Optima Tax Relief makes the Orange County Register Top Workplaces List for the Sixth Consecutive Year

Optima Tax Relief is proud to announce that it has been on the Orange County Register Top Workplaces for the sixth year in a row. The announcement represents the ongoing efforts Optima has put toward its employees in order to create a strong company culture and positive work environment.

Employee satisfaction was measured through anonymous third-party surveys that went out to all Optima employees. The feedback received was overwhelmingly positive despite the challenges Optima faced early on when the company had to shift from employees working in the office to working from home.

Employees have always been Optima’s top priority.  During a turbulent year, the company has made an even greater effort to stay connected with their employees while maximizing safety by hosting virtual events designed to boost morale among their staff.

105 companies were selected to make the Orange County Top Workplace list, a testament to how exclusive a club the list is.  You can find the full list of winners on the Orange County Register.

Optima Tax Relief provides assistance to individuals struggling with unmanageable IRS tax burdens. To assess your tax situation and determine if you qualify for tax relief, contact us for a free consultation.

Optima Tax Relief’s Endorsers

Optima has been fortunate to have been endorsed by many prominent personalities from a wide range of backgrounds, including:  

Mark Levin

Host of the radio program The Mark Levin Show, Levin is a lawyer, author, and former Reagan Administration staffer (serving in the Department of Education and the Department of the Interior before becoming chief of staff for Attorney General Edwin Meese). In addition to his nationally syndicated radio show, Levin also hosts the Fox News TV show Life, Liberty & Levin.

Darrell Ward

Darrell Ward was already a well-established and successful professional trucker when the producers of the hit TV show Ice Road Truckers asked him to join the cast. Living by his motto of “Any road, any load,” Darrell quickly became a fan favorite, displaying a wonderful heart and an infectious zeal for life as he tackled everything the frozen, forbidding roads threw at him. But when a real-life IRS problem threatened to derail him, Darrell turned to Optima. “Thirty-two years of driving deadly roads has taught me that experience matters,” said Darrell. “Icy roads, white outs, I can handle that. Negotiating with the IRS… I didn’t want to tackle that on my own. I wanted to have the best tax professionals on my case. That’s why I hired Optima.”

Rush Limbaugh

Best known as the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh has long been one of the most-listened-to radio personalities in the U.S. Launching his show nationally in 1988, he commands a weekly audience of over 15 million listeners and has been inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the Radio Hall of Fame.   

Alan Thicke

Optima is forever grateful to the late, great Alan Thicke. As our first national spokesman, Alan’s grace, integrity, and compassion made him the perfect fit, reflecting the core values Optima was founded upon. In addition to being our spokesmen par excellence, Alan also wrote our company’s theme song – a song proudly featured in our commercials to this day. A true gentleman in every sense of the word, Alan is forever loved and greatly missed by us, here at Optima.

Optima Tax Relief Helps Foster Children have a Very Merry Christmas

Optima Tax Relief, LLC teamed up with the Orangewood Children’s Foundation to sort and organize
hundreds of gift donations for the holiday season.

January 9, 2012–In December, Optima Tax Relief, LLC teamed up with the Orangewood Children’s Foundation and assisted with sorting and organizing gift donations for the holiday season.

Many members of Optima’s staff volunteered to help sort through hundreds of donations ranging from
kid’s toys to clothing and shoes. Some helped unload truckloads full of donated bikes and other gift
donations while others worked with Orangewood to fulfill personalized wish lists for families in need.
Volunteers also had a chance to bake cookies and chili for the foster youth.

In a letter from the Orangewood Children’s Foundation, Chief Executive Officer, Cal Winslow says, “Your
commitment to helping us provide for the needs of children, youth and families in our community is
very much appreciated.”

This is the first year Optima has participated in a volunteer event and although volunteering was
optional, employee participation was very high. Optima also made a monetary contribution to the
Orangewood Children’s Foundation and plans on finding additional ways to give back to the community
with participating in similar events each year.

“Here at Optima Tax Relief, we understand the importance of giving back to the Community where we
can. We are very proud to be a part of such an important mission and look forward to working with
Orangewood Foundation again,” says Harry Langenberg, one of the Managing Partners of Optima Tax

The Orangewood Children’s Foundation’s goal is to help eliminate the neglect and abuse of children in
Orange County, California. The foundation works to accomplish this on four main fronts: strengthening
families to prevent abuse from occurring in the first place, protecting children from abusive homes from
physical and emotional violence, emancipating teens from abusive families, and promoting enhanced
public awareness of the challenges faced by children raised in such damaging environments. This last
goal has been the area in which important partners like Optima Tax Relief have been able to do the most
good for the foundation’s kids.
