10 Things to Remember When You Owe the IRS

10 Things To Remember When You Owe The IRS

The Restructuring and Reform Bill of 1998 for the IRS was a law that really put respect for the taxpayers back into the system. It forces the IRS to actually communicate with the public and grant due process rights to the taxpayers.

Below are 10 things to remember when you owe the IRS

When the IRS comes to collect, eventually you will have to face the music. If you begin to play games with a tax collector, the system has been designed to make your life horrible. Below are some important things to remember when you owe the IRS:

1. Don’t Ignore the IRS notices.

Most people will get into more trouble than bargained for just because they ignored the notices from the IRS. Some IRS notices are sent through certified mail, if you believe that you can ignore the notices by not going to pick them up, then you are wrong. Respond to the IRS each time.

2. The IRS has to explain your rights during your IRS interview.

The IRS Collection Process that was revised in 2015 states that you have the right to be represented and you have the right to be treated in a courteous and professional manner. If you don’t like how you are being treated, then you can stop that interview and ask to talk to a supervisor.

3. Before going to the IRS, spend time with a tax expert or accountant

This may be the best time that you have spent in a while. An expert will let you know how you could prepare to meet for a tax interview, how you should act, and make you aware when a revenue officer is trying to take advantage of you. Just remember the Revenue officers job is to collect money for the government. Furthermore, hiring professional bookkeeping and accounting services can help you avoid ever having problems with the IRS in the first place.

4. Never go to the IRS alone.

Collection interviews aren’t fun and you need representation. Chances are that you will have better results if you have representation.

5. The IRS isn’t Infallible.

The IRS was actually audited by the General Accounting Office and it looks like the IRS needs a bit of cleaning up. Often times, the IRS can’t track how much you actually owe, especially if you have been making regular payments. The IRS can make mistakes, so don’t take their word for everything.

6. You have due process.

The IRS can’t just take your home, bank account, business, car, or even do wage garnishes without making sure that they have given you a notice or an opportunity to challenge the IRS. When you challenge the IRS, everything stops.

You can take the IRS to court and they can’t collect until the judge makes a decision. You can tie their hands for years. The IRS isn’t going to tell you what to do or how you can protect yourself.

7. You are a possible innocent spouse.

Are you separated, widowed or divorced? Do you have tax issues that came from any former spouse? You may state yes, then you could get relief for being an innocent spouse. This could cause your whole tax bill being wrote off.  There are states that offer this as well.

8. If you don’t pay, you won’t go to jail.

No one will go to jail for owing taxes. You can go to jail for cheating on your taxes and you can go to jail for tricking a tax collector, but you can’t go to jail because you owe the IRS and your unable to pay.

9. You have options when you owe the IRS.

People who owe taxes whether to their state or the IRS, will have options. If you owe and can pay in full, then do so. However, if you can’t pay in full, 4 options may be for you:

  • Hardship suspension. This allows the IRS to temporarily leave you alone. Your account will be reviewed over time and even though the IRS leaves you alone, interest is accruing on the account is compounded daily.
  • Installment payments. The IRS will let you may monthly payments. The IRS will want the bill paid off in 3 years. You will need to fill out a financial statement and pursue a bank loan. Interest will accrue and is compounded daily.
  • It isn’t for everyone, but sometimes you could discharge your tax bill with Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Other chapters let you pay the bill off with monthly payments with no interest or little interest. Bankruptcy rules are complicated so talk to an attorney who understands tax and bankruptcy laws.
  • Offer in compromise. The IRS will accept the payment of a smaller sum for a large tax debt. Some states have similar procedures. If you do this and its accepted, all of your tax liens will be removed and you can start over. You need to talk to an attorney who specializes in tax laws.

10. Respect the tax collector power.

IRS tax collectors have more power than most in the federal government. They have very little rules. They can make life easy or miserable. Most success when dealing with a tax collector is done with communication in a prompt manner. They can do these items if you don’t pay your taxes:

  • Levy your bank account
  • Close your business
  • File a tax lien against you
  • Garnish your wages
  • Damage employment and business relationships
  • Seize and sell your home
  • Put you in a monthly payment plan that is too high
  • Assess you personally for corporate employment taxes
  • Go after third party transferees
  • Contact your friends, bankers, neighbors, and any relationship for business about tax liabilities.

Common Reasons To Hire A Tax Attorney

  • Income tax audits
  • Property tax issues
  • Offers-in-Compromise
  • Business Tax Issues

Why You Don’t Need A Tax Attorney

Here are the reasons and warning signs of why you don’t need a tax attorney.

Here are the warning signs:

  • If you are considering a tax attorney out of fear, and your situation is not caused by fraudulent or criminally filed returns, you’ll be greatly disappointed. Your fear allows attorneys to generate income. Many clients that began using our services after using a tax attorney often mention they were intimidated that something bad ‘could happen if…’. This ‘if’ is followed with large retainer fees, every time.
  • The IRS resolution work is easier to understand than most think, in most cases it is common sense. Having an established relationship improves the understanding with idiosyncrasies. It is common attorneys to use your fear to scare your more, while making you believe it is necessary to pay for their legal training to be successful.
  • Another common factor is clients believing they get what they pay for, and comparing the amount paid to the quality of service. In many situations, attorney’s charge between 25% and 400% or more for the same services. If you do consult a tax attorney, you should consider obtaining a second opinion by calling our office for a free consultation.

Feel Confident With Experienced Tax Representation

When looking back over the years, one of the most common factors we notice in poor decision making were those that allowed fear to influence their decision. There is a quote from a Star Wars movie that I have grown to love, as it explains how Anakin became Darth Vader – “It was fear which pushed me to the dark side.”

If you’ve already had an initial consultation with a tax attorney, the first thing you should do is ask yourself “Did they lower my fear, or use it to benefit their profits?” Good representatives leave clients feeling better about their situation, not scared. Great representatives pay attention to the 99% of positive scenarios, things that can go right. Poor representatives focus on the 1% of negative scenarios which rarely occur. When you are considering a representative, take the time to give me a call and get a second opinion, I know you will be glad.

Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation work

Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation by Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

Jay was defaulting on his payment plan and needed a new Phoenix AZ IRS Negotiation done. His biggest worry was having the IRS file a federal tax lien against his credit. It is understood that on most payment plans with the IRS they will file a tax lien to protect their interest.  There are some exceptions to that rule however. If you owe the IRS in total less then $50,000 you can prevent an IRS tax lien. Once a federal tax lien has been filed it cannot be removed until the debt is paid off in full, settled in an offer in compromise, or been on a payment plan and now owe less then $25,000.

Because Jay had defaulted his installment arrangement with the IRS he was at risk to them placing a tax lien against him.  However, with a proper strategy this could be avoided.  This is exactly what Tax Debt Advisors did for him.  Given Power of Attorney, Scott Allen EA contacted the IRS right away to hold off collection activity so time could be allowed to get the taxpayer back into compliance. Updating the financial information it was determined that they could get a new payment plan reestablished as a direct debit arrangement for $700 per month. At this amount the IRS did not file a federal tax lien and the taxpayers can continue on with their Phoenix AZ IRS negotiation.
