I contacted Instant Tax Solutions to assist me with my overdue taxes. I spoke to a Byron, who claimed he was part owner of the company. We went through a bunch of questions about my financial ability to pay the IRS. The private nature of our discussion made me uneasy, but I knew if someone was going to help me, they needed to know this information. But then things got too uncomfortable when Byron described how he has been sober for a few months now and that his addiction days are long gone. Probably not something you wanna share with a potential client... So I decided to do some more research on this guy and his so called company. Here is what I found...you might wanna prepare yourself for this... First red flag: The Idaho BBB shows Instant Tax Solutions conducting business since 2004 but the Idaho Secretary of State shows the LLC was created in 2008/2009. Apparently, the longer you've been in business the higher your grade with the BBB... Second red flag: The owners. Ian Woodman and Byron Pederson. Just google "Ian Woodman in Idaho". Scary stuff. Now check this out: http://www.healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=5uZ9YUILMrE%3D&tabid=130&mid=1187 Third red flag...Like I already mentioned: Byron and his "addiction days". But I decided to give Byron a chance to explain himself...so I called him back. He immediately got all defensive and a bit rage-like on the phone. I didn't appreciate being spoken to that way, so needless to say I hung up. Look, I'm from a big, busy city and after all this it's no surprise that Instant Tax Solutions is just another scamming company run by convicted felons. If you have IRS issues like I do...do your research! You already have enough problems...
