Still paying off fees for 2012 from Instant Tax Solutions

Instant tax solutions charged us over 3500.00 in fees that we HAD to pay up front and we are STILL paying off that credit card PLUS the interest payment to the credit card company. They filed claims with the IRS but got us NO reduction in payment while we were waiting to hear from them. By the time WE contacted THEM, we had fallen much further behind, COMPOUNDED by the fact that they were of NO REDUCTION help to us. We actually then went to a private Financial accountant who not only got us a reduction in payment, but a moratorium on paying off the taxes. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING INSTANT TAX SOLUTIONS. We feel they not only didn't help us, but we would have waited until who knows when for them to even contact us. We definitely threw away 3500.00+ dollars.

We are in the middle of the same situation - months to get any updates or information and now being told there are no reduction or options available to us, even though we were told when we first contacted them that we did (based on info given to them at the time - but nothing has changed...)

Out the $4000+ I have paid them in monthly payments, and facing a lien on our property and hit with a garnishment of my paycheck with the IRS....

No end in sight... :*(

#1223032

I think we have just done the same *** thing. $3800 up front, no reduction in the amount owed.

They came up with a higher payment plan that we did before we contacted ITS.

also dealing with State. This is a nightmare.

Instant tax took money out of my account without my knowledge

Instant tax took money out of my checking account months after I was no longer a client and had no relationship with them. They took 1500 dollars out and another 1500 the following week. When i got my statement I was outraged. They had absolutely no grounds for touching my account and I had not been a client of theirs for months. I really think they thought they could get away with it and if they weren't so greedy they might have. This company is a snake pit of thieves do not give them any bank or credit card information. If they have your info make sure you keep checking your account, they will steal from you.

Beware - they are being investigated for criminal activity

I was doing some due diligence to determine if I should hire this firm to assist me with my IRS issue, I learned some very shocking news from a reliable third party. It seems that the Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating them for submitting approximately three hundred Power of Attorney forms to the IRS where the client's signatures were forged. This is a very serious infraction and is disturbing to say the least. Any firm that will forge a government form with a client's name is not one I would ever want to do business with.

Instant Tax Solutions had a client consult last week read this posting. In concern he called a friend with the FBI to look into this matter.

To his surprise the FBI said the posting had no weight to the allocations and probably was a fraudulent internet attach. ITS is perusing Internet Libel on this matter.

#660055

Instant Tax Solutions is in no way, shape or form facing any investigation for criminal charges nor have they ever in the past. The principles of our business are based on solid moral standards and ethical values.

People must sincerely seek to be sure accusations are true, as sometimes people spread stories to hurt people's reputations. Hebrews 13:18 "Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things."

#652527

Probably because they did not want to take the time to get the actual signature from their client(s). Just a time saving mechanism like the banks and the falsified foreclosure documents. Not right and certainly not legal, but it is what it is.

Innocent text solution scam

First off let it be known I did "not" contract with this company nor did I send them any money. The experience I had just getting through the consultation phase was enough to send me running and flag this company as a "high probability" of a scam. A lot of RED FLAGS developed and I will allow you to make your decisions based on the Red Flags with my experience. If I can help one person avoid being scammed its worth my time. There are a lot of warnings out there about companies that claim to be tax resolution companies but end up ripping people off. This company has some complaints listed on the Internet that they take the money and never do anything they say. Other complaints are that it’s hard to contact anyone at this company once they have your money and when you do you are treated rudely. That is what occurred to me. During the consultation with **** ****** he kept bringing up warnings I should look for with other companies, telling me I had to be very careful and check it out. To me this raised warning flags along with the hair on the back of my neck. I repeatedly asked **** to STOP using this technique and ONLY speak to me about what his company can do for my situation. **** would constantly revert to this same method (throwing a smoke screen) and I would have to ask him to stop. When someone is always telling me to be careful of their competitors I have to wonder what they are hiding themselves. Although a bit skeptical I decided to use this company and get started on the paperwork to hire them. **** sent me the forms required to contract and other forms to allow them to contact the IRS HOWEVER in the middle of all this was a form for me to fill out my credit card information and to sign it giving them authorization to withdraw funds on my credit card. WOW!!!!!!!!! This was never discussed with me and who in their right mind is going to give credit card information and authorization to a stranger to use????? I told **** there would be no way I was giving my credit card information and I would send checks for the three payments as we agreed. I let him know that if he expected to do business with me he needed to develop the trust and accept my checks as payment. He started to make excuses of well it takes time for checks to clear etc etc etc. In the majority of cases checks clear in one or two days anymore, so this sounded *** to me. I emails **** telling him I would consider doing business with his company but they would not get my banking information that I would send checks for the payment plan we agreed upon. I also asked for his response on two scathing reviews discovered on the internet and that I was waiting on a response back from the Secretary of State on the legitimacy and or complaints about Instant Tax Solutions. At this point they declined to work with me. As you can see from experience there are a lot of Red Flags and although they loved telling me to check out the legitimacy of other companies that offered the same services they do, they ran when I checked out their company. I'm providing this complaint so that anyone considering the use of Instant Tax Solutions to proceed with caution and when too many Red Flags popup be very very careful. Please DON’T GIVE YOUR BANK INFORMATION TO ANYONE----- along with ***AUTHORIZATION**** for them to make withdraws from it like this company requested

"Owner" reply? Really?

Is that how legitimate "owners" respond?

Look at all the misspellings and grammar mistakes!! I would definitely steer clear of these people!

#705137

We have an E-Mail from this guy wanting to hire are firm. Because he didn't have a credit card to proses we told him we would file his Power of Attorney and wait to move on his case till the funds cleared. The funny thing is were pretty sure its a fraud consultation.

Internet Libel is being pursued by ITS

This issue was resolved long before client was garnished. Client repeatedly avoided paying estimated tax deposits for 2 years wile under ITS on power of attorney.

We filled several extensions all tax returned and released 2 Levies. To no avail the client never paid his estimated deposits to the IRS. @ years of ITS good name on buying him time to pull the wool over us. Than have the nerve to file a BBB complaint.

I will be posting and perusing Internet Libel on this posting. This is Fraudulent

I saw this person's complaint on the BBB website. According to their website, this issue was resolved.

Instant Tax Solutions Ripped Me Off

I hired Instant Tax Solutions because they had a good rating from the Better Business Bureau and I had bad problems with the IRS. They promised that my problems could be solved and I needed to pay them $4,950.00 upfront for them to help me. After I paid them I didn't hear from them for a long time and then the IRS took my car and started taking money from my paychecks. When I told the IRS I hired people they said to me that nobody had looked into my case. I called Instant Tax Solutions and they told me that they were fixing everything-but it was a lie. I never got only help and when I asked for my money back I was told it was the "cost of the investigation". I feel so bad about losing all that money on top of my IRS problems. I hope nobody else gets scammed the way I did.

If all of these negatives are true, why is it that the BBB has only had four complaints and they have been resolved?

#567097

I had a consultation with this company today. They absolutely do NOT require a full payment up front.

If I decide to hire them, my full fee of $3,000 will be split up into $800 increments. I was also assured that if they found that they were unable to help my situation within the first 30 days, they have a money back guarantee for the first $800 payment.

I came onto this site looking to see if there were any reason not to hire them... haven't found one yet!

@PissedConsumer567097

How amusing is that!! I had to pay them $7500.00 in $1500.00 increments.

Once they had all my money, they said that I had exceeded the time permitted to file and there was nothing they could do about it!!!

Problems still there, plus $7500.00 more in debt!!!! They are *** of the earth!!!!!!!

Mike H. is being very untruthful.

Instant Tax Solutions is one of the best companies out there and made contact with me continuously. They even got my wage garnishment lifted.

Anyone who hires companies like this to solve their IRS problems is foolish. You need to contact and deal with IRS personally---don't ignore them.

When you do, they take your bank accounts, etc.

You were scammed. Learn from it.

#460854

You should report this to your state attorney general, and the Better Business Bureau.

Instant Tax Solutions true cold blooded criminals

Update by user Mar 28, 2011

Instant Tax Solutions is a SCAM!

another scamming company run by convicted felons

Original review posted by user Mar 28, 2011
I contacted Instant Tax Solutions to assist me with my overdue taxes. I spoke to a Byron, who claimed he was part owner of the company. We went through a bunch of questions about my financial ability to pay the IRS. The private nature of our discussion made me uneasy, but I knew if someone was going to help me, they needed to know this information. But then things got too uncomfortable when Byron described how he has been sober for a few months now and that his addiction days are long gone. Probably not something you wanna share with a potential client... So I decided to do some more research on this guy and his so called company. Here is what I found...you might wanna prepare yourself for this... First red flag: The Idaho BBB shows Instant Tax Solutions conducting business since 2004 but the Idaho Secretary of State shows the LLC was created in 2008/2009. Apparently, the longer you've been in business the higher your grade with the BBB... Second red flag: The owners. Ian Woodman and Byron Pederson. Just google "Ian Woodman in Idaho". Scary stuff. Now check this out: http://www.healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=5uZ9YUILMrE%3D&tabid=130&mid=1187 Third red flag...Like I already mentioned: Byron and his "addiction days". But I decided to give Byron a chance to explain himself...so I called him back. He immediately got all defensive and a bit rage-like on the phone. I didn't appreciate being spoken to that way, so needless to say I hung up. Look, I'm from a big, busy city and after all this it's no surprise that Instant Tax Solutions is just another scamming company run by convicted felons. If you have IRS issues like I do...do your research! You already have enough problems...

If you want to find out about Instant Tax Solutions, look at their BBB Reviews. This is a very honest company & works really hard to help their clients get the best resolution possible.

#269832

I hired Instant Tax Solution per tax problem I had. After a month and half dealing with them, I was contacted by the IRS asking me if I had change the power of attorney that I did with ITS.

I inform them I did not. The IRS inform me that ITS had forge numerical power of attorney. I then became very scared and began to do my research and low and behold “what do I fine out”. That the person who is the Enroll Agent name Byron Pederson is a recovering addict.

The owner Ian Woodman is a convicted felon for the Ohio Department of Welfare in regards to defrauding a daycare program. “Nice Man”. I’m so amaze how these individual are able to run a company, making it look like they have a whole bunch of qualify people working for them. Once again “byers” must be aware.

The IRS has warn me they will take action against them. So, I ask for my file to be return back to me immediately and not to do anything else.

Watch out for Instant Tax Solutions

Around the first week of May 2010, I contacted Instant Tax Solutions to assist me with my overdue taxes. I spoke to a Byron, who claimed he was part owner of the company. We went through a bunch of questions about my financial ability to pay the IRS. The private nature of our discussion made me uneasy, but I knew if someone was going to help me, they needed to know this information.

Thinking of hiring this company, so I checked into these claims. I googled "Ian Woodman in Idaho" and the search turned up nothing unseemly.

Quite the contrary, actually. Google had nothing but positive links associated with this man.

The link in the above complaint does not lead to any page. Thank you for helping me make my decision to hire them!

Instant Tax Solutions is not a problem for me. And they are worth to trust for.

#275534

So they didn't actually scam you or rip you off or take your money.

You just didn't like the way they talked to you.

(And you didn't like their sketchy backgrounds, of course.)
