As someone struggling with tax resolution, finding the right tax professional to help you with your situation can be challenging. With a lot of confusing information and false promises out there, how can you be sure you’re hiring a qualified and reliable tax resolution specialist? If you’re looking for expert advice, look no further than this article where we provide a comprehensive guide on how to avoid tax resolution company rip-offs. Keep reading to discover the four most common scams and what you should look for in a reputable tax resolution specialist.
First on the list of scams is overpromising results. If a tax resolution specialist guarantees to settle your tax debt for a specific amount through an offer in compromise or promises a certain monthly payment amount off the bat, be very wary. A reputable firm will conduct a thorough analysis of your case before agreeing to take you on as a client to determine the most likely outcome based on their historical experience with cases like yours.
The second scam is the bait and switch tactic. Some firms will quote low fees for a particular service just to get you in the door, then inform you of additional services needed, and charge more to complete your case. On the other hand, most reputable tax resolution specialists work on a fixed or flat fee basis, so you’ll know what you’re paying upfront to achieve permanent resolution.
The third scam is the salesperson versus licensed professional issue. Only a CPA, Enrolled Agent, or an Attorney can represent you before the IRS. Ensure that you’re only speaking with a licensed professional who is also a tax resolution specialist regarding your situation and possible remedies.
Lastly, beware of firms requiring you to pay the entire amount of the fee upfront. A reputable tax resolution specialist will typically require a reasonable deposit to start your case and allow you to pay them over time in fixed monthly payments that fit your budget.
In summary, don’t let the complexities of tax resolution get the best of you. With the help of a reputable tax resolution specialist, you can put your worries to rest and focus on getting your financial life back on track.
