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

Everything you always wanted to know about an IRS tax lien and a little more.

What is an IRS Tax Lien? 

A tax lien filed by the IRS is public notice to creditors that you owe IRS taxes.  This will cause your credit report to decline significantly.  A lien is also a claim against all real and personal property that you own that you have title to—mainly you home and vehicles.  A lien prevents you from selling an asset like your home and receiving any proceeds from the sale of your home until the amount owed on the lien is satisfied. 

Why is a Tax Lien filed? 

A tax lien is filed only after the IRS has made a bona fide attempt to collect the taxes owed.  Several notices have to be sent warning you about the IRS ability to file a lien against you.  These would include a CP-501, CP-503 and a CP-504.  Each letter gets more threatening and the final notice also warns that the IRS may levy your bank accounts and/or garnish your wages.   

Negative Impact of an IRS Tax Lien?

You will be denied credit when applying for a loan on major purchases such as a vehicle or a home.  Increasingly employers will check your credit before making an offer of employment.  A tax lien will definitely limit your chances of being hired.  An IRS tax lien will prevent you from getting a licensed for many professions such as being a financial planner.  Even if you clear up an IRS tax lien, it was continue to be on your credit report long after you have resolved the problem.   

How are IRS Tax Liens Released? 

Your tax lien will be removed when the tax, including interest and penalties has been paid in full. 

If you have an Offer in compromise accepted and pay the agreed amount, your tax lien will be released. 

Once a lien has been filed, you have the right to file an appeal to have a hearing.  If you are successful the lien will be removed but the lien will still appear on your credit report.   

There is a 10 year Statute of Limitations on IRS tax liens.  Tax liens are self releasing and the release date is on the original notice of IRS tax lien you received. 

Will filing a Bankruptcy release an IRS Tax Lien? 

No.  An IRS tax lien will survive bankruptcy and continue to be attached to your property until the statute of limitations is satisfied. 

Why Call Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.? 

IRS tax lien representation will be handled exclusively by Scott Allen E. A.  I know how seriously tax liens can wreck havoc on your daily life.  The key is to call me before a tax lien is filed.  I will work exclusively with you until your tax matter is resolved.

Do I Need a Glendale AZ IRS Tax Attorney For Trust Fund Recovery Penalties?

The IRS is very aggressive in trying to collect on Trust Funds associated with payroll taxes withheld from employee’s paychecks.  However, this is not a legal matter and is not considered a criminal act and does not require the services of a Glendale AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  Most employers that do not pay in their payroll tax withholdings are struggling with their business and try to keep the business afloat by “borrowing” these funds with the intent to pay them back at a later date when business improves.

Unfortunately most businesses do not improve enough to pay the taxes with the penalties added.  When the business closes, these taxes are eventually reassigned over to the individual(s) responsible for paying the taxes.  This will include the owners and anyone associated with payment of taxes.

There are two areas of IRS representation work that may be needed with regard to Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.  If you feel that the IRS is unjustified in targeting you for payment of the taxes and penalties, we are able to evaluate your responsibility or lack thereof.  This is usually a black and white matter, but the IRS takes a “shot gun” approach and tries to include as many people without really knowing who is truly responsible.

The second area is making a settlement with the IRS if you are in fact responsible for the payment of the tax and penalties.  There are several options available to settle with the IRS for less than the amount owed, depending on your financial ability to pay.

Scott Allen E.A. has expertise in both areas dealing with Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.  Call Scott today and schedule a free consultation at 480-926-9300 to get an evaluation of what your options are.  Scott Allen E.A. will put your mind at ease knowing that you are facing this serious IRS problem with a professional who has successfully negotiated many favorable settlements with the IRS on Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.

Tax Debt Advisors Inc has successfully work with struggling taxpayers in the 85303, 85308, and 85301 areas of Glendale Arizona.  Before meeting with a Glendale AZ IRS Tax Attorney give me a call to discuss your options with the Internal Revenue Service.

Thanks and make today a great day for you!

Offer in Compromise using a Scottsdale AZ IRS Tax Attorney: Is it best for you?

Is a Scottsdale AZ IRS Tax Attorneys better at filing an IRS Offer in Compromise.

Apparently taxpayers need to be careful not to rely on the title “attorney” when retaining one to file an offer in compromise.  Three of the largest companies representing taxpayers–JK Harris, Tax Masters and Roni Lynn Deutch have all filed bankruptcy and shut their doors leaving hundreds of thousands of taxpayers stranded without resolving their IRS matter and unable to refund their money.  All of these firms and many like them all advertised using Arizona IRS Tax attorneys.  The same is true of most if not all “out of state” companies and companies with 800 numbers that tout the same lies and dupe taxpayers out of outrageous amounts of money and provide no service–ZERO !

The latest firm to go under, Roni Lynn Deutch, Governor Jerry Brown called her operation a “heartless scheme.”

A former employee said, “In the entire time I worked for RONI DEUTCH I never saw a client of mine or any of my associates get approved for an OIC. I did see several clients drop kicked for various BS after they paid. Once the money was in no one cared what happened to the client.”

Another employee had this to say, “the truth is I was one of Roni Deutch’s “Tax Directors” and I have read the complaint AG Brown filed. It is all true. I was trained (by Russel Deutch) to “Help” clients do the math so they would appear to qualify for an OIC. Made up expenses like child care paid to a “relative” or extra cords of wood in the winter to supplement energy costs, ask any former “Tax Director” and they will all tell the same story of scam after scam. I gave sworn testimony in the New York case; I sure hope I get the chance to testify against this dirt bag again.”

And finally, one more employee said, “Roni pays big, big bonuses for exceeding quota. (at least she did while I worked for her) No one cared how you did it while I was there; as long as the $$$ rolled in it was all Las Vegas and Cocaine …..if you were in the right crowd, or so I’ve heard.”

So when it comes time to consider who to choose to represent you be sure to select someone who you personally meet.  Not every Scottsdale AZ Tax IRS Attorney is a schemers but to rely on the title IRS Tax Attorney in Scottsdale can be one of the biggest mistakes you can make about who represents you before the IRS.  Our recommendation is that you schedule to meet with Scott Allen E.A.  He can be reached at 480-926-9300.   He offers free consultations to meet with you and discuss what you may and may not qualify for settlement.  So, before meeting with an IRS Tax Attorney Scottsdale, AZ in the areas of 85256, 85260, or 85251 call Scott with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.  We are a company with over 40+ years of experience of dealing with the IRS and filing acceptable IRS Offer in Compromises.

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!
