Tax Defense Network is the only tax relief company we have reviewed that displays average prices on their website. We are impressed with this degree of transparency, given that in the industry prices are usually not available until customers have called and given information about their situation. According to the company's website, average fees range from $2,500 to $3,000. Customers will appreciate not having to call for a quote and possibly be pressured into services without researching other options; this gives customers the opportunity to research and find the best company that suits their needs as quickly and efficiently as possible. This transparency also gives more credibility to TDN and shows that the company isn't trying to hide costs from customers.
TDN offers an impressive selection of service options. Their full service approach allows customers with all types of tax needs to utilize their services. Basic services include help with tax liens, wage garnishment, back taxes, and IRS appeals, but they also offer rare services such as innocent spouse relief, bank levy, and tax audit help. The team of dedicated enrolled agents, tax attorneys CPAs, and tax analysts has acquired an impressive reputation, judging by numerous customer comments. There is also no minimum tax debt requirement; oftentimes tax relief companies will require a minimum amount of debt before a customer can qualify for assistance. This makes Tax Defense Network's services available to people of all income brackets.
TDN is available in all 50 states. This makes them available to a wide variety of customers.
- Negative Reviews
TDN does offer a money-back guarantee for three days. Most other tax debt relief companies offer a longer refund window. Some competitors offer refund windows that range anywhere from 15 to 180 days; however, some tax relief companies do not offer a money-back guarantee. So while it is great that Tax Defense Network offers a money-back guarantee, we would like to see a more extended time frame.
One recurring complaint is that the company can be hard to get a hold of when dealing with problems or complications. Some customers had trouble speaking directly to an agent or attorney. This can be a major issue for some customers who have questions or concerns with their accounts. Also, some customers complained that the price was high for the services rendered.
While Tax Defense Network has some of the accreditations we look for, they do not have all of the accreditations we would like to see. Accreditations hold companies to a certain standard and often require audits to ensure that the companies are upholding these standards. Accreditations can help customers in the researching process to narrow down which companies would be best to work with.
