Review Last Updated: June 29, 2016

Tax Tiger was founded in 2002 after CEO and founder Kathy Hill decided that she was uncomfortable working for another company in the industry. She decided to start her own company where the focus was on staying true to ethical principles and practices. Tax Tiger is now a thriving company with several franchises. They have saved clients more than $120 million with their tax relief services.

The Good

Tax Tiger can resolve a full spectrum of tax-related issues, including wage garnishments, which can usually be lifted the day they are hired. They have found particular success in helping clients with the IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC). This method is used when the taxpayer’s liability is high and ability to pay is low – meaning they have lower income or minimal assets to liquidate.

Tax Tiger Reviews | Saved Clients $120 MillionSince the company’s launch in 2002, they have helped thousands of Americans save over $119.7 million in back taxes, penalties, and accrued interest on accounts. The claim the actual amount clients have paid collectively is over $5.2 million. These figures represent a saves of 96 percent, or four cents on the dollar.

Tax Tiger is licensed to work in all 50 states and with expertise as enrolled agents, CPAs, and tax attorneys. Several of their attorneys hold LLMs in Taxation Law and some of their CPAs hold Master’s degrees in Taxation, giving clients peace of mind that their tax burden is being handled by representatives specially trained to perform and negotiate in the tax arena.

They offer interested consumers a blog dedicated to getting anyone up to par on all aspects tax related. Articles range from comparing billionaires to the middle class when it comes to taxes, tax resolution by state, and methods to avoid wage garnishment, among several others.

Our BDC experts recommend Tax Tiger on the following reasons:

  • A+ BBB rating
  • In business since 2002
  • Flat Rate pricing
  • CPA’s, Tax Attorneys and Enrolled Agents on staff

The Bad

Among a few concerns we have with Tax Tiger, this company claims to specialize in offer in compromise (OIC). It is very difficult to obtain an offer in compromise. We advise customers to be prepared if Tax Tiger can’t provide an OIC, since it is not common that the IRS grants one. Requirements to obtain an OIC are no delinquent returns, and no open bankruptcies, on top of all previous estimated tax payments and deposits must have been made in a timely manner. This method allows taxpayers to potentially see a reduction in overall debt via settlement, but keep in mind, not only will assets most likely lead to liquidation, but this process could take a couple of years to complete – even with an experienced professional.

Tax Tiger Refund Policy

While the company employs a staff of qualified and certified tax attorney’s, CPA’s, and Enrolled Agents, we would like to see the company hold memberships and accreditations with the industries top regulators and firms, such as the NAEA and AICPA.

On top of their overall lack of transparency regarding their fee structure, this company does not provide prospective clients the peace of mind of a refund policy.

We like to see the individual profiles listed of staff members that actually do the work on tax relief cases, not just the company leadership. We know the company is operating with several franchises, which means lots of employees, but potential clients like to be familiar with the whole tax relief team, not just the CEO.

  • No refund policy
  • Limited association memberships

Compare to the top rated tax debt relief companies

The Bottom Line

Tax Tiger’s over 13 years in business and high success shows their dedication to their clients. Tax Tiger provides solutions for customers, but we are concerned with their lack of a refund policy and their over advertised “offer in compromise.” We suggest potential customers be wary of their push for an offer in compromise in combination with no refund policy. With that being said, we recommend Tax Tiger on the basis the customer thoroughly does their research.

Overall, Tax Tiger provides good options for those looking for tax relief and we recommend taking advantage of their free consultation for a quote and to also check out our top recommended companies to compare their services.

Pricing

The price varies and is based on a flat fee matrix. When inquiring about specific pricing, we were informed that this aspect is impossible to assess without a full evaluation of each specific tax burden. They claim they can save clients 35 percent more than industry leaders; however this leaves the pricing door wide open, as all companies charge based on their own terms. Additionally, tax return preparation is priced separately from settlement and is based upon the complexity of the client’s situation.

Services

This company offers a number of services to clients including:

  • Offer in Compromise
  • Currently Non-Collectible Status
  • IRS Payment Plans
  • Property Tax Reduction
  • Unfiled Tax Returns and Back Tax Help
  • Penalty Abatement
  • IRS Audit Representation
  • Tax Lien Release
  • Tax Issue Research
  • Wage Garnishments Release
  • Bank Levy Release
  • Preventing Asset Seizure
  • Payroll and Trust Fund Recovery Penalties

Minimum Debt

Tax Tiger requires a minimum of $10,000 in tax debt.

BBB Rating

They are BBB accredited, which means they abide by the BBB’s complaint resolution standards and other requirements.  The company has maintained an A+ rating since 2005, an impressive credential in an industry full of situations that are wrought with anxiety, great expectations, and often disappointment. But they have made a good faith effort to resolve all consumer complaints—a number that is actually quite low. The company page even has positive reviews from customers posted, something we don’t see very often.

    Took my money and ran. Did nothing for me and cancelled me. IRS contacted me about these people. I lost all my money for nothing. Don’t even consider these people.

    I was very happy with Tax Tigers for the services that I initially contracted for and for which I paid a significant amount.

    However, once the initial task was successfully completed, and a problem related to maintaining the solution arose, Tax Tiger would not assist me even if I were willing to pay for the service. They refused to take any action that might have helped, convincing me that it would be ineffective. They did not even make a call…..so I now have had to hire an outside CPA/EA to assist me. And the POA signed by Tax Tiger was rescinded before the ink on my agreement was dry, again leaving me with no post issue support or service.

    While I am happy with the initial work, I am very unhappy with the service once the initial fix was done. It has been a great education for me about responsibility….my own!

    Last year found me frantically searching the Internet, hoping to find resolution to a major problem that had been growing exponentially for nine years. For five of those nine years I had not filed taxes. It was just a matter of time before the Internal Revenue Service caught up with me. Due to steep interest and penalties, my indebtedness was growing daily. My worry and anxiety grew at a similar pace. That anxiety often robbed me of sleep.

    While surfing the Internet, I came across a company named Tax Tiger. The interesting name caught my eye. I clicked on the “About Us” tab at the top of the page. A new page opened up and the very first sentence said that Tax Tiger was a “faith-based business.” That definitely caught my eye as I am a Christian and had been weighed down with a heavy load of shame for not obeying the law.

    Under the testimonials tab were letters from people stating that they owed huge amounts of back taxes. I read them all. Numerous people wrote that Tax Tiger had represented them before the IRS and how the IRS accepted a mere fraction of what they owed as payment in full.

    In this day of numerous scams, I was very skeptical. It all sounded too good to be true. But, my fear of the IRS was greater than my skepticism. I emailed Tax Tiger and the CEO herself, Kathy Hill, promptly called me on the phone. She explained what they would do for me. She also spoke of her faith in God. I decided to go for it.

    The entire process was lengthy, but the work was done for a flat fee. Ms. Hill’s team of professional tax experts worked with me diligently every step of the way. They prepared what is called an Offer of Compromise – offering the IRS a fraction of the money owed as payment in full. Not only did Ms. Hill’s staff work tirelessly for me, they also treated me with respect at a time when I felt so unworthy of respect.

    My home is 1,800 miles from Tax Tiger’s base in Sacramento, California, and it was wonderful that everything could be handled via email and the telephone. And, having a team of caring tax professionals between me and the IRS was a tremendous relief.

    Last week I found a letter from the IRS in my mailbox. Not knowing what to expect, my hands shook as I opened it up. The first sentence stated that my Offer in Compromise had been accepted! I know, I know, it sounds unbelievable, but the IRS accepted only $1,152.00 as payment in full for $37,027.00 owed in back taxes! I mailed a money order for $1,152.00 to the IRS yesterday, almost jumping for joy when leaving the post office. For the first time in several years, I slept soundly, knowing that the nine-year nightmare of fear, anxiety and shame was over.

    Be skeptical if you must, but what I write here is the unvarnished truth. If you are behind on your taxes you owe it to yourself to team up with the folks at Tax Tiger. I will be eternally grateful for what they did for me.

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.
