Cold Calling Tax Liens - 941 -- One of two new companies claims to be the Private Taxpayer’s Advocate Service

Add two new cold callers to the list of people who telemarket to people and businesses who have TAX LIENS against them:

Safe Harbor Financial based out of Chicago https://safeharborfc.com/ according to BBB record started in September 2009: BBB record

and yes another company in Colorado: SLS Financial Solutions: http://www.slsfinancialsolutions.com/ according to BBB starting in July 2009: BBB record

One of my clients was told by Safe Harbor that they are the "private" Taxpayer's Advocate service. And no not the IRS: http://www.irs.gov/advocate/ He was told by the telemarketer: that he "came across his file" and thought he would give him a call about his tax case. I will say this is a really effective and clever sales tactic. But I wonder if he should tone down the "Taxpayer Advocate" part of sales pitch?

Nonetheless, keep your eyes and ears out for telemarketers. While their BBB records are impeccable for now: some important clues are

1. Are they overcharging you?

2. Are licensed tax professionals available? Do you know their names?

3. What role with the telemarketer play in the resolution of the case? Who will be accountable?
