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.

IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona: When should I NOT use an attorney?

IRS Tax Attorney in Arizona: When should I NOT use an attorney?

Tax Attorney Phoenix | Mesa, Tempe, Chandler Scottsdale

If you are searching for “tax attorney“, “tax lawyer“, “IRS tax lawyer“, “IRS attorney“, “tax attorneys“, “IRS tax attorney“, “tax attorney near me” or “best tax attorney” in PhoenixMesaChandlerGilbert, Tempe or Scottsdale, Arizona, Scott Allen E. A. from Tax Debt Advisors can help!

Even the best tax lawyers & attorneys can’t compare to what Scott Allen E. A. can offer to help settle your problems with the IRS. First of all, lets take a look at what a tax attorney does.

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. His father and 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!

5 Star Review: “Scott did an outstanding job helping my parents on their back due taxes. When I met him he was very professional and knowledgeable about how to approach the problem. Our issue took 9 months to resolve because of problems with how our taxes were filed (not his fault), but he stayed engaged and helpful the whole time even though we were very small clients for him. My parents don’t have to pay anything back to the IRS. It just amazing, it was a burden and now it’s such a relieve, such peace of mind. My dad comments that now he can sleep better without thinking about it. Thank you Scott!” Pilar L.

Before Colvin met with Scott Allen EA he was buried in IRS debt and an IRS Revenue Officer contacting him to collect the debt.  He had tried to get the matter resolved a year prior unsuccessfully with an out-of-state company paying them over $6,000.00 and receiving nothing in return.  Colvin heard a local radio ad for Tax Debt Advisors earlier this year and knew at that moment that he needed to meet with them to get his IRS problem fixed once and for all.  Tax Debt Advisors is a local Arizona company that promises follow through service.  This is the best way to get a handle on an IRS problem. You have to be able to meet with your hired representative face-to-face.  Also, only pay for services as they are being accomplished.  If anybody is requiring a large upfront retainer that means its time to find someone else.

Colvin had several years of unfiled tax returns along with the two pictured above that needed to be fixed through the audit reconsideration unit in Ogden Utah. Now that his IRS debt has been reduced to a manageable amount Scott Allen EA can now negotiate a reasonable payment plan for the client.  This is what he is doing for Colvin as we speak.  This is the difference getting the right representation can mean.  For Colvin is was a $517,192 decision.

Tax Debt Advisors Reviews saved Vickie over $11,000

Vickie had old IRS debt from 2011 and 2012 that had been hanging over her head for quite some time. She met with Scott Allen EA to see what options were available to her. She heard about him thru his online reviews she read about him and had in her mind taking advantage of the “fresh start program” with the IRS that she hears advertised all the time. Yes, it is a viable option but it is time consuming and is expensive to hire the right representation. After a careful evaluation Scott Allen EA found a better solution. Let’s pay nothing back to the IRS and let it expire. Yes, IRS debts expire and for Vickie the expirations are less than two years away. All she has to do it not incur any future debts on the account and the IRS will put her in a currently not collectible status based upon her financial situation. Paying nothing is always better then paying something.  Again, before you rush into a settlement idea its important to look at all the options available first. Scott Allen EA will help you do just that! See the settlement agreement Scott Allen EA negotiated for Vickie below.

What happens when you file Mesa AZ back tax returns late ?

Mesa AZ Back Tax Returns

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors Inc in Mesa AZ helps taxpayers with filing back tax returns.

One of the best ways to prevent your “future” IRS debt from growing is to file your tax returns on time.  90% of the penalties the IRS charges are from filing your taxes late NOT from not paying your taxes.  Here are some of the negative things to be aware of if you file Mesa AZ back tax returns late.

If you fail to file your tax return on time the IRS can do what they call a SFR return meaning they file the taxes for you.  They usually do this in a way that benefits them and gives you a rather large tax debt.  If the IRS beats you to filing your taxes then those taxes can never be discharged in a bankruptcy.  If you are a Mesa AZ taxpayers who usually qualifies for the Earned Income Credit; you forfeit the credit if you do not file within 3 years of the due date.  Also, refunds expire after 3 years.  If you are a self-employed individual and do not file within 3 years of the due date you will lose out on those social security benefits.

Although the law states the IRS can prosecute you for not filing your back tax returns in Mesa Arizona, as long as you don’t refuse Scott Allen EA has never seen this happen.

Check out the adjustment made on a 2011 tax return for their client David. He failed to file his 2011 tax return so the IRS prepared an SFR return causing him to owe over $5,000 in taxes in which he really didn’t owe. After meeting with Scott Allen EA they gathered up the necessary information to prepare an accurate return to protest the IRS. As you can see from the notice below that David really only owed the IRS less than $600.

Mesa AZ back tax returns

With all that being said the best way to avoid large amounts of interest and penalties from piling on is to file your taxes on time.  Whether you need help with tax preparation or filing back tax returns Scott Allen EA can get you on the right track.  After everything is filed correctly and you have an IRS debt Scott Allen EA can also negotiate the best possible agreement or settlement allowable by law.  Don’t delay any longer.  Call 480-926-9300.

Why do I need a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney when I can’t pay what I owe the IRS?

Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney

First, your inability to pay the IRS is not a legal matter needing a Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  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.
  • Determine if you qualify for innocent spouse relief.

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

Tax Debt Advisors vs. Tempe AZ IRS Tax Attorney:  It’s your choice.

Tax Debt Advisors amended a clients tax return

Sometimes the best method is reviewing past tax return filings to see if anything can be amended. Scott Allen EA did that for his client Stephen and found out that he was being charged taxes on his gambling winnings but had not deducted his gambling losses. The IRS will allow a taxpayer to deduct their losses up to their winnings. After gathering up all the necessary documentation the return was amended and the client saved $27,000 in taxes. Check out the IRS notice below. After this was handled then the remaining amount was negotiated into a monthly payment plan to get it paid off as quickly as possible.

Challenge Phoenix AZ back tax returns the IRS files for you

Did you know the IRS can file Phoenix AZ back tax returns in your behalf?

Guess what?  It happens every single day.  If you delay filing your taxes the IRS can elect to file those back tax returns for you.  They refer to this as Substitute For Returns or SFR.  This was the case for a client of Tax Debt Advisors.  Marcus had not timely filed his 2007 1040 tax return.  When the IRS did it for him they came up with a tax bill that accumulated to $10,137 in taxes, interest, and penalties. When Marcus came in to see Scott Allen EA he went over the process step by step in getting the issue resolved and how to “protest” their tax filing.  It is not a matter of “if” the IRS will allow you to challenge their filings but rather “when”. The IRS does not look forward to doing this to taxpayers; they prefer they file the returns themselves.  Below you will see the adjustment made on Marcus’s 2007 tax return that Tax Debt Advisors was able to protest.  Now Marcus only owes the IRS $2,094 on his 2007 tax return.
