The Good

Success Tax Relief operates on the standard of transparency throughout, and as a smaller company, they take pride in having an open door policy, meaning they like to work with their customers face to face. They shine light into how many other companies in the industry operate, claiming “others” don’t allow consumers to know the company whereabouts, while they choose to inform consumers of their location, welcoming anyone with the desire to get tax problems solved with interpersonal interaction. Benefits of the Success Tax Relief service includes:

Features:

Key principles of Success Tax Relief are:

  • Free consultation
  • 27/7 business hours
  • ‘A’ rating with the BBB
  • Individualized attention
  • Payment plans are available
  • Can work in all 50 states
  • Transparency throughout

Free Consultation:

This full service tax relief company provides a toll-free number to take part in a free consultation, with 24/7 hours of operation as they understand not all clients are available during the corporate time clock – 9 to 5. During the consultation, expert representatives help consumers by dissecting their financial situation and created a customized plan of action to stop harassment from IRS agents.

Services/Plans:

The company offers a variety of plans from tax preparation and Offer in Compromise (OIC) to business funding, while keeping their clients informed and up to date each step of the way. Once enrolled into a program, professional representatives will act on their clients’ behalf and serve a mediator and advocate, with a bold claim they will provide compassionate and responsive service during the course of the program.

Pricing Quote:

A company willing to shine light on how their pricing structure is set up is rare in this industry, and although no one is able to get clear-cut pricing until a thorough evaluation is performed, Success Tax Relief provided our researchers with what they can expect to pay on a $20,000 tax debt. We were quoted a 10 percent flat fee and advised that clients unable to come up with a lump sum of cash have the option to set up a payment plan.

Educational Services:

In addition to tax relief services with exemplary staff response, this company does fairly well in their attempt to keep consumers, and clients alike, informed on all things tax related. Educational information is provided within a glossary of tax terms, with a plethora of definitions helping to increase tax vocabulary. An up to date blog is also offered with articles discussing how tax exemptions work, who qualifies, and how to prepare for tax debt during the holidays, among several other well written articles.

The Bad

While there is no doubt that Success Tax Relief has the knowledge and understanding of the tax code and how to navigate it in order to help clients, there are some limitations consumers should be aware of. These drawbacks include the following items:

Small Staff:

Success Tax Relief is not a large company, and while some clients may appreciate the level of personalized attention, it’s important to keep in mind a company of this stature may not be able to handle several of clients at once in a timely manner. Their small business mentality is a positive and a negative in that way as their resolve time may take longer than most, although they offer some of the best pricing for tax relief services we’ve seen.

Refund Policy:

Another concern lies within the company’s refund policy. Consumers appreciate the peace of mind of a refund policy, although Success Tax Relief’s policy is limited to 3 days. This leaves no room for clients to decide whether or not they are satisfied with actions performed during the program.

The Bottom Line

Success Tax Relief is a personable tax relief company based out of Houston, TX and extends their services to consumers nationwide. For those with the desire for face-to-face interaction, this may not be the company to enroll with, but for those who still appreciate personalized phone service with 24/7 hours, we recommend giving them a call. They do well to offer educational materials and their pricing matrix is competitive. Overall, we recommend giving this small company a call to see if they can meet your tax needs; if not, we recommend some of our other top rated companies.

More Info:

Pricing

A flat rate quoted for a $20,000 tax debt was $2,000. That is 10 percent of the total amount of debt consumers have. Please keep in mind, other services may carry a higher price tag. The company does well to offer payment plans for those unable to come up with a lump sum at the time of enrollment. Our advice is to take advantage of the consultation to determine the exact amount of your unique case.

  • Offer in Compromise

  • Installment Agreements
  • Settle Back Taxes
  • Stop Liens, Levies and Garnishments

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.
