Help on Several Levels
Many individuals and businesses find themselves in trouble with a taxing authority, such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), at one point or another. While some have the means to deal with issues on their own, others know that getting the assistance of a professional firm is the best option. This is where Clean Slate Tax comes into play. By providing help on many levels, there aren’t many problems the company is unable to address.
Furthermore, the company’s tax resolution process requires that a full investigation first be completed. During this time, the client doesn’t have to do anything but wait to hear back. Clean Slate Tax believes that nobody should pay a dime until they know exactly what is wrong, which tax service can fix the problem, and how much it will cost.
Speaking of the investigation, Clean Slate Tax goes above and beyond in terms of the information it digs up. The company focuses on a variety of details, based on the client’s situation, which can include the amount of money you owe, who you owe, the penalties and fees you have been assessed, when the debt was incurred, and how your current financial position could impact how much you pay.
Experienced Staff Members
Clean Slate Tax has one of the most experienced staffs in the industry. In addition to a lead tax attorney, there are other attorneys and CPAs on staff. Its lead attorney, for example, has memberships with the State Bar of California, American Bar Association, and National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
When you combine the services and staff, you end up with a company that has the right formula for providing clients with the service they want, need, and deserve. By comparing Clean Slate Tax to the competition, you will soon find that the company stands tall in most key areas, which has given them an edge when it comes to providing clients with top-of-the-line service.

Time in Business
Clean Slate Tax has only been in business since 2013, making it one of the newest companies in the industry. Although this may not be a deal breaker, there is something to be said about those companies who have proven themselves and gained experience over several years.
Unfortunately, Clean Slate Tax has not disclosed pricing information on its corporate website, which can be frustrating for potential customers trying to gain a better understanding of if and how the company’s services will fit into their budget.
Finally, the Clean Slate Tax website states that its “tax professionals have over 25 years of experience combined.” On the surface, this sounds like many years of experience, and it is. But here is the problem: other companies have more people on staff, some of which are much more experienced in IRS and state tax issues. This isn’t to say the company doesn’t have enough experience to handle each and every case that comes its way, but some people may be more comfortable with a firm with a larger number of more seasoned employees.
These drawbacks don’t outweigh the benefits of working with Clean Slate Tax. They do show that the company is not perfect, and that there are things to consider before hiring it to handle a tax problem.
