What our customers say about us

We’re fortunate to work with commercial lending leaders across the country. Check out what they have to say about Tax Guard.

The alerts that we receive from Tax Guard regarding clients with new tax liabilities, letters of intent, tax liens, and potentially defaulting installment agreements are key to allowing maximum time to deal with issues that arise. These services have allowed us to retain many clients with tax issues and have helped improve our clients’ tax compliance. Ron Rechan, Chief Financial Officer - Millennium Funding
While many credit services provide information related to existing federal tax liens, Tax Guard reporting takes it a step further and reports current liabilities, any installment agreements for those liabilities and whether clients are in compliance with agreements. What’s more, the monthly monitoring option allows us to track client compliance with existing agreements and be alerted to additional liabilities that can show up and present future risks. Barry Kehl, Executive Director of Underwriting - Oak Street Funding
Tax Guard provides the most current information available which allows us to make informed decisions in a matter of minutes. Providing such fast and accurate turn around has enabled us to assist our clients much faster and limit any risk. Anne Capps, Executive Vice President, American Receivable Corporation
Using Tax Guard for ongoing monitoring is easier, lowers risk, and saves time gathering documentation from customers to ensure payroll taxes were paid and deposits were made. More than that, Tax Guard specializes in this space. We prefer to use an expert to help us and help our clients. Gen Merritt-Parikh, President, Allied Affiliated Funding
Tax Guard has enabled us to maintain client relationships that otherwise may have been terminated. In at least six to eight instances, their team has uncovered unknown IRS liens and assisted in a resolution that allowed us to continue funding. This assistance has been a huge asset to our business by removing risk and exposure. Bret M. Schuch, EVP – Division Manager, Goodman Factors
