ALG Tax Solutions started in 2012, and is based in Lansing, Michigan. The company specializes in tax resolution, tax preparation, and tax audit services. It assists individual taxpayers, businesses, and those who are self-employed. ALG has helped over 15,000 clients, and the company guarantees peace of mind when it comes to resolving tax debt. ALG is not a member of top professional associations in the industry. It does not appear to be a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), or the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP).
ALG provides multiple free "step-by-step" ebooks and various convenient calculators and tools to help solve tax problems. The company also offers a blog with helpful posts broken up into individual, self-employed, and business categories. The blog goes into topics on tax resolution, answers tax help questions, digs into tax research, and covers industry and community news.
ALG offers customized tax services to individuals, businesses, and those who are self-employed. People can come to the company for help with federal and state taxes, and ALG makes sure everything is accurate before submitting any documents. Tax Resolution The company offers a variety of tax services and can assist with back taxes, tax liens, innocent spouse relief, offers in compromise, penalty relief, etc. Tax Preparation ALG helps clients even without tax problems and assists with filing normal taxes. Tax Audit and Litigation For those who are selected for an audit, ALG can help by representing clients against the IRS.
Clients can use the company's website to enter in their IRS letter's upper right-hand corner number to see how serious the issue is. ALG's website will decode the number to see if the letter is at an "easy," "medium," or "serious" level.
ALG's website mentions that it tailors services to each client's unique situation, including fixed free engagements as well as hourly engagements; however, the hourly engagements with a lawyer or CPA goes for $200 an hour, and initial evaluations cost $250.
Many top companies in the industry offer some kind of satisfaction guarantee, or refund policy; however, ALG does not advertise a money-back guarantee for unhappy customers. It should be noted, however, that in the event that ALG determines that 1) the case balance is too low or 2) the case is simple enough to not require a CPA or attorney, ALG will recommend customers a do-it-yourself solution at no cost.
ALG does not specify whether or not it utilizes tax attorneys, though a company representative (a tax attorney) has stated the company works regularly with enrolled agents, attorneys, and CPAs. That being said, disclosing the background and expertise of the staff is commonly practiced among top tax debt relief companies.
ALG is a member of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), and a member of the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA); however, it does not appear to be a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), or the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP).
Unfortunately, ALG is only available to those in the state of Michigan.
