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.

Scott was able to hold off the IRS, get his recent back tax returns filed, and negotiate it all into a nice low $249/month payment plan.

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.

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.

Currently Non-Collectible Status negotiated!

Mercedes and her husband were in dire need to an aggressive negotiation with the IRS. They called Scott Allen EA and got that relief. Don’t take our word for it but read the actually approval letter from the IRS below. Six years of IRS debt negotiated into a low $0.00/month payment plan.

Chandler, AZ IRS Tax Attorneys: What to watch out for..Must Read!

Avoid Getting Ripped off by Chandler AZ IRS Tax Attorneys on your IRS Problem

Most taxpayers have a fear of being a victim of IRS collection procedures. This does occur on occasion but the real fear is being ripped off by Chandler AZ IRS Tax Attorneys who have the advantage of using intimidating scare tactics.  Over the last 45 years we have seen this occur thousands of times.  One example might be representative of what occurs all too often.  We had a client who received a letter in the mail regarding a “Collection Due Process Hearing.”  Those four words scared our client to call an IRS Tax attorney in Chandler Arizona who took advantage of our client by charging her $2,500 to handle the matter.  All that was involved was signing a one page form and mailing it in.  Then a few weeks later he called her to tell her of the date of the hearing and asked for more money.  She didn’t have any more money and contacted us.  When we checked into it there was no reason at all for the Chandler AZ Tax attorney to file for a collection due process hearing.  There was no reason to dispute the tax due and we promptly put our client into a non-collectible status for less than $585.  Clients often think because they have an IRS problem they have committed a crime.  This is not the case in almost 100% of the time.  So why burden yourself financially and emotionally with someone who will take advantage of your using scare tactics and making you feel that you are a criminal.  The reverse is often true–the Chandler Tax IRS attorney who is scamming you out of your hard earned money.

If she had continued working with this Chandler IRS tax attorney, and the story is the same with most IRS tax attorneys Chandler AZ, she would have ended up spending over $8,000 and possibly not have ended up not needing to pay the IRS a monthly amount.  Our company has resolved over 113,000 IRS debts.  We are a family business and it is owned and operated by the second generation, Scott Allen E.A.  Contact Scott and get a straight answer.  If he can help you, you can be assured that he will do the job right the first time at a fair fee. Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300 and can generally schedule you for an appointment within 48 hours and if you leave a message, he will promptly return the call within the hour.  We have represented tax clients all over Chandler, AZ including such zip codes as 85286 and 85224.  Remember, before calling a Chandler Arizona IRS Tax Attorney please allow Scott Allen, E.A. with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. to meet with you for a free 1 hour consultation.

File Back Taxes Gilbert just like David had

File Back Taxes Gilbert

Are you an Arizona resident embarrassed that you need to file back taxes Gilbert? Don’t be! Probably 1/3 of everyone out there has some sort of IRS tax problem or just got over one. One thing we have learned in our over 40 years of experience is that every IRS problem is solvable.

David is a small business owner working 60 hours a week and fell behind on his taxes. As a homeowner with equity he was worried and stressed the IRS would want to take his house away. He needed to get this business (C-Corp) and personal taxes all caught up for five years.

Scott Allen EA was able to help him communicate with the IRS on his behalf, organize his records, and prepare his personal and business taxes one year at a time until he was all caught up. It took two months but it was accomplished without any problems or issues from the IRS.

Once all the back taxes were filed Scott Allen EA collected David’s financial information (i.e. income, expenses, debts, & assets) and evaluated his ability to pay back his taxes to the IRS.

See the approval letter from the IRS on our negotiation work. Mission complete! If you need to file back taxes Gilbert, whether it is for one year or seven years call and speak with Scott today.

Shhh…I am a Delinquent Taxpayer. Who do I call?

Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney ?

First, being a delinquent taxpayer is not a legal issue and does not require the help of a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  However, being a delinquent taxpayer can cause the IRS to close down your business, breakup marriages, damage your health, and cause many sleepless nights.  Most taxpayers who miss filing one year for a “good reason” become paralyzed the following year and neglect to file a second year.  Once the IRS has not contacted them, the fear of being contacted by the IRS and facing the problem is too much for most taxpayers.  Most taxpayers fear the terrible penalties and interest the IRS adds to the tax liability and are unaware of IRS programs in place to help get taxpayers back in good standing.  Many taxpayers ignore the IRS until their bank account or paychecks have been levied.  Now taxpayers have to face their problem to keep their paycheck and sometimes even their job.  Many times their first thought is that they need a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney when in fact they don’t.

It is critical that you are certain that you are working with the right person to get you bank on track with the IRS.  Work with someone like Scott Allen E.A. in Mesa AZ who has been successful at resolving hundreds of IRS tax debts.  Scott can be reached for a private consultation at no cost.  Call him today at 480-926-9300.

Terry was strapped with a monthly payment plan on her Mesa AZ IRS debt of over $1,500/month. She met with Scott Allen (an Enrolled Agent) who was able to reevaluate her financial situation and successful cut her monthly IRS payment in half.

IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona: When should I consult with an attorney?

When should I consult with a Tax Attorney?  IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.

Here is a summary of when using an IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona is needed:

  • If you want to bring suit against the IRS—In 40+ years we have never seen this happen.
  • If you want to challenge an IRS ruling before the US Tax Court—In 40+ years we have never seen a situation that warranted this type of action.
  • If you are under criminal investigation by the IRS.  This is one situation where you need to use a tax attorney who specializes in criminal cases before the IRS.—We have referred less than 7 clients in 40+ years to an attorney for criminal representation.
  • If you have committed tax fraud and need to have the protection of attorney client privileges.

Probably the most important consideration is to make sure you are actually using a Tax Attorney, not an attorney that has decided to do some tax work.  A legitimate IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona is certified in the specialization of tax representation.

Secondly, try to get a referral from someone who does regular tax representation work for an attorney.  Your chances of getting the right attorney are much better with a referral than choosing an attorney with the highest “yellow page” ad.

Scott Allen E. A. – Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.

Again, the majority of IRS cases do not need a tax attorney. Because that is the case you should consider Scott Allen EA (an Enrolled Agent) of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. His firm has been representing taxpayers for over 40 years.  Below is an example of a client who thought he needed to hire an expensive IRS tax attorney in Arizona because he owed the IRS nearly $200,000 in back taxes. Instead, Scott was able to get him on the right side of the IRS and negotiate an aggressive payment plan with them. Every case has different results but what Scott Allen EA can promise is that if you are a payment plan candidate he will negotiate the best terms the law allows.

Do I need an Arizona IRS Tax Attorney to file back tax returns?

No, filing delinquent tax returns is not a legal matter and shouldn’t require hiring an Arizona IRS Tax Attorney.  Consider Hiring Scott Allen E.A. instead. However, you should be aware of some of the negative consequences of filing back tax returns:

  • After three years past the due date, if you have a refund, it is lost and cannot be applied towards any balances due.
  • The IRS has a 10 year statute of limitations in which to collect on assessed taxes.  However, the statute does not start until your returns have been filed and assessed.
  • If you refuse to file back tax returns there can be legal consequences—but even an Arizona IRS Tax Attorney is not going to be able to get the IRS to agree to not filing a back tax return.
  • If you have not filed for a few years the IRS will file a Substitute for Return (SFR) which is prepared in the most negative way possible.  If this has already occurred, it can be corrected by filing a correct return at the Service Center that prepared the SFR.
  • The longer you wait to file a delinquent return the more penalties and interest will be added to the tax due.  If you have a refund, there will be no penalties or interest added.
  • You cannot qualify for any IRS settlement programs until you are in compliance with filing all of your back tax returns.

Scott Allen E.A. can be reached for a free consultation to discuss filing your back tax returns at 480-926-9300.  Scott has filed many SFR protests that have reduced the tax liability as well as the interest and penalties. He will make today a great day for you.

Below is a recent example of Scott Allen E.A. properly representing a taxpayer. Kathleen was several years behind on her taxes and Scott was able to assist in her getting those returns prepared and all caught up. Once she was filing compliant a payment plan negotiation took place. Her $100,000+ IRS debt was settled into one low monthly payment plan of $508 per month. How about that!

Removing IRS tax interest: Can it be done?

It is not Necessary To Use A Scottsdale AZ IRS Tax Attorney to Remove Interest

The IRS takes a tough position on removing interest and therefore it is rare that our firm will charge a fee requesting interest abatement.  Interest can be abated if it is due to an error by an employee of the IRS.  It is much harder to seek interest abatement claiming the IRS employee delayed the process of processing the tax assessment unless it is obvious the “ball was dropped” when your case was transferred to another employee at the IRS.

If a return is amended and the balance is lowered, the interest due will also be lowered along with any penalties.  If a return is filed to lower a balance due on an IRS substitute for return the same will be true.  If you want a correct assessment of whether you should seek professional guidance on interest abatement, call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 and schedule a free consultation to determine if your case has merit.

Take a look at what Scott Allen E.A. was able to do for his client, Yolanda. Thru the proper abatement process he was able to get the IRS to abate $13,019 of penalties and $243 of interest. It is important to know that not every case is the same and not everyone qualifies for abatement. To find out if you are a candidate or if you have other issues with the IRS that needs representation give Tax Debt Advisors, Inc a call today. They have been solving IRS problems since 1977.
