10 ‘Optima Tax Relief’ Reviews
I can breathe again!
Optima Tax Relief saved me. The IRS sent me notices stating that I owed them almost $100,000. I felt like I exhausted all of my options - I went to a well known tax service in my county and they pretty much told me "I was in big trouble" without helping me resolve this or give me any advice on what to do. I lost sleep, I was so stressed, it was just a really rough time for me. When I was driving, I heard an ad on the radio from Optima Tax Relief so I decided to give them a call. At this point, I really didn't have a lot of hope. The gal I spoke with, Brooke, was awesome. She seemed to really care about what was happening to me. I was so thankful at this point that I found someone not only to listen to me, but to actually relay empathy to my situation. In addition, Optima Tax Relief made sure the IRS wouldn't come to my work, bank , or garnish my pay checks to collect funds from me, like their letters were threatening to do. I feel an overwhelming sense of protection and gratitude to Brooke and this company. I'm now on a manageable payment plan and in the end they will be taking 50% of my tax debt away. I am so thankful for them and will recommend Optima Tax Relief to all of my friends and family. I feel like I can actually breathe and sleep again.
Optima's Name Truly Fit What They Did For Me..RELIEF!
I got my family's taxes in a complete mess. I owed so much I didn't know what to do. I was scared, embarrassed and depressed. I needed help, but I was afraid to let anyone know. I kept hear Optima Tax Relief's commercials on my radio and finally decided to call. Boy am I glad I did. The staff and attorneys couldn't have been more helpful. They were professional, well trained and PATIENT, more then patient. When you have the IRS at your door, it is not something I'd wish on any one. Optima stopped the garnishment, worked out a settlement and it's just great now. They truly are the light at the end of the dark, dark tunnel guiding you all the way. Thank you, thank you, thank you
My experience with Optima's no releif but grief.
In a nutshell. After quickly taking my $1000.00 dollars within 3 days called me to tell me I owed $65000.00 and they wanted $15000.00 to represent me.After I got up off the floor I went online and took advantage of the cancellation period. Optima told me that if i represent myself it would be a nightmare what they would do to me. So I decided to represent myself. I settled with the IRS on 2 years worth of tax expense audits for $7000.00. They use scare tactics and they think everyone is dumb. Nothing but a bunch of bullies.
THIS IS A JOKE!!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
MY HUSBAND AND I STARTED WITH THIS COMPANY AND WE GOT NO HELP FROM THEM AT ALL. THE ONLY THING GUARANTEED ABOUT THEM IS THE MONTHLY WITHDRAWALS FROM OUR BANK ACCOUNT. WE ARE THE ONES THAT CALLED THE IRS WEEKLY. ANYTIME SOMETHING HAPPENED WE WOULD CALL OPTIMA TAX AND THE ONLY ANSWER WE EVER GOT WAS "OH, THEY ARENT SUPPOSED TO DO THAT. WE WILL CALL THEM". THEY NEVER CALLED US BACK WHEN THEY SAID THEY WOULD. WE WOULD END UP HAVING TO CALL THE IRS OURSELVES AND WE JUST NOW HAVE REACHED A SETTLEMENT WITH THE IRS AND IT WAS ALL DONE ON OUR TIME AND WITH OUR PHONE CALLS. YET THE MONTHLY DISBURSEMENT IS STILL BEING TAKEN OUT OF OUR ACCOUNT AND FOR NOTHING!!! WE HAVENT HEARD FROM OUR REPRESENTATIVE IN A MONTH!!! WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!
"Anastasia" called us constantly until we forked over the $1000. After a month we were informed that they could set up a payment plan for us. We already had a payment plan with the IRS and it didn't cost us $1000. She said "according to the information you gave us" where she was referring to the original estimates I had given her over the phone and not the actual documents I had sent her. I knew then that it was all bull. She was trying to get another $2000 to see how "further" they could go with this. You know when someone is selling something and they use a lot of words and don't really say anything? That's Optima Tax Relief and Anastasia. Don't waste your money. I'm willing to bet most of these reviews are generated by OTR itself.
BTW, our tax problems stemmed form the Real Estate collapse back in 06. My husband built 10 houses and lost money on all of them, but we still ended up with a big tax bill because we lost so much money we couldn't stay current with taxes. I also lost my part time job that I made $11,000 on last year because the company closed. I still have my full time job though. Gotta pay those taxes.
