Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.—How do I file tax returns when I have lost my records?

File tax returns in Chandler AZ

It is not uncommon for Chandler AZ clients who have not filed for several years to have lost records due to moving, or a flood or a break in, or other reasons.  All is not lost if you have lost your records.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. (near Chandler AZ) will be able to get all of your records that have been reported to the IRS.  Once you know your income items then you have a good idea of where to start with your deductions.  Some deductions such as home mortgage interest deductions are reported to the IRS.  Bank records can be searched on line or ordered if necessary.  Many deductions can be substantiated as a natural cost of doing business—i.e. fuel if you are a truck driver.

If you have tax returns from prior years that need to be filed and your records are lost or incomplete, you need professional assistance from Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. offers a free consultation and can be reached at 480-926-9300. Often times it is best to not fight the IRS alone and to go in with proper experienced representation.

Melissa is someone who hired Scott as her Power of Attorney to file her tax returns in Chandler AZ. A few of her tax years were already filed but were filed incorrectly misreporting income. Because of this error, the IRS initiated an audit and assessed her over $10,000 in additional taxes owed. Scott Allen E.A. was able to research the matter and advised her of preparing an amended tax return in protest to what the IRS did.  They did just that and as you can see from the approval notice below that it reduced what she owes the IRS by $5,000. After getting this all corrected for her they are now negotiating her IRS debt into one low payment plan settlement.

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!

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

Settle the IRS without using an Arizona IRS Attorney

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.

What Is A Tax Attorney?

A tax attorney is a layer who specializes in tax law. They can help solve legal, technical and complex problems with the IRS.

What Does A Tax Attorney Do?

A tax attorney solves legal, technical and complex problems with the IRS. Tax attorneys can also help with:

  • Filing appeals of tax court decisions
  • Communication with the IRS
  • Help businesses save money
  • Help people take advantage of tax credits

However, these are all things a tax debt advisor could do for less money! Read more about why you need a tax debt advisor instead of hiring a tax attorney.

Can A Tax Attorney Really Help?

Yes, a tax attorney can really help if you want to pay more money for the same services a tax debt advisor can do for cheaper.

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 worse 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 113,000 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. Instead why not hire a Tax Debt Advisor who can do the same thing as a tax lawyer and who has been helping customers dealing with tax issues since 1977. Scott Allen E.A. from Tax Debt Advisors has helped over 113,000 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 an IRS tax attorney in Phoenix 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!
