If you have tax returns from prior years that need to be filed and your records are lost or incomplete, you need professional assistance from Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.  Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. offers a free consultation and can be reached at 480-926-9300. Often times it is best to not fight the IRS alone and to go in with proper experienced representation.

Melissa is someone who hired Scott as her Power of Attorney to file her tax returns in Chandler AZ. A few of her tax years were already filed but were filed incorrectly misreporting income. Because of this error, the IRS initiated an audit and assessed her over $10,000 in additional taxes owed. Scott Allen E.A. was able to research the matter and advised her of preparing an amended tax return in protest to what the IRS did.  They did just that and as you can see from the approval notice below that it reduced what she owes the IRS by $5,000. After getting this all corrected for her they are now negotiating her IRS debt into one low payment plan settlement.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.—What do I do if I default on my Chandler AZ IRS Installment Arrangement?

Help with Chandler AZ IRS Installment Arrangement

If you do not make a monthly payment or if your check does not clear, the IRS will send you a default notice.  If this is your first default and you have the ability to catch up on your missed payments including your current payment, call the IRS as soon as you get this notice and they will likely reinstate your IRS payment plan.  They may require future payments by debiting your checking or savings account to make sure you give them priority over other debts.

There may be a silver lining in your default.  Perhaps you really qualify for a lower IRS payment.  If you negotiated you own payment plan, the IRS is just another bill collector doing their job.  You may not have been aware of all of the obligations that the IRS needs to consider before coming to an amount that needs to be paid monthly.  Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc.  near Chandler Arizona offers a free initial consultation to advise you on what he can do you remedy the situation—lower your monthly payment or advise you to consider other IRS settlement options.  Call today at 480-926-9300 to schedule an appointment.

IRS audit reconsideration in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

What is audit reconsideration and when should I file for one?   

A taxpayer can file for audit reconsideration in Arizona when you want the IRS to examine your return again.  The reasons you may want the IRS to open your return for a second time include: information that would have reduced your tax liability on the original return is now available, the IRS did not process the return you sent in to replace an IRS SFR return, or there were errors by the IRS in the original assessment of tax.

You should not file for audit reconsideration if you signed an audit report, if you agreed to an Offer in Compromise for the year(s) in question, if you signed an agreement with IRS Appeals or had a determination from Tax Court regarding the assessed liability.

Audit reconsideration requires a written request along with any documentation that was not previously taken into consideration with the original assessment.  Once the IRS is “reconsidering” your return, you must: continue making payments on your installment arrangement.  If the audit reconsideration fails, you still can file an appeal.  We have found that the longer you pursue your efforts, the closer you get to “Santa Claus.”  But you must be a “good boy” and have reasonable proof of your position.

Below is a recent audit reconsideration in Arizona that was handled by Scott Allen EA. It was for a 2012 tax return. As you can see it originally have a balance due of $43,871. Upon submitted proper information provided by the taxpayer he was able to get $20,000 of the IRS debt reduced.  Don’t go about audit reconsideration on your own. For these type of cases representation is usually in your best interest.

Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. knows Mesa AZ IRS Wage Garnishment Regulations

Mesa AZ IRS wage garnishment is the IRS most potent weapon to get taxpayer’s attention when tax liabilities have remain unpaid and the taxpayer is not in a settlement option with the IRS.  Wage garnishments will take most of your paycheck.  This is just the first step in the IRS attempt to collect the tax liability.

Before the Mesa AZ IRS wage garnishment notice goes to your employer, the IRS has made several attempts to notify you of their intentions.

The IRS really does not want to issue someone a Mesa AZ wage garnishment.  They know that this is a burden for taxpayers and sets them up as the bad guy.  They only do this as a last resort.  When this happens you need to get serious about getting professional help.  Scott Allen E.A. of Tax Debt Advisors, Inc. has the experience to end your Mesa AZ IRS wage garnishment.

IRS Levy in Arizona: IRS help from Tax Debt Advisors, Inc

IRS Levy—Everything you need to know before calling me for a free consultation.

What is an IRS levy?

A levy from the IRS is a legal seizure of your assets to pay off your tax debt.  A levy differs from a lien.  A lien is a legal claim against your assets.  A levy actually takes the asset to satisfy the IRS tax debt.

When does the IRS levy?

An IRS levy will only take place after they have assess the tax and sent you a notice and demand for payment, and you neglect or refuse to pay the taxes owed, and they sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice).

The notice is considered received when it is given to you by an agent, when it is mailed to your home or place of business or sent to your last known address by certified or registered mail.

What should I do when I receive an IRS notice of levy?

If you have been working with an IRS revenue officer or agent, you can request to speak to their manager to review you case and explain your position.  The next step would be to request a Collection Due Process Hearing with the Office of Appeals.  This must be done within 30 days of the date of the notice.

What should I be prepared to do when I meet with the Office of Appeals?

If you have paid all the taxes, provide proof of payment.  On occasion the IRS does apply tax payments to the wrong account or to the wrong type of tax or tax year.

If you are in bankruptcy when you receive the levy notice, your levy will be entitled to an automatic stay until you come out of bankruptcy.

If the IRS made an error in computing the tax owed, bring documentation that will show that the amount owed is less than the assessed balance.

If the IRS statute of limitations has passed, the levy will be considered null and void.

If you entered into a payment plan or some other collection option, the levy should be released pending proof that you have stayed in compliance with your tax filings and monthly installment arrangement.

If you feel that you are an innocent or injured spouse, provide proof of your reasons for seeking relief from the tax debt.

What if the IRS was wrong in levying my bank account?

You have 21 days to resolve your matter before funds are turned over to the IRS.  If you paid bank charges due to an IRS error, you may be entitled to a reimbursement.  You have 30 days to appeal your request to the Tax Court.

Can the IRS levy my state refunds?

Yes, under the State Income Tax Levy Program, the IRS may levy your state tax refund check.

Can the IRS levy my Social Security check?

Yes, the IRS can garnish up to 15% of your Social Security check through the Automated Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP).

How can I help you resolve an IRS levy?

The key to getting the greatest benefit from a representative is to provide the requested information quickly and making sure all information requested is provided at the same time.  One piece of information can hold up the levy release even though you have provided the other ninety-nine.  Information needs to be complete—most delays are caused by clients who are sloppy in providing all of the information requested.

If you owe the amount that has been levied, it is doubtful that the IRS will refund the amount taken.  The release will generally apply to any future amounts that would have been taken after the release is granted.

Make sure that you provide me with all of the facts.  Clients sometimes selectively “forget” to mention items that they do not want to disclose or are embarrassed about.  If you are uncomfortable providing all of the information needed to release you levy to your representative, you probably have the wrong person representing you or you are unwilling to face the realities of resolving your tax matter.
