Are There Ways Out of IRS Problems?


By Qual-i-Tax, Accounting And Tax Preparation Services

IRS Problems are unlike many other problems in life. They simply don’t go away by themselves. Sometimes facing the problem instead of sweeping it under the rug is all it takes to get back on track.

The solutions to solve IRS Problems often include filing old tax returns to get in current compliance with the IRS. The IRS will not negotiate with anyone unless they have filed all income tax returns and/or payroll tax returns.

We have easy ways to complete old tax returns. We realize that many taxpayers have lost records or just can't find them! We can help reconstruct information and get those old tax returns filed.

You Have Options!

Once we’ve filed all your old tax returns, then the negotiations begin. Many tax firms will promise you that they can settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar through the IRS Offer in Compromise program. Through the Offer In Compromise program, you may qualify to pay much less tax debt than you currently owe. The IRS looks at these old tax liabilities and knows it can't collect most of them. So they set up this great program which allows taxpayers to pay a small part of what they owe to settle up on old income tax and/or payroll tax liabilities.

It is true that Offers in Compromise are possible and you can settle up with the IRS for much less than your current amount of debt; however, these types of deals do not work out as often as some national firms would like you to believe! Beware of false promises!

Qual-i-Tax has the skill and knowledge to give you the best possible chance to settle your tax debt with an Offer in Compromise for pennies on the dollar. But if you do not qualify for the Offer in Compromise program, we can provide you with other options! Unlike most of the national tax firms, we don’t promise you solutions that we cannot deliver. What we can promise you is that we will come up with the best arrangement possible to end this IRS nightmare and get your life back to normal. Depending on your situation, we can work out one of the following three arrangements: Negotiate a monthly payment you can afford to pay that will relieve the tax debt and remove wage garnishments; Convince the IRS that you cannot currently afford to make any payments on your tax debt, thus removing wage garnishments and postponing collection attempts until you get through these tough times; or Negotiate a settlement amount with the IRS through an Offer in Compromise, significantly reducing your current tax obligation. Who knows when the Offer in Compromise option will end? The economy is suffering and the IRS is doing anything they can to collect every dime they’re owed.

We may also make a request for the IRS to abate penalties for "Reasonable Cause." This can be as simple as explaining to the IRS that, for example, your basement flooded – of course there are certain things that should be included in the request to increase your chances of approval.
