  • Mindi L. | 01/23/2021

    I contacted Optima Tax relief on or about october 2020 and spoke to a representative named Nik who made me false promises and talked me into giving them over 90% of my SSI per month for 7 months to help me with an IRS problem. I then had MAJOR issues getting assistance or help and never heard from Nik again. I was later put in touch with Leah who said my case had been passed to someone else who supposedly “left me a message”. I asked to cancel my services because i did not get the assistance I was promised. I was told that I could cancel but I would only get back around $1200 but I paid them over $2000. I was told they could not help me unless I was available all the time by phone but Nik said emails were fine since i am disabled. I was LIED to and now I have been told I have until 1/28/2021 to make a decision to keep the services or accept the offer of $1200. Optima tax relief has done NOTHING to help me with my debt at all. They are NOT available for one-on-one help as promised and in fact very condescending and threatening to me. I feel as though I have been taken advantage of to the highest degree by vultures, using my disability against me as well as taking almost all of my income during covid-19 and refusing to reimburse me all of my funds. If you go to the website for Business Consumer Alliance and look up the complaints, they are all VERY similar to mine and Optima Tax relief refunded all those people their money in full but not me. I feel like they took advantage of my mental handicap and are trying to strong arm me into signing a contract for settlement or continuance. They said they received my complaint from the BCA but would NOT offer me a full refund as they did all the others. That is discrimination at the highest level and I will NOT give up my rights or my SSI payments to them when they can’t be bothered to keep promises.

    I was in a desperate situation and didn’t know what to do or where to turn. I heard on the radio about Optima Tax Relief. Sounded promising so I made the call! From the introductory phone call, everything fell into place. My confidence in my situation and Optima has skyrocketed to my current position. The IRS and I are both happy campers thanks to “OPTIMA TAX RELIEF”!!! THANKS!!

  • Steve Y. | 12/30/2020

    I heard a commercial on the radio about Optima Tax Relief. I was in tax debt and looking for help. I was very nervous about my situation. I made a call to them. After that call, my debt is now being handled with the IRS with the help of Optima Tax Relief.

  • Robert D. | 09/12/2020

    They helped take a lot of pressure off me to where I have time to get things in order. I would recommend them to anyone who is having serious tax problems. They are true to their word and once they get things set up they will contact you often to see if everything is OK
