Industry Stalwarts - Companies that Have Been in it for the Long Haul
Questionable Companies: Companies that Have Torched their BBB records
New Companies from 2008 - onward
Companies That Are Gone - Closed
From 1998 to 2013 - about 42 companies with national aspirations of representing people on their tax problems - went under - that is a pretty astonishing figure I think - and a statistic - that should make you wary of hiring anyone to represent you on your tax problem.
But really - when push comes to shove - how can you be assured that you won't get ripped off and abandoned by your representative? Making sure who the licensed tax professional is on staff handling your case. Even if a company closes - this person is ethically obligated to continue to represent you! Even if the company closed. Knowing that person's name and their license requirements is important when hiring a firm -- Just in CASE!
From 9am to 5pm Pacific time, Marty Griffith and I - two experts on tax representation issues are available to take your calls.
