Don’t let the IRS take anymore of your paycheck then they have to.  Call Scott Allen EA for a free consultation to meet with him on what needs to be done to stop your Mesa AZ IRS wage garnishment.  Once he has all the information required to stop the IRS garnishment Scott will get it release within 24 hrs.

Part of getting the release of your IRS wage garnishment in Mesa AZ is to enter into one of their settlement options.  There are 5 different options available to you.  You will be reviewed on the pros and cons of each option. Dont wait until your options and finances are limited by the IRS. Call Scott today at 480-926-9300 or visit his website at www.releaseIRSlevy.com.

 

Mesa AZ IRS Wage Garnishment Prevented in 2019

The best tactic someone can engage in when dealing with a Mesa AZ IRS wage garnishment is to be proactive with it. Contact the IRS before it happens. Let me give you an example:  Michael had not filed tax returns in 14 years and owed the IRS over $200,000 in back taxes. Someone might think this is an ideal case for the IRS to “throw the hammer” and garnish wages or levy bank accounts. If Michael was reactive this would be the case. But, because he hired competent honest representation he was able to protect his wages and negotiate a favorable agreement with them on his large IRS debt. View the IRS approval agreement below.

Mesa AZ IRS Wage Garnishment

Mike is in a “Case Closed – Currently not Collectible status“. As long as he remains in compliance with his future tax liabilities he does not have to pay a dime on his back taxes. This is a great relief for a struggling taxpayer.  If you would like to discuss your case or see what options are available to you with your IRS debt or unfiled tax returns call and speak with Scott Allen EA today. He can be reached at 480-926-9300.

Does the IRS Offer One Time Forgiveness?

Does the IRS Offer One Time Forgiveness?

IRS One Time Forgiveness

Yes, the IRS does offers one time forgiveness, also known as an offer in compromise, the IRS’s debt relief program. Have tax debt and wondering if one time forgiveness can help? If so, this post should help! Read below about programs the IRS has to help resolve your tax debt and what Tax Debt Advisors can do to help you get it done easily.

Does The IRS Offer A Tax Debt Relief Program?

The short answer is “Yes“! At any given time, there are nearly 1 million U.S taxpayers that owe the IRS. Although the IRS attempts to collect every cent that taxpayers owe the government, the reality is that they just do not have the resources for pursuing every individual person in debt. However, IRS collections remains a very stressful situation.

The IRS has tax debt relief programs, like the Fresh Start Program, available that taxpayers can take advantage of when owing back taxes. These programs not only provide a little help towards taxpayers, but it lightens the IRS’s workload. You may not be required to pay the entire amount owed, good news right?

Tax Debt Forgiveness

There are commercials that come on late at night promising to get you out of debt with tax debt forgiveness, even when thousands are owed to the IRS. Although, the reality is there is no straight debt forgiveness program.

Although, depending on the criteria of your situation you may be able to wipe your tax debt, set up an offer in compromise or payback with an installment agreement. For instance, by law the IRS is unable to collect a debt older than 10 years. Therefore, if your tax debt is from over 10 years ago, it should be forgiven, as the government is not legally able to collect the debt.

In addition, the IRS typically does not collect a debt with a low Realistic Collection Potential (RCP). An account is stated to have low RCP if the following factors are true:

  • Low income amount
  • No way to make payments
  • No assets that can be sized or liquidated, such as real estate or bank accounts

If any of the above criteria are met, you may find that your account is marked RCP. Although this is not technically a debt forgiveness, the IRS simply does not attempt to collect the debt owed, usually.

Also, the Non-Collectable Status restricts the IRS from collecting a debt, similar to the RCP. What this means is, you do not have the assets or money available to pay the debt. This program was designed with the concept of providing taxpayers enough time to earn the money or get a higher income to pay on the debt.

Can The IRS Collect After 10 Years?

No“, once a non-collectible account reaches the 10-year mark, the debt can’t be collected. In some situations non-collectible status collides with the amount of time the IRS is able to legally collect the debt. Therefore, once a Non-Collectable account reaches the 10-year mark, the debt can no longer be demanded by the IRS.

Finally, when a taxpayer files for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the IRS is unable to pursue a debt collection against the individual. Although rare, there are situations where bankruptcy allows for tax debt forgiveness.

The IRS cannot make contact with you or try to collect on a debt during a pending case. If a court rules a tax debt has to be forgiven, the IRS is no longer able to pursue future action against the past tax debt.

What Is The Fresh Start Program With The IRS?

The Fresh Start Program is a collection alternative that allows individuals and businesses, in most cases, to settle their tax debt for less than they owe. This makes it easier for back tax payers to settle their tax debt and get a fresh start. Although, the required criteria to get debt fully erased can be very time consuming and stringent. For those wanting to settle debts in a timelier manner, the IRS’ Fresh Start Program is an option.

Under the Fresh Start Program, the Partial Payment Installment Agreement option is the most used. With the PPIA you are allowed to setup an affordable payment plan for your account, which runs until the debt is fully paid or the debt account has reached the 10-year mark.

IRS Fresh Start Program Qualifications

  • Must be unemployed for 30 consecutive days
  • If you are filing a joint return, you/spouse must meet 1 of the qualifications
  • Self-employed individuals with a drop in income of 25% or more
  • Tax debt must be less than $50,000

Read more about IRS Fresh Start Qualifications

Offer In Compromise Allows To Negotiate With The IRS

Another option you may also choose to pursue an Offer in Compromise, which enables you to settle a debt. The following factors are used to determine if an account qualifies:

  • Are in compliance with IRS
  • Owe new debt
  • Cannot or have no intention to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Never turned down for OIC before

You can use the IRS website to file for an Offer In Compromise, or have a tax professional like Tax Debt Advisors assist you with the process. You can check the IRS website to see if your qualify for OIC

The IRS acknowledges that they are unable to collect every amount of a delinquent account, with nearly a million taxpayers owing a debt. You have the potential for having your debt reduced, or possibly erased with one of the several debt relief programs available.

Installment Agreements Allow You To Set Up A Payment Plan

Most of the time the IRS will allow you to set up an installment agreement in order to pay back your tax debt over time. The terms of your payback agreement are determined by your budget to pay each month, how much you own and your previous filing history. 

Before you accept any repayment plan, make sure that you can afford to pay it on time, every time. Late payments or missing payments can get your agreement canceled and you will have to start over again. You can only get installment agreement if you own less than $50,000 in 2017 and the maximum payback period is 6 years.

January 2019 Case Update:

Another accomplishment by Scott Allen EA. Myra had a handful of unfiled tax returns that she did not file. Several years ago the IRS caught that and filed substitute returns in her behalf. As you can see if you view the letter below…their number was much higher then our number. This is why its important to do a complete overview of anyone’s IRS account before filing any tax returns or negotiating any settlements. By preparing a corrected and accurate tax return the taxpayers saved over $50,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties. WOW!

Can A Tax Attorney Really Help?

Why You Should I Tax Debt Advisor Vs. Hiring a Tax Attorney?

Tax Debt Advisors have great experience in settling debts with the IRS. Choosing a tax debt advisor instead of a tax attorney offers many benefits including:

  • More affordable services
  • Tax attorney typically charge 100-400% more for the same services a tax debt advisor could do
  • Tax debt advisors don’t use fear tactics to make you think the situation is wose than it is
  • Settle debt faster with simple tax debt solutions

We are not a tax attorney firm, rather, a tax debt specialist with expert knowledge in tax law that can help you solve complicated IRS problems & tax debt issues that would normally require a tax lawyer.  Contact Scott Allen with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. 480-926-9300 to help you get right with the IRS today! Don’t hire a tax attorney! Instead, why not hire an affordable Tax Debt Advisor who has been helping customers dealing with tax issues since 1977, and has helped solve over 108,000 tax debts.

Why Hire A Tax Attorney In Arizona?

Believe it or not, you actually don’t have to hire a tax attorney in Arizona when dealing with the IRS.

Scott Allen E.A. from Tax Debt Advisors has helped over 108,000 people settle their problems with the IRS and can help guide you through any tax situation you may be dealing with, including:

Why You Don’t Need A Tax Attorney

Here are the reasons of why you don’t need a tax attorney:

  • If you are making a decision full of fear and think you need a tax attorney for other than criminal or fraudulently filed returns, you will be seriously disappointed.  Attorneys are able to generate income by perpetuating fear.  Most of our clients who started with an attorney and switched to us mentioned always being intimidated with fear that something bad would happen if… and that if always is followed by another big retainer fee.
  • IRS resolution work is not rocket science.  It is common sense work that improves over time because of relationships established with the IRS and understanding their idiosyncrasies.  Attorneys will often scare clients into thinking that their legal training is necessary for a successful resolution.
  • Many clients think that they will get what they pay for and base the quality of the work on the amount they pay.  In most cases, an attorney will charge anywhere from 25% to over 400% more for the same exact service.  If you go for a consultation with an attorney consider getting a second opinion by calling me for a free initial consultation.  I love these appointments.

When To Hire A Tax Attorney?

A Tax debt advisor can help with almost everything a tax attorney can except criminal charges. If the IRS is pursuing criminal charges against you, you will need to hire a tax attorney.  Tax fraud and tax evasion are 2 of the most common reasons for an IRS investigation. IRS investigations are serious: 80% of defendants that go through a criminal investigation are sentenced to prison. This is one situation where a tax debt advisor cannot help you, you will have to hire a tax attorney.

Why You Should Hire An Enrolled Agent Vs. Hiring A Tax Attorney

View our recent blog postWhen is a IRS tax attorney in Phoeonix necessary and when isn’t it?

1. Your tax problems might not be that bad – It doesn’t take a tax lawyer or rocket scientist to work with the IRS. Furthermore, legal training isn’t a necessity to handle most tax issues. Also, tax attorney’s will try to scare you into thinking that legal representation is necessary. That is not true! Let Tax Debt Advisors help solve your tax problems without instilling fear or requesting huge retainer fees for our services.

2. Get a 2nd Opinion – Some tax customers think that paying a higher fee will give them a higher quality services. That is false! Tax attorney commonly charge 400% more for the same services a tax debt expert can handle. There is literally no difference in the process besides you paying more money. We are not saying it is a bad idea to talk to a tax attorney but you should get a second opinion as well. At Tax Debt Advisors we offer free tax consultations.

3. Don’t Make A Decision Based On Fear – Do you think you need a tax attorney because you filed fraudulent tax returns, you might be disappointed. Tax lawyers generate income based off of fear. Most of our tax clients started with a tax attorney, only to find out that they try to intimidate you into thinking you have a bigger tax problem than you do. And, that’s almost always followed by a big retainer fee.

Feel Confident With Experienced Tax Representation

When I have looked back over the years, the one common factor in bad decision making on my part, is when I was overly influence due to fear.  I love the quote from one of the Star Wars movies that explains how Anakin became the evil Darth Vader—the quote, “It was fear that pushed me to the dark side.”  If you have already had a consultation with an attorney ask yourself one question, “Did he reduce my level of fear or just use it to get what he or she wanted?”  A good representative will always leave you feeling better, not fearful.  A great representative will focus on the 99% that can go right and the wrong ones will focus on the 1% that almost never happens.  When you are trying to decide if you need representation from an attorney consider taking the time to get a second opinion from me.  I know you will be glad you did!

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.
