Tax Defense Network Complaint - Warning!!! - Tax "assistance"
Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY. This company scammed me. They speak consolingly and understandably assuring you that they can help to resolve your Tax problems. Their sales people will never speak to you again once you are are signed up and none of their promises will be fulfilled. Once you have submitted all the required paperwork and pay them (over $4000), they lead you to believe that their team of attorneys are hard at work on your case. They also let a span of time to go by giving you the impression that your case is in arbitration and negotiations with the IRS, again assuring you that their attorneys are working hard for you. After many months, they contact you (claiming it is good news) to tell you that your Tax case is out of the IRS and that the IRS will send a letter. The letter you will receive from the IRS is not a reduction of my owed Tax nor a reduction or waiving of penalties. It is simply a repayment plan for the whole tax PLUS penalties !!! This was not good news !!! I could have done - and know how to do - what Tax Defense Network did for only $43. All that this compnay does is prepare a form requesting a repayment plan for the owed tax. You don't need an attorney for that, anyone can do this and the form and instructions are on the IRS website. I paid them over $4000 to do what I could have done myself for $43. They led me to believe that their attorneys were negotiating a favorable deal with the IRS. This was not the case. Plus, during the many months of this supposed negotiation, I was still being penalized. This company is a scam. I am extremely upset because I work very hard for my money and Tax Defense Network has no conscience about doing business in this manner. They monitor their internet presence and pay people to remove any truth. Employees of this organization post misleading, favorable reviews. Do not fall for them
