Watch out for the Scam Artists

The IRS has come out with several tax bulletins regarding fraudulent tax companies within the past years warning the taxpayers to stay away from scam artists and companies making false claims. You can read about this on the

The Tax Resolution Industry

The tax resolution industry for the most part has been turned over to sales people who have worked 0.there business verticals such as mortgage, real estate and credit relief programs.

When their industry changes because of economic reasons or changes due to the federal law, these companies and sales people are forced to find 0ther business verticals to work.  A large number of these sales people and owners have found their way in IRS Tax Relief and Resolution business and most have no idea what they are doing. This is so sad.

While many of  them are good persons in general, they have no business working an industry they know absolutely nothing about.

Many of these companies are in business today and gone tomorrow and many times with your money.

I cannot tell you how very important that it is that you do your due diligence before choosing a tax company for IRS tax issue or matter before sending your money or credit card to them.


You can avoid many of these problems if you follow this practical common sense advice on choosing a tax relief company for IRS Problem help:


1. Check the Better Business Bureau report on the Company. If the company is not “A” rated, flee. Beware, many of these companies change names every couple of years.

2. Find out if there is a professional Tax Attorney or CPA on staff.

Scam companies will not have Tax  Attorneys and CPA’s. Those professionals usually will not lend their names to scam artists.

Beware of companies  that sub their work out to third party firms that are not connected with the company.


Many of these companies have backend tax firms that will actually do your work. Many problems come up when this happens because communications, notices and letters all get lost in the shuffle.

3. Check out how long the principles have been practicing tax or tax law. Most solid companies will find their principles have been practicing at least ten years or more.

4. Ask if the company guarantees their work.

If a company is guaranteeing their work, flee again. No one can guarantee IRS results. If they guarantee your money will be returned if they are not successful, that’s an0.there story.

5. Interview the person that may work your case. Ask about his or her credentials and IRS work experience. You should get a good gut feeling after speaking to the person that will work your case.

6.  Skype the person face to face. Ask if the person has a video conferencing system. You will get a good feel with a face to face.

7. Google the actual company that will be receiving your money and spend about 10 the 15 minutes checking out their site. A good tax firm will have a solid website which will include bios, press releases, blog pages and articles from IRS Experts from their firm.

8. Many of these companies will have videos on their website so you can hear the actual professionals of the firm explained the tax relief process and  how IRS will interact with you the taxpayer.

9. Carefully check out the retainer engagement to find out if there are any hidden fees. Most professional tax companies doing this type of work will give you a flat fee for working IRS problem help cases.

10. As a last tip to all taxpayers, if you owe IRS back taxes make sure you file all your tax returns and become current. If you not do this IRS will choose to not cooperate with you.


I tell you all these things because I’m a former IRS agent and manager. I have been in this business for the last 38 years.
