Unfortunately there are companies out there that are not authentic and are waiting to take advantage of you at the first opportunity. However, there are ways to recognize them and red flags to be aware of.
1) Up-front Payments That Are Non-refundable With No Guarantees.
All they want is that initial payment from you and they will reel you in with big promises that they have no way of guaranteeing. They are more focused on acquiring the up-front payment than actually helping the client. A company that asks for a very large payment up front, may not have your best interests in mind.
2) Misrepresenting The Potential Outcome.
Similarly, these companies will lure you in with their success stories about how they abolished debts and obtained Offer in Compromise Settlements for their clients. The truth is that most people will not qualify for Offer in Compromise and this piece of information should be no secret to the client from the start. There are different factors that determine who may qualify but these companies will lead you to believe that it is most surely possible. When they have led you far enough they will place all blame on the IRS for not approving it.
3) Marketing Agencies Impersonating Tax Service Providers.
Some companies seem to be reputable tax service providers when really they are just a marketing agency in disguise. They lead you to believe that they are professionals when really they are just selling your information to other services. They have no way of knowing the qualifications of the company they are referring you to or if they can even assist you at all.
4) Outright Fraud.
The sad truth is the growing number of fraud firms that will outright cheat and steal from their clients. A company may enroll as many clients as possible and collect payment without providing proper service. They may not even send the proper paperwork to the IRS and will provide no refunds, furthering a client's debt. They may open up again under different names so as to hide from any bad reviews received.
Protect yourself by being fully aware of these scams and asking the right questions. A reputable company will be honest about these key points from the start.
