Tax Defense Network employs many professionals, including enrolled agents, tax attorneys, CPAs, and tax analysts.

The Good

Through the Tax Defense Network, taxpayers can receive the relief they need from a variety of IRS and state tax penalties. The Tax Defense Network will negotiate with the IRS on behalf of their clients and work out what is best for the taxpayer. Benefits of the Tax Defense Network process include:

Displays Pricing Online

Tax Defense is the only tax relief company we have reviewed that displays average prices on its website. We are impressed with this degree of transparency, given that in the industry prices are usually not available until a customer has 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 quick and efficient as possible. This transparency also gives more credibility to Tax Defense Network and shows that the company isn’t trying to hide costs from customers.

Services

Tax Defense Network offers an impressive selection of service options. Their full service approach allows customers with all types of tax needs to utilize Tax Defense Network’s 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.

Comprehensive Availability

Tax Defense Network is available in all 50 states. This makes Tax Defense Network available to a wide variety of customers.

The Bad

With Tax Defense Network, clients can expect to receive the protection and help they need while navigating the IRS relief process. That being said, there are some limitations that need to be addressed as well. Prospective clients should be aware of the following items:

Refund

Tax Defense Fund 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 timeframe.

Negative Review Summary

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.

Accreditations

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.

The Bottom Line

Tax Defense Network has a great reputation for offering a wide range of services. Tax Defense Network does not require a minimum debt requirement and is available in all 50 states which makes its services available to anyone who is in need of tax debt relief. While we would like to see more industry accreditations and an extended refund policy, customer reviews are overall positive. We can recommend working with Tax Defense Network.

    Deborah worked with me and resolved my issues extremely quickly. The only reason I contacted Tax Defense was because I was on hold with the IRS. Really glad THEY had a long wait time!! Hope to not need services in the future but if I do, I will be contacting Tax Defense first.

    We used Robin at Tax Defense Network to help with both our IRS and CA Tax Board tax issues. Our IRA was converted to a regular account without our knowledge which led to back taxes being owed. A resolution and payment plan was set up within 3 weeks of me calling them. They have excellent ratings for a reason. The IRS is a nightmare to deal with and I’m so grateful to Tax Defense Network for making the process easy.

    Tax Defense Network is Awesome!!! Unfortunately I’ve had to use their services multiple times these past few years. Each time it has been the same excellent, outstanding customer service that my situation required. Quick, communicative and extremely efficient not to mention approachable and friendly. Their effort has been exactly what I needed to get me back on track and grant me the peace of mind necessary to focus on the more finer things in life. Thank you to all of my contacts at the Tax Defense Network. You’ve all been outstanding!!

    We want to thank, Ms. Scarlett and the Tax Defense family for their services and making this journey easier for us. Ms. Scarlett was our assigned tax analyst. She took the time to talk to us and explain what she needed and why. We made at least 8 phone calls to her and only received her answering machine once, so we could always depend on her to there for us. She is very professional and personable. Within a weeks time Ms. Scarlett had a resolution for our state taxes. We recommend this company(Tax Defense Network) to help you to solve your tax problems.

    I was once told that, it is the people that work for you that can make or brake your business and Ms. Scarlett is helping to make this business to continue to thrive.

    Once again Thank you Ms. Scarlett its been a pleasure.to work with you.

    I had a massive tax issue and at first I went to Optima. The only reason why I went to them is because of the claims they made through advertisements. I was shocked at how much they charged but felt I had no choice. They had a payment plan and I made the first payment but quickly learned Optima was not going to do anything until more money was paid. Given the severity of my tax issue I went on the Internet and found Tax Defense and Mark. Mark was very helpful and did not try to hard sell me but my gut told me that Mark was very sincere. I asked Mark to work up pricing for me so I could determine if I should change. That day I got all the information from Mark and their pricing was half than Optima and they would get my tax issues handled. I signed that day with Mark and they started on my tax issues immediately. Tax Defense had a very affordable payment program and twice they allowed me to stretch the dates out. Mark was working with my tax issues non stop until they reached an awesome settlement for me. I am so happy I switched companies as Tax Defense was clearly on my side and did not wait until they got all my payments to help me. Mark is one of the best people I have ever worked with. He returned my calls when I had questions, he returned my emails promptly. Mark is very sincere in his desire to help people with tax issues and best of all treated me like a human being. This worked out for me and Mark and his team made that happen. I would recommend Tax Defense to anyone who has tax issues and always ask for Mark because he cares about you and your situation and does not look down on you for stupid mistakes. It is rare to see awesome customer care but with Tax Defense and Mark this is what they live for. Thank You Mark for all you did for me!!!
