"Tax relief" in Leeds, 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 normally 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 - normally advertising on the Internet or the radio. These advertisements commonly 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 considerable percentage of "tax relief" organizations in Alabama are scams.

Tax Relief Scams in Leeds, Alabama

Scammers in Leeds, Alabama often claim that they can employ some distinct method enabling you pay the IRS less than you really owe, or even erase your tax debt.

But buyer beware: these scammers in Leeds, Alabama, and elsewhere, cannot possibly deliver on their promises, and they know it. Fortunately, most tax relief scams have a few common factors that can give them away to vigilant consumers.

There is one warning sign that virtually guarantees that the tax relief company you're dealing with intends to defraud you: if they make an indisputable guarantee that they can lower your tax bill. While there are some legal ways to try and reduce your tax obligation, including negotiating with the IRS, there is no guarantee that they will succeed. And although the IRS does have programs to help people who are absolutely unable to pay for their taxes, they are only available to very small subset of the population, and most Leeds, Alabama taxpayers aren't qualified to participate in them.

Another red flag to look for is a demand of a large up-front payment. Many tax relief scammers in Leeds will not even pretend to try and assist you. Rather, they simply take the money and disappear, sometimes after making additional, and unapproved, charges to your credit card or withdrawals from your bank account.
