I’d like to say, I got 3 times the amount I was going to get in HR Block. They do take some time to answer emails but they take care of business. I’m so grateful for their help. God bless.
Original Review: Aug. 8, 2023
It’s true they don’t answer emails! I’ve reached out since last Friday and including today and no one responds. I’ve decided to do a chargeback since the service isn’t being provided. I wasn’t even given a time range for when my taxes would be done after I submitted everything. I worried after so many negative reviews. I had provided all my info which is worst. They seem polite when they respond to these complaints but their business practices lack ethic. If you don’t respond to your customers close the shop. It’s been over a week and no response so my money was charged before they delivered the service which I think it’s illegal and no service provided yet.
We're happy to have been able to turn this client's experience around. It's been wonderful working with them to achieve a positive outcome for their tax matters!

Bad experience. Lawyer didn’t listen or care. Got me an unaffordable settlement. I don’t recommend. Kenneth ** didn’t try hard for me. I’m not sure who he was working for. I would stay away from them.
We are disappointed knowing that you don't feel your resolution was in your best interest. While we understand that our clients hope for specific outcomes, sadly, the options available to them are determined by a variety of factors which include (but are not limited to); IRS policies and their individual financial circumstances. Our team is aware of your concerns and will contact you soon to discuss this matter further.

I called this company because I have unfiled tax returns and I knew they would have to be filed and would cause a huge debt. They charged over 3500.00 to do nothing. 1. I FILED MY TAXES. 2. I HAD TO CALL IRS. SPENT 4 HOURS TO GET A PAYMENT THAT I COULD EVEN HALFWAY AFFORD. They assigned a guy by the name Kevin b to my case at first. Per IRS records he called once. Got me on a tiered payment plan. However when he called all my tax debt had not posted so when it did (which he was aware of this) and should of known when the other posted that the payment plan he put me in would (DEFAULT) which it did. So I called back. They opened my case back up and the manager Matthew got my case worked. However after delay delay delay for him to keep telling me he will get with his LICENSED TAX PROFESSIONAL. He said the best they could do is get IRS to give me a HIGHER PAYMENT PLAN THAT WHAT I WAS ON.
He said it is their policy. So he could not explain to me why I would pay them to get me a higher payment than I was on. Keep in mind they got ZERO of my IRS tax debt forgiven. Also keep in mind IRS can tell you how many times they call on your behalf. My call record with them was a total of 2 times. This company can do nothing for you. Do not waste your money. The money you pay them put it toward your IRS debt. Because you will end up having to pay all of it anyway. I will be disputing all payments they have taken from me and going forward. One last thing. They will come back here and respond. They contacted me X amounts of times but trust me those calls were worthless and told me nothing the IRS had not already told me. They call and email to log communication. THAT IS IT.
Hello, Tracie. We understand that there has been some confusion about your services, and we hope that your recent communications with our management team have assisted in addressing your concerns. The adjustments to your tiered payment plan were necessary based on your current tax situation, and so were the prepared 2021 tax returns. While you reviewed, signed and filed the returns, they were completed by our team per your contractual agreement. The returns were also necessary for your updated tiered resolution plan, as these returns were unfiled at the time and placed you in non-compliance preventing a new resolution from being established. Sadly, the increase in your tiered payment plan is unavoidable, as your combined federal tax balances will increase due to your recent filings. We understand that this is quite a bit of information to digest, but hoping additional communications with our team can help alleviate any further concerns our client may have.

Dealing with the IRS is more difficult and frustrating than I imagined. Jane ** explained how they think and what they will do. She told what I needed to hear whether I liked it or not. She helped me put my house in order. Thanks for everything.

This company is terrible, they don't reply to emails or return phone calls, all they want is your money. After 2 years all they did seems like they just copied and pasted my options from the CA Ftb website something I could have done myself, they did absolutely nothing for me but take my money. Save your money and hire a different company.

We paid TDN $6000 to file back taxes and set up a payment plan. We received an email August 2021 stating the last return from 2019 had been filed and our payment would be X amount per month. We just received a bill for $29000 due March 7, 2022 because TDN didn't do the job We paid them to do. Save your money.

What a poor excuse for a company claiming to be your guide with the IRS. For starters I don’t believe anyone there uses their real names. They only call you when your bill is due. They avoid answering any real questions. "We have your back and we will do our “Best” to resolve your issue with the IRS." I actually believe based on wasting more than 18 months and almost $10,000 that they work with the IRS to get you to pay as much as possible. They are a IRS commissioned company. Based on the deal they “worked out” and got me to sign before they got what I needed to pay the IRS was proof enough for me. When I asked if the issue with lifting a lien on my property was handled they said, "If you pay us another $10,000 maybe we can help you with that." What a waste of time!!
