When selecting a firm, remember that these are the people who will represent you and your family before the IRS. People have to know what to look for – they can’t afford not to.
Encino, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Recent tax problem resolution media coverage has been heavily focused on stories of unscrupulous delinquent tax debt representation providers hit with unfair and deceptive advertising claims, leaving consumers fearful of where to go to get help with their IRS problems. To address this situation, ethical tax resolution professionals (CPAs, tax attorneys, enrolled agents, certified tax resolution specialists) are banding together through a coalition to protect consumers, while enlightening the media as well.
Michael Rozbruch, Founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, Co., leads one of the most reputable firms in the industry and is a founding member of the tax problem resolution services coalition. For years, he has been committed to educating consumers so they know the value of having advocates on their side to settle IRS problems. “The tax debt relief industry has seen dramatic growth over the past 5 years,” says Rozbruch, “but many of these so-called tax resolution firms have been making headlines for misleading consumers with deceptive advertising and false claims that they can settle taxpayers' debt. As these firms are being shut down or challenged, consumers still need to know that there are great tax help options out there – people just need to do their homework and know what to look for before they engage a firm.”
Consumers can feel overwhelmed when having to choose from the large number of companies that offer tax relief assistance. They can take the stress of the IRS off their minds by remembering a few simple points. Brian Compton, President of Tax Resolution Services, Co., says, “When selecting a firm, remember that these are the people who will represent you and your family before the IRS. People have to know what to look for – they can’t afford not to. I guide people to my website, particularly an article on How to Hire a Tax Resolution Company. While any Tax Attorney, CPA or Enrolled Agent can represent clients before the IRS, few are truly qualified to provide the knowledge, experience and negotiating skills needed to successfully represent a taxpayer before the IRS.”
In addition to the tips by ethical tax resolution service professionals and articles like How to Hire a Tax Resolution Company, Rozbruch advises consumers to “Google a company’s name, Google the founder’s names and check BBB ratings.” He also urges consumers to check if a potential tax relief company or professional is a member of the Tax Problem Resolution Services Coalition as “these professionals promote and ensure the protection of taxpayers from unfair and deceptive advertising claims by unscrupulous delinquent tax debt representation providers.”
Despite some negative press on some of the bad “apples” in the tax problem resolution industry, consumers and the media need to know that there are great tax resolution professionals out there. The value of having experts on your side who are well versed in tax law and IRS procedures can make all the difference as IRS representation is a complicated field with many twists and turns and different laws can be interpreted in many ways.
While any Tax Attorney, CPA or Enrolled Agent can represent clients before the IRS, finding the truly qualified to provide the knowledge, experience and negotiating skills needed to successfully represent a taxpayer before the IRS requires some education and effort.
