I have lost a lot of money that could have been paid to the IRS...PLEASE do not fall for their convincing methods of getting you to pay money, then request for more, and more...you are throwing good money after bad.

I am soooo sorry this happened to me. Please don't believe the HYPE!

omni financial has stung us along for almost 4 yrs. my husband is on disability and i stay home to take care of him. every week or so we would talk to the person handleing our case. she would say don't worry it'll be ok. one week before the amout owed by our former company posted we were informed that they could no longer deal with our case because it would cost them too much money and effort to do so. so now it's up to me to fix what they were not capable of doing.we make very little money whether the amount is 10, 000 or 100, 000 dollars we can't pay the IRS and now we don't even have the money to hire another company. i just might hire a lawyer to sue omni for the amout we owe the goverment. if you have IRS debt pick another company.they did not solve the problem for which they were hired.they lost or neglected to send the paperwork to the IRS in a timely manner which made us look non-compliant. hopefully i can find an . honest person to help me figure out all the paperwork i have to fill out for the offer in compromise and maybe i should find a job that pays me 175 dollars an hour to do absolutely NOTHING.

Hi musicboxdancer-

The best way to hurt a company or practitioner is to file a complaint- its easy, put it in writing, email it, ask for a response within 30 days- They don't like the practice of a taxpayer hiring someone to help them and then not doing what they said they were going to do either- especially in your situation. You can contact me personally and I am that honest person that can help you figure out all of your paperwork- and because of your situation, I will do it a no charge- email me at taxresolutionspecialist@q.com and I will help you!

A complaint should be written in a letter format. The letter should include the tax practitioner's name, address, telephone number, designation (i.e., attorney, certified public accountant, enrolled agent, enrolled actuary, etc.), a detailed description of the allegations, and any documents that support those allegations. Please direct all questions and referrals to:

Internal Revenue Service
Office of Professional Responsibility
SE:OPR, Room 7238/IR
1111 Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20224

or by facsimile at 202-622-2207

or you may email us at OPR@irs.gov

I urge anyone dealing with this company to run the other way. Larry Fischer general manager holds hour long meetings with mcdonalds applications explaining that we will all be fired if we dare ask to take a break from unpaid double shifts to see the children we have not seen. ( mine in a month) He explains that we will be fired because we have not stolen enough money from the consumer just as of yet and his paycheck looks bad when we dont steal enough. has anyone seen the boiler room? Larry Fischer. Thats the name you remember. LArry fischer. He is a thief.

I am local attorney in CO with inside knowledge of Omni. I would be more than willing to help anyone or any business file multiple complaints (given they are legitimate) against Omni with all necessary parties.

Please contact me at anytime, or post a comment with your contact information.

I have worked for Omni Financial and if you are dumb enough to hire ANYBODY to handle your tax resolution instead of reading and figuring out what is public information then you are dumb enough to fall for Omni's scam. Go to irs.gov do some reading, talk to the IRS-they will help. Oh, and when it comes down to it, you have to pay your taxes. Don't pay Omni, just pay the tax. You'll probably come out ahead. In my year of employment, I truly was able to help 1 person and that is because the IRS approved it before it went into review. Other than that I was baby-sitting clients and "burning through retainer". Save your money and don't hire any "tax resoltuion specialist". The requirements for Installment Plans, Offer in Compromise, Penalty Abatements are all at irs.gov and are the only tax resoltuions these agencies use. Also, file a CDP and you can postpone a levy notive for 30-60 days if not longer. For wage garnishments or any other issues that the IRS is not helping with call your local taxpayer advocate. They will help, oh and these agencies use them too. I really tried to help the clients while their resoltuion as an assistant, but Omni makes it hard to complete this task with any type of intergrity. I decided to try to keep mine and quit after realizing it would never change.

I was also scammed by Omni Financial for over $10, 000.00. This past Spring 2009, Omni dropped us because we could not pay another $3, 000 retainer fee. This was the third company we hired trying to do the right thing and fix our IRS problems from when we were younger and dumber. We were with Omni for over two years doing exactly what was asked of us, and all we did was wait. As we waited the retainer fee's kept being asked of us, and the IRS interest and penalties kept growing. Finally, my husband was out of work because of the economy (he was a self-employed sub-contractor; that is how we got in dept in the first place), and I was out of work because I just had a baby in May. I wish I knew of someone who would get Omni Financial back without charging me up front. To this day I am still waiting on the IRS. To come to find out, Omni kept saying that they were waiting on a responce to a letter that was sent to the IRS, but after we were dropped by Omni and had to contact the IRS ourselves, we found out that there was no letter sent. I am broke, about to get forclosed on my house, and discusted about all the dishonest crooks out in the world taking an advantage on vulnerable people who made bad choices in their lives, but are trying to correct them!!! Help
To: The lawyer above, please email me and make a obvious responce to who you are so I do not think you are junk mail. Thanks. I truly want to find away to make Omni Financial pay. I want my Money!!!

NEVER GO FOR AN OFFER IN COMPROMISE!!! ITS A SCAM! Okay, an offer in compromise is when you offer the IRS a certain amount of money, good amount, other than what you really owe. Omni also gets you on a payment plan to make sure that you can pay the offer in a period of time. If you default or are late with a payment the IRS will cancle everything, you get your ORIGINAL DEBT back PLUS all the intrest and penalties from when you were paying on it. IT is a SCAM!

My Company owed the IRS 30, 000 & State of Indiana 180, 000.00 paid omini Financial to help me in my tax problems all they did was drag there feet and take my money Then the State of Indiana passed a law in 2007 any bis owed back taxes they would'nt renew the bis. licence .Omini financial asked for more money and they would make arrangements with the state so I can stay open. Then Omni said the state will do payment arrangement. The payment arrangment was more than I could afford . Then they needed more money to continue my case .They told me the state wont negiotiate so I would have to close or pay it. Closed in 2008 Lost Everything. Waisted 2 years and a lot of money to solve tax dept and still owe to this day with no income to pay .Please Dont USE OMIN FINIANCIAL IT WILL BE THE WORST THING IN YOUR LIFE .

In my business as an Enrolled Agent, this type of behavior seems to be the norm. You need to ask serious questions about how much you are spending and for what. Be very leery of anyone who keeps stringing you along for more money. If you would like to talk to someone, I offer free consultations. I work nationwide and I will not lie cheat or steal to make a dollar. We all need professionals to help us sometimes, just do your best to insure you are hiring a professional - Keith Craig - JKC Tax Solutions LLC - 866-297-8708 jkctaxsolutions@gmail.com

I have worked for several of these companies over the past ten years and have the inside scoop on all the major tax resolution companies in Colorado. I am currently working with several state AG's and have shared my stories with a Federal Marshall.

For the 411 on these companies: http://taxresolutionincolorado.blogspot.com/2010/05/blowing-whistle-on-colorado-tax.html

If you need any additional information on these companies I'd be more than happy to tell you the truth. My email is tax.truth@yahoo.com

i was cold called by omni in 2008, they said it would take $2500 to resolve my tax issues with the irs.after blowing thru that with no progress, they requested $2500 more which should complete the process.after that i got a phone call and a letter that those $ were used up and my case still had not been assigned to an irs case worker. after i was on the phone 1 time for 40 minutes with the irs i got my case assigned. i then called and faxed them a letter asking them to finish my case for the money i already gave them or refund it. i have never heard from them since.
