Our mission is to protect the rights of individuals and businesses to get the best possible tax resolution with the IRS.

We have recently become aware of companies and/or organizations who are calling people using the generic name "Tax Relief Center" for their phone solicitation activities. TaxReliefCenter.org does not make these automated calls to consumers and it is our policy not to engage in this form of marketing.If you have received such a call, please let us know by emailing [email protected] so that we may report this unauthorized activity.
Additionally, the IRS does not use email, text messages or social media to discuss tax debts or refunds with taxpayers. The IRS initiates most contacts with taxpayers through regular mail delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. There are special circumstances when they may reach out via phone regarding overdue tax bills or delinquencies, but almost always only after they’ve already sent a letter first.
UPDATE: Recently we have learned of instances where consumers are also getting automated calls regarding “unpaid taxes”. Do not respond to these calls as the IRS will typically send letters or notices via U.S. mail. So, if any company or organization calls claiming you have unpaid taxes, DO NOT respond to these unsolicited calls.

Why Do I Receive a Paper Check When I Requested Direct Deposit as a Mode of Payment?

Second, IRS may only deposit refunds to accounts under your own name, your spouse’s or a joint account. Third, IRS cannot deposit more than three electronic refunds into a single account.

Why is My Refund Different from the Tax Return I Filed?

Before the IRS issues your refund, they will take into consideration any outstanding federal and state income taxes, state unemployment compensation debts, child and/or spousal support, or any other federal non-tax debts, such as student loans. Your tax refund will be used to offset any of these variables. The IRS may also change the refund amount in certain special cases. You will be notified if there are changes in your refund status.
