Other tax resolution companies sell you on Offers in Compromise. That allows their salesmen (and KCTM doesn’t hire salesmen!) to tell you that their taxes can be settled for “pennies on the dollar” and charge very high fees.

When the Offer is finally rejected, the company reminds you that you signed a contract stating that the offer may not be accepted.
