The Good

Larson Tax Relief has received a lot of positive reviews around the web from former clients and can be seen on some reputable sources such as the BBB, where they have received 55 positive client experience reviews. In addition to the positive client ratings, the BBB has given them an A+ rating and only two consumer complaints have been filed and close in the past three years, proving they are capable of satisfying clients’ tax debt. Other benefits of the Larson Tax Relief service include:

Free Evaluation:

Free consumer evaluations are provided by calling their toll-free number where a consultant will be available to further assess each financial situation of the caller. Senior consultants staffed by the company have several years of personal and collective experience in discovering the most suitable solution to tax issues.

Business Owner Services:

For business owners seeking tax relief, several of LTR’s team members not only have extensive experience in the business sector, but are also business owners themselves and offer explanations to help educate clients on what they can accomplish even under the most complex of cases. Team members holding J.D. degrees have helped those with minor tax debts to tax debts amounting to over two million dollars, which helps to create a safe atmosphere for clients under an extreme tax burden.

Features:

Larson Tax Relief service highlights include:

  • Enrolled Agents, CPA’s and Tax Attorneys on staff
  • Has a Continuing Education certification from the IRS, meaning that EAs are continually being updated on the tax code and IRS practices
  • 15 day return policy on all customer fees.
  • They offer payment plans
  • A+ BBB rating, and have addressed all complaints received by BBB and other review sites
  • In 2014, they were awarded the BBB Torch Award for Customer Service
  • Represents clients in all 50 states

Penalty Relief:

LTR offers clients an broad spectrum of relief options including emergency and long term relief. Several clients were able to get an Offer in Compromise that reduced their tax liability 35% or more, which is difficult to achieve due to the dynamics surrounding these plans.

Standard Pricing:

Although pricing is unclear, but it seems to be the industry standard, LTR offers clients a 15-day money back guarantee on fees paid if clients are unsatisfied with their services. If, however, after 15 days clients become unsatisfied, they will refund a prorated amount, refunding any unused balance of the service fee.

The Bad

While Larson Tax Relief has many positives aspects, no company is perfect. Some of our concerns include their lack of memberships and accreditations with the industry’s professional organizations. The company owner is a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) and the National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), but the team members, or the company as a whole, do not retain these same memberships. Other limitations include:

Limited Education:

Additionally, clients would like to see the company do more to educate consumers visiting their website by offering resources and tools to help strengthen their financial fitness. For a company with a decade of experience, not supplying these additional materials is cause for concern, as many of their competitors do well to provide information free of charge; however, enrolled clients will benefit from the team of representatives extensive knowledge.

The Bottom Line

Larson Tax Relief has a full staff of CPA’s, Tax Attorneys and Enrolled Agents to assist clients in all 50 states. They extend their services to individual taxpayers and businesses to resolve state and IRS tax related issues. We recommend calling to determine if their services can meet your needs as well as to gain a better estimate of pricing. If not, we recommend investigating our top recommended companies.

More Info:

Pricing

Larson Tax Relief will not offer quotes over the phone. Prices and fees vary upon the type of service required, and are assessed on an up-front fee as an estimate, and then they keep track of their time on an hourly basis. They do not provide a one-time flat fee for their services.

Services

Larson Tax Relief offers the following tax services:

  • Installment agreements
  • Offers in compromise
  • Wage garnishment
  • Bank levy
  • Partial pay installment agreement
  • Currently not collectible status
  • Unfiled tax returns
  • Tax liens issues

Minimum Debt

There is no minimum amount of tax debt one must hold in order to retain services with LTR. We were able to work with different tax debt settlements over the phone that would let us set up a payment plan for various amounts.

Time in Business

Up-front Fees

There is a service fee that Larson Tax Relief charges, that is based upon the type of service rendered. This functions as a retainer fee, which goes into the law firm’s trust fund and is paid out to the lawyer over time. You will need to contact them to determine the amount, or if a fee is applicable to your situation.

Tax Attorney on Staff

Yes. Larson Tax Relief has several lawyers on staff, many of which studied tax relief and tax law while earning their JD. You can read about these tax attorneys in their bios under the “About Us” section.

CPA on Staff

Yes. Even though none of the associates with Larsen Tax Relief have a CPA listed on their website bio, many of them have studied accounting and most are enrolled agents that are allowed to practice before the IRS.

Professional Associations

Larson association certifications include National Association of Enrolled Agents and the IRS Approved Continuing Education Provider. John Larson, the company president, is also a member of NATP.

Enrolled Agent

The enrolled agents with Larson are allowed to work in all fifty states. There are several enrolled agents on staff, many of them with a JD and study in tax law.

Refund Policy

If you are unhappy with Larson, they will return all of your fees within the first fifteen days. After the first fifteen days, you are entitled to the unused portion of your service fees. This was one of the better refund policies within the industry.

Additional Notes

We liked Larson’s refund policy. It was explained on the phone clearly. We liked that if we weren’t happy with their services, all the service fees were fully refunded within the first 15 days, and that you can also get a partial refund of your service fees after the first fifteen days.

Poll

  • When looking for a debt settlement company, which of these two aspects is most important to you?
  • Takes your existing debt and try to settle with your creditors for a lower amount. If you pay off the settled amount, your debt will be considered paid in full.
  • Negotiates with your creditors on your behalf.
  • Fee based on a percentage of your total starting debt or a percentage of the debt they save you.
  • Most settlement companies have you create a separate "escrow" account where you will make monthly contributions over a certain amount of time to contribute to your settlement. Once there is a substantial amount of funds to show your creditors, the settlement company will try to negotiate a lower amount of debt.
  • Combines all your debts and creditors into one monthly payment.
  • Allows you to pay one monthly payment to the consolidation company, instead of multiple payments to different creditors.
  • You no longer owe your original creditors; instead you pay one monthly payment to your consolidation company.
  • Consolidation companies can help negotiate lower interest rates on your debts and help lower your total debt payment in the long run. A lower interest rate will lower the amount you owe in the end.
  • Allows you to consolidate all your different debts into one personal loan that can be paid off over time.
  • Can offer borrowers a lower interest rate with a longer payback term (compared to high-interest credit cards or medical bills). This will lower the amount of money required to pay off the loan over time.
  • Personal loan debt consolidation can be an effective way to raise your credit score quickly (within 3-6 months).
  • Borrowers can receive funds from their loan within only a few days.
