Review Last Updated: June 29, 2016

Nationwide Tax Group is a full service tax resolution firm licensed to extend services across the nation, although we have reason to believe they are no longer in business. Enrolled Agents, Tax Attorney’s, and CPA’s bring clients decades of combined experience to help reduce or eliminate individual and business owner tax debt.

The Good

Nationwide Tax Group is open 14 hours a day allowing busy clients to make contact with their team of representatives during hours most convenient for them. Free consultations are also extended during these hours where a tax resolution specialist will shine light onto each tax burden and offer the most suitable solution to resolved unwanted tax debt. Consultations are thorough and may require about half hour to fully assess the financial burden of each potential client.

NTG offers an extensive list of services to meet the needs of several tax issues such as levies, settlements, and Offers in Compromise. They work with each client to get back taxes filed and reduce tax debt through their product offering.

They claim to be transparent and honest with their clients. In fact, it seems throughout their website they continually boast about their honest, upfront, and client service-oriented approach. We found they were pretty open with their pricing structure, whereas several companies in this industry have refused to communicate how their pricing is established and how it’s broken down until it’s time to sign the contract. NTG requires half of the fee upfront to retain services and to ensure funding is available to immediately begin working on cases.

Detailed descriptions of staff members are highlighted on the company website allowing consumers to get a feel of who they may be teamed up with if they decide to enroll with Nationwide Tax Group.

Highlights to consider with Nationwide Tax Group include:

  • Free and thorough consultation
  • Full staff of Enrolled Agents, CPA’s and Tax Attorneys
  • Competitive pricing for the industry
  • Members of NAEA and NATP

The Bad

One of our major concerns with Nationwide Tax Group, and will certainly make consumers feel uneasy about giving them a call, is their poor rating with the BBB. The Better Business Bureau gave the company an ‘F’ because they have a habit of refusing to respond to complaints. This takes merit from their boasts about honesty, integrity, and working in the best interest of the client.

A company should never solely be judged on a website; however Nationwide Tax group has some coding errors taking merit from their credibility as business. Collectively, the website appears as though it was thrown together and completely lacks organization making it hard to decipher who they are and what they are all about. This is another attribute that will certainly cause anyone to feel a little uneasy about hiring the company.

Several companies in this industry do well to provide additional resources and educational materials for consumer and clients to fill up on. This company does nothing to promote financial literacy, and although they have some social media presence, sites have not been updated since 2012 – that’s 3 years of social media neglect. Two consumer reviews have recently been left on their Facebook page, both within the past month, and both rating their company with one star. One consumer complained that no one returns calls or emails.

On the matter of phone calls and emails, we, too, have yet to hear from the company’s representatives. During our research we found the company has an unresponsive (or “busy” tone) number. This may suggest the company is out of business, although due to the fact that we couldn’t reach them, we can’t confirm this.

The Bottom Line

Nationwide Tax group has a variety of talented staff members and have reasonably priced services. But through our ranking criteria we feel that there are other companies that will better serve you. Overall, because of their poor BBB rating, several consumers’ complaints of unresponsive service, and lack of a working phone number, we cannot recommend this company and suggest visiting our top recommended companies.

    Do not ever hire this company. They will take your money and not help you when you really need it. In our case they did almost nothing at all. I wouldn’t send my worse enemy to these people. You are way better off hiring someone local to you that will actually answer your phone calls and emails or texts. We have tried to contact this guy so many times that we just finally gave up and hired someone in our home town. Good luck if you hire this guy Robert Barnett/Nationwide. They will do the same thing to you, just look at all the reviews in the BBB website u see Nationwide Tax Group. All these different people have one thing in common. They all have these people money and they all got ripped off.

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.
