No more Mesa AZ IRS Garnishment

How to stop a Mesa AZ IRS Garnishment

Yes, a Mesa AZ IRS garnishment can be stopped and in many cases it can be stopped before your next paycheck. The IRS will issue garnishment notice to your employer when you owe them for unpaid back taxes and/or behind on filing your tax returns. Your employer is required by law to withhold a chunk of your paycheck and send it to the IRS. Often times it can be as much as 30-40% of your take home pay. Your employer will respond to the Mesa AZ IRS garnishment notice until the debt is fully satisfied or they receive a notice of release of levy. Its always better to get compliant with the IRS before a garnishment notice is sent out but if that isn’t the case you still have options.

How to get the IRS to send out a notice of release of levy to an employer?

In one sentence, you need to get compliant! Scott Allen EA of Tax Debt Advisors Inc can help you do so. To get the IRS to issue a notice of release on the Mesa AZ IRS garnishment an agreement needs to be negotiated and approved by the IRS. An agreement could be a currently non collectible status, a payment plan, or an agreement to full pay in 90 days to give you some examples. Once the IRS approves an agreement they have to send out a release of levy to your employer. Scott Allen EA will typically do most of this work over the phone with the IRS to expedite the process. By mail, things can take weeks to happen. Most taxpayers do not have weeks to wait as their next paycheck may only be a few days away. Time is of the essence and Scott Allen EA understands this. He will work into the evening if it means you have a shot as getting 100% of your next paycheck.

As your IRS power of attorney in this process he will represent you from start to finish to make sure everything is done right, and right the first time!

He received a Mesa AZ IRS garnishment notice but rather than having the IRS suck 32% of his take home pay Scott was able to negotiate his back taxes into a very manageable $390/month payment plan. This was all negotiated before his next payday and David’s wages were never garnished. Both years he owes for are included into that arrangement. Take a look as the IRS approval notice below. No more Mesa AZ IRS garnishment to worry about for David!

Call Tax Debt Advisors in Mesa AZ to get IRS Auditors to Listen to You

IRS Auditors in Mesa AZ

If you are successful in getting Mesa AZ IRS auditors to listen, you have a much greater chance of having successful results.  Remember to the following suggestions:

  • Do whatever you can to not postpone your first appointment.  If necessary suggest you get together sooner if it is impossible to meet at the suggested time.  Almost always the IRS auditor will not be able to meet with you sooner and allow you to have a postponement without it damaging the auditor’s impression of you.
  • Hire a professional to represent you at the audit.  Taxpayers almost always talk more than they have to and this just opens the door to more scrutiny from the IRS auditor.
  • If you don’t know the answer to an auditor’s question, simply say, “I don’t know.  I will get back with the answer.  When do you need that information?”  It is much easier for a representative to say they don’t know the answers to areas that could cost you lots of money if not handled correctly.

Do I Need an IRS Attorney in Mesa, AZ if I get an Installment Agreement Default Notice?

IRS Attorney in Mesa AZ

No, this is not a legal matter.  However, you will need to provide all of your financial information to determine if you IRS payment plan should remain the same, go up or go down.  The IRS will likely require you to have your payments come directly out of your checking account or if you have had a track record of default the IRS may want the payments to come directly from your pay check.

You have 30 days to respond to this notice or levy action will follow.  My suggestion is to have a free consultation with Scott Allen E.A. rather than with an IRS Attorney Mesa AZ.   Scott can determine the lowest amount allowed by law that you should pay the IRS.  If your financial situation has worsen since the time you entered into your installment arrangement you may qualify for non-collectible status and not be required to make any monthly payment. He will also review all the other settlement options to determine if an IRS installment arrangement is the best option for you.  You can reach Scott Allen E.A. at 480-926-9300.

stopirsaction.com — What are the IRS Collection Priorities for 2020?

stopIRSaction.com

1)      The IRS is filing IRS tax liens on all tax debts.  Revenue Officers are now required to file Federal Tax Liens as soon as they know there are taxes owed.  The number of tax liens has risen from a low of 410,220 in 2018 to 543,604 in 2019.  The IRS is making sure that they secure the tax debt before taxpayers can sell assets and use the money for other purposes.

2)      The Automated collection Service (ACS) has started issuing levies against wages and bank accounts immediately after the mandatory 30 day waiting period.  Normally the IRS would take months before issuing levies.  In the past ACS has given taxpayers 30 days to file any unfiled tax returns and another 30 days to propose a settlement.  We are now seeing ACS give as little as 3 days to file returns or make a settlement proposal.

3)      The IRS is taking more aggressive action on collecting on the trust fund recovery penalty.  Between 2012 and 2017 less than 24% of  assessments were collected.  Manny trust fund assessment penalties went several years before the IRS would try to collect.  By that time the taxpayer was less able to pay the IRS.  If you are behind on your payroll taxes, expect Revenue Officers to start immediate collection action after they assess it.

4)      If you are a non-filer or continue to owe year after year, the IRS has targeted you as a high priority.  The IRS knows that they may not be able to collect on past taxes but they will only accept this if you are staying current on this year’s tax liability.

With the huge budget deficits mounting each year and our national debt growing to dangerous proportions, congress has asked the IRS commissioner to step the timing of collection actions.  If you are struggling with any of the high priority items mentioned, contact me to discuss how you can settle your IRS matter before it reaches a point of crisis.
