"Tax relief" in Daly City, California can refer to a wide range of subjects. However, it almost exclusively refers to lowering the tax liability, either of an individual, or a group of individuals.

When a politician or other government official uses the term "tax relief," they're mostly frequently talking about tax cuts, or some other actual or recommended government action which would reduce the tax liability of some individuals or corporations.

However, many people associate the phrase "tax relief" with individuals, corporations, or law firms that offer services claiming to reduce or eliminate one's tax liability - getting them out of their requirement to pay the taxes. Most of the time, they'll say that they have experienced negotiators on their staff who can negotiate with the tax collectors in California or the IRS, to lower your tax bill. Some of these businesses are forthright, and have the best interests of their customers in mind. However, many of them are scams.

Tax Relief Scams in Daly City, California

Some con-artists in Daly City, California say that they have some special 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.

However, in most cases, these people have no capacity or intent to advise their "clients," and will simply take the money and run. In order to spot a tax relief scam, there are a few things that residents of Daly City, California can look for.

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 absolute guarantee that they can lower your tax bill. While there are some legal ways to try and reduce your tax requirement, including negotiating with the IRS, there is no guarantee that they will prevail. And although the IRS does have programs to advise people who are really unable to pay for their taxes, they are only available to very small subset of the population, and most Daly City, California taxpayers aren't suitable to participate in them.

Moreover, you need to know that anyone demanding payment before they execute any services in Daly City probably doesn't have your interests in mind. If you pay a scammer up front, they'll likely just run off with your money, and you'll never hear from them again.
