If you or your business has ever received a tax lien from the state or IRS you may have received a call from someone at Larson Tax Relief asking you if they can help with your tax issues. We suspect this is off-putting to many people, especially in the age of rampant tax-related phone scams and direct to voicemail spamming. At the same, these tax lien generated calls must be very helpful to people who are (rightfully) suspicious of all the big promises about IRS savings on TV and radio commercials, as Larson Tax Relief has been calling taxpayers to offer their services for over a decade. Larson Tax Relief also does Internet advertising and radio commercials.
Larson Tax Relief’s website has ample information on both federal and state taxes, with an informational tone. They do not over-promise huge savings, which is a good sign. The people at Larson Tax Relief do an honest job explaining both the consequences of owing taxes and the options available to the taxpayer. We found all explanations within the tax code. They did not promise to make the tax debt disappear. This is refreshing because most tax relief companies fall into two categories: Fear or hope. They either try to scare you that the IRS will lock you in jail or they promise that they will make your tax debt vanish.
Larson Tax Relief gets high marks here because they list a lot of personnel, from managers to senior staff, on their website. They are one of the few companies to list their Senior Consultants – the person you would speak with during an initial consultation to determine if you have a problem that is a good fit for their tax relief services. The majority of their Senior Consultants are also Enrolled Agents*, which dramatically sets them apart from most other tax relief companies.
Enrolled Agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights.
Larson Tax Relief also lists their physical address. This may seem like an obvious and normal thing to do, but many tax relief companies are very opaque in this regard. We believe that if you are trying to hide something, there must be something are hiding.
Larson Tax Relief is listed in the Denver BBB as a member since 2006, with an A+ rating. As of September 2017, they show 48 customer reviews and zero complaints with the BBB. While they have a large number of attorneys on staff, all of them are also accredited, Enrolled Agents, according to their about page. These dual credentials sets them apart from many other tax relief companies.
Though not technically an accreditation, they have been named by the Denver Post as a Top Workplace 2012-2018. They are also accredited by Consumer Affairs, a consumer advocacy company that posts reviews from verified clients.
Larson Financial Inc, dba Larson Tax Relief, was founded in 2005 by Jack and Ron Larson, brothers.
Larson Tax Relief offers a satisfaction guarantee, which we like to see more than a guarantee of a specific result. No one can guarantee a specific result when dealing with taxes or legal issues. A company or tax professional can and should, however, stand by their competency, work ethic, and past results.
We didn’t find any negatives, like lawsuits or professional sanctions against Larson Tax Relief.
They also have Trust Pilot Reviews on their website. Trust Pilot is a third-party testimonial collections company that allows testimonials from only verified customers. They also receive excellent reviews on Consumer Affairs and the BBB. If you have happy clients you are probably ethical too.
