How To Avoid A Potential Tax Scam
Tax Preparation Fraud
An unscrupulous tax preparation consultant will steal your identity, over charge the client, and/or claim unnecessary credits. This can cost you thousands of dollars in fees from the IRS and possible jail time. The government is putting much tougher sanctions on tax consultants that commit fraud including jail time. To avoid this situation you should check the credentials of any person that you use to prepare your taxes. They should have a good rating with the Better Business Bureau and be licensed and certified. In fact, avoid online tax preparation if you can’t find them listed as an IRS approved tax consultant. Best of all, Leaf says consumers should use an advertised tax consultant that has a strong reputation with the community. Big name tax consultants may have higher fees, but they have a policy that entitles customers assistance during a tax audit or a mistake on their taxes.
Finally, Ian Leaf says, many people try to file their own taxes and commit fraud by over claiming on their taxes. Numerous of people claim dependents that aren’t a part of their household by claiming someone’a children. When this type of fraud is committed the individual is subjected to stiff penalties, taken through an audit, and possibly barred from filing their taxes the following year.
