Do I Need a Glendale 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 a Glendale 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.

Do I Need a Glendale IRS Tax Attorney to do a Hardship Offer in Compromise?

No, this is not a legal matter and you don’t need to hire the first Glendale IRS Tax Attorney you talk to.  However, it will take an IRS resolution specialist who has expertise in applying and getting approval from the IRS to accept your hardship case.  Hardship means that it would cause you to suffer a severe hardship even though you can pay the tax liability.  There must be unusual circumstances before one can expect the IRS to consider the taxpayer a hardship candidate.  For this reason, hardship offers are rare compared to offers based on the ability to pay the full amount of the tax debt.

Some of the valid hardship situations would include:

  • All of the taxpayer’s assets would be required to provide adequate medical care for an illness or physical disability.
  • Payment of the tax debt owed would leave the taxpayer without means to cover necessary living expenses including housing, food, medical care, clothing and utilities.
  • The taxpayer does not have the ability to liquidate or borrow against assets to pay the tax debt.

Sometimes seeking a currently non-collectible status (CNC0 can provide the same protection needed by the taxpayer.   A CNC status is much easier to get approved by the IRS and is not difficult, in many situations, to be maintained until the statute of limitations for the collection of the taxes owed to the IRS has passed.
