On Oct 31, 2008 my wife and I contracted with JK Harris to file an Offer in Compromise on a 2005 tax debt. The amount charged was $6500 - about $2500 paid so far. We were told that JK Harris would file an Emergency Request for Existing Levy Release. According to the IRS, none was ever filed on my account. My accounts have since been levied for over $4500.

A JK Harris agent was assigned my case on Nov 11, 2008 - one Kelly Amerson. I sent all required documentation to Ms. Amerson in December and never received any response. Ms. Amerson had either been released from employment or quit some time in December. We were never notified and our case was not then reassigned to another agent.

After receiving a Notice of intent to levy, I contacted JK Harris and was assigned to a new agent - one Sanicqua Robinson-Jackson. She required me to resubmit all of the required documentation which I did over the next two days.

on 12 Jan 2009 JK Harris sent drafts of IRS forms 2848, 443-A and 656. These were corrected and returned on 13 Jan 2007.

On or about Feb 10, 2009 the IRS levied my checking account for over $4500. I cannot make rent or bills now and am in danger of eviction. I contacted Ms. Jackson and was told that chances were I wouldn't get that money back. She then sent to me the final copies of forms 443 and 656. These were incorrect and had to be returned to JK Harris.

I contacted Ms. Robinson-Jackson on Feb 11, 2009 and was advised (told) to not initiate any communications with the IRS for any reason. That if I were personally contacted by IRS, to advise that a power of attorney is filed at IRS and to provide the contact information for JK Harris.

According to the IRS, no such Power of Attorney has been filed on my account. Further, no correspondence (written or voice) has been made on my behalf by JK Harris.

On 16 Feb 2009, I sent a written notice to discontinue automatic debits from JK Harris.

I have also lodged complaints at www.lawcash.com and have contacted the San Francisco law firm Hersh & Hersh, the law firm which handled a 2007 class action suit against JK Harris. I will also lodge complaints with the California Attorney General and the Office of Professional Responsibility.

It is my opinion that JK Harris is in breach of contract and conducts misleading and fraudulent business practices and that this conduct has directly caused the loss of over $4500 in levies. They have only communicated when I could actually get through to them. They rarely initiated communication. They provide no accounting of forms filed, communications made on our behalf. The IRS has no record of any contact or filed forms on our behalf.

If a law firm accepts this case, I will seek refund of all fees paid to JK Harris by me; an amount equal to the money lost to IRS levy; associated overdraft and legal fees on levied accounts; and all legal fees associated with a suit against JK Harris.
