Companies listed on TopTaxReliefCompanies.com cannot buy their position and we do not implement a ‘pay-to-play’ ranking strategy like many review sites do — this ensures unbiased rankings.
As a part of our service, we do attempt to partner with the companies that we review and may be compensated when you click or call them from our website. Our rankings may change depending on company quality, customer sentiment, and expert opinion of current company policies.
We don't have any relationships with companies that guarantee position, rank, or score…and we never will. Like many sites, we are compensated through affiliate relationships with each company we review; however, our averaged ranking system ensures we remain honest and unbiased.
Some review sites were given different weights than others, according to trustworthiness of the review sites themselves. Additionally, company scores are also given small penalties or bonuses based on an expert analysis and customer sentiment of company quality.
For example, Community Tax was given an overall score of 9.8 as a result of the following rankings:
- Review Site 1 — 9.0
- Review Site 2 — 9.2
- Review Site 3 — 9.1
- Expert Review Score — 10
- Customer Review Score— 9.4
Each of the three review sites listed is trusted and attempts to rank each company fairly.
Our aggregate score is meant to measure the overall performance of each company and the customer sentiment regarding the companies.
The criteria points are:
- Average Price
- Customer Review Score
- Minimum Debt Requirement
- Percentage of 5-Star Reviews
- Time in Business
