is a growing problem. Make sure you
know who you're dealing with before providing any personal information. It's a
good idea to verify the companies physical address as some
firms conceal their actual location behind PO boxes, or rented mail
drops in different cities or States.
You will often find that although they may claim to have been in
business for "decades", in reality their websites are are newly formed
(you can verify how long their website has existed using any domain
lookup tool such as
http://www.domaintools.com/) Be especially wary
of companies that offer only a website, provide little or no history on
themselves, fail to provide a physical address or force you to to contact them only via email. Another
sign is firms that are unable to directly process credit card
transactions. They may have been denied or are otherwise unable to
qualify for a credit card merchant account (a physical inspection and positive
financial history is required.) They may
use a third party to process credit card transactions for them (such as
PayPal®) or require an alternate method of
payment such as check by phone which may afford less protection in case
of fraud. These options can result in your personal information
being provided to a third party, and any resulting credit card charge
on your credit card statement under a different name.

The name assigned to the manual process used to obtain transcripts
of previously filed tax returns, W2s, or 1099s. W2s and 1099s are
usually available even if the
taxpayer has not yet filed that years return (assuming the employer
filed the required year end returns.) Credit Technologies developed
a system whereby you can obtain your needed documents, usually within 48 hours rather than the sometimes 30 days it can take through the
IRS. Note, your transcripts will
appear in a different format than the returns you filed or your
W2s/1099s. They contain the data received and verified by the IRS. You
can obtain photo static copies of your tax returns if you desire, but
you must request them directly through the IRS and they may take up to
60 days to receive. Transcripts are acceptable for virtually every
intended purpose including mortgage, tax filing, bankruptcy or student
We do everything possible to get your data to you in the fastest
method possible. Most (95%+) of requests are returned within the stated times, however, no
provider can guarantee when the IRS will release your data, or if the
requested records exists in the IRS database.
Delays and rejections can occur due to errors or omissions on the
request forms, and delays on the part of the IRS (especially during tax
season.) Occasionally the IRS search will return "no records
found". This is usually due to information provided on the request not
matching the records on file with the IRS. In the case of missing W2 or
1099 records, it could also indicate the employer failed to file
required IRS forms.

intercepted by an email program or ISP filter designed to eliminate junk
mail. If you are still unable to locate your documents, please send an
email to 4506@CreditTechnologies.com.
