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.

Lower your tax liability: Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney not needed

Resolve IRS debts without needing a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Some common methods of reducing your IRS tax liability are:

*   Request a record of account and verify that all of your payments were received and credited correctly to the tax year in question.  The IRS will always apply payment to the oldest year first.  If you want your payment to go to a specific year, it must be noted on the check and on the correspondence accompanying the payment.  Occasionally the IRS will apply your payment to someone else’s account in error or to a tax debt you owe such as your corporation payroll tax liability instead of your individual liability.

*   If the IRS filed a substitute for return, file a correct return that shows that you owe less than the return prepared by the IRS.  Filing a return to reduce the liability on a substitute for return or to amend a return previously filed does not necessarily increase your chances of being audited.  If you amend a previously filed return, submit proof of your changes along with the amended return.  This will show the IRS that you have proof of your changes and will reduce the chances of being audited.

*   File IRS form 843 to request that penalties be abated.

If you are interested in a free consultation to determine if your tax liability can be reduced, call Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300. He is not a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney but rather a federally licensed Enrolled Agent able to handle your tax matter.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney

One of his clients came in with a couple unfiled tax returns and the IRS garnishing his retirement income (yes, the IRS can garnish your retirement or social security income).  They were taking his money and applying it to a tax debt on his 2009 tax return that he had never filed.  Actually, the IRS filed it for him giving him no room for expenses or deductions.  As you can see they took over $6,000 of his income to a debt that should never have been there in the first place.  What did Scott Allen EA do?  To sum it up he was able to get an IRS power of attorney authorization to represent him, contact the IRS to “gather up the facts”, prepare and file his missing returns, and get a stop to the garnishment.  Lastly, he was able to get the IRS to refund the money back to him within a reasonable period of time.

This may have been a case someone might think a Mesa AZ IRS tax attorney is required but as you can see it was not.  Scott Allen EA was able to aggressively represent his client in the best possible manner.  This client will be continuing to use his services on a yearly tax preparation basis.  Let Scott Allen EA at Tax Debt Advisors be your “one stop shop” in getting you IRS nightmare behind you.  He will meet with you for a free initial consultation.

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.

Mesa Enrolled Agent vs. Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney

Hire a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney ?

Experience means a lot to most of us, rightfully so.  Some will make the assumption that a tax attorney has more experience then the rest of the “league”. But, does a Mesa IRS tax attorney have more experience the a Mesa AZ Enrolled Agent?

It is a very good question anyone should ask who has an IRS debt problem or back tax returns that need to be filed. Taxpayers can confuse experience with education background.  Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors will admit that Mesa AZ IRS tax attorneys have more education but the critical question to ask is that education in IRS settlement work?  IRS settlement work is expertise unto itself. You cannot get it through a class or education.  It comes from years and years of working out IRS settlements for taxpayers like yourself and establishing good healthy relationships with the local IRS employees.  Scott Allen EA has worked with most of the local IRS agents multiple times.  That kind of relationship and trust can work to your advantage.

Over the past 41 years Tax Debt Advisors has resolved over 108,000 IRS debts. We pride ourselves on complete follow through service throughout the entire process.  There is more information to read about the IRS settlement process on his website.  Tax Debt Advisors has always been and always will be a family owned business that is now on to its second generation of ownership.  To find out if Tax Debt Advisors is the right choice for you call and schedule a free confidential appointment to meet with Scott Allen EA who is a licensed Enrolled Agent.  He can be reached at 480-926-9300.  He can handle the 98% of cases that do not require the need of a Mesa AZ IRS Tax Attorney.  Again, call Scott Allen EA first for your second opinion.

What option to settle IRS debt Mesa AZ ?

What option might you qualify for to settle IRS debt Mesa AZ

Far too often delinquent taxpayers have “tunnel vision” and only focus on one solution to settle IRS debt Mesa AZ.  It will be very difficult to get a realistic resolution with this type of attitude. With Tax Debt Advisors, Inc you will be introduced to the many different available options right up front.

Brent came in to meet with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc wanting to settle his IRS debt in an Offer in Compromise. He see’s it advertised on the TV and radio daily and knew he must do that. However, during a consultation with Scott Allen EA he learned the real truths about an Offer in Compromise and found out at this time he isnt going to qualify. Brent needed to negotiate a payment plan.  That is exactly what Tax Debt Advisors, Inc did for him.  After that process was complete penalty abatement was applied for as well. Guess what? The IRS accepted penalty relief on his 2009 tax return. That is a tax return with a due date over seven years ago. This IRS penalty abatement request saved Brent over $6,200 in IRS debt.

As Scott Allen EA likes to explain to his clients, “you need to pick the right battles with the IRS”.  This is a true statement. A proper representative will advise you upfront and honestly on all available options AND know what will and will not be successful before ever getting started.  The average cost to hire a tax professional to negotiate an offer in compromise is about $3,500 and takes 12-18 months.  Had Brent gone down that road blindly in “tunnel vision” he would have seen his Offer in Compromise denied, more interest and penalties accruing, 12 months of stress, and been out $3,500 in professional fees.

Don’t let that be the scenario for you. Find out the right option from the very first appointment with Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. Call today and schedule a free initial consultation.
