When you are looking for solutions to your tax problems, you must hire a company with the experience necessary to get the job done. At Success Tax Relief, we have over 60 years of experience solving consumer and business tax debts. We understand that it can be quite scary when the IRS shows up at your door or calls you at all hours of the night. Give us a call today at 877-825-1179 so that we can help you put a stop to those harassing phone calls and visits from intimidating IRS agents. At Success Tax Relief, we like to think that our service sets us apart when compared to other companies in our line of work. As a small business, we live by the following values which have contributed largely to our incredible success with helping others settle their tax debts.Open Door Policy – At Success Tax Relief, we operate under an open door policy at all times. Many of our competitors will not provide their office locations for fear that their customers will actually show up at their door. We welcome that interaction and would be happy to meet with you at our offices. Transparency is one of our most important principles and therefore we look forward to meeting each and every one of our customers if necessary.
Mobile – Many tax relief agencies operate entirely over the phone. We prefer to operate based on our customer’s needs. If you need us to come to you, that is perfectly fine. By physically visiting some of our customers, it has shown to improve our credibility in the tax relief business when compared to our competitors who often refuse to visit any of their customers.
24/7 Availability – We realize that your tax problems do not only occur between the hours of 9am – 5pm. We are available around the clock to speak with you about your tax relief needs. Not only do we want to help you with your tax debt, we also want to ensure that your debt is settled, so you can continue on the road to financial security.
Small Business Mentality – Success Tax Relief consists of a small group of tax relief specialists with a wealth of experience dealing with IRS issues. Unlike some of our competitors, you will always be able to talk with an actual human being when you call our offices as opposed to a computerized answering service telling you to call back when it is more convenient. Our customers greatly appreciate this added level of customer service which is often unheard of in the tax relief business. While we may be a small business in terms of number of employees, our knowledge equals, if not exceeds, many of our competitors.
Nationwide Service – While Success Tax Relief is based in the Houston area, we are a nationwide tax relief firm. With thousands of customers from around the country, you can rest easy knowing that your tax problems are being handled by professionals with the necessary experience to get the job done for you in a timely manner.
Are you in trouble with the IRS? Have you failed to pay taxes for several years and are being hounded by the IRS? If so, you need the services of a tax relief firm. Give Success Tax Relief a call today at 877-825-1179 so that we can help you determine what it is you owe the IRS, if anything at all. Many of our customers find out that the IRS made a mistake which, when corrected, resulted in them receiving money back as opposed to owing money to the IRS. This information is impossible to obtain unless you have a professional tax relief company working on your behalf to get to the bottom of your IRS problems as soon as possible.

Tell Me More
I hope you’ll forgive me for being blunt.
We are Thelma Sample and Deaphalis Sample, tax business owners and realize that you may not be used to seeing tax professionals talk like this. It’s not our intention to offend (We’re actually being very careful with our words–We are tax professionals, after all).
But I think you’ll agree that the times we’re currently facing require a little straight talk.
Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!
As a tax professional, it truly breaks our heart, knowing that just a few thousand, or even a few hundred bucks for us “regular guys” out of that vast pool of overcharging could make a world of difference–and they are just sitting there, unclaimed! And with the economy we’re facing now…it’s essential that the “right” professional handles your taxes and other financial matters.
You see, all tax professionals are not the same. From the “discount” chains (notice the quotes) to classic accounting firms, most fly through tax season in a disorganized mess–bleary-eyed and hopped-up on caffeine. It’s no wonder that they treat you like a number and lapse into excuses and tax-talk. (We told you that we would be blunt.)
Feel free to poke around our site and discover why We’ve been called “The Most Trusted Tax Professional in the Houston Area.”
Talk again soon,
Thelma Sample, CEO/President
Deaphalis Sample, Vice President
