Optima Tax Relief

Complete Rip-Off

Optima Tax Relief is a complete rip-off and I will be contacting my attorney, the news station, and anyone else who will listen.

They scammed the wrong one!.. They took $2800.00 of my money only to tell me 6 months later that I make too much money so they couldn’t help me.

I contacted the IRS and was able to set up a payment plan MYSELF.

These crooks at OTR couldn’t even do that. Count your days OTR because after my Attorney is finish dealing with you, you will NEVER be able to scam anyone else again!

  1. Will join class action!!!

    Recently figured out Optima Tax Relief has been scamming my boyfriend, and during a pandemic no less. He was trying to do the right thing and this scam relies on peoples’ lack of understanding the in IRS and taxes to rob people. They know that hard working people don’t have the time to sift through all the red flags. Made a concise complaint on the BBB website which was not posted bc they claim to have made a “good faith” attempt. They offered him a refund on ONE payment and have stolen thousands. As many of you have said, they messed with the wrong person. I don’t know if any of you can reach out to us, but we will be making noise and looking for a class action to join. Community sticks together against predators like these.

  2. My Name Anita and Alfred Johnson
    Optima tax relief scam us out of 5000.00
    They tragg the case for four years

  3. I hired Optima tax relief to assist me with my over $50000 bill with the IRS. I needed Optima to do three things for me: 1) review my previous tax returns to determine if I actually owed the $50000 amount, 2) complete three years of tax returns and 3) work with the IRS on my behalf to lower my total amount to an amount I could handle. Optima did one years tax return 2013 did it wrong. I paid Optima over $5000 for incorre

  4. Optima Tax \Relief is a scam and a rip-off

    I had reached an agreement for payment of back taxes with the IRS, although the IRS could not be specific about what I owed for so the agreement was never implimented. I asked for and received an extension to hire an outside agency that would audit my account and amend my filed tax returns if needed. In October2019, I hired Optima with a specific set of instructions. I was assured by David Choe, Sylvia Rosas, Catalina Hernandez that these issues would be addressed. By January I was receiving letters from the IRS that stated that I had defaulted on an agreement and was fined an even greater amount. I called Optioma and was assured by Catallina Hernandez that they had not entered me into an agreement without my consent and never would. I began receiving more mail from IRS stating that I would be sued over delinquent account, I again called Optima and spoke with Joanna Rauda who told me three times that I was not entered into an agreement without my consent. On the 28th of January I was sent an Email from her stating they had entered into an agreement without my consent. I was lied to several times by two different representatives and told I didn’t know what I was talking about, very rudely I might add. I kept trying to contact Optima, many emails sent no answer. Many calls no call backs.So not only did the Optima representatives lie to me, which is recorded. But they entered into an agreement without my consent and with holding that information from me ( I had to call the IRS and find out myself). But instead of getting me out of debt with the IRS they got me into MORE trouble and debt with the IRS. I have attempted many times via voice and E-mail to resolve this situation. No results. I tried to explain to them my daughter had just passed on Feb. 9,2020 and I had to borrow money for her funeral expenses, but they didn’t care they still took payment out of my account for a job they knew they already screwed up and set me up for failure. This company cheats and lies. This company should do the right thing, and give me back the money they took over and above the initial investigative fee. The appropriate thing to do would for this company to take responsibility and also compensate me for the increased debt incurred to me by the IRS, due to Optima representative getting me into an agreement without my knowledge or consent, and the fines for not meeting the obligations of an agreement I didn’t know I was in due to optima representatives lying and hiding the fact.


    Optima’s been “working” on my case for years, and now the IRS are garnishing my pay since October 2019. They don’t seem to care much about that, assuring me that their “professionals” are working very hard to get a “temporary” release for the garnishment. Temporary? WTF!!

    After notifying them that all communications will have to be by phone in future because my cable and internet is being cut due to not being able to pay it anymore, they keep on sending documents to my e-mail that need to be signed. I went to the local library to use a computer to check my e-mail. I’m a truck driver out on the road most of the time, so I’m effectively cut off from internet access.
    To try to call the so-called expert professionals or any tax preparer or case manager has proved virtually impossible. There’s always someone taking and screening the call and then promising that the person will return your call “within 48 hours.” 48 hours?? WTF!!
    Do not deal with these people. Avoid them like the plague. I’m filing a complaint with the BBB as well.

  6. Don't go with Optima.

    My experience with this company was awful, I paid the $495 fee to get started to help my hubby figure the I.R.S. thing out. Absolutely no communication with them. When I tried to contact them, it turned out that my guy quit his job, they assured me that my credit card didn’t get charged for the 3000 dollars I would have been charged.

    I switched to Rushtax Relief, they are better I think. They filed taxes for us, we haven’t seen any levies, letters, etc., we are just waiting for the results. Don’t go with Optima…..
