JK Harris
United States
My wife and I are engineers and worked as independent contractors in the early 2000's for the electric company. We ended up losing our contracts at the same time and ended up having to live off our savings. My wife finally started working again in several years after we relocated to California. Long story short she starts being garnished and letters start coming in the mail that we owed $80, 000 to the IRS!!! So we called up JK Harris after seeing a commercial... THEY DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I'm serious. Other than require $600 per month for over two years from the both of us (thinking we we're getting an Offer in Compromise) We come to find out after continuing to be garnished and harassed by the IRS that they never even filed for any paper work other than a Power of Attorney two years prior. JK HARRIS WILL STRING YOU ALONG JUST TO DRAIN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT MONTH AFTER MONTH!! I finally got some help from US Tax Liberty; all i needed to do was file my returns for the past several years (we didn't file since the loss of our contracts... didn't think we had too without an income) and then they set us up on an installment agreement for what we did owe from pulling out of our annuity without pre-paying the taxes on it(only ended up owing 15 grand). Dave ((949)999-3308) was our rep at US Tax Liberty and in hindsight it was obvious not to use Jk Harris by just comparing one conversation with Dave and one with that horrible guy from JK, who only told us what we wanted to hear so he could get our money. JK Harris is 100% the BIGGEST SCAM you could ever be apart of. They will tell you they can perform miracles when it is really all LIES!! I'm telling you, if you go to them you WILL get Ripped OFF!!

If you think you might need JK Harris, you definitely do not need them. They are a sham with contract representatives in most major cities. These guys meet with you, get you to sign up for as much they can get you to agree to and then you never deal with the "salesman" again. He gets his cut and goes to the next sucker in line.

Then you are stuck in nameless faceless voicemail ***, where you are admonished about leaving multiple voicemails, which is their way of letting you know up front they are not calling you back. I only got returns prepared by calling and leaving a message that I was from the atty gen of illinois calling regarding complaints filed by me.

I contacted JK Harris in 2009 to help me reduce my tax debt. I didnt file for 2000-2004. Apparently the IRS will file for you if you dont. So the IRS told me I owed 20k in back taxes and had started garnishing my pay.

At JK Harris they told me based on my hardship and financial situation I was qualified for an Offer In Compromise and would only have to pay the IRS 1, 000. LIES!!! I paid them 2, 200 up front so they could file a Power of Attorney and stop the garnishment and 1, 200 a month for the next 3 months would be my total fees for the POA and the OIC. The garnishments stopped--- for 3 months.

I called in to see why and they told me my OIC was rejected and there was nothing they could do for me. Then they told me that I was not entitled to a refund because there is no guarantee for the outcome and the money I paid them was for their services which they performed!! COMPLETE BS!!! THEY DID NOTHING FOR ME AND TOOK 5, 800 FROM ME!!! About 6 months ago after searching for some sort of solution to my taxes and came across settlewiththeirs.info.

According to them OIC is not even a legitimate way to reduce your tax debt unless the IRS determines that you have no way of repaying the debt i.e. on your death bed with no job or assets. But they did a Tax Investigation for free and got back to me with the results the next day. It turns out that I was not entitled to an OIC like they stated earlier, but they said they could reduce most of the interest and penalties on my debt and stop the garnishment indefinitely.

I have 12 months left of 250 a month back to the IRS then I will be done with this tax debt FOREVER! And they were about 2 grand less than JK Harris. Moral of the Story: If it sounds too good to be true then it is! Stay away from JK Harris. I am filling a complaint to the Attorney General, The BBB and my Governor! I suggest that you all do the same!

They take advantage of people in a time of need, They claim they want to help people with there tax problems but at what cost ? I gave them over six thousand dollars and they did nothing for me that i could not have done myself, Then had the nerve to say i needed a new contract so they could finish what they started. I was told when i signed the first contract that they would take care of everything for that amount, THEY DO NOT DO WHAT THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO DO .

I went through the whole initial consultation with JK, meeting in person and all that jazz. The next step according to the “tax professional” was to pay an extraordinary amount of money up front before any sort of work had even been done. If I hardly knew what my situation was, how could they require me to pay a huge amount of money before they even did a little research into my situation? Needless to say, this really put me off.
I did not commit on the spot as I am very wary of financial companies I see advertised on TV. (Previous experiences). So I decided to research any complaints from JK. If it wasn’t for Complaints Board I would have probably gone through the same experience as everyone else here. The web is our greatest defense against scam companies.
Now I still had to deal with my tax problem at hand and I know absolutely nothing of tax laws. So I went with a suggestion from a close friend that went through a similar situation. Their experience with the Tax Relief Foundation was a very good one. Now I know this is not the arena to boast about their performance (I will save that for some place for positive reviews) Needless to say my experience was exceptional as well. They also conduct a full tax investigation before they decide on an amount that’s fair. I am just so happy that I caught these comments on JK before making a huge mistake. For now on I will always ask someone I trust for a recommendation, even if its just to order pizza delivery for the night.

In August 2010 I paid jk harris to review and FILE my tax returns for 08' and 09. I paid $1650.00. They contacted me in December of 2010 and stated that the IRS was going to Levy my accounts because I did not report a death benefit check. I contacted the IRS and learned that NOT ONLY had jk harris done NOTHING, but that the death benefit check was NEVER at issue since my husband was a Federal Employee, and taxes are not owed on those death benefits. After learning all of this, I contacted JK Harris to request a refund. The refund request for the entire amount of $1650.00 was refused since jk harris had "looked into my IRS issues"

JK HARRIS and Co. Is A Scam. I intend on pursuing charges against them.

We hired JK Harris in Dallas, Texas. They took over 1, 600 from us. We waited and felt relieved it would all be over soon. We then received a notice that the IRS was going to garnish my husbands wages. I called JK Harris and made them aware of this situation and they told me I would have to settle that with the IRS. Long story short...we settled with the IRS and NEVER was the durable power of attorney we signed with JK Harris ever even filed on our behalf with the IRS. I know because I asked the IRS about this form. We tried to get our money back but never received one dime! NEVER, NEVER, NEVER use JK Harris. They are a total rip off!

JK Harris is especially BAD, but ANYONE who advertises 'settle with the IRS for pennies on the dollar' beware - it is a SCAM. They will just take your money (A LOT of it), have you sign a form so it makes it seem like they are doing something for you and...NOTHING! I am in the tax industry and I know first hand how settlements work with the IRS. VERY FEW ARE ACCEPTED!!! Not everybody qualifies. If you want to save yourself time and heartache, keep your money. Go to www.irs.gov and get the checklist for an 'Offer in Compromise'. Go through the checklist and see if you qualify. The IRS has a lot of factors they consider. If after you go through the checklist and believe you may qualify, consult a LOCAL tax office in your area. Ask if they prepare Offers in Compromise. Be sure to check out their business before you 'buy'. It REALLY peeves me to see these ads on TV and know people are going to be scammed.
