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.

  • The interest and penalties can double or triple the amount due by the time you file your return.
  • Social security benefits will be lost if you are self-employed and fail to file within three years of the due date.
  • Refunds will be lost if the returns are not filed within three years of the due date.
  • Earned income credit will be forfeited if you do not file within three years of the due date.

How to avoid an IRS audit in Arizona? IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

 Avoid IRS Audit for Arizona Residents

  • Use a tax program.  Manually prepared returns are pieces of paper begging for attention.
  • Don’t believe all the advice that shows up on the internet and news shows during tax filing season.  Some of the advice I have heard would actually increase the likelihood of being audited.
  • Extend the filing of your return.  I have yet to have a client come in for an audit that filed a return right before the October 15th deadline.  Of course the return has to be filed correctly.
  • Report all income that the IRS knows about.  That would include all W-2’s, 1099’s and K-1’s—especially the ones that your thought were not going to be reported to the IRS.
  • Avoid the home office deduction.  I have literally had to charge some clients more for the preparation of this tax form than the benefit they were getting.  The home office deduction is rarely worth the tax savings and the risk of an audit.  If you have a home office deduction that amount to $1,000 and you are in a 15% tax bracket the savings is only $150.

But if you do get audited, get professional help.  It will pay for itself each year you file in the future and minimize your exposure for the year or years being audited.

How long before the IRS discovers I have unfiled tax returns? From Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.

“I have unfiled tax returns…”

It may take several years before the IRS will contact you regarding unfiled tax returns.  However this works against you.  The interest and penalties on unfiled returns can double the amount you owe in just a few years.  As time goes by many records that can reduce your liability have been lost.  Your memory of what happened several years ago will fade and you will likely pay much more on your taxes if you had filed returns sooner.  Many clients miss one year and when nothing happens another year goes by and then another.  Before you know it six or seven years has passed and your tax problem will be getting more difficult to deal with each deadline missed.  There is also a serious psychological burden carried when you have unfiled tax returns.  You know that a day of reckoning will come and decisions that can be made are postponed and opportunities will be permanently lost.  Time is never on your side when you have unfiled tax returns.  By filing returns on time even if you do not have the money to pay taxes owed is far better than not filing and taking on additional penalties and interest.  Call me today for a free confidential initial consultation to get started.
