The Good

  • Free Consultation
  • Available Resolution Services
  • Tax Services

Free Consultation

Standard in the industry, Strategic Tax Lawyers offers a free consultation. The consultation is a one-on-one call with a tax professional to go over the client's financial situation. The representative will analyze the tax problem, and suggest a possible resolution strategy. If the company cannot help with the problem, it will point the client in the right direction.

Available Resolution Services

Clients can come to Strategic Tax Lawyers for help on a variety of different tax services, including: IRS audits, tax liens, innocent spouse relief, IRS and state bank levies, IRS and state wage garnishments, payroll taxes, estate plans and taxes, penalty abatements, offers in compromise, businesses taxes, and more. The company caters to clients from all 50 states, and can assist remotely.

Tax Services

After the free consultation, the company claims to let the client know how strong the case sounds, and advises accordingly. The tax law firm helps with a variety of tax services, and tax attorneys are trained to represent against the IRS, Employment Development Department, Board of Equalization, and State Taxing Authorities. In fact, Strategic Tax Lawyers' leader represented the IRS as its own attorney for eight years. The company does not outsource work.

The Bad

  • No Money-Back Guarantee
  • Website Lacks Information
  • No Educational Resources
  • Lacking Professional Memberships

No Money-Back Guarantee

A lot of top companies in the industry operate with a money-back guarantee for unhappy customers. Strategic Tax Lawyers does not advertise any kind of satisfaction or refund policy. This is disconcerting, especially since the company does not transparently present its resolution process.

Website Lacks Information

The company's website does not mention anything about helping clients achieve "currently not collectible" status. Strategic Tax Lawyers does not appear to work with CPAs or enrolled agents on staff. Additionally, Strategic Tax Lawyers' website does not provide a lot of history on how or when the company started. Adding background information on a company's start helps to build credibility. The website does not explain any information on company fees or costs.

No Educational Resources

The company does not offer any kind of helpful articles or resources to educate customers on various tax issues in the industry. Though educational resources are not required to make a company reputable, they certainly can help customers.

Lacking Professional Memberships

Strategic Tax Lawyers is not a member of top professional industries, including the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS), or the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP).

The Bottom Line

Strategic Tax Lawyers, LLP has been in the industry for over a decade, and as a tax firm, is regulated by the State Bar. It works with tax attorneys to cover a wide range of tax services. However, because of the lack of transparency, the cons outweigh the pros. The company is not accredited by many industry-recognized organizations and does not provide any information on pricing, costs, or a money-back guarantee. Additionally, Strategic Tax Lawyers does not seem to work with CPAs or enrolled agents on staff. We recommend going with another tax relief company, preferably one that is a member of professional associations in the industry, like the NAEA, ASTPS, and NATP.
