Looking for IRS Tax Help? Consumer Affairs Warns Against Firms That Overstate Ability to Reduce Tax Debts
In tough economic times, it’s especially important to not ignore IRS problems. And taxpayers must realize that they have to be careful in choosing a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist or tax attorney to resolve their back taxes and IRS problems.
With more Americans than ever needing IRS help, the tax resolution industry has seen dramatic growth and many companies have entered the arena to offer help to those impacted by both financial challenges and a sharp increase in IRS tax compliance enforcement.
According to Consumer Affairs, it’s not uncommon for firms to misrepresent their ability to provide tax help. In some instances, companies will misrepresent their staff’s professional skills and experience in addition to failing to provide promised services. It’s important for Americans to beware of tax relief firms that overstate their ability to reduce IRS debt. In fact, I would RUN if a company “guarantees” specific results or asks for large, prepaid fees up front.
Before you hire a tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist, here are some other questions to ask before hiring tax help. As a savvy taxpayer in need of tax resolution, you need to make sure that your tax attorney will be responsible and responsive to your needs. If you are dealing with a tax resolution firm that is more concerned about when and how quickly you can pay them instead of how to best provide you with tax help, you need to get out now.
Ethical tax resolution companies are upfront with their clients so they understand the process for resolving tax debt and have realistic expectation for solving their specific tax problem. Because the IRS has very strict guidelines governing eligibility, we let our clients know up front whether these are viable settlement options for resolving their specific IRS problems.
