How We Work
In today's world of communication technology, you no longer have to settle for a local tax preparer to assist you when fighting an IRS lien, tax garnishment or other tax problems. You can find help for your tax problems from an expert who handles these matters on a daily basis for other people similarly hassled by the IRS and is up to date with the most current methods to help you in your fight.
We start with finding the cause of your tax problem, and give you the tools to keep your problem from occurring again. Our professionals immediately file your Power of Attorney with the IRS, and begin gathering your records including a copy of your IRS Master File. Once we have a Power of Attorney on file for you, all IRS harassment should stop immediately. You have the right to insist that the IRS speak to us, even if an agent says otherwise.
The next big step is filing and paying currently. This is an area that we pride ourselves on, great tax work. Many other firms see tax return preparation as unimportant. This could not be more untrue. There is no better way to solve a tax problem than thru great tax work with a professional.
Many times we have found that by doing a thorough job on the tax returns, our clients really only owe a small amount that they could afford to pay, or in some cases were actually owed money by the IRS. When you are in compliance with the tax laws and have met your obligation to file and pay the current tax, the IRS may negotiate, even if balances are still due.
We will also help with tax planning to be sure that you pay no more than you are required. While we believe in paying the tax, no one wants to overpay. In the year 2006, $2.2 billion in refunds were forfeited because people did not file their returns and claim their refunds. No one wants to be in this number. Read more about this on our page titled Filing Tax Returns.
Once you are in compliance, we can move to the next phase of the solution. That is to settle up with the IRS. This may be an Offer in Compromise, a Partial Payment Installment Agreement, being declared Currently Not Collectable or just making agreeable terms to pay the tax. Sometimes just paying them can be a frustrating and complex chore. In many cases writing the IRS a check will not solve the problem but makes it worse. The money disappears to penalties and interest that you did not know about, and the debt survives. This is most especially true when trying to get rid of Federal Tax Liens.
