"Tax relief" in Chelsea, Alabama can refer to a wide range of subjects. However, it almost always refers to lowering the tax liability, either of an individual, or a group of people.

When a government official or politician talks about "tax relief," they are typically talking about a tax cut, which is a reduction in a particular tax rate.

But, many members of the general public, especially in recent years, associate "tax relief" with businesses or individuals who claim they can lower your tax liability - typically advertising on the Internet or the radio. These advertisements frequently claim that they have proficient lawyers and negotiators who can help you get out of your duty to pay taxes. While many of these organizations are legitimate, and are actually interested in helping their clients, a substantial percentage of "tax relief" organizations in Alabama are scams.

Tax Relief Scams in Chelsea, Alabama

Some con-artists in Chelsea, Alabama say that they have some exceptional technique that permits you to reduce the amount of taxes you're legally obliged to pay, or that they can erase any tax debt that you have incurred.

But you should beware: no honest tax relief business in Chelsea, Alabama will make such promises, because they know it's almost always impossible to deliver on them. Fortunately, there are some features you can look for to help you spot - and avoid - tax relief scammers.

One of the biggest warning signs that one should look for is an indisputable promise that someone can eliminate your tax debt. This is simply not a promise that anyone can honestly make. While the IRS does have programs to advise people who are really unable to pay their back taxes, through no fault of their own, they only apply in the most extreme cases, so the vast majority of taxpayers in Chelsea, Alabama don't qualify for them.

Additionally, you should be wary of anyone promising tax relief, but demands payment immediately, before they truly do anything. Many scammers in Chelsea will convince their victims to pay them upfront, and then simply take the money and run. They may even make additional, unapproved, charges to your credit card or bank account.
