I was courting a builder last summer and as I showed him Valparaiso. He just could not get over how much Valparaiso reminded him of Naperville of yesteryear. Well, that got me to thinking about the similarities between the two communities on how much they are alike and how different. One of the most glaring is the Cost of Living I like to think I hit the major points  Real Estate Utilities Transportation Food/Groceries Healthcare Taxes  how did I do?

When clients come into my Hobart IN office after an IRS audit with a tax bill they don’t believe they owe, we usually will talk about 2 options for resolving the tax debt: Audit Reconsideration or doing a doubt as to liability offer.Audit reconsideration is a process where you can ask the IRS to review information that was not submitted during the original tax audit (along with documentation that was submitted with the audit). It is also used after the client submits a tax return after the IRS has created a Substitute for return (SFR)(when the client didn’t file a return), when it is believed the IRS made a computational or processing error and it can also be used when the IRS denies certain credits that the client feels they are entitled to.There are situations where the IRS will not c...

When a company gets behind on their payroll taxes and IRS penalties and interest get added in, it can become a nightmare for the company to try to catch up. Worse, as is often the case when clients come into my Hobart, IN office, if you are one of the people responsible for payroll tax preparation and payment process, there is the potential for the IRS to assess a personal liability against you and in helping collect this tax debt, and one of my priorities is to try to minimize the amount of personal exposure to my client.As many business owners and accountants know, there are two type of payroll taxes that a company has to remit to the IRS.          The trust fund taxes – these are taxes that are withheld from an employee’s pay check and held in trust until they are remitted to the IRS...

I represent clients for tax debt resolution in Northwest Indiana. One of the questions I get asked is when you owe a tax debt, when is the best time to start the tax resolution process? There are several schools of thought on this and I will address a few of them here, then give you my thoughts based on my experiences.One of the common schools of thought is when the client comes into my office is they have ignored the situation and the IRS has already levied bank accounts and their paycheck, creating a financial hardship for the client. Should the client decide to retain me, I will usually immediately reach out to the IRS and try to get a hold on collections to stop the next levy from happening and am usually told I have x number of days to propose a resolution to the client’s tax debt....

With the focus of my Hobart, IN practice being tax representation, tax liens are something I deal with relative frequency. I have heard the comment “I would sell my house, but there is a tax lien” more times than I can count. So, the real question is can you sell a house when there is an IRS tax lien?In Short, you absolutely can sell your house, even if there is an IRS tax lien on it. The IRS will be more than happy to allow the house to be sold. The only thing the IRS requires is that the seller who owes money to the government not walk away with money that the IRS should have received.For example, if the taxpayer owes the IRS $100,000. They own a house worth $400,000. I will explain what the IRS would get in each of the following circumstances:-          Taxpayer sells and owes the ba...

When the phone rings in my Hobart, IN office, and the caller on the other end of the phone has a significant outstanding IRS tax debt, I am often asked how much I think they would have to pay to “settle the outstanding tax debt.” The general answer I give is it depends on the potential client’s financial situation. The IRS gives specific requirements for determining what a person can pay, and, despite what you may have heard on TV, it’s not a matter of having a proprietary process or knowing the right people at the IRS that will drive a tax resolution alternative to acceptance, it’s a matter of understanding the IRS rules and processes which drives an offer to acceptance.To explain it a little further, the IRS looks at what it can collect from a client based on the Client's Reasonable C...

I represent taxpayers in Hobart Indiana, the Chicago area and the rest of the state before the IRS and State Departments of Revenue. When clients come into my office, I am often asked what options are available to them. For taxpayers to resolve back tax issues, they need to propose a plan to payback the IRS. So what options are available to a taxpayer to pay back tax debt?There are a number of options available to the taxpayer to resolve their tax debt and, in most cases, the options available require a look at the client’s financial situation.          Offer-in-Compromise – This is where the client proposed a tax settlement to the IRS to accept less than the amount owed. The IRS looks at something called Reasonable Collection Potential (RCP), which will be discussed in a future blog en...

When I first meet a client in my Hobart, IN office, in most cases, one of the things I require before I get to work resolving their tax debt is to review their tax transcripts. This step is often something the client questions, but the step is one of the more critical steps in the tax resolution process.So, why do I require a transcript review and what do I hope to gain from it?The tax transcript gives me a clear view of everything the IRS has on file for the tax payer, including what returns were filed, what the IRS has received in terms of W-2s, 1099s, and other reported items, and most importantly, what the total amount of tax debt the IRS shows as owed.  When I review the transcripts, I pay close attention for unfiled tax returns over the past 6 years, since they will need to be fil...

When clients come into my Hobart, Indiana office for help resolving their tax debts, one of the things we take a look at as we work out a strategy to deal with their tax debt is which debts fall outside the 10-year collection statute.When I walk through the entire process at client onboarding, I am often askedthe question: “what is the 10-year collection statute and why do we look at it?” The 10-year collection is the limit to the amount of time the IRS can try to collect most tax debts. Put simply, if the tax debt were assessed more than 10 years ago, the IRS cannot collect it. The reason I check this is to make sure when I am working out a solution to the client’s tax issue is to make sure the client isn’t being billed for old debts that should have been written off and to determine w...

You get home from work and check your mailbox. You skim through the mail to see what needs your attention. There it is… a letter from the IRS. Your heart starts pounding in your chest. You start to shake a little. Your mouth goes dry and you lose the ability to swallow. You're unsure what you should do. Clients that come into my office in Hobart, Indiana generally feel the same way when they receive one of these letters. So, when they come into my office, and I am able to explain what the letters mean and what options are available to prevent the IRS from taking a client’s bank account or paycheck (through an IRS Tax Levy), they tend to leave a little more at ease, knowing what their options are. They have an what they need to do, and have a general idea of the path forward.When a tax r...
