Instant Tax Solutions Overview
Based in Post Falls, ID, Instant Tax Solutions is a younger company that has been around since 2009. They have branded their company around taking care of clients first and worrying about profits later, which is seemingly true based on their exceptional rating with the BBB having only two consumer complaints in the past 3 years of service.
Although Instant Tax Solutions has not been around as long as other agencies, they have created a process that has helped their clients navigate the tax code and receive the help and savings needed to combat the penalties imposed by the IRS. Benefits of the Instant Tax Solutions platform include:
Instant Tax Solutions highlights include:
- Free Consultation
- A+ rating with the BBB with very few complaints
- Wide variety of services to fit any tax related needs
- Offer a “No-Questions Asked, 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee”
Instant Tax Solutions a free consultation to answer any nagging questions consumers may have concerning tax and IRS problems. A 15 minute phone call will help professionals examine the financial situation consumers are facing, and to determine if any of their programs will be of benefit.
The company is able to assist consumers in all 50 states, employing 40+ tax professionals who are on staff offering full service tax resolution accepting one of the lowest ranges of debts available at $3,000. If consumers owe less, representatives are willing to provide over the phone advice to help consumers handle those “smaller” cases on their own, claiming that paying for their service for anything under the three thousand mark would be unfair to the client.
Under their umbrella of programs, they help consumers and businesses alike tackle the embarrassment the IRS may be dangling in front of their clients and peers, such as revenue officers showing up at work and at homes, or wage garnishments that can be made a public spectacle. Qualified Tax Attorney’s, CPA’s, and Enrolled Agents are able to assist clients, and for less costly cases, programs such as help with filing back taxes are available to help save time and money. Each plan is fully customized to meet the needs of taxpayers and businesses.
Pricing is varies, which is the norm for this industry, yet it’s quite competitive. And if clients are unable to find a lump sum of cash to pay retain their services, Instant Tax Solutions provides clients with a payment plan to help relieve some of the financial burden they are already in. Generally, individuals pay between 4-6 installments. If for some reason clients wish to back out of any of their programs, they have a 30-day money back guarantee to help ease the mind of the financially strapped consumer. On top of this guarantee, the company is able to set on the table an additional refund policy allowing a partial refund on services not yet performed. Collectively, this refund policy is one of the best ones we’ve seen in this industry.
The Instant Tax Solutions platform has implemented a number of services and features that benefit clients and help people obtain financial freedom. That being said, there are a number of limitations to the business model that should be considered by prospective clients prior to enrolling in the Instant Tax Solutions program:
Along with many consumers in search of reliable businesses to help them on the path to financial success, many would appreciate the company doing more to educate consumers and clients alike by providing resources and tools. Instant Tax Solutions offers consumers a blog; however, posts are not regularly updated to meet the needs of those with the desire to become financially fit. They would do well to offer calculators and other materials to help their clients get on the right track financially.
Additionally, there are some concerns with their lack of involvement in various professional associations and memberships, such as the NAEA and AICPA, to name a couple. Obtaining additional accreditations would be another way of increasing consumer trust and increasing confidence in this business.
Prices vary depending on your situation. However, with a situation of $20,000 tax debt, the fee will generally be between $2,400-2,800 depending on if it is personal or business debt. They do offer payment plans as well. Generally, individuals pay between 4-6 installments. They are reasonably priced.
