It generally starts with a letter from the Automated Collection Service (ACS) requesting more money. Perhaps it was from a change in your tax return and an amount you did not send with your return. But if left unpaid, the letters begin to sound more ominous. Pretty soon the IRS is threatening to levy your bank account and garnish your wages. While we do not think you should ever let it go this far, all your options are still available. The key is to stop the levy action or wage garnishment. And you certainly want to stop it before the IRS begins action to sell your personal assets.
You have many options, from paying the tax owed, making payment arrangements (called an Installment Agreement), making a settlement offer for less than you owe (Offer in Compromise), or having your account declared "Currently Uncollectable." In addition, you may qualify for relief under the new Innocent Spouse provisions or you may have reasonable cause for the abatement of penalties. Bankruptcy is another option. While not all tax debts can be discharged, many can. This, along with all the other options will be fully explained to you.
As part of services our representatives will help you evaluate all the options available to you. In reviewing your financial history we will make recommendations based upon the greatest probability of success with the IRS. And with each option there are always unpleasant side effects. These too will be fully explained. With the help of our expert representatives you will be able to make the most informed choice possible. Once that decision is made we really go to work for you.
In collection issues we may be dealing with ACS, a Revenue Officer, or even Appeals. We are qualified to represent you at all the administrative levels of the IRS, including Appeals. We are your advocate. Our job is to present your case in the most favorable light legally possible. The IRS is required to work with us as your representatives. Once you have retained the services of one of our taxpayer representatives, you can direct the IRS employee to contact us. Without a subpoena, you are not required to talk with them at all. They must deal with your representative. Think of the peace of mind knowing that a highly trained taxpayer representative is handling your case for you.
All tax debts can be resolved by our taxpayer representatives. We have worked on cases involving all tax debts, from unpaid income tax to unpaid payroll tax deposits. If you owe the IRS money, we are the people to talk with.
