Today as we consume media in little bites here and there, there's so many ways that marketers try to get our attention. Particularly in the tax problem industry, there are so many deceptive ways that companies try to get our attention. You have to wonder - why can't you just say who you are?! Take a run thru Google and the ads placed there - and ask yourself - how many real companies are listed there? Washington Tax Services - our proud company of 25 years - can be reached via watax.com. That's who we are - there's no lead generator sending you to us - no fake website steering you in our direction.

For example - go in to google and type in the keywords: "IRS tax debt relief."

Here's what you might find in the ad section:

freedomtaxrelief.com - a real company - Yay!
supermoney.com - a lead generator for Optima Tax Relief
irs-tax-debt-relief.www.taxhelp.pro/‎ - a lead generator for Tax Defense Network.
optimataxrelief.com - a real company - Yay!
www.irstaxattorneyseattle.com/TaxRelief - a lead generator
www.irs-hitman.com/Tax_Relief‎ -another lead generator for Tax Defense Network.
taxresolutiontalk.com - this very blog - which we clearly state as ours.
taxchampions.com - a lead generator.
www.taxreliefcenter.org/BBB-A+Rated- another lead generator for Tax Defense Network!
www.stopirsdebt.com/‎ - a real company - Yay!
www.premiertaxsolutions.com/ - a real company - Yay!
www.ctctax.com/IRS-Tax-Debt - a real company - Yay!
www.ustaxsolutionsinc.com/oic- a real company - Yay!

Most of the lead generators above - are somewhat recognizable and as you can see - no offense to our friend Tax Defense Network - but they are trying to game the system a bit with three different "lead generators" in one search there.

But let's scrutinize your classic lead generator:

https://usa-tax-relief.com - click on the site - it actually has a BBB record under "Gordon Data" and you will see that they started in 2013. No offense guys - but isn't this disingenuous? Are your trustworthy to solve someone's serious tax problem - devoting 11 months on your client's behalf to solve their issue? If you can't really find where someone is located and there is just mystery surrounding a company - well - aren't you skeptical too?
