The Good

Has Resolved More Than $400 Million in Tax Debt for Customers

Community Tax, sometimes known as CTAX, has resolved more than $400,000 million in tax debt for businesses and consumers since it was founded in Chicago in 2010. The company has worked with more than 50,000 clients nationwide.

CTAX settles an average of just under $1 million in tax debt each month, negotiates with the IRS to release dozens of liens and levies, and resolves close to 1,000 tax cases in a month. The numbers are on your side when it comes to receiving a fair and manageable tax settlement when you work with CTAX.

Free Consultation and Fair Pricing

Like many tax debt relief firms, CTAX offers a free consultation. The CTAX experts will determine your filing status and your unique situation with IRS or state tax debt. If you owe more than $7,000 in taxes, they can develop a plan to negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.

Founded by Bankers, Attorneys, and Tax Professionals Who Understand Tax Relief

Unlike many tax debt relief firms who keep their company ownership and employee credentials hidden behind a veil of secrecy, CTAX is upfront about the experience level, certifications, degrees, and names of their founders and employees.

Three of the four founders are certified to practice law, while the other is an IRS enrolled agent, the highest tax credential offered by the U.S. Department of Treasury. All four have extensive experience in banking, finance, and tax defense, giving them the expertise needed to run one of the nation’s leading tax defense agencies and to ensure the highest level of customer service from their firm.

Get the Help You Need from Attorneys, CPAs, and IRS Enrolled Agents

Community Tax employs a large team of attorneys, CPAs, IRS enrolled agents and trained tax preparers with a client-centered and solutions-oriented approach to tax resolution and other financial services, including tax preparation, bookkeeping, and accounting services.

Reduce Tax Debt with Proven Programs

Community Tax experts are experienced in acting on behalf of taxpayers to file offers-in-compromise, partial pay installment agreements, innocent spouse relief, currently-not-collectible status, and other programs designed to reduce or eliminate tax debt.

They can negotiate with the IRS to eliminate or reduce fees or penalties, reduce the overall amount you owe, and arrange a manageable installment agreement that allows you to keep more of your money while paying down your tax debt over time. With an incredibly high success rate, CTAX has saved taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars each year.

Have Levies and Liens Released So You Can Keep What You Earn

Facing tax liens on your property or even levies, which can allow the IRS to seize your assets, is scary and stressful. CTAX has unprecedented success in filing to have levies and liens removed so you can keep your cash, property, and other assets. Once the levies and liens are taken care of, CTAX will then start the process of negotiating with the IRS on your behalf to reach a satisfactory resolution to your tax debt.

Stop Wage Garnishment

 Did you know that the IRS can garnish your wages if you owe back taxes? Avoid this stressful situation by calling on the professionals at Community Tax to stop wage garnishment and help you reach an agreement with the IRS that lets you hold onto the money you need to live.

Leading National Provider of Tax and Accounting Services

Since its launch in 2010, CTAX has grown to become one of the nation’s leading tax resolution agencies, with positive reviews, media coverage, industry affiliations, and multiple certifications and accreditations. Transparent in its approach and forthcoming with information, tips, and advice, CTAX places customer satisfaction at the top of its priorities.

Get Accounting, Bookkeeping and Tax Help, Too

CTAX provides not only tax debt relief services, but also tax accounting for businesses and individuals, as well as small business bookkeeping and accounting services.

Taking the place of pricey in-house bookkeepers, the CTAX team can customize monthly, quarterly, and annual reports, provide monthly reconciliation and maintenance of your books, and complete business tax filings, so you can focus on serving your customers and growing your business.

CTAX can also help individuals file state and IRS tax returns annually. Headed by a team of experts who understand the financial challenges businesses and individuals face, CTAX strives to be a one-stop shop for taxes, bookkeeping and financial consulting for businesses and individuals.

Prevent Tax Problems with a Monitoring Service

If you’ve been in trouble with the IRS, you know how stressful it is. You would probably do anything to avoid the situation in the future. The CTAX Assurance Program provides personalized services to help you stay ahead of tax deadlines and problems with the IRS.

CTAX Assurance is available at three service levels. The first is a free service to customers, which provides tax account monitoring, access to IRS transcripts, IRS account alerts, free access to the TaxPal mobile app with 24-hour tax monitoring, and more.

The Executive and Enterprise Programs offer many additional services for business owners, including automatic business tax extensions, direct access to CPAs, and full-service small business bookkeeping.

Reduce Your Tax Liability with Tax Prep Help from CTAX

Community Tax experts file tax returns for their customers with the utmost care. Before beginning the process, the company’s tax professionals file for a limited power of attorney on behalf of the client. CTAX may order transcripts or account records from the IRS to ensure that no income or expenses are accidentally left off the returns by the taxpayer.

If you are filing a complicated tax return, with income from stock sales, property rentals, the sale or transfer of assets, interest, dividends, unemployment, gambling or lottery income, or other 1099 miscellaneous income, Community Tax will work with you to determine what tax deductions could legally help you reduce your overall tax bill. You may be surprised by how much you can save by having your taxes prepared by a tax professional and reviewed by an IRS enrolled agent.

Tax Returns Prepared by CTAX Come with an “Audit Guarantee”

When CTAX prepares your taxes, whether they are delinquent or on time, all filings come with an “audit guarantee.” CTAX attorneys will represent you during the IRS audit if your returns prepared by CTAX are audited.

Bi-lingual Services

CTAX translates its website into Spanish with one click of a button and has bilingual tax professionals available to help American taxpayers who speak Spanish.

The Bottom Line

Although it’s been in business for less than a decade, Community Tax quickly rose to the top of highly respected tax debt relief firms in the U.S. thanks to its experienced and conscientious leadership. Numerous positive consumer reviews and industry accreditations stand as a testament to the company’s reliability and results.

CTAX offers a wide range of financial services, all provided by experts in their field, including licensed tax attorneys, CPAs, and IRS Enrolled Agents. If you need assistance with small business bookkeeping and accounting or are an individual with tax problems seeking a solution, contact CTAX for a free consultation. With professional tax prep and financial consulting help, CTAX can also help you avoid future problems with the IRS.

Ratings

Customer Satisfaction

rating

CTAX doesn’t just boast about its emphasis on customer service. Rated 4.5 stars on Best Company with an 8.3 / 10 overall rating across 190 consumer reviews, 4.5 stars on TrustPilot, TrustLink, and the Consumer Affairs website, and 4.75 stars on the Better Business Bureau website, CTAX proves its dedication to customer satisfaction.
Hundreds of positive reviews point out CTAX’s transparency, kindness, and commitment to results. A few negative reviews centered on the fact that it took a long time to achieve tax resolution, which can often happen in IRS negotiations.

Variety Of Services

rating

We'd give Community Tax a 6 out 5 for its variety of services – or even a perfect 10 – if we could. Very few tax debt relief firms offer the depth and breadth of tax debt solutions CTAX does, along with so many other financial services. From small business bookkeeping accounting to individual tax preparation, CTAX provides so much more than just tax resolution services. Once you are a CTAX customer, you can stay with the company for life, and know that you will get the help you need to file your taxes on time and stay out of trouble with the IRS.

rating

This is yet another category where CTAX shines. With appearances on Fox News, CSNBC, The History Channel, and CNN, Community Tax is known worldwide as a leading tax resolution firm. The company also has a vast social media following, with a presence on nearly all the major platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, and even Tumbler and reddit. Even more impressive, all the channels are active and engaging, with CTAX's Facebook amassing an extensive network of 15,000 followers.
The company also has an active blog where it provides tax advice, offers tips, and answers commonly asked tax questions. CTAX strives to be a resource to taxpayers on the Web and has worked to build an engaged online community.

Although CTAX has only been since 2010, its founders have collective decades of experience in financial management, tax debt relief, banking, accounting, real estate, and law.

Licensing and Accreditations

rating

In addition to the individual degrees, licensures, and certifications held by members of the CTAX team, Community Tax is a member of the National Association of Tax Resolution Companies and a Non-CPA member of the AICPA.
CTAX is also an IRS Approved Continuing Education Provider, which means members of its staff have been deemed knowledgeable enough to train other IRS enrolled agents and tax accountants.
Community Tax is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating, and also by Consumer Affairs.
Community Tax is also committed to being involved in local and state organizations as a member of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and Illinois CPA Society.

Expert Review

rating

We’d recommend CTAX without hesitation to anyone in need of tax advice or help with tax debt relief. It is not often a company garners 5/5 ratings across-the-board. It is hard to find a negative word about CTAX or a drawback to using the company for all your business and personal tax needs.
The positive customer reviews, multiple accreditations and certifications, and the company’s vast online presence all show CTAX can be trusted to help you with your tax debt and straighten out your finances, no matter how bad your situation might be.
