Millions of American taxpayers seek help for resolution of tax problems from tax relief specialists. But many times taxpayers get into deeper trouble with the IRS because they hire fraudulent tax relief specialists, thinking them legitimate and authentic. All scam tax services use every trick in the book to attract taxpayers into hiring their services. Some of the methods they use to lure taxpayers into hiring their services are discussed below.
All scam tax relief specialists charge a bloated upfront fee. You can be sure that any tax service that charges an unreasonable amount before it has provided any service is only after money. Usually, taxpayers willingly pay more to scam services because the scam services promise them substantial reduction in their tax debt, sometimes even to zero. Taxpayers readily pay the scam companies thousands of dollars as upfront fee because they feel they will get a substantial tax debt reduction in exchange. It seems like a good bargain to them.
It is through false advertising that fraudulent tax relief specialists promise and convince taxpayers that they can get their tax debt reduced. Any tax relief service that makes promises without knowing the particulars of your case cannot be trusted.
Another pointer that taxpayers may use to spot fraudulent tax relief services is to make inquiries into their staff, company history, fees structure and consumer complaints. If the company is fraudulent, it will discourage inquiries.
Taxpayers can protect themselves from scam tax services by spotting inconsistencies in what they say and what they do. Proper research and inquiry can help in getting to the truth about the reliability of tax relief specialists.
