Tens of thousands of companies want to help you with your taxes. Google returns almost 75 million results for the search string “tax credit services.” Some of the more recognizable names in this field are TaxBreak, iApplicant, and ADP Tax Credit Services.
Unfortunately, not all of the companies your search will turn up actually do the assessment and monitoring that some of the credits need. “Employment tax credits must be filed within 28 days of the hire date, with a separate filing for each employee. If tax credit screening and compliance is all that a company does, you can assume that they do it well,” said Larry Cummings, Chief Connector, at TaxBreakLLC, based in Gadsden, Alabama.
As with any vendor relationship, the key is to maintain regular contact. If you can assess and express your needs and expectations, you will have a much better chance of finding the right vendor for you. Remember that not all vendors offer the same products, and that offerings with the same name are not necessarily the same product from company to company.
