How do I refer clients to the Tax Debt Resolution service?

We partnered with Community Tax to offer tax debt resolution and IRS representation though a referral program.1 Refer clients to a team of specialists and Community Tax will reduce your workload by working directly with your clients, while you maintain the support channels to use at your discretion.


Why would I refer clients to Community Tax? 

When you refer clients to Community Tax through Santa Barbara Tax Products Group, our agreement with Community Tax ensures the referral is limited to tax debt resolution services only. Tax preparation or other financial services are not offered to your clients.


Earn 10% of the total tax investigation fee that your client paid to Community Tax.2 In cases where tax debt resolution requires filing prior year tax returns tax professionals are paid $150 per return.2 In every situation, Community Tax reminds clients to return to your office at tax time to file their return.
