Are you looking for help with your tax debt problem? Here are a few tips for avoiding dishonest tax companies:
- Guaranteed results. Nobody can guarantee results with the IRS. Logically, this would mean that the people making this type of promise is able to bind the IRS. Common sense should tell you that the IRS is not bound to reach a certain result. Congress has purposely given the IRS lots of discretion with respect to most outcomes in taxpayer resolution matters.
- Large Upfront Fees. Attorneys and other tax professionals expect to be paid for their time, but let’s be realistic. Some fees range upwards of $10,000 for relatively routine tax matters. This is exorbitant. Find a professional who charges reasonable fees and does not demand a huge amount upfront — or try SettleMyTax for the most cost effective way of ensuring you get the best result with the IRS.
- Sales People. If you call a tax company and get a sales person who tries to “close the deal” with you, hang up and walk away. No self-respecting attorney or tax professional would allow a salesperson to close a deal on their behalf.
