Our Company

Tax Defense & Relief Group is a tax debt resolution company. In IRS and state income tax debt collection matters, we serve individual taxpayers, Corporations, LLCs, Partnerships, and small businesses before the Collection and Examination Divisions of the IRS and state income tax authorities. We have enrolled agents for all federal, state and U.S. territorial tax jurisdictions. We are one of the nation’s leading tax debt negotiation and mediation companies.

Our licensed professionals, CPA’s and IRS Enrolled Agents settle more cases in a month than most other CPA’s do in their entire working career. We are a specialty professional practice, focusing on the very narrow area of taxpayer defense before the Collection and Examination Divisions of the IRS and the agencies of similar function in the individual states. By focusing the best expertise on this narrow focal point, we bring to taxpayers the best obtainable outcomes in income tax collection actions.

We are focused on the customer’s experience with our firm. Our objective is to provide customer service and results that earn your respect and referral to any of your friends, family and associates that may also be experiencing tax problems of the type we resolve.

We employ a minimum of 16 “touch-points” with our clients during the conduct of our tax problem resolution process. These “touch points” are not simply voicemail’s or email’s that we hope you hear or read; we are actively representing you and at various points throughout our engagement resolving your tax problem we will be advising you of the status and progress of our work for you, and asking for specific information that will accelerate problem resolution. When we negotiate settlement arrangements on your behalf, we will then be seeking your consent to enter into a final agreement with the tax authorities.

We operate from one central location (Encino, California) with all professionals in full-time staff positions to provide the highest standards of tax defense and client service systems to maintain close, unified, control and supervision of each client representation before the IRS and all states. We create, constantly monitor, and enforce strict professional performance standards, in a careful and consistent manner that precludes us from using “contractors,” or farming out work to CPA’s distributed around the country, as do a number of our competitors.
