tax Defense Partners, which currently has an A- rating was launched from the same business address as Tax Resolution Services.

When I looked into this company, I was really impressed that they've been around so long. Nearly 20 years. I figured that by now they had to have figured things out and it looks like they have! They are helping me get resolution for my tax problems, and at a fair price. I am happy about it!

Only pure frustration comes from using Tax Resolution Services. They put me through the ringer and after probably three or so years, they have only managed to set me up with a payment plan. A PAYMENT PLAN. After all this time, this is all I get. Oh, plus I paid their fees. I would really recommend that everyone do some homework before hiring these guys. I had to do half the work myself. With what they did do, it didn't even make a big difference.

Investigate thoroughly before you hire their services, they do not do what they say will do. And will charge an arm and a leg!
