The Good

  • Free Consultation
  • Tax Services
  • Professional Staff
  • Glowing Customer Reviews

Free Consultation

Coast One Tax Group offers a free consultation. This consultation is one-on-one, and allows the company to understand the client's situation. Unlike other companies, Coast One Tax Group claims to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The website lacks important program and process information, so the consultation acts as a way for potential customers to learn more about the company, and receive answers.

Tax Services

The company does not provide a list of available tax services, so it is partially unclear exactly which tax issues the company can resolve. Coast One Tax Group does claim it can stop collection efforts, remove a tax lien placed by the IRS or state, and help reduce back taxes up to 80 percent. It is not clear whether Coast One Tax Group can provide tax lien discharge, tax lien subordination, tax lien withdrawal, partial pay installment, installment agreement, or penalty abatement services.

Professional Staff

Coast One Tax Group's website boasts that the company is comprised of tax advisors, attorneys, enrolled agents, and certified public accountants (CPAs).

Glowing Customer Reviews

Though not many, the customer reviews that have been written about Coast One Tax Group relay a quality of tax expertise and customer service that warrants consideration. Customer reviews relate that the tax reps at Coast One help customers understand every step of their tax problems, the tax relief process, and how to handle negotiations with the IRS. Other reviews tell of high debt savings in low-income situations, where the IRS hounded customers until Coast One stepped in to negotiate a lower payment.

The Bad

  • High Minimum Debt Requirement
  • Limited Online Information
  • No Professional Membership
  • No Live Chat

High Minimum Debt Requirement

To qualify to work with Coast One Tax Group, consumers must owe at least $10,000 in federal or state taxes. While $10,000 is common in the industry, there are companies that only require $5,000 or $7,500. The upside to this number is that those with lower tax debt usually do not want or need tax relief services, as the whole industry was created in order to relieve higher tax debt. However, a low debt requirement would mean more depth to the company's financial services.

Limited Online Information

Coast One Tax Group offers a lot of information about its services and success online. However, details are very limited regarding cost. However, this is fairly standard for the industry because pricing depends largely on each client's tax situation.

No Professional Membership

Coast One Tax Group is not a member of top professional associations in the industry, including the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), or the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA).

No Live Chat

The company does not provide any kind of live chat feature. Many competitors offer this feature.
