Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney to get an IRS tax lien released or removed?

Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney

No, getting an IRS lien released is not a legal matter. If the IRS has filed a lien, it is important to know how long the Gilbert AZ tax lien has been filed.  After the statute of limitations period of 10 years, IRS tax liens are automatically released.  However, the IRS does not report this information to credit bureaus unless the taxes have been paid.  Scott Allen E.A of Gilbert and Mesa can advised you how to get the credit bureaus aware that your lien is no longer in place.

If you have just had a lien filed and feel that it should not have been filed in the first place and did not take advantage of a Collections Due Process Hearing, contact Scott Allen E.A. and set up a free consultation to determine if you have a valid reason for the IRS to release the tax lien.

If the lien is not released, there are situations where the IRS will subordinate their lien to allow you to get a loan on your Gilbert AZ home.  There are certain criteria that have to be met but if you qualify Scott Allen E.A. can get a subordination of your IRS tax lien.  Instead of working with a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney contact Scott Allen E.A if you have a tax lien to determine what your options are.  Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300.

Charles came in to meet with Scott Allen EA to discuss his tax problem. He had some old IRS debt still hanging out there but also needed to file back tax returns for six years. Rather then hiring a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney he hired Scott (an Enrolled Agent) to represent him before the IRS. Scott Allen EA was able to stop garnishment action, prepare all six years of his back tax returns and prevent the IRS from slapping a tax lien on him. All of his IRS debt was negotiated into a low $590/month payment plan. With all this being handled for him he is now applying to by a home for himself. This is just one of the thousands of happy clients that have used Scott for IRS tax relief in Gilbert AZ.

Enrolled Agent vs Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Enrolled Agent or a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney for IRS Relief?

Scott Allen EA wanted to share with you a recent success he had with a client this year.  By challenging an audit the IRS placed on a client for his 2010 tax return nearly $60,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties were reduced.  A copy of the approval notice from the IRS is below for your viewing.  An expensive Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney was not needed to get this done. Rather finding the right person with the right relationships with IRS personal acting in a timely matter is what’s required.

Tax Debt Advisors—What do I do when the IRS says I owe more money?

Help From Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa

More than likely you received an IRS CP-2000 notice.  This came because you did not report income items that were reported to the IRS.  Most of the time the IRS records are correct but often the tax due is not.  There are situations where a taxpayer reported the income but didn’t report it where the IRS computers expected to see it reported, or it was reported incorrectly on the IRS tax form.  Often there are tax deductions that were not taken that will appropriately off set the taxable income.  So don’t give up hope that you are going to owe the IRS.  Many times these notices come from stock sales not reported.  When the IRS sends you a notice that you did not report a sale of stock of $100 which is true, they do not know that you paid $300 for the stock.  Instead of owing more taxes, you have a refund due to your $200 loss.

Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa has the expertise to advise you on all IRS problem areas.  Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa offers a free initial consultation for Mesa Arizona residents and can be reached by calling 480-926-9300.

Offer in Compromise in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

IRS Offer in Compromise in Arizona —The sad truth.

The sad truth about Offers is that fraudulent tax representatives have benefited more from this program than the IRS.  If you have any question as to who I am referring to, here is the list—any company on TV, any company who has a centralized office in another state and operate with satellite offices filled with sales people, and any company that uses the phrase, “settle for pennies on the dollar.”

This is what we have learned over the last 45 years of tax representation.

  • Only 2-3% of the individuals we have met qualified for an Offer in Compromise that could pay the amount of a legitimate Offer.  If you insist on pursuing your Offer at least get a second opinion.
  • Of the 1000’s of rejected Offers we have reviewed that were prepared by fraudulent representatives over the last 45 years, less than 100 were legitimate and worthy of taking to the Office of Appeals.
  • Within 10 minutes I can tell you if your IRS offer in compromise in Arizona amount is reasonable.  But to do so, let me know two facts.  One, what amount do you qualify for as an installment arrangement and two, how much equity do you have in any assets such as a home, vehicles, retirement plans or cash in the bank.  Your Offer amount must be 12 times your monthly payment plan plus any equity you have in any assets.  If you still need a more professional opinion—Call me for a free initial confidential consultation.
  • If you qualify for an IRS offer in compromise in Arizona, we can file it and get it accepted as long as you provide us with accurate and complete information.

Finally, why do an Offer if it isn’t going to work?  I will calculate the amount of your Offer and provide you with all of your other settlement options.  Don’t be defrauded because you hear something you want to believe.  Get the truth from someone that will give you all of your options that will work.

IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona: When should I NOT use an attorney?

IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona: When should I NOT use an attorney?

Tax Attorney Phoenix | Mesa, Tempe, Chandler Scottsdale

If you are searching for “tax attorney“, “tax lawyer“, “IRS tax lawyer“, “IRS attorney“, “tax attorneys“, “IRS tax attorney“, “tax attorney near me” or “best tax attorney” in PhoenixMesaChandlerGilbert, Tempe or Scottsdale, Arizona, Scott Allen E. A. from Tax Debt Advisors can help!

Even the best tax lawyers & attorneys can’t compare to what Scott Allen E. A. can offer to help settle your problems with the IRS. First of all, lets take a look at what a tax attorney does.

What Is A Tax Attorney?

A tax attorney is a layer who specializes in tax law. They can help solve legal, technical and complex problems with the IRS.

What Does A Tax Attorney Do?

A tax attorney solves legal, technical and complex problems with the IRS. Tax attorneys can also help with:

  • Filing appeals of tax court decisions
  • Communication with the IRS
  • Help businesses save money
  • Help people take advantage of tax credits

However, these are all things a tax debt advisor could do for less money! Read more about why you need a tax debt advisor instead of hiring a tax attorney.

Can A Tax Attorney Really Help?

Yes, a tax attorney can really help if you want to pay more money for the same services a tax debt advisor can do for cheaper.

Why You Should I Tax Debt Advisor Vs. Hiring a Tax Attorney?

Tax Debt Advisors have great experience in settling debts with the IRS. Choosing a tax debt advisor instead of a tax attorney offers many benefits including:

  • More affordable services
  • Tax attorney typically charge 100-400% more for the same services a tax debt advisor could do
  • Tax debt advisors don’t use fear tactics to make you think the situation is worse than it is
  • Settle debt faster with simple tax debt solutions

We are not a tax attorney firm, rather, a tax debt specialist with expert knowledge in tax law that can help you solve complicated IRS problems & tax debt issues that would normally require a tax lawyer.  Contact Scott Allen with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. 480-926-9300 to help you get right with the IRS today! Don’t hire a tax attorney! Instead, why not hire an affordable Tax Debt Advisor who has been helping customers dealing with tax issues since 1977, and has helped solve over 113,000 tax debts.

Why Hire A Tax Attorney In Arizona?

Believe it or not, you actually don’t have to hire a tax attorney in Arizona when dealing with the IRS. Instead why not hire a Tax Debt Advisor who can do the same thing as a tax lawyer and who has been helping customers dealing with tax issues since 1977. His father and Scott Allen E.A. from Tax Debt Advisors has helped over 113,000 people settle their problems with the IRS and can help guide you through any tax situation you may be dealing with, including:

Why You Don’t Need A Tax Attorney

Here are the reasons of why you don’t need a tax attorney:

  • If you are making a decision full of fear and think you need a tax attorney for other than criminal or fraudulently filed returns, you will be seriously disappointed.  Attorneys are able to generate income by perpetuating fear.  Most of our clients who started with an attorney and switched to us mentioned always being intimidated with fear that something bad would happen if… and that if always is followed by another big retainer fee.
  • IRS resolution work is not rocket science.  It is common sense work that improves over time because of relationships established with the IRS and understanding their idiosyncrasies.  Attorneys will often scare clients into thinking that their legal training is necessary for a successful resolution.
  • Many clients think that they will get what they pay for and base the quality of the work on the amount they pay.  In most cases, an attorney will charge anywhere from 25% to over 400% more for the same exact service.  If you go for a consultation with an attorney consider getting a second opinion by calling me for a free initial consultation.  I love these appointments.

When To Hire A Tax Attorney?

A Tax debt advisor can help with almost everything a tax attorney can except criminal charges. If the IRS is pursuing criminal charges against you, you will need to hire a tax attorney.  Tax fraud and tax evasion are 2 of the most common reasons for an IRS investigation. IRS investigations are serious: 80% of defendants that go through a criminal investigation are sentenced to prison. This is one situation where a tax debt advisor cannot help you, you will have to hire a tax attorney.

Why You Should Hire An Enrolled Agent Vs. Hiring A Tax Attorney

View our recent blog postWhen is an IRS tax attorney in Phoenix necessary and when isn’t it?

1. Your tax problems might not be that bad – It doesn’t take a tax lawyer or rocket scientist to work with the IRS. Furthermore, legal training isn’t a necessity to handle most tax issues. Also, tax attorney’s will try to scare you into thinking that legal representation is necessary. That is not true! Let Tax Debt Advisors help solve your tax problems without instilling fear or requesting huge retainer fees for our services.

2. Get a 2nd Opinion – Some tax customers think that paying a higher fee will give them a higher quality services. That is false! Tax attorney commonly charge 400% more for the same services a tax debt expert can handle. There is literally no difference in the process besides you paying more money. We are not saying it is a bad idea to talk to a tax attorney but you should get a second opinion as well. At Tax Debt Advisors we offer free tax consultations.

3. Don’t Make A Decision Based On Fear – Do you think you need a tax attorney because you filed fraudulent tax returns, you might be disappointed. Tax lawyers generate income based off of fear. Most of our tax clients started with a tax attorney, only to find out that they try to intimidate you into thinking you have a bigger tax problem than you do. And, that’s almost always followed by a big retainer fee.

Feel Confident With Experienced Tax Representation

When I have looked back over the years, the one common factor in bad decision making on my part, is when I was overly influence due to fear.  I love the quote from one of the Star Wars movies that explains how Anakin became the evil Darth Vader—the quote, “It was fear that pushed me to the dark side.”  If you have already had a consultation with an attorney ask yourself one question, “Did he reduce my level of fear or just use it to get what he or she wanted?”  A good representative will always leave you feeling better, not fearful.  A great representative will focus on the 99% that can go right and the wrong ones will focus on the 1% that almost never happens.  When you are trying to decide if you need representation from an attorney consider taking the time to get a second opinion from me.  I know you will be glad you did!

5 Star Review: “Scott did an outstanding job helping my parents on their back due taxes. When I met him he was very professional and knowledgeable about how to approach the problem. Our issue took 9 months to resolve because of problems with how our taxes were filed (not his fault), but he stayed engaged and helpful the whole time even though we were very small clients for him. My parents don’t have to pay anything back to the IRS. It just amazing, it was a burden and now it’s such a relieve, such peace of mind. My dad comments that now he can sleep better without thinking about it. Thank you Scott!” Pilar L.

We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers for Statute of Limitations Issues

Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers

It may take four to six weeks after you file your returns for the IRS to assess the tax due including interest and penalties.  The date of the assessment starts the 10 year statute of limitations clock.  Once the statute expires, so does the IRS tax debt and the associated interest and penalties.  There are certain actions that can extend the statute such as filing an Offer in Compromise.

If you feel you have a Mesa AZ IRS tax debt that has been in collections for a long time, it is possible to get information from the IRS that will tell you exactly when the tax debt will expire.  Scott Allen E.A. has the expertise to advise you of all of your options to take advantage of having your IRS debt in Mesa Arizona expire under the statute of limitation rules.  Scott Allen E.A. offers a free initial consultation.

Scott Allen E.A. will often get asked if negotiating an IRS installment arrangement will add time to the statute of limitations. No, agreeing to an installment agreement for an old IRS debt will not add more time to the clock. That is exactly what was negotiated for Nicole and her ten years of back taxes owed ranging from 2009 thru 2019. Upon a detailed financial analysis Scott Allen E.A. knew he could negotiate a low $202 per month payment plan knowing full well that the debt will not be paid off before it expires. The IRS knows this as well. She will pay the $202 per month towards her back tax debt until they expire or get paid off (whatever comes first). Scott Allen E.A., one of Mesa Arizona’s top IRS problem solvers sees this happen all the time. This is why it is important to look at all the rules and options first before selecting one. View the IRS settlement agreement below for Nicole.

What happens when you file Mesa AZ back tax returns late ?

Mesa AZ Back Tax Returns

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors Inc in Mesa AZ helps taxpayers with filing back tax returns.

One of the best ways to prevent your “future” IRS debt from growing is to file your tax returns on time.  90% of the penalties the IRS charges are from filing your taxes late NOT from not paying your taxes.  Here are some of the negative things to be aware of if you file Mesa AZ back tax returns late.

If you fail to file your tax return on time the IRS can do what they call a SFR return meaning they file the taxes for you.  They usually do this in a way that benefits them and gives you a rather large tax debt.  If the IRS beats you to filing your taxes then those taxes can never be discharged in a bankruptcy.  If you are a Mesa AZ taxpayers who usually qualifies for the Earned Income Credit; you forfeit the credit if you do not file within 3 years of the due date.  Also, refunds expire after 3 years.  If you are a self-employed individual and do not file within 3 years of the due date you will lose out on those social security benefits.

Although the law states the IRS can prosecute you for not filing your back tax returns in Mesa Arizona, as long as you don’t refuse Scott Allen EA has never seen this happen.

Check out the adjustment made on a 2011 tax return for their client David. He failed to file his 2011 tax return so the IRS prepared an SFR return causing him to owe over $5,000 in taxes in which he really didn’t owe. After meeting with Scott Allen EA they gathered up the necessary information to prepare an accurate return to protest the IRS. As you can see from the notice below that David really only owed the IRS less than $600.

Mesa AZ back tax returns

With all that being said the best way to avoid large amounts of interest and penalties from piling on is to file your taxes on time.  Whether you need help with tax preparation or filing back tax returns Scott Allen EA can get you on the right track.  After everything is filed correctly and you have an IRS debt Scott Allen EA can also negotiate the best possible agreement or settlement allowable by law.  Don’t delay any longer.  Call 480-926-9300.

Challenge Phoenix AZ back tax returns the IRS files for you

Did you know the IRS can file Phoenix AZ back tax returns in your behalf?

Guess what?  It happens every single day.  If you delay filing your taxes the IRS can elect to file those back tax returns for you.  They refer to this as Substitute For Returns or SFR.  This was the case for a client of Tax Debt Advisors.  Marcus had not timely filed his 2007 1040 tax return.  When the IRS did it for him they came up with a tax bill that accumulated to $10,137 in taxes, interest, and penalties. When Marcus came in to see Scott Allen EA he went over the process step by step in getting the issue resolved and how to “protest” their tax filing.  It is not a matter of “if” the IRS will allow you to challenge their filings but rather “when”. The IRS does not look forward to doing this to taxpayers; they prefer they file the returns themselves.  Below you will see the adjustment made on Marcus’s 2007 tax return that Tax Debt Advisors was able to protest.  Now Marcus only owes the IRS $2,094 on his 2007 tax return.
