NATDRC Conference to Address Ways to Eliminate Fraudulent Lead Aggregators First official meeting of the National Association of Tax Debt Resolution Companies prioritizes regulation of companies using deceptive advertising.
In the unsecured debt (credit card, medical, etc.) settlement industry anyone can proclaim expertise as long as they have a phone and a persuasive voice. There are no experience, education, licensure or registration requirements. This “work” can be done without having graduated high school, and these firms are now trolling for unsuspecting consumers in the tax problem resolution industry. Scary.
To be lawful and credible, tax problem resolution firms must employ the only three types of individuals in the world who are allowed to represent clients before the IRS. You either must be a CPA, an attorney, or an Enrolled Agent in good standing with your respective licensing/governing body.
Hundreds of these former disreputable firms are now holding themselves out as “experts” in the tax debt resolution arena. They don’t do the work, instead farming it out, for a handsome fee, to others who will. This and the much publicized demise of the other large nationally marketed firms such as Roni Lynn Deutch (“the Tax Lady”), J. K. Harris, and TaxMasters have given the credible tax problem resolution firms a huge black eye.
That’s why the National Association of Tax Debt Resolution Companies (NATDRC) is aggressively promoting federal and state legislation to make it illegal for tax debt resolution firms to affiliate and join up with a lead aggregator. It would also prohibit lead aggregators themselves to solicit/market to both tax problem resolution practitioners and the end-consumer.
Anyone or any firm offering services concerning tax problem resolution must be the responsible and qualified person to do so. This includes being able to place their own name(s) on IRS Form 2848, Power of Attorney. Only a CPA, attorney, or Enrolled Agent can sign this and be authorized as the taxpayer’s representative.
