How to Avoid IRS Debt Relief Scams

May 10th

How would you like to be able to lower or eliminate your tax debt payments – guaranteed? For those Americans struggling to pay back IRS debt, this offer is mighty appealing. As the IRS continues increasing enforcement, more and more companies across the country are claiming they can help you reach a tax resolution. But beware! Con artists who only want to steal your money and your personal information run many of these companies offering tax debt relief solutions! To avoid losing hard earned money and compromising identity, taxpayers must be careful when selecting IRS debt relief programs.

How to Find Legitimate Tax Debt Solutions

Whether you decide to trust a tax debt lawyer or work with an IRS debt relief program, keeping these tips in mind will ensure that you’re working with a legitimate organization. By proactively protecting yourself, you’re more likely to avoid tax debt scams and pay back what you owe without further headache. To avoid IRS debt relief scams:

Be cautious of tax firms that exaggerate their success rate. With the internet, it’s easier than ever for tax firms to overstate their qualifications or even the success rate that they’ve had with previous clients. How can you tell if a tax firm isn’t telling the truth about their qualifications? Simple: be sure to always seek help from a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist firm. These agencies put prospective clients through a series of tests to determine whether they even qualify for an IRS tax settlement. Many scams will accept all clients even if they don’t qualify.
Know what questions to ask. Ask how long the firm and tax attorney have been in practice and working to resolve IRS debt. Feel free to ask how many attorneys are on staff as well as the firm’s success rate with their IRS debt cases. One of the key questions is asking whether or not they have a guarantee. Since tax debt deals with a 3rd party – the IRS – results can never be guaranteed, so run away as quickly as you can from a source that guarantees IRS debt solutions.
Hire a firm that works for you. Certified Tax Resolution Specialists should work on a plan that fits your tax debt case, not try to make you go a certain route. Furthermore, ensure they’re responsive to your communication.
