US Tax Shield is a tax debt relief service with three types of tax professionals that are legally authorized to negotiate before the IRS on your behalf. It can help you navigate IRS-based programs that can help make your debt more manageable. These programs include an offer in compromise, innocent spouse relief, currently not collectible and installment agreements. These programs can help you settle for a lesser amount you owe the government, relieve you if you were innocent while your spouse made any tax mistakes, to prove that you cannot pay the debt because of economic hardships, and to break your total debt into manageable payments over time, respectively. Keep in mind that you might not qualify for all of these programs, however.
This company's tax relief program can also work to lift any levies the government has placed on your property or your assets, including wage garnishment and bank accounts being seized. This company can also lift liens that have been placed on your credit. US Tax Shield can help you with both federal and state tax problems.
We reached out to US Tax Shield on multiple occasions and asked questions about a variety of IRS tax notices and debt scenarios to test its tax relief services. We used our interactions with this company's agents to calculate a competency score based on the representatives' thoroughness, knowledge, ability to answer our questions and whether they advised us how to fix the problem or just tried to sell us their service. US Tax Shield earned a high competency score from us with especially knowledgeable agents that were able to answer our questions without requiring personal information. However, our testers reported that the agents, while knowledgeable, didn't spend as much time as those from other services making sure they thoroughly understood the tax issues we presented.
We also evaluated US Tax Shield's customer service in our interactions with its representatives and calculated a customer support score. US Tax Shield was quick to follow up with us, and its representatives were especially communicative and consistent with their information across the board – both of which are important in our customer support score. Still, if you have questions for this company, we recommend reaching out via telephone rather than email as our own emails to the company went unanswered.
