They have already paid $3000 to the now defunct JK Harris to resolve their tax problem (JK Harris' new home: Graveyard of Tax Resolution Companies)
They called Tax Defenders and Chicago and paid them $950.00 to resolve this. Not a bad fee - except - after they did the initial research -- they are asking for ANOTHER $6900.00 to handle the case! Utterly ridiculous.
Tax Defense Network in Florida charged them $4500.00 to handle the case.
My company, Washington Tax Services, charged her $1375.00 in sympathy to the money she has already paid Tax Defenders and JK Harris.
Folks, if your case is in Automated Collection Systems -- which means you owe less than $100,000 in personal taxes -- you really don't need to pay anyone more than $2550.00 for representation as long as most of your tax returns are filed.
I have illustrated other fee comparisons in previous posts :
You can see Tax Defenders and Tax Defense Network and other good and bad companies on my survey of tax resolution companies:
