Original review: Nov. 20, 2018

My experience with my tax advisors have been pleasant. They would keep me informed of what was going on work with me to get the necessary documents needed. It took me a while to get used to only speaking with them via email mail or by phone instead of meet with them in person. I would recommend their services to anyone who is having Tax Issues.

I had the occasion to work with Veronica ** throughout the duration of my case. Veronica kept me abreast of the status of the process, what the next courses of action were and took the initiative to maintain correspondence, by phone, email and postal mail, with all parties involved in bringing the process to a successful and expedient conclusion. I am very pleased with the quality of the follow up and attention to detail that resulted in a satisfactory conclusion to the matter. I highly recommend Veronica for her consummate professionalism and cheerful demeanor. Michael ** and Veronica ** are a formidable, client focused, results driven team.

Original review: Nov. 1, 2018

This was by far the best experience I had dealing with what I considered a rather difficult situation. Bad audits mixed with not filing properly left me in quite a bind. This was clearly not as bad as I thought after speaking with Rich and hearing him explain all of my options. Nothing was ever promised and his honest approach was absolutely what I needed after going through other companies that did not provide the same level of integrity. Every concern and/or question I had was answered promptly. There was a very clear line of communication and I truly appreciate the service that was provided. So far I have recommended to several friends and family members. Keep up the good work!

Larson Tax Relief really helped my wife and I with taxes that were delinquent which caused us a lot of anxiety and we just didn’t know where to turn to. Michael and Veronica were extremely helpful and took charge of our case and took off all the pressure that took a toll in our life. I would recommend the Larson team to anyone that needs help with any kind of tax issues because they really get the work done!

We had a great experience with Larson Financial. We worked with several of their staff members and all of them were very professional and treated us as individuals, not just a number. They did not judge us based on our circumstances. They listened and reassured us that if we followed the instructions given that they would be able to help us communicate with the IRS about our situation in a quick and fairly simple manner with a favorable outcome. While in our case the debt was not able to be relieved, They were able to settle with an uncollectable status that met both our need and calmed the situation with the IRS. I would highly recommend Larson's if you are in need of help with a debt owed to the IRS.

My experience with Larson Tax Relief has been a huge blessing to me. I was blessed to have my case assigned to a wonderful man, Ted **. Mr. ** went above and beyond anything I could have expected to bring my case to a resolution that was favorable to me. Mine was a difficult case, with an IRS agent who was determined to not budge or cooperate with me or Mr. **, but Mr. ** never gave up. All throughout the process of resolution, Mr. ** and his assistant were encouraging and positive, even when my situation didn't seem positive. Mr. ** always took time to keep me updated and genuinely cared about what happened to me. He fought on my behalf and I am forever grateful. I would highly recommend this firm, and especially Mr. **, to anyone who needs help resolving any tax issue. In this world we live in, Mr. ** is a rare treasure to find!

I came to Larson Financial with tax challenges and really didn't know what to expect as I had bad experiences in the past with tax resolution companies. Most companies over promise and under deliver but not Larson. Michael and his staff have very friendly and professional service and are always available to answer questions and concerns. I would recommend them highly to anyone needing tax issues resolved.

Sometimes having a bad experience with one of our competitors keeps people from trying someone else in our industry. We are very proud of what we do here, and are happy you were willing to take the leap and hire a second tax firm (us)! We truly appreciate the recommendation.

Outstanding communication. Helped with the various forms and requirements. Explained very step in layman terms. Always available or if voice mail left, get a call back immediately. Called and emailed me on weekends - even Sundays on his day off to tell me critical information. Highly recommended. I would not want anyone else representing me. He took my anxiety level from a 10+ to a more manageable level. Very clear in what he needed in documentation and always explained the next steps in the process so I was never surprised. Rate a 10 out of a 10.

We are not a very big business and sometimes it's hard for people to give us the same customer service as a larger place. I first just want to say that everyone at Larson has been very good with us, but we deal a lot with Nicole on most issues and she always takes the time to treat us with care and concern, not just her job but she goes the extra mile to make you feel like you matter as a person and as her client. Larson financial has done everything they said they would and by far more than that, and to be treated like you matter to people says more than the awesome job they do. We would recommend this company to everyone, and thank you again Nicole for treating us with such great care and concern, at the end of the day we feel we are in great hands.

From my experience and in my opinion, there is not a single negative thing I can think to say about this company. On the plus side: Total competence, from everyone I had dealings with. PLUS! Kindness, cheerfulness, willingness to go the last mile, and a completely nonjudgemental attitude. If everyone: Leona **, Betty **, Sean **, and the lovely girl who answers their phone, are any example of the quality of people they hire... Believe me, you will be in excellent hands no matter who handles your case. Do choose this company, you will absolutely not regret it!

One day my bank account was frozen by a State tax agency on a Friday night due to an unresolved tax debt... That is a horrible thing for anyone to experience. I thought I had time to deal with come tax season. I was wrong. It was the worst possible scenario and I faced losing all the funds in the account. I found Larson Financial online, called them on a Friday night and I got a callback. The person said someone would call me back. Saturday morning at 7 am I received a call from Bo at Larson Financial who assured me they could help me after I answered a few questions. By the following Monday I had Jay assigned to my case and immediately I knew I was in good hands. Every day I heard from him several times a day. The matter was resolved successfully and was happy with the outcome.

There is no way I would have had the time or the expertise to deal with this. Before I even asked, Jay suggested he approach the IRS before they approached me so we resolved both tax issues at once. There is no greater stress than having tax problems... All my stress was gone once I spoke to the people at Larson. They are there to help people like me who by circumstances find themselves facing tax issues. I highly recommend Larson Financial to anyone having tax issues with a State Tax Agency or the IRS. In either case they are the ones that you need to contact. Thank you Larson Financial for giving me back peace of mind.

I had the honor of working with Rich. He was there for me after hours and on the weekend. His hard work saved my company. He was able to answer all of my questions and point me in the right direction to assure all the information I was providing him was accurate. If I hear anyone say they are looking for help to IRS I tell them to give Rich a call. I cannot thank Rich enough, he gave me my peace of mind back. I can once again focus on taking care of my customers for many years to come.

I cannot say enough good things about Larson Financial, Steve ** and the entire staff. They worked diligently and thoroughly on my case. The IRS can be very daunting to deal with and trying to handle my affairs myself would have been impossible. The people at Larson have taken what has been one of the darkest times of my life and have helped me understand severe financial difficulties do not have to mean "end of life as we know it." Though things are still difficult they are not insurmountable. I would not hesitate to recommend Larson Financial to anyone and I know that if I ever found myself with an IRS issue in the future they would be the first people I would call.

Michael ** and Nathan ** has been working on defending my tax issues for a very long time and have been keeping the tax authorities at bay in every way possible. Last week, a very large IRS tax levy hit two of my business accounts and through diligence, finesse and ingenuity, Michael was able to fully reverse both tax levies. His efforts have made the difference between staying in business and having to close my law practice of 18 years. He saved the jobs of my staff and my license to practice in the process. I cannot possible say enough to express my gratitude. I truly appreciative Michael and the whole Larson team. I have other companies try to take my business away all the time and I tell them to stop calling me and that I have my tax issues thoroughly covered. Thanks again Michael. You are a tax issue wizard in my opinion.

MY name is Kijuan, and My experience with Larson tax relief was simply OUTSTANDING! I owed the irs over 60,000 dollars and was worried and unsure of who to turn to, until I contacted Larson. With so many different tax solution companies making unrealistic promises it was hard to know who to trust. From beginning to end the staff at Larson were so professional and realistic and explaining the ways that they could help me in my tax situation. MY tax attorney Steve really comforted me in my time of worry and always answered my calls and emails promptly if I had and questions. I REALLY recommend Larson Tax relief for anyone serious about resolving there tax situation.

I found Larson Financial via google after receiving numerous letters from the IRS. Needless to say I was very skeptical when calling because you hear of so many scams pertaining to tax relief companies. I was at my wits end, stressed, worried and losing sleep over my tax issues. I did try to call and deal with an IRS collections agent myself, but that was of no help or benefit and instead of comforting, caused me even more stress. They were on the verge of garnishing my wages at any moment.

I nervously called Larson Financial and spoke to Lucas. I explained the numerous issues I was having and stressed the fact that I live paycheck to paycheck and could not afford to spend money I didn't have if there was nothing they could do for me. He assured me they could help and even allowed me to split their fee and set up payments as to when I could afford them. I was emailed multiple links in order to verify they were a legitimate company, and was also sent phone numbers of previous clients that I could call and ask questions (And I did call and speak with two of them). They have a refund policy that made me feel a bit more reassured as well.

From the beginning, as soon as I returned the signed paperwork, they were very fast and efficient in explaining what they were doing and what I should expect. Their team kept in constant communication and any questions I had, had no problems getting anyone on the line for advice, or answers. They were able to get a payment arrangement accepted by the IRS that I could afford and was VERY happy with. I owed more than $57,000 and after contacting collections myself, they were trying to make me pay in excess of $1600.00 per month. Larson negotiated a payment of $248.00 monthly after reviewing my financials and getting in touch with collections. All of this within a time frame of 2 months. I would highly recommend them to anyone having tax problems.

She has faithfully represented my interests with the IRS, negotiating a huge reduction in my tax liabilities and setting me up in a manageable repayment program. Ms. ** and her team have also been very responsive to my requests and questions, giving me timely answers that not only cleared things up for me but also reduced my anxiety with regards to the IRS.

Larson Tax Relief questions and answers

What problem is Larson Tax Relief trying to solve?
Businesses and Individuals who owe back taxes to IRS and state taxing authorities are facing the daunting task of getting a solution that actually works for them. We work diligently to alleviate the financial and emotional pressures that come with these debts while providing the expertise and personal guidance needed to arrive at a resolution that fits their unique situation.
What sets your company apart from the competition?
Our competitors commonly boast that years of experience in dealing with the IRS is their prized attribute, making them experts at negotiating with the government. While Larson Tax Relief’s senior employees have 100+ years of combined experience in dealing with the IRS and state, we focus on other factors that play an equally important role in delivering a great result for our clients. First, is a focus on customer service centered around interacting with and educating our clients. Second is ensuring our employees are equipped mentally and emotionally to execute the tasks needed to provide a favorable result for our customers. By design, our corporate culture fosters happy, informed employees. Happy and well-informed employees deliver a better work product, period. Third, we place a heavy emphasis on growing and maintaining high moral and ethical standards in customer interaction and employee conduct, including advertising. Fourth, is licensing. Every client that hires our firm has a licensed Attorney or IRS Enrolled Agent working on their file, and communicating directly with them. We also provide federally licensed tax consultants for our prospective customers to speak with about their tax situation prior to hiring our firm. We are aware of only 1 other competing firm that upholds these standards.
What needs do your products or services fulfill, and how do you fulfill those needs better than your competition?
Our services provide much-needed guidance and comfort to our customers, while our expertise in this area of practice provides the ability to navigate complex state and federal tax laws, policies and procedures. We are able to execute better resolutions than our competitors due to a very high level of involvement with our clients. Sizeable tax debts don’t show up overnight, and they can’t usually be fixed overnight either. When Larson employees focus on communication and collaboration with our clients, we are empowered to provide a result that is truly tailored to the customers’ needs and unique variables. Most of our competitors sell a “cookie-cutter” product, follow the same steps for every customer, and refer to their customers by their client ID number. We don’t number our clients, as Larson Tax Relief isn’t in the cattle business. Our clients have names, and we follow varying steps and procedures for each one in a commitment to achieve the unique resolution they need.
What are the most common misconception consumers have about Larson Tax Relief?
The primary misconception consumers have about our firm is that the client themselves, or their local CPA will get the same result that we would. Customers commonly believe that we can’t do anything that they can’t, even in the face of over 30,000 pages of tax law and policy in the Internal Revenue Manual and Internal Revenue Code. IRS and State revenue officers are trained to be much nicer than they were in the past. By design, this gives the would-be customer the illusion that they are working with somebody who has their best interest at hand or is “on their side.” Often, the government employee provided to the taxpayer occupies a role that does not give them the authority to honor appeals or terms needed by the taxpayer. Taking guidance from a revenue agent, who has a job to collect the money as fast as they can, is often a treacherous path resulting in levied bank accounts and seized assets.
What are your company values?
The Larson Tax Relief Mission Statement is that the company exists to provide its clients with the finest quality work and customer service in the tax resolution industry, delivered by a knowledgeable, compassionate, honest team of professionals.
What is something you wish every consumer knew about your company?
We wish that potential customer of ours knew that every single client is extremely important to both our organization and our employees. Our full effort and expertise are exerted on every case-file. The person or company that owes $10,000 to the IRS receives the same treatment, effort and expert help as the client who owes $2 million in back taxes. We have every licensed tax professional work on both large and small dollar-amount cases, as a favorable result is equally important to clients in both situations!
Has Larson Tax Relief received any awards or recognition your customers would like to know about?
The company won the 2014 BBB Torch Award for Customer Service and was runner-up for the 2014 and 2015 BBB Torch Award for Marketplace Trust & Ethics. The company has also been mentioned in The Denver Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, The Denver Post Top 100 Workplaces, the Colorado Biz Magazine’s Top 50 Family Owned Companies and the Colorado Biz Magazine’s Top 250 Privately Owned Companies for multiple years.
What are the most common misconception consumers have about your industry?
The most common misconceptions consumers have about our industry are that the IRS will negotiate or “bargain” with a taxpayer, similar to what you might see at a flea market or garage sale, that all tax negotiation firms are created equal and that it is common for the IRS to settle for ‘pennies on the dollar’ on back tax debt.
What is the greatest obstacle Larson Tax Relief is currently trying to overcome?
Market saturation and sub-par work product from our competitors is the primary obstacle our company faces every day. Being lumped into a group with all of the other competitors in the “tax resolution industry” is not necessarily a good thing for our firm. Many consumers believe that tax resolution companies are just a scam, and they are partially correct. Our company, at last count, has 270 “competitors” nationwide that claim to do what we do. We estimate that fewer than 10 of these firms have the ethical standards, business model and expertise to deliver results that are equal to Larson Tax Relief. This number does not include individual CPAs and Attorneys who are often hired to fix back tax problems, regardless of the fact that most of them have very limited experience negotiating with government taxing authorities. We gain first-hand knowledge of the terrible work product provided by most competitors when we are hired to sort through and clean up the mess they had created for their client prior to hiring Larson Tax Relief. Often we find that they client was indeed ‘scammed.’
How has your industry changed in the last 5 to 10 years?
In the past 5-10 years we have seen the arrival of hundreds of new “competitors” that are increasingly less qualified, yet make even bigger promises of massive reductions in tax debt. Wild claims about “new government programs” and false promises pound TV and radio airwaves and other media outlets every day. Each month we hear of a dozen new companies that are starting up in our industry, and another dozen who are going out of business. Below, in our advice section, you will find that we advise that consumers looking for help research how long a company has been in business. This is why.
How do you think the industry will change in the next 5 to 10 years?
We hope that the federal government will pass legislation and regulations that will mandate and require licensing in order to provide tax advice, opinions or claims pertaining to the results of any back tax resolution. Should licensing be required, it would save thousands of consumers the financial and emotional heartache while falling victim to false claims and poor work product. A sub-par performance by a tax company often places the consumer in more trouble than they were in prior to hiring. Without any new federal regulations being passed, we fear that the industry will continue to be saturated by predatory companies headed up by under-qualified, unethical people making unsubstantiated claims while delivering little to no results to their customers. The government could actually help the consumer by passing some more stringent regulations that limit exactly who is allowed to give tax advice, and what they are allowed to say. Our licensed professionals are currently regulated in this manner, however, those at other firms who are not licensed can say just about anything without facing any consequences. For the consumers’ sake, we hope this changes.
How has Larson Tax Relief grown or evolved?
Because of our reputation and great case results, our company has grown from three employees to over 85 in our 13 years in business. Larson Tax Relief focuses on keeping company growth in proportion with our number of clients, leaving no customer under-served. Beyond employee and client numbers increasing over the years, our firm has evolved in every area possible, from internal customer service requirements to our thriving corporate culture. The healthy growth of our progressive work environment and culture has been facilitated greatly by ownership providing positive psychology training as well as a third party executive coach who is available to all staff members. We have found that positive, effective and clear communication with clients and between employees is the key to achieving the stellar results and customer experience we pride ourselves on delivering.
Do you have any advice or comments for your current and/or potential customers?
We advise that any client seeking help with a back tax issue looks for the best help out there. Better help doesn’t mean that it is more expensive. Quite often, the least qualified firms quote the highest fees. It is advisable that any consumer looking for help should do at least 15 minutes of research on any firm they are considering. This sounds like a small amount of time, but a lot can be found out in a short amount of time. The difference between “adequate” and “great” help will have a substantial affect on your end result, and will likely affect the next 2-10 a customer’s personal life, even if the tax issue stems from a business. We encourage all consumers looking for help to perform some research that will provide information about a tax company’s number of years in business, licensed employees (will you ever talk to one?), customer reviews, and client references. If a company can provide very few positive reviews or references, and has been in business only a few years, we advise you move on and keep looking! There is great tax help out there, and it isn’t hard to find if you know what you are looking for.
