Associated Fees

Fortress Tax Relief does not charge a consultation fee when you speak with a company sales representative. A price is quoted after the consultation and must be paid to consult with an attorney.

Process & Time Frame

Fortress does not quote a time frame in which an inquiry will be responded to. However, based on their responsiveness and the high level of competition in their industry, it would be a fair assumption that they would respond promptly.

Application & Handling Process

After filling out an online form or placing a call to Fortress, you are transferred to a sales representative who is not an attorney. They will, at no charge, ask questions about your case, quote you a fee, and e-mail you a proposal.

If you move forward with the company, you will then consult with an attorney. They will review your signed contract, review your case with you, and confirm that they can handle your case.

The online procedure to begin this process is straightforward:

Required Information

Fortress Tax Relief requires limited personal information to get started. They ask for basic information (name, address, phone, email) but do not ask for a Social Security number, the specific dollar amount of tax owed, or personal income information.

State Availability

- Available in all states
