At Top Tax Defenders, we are fully committed to operational transparency. We make every effort to provide accurate, timely reports of our achievements as well as our shortcomings. Since we value the business of each and every one of our clients, we believe that this is simply the "right thing to do."
Accurate, unbiased reporting on our tax relief success rate also serves as a valuable educational tool that current and prospective clients can use to calibrate their expectations for our tax services. Feel free to compare the statistics that we provide below to those of our competitors. Again, it is important to keep in mind that many tax relief firms do not provide such detailed success-rate reporting due to inconsistent performance.
Top Tax Defenders has a rigorous case review process that identifies taxpayers who have relatively high chances of securing concessions from federal tax authorities. The IRS is a large, complex organization that maintains strict and often confusing standards for tax relief eligibility. While it might seem unfair for us to exclude certain taxpayers from our services, we only do so when we know that our services will be of limited utility. In other words, Top Tax Defenders has no interest in adding to the financial woes of individual taxpayers by charging them for services that they do not need.
However, we do make every effort to connect overburdened taxpayers with useful information about a range of tax relief options. If we judge that our services are unsuitable for a particular prospect, we provide expert guidance about alternatives that may prove to be more helpful.
Below, we outline selected tax settlement results that Top Tax Defenders has achieved. Keep in mind that these results are specific to successful cases in which clients qualified for tax relief help under applicable state and IRS guidelines. Additionally, our most successful clients scrupulously follow our guidance and advice throughout the tax relief process.
While we make every effort to keep a fair and accurate accounting of our tax relief success rate, we must caution that every case is different. Your individual results may vary from the resolved-case statistics that we have tabulated below. Although we provide favorable results for the vast majority of our clients, we cannot absolutely guarantee that your case will produce a satisfactory outcome. Before soliciting our services, please take a moment to read and understand all of the tax relief information that we provide on our website.
*Amounts are based on previous results; individual results will vary depending upon your ability to provide Top Tax Defenders with timely and accurate information. Fees are not included in resolution/settlement outcomes. We cannot guarantee that your tax liability will be lowered by a specific amount or percentage, or that your tax liability will be paid off within a specified time period. Top Tax Defenders will offer possible solutions to a prospective client after all relevant information is obtained during the initial consultation. While solutions will be offered to client, there is no guarantee of results implied or otherwise.
