Biggest Challenge of Filing a Chandler AZ IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC)

Chandler AZ IRS Offer in Compromise

There is good news and bad news about the IRS OIC program.  Good news—everyone in Chandler AZ qualifies for an OIC.  Bad news—very few Chandler Arizona taxpayers can afford to pay the OIC amount.  There is also some Very Bad news—many times the OIC amount is more than the tax owed.

So when it comes to qualifying for a Chandler AZ IRS offer in compromise, don’t be discouraged thinking you have missed out on the best option.  The Good news is that most of the time the best option is not an OIC.  That is why you need a trusted Arizona professional who knows all the options and is working for your best interest not theirs and that includes theirs (the IRS).  Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has the experience and is worthy of your trust.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has been helping taxpayers for over 40 years—since 1977.  If you desire a free initial consultation, call 480-926-9300.

This can be a permanent or a temporary solution depending on their current financial status. Walter is a client of Tax Debt Advisors and this is what was negotiated for him to solve his back taxes. All nine years of his back taxes owed are compliant with the IRS now. Below is a copy of the settlement agreement.

Don’t ever just accept that the IRS is always right and you have little to no options to resolve it. That could not be further from the truth.

Come to find out this was income that was already reported under his business entity and the IRS was also claiming it as personal income as well because of how the 1099-M was reported.

Do I Need an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ if I get an IRS CP 2000 Letter?

Scott Allen EA or an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ

No, this is not a legal matter.  This letter is responding to income items not on your return that third parties have reported as paid to you.  If you agree with the amounts not reported you can simply sign the letter and mail it in.  The IRS will send a bill for the amount of tax owed on the items not reported.  If the items not reported have a cost basis such as stock sales you need to disagree with the CP 2000 letter and send in documentation showing the cost of the stock that was sold—in other words what you paid for the stock.  This will reduce the tax liability or if you had a lost on the sale of stock, it would result in a refund instead of a balance due. There are a number of other things that can cause the IRS to issue a CP2000 notice and its worth having a tax professional look into the matter.

Scott Allen E.A. is available for a free consultation if you have questions about your CP 2000 letter or need assistance in responding back to the IRS.  Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300.  He has come across many of these notices and has been successful in response to them.  I don’t believe using an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ is necessary to get this type on mater resolved. These IRS notice letters have deadlines associated with them so it is important to response timely to them.

Need help with a payment plan? After you get your IRS debt as low as legally possible consult with Scott Allen EA to discuss your payment plan options. See a recent example of a taxpayer who used Scott for his representation rather than an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ. View the approval notice below.

What is required to get a Release IRS levy Phoenix AZ?

Unfortunately, the IRS cant just be called up and asked for a levy release.  If it was that easy then the IRS would never get what it is asking for.  Even more then getting your money the IRS would rather see you in full compliance with them. Once you are in full compliance the IRS is required by law to stop all levy and garnishment action.  Compliance means two things.  First, you have to have all your tax returns prepared and filed.  So, if you have any unfiled tax returns those will need to be caught up to date.  Tax Debt Advisors can assist you in that process.  The other important step to getting you compliant is to be paying your current taxes.  Being current means to be making estimated tax payments if you are self employed or claiming the right amount of exemptions if you are a wage earner.  The IRS does not want you owing on future tax returns.  If you incur future debt then it will default any agreement you might have with the IRS.  Now that you are in compliance, the IRS will be willing to work out an agreement with you on your IRS debt.  And as long as you abide to that agreement you wont find your self needing a release IRS levy Phoenix AZ because (Congratulations) you are in compliance and will not have a levy there in the first place.

Mistakes Tempe Arizona IRS Tax Attorneys often make

Why using a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney for an IRS audit is a mistake:

When taxpayers get an audit notice from the IRS, panic attacks begin.  The first mistake that taxpayers make is that they did something wrong or ever worse, they did something criminal and they contact a IRS tax attorney in Tempe Arizona.  We have seen literally hundreds of clients who initially retained a Tempe AZ IRS Tax attorney to represent them in an audit.  Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney fees for these services averaged 1 to 3 times what we would have charged, if we felt an initial audit representation was even needed.

Most of the time we know before going into an IRS audit what the auditor will accept or reject.  If we know we will be successful in the audit we will take on the assignment and do it for significantly less than a Tempe Arizona IRS Tax Attorney.  If we know that the auditor will reject our proposal we will have auditor give us an assessment and file an appeal and make our “stand” there.  We do not charge to file an appeal and when we represent our clients in Appeals, we know that the Appeals Office has greater latitude to compromise on issues that the auditor does not.  The Appeals Office does not want to spend a lot of time on audits and is greatly understaffed for their work load.  Because of this, we have the opportunity to save our clients in two ways; less to the IRS and less for representation.  REMEMBER THE HIGHER UP YOU GO AT THE IRS, THE CLOSER YOU GET TO “SANTA CLAUS.”

Our fee audits generally runs from $1000 to $1,850.00.  A Tempe AZ Tax IRS Attorney will generally charge around $3,000 for an audit and another $3,000 for Appeals.  The bad news is that the taxpayer–YOU, often don’t know this when your retain an Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney and cannot afford to pay another $3,000 to be represented in Appeals.  Now what do you do?  That is when we get calls from frantic taxpayers who have exhausted most of their available money for IRS representation and basically gotten nothing.

Also, it is important to know the whole picture before starting representation work before the IRS.  For instance, we recently had a client hire an Arizona Attorney for audit representation.  He was successful with the audit bringing his debt assessment down from $80,000 to $50,000. But in the process he was getting billed by the Tax Attorney over $8,000 in fees.  Afterwards the client came to see us to see what his IRS options were from this point forward.  In evaluating his financial situation it was determined that the IRS would put his IRS debt into a Non Collectible Status and pay ZERO dollars on his debt.  Whether or not the client owed the IRS $50,000 or $80,000 he still would have qualified for Non Collectible status.  What it really worth $8,000 to fight the IRS in an audit?  Had the client met with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. instead of a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney we could have saved the client $8,000 in audit representation fees.  For this clients particular case he was charged by our company only $1,650 to have us qualify him for Non Collectible Status with the IRS.  As of today he is still in Non Collectible Status with the IRS however his is still making monthly payments to pay off his debt with the IRS Tax Attorney in Tempe he hired.  Don’t make costly mistakes.

Make the right choice at the beginning of this process.  Before meeting with a Tempe Arizona IRS Tax Attorney contact Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 and have him evaluate your IRS tax audit at no cost and see what he would recommend.  Doing it the right way from the beginning will save you two ways:  with the IRS and with retaining a trusted IRS representative.  We have represented clients all over Tempe, AZ which include the zip codes such as 85281 and 85283.

 

Below is an example (or testimonial) of how Scott Allen EA helped his client Joe settle seven years of back taxes into a extremely low month payment plan. Be represented RIGHT the FIRST time!

FILING BACK TAX RETURNS PHOENIX AZ

Tax Debt Advisors for Filing Back Tax Returns Phoenix AZ

It is important to remember that the IRS does not punish primarily for non payment but rather for non filing.  The penalties for failing to file a tax return are 10 times greater than the penalty for non payment.  That means the IRS is more interested in getting a paper return than paper money.

Most people fail to file because they don’t have the money to pay the tax.  That’s like putting your head in the sand to save you from the IRS lion.  If you file your returns on time you will save yourself lots of penalties and the IRS is much easier to work with if you have been filing each year.  Once a client has failed to file for one year, the average client does not seek help until six years later.  Why? Because it usually takes the IRS that long to levy their wages and/or bank accounts.  If the IRS was much more aggressive and competent, clients would save thousands of dollars in penalties and interest.

If you have lost your records or they were destroyed in a fire or flood, it is possible to reconstruct the returns.  The IRS keeps track of  W-2 information, interest and dividends paid, home mortgage interest, sales of stock and any K-1 and retirement income information.  Banks can provide copies of old bank statements and checks.  With a little effort, most returns can be reasonably reconstructed.  We always attach a note to the return explaining how we arrived at the numbers reported.

If absolutely no information is available, there is still an acceptable way for filing back tax returns Phoenix AZ.  This is based on economic reality.  We have a worksheet that determines how much you had to make to pay your bills every month.  We can file a tax return based on estimates if the estimates are reasonable.

Filing Back Tax Returns to fix a nine year old debt.

David owed the IRS for back taxes from 2012. They claimed he owed them over $4,000 on a tax return he never filed. How could this be so? The IRS went ahead and filed a tax return for him. This is called a substitute for return (SFR). The good news in all this is that David can still file a correct taxpayer filed return. That is exactly what Tax Debt Advisors, Inc did for him. As you can view from the notice below, the $4,000 debt was brought down to under $600. With the reduction in taxes owed, the interest and penalties were reduced for him as well.

Tax Debt Advisors Inc Reviews

You can’t have your cake and eat it too, sorry!  IRS Help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.

Virtually every prospective client believes that we are telling them the truth when it come to fixing their tax problem.  Yet many will go to get a second opinion.  That is fine, even expected.  Then the most amazing thing happens.  The client says, “I like you guys, trust you guys, but I like the other guy’s solution more than I like your solution.  Will you do the other guy’s solution?  If you will, I will use you.”

The big problem is that if the other guy’s solution would work, we would have advised you that in the first place.  We know the best solution that will work.  We will not take your money to do another guy’s solution that will not work.

So you know what happens, the prospective client goes to the other guy, and they are ripped off, then they come back and want us to do what we advised in the first place.  Many times the window of opportunity has been lost, or it is not as good because of changes in their financial ability to pay, or their bank accounts or wages have been levied.

Go with the guy you trust.  Believe the solution of the guy you trust instead of what you want to hear or believe.  Perhaps that is why the client got in trouble with the IRS in the first place.  Tax Debt Advisors Inc Reviews are actual notices of completed work for their clients they represent.

Do I Need a Peoria IRS Tax Attorney when I have no money to pay the IRS?

Peoria IRS Tax Attorney needed ?

The answer is no.

If you truly cannot pay the IRS any money on a monthly basis you would qualify for a currently non-collectible status (CNC).  Extensive financial proof will need to be submitted to prove that you are truly in a hardship and the situation is not temporary.  It is a relief to not have to make a monthly payment to the IRS but the debt is still there and interest and penalties are being added on a daily basis.  If you qualify for CNC status you should have an IRS professional determine if you can file an Offer in Compromise under the option—Doubt as to Collectability.

If you have assets that can be liquidated, the IRS will require that they be sold and the funds received used towards your IRS debt.  An example would be stocks or bonds.  If you can borrow from your 401k, you will be required to borrow and use those funds to pay down your IRS debt if you choose to do an OIC.

These options are complicated and difficult to explain without having your specific financial information.  Scott Allen E.A. provides a free consultation to discuss what you will need to provide him to help you decide the best way to resolve your tax debt.  Call Scott at 480-926-9300 and he will provide you the solution and peace of mind you are seeking. Instead of panicking and calling a Peoria IRS tax attorney, make the right choice and hire Scott Allen EA (Enrolled Agent) as your IRS power of attorney representative.
