Ripoff Report REVIEW / Blue Tax Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

Blue Tax joins Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a long name for a program that does a lot for both consumers and business alike.

Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a program that benefits the consumer, which helps to increase consumer satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business Verified By Ripoff Report.

When a company or individual joins the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Program, they must make a commitment to us – in writing – to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their clients.' What does that mean? It means that Ripoff Report expects that members of our Corporate Advocacy Program will review and respond to ALL client complaints promptly. [continued below]....

..... It means that every complaint will be taken seriously and every client will be treated fairly and with respect. It means if a client did not receive what they expected, the company will work with that client to fix the issue. It means that if a client requests a refund and if there is any reasonable basis for that request, we expect the client will be given a prompt refund (some refund requests may not be reasonable, so this does not mean a refund is guaranteed in every case). “Making things right” can mean lots of different things to different people, but our point is this - by working closely with the company or individual to resolve any disputes, Ripoff Report can track the footprints of customer service to ensure that our Corporate Advocacy Program are doing everything they can to treat customers fairly and to increase their customer satisfaction.

ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM THE REST.

By Ed Magedson - Founder, Ripoff Report

Blue Tax approached Ripoff Report with the intent of wanting to resolve any customer issues and reports posted on Ripoff Report. As a Part of the Corporate Advocacy Program the member business allows Ripoff Report to send an email to all of those who filed a complaint in the past, letting the client know, the member business wanted to make things right with them, whatever it takes to do so. Ripoff Report always monitors these emails to insure the member business does what they agreed to. The people at Blue Tax did just that. Blue tax has gone through great lengths to make sure they try and resolve any and all customer issues. Blue Tax has joined the Corporate Advocacy Program because they want customers to know they will resolve any and all customer issues. They never want their clients to feel like they weren’t taken care off.

Blue Tax stated “As tax professionals, we treat our clients with respect and dignity. That is why our Vice president has put his personal email out to the public to invite any client to contact him directly. This is rare for business to take this drastic of a step to prove to our clients that they do have a place to express their dissatisfaction and that we Blue Tax are listening. This type of customer satisfaction is unparalleled and can be seen in our client testimonials.”


BLUE TAX PRESS RELEASES

LOS ANGELES, CA, October 1st, 2013 /24-7/ - Anyone that has ever been audited by the IRS knows that had they ever have to do it again, they would do things much differently. Initially, receiving the notice in the mail and knowing that the IRS is going to examine finances and tax returns scares people so much that they make hasty decisions on how to handle the situation. Often times this fear will lead people into making a terrible decision to represent themselves or even worse to allow the person who prepared the return to represent them. Despite the backlash undoubtedly Blue Tax will receive from CPAs around the country, Blue Tax unveils why you should never hire a Certified Public Accountant to handle an IRS audit, especially a local one. To truly understand this concept requires an understanding of who governs CPAs and their business practices. For an individual to become a CPA, they are required to pass a national CPA test to achieve their license. When they become a CPA they swear to uphold the laws and regulations that the IRS requires them too when preparing returns and such. Those that do not abide by the regulations can have their license revoked. So even though they may tell a tax payer that they are going to give them the best audit representation possible, CPAs will ALWAYS be careful not to ruffle feathers and or draw attention to themselves, their practice or their database of clients. When it comes to fighting for their clients, CPAs will always protect themselves first and their clients second especially if they were the ones that prepared the return under examination.

In addition to debunking the rumor that tax payers should hire a CPA to represent them in an IRS Audit, Blue Tax also encourages tax payers to never hire a local representative. The reason behind this is simple. By hiring someone local, it increases the accessibility that IRS has to the tax payer. For instance, the IRS will always want to meet in person. The reason they do this is because it allows them to get immediate answers to their questions and often times catch the tax payer off guard. When the IRS asks “Why did you or your client do this,” the representative will need to give an answer right then and there. Hiring someone out of state allows the representative the time to defer to his or her client ensuring that no damning comment can be made. This lag time will often give representatives that time they need to properly answer any IRS inquiries. A local representative will not have this luxury. In conclusion, hiring an out of state tax attorney for representation in an IRS audit is best decision a tax payer can make. Not only does this relationship allow tax payers lag time to avoid making damaging statements, but tax attorneys are not governed by the very organization they are in contention with. This type of representation does require tax payers to be phone and email savvy as well as being comfortable with hiring someone they have never met. But in the end, the benefits far outweigh the damages that can be done by hiring a local CPA.

LOS ANGELES, CA, May 9th , 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ - Blue Tax has always been known as the “Life Boat” company when someone is a struggling with a tax issue. But now, due to the overwhelming demand, Blue Tax has become the first NATIONAL Bookkeeping Firm. And in addition, Blue Tax has also opened a brand new Blue Tax Payroll division. “The one thing that we want to do with every client is try to set them up so they hopefully will never have tax trouble again. That starts with good books and accurate payroll. Most people don’t know where to turn, so after numerous requests we are very excited to announce the opening our new divisions” says Todd Lewis, Vice President of Blue Tax. Almost 40% of Blue Tax’s resolution client based has decided to have Blue Tax do their books or payroll and the user friendly approach is spreading quick. One of the secrets behind Blue Tax’s success with bookkeeping is their innovative approach to presenting the monthly report. While most bookkeepers are data entry professionals and present an excel spreadsheet, Blue Tax’s approach specifically addresses each businesses areas of improvement. “I know as a business owner, the last thing I want to do is look at some spread sheet, that is why we created the Four Points of Profitability.” Every month Blue tax provides a detailed but very simple report that focuses in on four areas that affects a specific business’s bottom line. This innovative approach to business bookkeeping has made Blue Tax the number one choice for those who need to have accurate reports but can’t afford the cost of an in-house bookkeeper.

LOS ANGELES, CA, February 11, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ - Filing income taxes can be a daunting, confusing, and costly endeavor for anyone. Oftentimes, it is one of these three reasons that people fail to file their taxes on time or, sometimes, even at all. After not filing for one year, often the same people are intimated the following year from addressing the previous year’s oversight and pretty soon a few years go by before they decide to rectify the situation. As was the case for Mr. Oizondo (Orlando, FL) who came to the Blue Tax offices distraught that he had not filed a single tax return in six years. The Blue Tax team quickly responded by preparing and filing all returns for the client within a month and a half. In the time it took the IRS to process the returns, the IRS misplaced some pertinent paperwork in process. However, since one of the things Bleu Tax is known for is their follow up, none of this slipped through the cracks, and the Blue Tax team was able to resend the IRS the missing documentation. In the time Blue Tax and Mr. Oizondo were waiting for a response from the IRS, Blue Tax prepared a financial analysis based on Mr. Oizondo’s income, assets, and expenses to prove to the IRS what he was capable of paying. Once the IRS posted the balances owed, the result was that the client owed an outstanding debt of $39,000. However, because Blue Tax had prepared the client’s financial analysis, they were armed with the information to challenge the IRS’s findings with what was a practical and reasonable solution to this debt as it was clear from the analysis that the client could not afford to pay what he owed.


The IRS reviewed the package that Blue Tax submitted, thereby agreeing to the request of placing the client on a Currently Non-Collectable (CNC) status. The Blue Tax team also explained to the client that he may be eligible for an Offer In Compromise (OIC) based on the amount of debt owed and his financial analysis which demonstrated that he was upside down in his monthly expenses. The client asked that Blue Tax prepare the paperwork to apply for that status as well which they did and are currently awaiting a response from the IRS. In the end, the client was able to sleep soundly knowing that his debts had all been accounted for and that he could possibly even be approved for an Offer In Compromise which could reduce his debt even further. Blue Tax came through with a great ending to a client’s stressful situation once again.

WHY BLUE TAX IS BETTER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS

LOS ANGELES, CA, July 8th, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ - In business, owners have many decisions to make when running the day-to-day. Some like to take on all the responsibility for themselves, while others seek outside help. It has been proven time and time again that those “Do It Yourself” types have a tendency to get locked in their own bubble and the company’s growth is stifled. However, those owners who decide to outsource some of their business needs, often get frustrated that many of the services they outsource are not under the same roof, even if it makes sense organically that they would be. To help ease the stress of owners by providing in “One Stop Shop,” Blue Tax is proud to announce bookkeeping, payroll, and tax preparation services all under one roof. Our clients have been telling us for a long time that it is frustrating having to go to three different professionals for what seems to be the same work. They are tired of allocating their time to the Tax Preparer, Accountant, and Bookkeeper, only to tell them what each is doing,” says Todd Lewis, Vice President of Blue Tax. “With Blue Tax’s ‘One Stop Shop’ philosophy on providing these services, gone are the days of wasting time trying to get all of your financial professionals to communicate with each other. Our program allows all facets to communicate; all under one roof. Our clients couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Blue Tax’s approach to outsourced bookkeeping, tax preparation and payroll has become a highly valued resource to its clients. By comparing its database of thousands of various successful client businesses, Blue Tax has compared operating expenses and methods, so they that can suggest changes to clients to make their business more profitable. Through the implementation of these suggested changes, Blue Tax has been able to make their clients’ businesses 7% to 15% more profitable on average. Blue Tax allows its financial professionals to communicate directly with each other regarding each aspect of its client’s businesses. With its under one roof approach to bookkeeping, payroll, and tax preparation, this has eliminated the boundaries and communication clogs that has been debilitating businesses for years. This pioneering approach is soon to become the norm and expectation of all successful businesses.

"At Blue Tax we pride ourselves in providing the best tax professionals to work on our client's cases. Nowhere else in the world is such an experienced and knowledgeable group ever been gathered in the same company to obtain the best possible resolution to our clients allowed by law. Here is a recent client story that will blow your mind.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, August 3, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ - John (Walnut Creek, CA) came to Blue Tax for failure to comply with outstanding IRS taxes owed. He owed taxes for 2007-2008 and had also filed bankruptcy for those years. Once the bankruptcy was discharged, the IRS started collections against John again. Blue Tax’s challenge was to ensure that John did not get collected on and to establish a resolution. John’s case was complicated. After completing the financials for him, it was then determined that he was good applicant for Currently Non-Collectible status (CNC). What made this case complicated was that he had a lot of medical expenses that needed to be substantiated. The IRS did not allow very many of John’s expenses.

Blue Tax was able to explain to the IRS that John was in a hardship position due to his many medical conditions requiring him to pay outrageous expenses just to survive. After substantiating his medical conditions, the IRS accepted Blue Tax’s application for John’s CNC status. At the end, the experts at Blue Tax satisfied all of the client’s needs while going above and beyond to secure a favorable outcome for him. John was so extremely grateful to Blue Tax, that he submitted this trust link on TrustLink.org: “I wanted to express my appreciation for Sean and Jimmy at Blue Tax. They did a great job for me with the IRS, and helped to solve a fairly serious problem. Good communication, very conscientious, just first rate service. Thanks, guys.” For more information about Blue Tax and its ability to help taxpayers resolve their tax problems, please visit www.BlueTax.com or call (888) 491-4044 for a free confidential consultation.
