Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney or not?

Do I need a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney for my IRS problem?

Reading this blog will be a win-win situation for you.  First, you do not need a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney to settle your IRS debt.  Second, Tax Debt Advisors, Inc is not a law firm.  They are a tax firm that specializes in unfiled back tax returns and negotiating IRS debts.  Scott Allen EA will always share this one analogy: Your tax problem is not a “DUI hit and run”, it is a “delinquent parking ticket”.  Just as you wouldn’t find the need to hire an attorney for your parking ticket, you do not need to hire one for your back tax debt problem.  Using the services of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc will result in fees 25%-400% less then what an attorney would charge you to do the same work.

View the IRS notice attached to see what Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc was able to negotiate for his client, Mary.

Mary was going through a very difficult time when she first came in to meet with Scott Allen, EA.  She was newly divorced and had discovered that she was entangled in an IRS nightmare that her ex-husband left her to deal with.  As you can see by the notice she was behind on several back tax returns that needed to be filed with the IRS.  She didn’t know how to where to make quarterly estimated tax payments.  And, the IRS was threatening to place a levy on her only source of income.

Scott Allen EA was able to get Power of Attorney representation for Mary and put a stop to all enforcement action by the IRS. Year by year they went through the tax preparation process beginning with 2008.  They were able to get her caught up all the way through the 2014 tax return.  Along with that, Mary is also caught up on her estimated tax payment requirement for 2015.  Surprisingly, she is actually looking forward to preparing and filing her 2015 tax return as she knows she does not have to write them a big check April 15th.  This is the most important and critical step with the IRS.  If they see you making estimated tax payments they can tell that you are trying to correct the matter.  Without that being done a settlement for Mary either might not have been possible or she wouldn’t have gotten as good of a result.

Just the other day Mary called with excitement to let Scott Allen EA know she made the January 28th monthly payment on time and online!  She settled her IRS debt on a $249/month payment plan and could not be more relieved knowing the IRS isn’t going to zap her wages or bank account.

Enrolled Agent vs Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney or E.A. for IRS Resolution?

Instead of a Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney, Brian used Enrolled Agent Scott Allen to resolve his tax debt. Tax Debt Advisors, Inc is a tax practice specializing in filing back tax returns and settling IRS debts and have been doing it since 1977.  Scott Allen EA took over the family business from his father in 2006 and had been operating it fully ever since. Brian came in a met with Scott and reviewed his situation with him.  Brian had five years of back tax returns to prepare.  Scott reviewed with him the three step process to get a successful resolution.

First, Brain gave Scott Allen EA power of attorney to represent him before the IRS. With this he communicated with the IRS up front to analyze fully the situation at hand. Second, the five unfiled tax returns were prepared. And lastly, as you can see below a settlement was negotiated on the outstanding IRS debt. After all the tax returns were prepared Brian owed the IRS less then $25,000.  They were able to establish a payment plan with the IRS and prevent them from filing a federal tax lien. All of this work from start to finish was handled by a family owned company headed up by Scott Allen EA (Enrolled Agent).

December 2018 New Case Settlement

What can be done with an IRS debt of nearly $100,000? With an Enrolled Agent you can get it uncollectible. Yes, that is right. David owes the IRS $98,000 but does not have to make any payments on that debt. Scott Allen EA negotiated a uncollectible status. See the approved agreement below. The best part about this agreement is about half of the debt expires in less then two years. Many people don’t know IRS debts have a statute of limitations but they do.

Do I need a Gilbert Tax Attorney to file an IRS Audit Reconsideration?

If you have a tax matter that needs to be re-evaluated by the IRS, the IRS Audit Reconsideration program is an excellent procedure to consider.  Scott Allen E.A. has expertise in providing representation on IRS Audit Reconsideration cases that will give you the best chance of eliminating or lowering the tax balance owed.  Rather than calling a Gilbert Tax Attorney call Scott Allen E.A. today at 480-926-9300 for a free consultation regarding your options to take advantage of the IRS Audit Reconsideration program.

Do I Need an IRS Tax Attorney in Gilbert AZ when I have not paid my IRS 940 Taxes?

No, this is not a legal matter requiring a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  However, you do need IRS help.  IRS form 940 is for federal unemployment taxes.  They are calculated on the first $7,000 of wages paid to each employee.  If you are self-employed your Arizona business is responsible for the payment of unemployment taxes; otherwise the liability will eventually be transferred to the Gilbert AZ business owner—YOU!  IRS form 940 can be confusing because not only business employees but unemployment taxes apply to agricultural and farming employees and domestic household employees.

Do not take the filing and payment of unemployment taxes lightly—the IRS doesn’t.  The IRS will file IRS tax liens and possibly seize business and personal property to pay off your debt.  Scott Allen E.A. has the experience and expertise to settle with the IRS on your IRS Form 940 taxes.  Scott is available for a free consultation to see what options are available to settle your IRS tax debt.  He can be reached at 480-926-9300.  Don’t hesitate to call him over calling a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney.

Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney to get an IRS tax lien released or removed?

No, getting an IRS lien released is not a legal matter. If the IRS has filed a lien, it is important to know how long the Gilbert AZ tax lien has been filed.  After the statute of limitations period of 10 years, IRS tax liens are automatically released.  However, the IRS does not report this information to credit bureaus unless the taxes have been paid.  Scott Allen E.A of Gilbert and Mesa can advised you how to get the credit bureaus aware that your lien is no longer in place.

If you have just had a lien filed and feel that it should not have been filed in the first place and did not take advantage of a Collections Due Process Hearing, contact Scott Allen E.A. and set up a free consultation to determine if you have a valid reason for the IRS to release the tax lien.

If the lien is not released, there are situations where the IRS will subordinate their lien to allow you to get a loan on your Gilbert AZ home.  There are certain criteria that have to be met but if you qualify Scott Allen E.A. can get a subordination of your IRS tax lien.  Instead of working with an IRS tax attorney in Gilbert AZ contact Scott Allen E.A if you have a tax lien to determine what your options are.  Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300.

Do I Need a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney For Trust Fund Recovery Penalties?

The IRS is very aggressive in trying to collect on Trust Funds associated with payroll taxes withheld from employee’s paychecks.  However, this is not a legal matter and is not considered a criminal act and does not require the services of an IRS Tax Attorney in Gilbert Arizona.  Most employers that do not pay in their payroll tax withholdings are struggling with their business and try to keep the business afloat by “borrowing” these funds with the intent to pay them back at a later date when business improves.

Unfortunately most businesses do not improve enough to pay the taxes with the penalties added.  When the business closes, these taxes are eventually reassigned over to the individual(s) responsible for paying the taxes.  This will include the owners and anyone associated with payment of taxes.

There are two areas of IRS representation work that may be needed with regard to Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.  If you feel that the IRS is unjustified in targeting you for payment of the taxes and penalties, we are able to evaluate your responsibility or lack thereof.  This is usually a black and white matter, but the IRS takes a “shot gun” approach and tries to include as many people without really knowing who is truly responsible.

The second area is making a settlement with the IRS if you are in fact responsible for the payment of the tax and penalties.  There are several options available to settle with the IRS for less than the amount owed, depending on your financial ability to pay.

Scott Allen E.A. of Gilbert and Mesa AZ has expertise in both areas dealing with Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.  Call Scott today and schedule a free consultation at 480-926-9300 to get an evaluation of what your options are.  Scott Allen E.A. will put your mind at ease knowing that you are facing this serious IRS problem with a professional who has successfully negotiated many favorable settlements with the IRS on Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.  Please call Scott for a honest second opinion if you are determined to think you need a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney for IRS Trust Fund Recovery Penalties.

Thank you.

Do I Need a Gilbert AZ Tax Attorney if I get an IRS Notice of Deficiency?

Before we begin let me just say that today can be a great day for you!

First, this is not a legal matter and does not need the attention of an IRS Tax Gilbert AZ Attorney.  The IRS Notice of Deficiency is also known as a “90 day letter.”  You will have to either file a corrected return and if that return is not assessed within 90 days, a petition with the tax court needs to be filed.  The tax court will refer your petition to the local Appeals Office.  It may take several weeks before the Appeals Office will contact you or your IRS representative (hopefully Scott Allen, E.A.) and either accept the return that was filed or request documentation of certain items on the return.  In most cases the returns are accepted as filed.

This process can be a little tricky and is one you should use an IRS professional such as Scott Allen E.A.  Scott will prepare the return and file the U.S. Tax Court Petition.  He will also take over when the Appeals Officer calls to approve the return as filed or provide documentation that may be requested.  Scott Allen E.A. is available for a free consultation at 480-926-9300.

If you live and or work in the Gilbert Arizona area, don’t make a mistake or delay the process.  Scott is usually available to meet with you within 24-48 hours on most cases.  In meeting with me you will be able to compare the difference in my services verses the services of a Gilbert IRS Tax Attorney.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.  www.IRShelpblog.com

My IRS Debt Keeps Going Up. Do I Need an IRS Tax Attorney (Gilbert, AZ)?

Tax clients think that they will have to pay on their tax debt until their last breath.  IRS tax debts have a statute of limitations.  In other words there is a date when the tax debt will go away.  This is called the Collection Statute Expiration Date.  On this date your tax debt goes away.  Generally the IRS has 10 years from the date of assessment to collect the tax due.  You do not need to take any legal action thru a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney to get this information.  There are also many tax settlement options that can reduce or eliminate the tax debt before the statute runs out.

To evaluate your options, contact Scott Allen E.A. with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. for a free consultation at 480-926-9300 to see where you stand.  You may find that you can move forward in your life much sooner than you previously thought.

The most important thing to remember in letting your IRS debt expire is to file and full pay your current and future taxes on time.  As a tax professional Scott can file any and all tax returns to keep the IRS off your back until your IRS debts expire.  An IRS Tax Attorney AZ Gilbert typically isn’t the best option for tax preparation as their line of work is on legal matters.

IRS Tax Debt and Confidentiality

Do IRS Tax Attorneys in Gilbert Arizona Provide a Higher Level of Confidentiality?

All IRS resolution experts are required to keep confidential any information disclosed to them whether they be a Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney, Enrolled Agent (E.A.) or CPA?  The only time this becomes critical is in the matter of criminal cases.  An IRS Tax Attorney in Gilbert, AZ has “attorney client privilege.”  This means that if you have committed a criminal act, the IRS Tax Gilbert Attorney is allowed to keep information confidential.

The problem comes when less than 1 out of 10,000 clients that we have seen over the last 37 years has committed a criminal act and should retain the services of a Gilbert, AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  Yet when our clients have talked to a Gilbert Tax Attorney, the attorney always mentions that they have attorney client privilege as if that is needed in your case—which is almost never.  So why pay two or three times as much for something you don’t need.

If you scheduled a free consultation with Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 he can tell you if you have committed a criminal act and need the services of an IRS Tax Attorney in Gilbert, AZ.  If that is the case, he will be able to refer you to a Tax IRS Attorney Gilbert, AZ that specializes in the tax representation area you require.

Scott Allen, E.A. works with the company Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.
