IRS Tax Settlement is based in Jacksonville, Florida, and is a marketing and advertising connection tool. The company itself does not provide direct tax relief services, but instead utilizes a network of tax professionals. In this past year, IRS Tax Settlement has helped thousands of taxpayers find tax debt resolution. The company 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).
Though standard in the industry, the company offers a free, no-obligation consultation with a tax expert. Clients who choose to reach out to IRS Tax Settlement will likely receive a response within 30 minutes if it is during business hours. Clients can contact the company by phone, or through the online contact form. During the consultation, an IRS tax expert will analyze the client's situation and provide all solution options.
The process starts with the consultation so the company can fully grasp the client's unique situation. IRS Tax Settlement will then connect the client with a licensed tax professional to help resolve the tax debt problem. IRS Tax Settlement helps with a variety of tax services, including unfilled tax returns, payroll tax issues, business tax problems, IRS bank and wage levies, tax liens, tax interest, and penalties. For solutions, the company assists with installment agreements, penalty abatements, innocent spouse relief, "currently not collectible" status, IRS appeals, and offers in compromise. The company works with both IRS business, and personal tax experts.
People browsing the company's website can utilize IRS Tax Settlement's live chat feature for immediate answers to questions. The live chat feature lets people talk directly with tax support agents.
IRS Tax Settlement is not a member of top professional associations in the industry. It is not a member of the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), or the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA).
The company does not specify whether or not it helps clients with asset seizures or tax audits. IRS Tax Settlement does state that if a client's tax problem is not included on the website, they can call in or fill out the online form to see if there is any way the company can still assist. The website does not explain if the company can help clients with state authority tax debt issues.
One of IRS Tax Settlement's biggest flaws is the lack of transparency. The company's website leaves out a lot of key information that would be helpful to know upfront. The website does explain that its services are available in all 50 states but does not explain if its network of tax professionals include CPAs, tax attorneys, or enrolled agents. Additionally, the website does not provide any background information on when and why the company started. IRS Tax Settlement does not explain pricing or fees in detail and does not specify if tax services operate with a minimum tax debt requirement.
