Companies That Repair Credit Launches with Essential Information on Repairing Credit and Managing Finances

(PRWEB) June 16, 2013

Credit repair companies work to assist individuals repair and improve their credit rating. Companies That Repair Credit was founded and launched to help people with informative articles on fixing and maintaining a good credit score, along with locating and hiring a firm specializing in credit repair.

Consumers have the ability to contest and correct items on their credit scores for themselves, but it can be a long and tedious process. Credit repair companies are cognizant of the latest rules, regulations and procedures governing credit repair and can significantly reduce the time it takes to make changes.

Financial institutions, vehicle dealerships and landlords all utilize credit scores to determine which applicants represent the least credit risk. A FICO credit score of 550 or below is considered a risk, while a score of 750 and over is rated excellent. Low credit scores can prevent individuals from obtaining employment, renting a home or starting a business.

Many consider their credit score a mystical number arrived at by nothing less than arcane methods. In reality, a credit score is the end result of a mathematical formula used to determine a persons ability to repay debt. Credit scores are calculated by a combination of factors that include income, current debt, employment history and other elements.

Companies that repair credit are comprised of professionals with extensive experience in the credit industry. They work with individuals to repair their credit with all three of the credit reporting agencies Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. The three agencies dont share information, making it critical to examine and repair each report individually.

Correcting errors on a credit report will have a major impact on a consumers borrowing power and future financial endeavors. Its important to exercise due diligence when selecting the right agency to repair credit problems. Credit reports can be repaired to accurately reflect debt, which in turn will increase credit scores. Only time and responsible management of income and debt will restore credit to pristine order.

Companies That Repair Credit also provides consumers with information on debt counseling services, debt consolidation and credit advisers. Debt consolidation firms negotiate payback arrangements to debtors and can help reduce the amount owed. Counseling services work with individuals to show them ways to be more financially responsible and take control of their financial health. Credit advisers can dispute any errors on credit reports and counsel clients on how to repair their credit.

The newly launched Companies That Repair Credit provides consumers with a comprehensive look at credit repair agencies, debt counselors and consolidation firms. The site offers consumers valuable information on the importance of a good credit score and the advantages of enlisting the services of a professional credit repair agency.

Platinum Tax Defenders and Sherri Gastelum Reduce Tax Bills to $100

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 14, 2013

Many companies and websites, no matter what the industry, can claim to get results for clients that never actually happen. Sometimes, taxpayers with real tax bill issues are unable to get the tax relief that they need, or are turned off of the very idea of tax resolution firms, because of news reports. On April 16, 2013, the Boston Globe warned taxpayers about tax resolution firms: If You Owe Taxes, Beware of Debt-Aid Firms (bostonglobe.com/business/2013/04/16/you-owe-taxes-irs-there-few-free-ways-get-help/aDXXmfAuG9Vf8JlWW888VL/story.html). While Sherri Gastelum (President of Platinum Tax Defenders) acknowledges that warnings against unethical behavior toward taxpayers is certainly warranted, Platinum Tax Defenders was really able to reduce tax bills for many clients down to $ 100, via Offers in Compromise.

It’s not hard to look for examples of taxpayers losing out, either in finances or business, because of assertions that just weren’t true. The IRS has recently gotten into a great deal of trouble for specifically targeting groups requesting tax-exemption status, according to many more reports than the May 17, 2013 article by US News: IRS Targeting Scandal Rooted in Campaign-Finance Politics (http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/05/17/irs-targeting-scandal-rooted-in-campaign-finance-politics). Proof of help must be shown by action rather than words, in any industry.

The April 16, 2013 Boston Globe article does have some helpful information. One, that it’s not uncommon for Americans to owe money, though numbers may be higher than the Boston Globe’s assertion of one in six taxpayers, says Sherri Gastelum. Second, estimated payments are often a sticky point for business owners, due to cashflow issues. Third, it’s true that fear makes many taxpayers sit on IRS letters and hope that the issue of payment is in error, or just goes away, which can be the worst strategy in dealing with unpaid payment or unfiled tax returns. Fourth, blind faith is almost never a great strategy, in business or government dealings.

Although the Boston Globe article doesn’t mention good examples of a tax relief company (or tax resolution services), Sherri Gastelum says that that doesn’t mean there aren’t any good companies willing to help clients save on overly large tax bills – though it never hurts to be cautious. She offers recent examples of real Platinum Tax Defender clients who settle their tax bills of varying amounts and to read about these success stories visit the website at http://tax-resolution.me. It’s really not about the amount of the bill, it’s more about what is best for the client to get tax relief by settling for an affordable amount, so that they can move on with their lives.

Sherri Gastelum is President of both Platinum Tax Defenders and the Simi Valley chapter of the National Association of Professional Women. Though she started the company, she and Attorney Dustin Wetton operate with a team of professionals with at least 10 years of experience, to get tax relief for their clients. On the team are completely qualified CPA’s, an IRS tax attorney, and Enrolled Agents. Sherri is also a board member of The Entrepreneurial Institute, and Dustin Wetton has a J.D. from San Diego’s California Western School of Law, along with an international relations degree.
