Do I Need a Phoenix AZ IRS Tax Attorney When I Get a Final Notice of Intent to Levy?

No, this is not a legal matter and does not require the attention of a Phoenix AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  You have 30 days to enter into a settlement or file IRS Form 12153 to request a Collection Due Process hearing.  In most cases you will want to determine your best way to settle your tax debt and then if it is not resolvable in a reasonable manner, then file IRS Form 12153.

Scott Allen E.A. has prevented hundreds of “Final Notices” from going to the point of levying taxpayer’s property, including pay checks and bank accounts.  Scott knows all the settlement options that will apply to your particular tax matter.  Scott Allen E. A. is available for a free consultation at 480-926-9300.  Call today to prevent the IRS from taking actions that are more difficult to correct later.  Make sure the IRS representative you choose reviews all options available before making a decision.  Scott Allen E.A. vs. Phoenix AZ IRS Tax Attorney:  What decision will be best for you?

Scott Allen E.A. was able to help a client out facing these challenges. Mauri was recovering from a recent divorce, raising his kids, and working on rebuilding his real estate career. He owed the IRS over $100,000 for several years of back taxes as you can see from the notice below. He too thought he needed to hire a Phoenix AZ IRS Tax Attorney to block the IRS from levy and garnishment actions. However, he learned quickly that wasn’t the case. Scott who is an Enrolled Agent was able to block collection action by the IRS and negotiate the best possible settlement allowable by law. Mauri qualified to put all his back tax debt into a currently non collectible status. Months later he is still paying ZERO on his back tax debt.

Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney: Is it right? or is there a better alternative?

Why using a Mesa AZ IRS Tax attorney is not the best way to get your IRS matter resolved

  • Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorneys are far too expensive for almost 98% of the IRS settlement options available.
  • We have heard complaints from clients coming to us that they felt intimidated when asking a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney questions about their IRS case.
  • The strategy of most IRS Tax Attorneys in Mesa AZ, not all, but most is to bill you so much up front that they hope you run out of money before they actually have to solve your IRS problem.
  • IRS Tax Attorneys in Mesa AZ are generally very condescending to CPA’s and E.A.’s who in most cases have resolved far more IRS problems then they have.
  • Mesa Arizona IRS Tax Attorneys are needed in criminal matters.  They often make potential clients feel like they have an IRS matter that is or could become criminal in nature.  The fact of the matter is that is the last 40+ years we have only seen a few criminal cases and have immediately referred them to a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  Not one case evolved into a criminal case as we were working on resolving the matter—NOT ONE !
  • Mesa Arizona Attorneys are needed when filing a bankruptcy is the best settlement option.  However, working first with us you will be sent to the Mesa attorney only when your taxes are dischargeable in a bankruptcy.  We have seen literally thousands of bankruptcies filed by attorneys in Mesa before the taxes were dischargeable.  There is a two and a three year rule and Mesa attorneys are not willing to take the chance that you will come back to them later and often file the bankruptcy too soon and only remove consumer debt.
  • Many Mesa AZ IRS Tax attorneys are not able to prepare tax returns or are not as experienced in preparing returns as an E.A. or CPA.

So what should you do?  If you are budget conscious but still feel you, or, should I say still fear you need to use an attorney or that any attorney will provide better service, get your second opinion first with Scott Allen E.A. Then you will be able to compare intelligently the services provided and fees to complete the necessary work.  The choice will be obvious without any fear that you have made the wrong choice.  Scott is available for an in office or phone consultation.  Call him today at 480-926-9300 and put your mind at ease!

Here is a recent success a client had by using Scott Allen EA instead of a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney. William owed a ton of back taxes and had no way of paying anything back to them. Based upon his current financial situation, his employment, and everything going on in the new “Covid-19 world” he would qualify for a currently non collectible status. That is exactly what Scott Allen EA did for him. Click on the IRS settlement approval letter below.

Lower your tax liability: Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney not needed

Resolve IRS debts without needing a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Some common methods of reducing your IRS tax liability are:

*   Request a record of account and verify that all of your payments were received and credited correctly to the tax year in question.  The IRS will always apply payment to the oldest year first.  If you want your payment to go to a specific year, it must be noted on the check and on the correspondence accompanying the payment.  Occasionally the IRS will apply your payment to someone else’s account in error or to a tax debt you owe such as your corporation payroll tax liability instead of your individual liability.

*   If the IRS filed a substitute for return, file a correct return that shows that you owe less than the return prepared by the IRS.  Filing a return to reduce the liability on a substitute for return or to amend a return previously filed does not necessarily increase your chances of being audited.  If you amend a previously filed return, submit proof of your changes along with the amended return.  This will show the IRS that you have proof of your changes and will reduce the chances of being audited.

*   File IRS form 843 to request that penalties be abated.

If you are interested in a free consultation to determine if your tax liability can be reduced, call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300. He is not a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney but rather a federally licensed Enrolled Agent able to handle your tax matter.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Do I need a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney for my IRS problem?

Reading this blog will be a win-win situation for you.  First, you do not need a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney to settle your IRS debt.  Second, Tax Debt Advisors, Inc is not a law firm.  They are a tax firm that specializes in unfiled back tax returns and negotiating IRS debts.  Scott Allen EA will always share this one analogy: Your tax problem is not a “DUI hit and run”, it is a “delinquent parking ticket”.  Just as you wouldn’t find the need to hire an attorney for your parking ticket, you do not need to hire one for your back tax debt problem.  Using the services of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc will result in fees 25%-400% less then what an attorney would charge you to do the same work.

View the IRS notice attached to see what Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc was able to negotiate for his client, Mary.

 

Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney

Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney

Mary was going through a very difficult time when she first came in to meet with Scott Allen, EA.  She was newly divorced and had discovered that she was entangled in an IRS nightmare that her ex-husband left her to deal with.  As you can see by the notice she was behind on several back tax returns that needed to be filed with the IRS.  She didn’t know how to where to make quarterly estimated tax payments.  And, the IRS was threatening to place a levy on her only source of income.

Scott Allen EA was able to get Power of Attorney representation for Mary and put a stop to all enforcement action by the IRS. Year by year they went through the tax preparation process beginning with 2008.  They were able to get her caught up all the way through the 2014 tax return.  Along with that, Mary is also caught up on her estimated tax payment requirement for 2015.  Surprisingly, she is actually looking forward to preparing and filing her 2015 tax return as she knows she does not have to write them a big check April 15th.  This is the most important and critical step with the IRS.  If they see you making estimated tax payments they can tell that you are trying to correct the matter.  Without that being done a settlement for Mary either might not have been possible or she wouldn’t have gotten as good of a result.

Just the other day Mary called with excitement to let Scott Allen EA know she made the January 28th monthly payment on time and online!  She settled her IRS debt on a $249/month payment plan and could not be more relieved knowing the IRS isn’t going to zap her wages or bank account.

Before you begin the process of negotiating a payment plan with the IRS you first want to verify everything is in compliance.

One of his clients came in with a couple unfiled tax returns and the IRS garnishing his retirement income (yes, the IRS can garnish your retirement or social security income).  They were taking his money and applying it to a tax debt on his 2009 tax return that he had never filed.  Actually, the IRS filed it for him giving him no room for expenses or deductions.  As you can see they took over $6,000 of his income to a debt that should never have been there in the first place.  What did Scott Allen EA do?  To sum it up he was able to get an IRS power of attorney authorization to represent him, contact the IRS to “gather up the facts”, prepare and file his missing returns, and get a stop to the garnishment.  Lastly, he was able to get the IRS to refund the money back to him within a reasonable period of time.
