Anyone else being harassed by this criminal organization? How can this tax collection contractor legally require people to disprove their erroneous conclusion that you didn't file with the government? Also, if taxes were filed and paid with the government, then how can Berkheimer charge escalating fees for not responding to their bogus claims? This is fraud, and requires a class-action lawsuit from the citizens of PA to stop it.

Please write or e-mail State Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, if you are being stalked, harassed, and wrongly accused and billed for "tax evasion" by Berkheimer in Pennsylvania.

Berkheimer have gone from demanding a fee 2 years ago that they were never due ( I have their receipts showing I paid the fee they requested) to adding more fees and placing it on a payment plan they claim I agreed to, to now claiming the fees as EARNED INCOME TAX! This has to be illegal. I have the paper trail but they count on people just coughing up the money to avoid the effort. Thieves.

They can suck it. They're sending me invoices with "collection fees" for an 11 dollar bill I didn't pay. I never received their alleged bill, and I I'll be damned if I'm paying their usurious collection fees for a bill I never got. So I sent them a check for 11 bucks to shut them up, but guess what ? They continue to send ever escalating invoices with late fees as well as collection fees. They can piss up a rope.

head tax sucks in norristown! this is a bunch of sh!t stinking 10 dollar tax and no envelope to return. it will cost them more than 10 dollars to process the check. not helpful, wait for 1/2 hour for them to finally answer the phone, then they don't talk when you ask questions leaving dead air on the phone. customer service sucks

Know it's an old post, but it's worth mentioning they lost a class-action lawsuit in 2007. Okay, they didn't lose per se, but they settled quick as hell - scared much? The fees are completely illegal under current laws, and I'm considering filing my own suit against them for these alleged "fees". "Fees" in quotes since it's more of "give me your money". Also they can't put a lien on your property, only the gov't can, so Berk-the-Jerk will have to take you to court, and lose. But let's face it, they have no case anyway.

I'm calling them today and telling them I'll gladly pay my $16.50 (5.50 local, 11 school) and they can shove their well laid fees up their well laid ass.

I got a bill from Berkheimer from back 2012 charging penalty and interest 21.42 $ and Failure to pay cost 25 $ on top of the amount they claim I did not pay. How can they charge failure to pay when they never send me a bill??? I give the whole thing to my lawyer and see what he will do with it.
