Last week we found a very discerning buyer - who was just about to invest $5875.00 in the services of US Tax Shield based out of Encino, CA. Now - don't get us wrong - we think US Tax shield runs a decent shop. They invest in professionals and their customer service reps even research every new customer's record before they receive any retainer fee!
However, Washington Tax Services quoted the same customer $2200.00 to handle the identical case - including 4 unfiled Federal and State tax returns. That's a $3675.00 difference!
UPDATE: This morning - January 9, 2013 - we also spoke with an individual who was quoted a $6250 fee to handle his IRS problem by US Tax Shield - our fee was $2250.00.
