IRS Payment Plans
Seeing that you owe more money on your tax return than expected can be daunting. Did you know that the IRS offers payment plans and installation agreements? We can help you get all your paperwork in and communicate with the IRS to figure out an option that works for both parties.
Non-Filed Tax Returns & Back Taxes Owed
Sometimes life gets in the way and things don’t get done. If you missed filing taxes for one or more years, we can help you get in compliance with the law and up to date with your returns. Taking care of non-filed returns will assure that you avoid further penalties and interest charges. If you did file, but were unable to pay, we can help figure out your best options for bringing taxes owed from previous years up to date.
IRS Audit Representation
Opening an IRS audit letter can be frightening. Having a tax professional on your side making sure everything is in order is the best way to handle an audit quickly and efficiently. We can represent your best interests to the IRS so you don’t need to take time off from your business, job, or family to handle paperwork and phone calls.
Filing bankruptcy may or may not affect your tax debt. We can help you figure out what happens with the IRS when you file for bankruptcy.
Payroll Tax Problems
Penalties for failing to pay your payroll taxes or file payroll taxes on time are more severe than other types of penalties because a large portion of the payroll taxes are your employees’ withholdings. If you are behind on payroll taxes, we can help you come to terms without losing your business or assets and figure out how to minimize future penalties.
IRS Liens, Levies, Seizures & Wage Garnishments
If you’ve got unpaid tax debt, the IRS might begin sending notices of liens, levies and seizures. The thought of having wages taken away can be very stressful, especially when you may be on a tight budget already. We can help you to communicate with the IRS to try and come to an agreement that works. In some cases, wage garnishments can be released through arrangement of a payment plan.
Offer in Compromise
If you cannot afford to pay your full tax debt, you may be able to negotiate with the IRS to settle your debt for a percentage of what you owe. We can help you figure out if you’re eligible, and negotiate the settlement on your behalf.
Innocent Spouse Relief
Are you carrying tax debt due to misdeeds or fraud committed by a spouse? You may qualify for innocent spouse relief. We can help you figure out if you’re liable, and if not, how to communicate with the IRS to request relief.
