JG Tax Group, co-founded by an ex-IRS agent, claims an 88% success rate in reducing their clients’ IRS tax debt. In fact, they say that not one of their over 40,000 clients has ever received a criminal charge. Their experienced team provides tax relief services in all 50 states.
ASTPS and NAEA Certified
The employees at JG Tax Group are members of the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers and the National Association of Enrolled Agents. Both of these organizations provide specialized training, ongoing education and a higher level of accountability. Neither is obligatory, so the choice to affiliate with these groups speaks well of the company.
Help for Most Tax Problems
JG Tax Group offers help with many tax debt and negotiation problems, providing services for unfiled returns, wage and bank levies, audit defense, payroll taxes and more. Though the list of services is not as comprehensive as some of their competitors, it covers most client needs. The only major tax problem we found no information on was asset seizure.
Positive JG Tax Group Review
On our website, the company has received one solid review of 10 out of 10. The customer praises them for obtaining low monthly payments and lowering the client’s overall tax debt “dramatically.”
No Refund Information
No information about money back guarantees is listed on the JG Tax Group website. Presumably, if they had any sort of refund guarantee, it would be a selling point. The lack is not a good sign, particularly when many of their competitors offer refund windows of days or weeks.
No Money Back Guarantee
We were unable to find information on a money back guarantee from JG Tax Group.
Better Business Bureau Problem
JG Tax Group has only been in business since 2008, which might be a problem for people who prefer a company with a longer, more stable history. Also, though their Better Business Bureau score is not bad, at A- it could be better. In fact, the lowering factor is related to an advertising complaint at the BBB website in which a former customer claims they failed to provide the advertised service. To be fair, JG Tax Group has responded to this complaint, providing contract proof that the customer’s complaint is invalid.
There are only a couple of reviews on our website for this company. One is glowing, but the other is a poor 1 out of 10. The complaint seems to be related to the same issue mentioned on the BBB website, an Offer in Compromise service failure, with the added comment that the JG Tax Group employee was “unhelpful and condescending.”
Price varies depending on multiple factors including: the client’s’ situation, the amount of debt owed, and length of the debt, to list a few variables. During our contact with company representatives, our researchers were informed that in order to be fair on pricing, they must know the dynamics surrounding each case. For specific pricing information for individual situations you can call for a free consultation.
