Can Ideal Tax Solution Really Help with my IRS back taxes?

Can Ideal Tax Solution, aka ITS help with my IRS problem?  They can, will they?

This is a review of Ideal Tax Solution, Costa Mesa, CA who may mail you; or you may have seen on TV or the internet if the government files a federal tax lien against you, or your business, if you owe the IRS back taxes.  Ideal Tax Solutions does not meet irs back tax help hiring criteria.  If you have questions about this review, please reference:  bp98.

As usual, If you like the tone of this writing, I would like to refer you to someone who meets irs back tax help criteria.  Please contact irs back tax help.  Before you email me, please click on and read “About irs back tax help.”

 Ideal Tax Solution Marketing Approach for an IRS Tax Problem:

There are a lot of good tax resolution companies out there.  These two links will help you tell who’s who:

Apparently, their primary form of marketing mimics IRS documents and disguises their identity.  I think this is my least favorite form of marketing.  Why start out trying to deceive people? 

“There was no company information but only “IRS Federal Tax Lien Notification” and US govt information. When I called the number at the bottom to inquire about why I received this notice, the company was Ideal Tax Solution out of Costa Mesa CA.”

You should not hire IRS past due tax help unless you think there is a good reason.  The real first question, after a tax lien is filed, is not whom to hire, but “IF” you should hire anyone to help if you owe back taxes to the IRS.

Let’s inject some common sense into the tax problem if you are looking for IRS help.  Read the link above, it will help you decide “IF” you actually need to hire IRS back tax help.  Have an IRS emergency caused by an IRS bank levy or seizure?  Take the time to read both of these links.  They are focused on your best interests, not a tax resolution company’s.  

  • Ideal Tax Solution wants you to hire them if you owe back taxes to the IRS.  However, do not hire the first tax resolution company you call or calls you about your IRS tax problem.  Make them compete for you business with at least one other company who meets the hiring criteria for irs back tax help.
  • When an IRS tax lien (IRS Notice of Federal Tax Lien, IRS Form 668(y)) is filed with the county recorder, it becomes public record.  Then Ideal Tax Solutions may collect this information and contact businesses and individuals with IRS tax lien filings.

Instead, take control of this IRS tax problem on your terms.  Here’s how: (3 steps, 10 minutes)

  • STEP 1:  Before you have a discussion with Ideal Tax Solution, read Google & BBB reviews & complaints. 

  • STEP 2:  When you are ready, call Ideal Tax Solution if you are OK with their reviews & complaints and get the name of the person who will represent you and check them out. 

  • STEP 3:  Re-Contact Ideal Tax Solution if you are satisfied with Steps 1 & 2.  Then get a Second Opinion on How to handle your IRS Tax Debt.  (That’s a hint!)

  • All the steps for the Ideal Tax Solution Review are completed below.

It is valid to be concerned about the IRS’ actions, and to take action yourself, but a knee jerk reaction could cause greater IRS problems down the road.  When the IRS goes into enforced collection mode, it’s worth taking a measured approach to fix the tax problem.

STEP 1:  Before you have a discussion with Ideal Tax Solution Read Google & BBB Reviews & Complaints:

After doing a little homework on Google, Ideal Tax Solution’s address:

  • Ideal Tax Solution, 3525 Hyland Avenue Suite 220, Costa Mesa, CA 92626
  • Ideal Tax Solution’s phone numbers:  (714) 751-5200, (888) 288-8107, (866) 670-0171, (877) 316-6829

Ideal Tax Solution’s Better Business Bureau records look like this:

Ideal Tax Solution BBB Review

Ideal Tax Solution BBB Review

  • In business since 2010
  • Accredited 2010
  • 18 complaints as of 4/7/2012.  Up 4 complaints since 2/25/2012.  There should be no more than 3 in three years, let alone 4 in 42 days. 
  • 22 complaints as of 3/14/2015.   
  • When using the BBB to research a tax relief company, it is probably best to use the BBB as a “de-selector” rather than a reason to hire a tax resolution company.  The BBB solicits companies to become a member, so it is relatively easy to remain in good standing and keep an “A” letter grade.  The nature of the company is better seen by how many complaints they have accumulated over the last 3 years; which is the standard BBB reporting period.  A good rule of thumb is no more than one complaint per year, or three complaints total.  Size and age of a tax resolution company are irrelevant.  It really boils down to how they treated their clients during the reporting period.  So Ideal Tax Solutions should have less than three complaints total. 
  • There are plenty of tax resolution companies who meet this standard, so don’t settle for less.  If you’re having trouble finding a tax resolution company with 3 complaints or less, I’m happy to help.  I can be reached at

STEP 2:  If you are happy with Step 1:  Reviews & Complaints,  call Ideal Tax Solution

Knowledge is power, so the second opinion is important.  Overall, if you are thinking of hiring Ideal Tax Solutions, listen to them and then see what the second opinion says about your tax problems. Of course, we would like to offer that second opinion, but as long as you take the time to do a little homework as listed in the first link above, you’ll probably be fine.  Click “About irs back tax help” to learn about us or read irs back tax help testimonials to see how we treat people.
