We can help you with these tax problems
The IRS can be very aggressive about tax collection, and as wage garnishment drives home, the IRS really shouldn’t be taken lightly. Once the IRS has failed to get someone’s attention via repeated letters and warnings about taxes owed, the next step is a deduction of money from an employee’s wages. Want to avoid getting to this stage or stop the IRS from taking a chunk of your paycheck? We can help you understand how garnishments work and what steps you can take to prevent them.
The IRS has an end goal — to get the taxes you owe them. One of the ways the IRS can do this is by legally seizing your property, which is what an IRS levy permits. It can also garnish wages, take money from your bank or financial accounts, sell or seize your vehicle or other personal property. The IRS will notify you before this stage, however. If you do receive an IRS bill labeled Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing, contact us immediately!
The IRS follows through on what it says, so ignoring a letter and hoping it goes away simply isn’t going to cut it. If you do receive a letter of this nature, check the facts. Notice something incorrect? Write back and explain the error or missing information and wait to see if the situation is rectified. However, you should be wary if you’ve reached this stage — being a little more proactive and getting a tax expert on your side is the best idea and it will help you avoid suffering at the hands of the IRS.
IRS Audit Notification
Received an IRS Audit letter? There may be no need to panic but make sure you notice deadlines associated with the letter and review contested items within the deadline. Prepare your response accordingly. Being selected for an audit isn’t always a bad thing, and you might not have made an error or been dishonest. Even so, these audits can be time-consuming and stressful, just like everything else about the IRS tends to be.
Did you miss the tax deadline and not file your return at all? The IRS might just go ahead and file a return for you, known as a substitute return. These are going to be missing the standard deductions a tax preparer would include for you, for your benefit. The best approach, of course, would be to file on time!
If you file a tax return but fail to pay tax after a demand for payment has been made, a federal tax lien arises, by law in favor of the United States. This is upon all property and rights to property of the person with the unpaid tax. Essentially, in such a scenario, you’ve given the IRS the authority to seize any processes from sales of real estate. If there are other parties owed money by the same delinquent taxpayer, the government then gets priority.
All is not doom and gloom when it comes to the IRS. Becoming eligible for an offer-in-compromise settlement, as the name indicates, allows a taxpayer and the IRS to settle tax liabilities for less than the total amount owed. However, this will rarely be offered if the IRS believes the liability can be paid in full by the taxpayer. If presented, such a settlement can save thousands of dollars.
A joint tax return filing status allows certain benefits for married taxpayers. Both such taxpayers are jointly and individually responsible for the tax and any penalties associated with the return, even in the case of a divorce. However, in some cases, a spouse will be relieved of the tax, interest, and penalties on a joint tax return. The types of relief available are innocent spouse relief, separation of liability, and equitable relief.
