Legitimate Tax Debt Relief

April 4th

After much attention swarmed over the court troubles of TaxMasters last week, many consumers are left questioning the legitimacy of tax debt relief services. Although TaxMasters is in trouble for mismanaging funds and allegedly scamming customers, there are plenty of reputable tax debt relief services available. The trick is knowing what to look for and how to go about resolving your tax debts.

Finding The Right Help

TaxMasters was a key player for many years, providing one of the largest scaled tax debt relief operations in their area. Even though they advertised heavily on radio and television, consumers should not be automatically turned off by a company that has similar means of communicating with potential customers. The trouble most people encounter when attempting to resolve their debts is a lack of knowledge about their options.

Consumers should know that back taxes can be resolved directly with the IRS. There may not be a need to use the services of a third party company, but if additional help is desired consumers should consult with a tax attorney before deciding on how to proceed. Further, the programs offered by the IRS may also be claimed by certain third party companies. An Offer In Compromise or an installment plan is only legitimate if it is approved by the IRS. Anyone looking into one of these programs should ensure they always obtain written approval directly from the IRS and never assume a deal is negotiated on their behalf. Lastly, consumers should get to know the IRS better. Their website is full of helpful information that can better educate consumers about general tax information, laws and even ways to lower their tax liability.
