Gilbert, AZ IRS Tax Attorney verses Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.

Working with a Gilbert, AZ IRS Tax Attorney versus Scott Allen E. A. on your IRS problem

  • With an IRS Tax Attorney in Gilbert, AZ you are unlikely to get a call back whether you have paid his/her fee or not—UNFORTUNATELY EVEN THE ONES WE WILL REFER YOU TO, IF NECESSARY (tax bankruptcy), ARE NOT THAT GOOD AT STAYING IN CONTACT OR SPEAKING YOUR LANGUAGE INSTEAD OF COMPLICATED LEGAL TERMS.
  • Scott Allen, E.A. will answer your phone call.  If he is tied up he will return your call that day, usually within 30-60 minutes, and on serious matters will interrupt his current appointment and take your call.  You will understand what he is saying and feel confident that he understands your concerns—AND YOU WON’T FEEL RUSHED WITH AN, “OKAY?” AFTER EVERY SENTENCE.
  • Remember that if your Gilbert, AZ IRS Tax Attorney is unresponsive to you, they will be even less responsive to the demands of the IRS –AND THAT WILL COST YOU BIG TIME IN FEES YOU WILL PAY THE GILBERT ARIZONA IRS TAX ATTORNEY AND THE ULTIMATE AMOUNT YOU WILL END UP PAYING THE IRS.

The best part about using the services of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. is that we are a Gilbert tax service that is open 5 days a week all 12 months out of the year.  Once we resolve a client’s tax problem they have gained confidence in our work and want to stick with us for their yearly tax preparation needs.  We know what got them into the mess and we know how to prevent it in the future.  If clients follow through with our advice they never get back in to IRS tax trouble again.  We have one office and one phone number.  You will always know where and how to get a hold of us.

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

Gilbert AZ Tax Attorney for back taxes?

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 a Gilbert AZ Tax 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 AZ Tax Attorney.

Recent success story without needing a Gilbert AZ Tax Attorney

Kurt met with Scott because the IRS was sending him outrageous bills in the mail for back taxes owed for 2012. However, he never filed a 2012 return so how could he owe them over $26,000? Scott Allen EA was about to investigate the matter and discovered that the IRS filed an SFR return in his behalf and a protest tax return needed to be filed for it immediately.  Scott Allen E.A. did exactly that! By filing a corrected tax return Kurt’s tax bill was reduced by $18,000. Don’t settle or be afraid to challenge the IRS as they are not always right. Know your rights and speak with Scott today.

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.

Gilbert AZ IRS tax attorney

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.

Successful IRS Offer in Compromise requires professional assistance from Tax Debt Advisors

Gilbert AZ Offer in Compromise

A Gilbert AZ Offer in Compromise is a challenging process.  Most successful Offers require professional assistance.  Not because the forms are that difficult but due to the time and attention it takes to keep your Offer flowing through the IRS system.  Most rejected Offers are lost in the process or when transferred to the next person assigned to your case.  The other problem is that so many Offers are rejected due to errors or incomplete information that it is easier for the IRS to find something wrong with your Offer and reject it than to process the paper work.  When the IRS does contact the taxpayer for information, the deadlines are very tight to respond.  Any deadline missed will result in a rejected Offer.

Tax Debt Advisors near Gilbert Arizona has the experience and expertise to monitor your Gilbert AZ Offer in Compromise from start to finish.  If you would like a free Gilbert AZ initial consultation regarding an Offer in Compromise, call 480-926-9300 today.

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

Trust Fund and Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney

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 Gilbert AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  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.

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

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 Gilbert AZ typically isn’t the best option for tax preparation as their line of work is on legal matters.
