Safe Harbor’s website no longer exists. For this reason, we believe the company is out of business. Please check out our top companies below for tax relief services:

The Good

This company is no longer in business.

The Bad

This company is no longer in business

Price

Price is based on the scope of work that is involved. Some of it is billed hourly and some is billed on retainer, depending on the service you need. Safe Harbor will pull an 8821, which allows them to discuss your tax issues with the IRS. This form is free of charge and will give them a way to see your overall tax status to give you an accurate quote on their services.

Minimum Tax Debt Accepted

No minimum. Whatever a client needs, Safe Harbor Financial Consultants can potentially handle it, though they ask consumers with less than $10,000 to call 800-829-1040.

Time In Business

11 years. Safe Harbor Financial Consultants has been in business since 2004.

BBB Rating

Safe Harbor Financial Consultants is accredited and currently has an A+ BBB rating.  There have been no complaints listed with the BBB in the last three years. For a company that has been in business for many years, this is a reassuring rating.

Types of Services Available

  • Tax Liens
  • Tax Levy and Garnishment

    I would stay away from Safe Harbor.
    could never talk to the same person.
    I would get voicemails telling me about e-mails that they were sending that I could never find.
    Bottom line it was a waste of money and time, and got nothing resolved.

    I am sharing a review that I posted on Google because I believe so strongly in this company. I have only great things to say about Safe Harbor Financial. They were and still are amazing. By the grace of God we stumbled across them when we were involved in a company having tax lien issues. They later helped with personal tax issues to clear them up as well. Not only did they take the fear out of the unknown, they filtered through all of the complicated paperwork. Their team made us feel important and cared about what we were going through. But bottom line, I would recommend them to anyone!

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.
