We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers for Installment Arrangements

Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers

Since 1977 Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa AZ has settled over 113,000 IRS tax debts.  One of the options to settle a tax debt is the IRS installment arrangement or IRS payment plan.  This option requires that all IRS back tax returns be filed and assessed.  Financial information will need to be collected and analyzed to determine what actions to take before going to the IRS.  For example, if you are driving an older car with lots of problems, it would be prudent to purchase better transportation before locking yourself into an IRS payment plan that doesn’t allow you that option afterwards.  In this instance you will want to keep your monthly car payment below the amount the IRS allows.

Other areas of planning might include purchasing a home before an IRS tax lien in Mesa Arizona prevents you from getting a mortgage or taking care of overdue dental or medical procedures that the IRS will allow as deductions to reduce your IRS installment arrangement or payment plan.  There are many considerations that will apply specifically to your situation that require the expertise of a Mesa AZ IRS resolution professional.  Scott Allen E.A. offers a free initial consultation and can explain how to posture yourself before committing to an IRS payment plan or installment arrangement.  Scott will also advise you of the pros and cons of all applicable IRS settlement options.  Call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 to schedule an appointment.

John (a current client) received help from Scott Allen EA at Tax Debt Advisors to settle his IRS back taxes into a low monthly payment plan. All four years that he owed for were negotiated into a $290 per month payment plan.  This is just one of thousands of examples that could be shown.

Do I Need an IRS Attorney in Mesa AZ if I get an Installment Agreement Default Notice?

IRS Attorney in Mesa AZ

No, this is not a legal matter.  However, you will need to provide all of your financial information to determine if you IRS payment plan should remain the same, go up or go down.  The IRS will likely require you to have your payments come directly out of your checking account or if you have had a track record of default the IRS may want the payments to come directly from your pay check.

You have 30 days to respond to this notice or levy action will follow.  My suggestion is to have a free consultation with Scott Allen E.A. rather than with an IRS Attorney in Mesa AZ.   Scott can determine the lowest amount allowed by law that you should pay the IRS.  If your financial situation has worsen since the time you entered into your installment arrangement you may qualify for non-collectible status and not be required to make any monthly payment. He will also review all the other settlement options to determine if an IRS installment arrangement is the best option for you.  You can reach Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300.

RECENT SETTLEMENT ACCEPTANCE: See how Cooper settled his IRS tax debt without hiring an IRS Attorney in Mesa AZ (view letter below).  Scott Allen E.A. was able to represent him before the IRS and negotiate a low $200 per month payment plan on his 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2021 taxes owed. The IRS was being a bit tough with him initially, wanting nearly $400 per month but after Scott evaluated his current financial situation he knew Cooper would qualify for a monthly payment of nearly half of that.

That is exactly what was done. If you view the IRS acceptance letter you will see the IRS agreed to put all her IRS debt into a $146 per month payment plan. Congratulations Jessica!

File Back Tax Returns in Gilbert

Scott can file back tax returns in Gilbert

If you forget or fail to file back tax returns in Gilbert the IRS can file returns for you. Yes, you read that correctly. The IRS will gather whatever income information that can on you and submit a tax return for processing and assess you a balance due. They will do this usually three to seven years after the tax return was due and after sending the taxpayer several warning notices. If you don’t recall receiving any of these notices the IRS could be sending them to your last address on record which could be pretty old depending on the last time you filed a tax return. It is always better to take care of back tax returns before the IRS gets it to this level that way there isn’t protest work involved. Either way, Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc can file back tax returns in Gilbert for you. He will speak to the IRS throughout the entire process so you do not have to.

Have you maybe lost some of your tax and financial records in order to file back tax returns in Gilbert accurately? Scott Allen EA can also help with that process as well. As your IRS Power of Attorney he can help retrieve as much information from the IRS as possible.

Scott Allen EA has a recent client, Brandon who was behind in some Gilbert back tax returns. One of those years being 2014. This IRS filed and made their own assessment that totaled over $31,000 in back taxes owed.  This was outrageous. Upon an investigation into the account Scott Allen EA discovered that the IRS grabbed all the taxpayer’s gambling winnings and included it as income. The IRS didn’t know about or take into account any of the taxpayer’s gambling losses. Brandon then went and gathered up his casino and bank records to support deducting gambling losses. The tax law allows you to deduct your gambling losses up to a taxpayers winnings. Scott Allen EA prepared a 2014 return to protest the IRS’s Substitute For Return (SFR). Upon its full acceptance over $21,000 of taxes, interest, and penalties was removed. Check out the IRS acceptance letter below.

It is always important to do a complete review of a taxpayers account before negotiating a payment plan, non collectible status, offer in compromise, filing a tax bankruptcy, or file back tax returns in Gilbert.  Scott Allen EA can assist and represent you before the Internal Revenue Service from start to finish.

File Back Tax Returns in Mesa

Can I still file back tax returns in Mesa?

The answer is most definitely yes. Scott Allen EA receives calls all the time with taxpayers asking, “is it possible to file back tax returns in Mesa?”  Just because you miss one year, three years, or eleven years of filing your taxes it doesn’t mean they wont let you file a current year tax return. Clients will also ask Scott Allen EA, “do you think the IRS forgot about me? I have not file a tax return in four years and I have not heard from them yet?”  Trust this one rule, the IRS may be slow and inefficient at what they do but they will never forget about you. Eventually time catches up and the IRS will force a taxpayer to file back tax returns in Mesa by either:

  • sending you a “lock-in” letter forcing you to withhold taxes from your current employer at the highest possible rate and unable to change it for three years
  • filings a substitute for return (SFR) in your behalf giving you a balance due on back taxes owed
  • filing a tax lien
  • bank levy
  • wage garnishment
  • assigning your case to a local IRS Revenue Officer

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc that whether you have to file back tax returns in Mesa for two years, four years, or ten years is it always better to reach out to the IRS before they reach out. Because by doing do we can prevent them from doing any of those negative actions against you mentioned above. Once an IRS wage garnishment has been started 1) it is difficult to get it stopped and 2) it is difficult to correct the matter when the IRS is taking 30% of your paycheck. With Scott Allen EA as your IRS Power of Attorney he can represent you and put a hold to any collection activity before it ever begins. Then once that hold is placed on the account it will remain on hold as long as the commitments are met to get the taxpayer fully compliant.

What does it mean to be fully compliant?

In addition to file back tax returns in Mesa a taxpayer also needs to be sure they are having proper W2 withholdings with the federal and state or making monthly or quarterly estimated tax payments if they are self employed. The IRS needs to be certain that if they are going to work out a payment plan or offer in compromise settlement that you will not owe on next years taxes when it is due April 15th. Scott Allen EA will be there for you next year by sending you a reminder letter in January and a phone call in February to come in a get your current year taxes prepared, filed and paid on time.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc has been in business since 1977 and Scott Allen EA bought the family business in 2011. Together they have settled over 100,000 IRS debts. Below is just one recent example of a successful case where Scott Allen EA was able to file back tax returns in Mesa and save Trevor $77,638 on his 2016 tax return.

Audit Reconsideration in Phoenix AZ

If you are considering audit reconsideration in Phoenix AZ may I suggest you make a call to Scott Allen EA. Click on the following image to view a recent success he had with a current client in an IRS a similar situation.  Scott Allen EA saved this client $18,451 simply by challenging the IRS auditor through audit reconsideration in Phoenix Arizona.

phoenix az irs audit reconsideration 1

Just because the IRS says its so does not make it correct.  If you feel your audit did not go as you has hoped and you have a new position for the IRS to consider you may want to consider IRS audit reconsideration in Phoenix AZ.  Audit reconsideration can also be an effective tool if you have unfiled tax returns.  The IRS can “audit” you on that unfiled tax return and asses you on the tax debt that they come up with.  Its up to the taxpayer to file and protest their findings.  One thing to always remember with Phoenix AZ audit reconsideration though is that they are not quick fixes.  As we all know the IRS can be slow and patience has to be used throughout the process. Scott Allen EA has seen IRS audit reconsideration take 2 months and he has seen them take 18 months.  Because of this it is important to have an IRS power of attorney like Scott Allen EA to work aggressively for you. Schedule an appointment to meet with him today for an in office visit.

If you have an IRS assessment that you have zero idea on how they came up with that amount its probably because the IRS filed what they call a SFR return.  SFR stands for substitute for return. What does this mean? It means you had an unfiled tax return so they filed in your behalf. These are returns that you want to take to audit reconsideration. Scott Allen EA has the experience to get that done for you.

Another Case Update for Audit Reconsideration in Phoenix AZ

Christie went through a CP-2000 underreporting audit by the IRS because of some errors made by them and also their previous preparer who prepared their 2016 tax return.  Due to inaction, the IRS assessed Christie over $88,000 in tax, interest and penalty. She met with Scott and hired him to be her power of attorney and investigate the matter. It was discovered that the IRS was erroneously doubling her K1 income. An amended business return was filed and the IRS took both K1’s as income to her rather then removing the original and only assessing the amended K1.  It was nearly a 9 month long fight with the IRS to get this explained and correct; but the result made it all worth it. Over $79,000 of tax, interest and penalty was removed from her account. Click and view the IRS audit reconsideration Phoenix AZ letter below.

Do I need a Chandler AZ IRS Tax Attorney for IRS Tax Relief?

No, IRS tax relief is not a legal matter.

Chandler AZ IRS problems are a burden that often requires professional help but not necessarily require a Chandler AZ IRS Tax Attorney (as people in fear often assume).  If you are delinquent in filing tax returns you need a Chandler AZ tax professional who is competent in both filing late returns and settling the debt associated with those back tax returns.  Where taxpayers are hurt the most is in the amount the IRS expects to be paid back on a monthly basis.  This is called an installment arrangement.  An IRS professional with expertise in negotiating payment plans will minimize the amount you have to pay in monthly and often can get you qualified for no payment at all—this is referred to a currently not collectible status or CNC.

If you try to do this work yourself, you may find it difficult to get to the right person who can help you, and when you do find the right department you have to deal with a different person each time that often will come up with different conclusions about your settlement.

Scott Allen E.A. near Chandler Arizona knows in advance what the best settlement amount should be and is able to “manage” the IRS personnel towards that amount.  The bureaucracy at the IRS is largely eliminated because Scott Allen E.A. is not a Chandler AZ IRS Tax Attorney but is allowed to talk with IRS personnel trained to deal with “practioners.”  The rules that govern IRS settlements are not universal administered by IRS personnel.  It is only at the manager or Appeals Office level that you get the person who can correctly agree to the settlement you are entitled to.  Call Scott Allen E.A. for a free consultation at 480-926-9300 and bypass the bureaucracy, complexity and human error that are inherent in IRS settlement work.  Let Scott make today a great day for you.

Do Phoenix Arizona IRS Tax Attorneys Provide Personal Service?

Phoenix Arizona IRS Tax Attorneys

The number one complaint we hear from our clients about Phoenix Arizona IRS tax attorneys is the lack of personal service and lack of responding to questions that are understood, or simply returning phone calls.  The sad part is that we hear this complaint occasionally from clients who we referred to Phoenix Arizona IRS tax Attorneys that we have worked with and know are much better at providing personal service that the typical attorney.

The response to your questions by a Phoenix Arizona IRS tax attorney is usually above the level of understanding of most of their clients.  After providing IRS resolution services for many years, I am convinced that this is either a tactic to limit the number of questions they have to answer or as a part of their attitude of intimidating clients into submission.

Once you have paid your fee to a Phoenix Arizona IRS tax attorney, they have an intense resistance to return phone calls.  They are reluctant to returns calls because they know clients will continue to call when they have concerns and questions—that are often keeping them awake at night.

May we respectfully suggest that you contact Scott Allen E.A with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc at 480-926-9300 for a free consultation.  You will notice the difference immediately about his ability to respond to your questions in a manner you understand the first time.  When you call his office, he will answer the phone unless he is on the phone or with a client—but your call will be returned before he goes on to the next appointment.

Check out a recent success by Scott Allen EA who is NOT a Phoenix Arizona IRS tax attorney. He was able to negotiate six years and $69,000 of IRS tax debt into a currently non collectible status. What does this mean? Randall does not have to make any monthly payments towards his back taxes as long as he files and full pays his current and future taxes on time. A pretty nice settlement for him! Now he can move on to the next chapter in his life with out always worried about the IRS.
