Frequently Asked Questions

I owe the IRS so much money and I can’t seem to pay it off in this lifetime. What can I do?

That’s the purpose of an Offer in Compromise. This program offers taxpayers a chance to get a fresh start. An offer in compromise allows a taxpayer that cannot pay his tax liabilities an opportunity to settle for less than he owes.

IRS Appeals: May I appeal an IRS decision?

Yes, a taxpayer(s) may appeal by: a) following the instructions in the letter you received. b) Use form 12203, Request for Appeals Review, or the form referenced in the letter to file your appeal, or prepare a brief written statement.

Penalty Forgiveness: Is penalty forgiveness a possibility?

Yes, it is possible to have 100% of your penalties forgiven or removed with proper IRS tax help. Requesting an abatement of penalties differs on a case-by-case basis.

IRS Garnishment : My paycheck was just garnished. What can I do?

You will not have to deal with the IRS alone. We can help release your wage garnishment.

If the IRS levies (seizes) your wages, part of your wages will be sent to the IRS each pay period until:

  • You make other arrangements to pay your overdue taxes
  • The amount of overdue taxes you owe is paid, or
  • The levy is released

Lien Removal: The IRS has filed a lien against me. What now?

The lien attaches to all property you own or will acquire in the future. Often, we can prevent a lien from being filed with timely IRS tax help. If it has already been filed, we will negotiate with the IRS and there are ways to have the lien removed.

Statute of Limitations: What are the Statute of Limitations when it comes to Taxes?

The IRS statute of limitations on action for back taxes depends on a few factors. The primary factor is whether a tax return was filed or not. The next question is how accurate (or inaccurate) the return was.

From date of IRS Assessment, they have up to 10 years to collect.

Payroll Taxes: IRS said I owe payroll taxes. Can you help me?

The IRS is very aggressive when it comes to collecting payroll taxes. Penalties and assessments by the IRS will quickly increase the amount due. If the IRS determines the business cannot pay its past due payroll taxes, they will look to the individuals who they say are responsible. We will negotiate with the IRS and design a plan for you to get your situation under control and avoid asset seizures and bank levies.

Injured Spouse/Innocent Spouse: Am I liable to pay taxes my spouse or former spouse owes?

The IRS knows this happens and has developed guidelines by which a person may qualify as an “innocent spouse.” If you qualify, you may be released from tax liabilities, penalties and interest incurred by your spouse or former spouse.

Information From the IRS: How would I know when and how my IRS problems started?

The Freedom of Information Act was passed by Congress requiring government agencies to disclose information when requested. Part of the help with IRS liabilities that we provide is obtaining this information on a taxpayer’s behalf to better understand the whole problem and devising a solution. With Form 2848 we are able to inquire about your situation directly from the IRS.
