Filing your taxes is never a fun thing to do, but if you don't file them at all then the IRS will come calling. They have unbridled power to file a return on your behalf in their, not your, best interest.They have powerful collection tools and an unforgiving nature that makes this one of the worst mistakes anyone could make. Getting on their bad side isn’t easy; having years’ worth of unfiled returns only adds fuel to the fire!The IRS is always on the lookout for taxpayer’s who haven’t filed legally required income or payroll tax returns. If you have unfiled tax returns, it’s only a matter of time before they find out and demand the return and their money with penalties and interest! When it gets to a point where the IRS contacts you, the amount they claim you owe will be far greater th...

Even for honest taxpayers, the IRS can be extremely frightening. Unlike most other government agencies, the IRS has unbridled power to attack your wages, freeze your bank account and even confiscate your property, and that is enough to send a chill up the spine of any taxpayer.If you receive a letter from the IRS saying that you owe additional taxes, it is important not to panic. It may be a frightening situation, but there are things you can do to settle your tax debt and get back on the good side of the IRS. Taxpayers do have options when resolving tax disputes and paying additional taxes due, and simply knowing what those options are can set your mind at ease. As an expert Tax Resolution Firm, we encourage all readers facing a tax problem, whether it's the feds or the state,  to cont...

If you don't have money to pay what you owe the IRS, you have a few options to work with. Whatever you do, don’t ignore the letters from the IRS and don’t let your back tax problem go unattended. The IRS has a great deal of power when it comes to recovering money, they think is theirs.   When you owe the IRS money, they can garnish your wages, levy your bank accounts, put a lien on your home and seize other assets.   Here's what you can do if you find yourself not being able to pay your taxes. Note, we always recommend getting in touch with a tax resolution professional to help avoid the harsh penalties and interest that accrued on your back taxes. It’s far easier to navigate towards tax resolution if you have a professional working on your behalf. If you’d like to schedule a no-cost c...

When you owe money to the IRS, it is hard to think about anything else. While being in debt is never fun, no matter who the creditor is, the IRS enjoys almost unlimited power to collect the money they are due.Unlike your mortgage lender or credit card company, the Internal Revenue Service has the power to attach your wages, raid your bank account and even take your freedom. No other creditor even comes close in terms of its power and influence and taking on the agency on your own could be asking for trouble. If you have received a notice from the IRS, you need to act fast, and you need the right assistance in your corner. Taking on the IRS requires specific expertise, and that is why it is so important to work with a quality tax resolution company. Here are seven reasons why working wit...

 If you owe back taxes to the IRS, some amount of panic is understandable. After all, the Internal Revenue Service has the power of the federal government in its corner, something no other debt collector can claim. They are considered the most brutal collection agency on the planet. It is easy to freeze up and just do nothing when you owe back taxes to the IRS, but hiding from, or doing nothing about your tax debt will not make it go away. In fact, ignoring the taxes you owe will only make the situation worse, since interest and penalties can really add up. You also risk having your paycheck garnished (the IRS does not need a court order to do this) or your bank account levied. The IRS can also file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien making it all but impossible to obtain financing for a car ...

A growing number of people are leaving the world of traditional employment behind. These are the folks who are opening their own small businesses. The people who are embracing freelancing. And the men and women who are using gig work to make a good income.As this trend continues, many of those newly self-employed individuals are finding themselves at a loss, especially when tax season rolls around. One of the worst feelings is working so hard throughout the year, only to get blindsided by a huge tax bill you weren’t ready for.While traditional employees can rely on the companies they work for to withhold taxes and report their earnings to the IRS, the self-employed are expected to complete these actions on their own.To make matters worse, the self-employed often pay higher taxes than th...

If you are running a small business, you have an unwanted, not so silent partner that will dig into your pocket every year: the IRS.The IRS wants to know what you are doing, how much you are earning and most importantly how much you are paying in taxes. And the tax agency is becoming increasingly aggressive in this regard. While the audit rate for individual returns has been hovering at far less than 1%, the audit rate for small businesses can be as much as 10 times higher.The IRS is watching what you do, and if they think you are not paying your fair share they will certainly come calling. When that demand letter from the IRS arrives, knowing what to do next can make all the difference, and the more you educate yourself the easier it will be to deal with, and eliminate, the tax debt.No...

So many of us dread the April 15 tax filing deadline. The U.S. tax code contains more words than the Bible and hundreds of pages of new rules and regulations are often added. With so much complexity, it is no wonder so many of us put off filing our taxes until the last possible minute, but taking that approach introduces its own stresses and can potentially land you in hot water with the IRS.   What if you do not get it done on time? You can file for an extension, but you are still required to pay the taxes you owe plus penalties and interest.   How do you know you didn't make a mistake with your last minute tax filing? Something as simple as a mathematical error could increase the odds of an audit and put you in the crosshairs of the IRS.   We specialize in helping people who owe $10,...

  The old saying that nothing is certain in life except death and taxes has never been truer, or more frightening. In the current environment, fear of the IRS is creeping in, and nothing will get your heart racing quite as fast as opening the mailbox and finding a letter from the tax agency.   When the IRS comes calling, you might think that there is nothing you can do. You may worry that you will have to liquidate your assets, sell your car, or even put your home on the market to afford what the IRS says you owe. The good news is that you may not have to pay that total amount, and before you write that big check you should check out the alternatives first.   The IRS understands taxpayers fall behind on their taxes, and they have programs in place that can reduce the amount you owe or ...
