Anthem Tax Services is a Ripoff and a Scam

This company makes promises it can't keep. Then you are told the truth about what they can't do and then they make promises about what they say they can do and then they don't keep those promises. David Cruz, a slick salesman, stops taking or returning calls once he has an agreement and starts receiving payments. The "Case Officers" don't respond to emails, don't take calls and don't return calls. The poor victim of this ripoff has laid out money better spent paying down their tax obligation than hiring this company.

User's recommendation: Don't waste your money.

Anthem Tax Services is dishonest and full of liars

ATS states on their home page on their website that if they cannot save you on owed back taxes they will refund their fee. This is a lie flat out. Do not use Anthem. They are dishonest and thieves. They didn't save me one cent and strung it out over 4 months so they could take more of my money. DO NOT USE ANTHEM more their

Incompetence and Dysfunction At It's Best

13 month horrible experience with Owner/Partners/Employees…All complicit with deceit, preying on hardworking people’s blight with the IRS and State Tax agencies. Argumentative/Combative/Manipulative/Rude and downright disrespectful! Please take your business elsewhere as they are only capable of delivering false promises and lies! Be especially careful of the Partners (All 3 of them working collectively to destroy your character as soon as you start questioning they’re competency in managing your case). I firmly believe they threaten the employees from being open and honest with you. You will be placed on speaker phone without your knowledge as they try to entrap you and make you feel that you are a problem, even when you simply try to inquire about an update on your case. What honest establishment would place you on speaker phone without transparency? No one should have their personal information shared with the entire company without notice! Owner went as far as to intimidate me into (Illegal Astrosurfing)…requiring that I place a positive company review on Survey Monkey for them to continue with my case, or else, my case would be closed and they would revoke Power of Attorney. Meanwhile, they had done everything to screw up my case for 7 months!!!...Beware!!!...My case has never been completed. You can best believe if confronted, they will collaboratively lie!!!
