JK Harris Complaint - Beware of JK Harris! - Settlement of IRS
Settlement of IRS - Complaint
JK Harris "promises" to help you with the IRS. Like a fool, I believed this and after having spent over $5000 for their services, they totally dropped the ball and ignored my calls for information, stating that they had other clients who also needed attention, and that they were short on personnel. They will call you 2-3 times a day before you send them the check to show that they care, but once they get paid.... your on your own!!!!!!!!!! Also they have many different people and departments and locations, and are constantly switching you around and keeping you in a state of confusion as nobody seems to know what is going on, and your eventual caseworker is always "unexpectedly" out of the office.Your caseworker never has a direct line---you always have to leave a message with voice mail as they are never in the office. The only ones who are ever around are the ones in the office who advise you where to send your check for initial payment. Vince (agent in Deerfield Beach) had such great ideas before payment was made, but like a friggin weasel, never answered any call once payment was received.
I almost lost my wages and had an impending levy that JK Harris ignored. The only way that I was able to circumvent the levy was to go to the nearest IRS regional office at the last minute and speak personally to the agent himself. Fortunately he was understanding and agreed to help me. He advised that JK Harris "ADVERTISES IN A DECEPTIVE FASHION AND IS ONLY DOING WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF BY SIMPLY STUDYING THE IRS OFFER IN COMPROMISE WORKSHEET."
The company also charges about 6 times what other companies charge to do the same work.Yet despite this extra fee, they are the worst imaginable. I was finally able to get this mess straightened out by doing my own homework. REMEMBER THAT NO-ONE HAS A VESTED INTEREST IN YOUR WELL-BEING OTHER THAN YOURSELF.Please save yourself a lot of money and grief and either do this yourself(only takes a few hours of your time) or get another company to do it for you.Whether you know it or not, how much you owe in the final analysis depends upon your income and allowable expenses for the next 48 months as well as your assets. JK Harris can not do a darn thing to change this. They only take your info and use it to fill out the forms that the IRS gives them.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: REMEMBER, IF THIS WERE SO DIFFICULT, THEN WHY ARE THERE SO MANY COMPANIES THAT OFFER TO DO THIS FOR AS LITTLE AS $500. Good luck to you and may God bless. Hope this helps...
REMEMBER... JK HARRIS IS A SCAM. PLEASE DO NOT FALL INTO THIS TRAP!!!!!!!!
