Top Tax Defenders (TTD) employs a staff that has experience working directly with the IRS as both tax counselors and examiners. For 16 years, TTD has worked to help consumers resolve tax issues. They offer a wide range of tax issue services as well as informational eBooks to help guide consumers through complicated tax issues.
There are many tax relief companies who only provide services to residents of a few states because tax laws can vary between states. TTD stands apart from these companies. It employs professionals who are equipped to service residents of all 50 states.
The TTD staff consists of tax attorneys and certified public accountants. These professionals bring valuable knowledge of tax laws as well as general finance and accounting expertise vital to resolving tax issues effectively. Consumers will benefit from working with both types of professionals to resolve their tax issues.
There are various organizations and associations that hold members to high standards of best practices in the tax industry. TTD is a member of the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS) as well as the National Association of Tax Resolution Companies (NATRC). TTD's membership in these associations does not guarantee their staff will always use best practices, but it does give consumers some peace of mind that the company is meeting strict requirements.
TTD offers consumers a wide variety of tax issue services. Services include unfilled tax returns, back taxes, wage garnishments, tax lien and tax levy removal, asset seizure, audit representation, offer in compromise, payment plan setup, tax preparation and planning, payroll taxes, and innocent spouse relief.
Tax resolution services can be expensive, especially in high debt cases. TTD does not provide information on pricing anywhere on its website. It is concerning for consumers involved in a stressful tax situation to retain services from a company when they have no indication of what services may cost. Consumers can take advantage of the free consultation offered through TTD for information on pricing in regard to their specific tax issue.
Some tax relief companies only accept cases above a certain minimum debt amount. TTD only accepts cases with a debt amount of $10k or more. This excludes consumers with smaller debt amounts in need of tax relief services.
