Do I need an Arizona IRS Attorney when I can’t pay what I owe the IRS?

No, your inability to pay the IRS is not a legal matter.  What you do need is a highly trained tax professional.  Most clients that owe the IRS will have a problem or inability to pay what the IRS says they owe them before the debt is fully paid off.  Some of the options available include:

  • Determine if you qualify for a non-collectible status.
  • Determine if you qualify for an Offer in Compromise.
  • Determine if you qualify to have your tax liability discharged in a bankruptcy.
  • Determine if any of your interest or penalties can be abated.
  • Determine if you should amend a previously filed tax return.
  • Determine if you should request an audit reconsideration on a return that was audited—especially if you did not attend the audit and were denied all of your legitimate deductions.
  • Determine if you qualify for a reduction in your monthly IRS Installment Arrangement.

All of these options should be considered if you cannot pay the IRS what you owe.  Scott Allen E.A of Arizona is well versed in all of these IRS procedures and is available for a free consultation.  He can be reached at 480-926-9300.

Our family tax business in has been filing Mesa AZ IRS Offers in Compromise since 1977—that is over 36 years expertise in what will be accepted and what will not.  One of the biggest mistakes taxpayers make is using a company that “sells” an Offer in Compromise and then finding out a year later that their Offer never had a chance.  Then on top of that other options may not be possible or at least delayed because you filed a denied Offer in Compromise.  While denied Offers are in process, your tax liability is building up interest, penalties and extending the statute of limitations, which is the time the IRS can collect the Mesa AZ tax debt owed.

Why not schedule a free consultation to get a straight answer about what your Offer amount is.  Many Offer amounts are far more than what taxpayers can afford to pay or more than the tax debt owed.  And if you do not qualify to file an Offer Scott Allen E.A. will review other settlement options which very often are better than what the Offer in Compromise program will do for you.

If you will provide accurate and timely information, Scott Allen E.A. has expertise in filing and getting your Mesa AZ IRS Offer in Compromise accepted by the IRS.  However, if while the IRS is considering your Offer, if your financial situation improves, your Offer amount will be adjusted upward.  Remember that in our 36 years filing Offers only about 2% of clients that we have met qualify and can pay the Offer amount the IRS will accept.  That is why considering all your options when you visit Scott Allen E.A. makes sense.  Call Scott today at 480-926-9300 and let him make today a great day for you.

Do I Need a Glendale IRS Tax Attorney to do a Hardship Offer in Compromise?

No, this is not a legal matter and you don’t need to hire the first Glendale IRS Tax Attorney you talk to.  However, it will take an IRS resolution specialist who has expertise in applying and getting approval from the IRS to accept your hardship case.  Hardship means that it would cause you to suffer a severe hardship even though you can pay the tax liability.  There must be unusual circumstances before one can expect the IRS to consider the taxpayer a hardship candidate.  For this reason, hardship offers are rare compared to offers based on the ability to pay the full amount of the tax debt.

Some of the valid hardship situations would include:

  • All of the taxpayer’s assets would be required to provide adequate medical care for an illness or physical disability.
  • Payment of the tax debt owed would leave the taxpayer without means to cover necessary living expenses including housing, food, medical care, clothing and utilities.
  • The taxpayer does not have the ability to liquidate or borrow against assets to pay the tax debt.

Sometimes seeking a currently non-collectible status (CNC0 can provide the same protection needed by the taxpayer.   A CNC status is much easier to get approved by the IRS and is not difficult, in many situations, to be maintained until the statute of limitations for the collection of the taxes owed to the IRS has passed.

May I suggest you contact Scott Allen E.A. who has expertise in these matters and can navigate you towards the best settlement option at the lowest cost to you?  Scott is available for a free consultation at 480-926-9300.  Put your mind at ease and contact Scott Allen E.A. today.

Do I file an IRS Offer in Compromise?

First, an Offer in Compromise (OIC) is not a legal matter with the IRS and you don’t need to be represented by an Arizona IRS Tax Attorney.

One must “qualify” in order to petition the IRS to accept a payment for less than they owe.  This applies to the tax owed and the penalties and interest that have been added.  The IRS must be convinced that a taxpayer owes more than they could pay back in a reasonable period.  Most IRS tax advisors use the term, “ever pay back,” but that is not true.  Some clients of Scott Allen E.A. have been approved for an OIC and years later could have paid back the full amount as their financial situation greatly improved.

Scott Allen E.A has expertise in the IRS OIC program.  The IRS will base an acceptable OIC when there is doubt as to collectability, doubt as to liability, or in cases deemed “Hardship.”  OIC can be filed for individuals, married couples, and individuals from a divorce that created the tax liability.

The IRS instituted the OIC program to collect as quickly as possible the highest amount available at the lowest cost to the U. S. government.  The second purpose is to allow taxpayers to resolve their indebtedness and begin paying taxes in the future when due.  It is critical that you use an expert in IRS resolutions as they apply to the OIC program.  Offers can take several months to get a determination and filing an offer that will ultimately not be accepted is a big mistake as interest and penalties will continue to add to the debt and there will be an extension of time added to the statute of limitations for the IRS to collect the debt.

Call Scott Allen E.A. for a free consultation to determine if an OIC is your best option.  Many times it is not the best option.  Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300.

New IRS Offer in Compromise rules and changes

Important changes to the IRS’s Offer in Compromise Program (Form 656).  IRS Tax Problem help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. here in Mesa, Arizona

Offer in Compromises have become increasingly tough to get the IRS to accept over the last 5-10 years.  Most taxpayers made too much money or had expenses too high that the IRS does not accept.  In previous years the IRS multiplied your monthly available income by either 48 or 60.  As of recent weeks the IRS has changed those numbers to 12 and 48.  This is a huge difference in Offer amounts the taxpayer would be required to pay to the IRS for their past tax debt.  Call and talk with me, Scott Allen, E.A. and schedule an appointment for a free consultation to discuss your IRS (or state) debt.   While the old Offer in Compromises rule didn’t work for you in the past, find out today if you will qualify under the new IRS Offer in Compromise rules.

Offer in Compromise in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

IRS Offer in Compromise—The sad truth.

The sad truth about Offers is that fraudulent tax representatives have benefited more from this program than the IRS.  If you have any question as to who I am referring to, here is the list—any company on TV, any company who has a centralized office in another state and operate with satellite offices filled with sales people, and any company that uses the phrase, “settle for pennies on the dollar.”

This is what we have learned over the last 35 years of tax representation.

  • Only 1-2% of the individuals we have met qualified for an Offer in Compromise that could pay the amount of a legitimate Offer.  If you insist on pursuing your Offer at least get a second opinion.
  • Of the 1000’s of rejected Offers we have reviewed that were prepared by fraudulent representatives over the last 35 years, only 2 were legitimate and worthy of taking to the Office of Appeals.
  • Within 5 minutes I can tell you if your Offer amount is reasonable.  But to do so, let me know two facts.  One, what amount do you qualify for as an installment arrangement and two, how much equity do you have in any assets such as a home, vehicles, retirement plans or cash in the bank.  Your Offer amount must be 48 times your monthly payment plan plus any equity you have in any assets.  If you still need a more professional opinion—Call me for a free initial confidential consultation.
  • If you qualify for an Offer, we can file it and get it accepted as long as you provide us with accurate and complete information.

Finally, why do an Offer if it isn’t going to work?  I will calculate the amount of your Offer and provide you with all of your other settlement options.  Don’t be defrauded because you hear something you want to believe.  Get the truth from someone that will give you all of your options that will work.
