Tax Defense Partners Review
The IRS is a difficult and scary entity to have to deal with. Tax Defense Partners offer a variety of services to help ease your tax burdens. They can help you get an installation agreement (though you can pretty easily do this yourself) or negotiate to lower the amount owed, generally for a lump sum payment. They can also help by easing liens and levies placed on your property, bank accounts, and wages. This can be a real lifesaver.
Not everyone will qualify, everything is handled on a case-by-case basis, but if they are able to help you, you’ll be charged a flat fee. This fee will depend on how complex the case is, how much representation you’ll need, amount of money involved, etc. But you’ll be quoted ahead of time so you can make an informed decision. Overall their prices seemed pretty average among providers of tax debt relief services.
For someone to legally represent you before the IRS they need to be an enrolled agent, a certified public accountant or a tax attorney. Tax Defense Partners did well in this respect as they have individuals in all three categories. This is another thing to keep in mind when you consider the fees. This isn’t a task that can be outsourced for cheap, they need to keep professionals on hand. And yes, it costs a bit to do.
Tax Defense Partners has an interesting mix of reviews, they have many good ones but there are a lot of really bad ones too. This isn’t exactly uncommon but the main complaints were that they didn’t respond to question (especially by email) or that their fees were too high. Being unresponsive is really frustrating. The high fees, unfortunately, are just pretty common in this industry.
