Are you experiencing problems with unpaid back taxes? You are not alone. IRS tax problems of one kind or another affect one in four people. The good news is that help is readily available, and we offer our professional services, whether you seek assistance with filing back tax returns, negotiating an offer in compromise, contesting an incorrect tax liability, or stopping a wage garnishment or bank levy.
Back Taxes & Tax Problems
As you are aware, the IRS demands that tax returns be filed and taxes be paid in a timely manner. Otherwise, the IRS will assess substantial penalties and interest. Potential tax problems will only become greater as the IRS begins to take action to collect on the unpaid tax debt. Enforced collection action may include a bank levy, wage garnishment, or other asset seizure. As with many taxpayers, unforeseen circumstances may have prevented you from dealing with your tax obligations. Fortunately, tax relief programs are available that will allow you to resolve issues with your back taxes.
Offer in Compromise
One such program is an offer in compromise, which is an agreement between a taxpayer and the government to settle a tax liability for less than the full amount owed. The IRS may accept an offer when it is not likely that the tax liability can be collected in full and the offer amount reflects what can be collected over a reasonable period of time. An offer in compromise may also be accepted based on a doubt as to liability or the existence of special circumstances. By successfully negotiating an offer, you may be allowed to pay only a fraction of your total debt and save a significant amount of money.
If you find yourself with tax problems, you can retain the services of not only a tax attorney or CPA, but also an enrolled agent to represent you and speak on your behalf with the IRS. An enrolled agent is an individual who is licensed by the IRS to handle problems with back taxes, wage garnishments, and offers in compromise. To become an enrolled agent, an individual must have worked for the IRS for a certain number of years, or have passed a comprehensive 2-day examination administered by the IRS and devoted entirely to income taxes. An enrolled agent is considered to be one of the most qualified of income tax professionals.
