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 Tax Attorney When the IRS Has Levied My Pay Check?

Settle 13 tax years without an Arizona Tax Attorney

No, this is not a legal matter.  The IRS has levied your pay check because you have a tax liability and have not entered into any settlement option.  The first step is to file any unfiled tax returns.  If all of your returns have been filed, the second step is to enter into a settlement with the IRS.  Once you have entered into a settlement with the IRS, the levy on future pay checks will be removed.  The IRS will generally keep the amount levied unless your back tax returns show that you have a refund coming, or you can prove that keeping the levied amount would impose a hardship.

Scott Allen E.A. (who is not an Arizona Tax Attorney) can promptly file back tax returns, enter into a settlement option with the IRS, and get the IRS to remove the levy on future pay checks.  Call Scott Allen E.A. today at 480-926-9300 for a free consultation.  He can start the process immediately and provide the quickest release on your levied pay checks.

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.

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.

Arizona IRS and state tax help: State Payroll Tax Problems?

No, state payroll tax problems are not a legal matter so an Arizona IRS or tax attorney is not required.  Arizona, like most states is under stress financially to operated state government functions.  Many states are running large deficit spending.  For this reason Arizona aggressively enforces collection action against businesses that are behind on filing their payroll tax returns and payment of payroll taxes.

The Arizona Department of Revenue has the authority to file state tax liens and seize property as well as take away driving privileges.  If you are delinquent in the filing or payment of Arizona payroll taxes, contact Scott Allen E.A. who has expertise in negotiating settlements with the Arizona Department of Revenue.  Scott provides a free initial consultation and can be reached at 480-926-9300.
