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.

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.

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.

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?

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc also specializes in the filing of back tax returns. Whether you need one return or seven tax returns filed Scott can help. 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.

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.

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.

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.
