Over the last two decades and countin, Moskowitz LLP has helped those burdened by IRS penalties find relief through legally navigating the tax code and ensuring that taxpayers’ rights are protected. The Moskowitz LLP tax relief process poses a number of benefits to clients including the following items:
Long, Stable History:
In business since 1996, Moskowitz LLP is among the oldest companies in the tax debt relief industry. Since their founding, they have grown steadily, adding a wide variety of experts and tax professionals to their staff.
To their team of Tax Attorneys, Enrolled Agents and CPAs, Moskowitz has added professional translators, fluent in Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese and various other languages. This enables them to help people all over the world who are dealing with American tax problems. Some members of their team have over 30 years of experience in all aspects of tax law.
Their website has a helpful blog that covers various tax-related topics, such as IRS regulations, deductions and employment taxes. The blog is updated every few days with new articles, providing an ongoing resource for customers.
The list of services they provide covers a wide array of needs, more than many of their competitors. They have services listed under the following sub-headings: Business Tax Law, Criminal Tax Law, Tax Planning, Tax Preparation, Real Estate, Whistleblower Program, Tax Audits / Disputes & Litigation and Industry Specific.
While the Moskowitz LLP firm has found a way to help their clients obtain financial freedom even after the IRS attacks them, there are still some pitfalls prospective customers should be aware of. These limitations include:
Lack of Accolades:
The website for Moskowitz LLC doesn’t boast of many accolades, awards or prestigious memberships. The one thing they point to is an interview in the New York Times in 2015 that featured their founding partner, Steve Moskowitz, but the article wasn’t about him specifically.
Lack of Refund Policy:
Moskowitz LLC doesn’t spell out a clear refund policy. If they had one, and if it was any good, surely they would mention it. The lack of a refund policy, in an industry where some companies have refund windows of days or weeks, might be viewed by some potential customers as a negative.
Moskowitz, LLP has a $500 consultation fee. Their complete fee is dependent on the service required but typically is based on a flat fee of $5,000 according to several client reviews scattered around the web. Others have claimed representatives will inquire about how much money is in their checking and savings accounts, and then quote them the entire amount therein. This may be the case for those without the $5,000 on hand.
Moskowitz, LLP currently has no rating with the BBB.
