Firm Overview

Community Tax is a full service tax company dedicated to assisting tax payers with all of their tax related needs. Conceived in a local Chicago office as a tax resolution company, Community Tax has evolved into a nation-leading provider for all tax services, including bookkeeping, accounting, and tax preparation. The Community Tax team is staffed with a variety of Attorneys, CPAs, and Enrolled Agents whose combined knowledge and experience can solve each client's unique needs. Community Tax will file an IRS Power of Attorney on behalf of their clients, which enables them to: communicate directly with the IRS; gather detailed financial records and information; negotiate and advocate on behalf of the taxpayer; execute waivers or consents; protect the rights of the taxpayer and ensure they are being treated fairly by the IRS.

Community Tax was founded with a mission to set a new standard in the tax service industry one in which the best interest of the client truly comes first. The firm was created by bankers and attorneys who had grown tired of seeing too many clients taken advantage of financially by paying outrageous upfront fees with little to no service in return. They were determined to create a company that diligently advocates on behalf of their clients. As Community Tax has grown and evolved, they've never steered away from their founding principles. Throughout their expansion, they've remained dedicated to their corporate philosophy: to guarantee their work and commit to customer satisfaction, no matter what it takes.

The premier customer service and satisfaction provided by Community Tax has contributed to the firm's rapid growth and success. Since its inception in 2010, Community Tax has assisted over 50,000 clients with their tax issues, and has resolved over $300 million in tax debt. The firm has garnered much media attention, and has been seen on media outlets such as FOX News, MSNBC, CNN, and The History Channel. They've also been rated the #1 Tax Services Company by Consumer Affairs. Community Tax's fair pricing and client prioritization makes them stand heads above the competition, and has led thousands of people to turn to their trustworthy, professional knowledge.

Although Community Tax has maintained its Chicago roots where it occupies an office, the firm now services taxpayers across the United States through its innovative online platform. They not only assist individual taxpayers, but provide top-quality services for small businesses, as well. Their team of experienced tax attorneys and professionals will work with clients to custom tailor a tax strategy which focuses not only on the present, but the future, as well. Community Tax's extensive history of helping tens of thousands taxpayers face difficult circumstances makes them equipped to handle nearly every situation even the most complex ones.

Community Tax is a full-service tax company dedicated to assisting taxpayers nationwide with all of their tax related needs
Community Tax's team of seasoned professionals provide services to assist with any issue surrounding tax law, including:

-Tax Attorneys
The firm's staff consists of expert tax Attorneys who know the ins and outs of the United States federal tax laws. These professionals treat each case on an individual basis, carefully giving it the time and attention it deserves. Community Tax's team of Attorneys can walk their clients through the complex tax codes, and break down the legal jargon issued by the IRS. They can help deal with audit or collection notices, and require the IRS to report to them instead of conducting cumbersome interviews with the client. Community Tax Attorneys will navigate their clients through confusing IRS documents, explain how to claim arcane deductions on tax returns, and list the various rights held by taxpayers. In more extreme situations, where individuals are accused of tax fraud or some other tax-related crime, an Attorney will try to keep their client out of jail by differentiating between an honest mistake and a dishonest filing. Many taxpayers who find themselves in hot water with the IRS and in need of professional help are often turned away by competitors who charge high, unaffordable rates. Community Tax understands the problem posed by steep hourly rates, and instead charges one flat, reasonable fee to investigate their client's tax situation. If the firm determines extra assistance is required to plan a resolution, they will never charge for more than what's necessary.

-Tax Resolution
In addition to legal tax defense, Community Tax specializes in tax resolution to assist individuals who owe debt to the IRS. They will help determine an individual's eligibility for the various tax debt relief programs available, such as penalty abatement, installment agreements, stair step agreements, or Offers in Compromise. They will find the right program to suit each individual's unique needs, and supply the necessary paperwork and evidence for the government to accept the proposal. Community Tax's resolution services can help alleviate interest, fees, leans, levies, garnished wages, or seized property per the result of outstanding tax debt.

-Other Specialties
Community Tax can assist clients with a variety of services benefiting their financial situation. Small business owners should refer to their bookkeeping and accounting services to keep their company running smoothly and in the green. The firm will oversee all transactions, assist with payroll accounts and records, provide checking account reports, adjust journal entries, file quarterly and annual payroll tax returns, as well as prepare W-2, 1099, and other miscellaneous documents. Both small business owners and individual taxpayers should take advantage of the firm's tax preparation service, which will find them the most savings on their return while guaranteeing an audit defense. To prevent any tax problems in the future, Community Tax additionally offers their clients a monthly monitoring and protection program. With a rich history of helping clients resolve tax issues, all of the services offered by Community Tax are designed with prevention in mind.
