Federal Tax Relief Overview
Since its beginning in March of 2014, Federal Tax Relief has achieved an impressive record of helping Americans across the nation get out of tax debt. Based in Woodale, Illinois, this company is quite proud of the 50+ employee team they have put together to best serve client needs.
Federal Tax Relief are the new kids on the block in the tax relief arena, which could be a solid indicator of exceptional service as they have a lot to prove. A complete team of Tax Attorneys, Enrolled Agents, experienced Tax Accountants, and a team of Customer Service Associates is granted to ensure clients always have live access when questions arise. This may come in handy when navigating the complicated world of the IRS. Other benefits of Federal Tax Relief include:
- Free Consultation
- Super low rates
- Broad spectrum of relief services
In a free consultation, a Tax Resolution Officer will assess each financial situation to determine if their team will be able to find resolution to the tax burden. A thorough investigation performed by an Enrolled Agent or Tax Accountant will determine the underlying cause of the issue and offer a resolution proposal within 24 to 48 hours after the consultation.
Pricing is always a concern, especially for those already under financial hardship, but this team offers some of the lowest rates we’ve seen in the industry ringing in at 10 percent of the total owed or being resolved. They claim to have no hidden charges and potential clients will not be obligated to hand over any cash unless they feel confidence in the team’s ability to resolve the issue.
Back Tax Solutions:
Federal Tax Relief can also lighten the load by offering back tax solutions, determine what amount is currently not collectible and give professional IRS Tax Audit support. Regardless of the tax troubles clients are faced with, or the dollar amount owed, FTR claims to always be there throughout the resolution process.
No tax resolution company can be perfect all the time, and Federal Tax Relief has a few cons worth mention. FTR has several package options to best suit clients needs, although they claim to simply help with small tax issues. With that being said, “small tax issues” have a better potential to be solved by contacting the IRS directly. Typically, for smaller issues, the IRS works with taxpayers to come up with a plan to resolved debt – and can be done for free. Limitations to Federal Tax Relief include:
Some Limited Package Features:
Packages may contain more or fewer services than are ultimately applicable to each situation, but they aim to be comprehensive. When in doubt about the offer to select, Customer Service Representatives may suggest selecting a larger package than actually needed just to cover all the bases. This isn’t necessarily bad advice, but it’s something to keep in mind.
Limited Service Area Based on Location:
Another downfall is location. Some people are perfectly comfortable giving personal information over the internet, some are not. The latter would prefer to meet in person and go over specific details. With only one location, this is not going to be possible with FTR. You’ll need to relinquish a fair amount of control to benefit from a tax resolution settlement.
No Free Resources to Clients:
Then there’s the lack of free resources. Most company websites have a Blog section proving to be a fountain of free information pertaining to tax debt resolution. Federal Tax Relief does not. We’d like to see more calculators to figure out specific tax related problems, in addition to articles explaining the process of tax resolution, what to expect during the investigation or even some quick tips to make sure you’re having enough funds withheld from each paycheck. Any free resources can go a long way to building trust and rapport with a client.
