File Back Tax Returns in Mesa

Can I still file back tax returns in Mesa?

The answer is most definitely yes. Scott Allen EA receives calls all the time with taxpayers asking, “is it possible to file back tax returns in Mesa?”  Just because you miss one year, three years, or eleven years of filing your taxes it doesn’t mean they wont let you file a current year tax return. Clients will also ask Scott Allen EA, “do you think the IRS forgot about me? I have not file a tax return in four years and I have not heard from them yet?”  Trust this one rule, the IRS may be slow and inefficient at what they do but they will never forget about you. Eventually time catches up and the IRS will force a taxpayer to file back tax returns in Mesa by either:

  • sending you a “lock-in” letter forcing you to withhold taxes from your current employer at the highest possible rate and unable to change it for three years
  • filings a substitute for return (SFR) in your behalf giving you a balance due on back taxes owed
  • filing a tax lien
  • bank levy
  • wage garnishment
  • assigning your case to a local IRS Revenue Officer

Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc that whether you have to file back tax returns in Mesa for two years, four years, or ten years is it always better to reach out to the IRS before they reach out. Because by doing do we can prevent them from doing any of those negative actions against you mentioned above. Once an IRS wage garnishment has been started 1) it is difficult to get it stopped and 2) it is difficult to correct the matter when the IRS is taking 30% of your paycheck. With Scott Allen EA as your IRS Power of Attorney he can represent you and put a hold to any collection activity before it ever begins. Then once that hold is placed on the account it will remain on hold as long as the commitments are met to get the taxpayer fully compliant.

What does it mean to be fully compliant?

In addition to file back tax returns in Mesa a taxpayer also needs to be sure they are having proper W2 withholdings with the federal and state or making monthly or quarterly estimated tax payments if they are self employed. The IRS needs to be certain that if they are going to work out a payment plan or offer in compromise settlement that you will not owe on next years taxes when it is due April 15th. Scott Allen EA will be there for you next year by sending you a reminder letter in January and a phone call in February to come in a get your current year taxes prepared, filed and paid on time.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc has been in business since 1977 and Scott Allen EA bought the family business in 2011. Together they have settled over 100,000 IRS debts. Below is just one recent example of a successful case where Scott Allen EA was able to file back tax returns in Mesa and save Trevor $77,638 on his 2016 tax return. It was a hard case to get thru (especially post Covid-19 and the IRS’s limited staff) but it was all worth it obviously. View the IRS approval notice below.

Enrolled Agent vs Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Enrolled Agent or a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney for IRS Relief?

Many struggling taxpayers are under the assumption that their IRS problem is severe enough to require hiring a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  However a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney is only required in criminal or fraudulent cases which is in less then 2% of IRS problems.  If you are going thru a random audit, have back tax returns to file, or owe the IRS more then you can pay back the good news is that none of these situations are of a criminal nature.  Take a deep breath because your situation is only delinquent.  Scott Allen is a licensed Mesa AZ Enrolled Agent specifically licensed to handle delinquent taxpayer situations.  As your IRS Power of Attorney he can represent you before the Internal Revenue Service.  Under his watch and directions you will not be levied, garnished or summons.

Scott Allen EA wanted to share with you a recent success he had with a client this year.  By challenging an audit the IRS placed on a client for his 2010 tax return nearly $60,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties were reduced.  A copy of the approval notice from the IRS is below for your viewing.  An expensive Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney was not needed to get this done. Rather finding the right person with the right relationships with IRS personal acting in a timely matter is what’s required.

Stopping Mesa AZ IRS Garnishments since 1977

What do I do when I have Mesa AZ IRS Garnishments on my wages?

This is about the most shocking thing the IRS can do to get your attention.  That is what the IRS is trying to go with Mesa AZ IRS garnishments.  They really don’t want to take your paycheck but because you have neglected all their letters and notices, now they want you to know they mean business.  If you have not filed any Mesa AZ back tax returns, now is the time to do so.  By filing correct returns, you may even reduce the liability the IRS says you owe.  Filing all of your past tax returns is referred to at the IRS as being in compliance.

Every day counts when your wages are being taken.  Not always, but often times it is possible to file all of your returns and get a release on Mesa AZ IRS garnishments before you next paycheck.  So make the most of every day. Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors has the expertise to prepare your returns within 24-48 hours and immediately contact the IRS to start the release process.  The amount you owed the IRS will determine the amount of financial information you will need to provide.  Scott Allen E.A. of Mesa AZ offers a free initial consultation and can be reached at 480-926-9300 for an appointment.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc is a local Mesa Arizona family owned company for the last 40+ years that specializes specifically in IRS problem matters.  We prepare tax returns and evaluate all settlement options that are available to you.  Scott Allen, EA is fully licensed to represent taxpayers before the IRS.  It is not necessary to use a tax attorney except of matters of fraud or criminal.  99% of IRS problem cases in Mesa AZ are not of criminal or fraudulent nature.  Don’t overpay for the 1% of protection that you don’t need.  This is our niche and this is all that we do.  For a free no pressure consultation call me today.

See what Scott Allen EA did for his client Michael to stop Mesa AZ IRS garnishments. He was able to settle his four years of back taxes owed into one monthly payment plan of $680/month. This agreement was negotiated so that the IRS would NOT file a tax lien either. A tax lien becomes public information and Michael did not want this.

Mesa AZ IRS Problems no more

If you have serious Mesa Arizona IRS problems, unfiled tax returns or owe the IRS more than you can pay back, who should you use? Think for a moment before continuing to read further.  Who should you use?

The answer to this question might surprise you, but it is the first question you need answered before seeking help in dealing with the IRS.

If you have cancer you should see an Oncologist that specializes in your type of cancer.  But you certainly would not call an Oncologist unless you have cancer.  This analogy applies to Mesa AZ IRS matters.  The only time you need the services of a tax attorney for a tax problem is when you need attorney client privileges.  This is only needed when you have committed a criminal act.

Listen to this…In 45 years, Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has resolved over 113,000 IRS tax debts, using the Offer in Compromise program, payment plans, tax motivated bankruptcy, non-collectible status, or expiring the tax debt using the statute of limitations.  Not one of these cases required the need for a Mesa Arizona Tax Attorney.  None of these clients committed a criminal or fraudulent act.  Not filing or paying your taxes is not criminal.  Not one of our clients have had their home seized or faced jail time.  It just doesn’t happen in real life situation.  The IRS would rather just work out the matter and move on…AND SO WOULD I.

These tax settlement options are NOT CANCER.  They are options that require the services of the best person in your local area that has performed these services consistently for several years.   Tax Attorneys have a way of using fear and intimidation to scare potential clients into over paying for Mesa AZ IRS resolution services that can best be done by an Enrolled Agent. In the 45 years we have been in business we have referred only 4 clients who had tax CANCER (committed a criminal act).  You would be upset if a cancer doctor told you that you had cancer, when all you had was a severe sore throat…but got billed for curing cancer.

In the vast majority of cases, you have a serious “sore throat,”  you are not in “stage 4 cancer”.  So rather than over pay, consider having a free initial consultation with Scott Allen E.A. first.  If you need the services of a  Mesa Arizona tax attorney, Scott will be the first one to refer you to one who specializes with your particular need.

If you have unfiled tax returns, Scott Allen E.A. can prepare the returns within 24-48 hours of having all of the information needed file the back tax returns in Mesa AZ.  Call Scott Allen E.A. today and save yourself the expense of using a “cancer doctor” when all you have is a sore throat. Schedule your appointment today to meet with Scott by calling 480-926-9300.  Let him be your Mesa Arizona IRS Power of Attorney!
See a recent accomplishment by Scott Allen EA for his client Matthew. Scott helped him settle his “sore throat” caused by an IRS audit that he didn’t initially respond to.  As you can see, over $11,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties were reduced thru the audit reconsideration process. It took a bit of time from beginning to end but victory was accomplished. This is just one of thousands of successes by Scott Allen EA.

Do I Need an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ if I get an IRS CP 2000 Letter?

Scott Allen EA or an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ

No, this is not a legal matter.  This letter is responding to income items not on your return that third parties have reported as paid to you.  If you agree with the amounts not reported you can simply sign the letter and mail it in.  The IRS will send a bill for the amount of tax owed on the items not reported.  If the items not reported have a cost basis such as stock sales you need to disagree with the CP 2000 letter and send in documentation showing the cost of the stock that was sold—in other words what you paid for the stock.  This will reduce the tax liability or if you had a lost on the sale of stock, it would result in a refund instead of a balance due. There are a number of other things that can cause the IRS to issue a CP2000 notice and its worth having a tax professional look into the matter.

Scott Allen E.A. is available for a free consultation if you have questions about your CP 2000 letter or need assistance in responding back to the IRS.  Scott can be reached at 480-926-9300.  He has come across many of these notices and has been successful in response to them.  I don’t believe using an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ is necessary to get this type on mater resolved. These IRS notice letters have deadlines associated with them so it is important to response timely to them.

Need help with a payment plan? After you get your IRS debt as low as legally possible consult with Scott Allen EA to discuss your payment plan options. See a recent example of a taxpayer who used Scott for his representation rather than an IRS Tax Attorney Mesa AZ. View the approval notice below.

Shhh…I am a Delinquent Taxpayer. Who do I call?

Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney ?

First, being a delinquent taxpayer is not a legal issue and does not require the help of a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  However, being a delinquent taxpayer can cause the IRS to close down your business, breakup marriages, damage your health, and cause many sleepless nights.  Most taxpayers who miss filing one year for a “good reason” become paralyzed the following year and neglect to file a second year.  Once the IRS has not contacted them, the fear of being contacted by the IRS and facing the problem is too much for most taxpayers.  Most taxpayers fear the terrible penalties and interest the IRS adds to the tax liability and are unaware of IRS programs in place to help get taxpayers back in good standing.  Many taxpayers ignore the IRS until their bank account or paychecks have been levied.  Now taxpayers have to face their problem to keep their paycheck and sometimes even their job.  Many times their first thought is that they need a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney when in fact they don’t.

It is critical that you are certain that you are working with the right person to get you bank on track with the IRS.  Work with someone like Scott Allen E.A. in Mesa AZ who has been successful at resolving hundreds of IRS tax debts.  Scott can be reached for a private consultation at no cost.  Call him today at 480-926-9300.

Terry was strapped with a monthly payment plan on her Mesa AZ IRS debt of over $1,500/month. She met with Scott Allen (an Enrolled Agent) who was able to reevaluate her financial situation and successful cut her monthly IRS payment in half. Now she is only paying $750/month due on the 28th of each month. (See IRS notice below).

If you feel like the IRS is taking advantage of you requiring you to pay more than you can afford give Scott Allen E.A. a call to discuss your options. He will let you know if there is a better settlement option available for you or if you are in the best possible plan with them.

I need IRS HELP: IRS Tax Attorney in Mesa AZ: Yes or No?

No, IRS help is not a legal matter.  Here are some suggestions on what to look for in choosing an IRS representative:

  • You should be entitled to an initial free consultation.  At this meeting the person you meet with must be the one who will represent you—NOT A SALESMAN!
  • You should feel that all of your questions are answered in a manner you understand.  If you do not understand the answers you are getting, you a probably dealing with someone who is not honest.
  • Make sure the person handling your case can start immediately.  Time is of the essence.  Sometimes a delay of a few hours can make a big difference in the work needed to be done and settlement options that are available.
  • Make sure your IRS representative is licensed in all 50 States.
  • Make sure you have the direct dial to your IRS representative and that he or she will be the only one you talk to about your IRS problem.
  • Work only with a firm that presents all of your IRS settlement options; not just the one they want you to accept.
  • Make sure you are quoted a flat fee for the work done.  Not a large upfront fee – but a quote of the the total costs of the process.  That will also require you to respond timely to the needs of your IRS representative.

Scott Allen E.A. (who is not an attorney) will provide his services in accordance to these recommendations.  Scott is available for a free consultation at 480-926-9300.  His firm has been serving clients with tax problems since 1977 and has successfully resolved over 114,000 IRS tax debts.

Before you make the decision to hire an IRS tax attorney in Mesa AZ for your IRS help please take 10 minutes and call me for a second opinion.  I can usually meet with you for a free consultation the same day you call – if necessary.

Thanks for considering me as your IRS problem option.  Make today a great day for you!

Why Use Scott Allen EA instead of a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney?

Make sure you feel comfortable with your IRS representation

•             Intimidation Factor—Most clients feel intimidated when using a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  You don’t need to add to the intimidation factor a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney on top of the intimidation factor of the IRS.

•             IRS Settlement Experience—The most important factor is the number of successful cases your representation has done.  Our firm has successfully resolved over 113,000 IRS tax debts over the last 40+ years.

•             Rapport with IRS Agents—The second most important factor is the relationship your IRS representative has with local IRS agents and IRS officers.  Our firm has work with almost all of the local IRS agents or officers that could be assigned to your case.  Because of our track record of success with IRS problems, IRS agents and IRS officers prefer working with someone who has expertise in settling IRS problems and provides the information in a timely manner.

Call Scott Allen E.A. for a free consultation at 480-926-9300 and put your mind at ease.  A problem with the IRS is stressful enough.  Selecting the right person to represent you is critical.  Scott Allen E.A. will provide the service you need to be successful in settling your matter with the IRS and won’t intimidate you in that process.  The company he works for is Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.  He prepares taxes (current and delinquent) and settles or negotiates IRS debts.  This is his niche and this is all that he does on a day in and day out basis.  Just last night he was here until 7:00pm because someone called in at 5:30pm and just found out his bank account had been levied by the IRS.  Rather than putting it off for another day, Scott met with the client and got started on the resolution to his case immediately.  Scott is not a bankruptcy Tax IRS Attorney dabbling in IRS problem work.  He is an Enrolled Agent licensed to prepare tax returns and represent taxpayers before the IRS.

Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney: Is it right? or is there a better alternative?

Why using a Mesa AZ IRS Tax attorney is not the best way to get your IRS matter resolved

  • Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorneys are far too expensive for almost 98% of the IRS settlement options available.
  • We have heard complaints from clients coming to us that they felt intimidated when asking a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney questions about their IRS case.
  • The strategy of most IRS Tax Attorneys in Mesa AZ, not all, but most is to bill you so much up front that they hope you run out of money before they actually have to solve your IRS problem.
  • IRS Tax Attorneys in Mesa AZ are generally very condescending to CPA’s and E.A.’s who in most cases have resolved far more IRS problems then they have.
  • Mesa Arizona IRS Tax Attorneys are needed in criminal matters.  They often make potential clients feel like they have an IRS matter that is or could become criminal in nature.  The fact of the matter is that is the last 40+ years we have only seen a few criminal cases and have immediately referred them to a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  Not one case evolved into a criminal case as we were working on resolving the matter—NOT ONE !
  • Mesa Arizona Attorneys are needed when filing a bankruptcy is the best settlement option.  However, working first with us you will be sent to the Mesa attorney only when your taxes are dischargeable in a bankruptcy.  We have seen literally thousands of bankruptcies filed by attorneys in Mesa before the taxes were dischargeable.  There is a two and a three year rule and Mesa attorneys are not willing to take the chance that you will come back to them later and often file the bankruptcy too soon and only remove consumer debt.
  • Many Mesa AZ IRS Tax attorneys are not able to prepare tax returns or are not as experienced in preparing returns as an E.A. or CPA.

So what should you do?  If you are budget conscious but still feel you, or, should I say still fear you need to use an attorney or that any attorney will provide better service, get your second opinion first with Scott Allen E.A. Then you will be able to compare intelligently the services provided and fees to complete the necessary work.  The choice will be obvious without any fear that you have made the wrong choice.  Scott is available for an in office or phone consultation.  Call him today at 480-926-9300 and put your mind at ease!

Here is a recent success a client had by using Scott Allen EA instead of a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney. William owed a ton of back taxes and had no way of paying anything back to them. Based upon his current financial situation, his employment, and everything going on in the new “Covid-19 world” he would qualify for a currently non collectible status. That is exactly what Scott Allen EA did for him. Click on the IRS settlement approval letter below.

Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney or Scott Allen EA

Should I hire a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney for my tax problem?

When a taxpayer is faced with an IRS problem they have many different options to resolve it. One might be to hire an expensive Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney. While that may be a viable option it may not be necessary. An Enrolled Agent can represent you before the IRS the same way a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney can. The only exception would be “client attorney privilege”.  However, owing the IRS money or having unfiled tax returns doesn’t require that “privilege”.  Its not a fraudulent or criminal situation. The taxpayer is simply delinquent.  Scott Allen EA can help get you current and compliant with the IRS once again. This is what he specializes in and it is all that he does right here in Mesa AZ.
