Optima tax is nothing but a scam

They lure you in with a salesperson who knows nothing about taxes, just to get your money. Then they stall for a year so they can do your next years taxes and hope they can find some money. When that doesn't work they offer you $350 to sign an agreement not to disparage the company. When you tell them you'll file a complaint with the BBB they laugh and say they don't care they'll just say they did offer you a $350 refund. Then they set up a payment plan with the irs that anyone could easily do themselves. I paid Optima 3k and after a year with interest and penalties from the IRS I owed roughly 2k more than when i contacted Optima in the first place. There are plenty of fake positive reviews online, read the negative ones- they all say the exact same thing- those are the ones to pay attention to

It can seem overwhelming when an individual tries to take on these collection agencies by themselves while being at risk of garnishments or property seizures.
