Tax Resolution Services Company, which also does business as Tax Defense Partners, is a medium-sized tax relief firm based in Encino, California. The company, which since 2014 also operates as Tax Defense Partners, first opened for business in 1997. Tax Resolutions Services Company claims to employ tax attorneys, CPAs, and enrolled agents. However, it does not publish the names or qualifications of the tax professionals it employs. Tax Resolutions Services Company had its BBB accreditation revoked in 2014 and it currently has a D- rating. However, Tax Defense Partners has an A- rating with the BBB.
Tax Resolution Services Company provides tax consultation and representation services to businesses and individuals. These services include help with unfiled taxes, payroll taxes, IRS audits, wage garnishments, bank levies, liens on assets, offshore bank accounts, and requesting tax credits for investment fraud victims.
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.
Tax Resolution Services' team of tax professionals follow a wide variety of tax resolution strategies. These include offers in compromise, installment payment plans, partial pay installments, preparing unfiled taxes, innocent spouse relief, expiration, investment fraud victims recourse, bankruptcy and the use of freedom of information requests.
Tax Resolution Services Company does not provide a fee schedule or pricing guide for its services. Fees vary depending on the size and complexity of a case. When we requested a quote for a $50,000 tax liability case for a single tax year, we got a flat fee of $5,250, which could be paid for in 6 months, after a $2,000 down payment.
Tax Resolution Services Company operates in all 50 states.
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.
