Unfiled Tax Returns in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

What are the consequences of not filing current and back tax returns? 

Every year millions of Americans for various reasons fail to file their tax return.  Failure to file will be worse than the taxes you would have owed if you file on time within a short period.  The failure to file penalty is 5% per month.  The failure to pay penalty is ½% per month.  When you add the interest accruing to these two penalties, it doesn’t take long before they exceed the original tax due.

If you have a refund coming to you there are not penalties or interest.  However, refunds that are older than three years are forfeited.

The statute of limitations does not begin until an assessment of the liability.  The IRS only has three years in which to do an audit on a timely filed tax return.  This IRS has on limitations on audits until you file your return.

Tax years that could be discharged in bankruptcy if filed timely will have to wait at least two years before becoming eligible for discharge.

Valuable tax credits such as the earned income tax credit will be lost after three years.  These refunds cannot be used to off set taxes owed in other years.

There are negative effects during the collection settlement process if one has not filed back tax returns.  The IRS knows that anyone can get caught in a situation of not being able to pay their taxes, but there are few legitimate reasons why a taxpayer cannot file a return.  The IRS thinks that failing to file (5% penalty) is 10 times worse than filing to pay (1/2% penalty).

How do I file back tax returns?

It will depend on the situation.  If you are working with a revenue officer, the usual procedure is to file the returns directly to them.  If you are working with ACS, it may be possible to file the returns at the closest IRS office and get proof of filing.  Some Large Dollar Accounts out of Holtsville, New York will request that you mail returns to them.

Before I prepared any unfiled return, I will do a review of all documents that have been turned in to the IRS under your social security number for the tax year involved.  This prevents unnecessary audits for neglecting to report income that the IRS is aware of.  If a return is being mailed to the IRS, I always recommend mailing the return—Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested.   I also recommend only one return per envelope.  If you have several years to file it is best to put one return in each envelope before putting them into one big envelope that contains all of the returns being filed.  By labeling the tax year involved on the outside of the envelope, the IRS personnel who is opening you package will be alerted that there is more than one tax return being mailed to them.  This may seem like a silly procedure but it WORKS.

Do I need to file if I don’t owe any tax?

You may know that you don’t owe but the IRS may think differently.  Let me give you one example.  If you had on stock sale and lost money—you know you don’t owe.  But the IRS doesn’t know that.  They just know the amount of the sale, not the cost of the stock you sold.  So in this example if you sold stock for $100,000 that you paid $120,000, the IRS will calculate a gain of $100,000.  The best approach is to file every year, even if you don’t owe.  Many transactions such a purchasing a home will require you to provide copies of recently filed tax returns.  If the bank knows you have not been filing tax returns they may decide you are not worthy of a loan—even if you did not owe any taxes.

Below is an example of a success story on a client who had unfiled tax returns in Arizona that needed to be prepared (six years worth).  After getting the client in compliance a settlement was negotiated in his behalf. Due to his current financial status we showed the IRS that he could not afford to make any payments on the back taxes and that is exactly was was negotiated for him – Currently Non Collectible Status!

IRS Levy in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

IRS Levy—Everything you need to know before calling me for a free consultation.

What is an IRS levy?

A levy from the IRS is a legal seizure of your assets to pay off your tax debt.  A levy differs from a lien.  A lien is a legal claim against your assets.  A levy actually takes the asset to satisfy the IRS tax debt.

When does the IRS levy?

An IRS levy will only take place after they have assess the tax and sent you a notice and demand for payment, and you neglect or refuse to pay the taxes owed, and they sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice).

The notice is considered received when it is given to you by an agent, when it is mailed to your home or place of business or sent to your last known address by certified or registered mail.

What should I do when I receive an IRS notice of levy?

If you have been working with an IRS revenue officer or agent, you can request to speak to their manager to review you case and explain your position.  The next step would be to request a Collection Due Process Hearing with the Office of Appeals.  This must be done within 30 days of the date of the notice.

What should I be prepared to do when I meet with the Office of Appeals?

If you have paid all the taxes, provide proof of payment.  On occasion the IRS does apply tax payments to the wrong account or to the wrong type of tax or tax year.

If you are in bankruptcy when you receive the levy notice, your levy will be entitled to an automatic stay until you come out of bankruptcy.

If the IRS made an error in computing the tax owed, bring documentation that will show that the amount owed is less than the assessed balance.

If the IRS statute of limitations has passed, the levy will be considered null and void.

If you entered into a payment plan or some other collection option, the levy should be released pending proof that you have stayed in compliance with your tax filings and monthly installment arrangement.

If you feel that you are an innocent or injured spouse, provide proof of your reasons for seeking relief from the tax debt.

What if the IRS was wrong in levying my bank account?

You have 21 days to resolve your matter before funds are turned over to the IRS.  If you paid bank charges due to an IRS error, you may be entitled to a reimbursement.  You have 30 days to appeal your request to the Tax Court.

Can the IRS levy my state refunds?

Yes, under the State Income Tax Levy Program, the IRS may levy your state tax refund check.

Can the IRS levy my Social Security check?

Yes, the IRS can garnish up to 15% of your Social Security check through the Automated Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP).

How can I help you resolve an IRS levy?

The key to getting the greatest benefit from a representative is to provide the requested information quickly and making sure all information requested is provided at the same time.  One piece of information can hold up the levy release even though you have provided the other ninety-nine.  Information needs to be complete—most delays are caused by clients who are sloppy in providing all of the information requested.

If you owe the amount that has been levied, it is doubtful that the IRS will refund the amount taken.  The release will generally apply to any future amounts that would have been taken after the release is granted.

Make sure that you provide me with all of the facts.  Clients sometimes selectively “forget” to mention items that they do not want to disclose or are embarrassed about.  If you are uncomfortable providing all of the information needed to release you levy to your representative, you probably have the wrong person representing you or you are unwilling to face the realities of resolving your tax matter.
