First Class Tax Relief highlights include:
- Free consultation

Free consultations are offered to determine the best plan of action to solve tax burden in accordance with IRS regulation, and taxpayers may find relief in this company’s long hours of operation, including weekend hours.
FCTR provide an extensive list of services sure to help anyone, or any small business, in search of tax related relief. The company is able to tackle anything from unfiled tax returns, tax prep help, settling back taxes, to small business tax relief and corporate taxes and issues.
While Offers in Compromise are difficult to attain due to strict regulations set forth by the IRS, this company demonstrates how it can assist in having an OIC granted. Upon calling for the free consultation, the company analyzes the financial situation thoroughly in order to determine if this plan is worth approaching. In a lengthy list found on the company website, FCTR has illustrated each of the OICs it has helped tax payers attain.
- Pricing transparency
- Refund policy
- Questions regarding staff
Consumers can appreciate a company holding memberships with professional organizations such as the American Bar Association or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, yet this company does not hold these. We would like to see a tax relief company go above and beyond as a way of gaining client trust.
In addition, FCTR does not offer a clear pricing structure. As researchers, we understand pricing for various services differ; however, in many cases companies assess an initial flat fee for investigative services, then apply an additional flat fee for the service required to resolve the tax issue. This company was not transparent when approached with this concern.
FCTR does not offer a money back guarantee to refund customers if they are not completely satisfied.
Questions Regarding Staff
A beneficial offering for clients would be to include attorney, CPA, and EA bios on the company website, as it allows visitors to see who will be assisting them with their cases and, again, builds trust while assuring taxpayers they are in good hands.
Time in Business
First Class Tax Relief has been in business since 2001.
The amount due depends upon the complexity of the case and the amount owed to the IRS, which seems to be industry standard. Each case is different and requires a different plan of action to resolve. In order to determine the best pricing for your situation, we suggest calling in for a free consultation.
