Company History

Acme Tax Relief Corp specializes in tax debt resolution. We offer an aggressive representation of taxpayers before the IRS. We assist clients in exercising their rights before the IRS. Our goal is always to resolve a client’s tax debt for as little as legally possible. We remove the anxiety of dealing with the IRS.

Acme Tax Relief operates at the highest ethical standards. Our prices are not based on how much you owe or how much cash you have but rather on the tasks needed to resolve your case. If you owe $50,000 and your resolution path requires the same steps as the person who owes $25,000, you pay the same price because it is the same amount of work. We don’t use the bait-and-switch method. We will not request a contract rewrite once we agree on what needs to be done.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to build life-long relationships with our clients in Columbus, Ohio. We aim to see you get the tax resolution and relief you need, achieve your financial goals, and make informed decisions about your tax situation.
