Before it filed for a bankruptcy reorganization that was switched to a liquidation bankruptcy, JK Harris was company was credible enough to have become the nation's largest tax resolution firm. JK Harris, however, had a spotty reputation. The high number of online complaints echoed similar themes: JK Harris overpromised, lack of continuity due to the clients' being told that someone new was working on the case, and high-pressure sales tactics. The "F" rating at the BBB was also concerning, as were various government actions against it.

Pros: Before It Shut Down, JK Harris Had A Track Record Of Successfully Negotiating Tax Debts Since 1997, Enrolling More Than 400 New Clients Per Week. It Was The Nation's Largest Tax Resolution Firm.
Cons: BBB Rating "F" Due To Large Number Of Unresolved Complaints, Large Number Of Cases Per Assigned Agent. High-pressure Sales Techniques. Large Number Of Complaints Online.

JK Harris robbed me of over $5,000 I could have sent to the IRS for my debt and instead cost 3 years of additional interest now added to my account and $5,000 in the hole. THANKS FOR NOTHING.

I wish I had read all the bad reviews online, before I forked out so much money for NOTHING but more problems. I got the run around from JK Harris. MY case got shifted from agent to agent, all with no positive results. I had to work out my own solution with the IRS and the money I spent with JK Harris would have been better spent paying the IRS.

They signed me up and my representative sat down with me and looked at like everything i've ever owned, earned or paid. It was really thorough, but then once I did sign up with them and paid them, the high touch went away. I would probably still go with JK Harris again, since I did get my tax IRS problems solved, but they could have been as good on the back part as on the sales part.
