Additional Notes

Complaint: I paid $1750 to tax busterz for services and there was nothing accomplished, they just gave me the run around. I received no correspondence unless I contacted them and when I did there was another person supposedly working on my behalf. I started with **** then two more individuals later still no resolution.

Desired Settlement: Just desire the $1750 for services that were not rendered.

Business Response:

To whom it may concern,

In response to the client's complaint, our company made the offer to the IRS as requested by the client and according to the process set forth by the process. 

Client hired us to prepare an offer in compromise package to the IRS for consideration for a reduced settlement. We prepared the necessary offer and submitted to the IRS.  

The IRS determined based on the client's financial status and future earnings that the client could afford to pay them the debt in full.

That decision is strictly up to the IRS. Our charges are strictly for the service of preparing the offer and submitting it on behalf of the client.

As a courtersy we even offered to re-submitt the offer after 90 days of which the client agreed to. The client never brought forth any complaints to us.  Why now?

Please see attached transcripts of all communication with the client.

Thank you,
