Minnesotta Attorney General Lori Swanson today file suit against TaxMasters, a tax debt relief company.
The suit allegedly states that TaxMasters used deceptive and misleading advertisements and commercials to attract consumers into large up-front fees for debt relief services, paying upwards of $8,000.
The suit is said to claim the TaxMasters salespeople encouraged consumers to pay the steep fees on credit cards or drain savings accounts.
At the heart of this matter is the problematic reality that the majority of consumers that seek tax debt relief services receive little to no help.
Just this year California went after another tax debt relief company, Roni Deutch for what they said was her “heartless scam.”
