HIRING THE RIGHT POWER OF ATTORNEY TO RESOLVE BACK TAX ISSUES

 

Here are some questions you should ask when considering who to hire to represent you or your business when dealing with tax issues:

  1. Is the person you are contacting the person who will be actually representing you? Many companies use salespeople who tell you what you want to hear and hand your case over to someone else after you hire them, where you are told a different story.  Ask if you can communicate directly with the person who will be handling your case directly with the IRS. 
  2. Look at the number of Better Business Bureau complaints.  It is true that anyone in business long enough, especially in today's age where anyone can write a defamatory post regardless if true or not, will have a complaint or two and that's fine as it's inevitable to happen for a variety of reasons, but consider if they have multiple complaints, especially if they are recent complaints.
  3. Is a company calling you after a notice of tax lien has been filed? If so, it would be wise to avoid these telemarketing fast talkers.  In the legal field these firms are called ambulance chasers and are frowned upon for good reason.  Thankfully the IRS has made recent changes making it easier to have a federal tax lien removed as if it never existed if your case is handled appropriately. 

Contact me and I will review your case with you, explaining what to expect in the process of resolving your tax issue. 

 


"Ms. X, we are calling regarding a federal tax lien filed against you (or your business) are you aware of that?" 

"Yes, I am."

"Well Ms. X (in pleasant "soft" voice, usually female) I am with Muddy Waters Financial, and we specialize in helping people resolve their back taxes.  How much is the IRS claiming you owe?"

"Around X amount."

"OK, hold on for me, we can help."

{Transfers you to the "closer" for a hard sell}

"Hello Ms. X, my name is Seth Gideon, I am a senior consultant here at Muddy Waters Financial. We have been in business since Aramaic was still a spoken language, hire us and all the penalty and interest will stop immediately.  If you don't the IRS will levy your bank account!" ...
