Q: What's the difference between a "Tax Relief Company" and a "Tax Law Firm"?
A: You've all seen companies advertise on various media outlets saying they'll settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar, as well as making other promises. They may tell you that you qualify for an Offer in Compromise. In fact, about 80% of OIC cases are rejected and you may forfeit vital taxpayer rights, as well as 20% of the Offer amount up front in just applying for the OIC. By the time you learn that your OIC case has been rejected, the” tax relief company” has already spent your fee AND your 20% check to the IRS will not be returned to you. There is seemingly no standard or regulatory body dictating their statements, claims or actions.
A tax law firm is typically held to a higher standard in all respects in coming through for their clients, including the ethical argument. Tax law firms are regulated by the state bar in the according state, and the attorneys representing the firms clients held to the same regulation. Tax relief companies do not have a homogeneous regulatory entity to hold them accountable for the work they do on behalf of their clients, thus creating no real avenue for client recourse should the clients feel misrepresented.
