Community Tax Relief has been nothing but wonderful, and I do not know what I would have done without them. I researched them, along with other companies, and felt that they were the perfect company to handle my tax situation when I was searching for help. They did not call me. I contacted them. This is a first. These "Omni Financial" and other companies who have to use leads to get business, I have no use for them. l also do not go by the rating that the BBB assig

Great Service

I understand that MONEY makes the world go round and if you own a company, and weren’t in it for the money then you wouldn’t own a business, but I can honestly say that Mr. Dayan is also in it for his clients as well, he has went out of his way to help me with understanding, and compassion to my situation. If anyone out there is in need of help I would strongly recommend this company. At the completion of my arrangement with the IRS, Community Tax will have saved me almost 10,000.00 dollars!

Thank You Community Tax Relief

by | April 8, 2014
Community Tax Relief changed our lives forever. My boyfriend has owed back taxes for quite a few years. It got to the point where we needed to do something. I did extensive research on many different companies selling their services for tax resolution. I came across Community Tax Relief, called them about Ron's tax issues and the rest is history. The IRS settled for $500 on a $120,000 tax debt. Thank you Daniel Urban for your diligence and professionalism.

Worth every penny!

by | March 6, 2014
Community Tax Relief, resolved my tax issues via an offer in compromise. This was to my great benefit. The majority of my tax liability was wiped out. Jennifer Schaffer and the entire team assigned to my case deserve the credit. I recommend this organization to everyone.

Best Help Ever

by | December 12, 2013
CTR saved my life so to speak. They helped me so much with my taxes and saved me so much money. My situation was very bad and went back fro years upon years and they managed to get me help through the IRS. Even though it was a sticky situation and there was the possibility that they may not be able to help me because of the IRS's decisions, I took the chance and used them. They up front made me no promises that they could actually help me. But they did and I am TAX free. I recommend them to anyone !!

Communit Tax Relief

by | November 24, 2013
Daniel Urban and the entire CTR team were both professional and helpful throughout the entire process. They made a stressful situation do-able while working with me month to month with the lawyer payments. A cloud that has hung over my head for over 10 years has finally been removed. What a relief!!! Thank you Community Tax Relief for removing the burden that seemed an impossible task when we first began this process a year ago. Happy Holidays to all my friends at CTR !!!!

Rescued from a terrible situation.

by | November 16, 2013
We were in dire straits when we first found CTR. Hadn't filed taxes for 7 years and this was late 2008. I'm a recovering alcoholic & I drank for a long time and did not pay attention to our finances at all. I was fired from a 22 yr. job; my husband was disabled by cancer & lost his business; we were on food stamps and praying to God to help us climb out. We found CTR who took our case, negotiated with the IRS & state and now we are in compliance with our taxes and no longer have that awful situation.

There is life after IRS

by | August 19, 2013
My husband & I were caught by our tax preparers lack of expertise in completing our 2009 tax returns. Consequently & because of many other oversights on their part, we were notified by the IRS in 2013 that we owed $17,000 in uncollected taxes, interest & penalties. Mr. William Anderson took on our case & presented a resolution which was accepted. Thanks to CTR we have our lives back & hopes for a future

Recommendation of Daniel Urban of Community Tax Relief

by | July 25, 2013
My Name is John Covan. The Federal and state Tax battle I was facing was overwhelming. With the help of Daniel Urban and Community Tax Relief I was able to breathe and with their help was able to put together a program that will allow me to become current very soon. The strong negotiating skills he used save me thousands. It is impossible for me to recommend him to strongly. Thanks again Daniel.

Needless to say & months later my issues are resolved and i can rest easy.All the personnel were professional and kind,without being condescending. Thanks for giving me back a stress free life and to anyone needing this service,this is who you want in your corner. Many thanks .

Community Tax Relief Support

by | July 17, 2013
Community Tax Relief was absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made. After over a year of confusing letters from both the IRS and State claims they were able to help me clear over $30,000 in back taxes and penalty's. They were even able to find a $4,000 refund owed from 2009. I would absolutely recommend Community Tax Relief for anyone who is facing similar issues with the IRS. Sincerely Jose Lopez New York, NY


by | June 13, 2013
Unbelievable!!!! Thank you and your team for all your help. My family and I are in the greatest appreciation for the miracle before us! I was skeptical from day one but as I continued to communicate with everyone that was on my case, faith was restored each and everyday. I knew there was no better company to handle my nightmare I have been carrying for over a decade. I tried handling this myself and failed. But what didn't fail me was 'Community Tax Relief'. Once again THANK YOU CTR TEAM!!!!.

Best decision to make

by | June 5, 2013
As you know the IRS is relentless on collecting. You can lose everything you own and still owe them. Community tax relief is very good at what they do, they lowered what I owed to what I could afford and I am now able move on with my life. The best advise I can give anyone is to call them with your tax problems. They will stay with you till its resolved.The best people I ever had the privilege to deal with.Call them.

Community Tax Relief and Daniel Urban

by | June 4, 2013
I used Community Tax Relief for a ongoing tax problem that I had. Key Word HAD! I worked on the situation with Daniel Urban Esq at CTR and my problems with the IRS were solved faster than I expected, the outcome was better than I could have possibly imagined or imagined it would be. Daniel Urban ESQ was very professional and understanding and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Community Tax Relief for any tax situations you may have, even your end of year taxes.

Sleeping at night again....

by | May 28, 2013
Mr. Urban no only set our minds at ease but helped us through out the whole process and was available by phone and email whenever we had a question/concern and was very reassuring and helpful. We are happy to say that Mr. Daniel Urban came through for us and we are very happy with his and Community Tax Relief's services and would recommend him to anyone that asks us how we settled our issues with the IRS.

thank you

by | May 28, 2013
Wanted to give Daniel Urban and his team a big thank you for all of their help. They have assisted us in saving over 22K in back taxes..... this is a giant relief for our family. You guys are great

by | May 23, 2013
I am so surprised that Community Tax Relief could help me fix my taxes from 2006, 2007, and 2008. They eliminated a large amount of debt (approx. $503,000), which was one of my greatest burdens. I credit Daniel Urban for helping me through this process. I am overwhelmed and extremely grateful

Relief Relief Relief

by | May 14, 2013
5 BIG STAR'S FOR SURE. I was behind on three different tax years and in just a few months an installment agreement was established and a letter of acceptance was sent to me from the IRS. With that being said, my tax debt will be paid within seven years at about a 90 percent lesser amount. 7 years at $50 per month, and a 90 percent discount. You do the math then make that phone call.

CTR Really Worked

by | April 22, 2013
I was in such a mess and the IRS had me cornered.At first I REALLY didn't know who to trust but after my first phone call I felt like they would help me. It took a little while but the wait was worth it. CTR saved me over $20,000.00 and kept the IRS at bay during the whole process.I would strongly recommend them

running from the IRS

by | April 15, 2013
After runnning from the IRS for over 10 years it's a relief to know that there was a company that made it all happen. CTR negotiated less than pennies on the dollar. Their customer service is excellent they always kept me posted on the steps in completing an offer in compromise. Definitely would recommend them to a family member or friend.

A satisfied customer's review of CTR

by | April 12, 2013
I owed the IRS a large amount of money and sadly, this was not my first time. I was ripped off by an outfit in CA previously and was very leery going into this with CTR. I didnt save a dime due to our situation, but the service and knowledge of the CTR staff in particular Daniel Urban are second to NONE! I have been down this road before and this experience was 100 times better than the last. The money savings is determined by your situation, but these are people who will work with you and you can trust!

ya thats right 5 stars 4 times. BELIEVE IT!

by | April 9, 2013
SO HERE IS MY STORY. 6 MONTHS AGO I OWED THE IRS $4000 FROM 2007 AND HAD NOT FILED ANY TAXES SINCE 2008.On 4/8/13 i checked my mailbox and had a letter from irs telling me i was free and clear from all back taxes and it had a check for over $900 with it. lol something that i thought would take $1000's and years to fix only took 6 payments and 6 month and put the irs owing me $$$$$.

    Thank you for sharing your experience, Wes. Was it unfiled returns you needed to file or a tax debt that you were able to resolve so quickly with CTR's help?

The Help You Need

by | March 15, 2013
CTR helped me get through an insanely hard tax situation - and I was thoroughly impressed with them as an organization throughout the process. Further, once the nightmare was over, they continued their service to me for my regular accounting needs and again I was very impressed. They are worth a look for anyone who wants a tax expert in their back pocket.

Excellent job to Community Tax Relief

Tax Resolution

by | February 28, 2013
I was a consultant and ran into some hardships during 2009. I was behind on taxes and was incurring penalties which was a very difficult and impossible feat to manage. I contacted Community Tax Relief and they resolved my issues with the IRS and prevented them from garnishing my wages and putting a lien on my house. Now that I'm a client with CTR, I submit my tax information to them faithfully. It's takes the burden off of my shoulders knowing that my filings are accurate and done on time.

relief from back taxes

by | February 8, 2013
After not filing taxes for 5 years due to claiming "exempt" to maximize my income, it finally caught up to me. The fear of the IRS was constantly on my mind. I came across "community tax relief".....they solved my problem!! They negotiated a payment plan I could afford and brought my tax status current.!! I now have them prepare my taxes every year! I feel they are even better than H&R Block and others!

A FANTASTIC Company to work with!

by | October 31, 2012
I was faced with a situation that would have been very detrimental to to my family, when I contacted Community Tax Relief I was a little hesitant due to all the horror stories that I had read about other tax relief companies, CTR handled my case with care, urgency, and great communication so, if you are in need of a company that can solve your problems in a professional and timely manner contact CTR and let them work for you and deal with wonderful people like Alan, Jennifer, Jessica, Nicky.

community tax releif - testimonial

by | October 9, 2012
COMMUNITY TAX RELIEF Testimonial Simply stated, I am one of those people you hear about in the news, a reluctant statistical participant in the nationwide financial breakdown. Just a few years ago I was married, owned my home, real estate investments, and a college savings plan for my daughters. As the economy started to crumble, so did my life as I knew it. My children and I have now been through family breakdown and divorce, bankruptcy, job loss and eviction. The funds slated to cover tax liabilities were to be generated via sales of investment properties, but those properties never sold due to inflated appraisals and sub-prime mortgages and ultimate they foreclosed, one after the other. I received several visits from the Sheriff’s office serving papers, and as those unwelcome visits became more frequent, so did the letters and warnings from the IRS. I owed more than $35,000.00 worth of back taxes, and was in no position to get even close to cover that kind of debt – debt that I accrued as part of the housing bubble and subsequent devastating bust and always intended to pay, until I could not. I was just a few weeks away from having my wages levied, and losing my last bit of emotional reserve when I heard an announcement on my local radio station reflecting the services provided by Community Tax Relief. I called the toll free number the next day. After long months of complications, stress, and countless hours of work compiling supportive documentation, I received the final word of acceptance by the IRS of the Offer in Compromise prepared by the attorneys at CTR. There are no words to express the relief that I feel. I have not been an easy customer, but the case manager, Rob Kitson never lost his patience with me. He explained the details of my case to me over and over again, when I was too stressed out to retain and process the information given, and I never had to feel as though I was a ‘bad person’ for having ‘failed’ in my obligations and liabilities. There is a light at the end of the tunnel for me now, and the professional expertise of the staff at CTR helped me get there.

The best help with IRS problems

by | September 10, 2012
I am very satisfied with the help from all the Staff at Community Tax Relief. I didn't know where to start when I called but Bobby got me calmed down an reassured and connect with the appropriate people to help me in the organization. He never left me with any unanswered questions. Everyone I have been in contact with has kept all their promises to follow-up and made sure I was completely satisfied, Rob is very knowledgeable and professional. I can finally get some sleep.

Helpful Service

by | September 1, 2012
Community Tax Relief is a life saver. Sara Engbretson and Dan Urban, their professional tax negotiators, were able to secure a Hardship Status for me on over $28,000 owed to the IRS. Gina Sepe and her team worked very hard to help me understand my options and always took time to answer all of my questions. I recommend that you give them a call to discuss what they can do for you.

Community Tax Relief

by | December 28, 2011
Hi, my name is Tammy and I live in Arizona. I was so far behind in back taxes that I needed to get relief because I owed over 50,000 dollars in back taxes. I actually found Community tax Relief . They took my cases and had my own advisor and lawyer to help. They went to work right away on my case and within two months my case was settled and IRS are no long longer sending me threatening letters. The great thing about It now don't have pay them back any money as long as I maintain my agreement which is very simple, I have to file my taxes every year on time and don't owe anything on my future taxes. I am so happy with their service. The other wonderful thing is that it all goes away in 2021. I would wholeheartedly advise anyone that owes back taxes and can't afford them to get in touch with Community Tax Relief. I don't know what I would have done without their services. They saved me from so much heartache. Thanks you Community Tax Relief. I could be any happier with my outcome.

Great work!
