Not filing your taxes can happen for many reasons. The most important first step is to get up to date and file your back returns. Our North Coast CPA firm will work with the IRS on your behalf to resolve any past issues, file your back taxes and do all we can to minimize your back tax debt and any penalties associated with your failure to file.
The IRS will not allow you to use other tax debt relief options like an offer in compromise or installment agreement until your back taxes are filed. Once the back tax returns are filed, we can work with the IRS to arrange alternate payment methods if you are unable to pay the balance due.
Never ignore a notice from the IRS – it can have very serious consequences. The IRS can place a lien on your property, house, car or wages or even go as far as seizing your property in order to collect the back taxes. Contact us immediately so we can begin to negotiate on your behalf. Working with our North Coast accounting firm, it can show the IRS that you are seriously trying to resolve the issue quickly.
Wage garnishment is one of the ways the IRS uses to collect the taxes you owe. If they contact your employer they will demand that your employer send part of your wages to the IRS to cover your tax debt. If your wages have been garnished, contact us immediately. We will work with the IRS to come up with an arrangement to settle your debt and have the wage garnishment removed.
If you have received a notice that you are being audited by the IRS, don't panic - contact our office immediately. As experienced tax specialists, we have the experience and expertise to deal with the IRS on your behalf. We understand their rules, and we can negotiate the lowest possible debt settlement allowed by law.
Offer in compromise
Not everyone will qualify for an offer in compromise (OIC), which is an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS, that can help you settle your tax debt for less than what you owe. We are experienced tax professionals who have experience negotiating offers in compromise with the IRS. Contact us today so we can determine if your situation qualifies for this special program.
When you cannot afford to pay your tax debt immediately, we can help you negotiate an installment agreement with the IRS. This type of payment plan option is good those who cannot afford a lump sum payment to cover their tax debt.
Currently Not Collectible
When your account is placed into a Currently Not Collectible status, that means that your account is removed from the IRS' active collection status. There are very strict guidelines for people who qualify for this status. Contact us today so we can help you determine if you qualify.
Penalty and Interest
We are experienced at representing clients before the IRS to negotiate lower penalties or interest payments on back taxes. Sometimes it is possible to have the penalties and interest completely removed, depending on the situation.
