WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST TAX PROBLEM?
I haven’t filed returns.
Life gets in the way of filing tax returns. People get married; some get divorced. People lose jobs and businesses. Unfortunately people get sick and they get behind on their tax returns. With us there is no judgment, we’re real people and face the same challenges. We just want to help you before the IRS contacts you.
I cannot pay taxes.
Lots of companies advertise tax reduction programs offered by the IRS. The most widely advertised program is called an Offer in Compromise (OIC). The IRS actually has three different OIC programs. Unfortunately, many of the sales representatives at tax resolution firms only know about the first category.
IRS is taking my paycheck.
Time is of the essence! You need to act quickly! The IRS has been trying to reach you but have been unsuccessful so, they took the extreme measure of garnishing your wages. This is actually called a wage levy by the IRS. Prior to a levy, the IRS is required to mail a final notice of Levy to the most recent address that they have.
IRS took my bank balance.
Time is of the essence! You need to act quickly! The IRS has been trying to reach you but have been unsuccessful so, they took the extreme measure of garnishing your bank, credit union, and brokerage accounts. This is actually called a bank levy by the IRS. Prior to a levy, the IRS is required to mail a final notice of Levy.
Can I settle my taxes for a lower amount?
We look at all three types of OICs to see if you qualify. We also look at other methods for reducing your tax debts like amended tax returns, audit reconsideration, innocent or injured spouse programs, Section 6015 equitable relief, penalty relief, bankruptcy, and partial-pay installment agreements.
I got a letter from the IRS and don’t know what to do.
Getting a letter from the IRS doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the world or that you’re going to jail however the IRS is trying to reach you. Unfortunately most ordinary people have difficulty understanding what the IRS is trying to communicate. We recommend reading IRS letters right away.
I got a phone call from the IRS.
Most phone calls from individuals claiming to represent the IRS are fraudulent. The IRS is forbidden from making aggressive or threatening phone calls. The IRS has seen a huge increase of criminal activity. Don’t panic, the IRS will never call to demand immediate payment and will never threaten arrest.
