We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers for Installment Arrangements

Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers

Since 1977 Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa AZ has settled over 113,000 IRS tax debts.  One of the options to settle a tax debt is the IRS installment arrangement or IRS payment plan.  This option requires that all IRS back tax returns be filed and assessed.  Financial information will need to be collected and analyzed to determine what actions to take before going to the IRS.  For example, if you are driving an older car with lots of problems, it would be prudent to purchase better transportation before locking yourself into an IRS payment plan that doesn’t allow you that option afterwards.  In this instance you will want to keep your monthly car payment below the amount the IRS allows.

Other areas of planning might include purchasing a home before an IRS tax lien in Mesa Arizona prevents you from getting a mortgage or taking care of overdue dental or medical procedures that the IRS will allow as deductions to reduce your IRS installment arrangement or payment plan.  There are many considerations that will apply specifically to your situation that require the expertise of a Mesa AZ IRS resolution professional.  Scott Allen E.A. offers a free initial consultation and can explain how to posture yourself before committing to an IRS payment plan or installment arrangement.  Scott will also advise you of the pros and cons of all applicable IRS settlement options.  Call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300 to schedule an appointment.

John (a current client) received help from Scott Allen EA at Tax Debt Advisors to settle his IRS back taxes into a low monthly payment plan. All four years that he owed for were negotiated into a $290 per month payment plan.  This is just one of thousands of examples that could be shown.

We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers for Statute of Limitations Issues

Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers

It may take four to six weeks after you file your returns for the IRS to assess the tax due including interest and penalties.  The date of the assessment starts the 10 year statute of limitations clock.  Once the statute expires, so does the IRS tax debt and the associated interest and penalties.  There are certain actions that can extend the statute such as filing an Offer in Compromise.

If you feel you have a Mesa AZ IRS tax debt that has been in collections for a long time, it is possible to get information from the IRS that will tell you exactly when the tax debt will expire.  Scott Allen E.A. has the expertise to advise you of all of your options to take advantage of having your IRS debt in Mesa Arizona expire under the statute of limitation rules.  Scott Allen E.A. offers a free initial consultation.

Scott Allen E.A. will often get asked if negotiating an IRS installment arrangement will add time to the statute of limitations. No, agreeing to an installment agreement for an old IRS debt will not add more time to the clock. That is exactly what was negotiated for Nicole and her ten years of back taxes owed ranging from 2009 thru 2019. Upon a detailed financial analysis Scott Allen E.A. knew he could negotiate a low $202 per month payment plan knowing full well that the debt will not be paid off before it expires. The IRS knows this as well. She will pay the $202 per month towards her back tax debt until they expire or get paid off (whatever comes first). Scott Allen E.A., one of Mesa Arizona’s top IRS problem solvers sees this happen all the time. This is why it is important to look at all the rules and options first before selecting one.

We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers for IRS Substitute for Return (SFR)

What to do if the IRS files a Substitute for Return filing

If you fail to file, it is only a matter of time before the IRS will file a Substitute for Return.  This is the IRS method of assessing a tax so that they can collect from your wages or bank accounts even though you have not filed a return.  The IRS can levy your wages or garnish your bank account even if you would not have owed on a return had you filed it on time.

As you would guess the IRS prepares the return in the most negative way possible.  Not because they want to punish you, but because they don’t know what your filing status is or number of dependents and deductions or expenses you are entitled too.

The good news is that the IRS will allow you to file a correct (or original) return to reduce the liability.  The bad news is that if your correct return shows a refund and it is more than three years delinquent, the IRS will not pay you the refund or allow you to use it against other IRS tax debts owed on other years.  The IRS will not allow you to discharge taxes in bankruptcy on a tax return filed as a Substitute for Return either.

Contacting  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. of Arizona if you have back tax returns to file gives you the best chance of getting the best settlement possible with the IRS.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc in Arizona  has resolved over 113,000 IRS tax debts.  Call  today to schedule a free initial consultation at 480-926-9300.  Now is the time to act and Scott Allen E.A. is the right choice.

Scott Allen EA was able to assist Daniel in protesting the IRS Substitute for Return filings they did for him on some back tax returns. After getting the tax liability as low as possible Scott negotiated a low monthly payment of only $85/month. See the IRS approval notice below.

We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problems Solvers to Minimize IRS Tax Debt on Back Taxes

Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers

If you have not filed for several years it is likely the IRS has filed Substitute for Returns better known as SFR’s.  To minimize the IRS tax debt it is imperative that you file a correct return within three years of the due date or you will lose any refund.

The reason that a correct return will minimize the IRS tax debt is that the IRS is unaware of what you are entitled to deduct on your return.  This would include but is not limited to the following:

• Filing status
• Number of dependents
• Mortgage interest and property taxes on your home.
• Auto license fees
• Medical expenses
• Charitable donations
• Cost basis of any stock sales
• Business expenses

We are Mesa Arizona’s Top IRS Problem Solvers to Avoid Criminal Punishment

Scott Allen EA of Mesa Arizona’s Tax Debt Advisors

Let’s start out with what is true and what is false in this area.  What is false is more important for you to remember than what is true.  That’s because most web sites scare you with what is false rather than helping you by reducing your stress level with what is true.

Truth—If you fail to file a tax return you can be punished with one year in jail for each year you did not file.

Falsehood—In 44 years, we have never seen this happen once to one of our clients or anyone else.  All you have to do to avoid criminal prosecution is file your Mesa Arizona back tax returns.  The IRS criminal cases that you hear about on the news are due to Arizona taxpayers refusing to file or filing fraudulent tax returns.

Failing to file a return is like a bad parking ticket.  It is not a hit and run crime where you will go to prison.  It is important that you work with an IRS Resolution Specialist in Arizona like Scott Allen E.A. who will tell you the truth and not try to scare or intimidate you into retaining his services.  Tax Debt Advisors offers a free initial consultation and you can schedule your appointment with Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300.  You will only work with Scott.  He does 100% of your IRS resolution work.

Here is an IRS Notice CP21A showing an adjustment made on a back tax return for a client. Scott Allen EA filed an amendment to correct the filing status that was done incorrectly by a previous preparer. Correcting this before negotiating a payment plan was important to do. As you can see it saved the client over $2,200 in back taxes owed.

Tax Debt Advisors just finished up a Mesa IRS Offer in Compromise for a client. View the acceptance letter below.

Mesa IRS Offer in Compromise

Mesa IRS Offer in Compromise

Mr. Morris came in about two years ago to meet with Scott Allen EA. He was behind on a couple years of tax returns. He was in a rut with a tax debt from a previous business gone bad.  Due to not being able to pay the payroll taxes the debt was transferred to him personally as civil penalties. In addition to the civil penalty debt there were also two years of 1040 tax debt. Upon a detailed evaluation of his tax matter it was determined that Mr. Morris qualified for a Mesa IRS Offer in Compromise. Before submitting the Offer he first had to get him into compliance with his tax filings.  It took over a year to complete and get it approved but it was approved.  The worst thing you can do is submit an offer in compromise if it does not have a chance to get accepted.  Meet with Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors to determine if you are a viable candidate to settle your IRS debt in a lump sum agreement. He will meet with you for a free initial consultation.
