Licensing, Bonding or Registration

On March 26, 2015, BBB requested the business to clarify the nature of its business, provide updated licensing information, and address a pattern of complaints. This information was not provided. As a result the BBB may not have current information regarding United Property Tax Consultants.

Some the questions asked by BBB were regarding
- Updated contact information for the business
- Is the company still in business or relocated.
- Documentation of consumers' appeals
- Terms, conditions, or limitation during the appeal process

Also, BBB noted a pattern of complaints concerning:
- Allegations that consumers paid the owner of the company to appeal their property tax and did not see any results
