Back Tax Returns in Chandler

Do you have back tax returns in Chandler to file?

If you are reading this blog you may be in a similar situation that Jason was in recently. He had four years of back tax returns in Chandler to file with the Internal Revenue Service. One of those tax years was 2017. 2017 was a year the IRS decided to file for him (because he had not) What was the result? Just took at the IRS letter below. He had an account balance due of $75,762. Unbelievable right? Especially when you look lower and see what the result was after Scott Allen EA represented Jason and protested the IRS’s decision.

Back Tax Returns in Chandler

In addition to protesting the 2017 tax year for Jason, Scott Allen EA also got him caught up with his 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 back tax returns in Chandler. The IRS requires a taxpayer to be completely filing compliant in order to negotiate or work through a settlement. The $13,733 refund was able to be applied to taxes owed on other years as well helping out Jason greatly. With the remaining tax debt owed, Scott Allen EA was able to successfully wrap it all into one monthly payment plan that Jason could afford to do on a monthly basis.

This is just one of many examples Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors could show you. He is representing clients before the IRS on a daily basis. This is his niche and all that he does. He can represent you from start to finish in preparing your back tax returns in Chandler and settling any IRS debt into one of their many settlement options available.

Beware of out of state companies advertising this type of work online, on the TV or radio, or by mail. Usually they are making promises that just aren’t true especially without knowing anything about your overall tax debt or your current financial status and assets. It is always best to work locally with someone who does with work full time to receive the best representation. Scott Allen EA will meet with you for a consultation for no charge and no obligation. If he cannot see himself being an asset to you he will either give you a referral or let you know how you can tackle it best on your own.

File Back Tax Returns in Gilbert

Scott can file back tax returns in Gilbert

If you forget or fail to file back tax returns in Gilbert the IRS can file returns for you. Yes, you read that correctly. The IRS will gather whatever income information that can on you and submit a tax return for processing and assess you a balance due. They will do this usually three to seven years after the tax return was due and after sending the taxpayer several warning notices. If you don’t recall receiving any of these notices the IRS could be sending them to your last address on record which could be pretty old depending on the last time you filed a tax return. It is always better to take care of back tax returns before the IRS gets it to this level that way there isn’t protest work involved. Either way, Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc can file back tax returns in Gilbert for you. He will speak to the IRS throughout the entire process so you do not have to.

Have you maybe lost some of your tax and financial records in order to file back tax returns in Gilbert accurately? Scott Allen EA can also help with that process as well. As your IRS Power of Attorney he can help retrieve as much information from the IRS as possible.

Scott Allen EA has a recent client, Brandon who was behind in some Gilbert back tax returns. One of those years being 2014. This IRS filed and made their own assessment that totaled over $31,000 in back taxes owed.  This was outrageous. Upon an investigation into the account Scott Allen EA discovered that the IRS grabbed all the taxpayer’s gambling winnings and included it as income. The IRS didn’t know about or take into account any of the taxpayer’s gambling losses. Brandon then went and gathered up his casino and bank records to support deducting gambling losses. The tax law allows you to deduct your gambling losses up to a taxpayers winnings. Scott Allen EA prepared a 2014 return to protest the IRS’s Substitute For Return (SFR). Upon its full acceptance over $21,000 of taxes, interest, and penalties was removed. Check out the IRS acceptance letter below.

It is always important to do a complete review of a taxpayers account before negotiating a payment plan, non collectible status, offer in compromise, filing a tax bankruptcy, or file back tax returns in Gilbert.  Scott Allen EA can assist and represent you before the Internal Revenue Service from start to finish.

No more Mesa AZ IRS Garnishment

How to stop a Mesa AZ IRS Garnishment

Yes, a Mesa AZ IRS garnishment can be stopped and in many cases it can be stopped before your next paycheck. The IRS will issue garnishment notice to your employer when you owe them for unpaid back taxes and/or behind on filing your tax returns. Your employer is required by law to withhold a chunk of your paycheck and send it to the IRS. Often times it can be as much as 30-40% of your take home pay. Your employer will respond to the Mesa AZ IRS garnishment notice until the debt is fully satisfied or they receive a notice of release of levy. Its always better to get compliant with the IRS before a garnishment notice is sent out but if that isn’t the case you still have options.

How to get the IRS to send out a notice of release of levy to an employer?

In one sentence, you need to get compliant! Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors Inc can help you do so. To get the IRS to issue a notice of release on the Mesa AZ IRS garnishment an agreement needs to be negotiated and approved by the IRS. An agreement could be a currently non collectible status, a payment plan, or an agreement to full pay in 90 days to give you some examples. Once the IRS approves an agreement they have to send out a release of levy to your employer. Scott Allen EA will typically do most of this work over the phone with the IRS to expedite the process. By mail, things can take weeks to happen. Most taxpayers do not have weeks to wait as their next paycheck may only be a few days away. Time is of the essence and Scott Allen EA understands this. He will work into the evening if it means you have a shot as getting 100% of your next paycheck.

Have Mesa AZ back tax returns to file?

As your IRS power of attorney in this process he will represent you from start to finish to make sure everything is done right, and right the first time! Feel free to give him a call and schedule a free initial consultation. That is exactly what David did and he was thrilled with the result. He received a Mesa AZ IRS garnishment notice but rather than having the IRS suck 32% of his take home pay Scott was able to negotiate his back taxes into a very manageable $390/month payment plan. This was all negotiated before his next payday and David’s wages were never garnished. Both years he owes for are included into that arrangement. Take a look as the IRS approval notice below. No more Mesa AZ IRS garnishment to worry about for David!

File Back Tax Returns in Mesa

Can I still file back tax returns in Mesa?

The answer is most definitely yes. Scott Allen EA receives calls all the time with taxpayers asking, “is it possible to file back tax returns in Mesa?”  Just because you miss one year, three years, or eleven years of filing your taxes it doesn’t mean they wont let you file a current year tax return. Clients will also ask Scott Allen EA, “do you think the IRS forgot about me? I have not file a tax return in four years and I have not heard from them yet?”  Trust this one rule, the IRS may be slow and inefficient at what they do but they will never forget about you. Eventually time catches up and the IRS will force a taxpayer to file back tax returns in Mesa by either:

  • sending you a “lock-in” letter forcing you to withhold taxes from your current employer at the highest possible rate and unable to change it for three years
  • filings a substitute for return (SFR) in your behalf giving you a balance due on back taxes owed
  • filing a tax lien
  • bank levy
  • wage garnishment
  • assigning your case to a local IRS Revenue Officer

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc that whether you have to file back tax returns in Mesa for two years, four years, or ten years is it always better to reach out to the IRS before they reach out. Because by doing do we can prevent them from doing any of those negative actions against you mentioned above. Once an IRS wage garnishment has been started 1) it is difficult to get it stopped and 2) it is difficult to correct the matter when the IRS is taking 30% of your paycheck. With Scott Allen EA as your IRS Power of Attorney he can represent you and put a hold to any collection activity before it ever begins. Then once that hold is placed on the account it will remain on hold as long as the commitments are met to get the taxpayer fully compliant.

What does it mean to be fully compliant?

In addition to file back tax returns in Mesa a taxpayer also needs to be sure they are having proper W2 withholdings with the federal and state or making monthly or quarterly estimated tax payments if they are self employed. The IRS needs to be certain that if they are going to work out a payment plan or offer in compromise settlement that you will not owe on next years taxes when it is due April 15th. Scott Allen EA will be there for you next year by sending you a reminder letter in January and a phone call in February to come in a get your current year taxes prepared, filed and paid on time.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc has been in business since 1977 and Scott Allen EA bought the family business in 2011. Together they have settled over 100,000 IRS debts. Below is just one recent example of a successful case where Scott Allen EA was able to file back tax returns in Mesa and save Trevor $77,638 on his 2016 tax return.

Idioms to Remember if you need to STOP a Mesa AZ IRS Levy

Scott will stop Mesa AZ IRS Levy

An idiom is an expression that in and of itself makes no sense when translated into another language.  Knowing the literal meaning of idioms does not enable you to understand them unless you also know what they allude to. I have listed below the most important idioms that everyone should know if you are in need to stopping a Mesa AZ IRS levy.  It is important to understand how they apply to your situation.
  • Ace in the hole—A hidden advantage.  “The coach was certain that his new trick play would turn out to be his ace in the hole.” This term comes from the game of stud poker, in which one or more cards are turned face down, or “in the hole,” as bets are placed.  The ace is the card with the highest value.
  • Act of God—An event beyond human control like an earthquake or a volcanic eruption.
  • Albatross around one’s neck—An annoying burden: “That old car is an albatross around my neck.”
  • Bite the bullet—To adjust to unpleasant circumstances.  “The severe drought is forcing everybody to bit the bullet and use less water.”  Before anesthesia, surgeons operating on the wounded gave them a bullet to bite to help withstand the pain.
  • Burn the candle at both ends—To do more than one ought to: to overextend oneself: “Working three jobs is burning the candle at both ends.”
  • Chip on one’s shoulder—To “have a chip on one’s shoulder” is to invite conflict by being extremely touchy.  In the past, a young boy would place a wood chip on his shoulder and dare anyone to knock it off as a way of showing how tough he was.
  • Chutzpah—Yiddish term for courage bordering on arrogance.

There is more then one way to stop a Mesa AZ IRS levy.  It is important to make a plan of attack for your specific circumstances to be sure to stop the IRS levy in Mesa AZ as soon as possible.  Many times is can be accomplished within a 24 hour period of first contact with the IRS.  On occasions we can get the IRS to give a temporary or partial stop to a Mesa AZ IRS levy with commitments to get accomplished as is needed (i.e. file back tax returns, provide financial information) to make it a permanent stop to the IRS levy in Mesa AZ.

Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation work

Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation by Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

Jay was defaulting on his payment plan and needed a new Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation done. His biggest worry was having the IRS file a federal tax lien against his credit. It is understood that on most payment plans with the IRS they will file a tax lien to protect their interest.  There are some exceptions to that rule however. If you owe the IRS in total less then $50,000 you can prevent an IRS tax lien. Once a federal tax lien has been filed it cannot be removed until the debt is paid off in full, settled in an offer in compromise, or been on a payment plan and now owe less then $25,000.

Because Jay had defaulted his installment arrangement with the IRS he was at risk to them placing a tax lien against him.  However, with a proper strategy this could be avoided.  This is exactly what Tax Debt Advisors did for him.  Given Power of Attorney, Scott Allen EA contacted the IRS right away to hold off collection activity so time could be allowed to get the taxpayer back into compliance. Updating the financial information it was determined that they could get a new payment plan reestablished as a direct debit arrangement for $700 per month. At this amount the IRS did not file a federal tax lien and the taxpayers can continue on with their Phoenix AZ IRS negotiation.

Juanita was given nearly an $82,000 tax bill from the IRS on her 2017 tax year. She realized she made good money that year being self employed but it wasn’t “that” good. Scott Allen EA was able to be her IRS power of attorney and research the matter in her behalf. When the IRS assessed her the $82,000 tax bill they didn’t incorporate any of her operating business expenses. With this being said, Scott was able to prepare and file a protest to the IRS’s decision and get a proper return accepted by the IRS. As you can see below $18,505 was removed from her tax bill. That includes the tax, interest and penalties.

Tempe Arizona IRS Help: Collections Due Process Appeal?

Tempe AZ IRS Help

When a taxpayer and the IRS cannot come to an agreement regarding taxes owed or the settlement of how those taxes will be paid, Congress in 1998 enacted the Collection Due Process Appeal (CDP) process.  A Tempe Arizona IRS Tax Attorney is not required to take this action.  The IRS Appeals Office was set up to independently review the dispute when the negotiations between the IRS and taxpayer breakdown or when the taxpayer has ignored previous collection attempts by the IRS.

When the taxpayer receives his final notice to pay, they have 30 days to appeal the collection with a CDP Appeal.  The Appeals office is interested in resolving the matter as quickly as possible.  Many times it is in the best interest of the taxpayer to wait until they can petition the collection of taxes with the Appeals Office.

The Appeals Officer is willing to look at any settlement option that the law allows.  Scott Allen E.A. is well versed in all the settlement options and the amount to be paid with each option.  Scott will negotiate the best settlement the law will allow.  Call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 for a free consultation to evaluate filing a Collection Due Process Appeal and your settlement options.  Before thinking you need a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney give Scott Allen a call today!

A taxpayer will have a lot of different options available to them when needing Tempe AZ IRS help. It could involve a CDP Appeal but often times it will not. It just requires timely follow through service and that is exactly what Scott Allen E.A. does provide. See what he did for his client Cindy. She found herself a couple years behind on paying her personal taxes. She didn’t need to file any appeals or challenge any IRS decisions. She just needed proper representation and negotiate the two years of back taxes into a low monthly payment plan.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. Releases Arizona IRS Tax Levies

Release Arizona IRS Levy with Payment Plan

The IRS in Arizona is a relentless bill collector.  One of the most aggressive actions the IRS takes is tp place an Arizona IRS levy on a taxpayer.  The two most common levy actions are against your bank accounts and wages.  These extreme actions will continue until you come into full compliance with the IRS.  This means you will have to file any unfiled past tax returns and if you owe taxes, enter into a settlement option.  The IRS will always fire a warning shot first with notices and reminder letters.  Do not ignore these.  The longer you do the harder it will be to resolve you levy quickly.  If you are slow to act the IRS will also be slow to respond until you are in full compliance.  The IRS can take 100% of the money you have in a bank account up to the amount of taxes owed and up to 80% of you paycheck until all of your tax liability is paid.

Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has the experience to resolve any IRS levy.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has helped thousands of Arizona employees with IRS levy problems at hundreds of companies including the following to name just a few in the car business:

Scott Allen EA helps with IRS Audit Reconsideration in Phoenix AZ

Audit Reconsideration in Phoenix AZ

If you are considering audit reconsideration in Phoenix AZ may I suggest you make a call to Scott Allen EA. Click on the following image to view a recent success he had with a current client in an IRS a similar situation.  Scott Allen EA saved this client $18,451 simply by challenging the IRS auditor through audit reconsideration in Phoenix Arizona.

phoenix az irs audit reconsideration 1

Just because the IRS says its so does not make it correct.  If you feel your audit did not go as you has hoped and you have a new position for the IRS to consider you may want to consider IRS audit reconsideration in Phoenix AZ.  Audit reconsideration can also be an effective tool if you have unfiled tax returns.  The IRS can “audit” you on that unfiled tax return and asses you on the tax debt that they come up with.  Its up to the taxpayer to file and protest their findings.  One thing to always remember with Phoenix AZ audit reconsideration though is that they are not quick fixes.  As we all know the IRS can be slow and patience has to be used throughout the process. Scott Allen EA has seen IRS audit reconsideration take 2 months and he has seen them take 18 months.  Because of this it is important to have an IRS power of attorney like Scott Allen EA to work aggressively for you. Schedule an appointment to meet with him today for an in office visit.

If you have an IRS assessment that you have zero idea on how they came up with that amount its probably because the IRS filed what they call a SFR return.  SFR stands for substitute for return. What does this mean? It means you had an unfiled tax return so they filed in your behalf. These are returns that you want to take to audit reconsideration. Scott Allen EA has the experience to get that done for you.

Another Case Update for Audit Reconsideration in Phoenix AZ

Christie went through a CP-2000 underreporting audit by the IRS because of some errors made by them and also their previous preparer who prepared their 2016 tax return.  Due to inaction, the IRS assessed Christie over $88,000 in tax, interest and penalty. She met with Scott and hired him to be her power of attorney and investigate the matter. It was discovered that the IRS was erroneously doubling her K1 income. An amended business return was filed and the IRS took both K1’s as income to her rather then removing the original and only assessing the amended K1.  It was nearly a 9 month long fight with the IRS to get this explained and correct; but the result made it all worth it. Over $79,000 of tax, interest and penalty was removed from her account. Click and view the IRS audit reconsideration Phoenix AZ letter below.
