Having a problem with the IRS, I recieved a call from a salesperson with Omni Financial that said they could resolve my Tax issue for me, and how they were Lawyers that only dealt with Tax issues.  The first person I spoke with stated the total cost would be around $ 3,500.00.  I paid them in two installments.  Everything was going fine for about 3 months, then I recieved a phone call stating that since the amount owed to the IRS was more than first anticipated that the cost was now, $ 5,000.00.  I thought that seemed fair because the amount was more than previously thought.  Now they informed me I would have to file all back 941 and 940 forms that weren't filed along with a slew of other things, now I'm wondering what am I paying them for If I have to do all this work myself?  Anyway, I started all of this and guess what?  Now they say the Lawyers have used up all of my retainer and I need to pay more, they also said it would be best if I was incorporated, Total Now, an additional $ 5,000.00.  Reluctantly I paid it because we came so far and are nearing the end of my dilema.  Finally paid all $ 10,000.00 by January 2011, Recieved notification that on March 8,2011 we would have a phone interview with the Lawyer and the IRS case worker.  Now Omni Demanded more money, another $ 5,000.00.  agin they stated because I had nothing in the retainer.  Well that was the last draw, I refused to pay any more to them and they Immediately closed my file.  I recieved notification from the IRS that they didn't even attend the phone conference just leaving me high and dry.  STAY AWAY from Omni Financial (Florida).  I'm ready to Sue.

I have requested a Reciept showing where all the money went, My case worker, Nathanial Richards stated the file was Archived and would take awhile to retrieve and get the figures to me...Have fun working that up, what a bunch of malarky!!!!!!!!!

Interested in blogging about such practices

AUTHOR: tax_watch_blogger - (United States of America)

POSTED: Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I plan on soon starting a blog covering such practices by these tax resolution companies.  I am especially interested in writing about how their actual contracts often don't match what they promise on the phone.  

Would you be willing to send me a copy of the service's agreement (contract) they sent you?  I would obviously ask that if there is any personal information on the contract that it not be included.  

My email address is taxwatchblogger and is a gmail account (I'd spell out the email address but formatting at ripoffreport doesn't allow "at" symbols.).

Similiar Situation

AUTHOR: MJCorbin72 - (United States of America)

There are two Omni locations...one in Florida and one in Colorado(with the rest of the poor tax relief companies). 
There's a full report on them on ConsumerTaxReports.org.

Do your research if you're looking to hire someone. They expose Onmi and others on their unethical practices.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

I spoke to Omni and they will respond to this

AUTHOR: Pete_from_nyc - (United States of America)

POSTED: Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Hi,

Summary: Omni Financial is going to try to respond point by point


Details:  

An employee BT said he will forward up my comments to the top people at Omni Financial and also to the Customer Service person to formulate replies on the report(s) I read.

I was upset when I read this and other reports about Omni Financial.  Today is Wed, Jan 18, 2012, 9:38am NYC time.  I have a tax situation (see below) and thought Omni had a reasonable, fixed price fee.

So, I spoke to an employee of Omni who wanted my business (his initials are BT, but I also spoke to PL), and I told him that I was concerned about this situation spoken of on the web when you google "omni financial review"

A)  a $10k ripoff:
http://www.ripoffreport.com/lawyers/omni-financial-flori/omni-financial-florida-lite-7b3c9.htm

Although initially BT said he did not have time to respond, and many allegations were meritless, I convinced him that he did not have to respond, but rather Omni should respond, especially the person who dealt with this case("Nathanial Richards ").  

Also, I said that the Better Business Bureau (BBB) listed Omni Financial as "not BBB Accredited" and gave a C+ rating.  BT said that was a company decision not to pay the BBB fee, but BT did not know what that fee was.

So, hopefully, Omni will respond point by point on the complaints, and the customer(s) will have a chance to be contacted and reply to Omni's response.

B) I'm going to include also:

C) and this:
http://www.ripoffreport.com/income-tax/omni-financial/omni-financial-irs-tax-troubl-df4f8.htm

I should add that BT said I had a deadline and he had a lot of other customers to take care of, and that they do good work.  So, there was a pressure situation here, and BT said he'd give me a 10-day trial period for my $1,000 of the $4,000 to handle my delinquent taxes (which were due to 3rd party fraud.)  So, it seems a mixture of being reasonable and pressuring me.
