I called Tax Relief Specialists after reading about the success they "claimed" to have given Customers. I called the tool free number and Anthony Caico answered. We spoke but I was leary and left it alone. He called back a month later and "reassured" me that they were a ligitmate company and they would do the work for me. I send him a Ripoff notice from this site and he read it and said their company was ligitimate and would guarantee success. This was in August of 08.
Mr. Caico then put a Mrs. Helen Lee on the case and she was my point of contact. My paperwork was "supposedly filed" with the FTB and IRS. I got a few notices from each of them that they were going to garnish my Wages if I didn't respond or pay. I called Mrs. Lee and she "claimed" she called them and told them that a "Power of Attorney" was filed with TRS. The IRS and FTB backed off but this was in November.
After 42 emails nothing has been done to lower my Tax bills to each agency. I finally go frustrated and asked Mrs. Lee when this would be resolved and she said "another 5-6 months" and that was it for me. They just keep putting me off week after week.
I called the FTB and IRS and they said they have not heard from Mrs. Lee since the Power of Attorney was filed. Back in November I when I had the IRS phone call, the Attendant said to me, "you people will not learn will you? These people (TRS) will just get your money and never do a thing for you and you all end up crying end up dealing with us like you should have from the beginning!" I guess she was right.
Stay from this bunch; and this Mr. Caico is slick and can talk. He is better than the Bush that just left the White House. I am sick to my stomach right now but have to find an Attorney that will help me get my money back.
