Taxpayers with IRS problems are being cold-called or are receiving letters from companies urgently seeking contact and promising that your tax problems can be easily resolved. Some companies are being creative, sending out letters to taxpayers that contain personal information which often mimic official IRS letters. Companies gain access to personal information due to a tax lien being filed by the IRS.
Another nationwide firm bites the dust
JK Harris, a nationally advertised tax resolution firm, recently filed for federal bankruptcy protection and has ceased business operations. JK Harris was forced into bankruptcy due to legal action taken by Attorney Generals from several states. Thousands of taxpayers may be left helpless and without proper representation. JK Harris is the third nationwide firm to have ceased operations due to unfair business practices involving consumers in several states.
