Between itemized deductions, multiple W-2s and the threat of owing the IRS money, many Americans seek the help of qualified tax professional to help. However, tax time is prime time for tax scams that can quickly victimize the unsuspecting taxpayer.

Tax debt is serious business and while the IRS is committed to collecting on what is owed, taxpayers should be warned that owing the IRS money isn’t half a serious as committing tax fraud.  Before getting sucked into a scam, watch out for these warning signs of a potential scam:

  • Unlicensed employees, staff that are not a certified public accountants or tax lawyers.
  • Requiring payment for their services up front or do not offer money back guarantees.
  • Request direct access to your bank accounts or offer to pay tax debts on your behalf.
  • Failure to offer tax audit protection or guarantees.
