How To Find a Trustworthy Tax Relief Company
If you have made the decision to hire a professional tax company to help with your personal or business income taxes, you want to make sure that the team you hire is a good fit. There is no shortage of tax firms claiming to be able to save you money and solve all of your tax issues, but these are often promises they cannot keep.
So how can you be sure that the company you choose is reputable and will not cause more problems than they solve? Here are some tips for finding a trustworthy tax relief company when you need it:
Be careful of demands or prepayment or payment in full.
A trustworthy business will be comfortable with you paying for the services that they provide as they are received, and will be less likely to ask for payment up front or payment in full early in the process.
Be very careful not to pay a lot of money up front until you are sure that the company is doing their job and meeting your needs. Unfortunately, many individuals end up sinking money into a company that does not have the experience or acumen for the job, which leaves them with even more debt that before.
Ask lots of questions.
Think about how you might hire a new employee in your business or someone doing work on your home? Ask lots of questions:
- How long has your company been in business?
- Can I see a list of customer testimonials?
- What are the names of the owners of the company?
- What is the firm’s track record?
It’s definitely a red flag if the company is not forthcoming with this information. These answers should be simple and easy for them. You also should be able to check their credentials with the Better Business Bureau or a similar agency.
Watch for other red flags.
If the firm puts a significant amount of pressure on you to hire them, then they are likely desperate for business and that is a red flag. Similarly, if the company “guarantees” a certain outcome, you should realize that they may not be communicating truthfully. Nothing in the tax world is simple or guaranteed; so beware if promises are made that sound too good to be true (they probably are!).
There are many tax firms out there that you cannot trust, but there are also many reputable, trustworthy companies with proven track records and a commitment to honest, strong representation.
