Tax debt cases can be simple or complex. Simple tax debt cases are those that do not involve negotiation with the IRS and do not require qualifying for a tax debt payment plan. Complex tax debt cases, on the other hand, are those that require preparation, representation and negotiation to reach a successful resolution. Complex tax debt cases may involve tax fraud, tax evasion, tax debt reduction, forgiveness or reduction in penalties, and postponement of tax debt.
When seeking help to resolve complex tax debt cases, you must look for a legitimate and competent tax service. It is advisable to use a tax resolution service that has handled tax debt cases similar to yours. Most tax resolution services offer free consultation; this is a good opportunity to find out more about the staff, services and the resolution options available to you.
Because there are a few fraudulent tax resolution companies out there, it has become necessary to research the reputation and authenticity of a tax resolution service before you choose to hire one. A quick investigation into the company’s location, staff members and cases resolved can help determine its authenticity.
Any company that promises results that are too good to be true will not provide genuine help. Certain fraudulent tax resolution companies used “pennies on the dollar” offers to lure taxpayers into hiring their services. A legitimate company will provide facts and give you realistic expectations of what they can achieve for you. When seeking help for tax debt resolution, research well before deciding to hire.
