Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Delray Credit Counseling announced today that it received IRS approval as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on February 15, 2008. Few companies now receive 501(c)(3) status approval. Only a handful of companies have been approved in the last 18 months.
A troubled economy leads many consumers to seek debt relief. In the past, bankruptcy was the easy answer, but an October 2005 law demands that debtors consult with a credit counselor before they can file a bankruptcy petition. However, the IRS received hundreds of consumer complaints about credit counseling agencies (CCAs) that used their non-profit status to line their pockets with debtor dollars. These complaints prompted the IRS to audit credit counseling agencies nationwide and resulted in many company closures and non-profit status revocations.
As one of the few companies that have maintained its non-profit staus over the last five years, this achievement says something about DCC--its commitment to excellence and the positive ways in which the agency helps consumers.
