I contracted with JK Harris a year ago and have paid over $300 a month for a year! They have done nothing-NOTHING for me! I was making interest only payments to the IRS and wanted to consolidate the debt, JK Harris promised they could do that.
Over the past year they have lost the documents I have sent them and although my garnishment was stopped for the payments, now I owe over 8000 DOLLARS more to the IRS.
My wages were garnished AGAIN! I had to set up payments with the IRS myself and notified my caseworker with JK Harris, the most recent one as I have had a few over the past year, because she didn't even know! Some caseworker! I call and get no answer and run around getting copies of paperwork they lost.
Last year at this time I owed the IRS less money than I do now, I was making monthly payments to the IRS of about $300. (paying just interest) A payment very similar to that of the payment I made to JK Harris.
This year, I have lost money on several occations because I had to leave work to re-send and obtain duplicates of documents I already sent them. Sending the copies time and time again can accumulate, and driving from one place to another and back-again and again...RIDICULOUS! I know some of the people at the IRS building, post office and in Payroll by there FIRST NAME I have been there MYSELF and done all this "foot work" MYSELF. One day I was in and out of the IRS building 4 seperate times! DURING MY WORK DAY! I have done all this work to not even be back where I started, which would have been more acceptable. If these were the eduacated, I have been reassured consistantly (when they answered my calls) that they were only steps away from closing a deal with the IRS.
I talked to, (at my own request) the supervisor of my caseworker and they informed me, days after my last payment is made, that that there is nothing they can really do for me!
Shouldn't they have assessed my situation a year ago?! I have had no major pay increase or any kind of change really, that would effect my case.
Now they tell me I earn too much for them to help, it took a YEAR and THOUSANDS of dollars for them to tell me this!?
What do I do NOW?! I am going to go speak with the first person that arranged my payments. If anything, at least I can get it off my chest.
