The Bad

  • Potentially High Cost
  • No Money-Back Guarantee
  • Potentially No Tax Attorneys
  • Lacking Membership
  • Only Available in One State

Potentially High Costs

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.

No Money-Back Guarantee

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.

Potentially No Tax Attorneys

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.

Lacking Membership

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).

Only Available in One State

Unfortunately, ALG is only available to those in the state of Michigan.

The Bottom Line

ALG Tax Solutions provides a variety of tax services. The online Tax Letter Decoder feature is convenient, and clients from all 50 states can work with the company. ALG specializes in tax preparation, audit, litigation, and resolution services. It is especially convenient that the company categorizes educational resources and information by individuals, businesses, and for those self-employed. ALG Tax Solutions is worth looking into for tax services, but is not exactly a standout in the industry.
