The IRS can and will garnish (take) your wages to satisfy your past due income tax debt. If you have ignored IRS collection letters or failed to pay your back income taxes despite having received warning letters from the IRS, the IRS can and will send an enforcement letter to your employer ordering your employer to pay most of your wages directly to the IRS. It is important to keep in mind that the IRS doesn’t really want to garnish your wages, they want to collect the taxes and penalties you owe and the garnishment is a powerful tool to help them do so. Obviously, for most Austin, Texas taxpayers, it would be financially devastating to lose most of their paycheck. The IRS will leave you with barely enough money to feed yourself. You can forget about paying your auto note or credit cards.
If you are a financially struggling and distressed taxpayer in the Austin, TX area that has received IRS wage garnishment notices, contact the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., as we can execute the prompt and proper negotiation methods to get the IRS off your back.
STOP AND AVOID AN IRS WAGE GARNISHMENT IN 1 DAY
The IRS Can and Will Issue a Wage Garnishment:
Before garnishing your wages, the IRS must send you a notice and demand for payment, providing you time to respond in accordance with the income tax laws. If you fail to respond as instructed, the IRS will send you a final notice of intent to garnish your wages and you will have only 30 days potentially to stop it before the wage garnishment is imposed.
THE IRS CAN SEND NOTICES TO ANY ADDRESS THEY HAVE ON FILE FOR YOU. THAT ADDRESS COULD BE 10 YEARS OLD. YOU MAY NEVER HAVE ACTUALLY RECEIVED THE NOTICES. IT DOESN’T MATTER. THE IRS IS ONLY OBLIGATED TO HAVE MAILED THE NOTICES.

Yes! Here we go again. It’s that time of year again for financially struggling and distressed taxpayers who haven’t made arrangements with the IRS to pay their income tax debt. Although the IRS sends out notices all year round, the IRS ramps it up every summer, the IRS sends a series of notices to try to collect unpaid taxes. The IRS then starts collection activity against delinquent taxpayers who haven’t paid or made arrangements to pay. These activities include the use of federal tax liens and levies to collect unpaid taxes. This type of enforcement/collection activity will usually increase in September, October, and November.
During the government shutdown, the IRS had temporarily stopped issuing federal liens as well as bank and wage levies, but IRS computer systems (automated collection system) were still sending automatically generated notices warning taxpayers, like you, about potential future collection action. With the end of the government shutdown, the IRS collection process is in full enforcement mode.
You can avoid these IRS enforcement/collection actions by arranging to pay your unpaid balances or using collection alternatives.
THE VERY BEST WAY YOU CAN AVOID AN IRS TAX LIEN OR LEVY IS:
To satisfy unpaid income taxes, the IRS can issue a levy to seize a taxpayer’s income and assets. The IRS enforcement process follows several steps. First, the IRS is required by law to provide the taxpayer with:
Notice and demand for payment;
Notice of intent to levy;
Notice of a right to a Collection Due Process hearing.
The IRS will accomplish these requirements by sending five letters, starting about six weeks after the taxpayer files a return. The five letters are often referred to as the automated collection “notice stream” (notice numbers CP14, CP501, CP503, CP504, and L1058/LT11). If you, the struggling taxpayer, receives the last notice and if you do not pay the balance or make other arrangements to pay, the IRS can levy your income and assets, including levying/garnishing your wages and seizing your bank account(s). In the fiscal year 2012, the IRS issued almost three million levies (bank and wages).
How Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. helps our clients avoid an IRS levy:
If you owe the past due to income tax debt, one way to avoid an IRS levy is to reach a payment agreement with the IRS to pay the balance. This means our tax professionals will need to analyze your financial situation and ability to pay the IRS.
One common solution is an extension of time to pay the balance in full. Extensions can give the client up to 120 days to pay the balance and avoid a levy.
If you can’t pay with an extension, an installment agreement allows the client to make monthly payments.
If the client is unable to pay anything, the proper strategy is to request to have the client placed in currently not collectible status, which classifies the client as temporarily unable to pay. Requests for both of these agreements suspend levy actions.
Once an installment agreement is accepted, the IRS will not issue a levy unless the client defaults on the agreement. If the IRS places a client in currently not collectible status, the client’s assets will not be levied, however, the IRS can remove the currently not collectible status in the future if it determines that the client can pay the tax balance.
If you are eligible and qualified to settle with the IRS, Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will prepare and shepherd your Offer in Compromise settlement through the IRS process. 90% of our clients who have submitted an Offer in Compromise to the IRS has received a successful IRS settlement.
How the IRS issues their Federal liens:
When a taxpayer owes federal taxes that he or she has neglected or has refused to pay, a federal tax lien arises for the amount owed. This gives the IRS legal claim to your property. A Notice of Federal Tax Lien may be filed at a local courthouse and is a public record. A recorded federal tax lien establishes the government’s right of priority to the taxpayer’s assets as against third parties (to protect its interests).
The IRS could formally file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien when the IRS meets its legal requirement to send the taxpayer a notice and demand for payment and doesn’t receive payment within 10 days. In practice, the IRS waits to record most tax liens until after it has sent all five notices in the notice stream and has not received a payment.
You will want to avoid a Notice of Federal Tax Lien because it can reduce their credit score by an average of 100 points, according to the IRS Tax Advocate. Liens can also affect a taxpayer’s ability to attract new business clients, secure and maintain credit, and obtain employment. Because a Notice of Federal Tax Lien is public record, taxpayers want to avoid the potential harm to their reputation, as well.
How to help a client avoid a Federal income tax lien:
Avoiding a tax lien filing is more complicated than avoiding a levy. The IRS can file a tax lien even if you have an agreement to pay the back taxes. IRS rules for business dictate that an IRS tax lien won’t be filed if a taxpayer owes less than $10,000. However, the IRS does reserve the right to file a lien to protect its interests. For example, the IRS might file a lien in the case of a pending bankruptcy or if it thinks the taxpayer is dissipating assets to avoid paying an income tax debt.
If you owe more than $10,000, they can still avoid a federal tax lien filing. If the client can’t pay the tax immediately, the most effective ways to avoid a federal tax lien filing are to request an extension of time to pay for up to 120 days or enter into a streamlined installment agreement to pay the full balance.
Streamlined installment agreements require that you pay the full balance within six years or before the collection statute of limitation expires, whichever is sooner. If the unpaid balance is less than $50,000, or if the balance can be paid down to less than $50,000 before the streamlined installment agreement is established, a tax lien filing can be avoided. For an individual taxpayer client, if the unpaid balance is between $25,000 and $50,000, the IRS will not file a federal income tax lien if you allow the IRS to make installment agreement payments directly from your bank account.
When financially distressed clients can’t pay their back income taxes, tax professionals, the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., with a thorough understanding of IRS rules for liens and levies can help you avoid enforced collection action. The key is to be proactive (don’t wait for a wage levy to strike you) in securing an agreement with the IRS that avoids liens and levies.
The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has been accepting more partial settlement payment offers. The IRS settlement process can be long and involved, generally requiring taxpayers to show they’re unable to pay the full amount.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), through their Fresh Start Initiative, has made it easier for delinquent taxpayers, who are struggling financially, to cut the amount they owe on back taxes.
The IRS has a settlement program called an “offer in compromise,” which develops partial payment plans for taxpayers who can demonstrate that they face problems involving the ability to pay.
The burden of proof rests with the taxpayer. It is the struggling taxpayer who needs to make a legitimate partial payment offer. Although the IRS is free to reject a settlement offer, the IRS has a financial formula that guides their decisions. While it is easier than it once was to have an offer accepted, filling out the forms is no picnic.
The average acceptance rate for taxpayers’ settlement offers, which was under 25 percent as recently as 2010, rose to 42 percent in 2013, according to the IRS. If you are qualified and eligible for an IRS settlement, then you need to take advantage of the Offer in Compromise program while you can.
FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. HAS A 90% SUCCESS RATE
Choosing an IRS tax resolution firm can feel like a daunting task. Finding a reputable IRS tax relief team that will get you through the complicated IRS Offer in Compromise program and get you the Fresh Start that you need and deserve may feel confusing to you. It need not be. Do your research. Google the company that you are looking at. Check their Better Business Bureau record and reviews. Are their fees fair and reasonable? Will the IRS tax help team that you are considering let you extend the fee payments over 10 to 12 months?
Taxpayers, who are struggling financially, who demonstrate that their income tax bills cannot be collected must show the IRS that they are, to put it gently, financially challenged. To receive a successful IRS settlement agreement, the taxpayer must acknowledge a tax liability and demonstrate an inability to pay all of it. You are telling and showing the IRS, “Look, you can’t get blood from a turnip.”
Your Offer in Compromise cannot be guaranteed. But, if you cannot pay your tax debt and do not have the funds to pay your income tax liability, then it becomes a matter of proving to the IRS that you deserve a Fresh Start. When the IRS does agree to an Offer in Compromise, your settlement may amount to “the deal of a lifetime.”
Our latest IRS success story had our client, from Murrieta, California, settling her $24,000 income tax debt for a grand total of $400 which was paid in 4 $100 monthly installments.
The easing of the IRS criteria for settlement offers has come in the last few years. In 2012, the IRS changed the way it calculated how much income has to go to repayment. Last year, the formula for figuring the worth of assets, which must also go toward a payment of back taxes. was liberalized.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CURRENT OFFER IN COMPROMISE RULES BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
There has never been a better time to make an offer of settlement to the IRS. Our IRS tax relief team has seen reasonable offers, particularly ones in which the government was forgiving less than $50,000, being accepted pretty consistently.
Most of our clients at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. never intended for their income tax debt problem to get this far. When they file their tax returns in April, they always think, “I’ll pay this off in a month or two.” Like many Americans who are financially struggling, their good intentions fell by the wayside as other urgent financial obligations arose and his unpaid balance at the IRS remained unpaid longer than they intended it to. The IRS has sent out their notices, but most taxpayers either still believe they had time (the notice said so!) or that the IRS may miraculously forget the tax debt. The IRS has a progression of enforcement/collection notices. IRS notices are sent in an order. Those IRS notices will get more serious, and you will finally realize the IRS is very serious about the liens and levies being threatened in the notices. Most taxpayers in this very serious situation will not know what to do.
Every year, millions of Americans experience federal tax liens and levies (bank and wages). The good news is that if you’re like the 20,000,000 other taxpayers with an IRS problem and you’re facing this unpleasant situation, you can avoid IRS collection actions.
How the IRS Issues Levies:
To satisfy unpaid taxes, the IRS will issue a levy to take a taxpayer’s income and assets. Income and assets can be: wages, paychecks, stocks, bonds, checking accounts, savings accounts, Social Security and Veteran’s pensions. The process follows several steps. First, the IRS is required by law to provide the taxpayer with:
Notice and demand for payment
Notice of intent to levy
Notice of a right to a Collection Due Process
THESE NOTICES CAN BE SENT TO ANY ADDRESS THAT THE IRS HAS ON FILE FOR YOU.
YOU MAY NEVER HAVE RECEIVED ANY NOTICE AT ALL.
For most taxpayers, the IRS accomplishes these requirements by sending five letters, starting about six weeks after the taxpayer files a return. The five letters are often referred to as the automated collection “notice stream” (notice numbers CP14, CP501, CP503, CP504, and L1058/LT11). If the delinquent taxpayer receives the last notice and doesn’t pay the balance or make other arrangements to pay the balance, the IRS can levy the taxpayer’s income and assets, including garnishing wages and/or self-employment income and seizing funds in bank accounts. In 2012 alone, the IRS issued almost 3 million levies to taxpayers.
How to Have an IRS Levy Stopped, Released and Avoided:
If you know you owe the IRS for an income tax balance (meaning the IRS didn’t make a mistake, you filed the return correctly, and the balance can’t be reduced by filing an amendment), there is one way to avoid a levy, and it’s the same way to remove the levy: Get into an agreement with the IRS to pay the balance.
This means you’ll need to analyze your financial situation and ability to pay the IRS. In some cases, you may need to get help from a tax professional.
One simple, common solution is an extension of time to pay the balance in full. Extensions allow you up to 120 days to pay the balance and avoid a levy.
BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF INTO AN EXTENSION, CONSULT WITH AN IRS TAX PROFESSIONAL.
If you can’t pay for an extension, you can request an installment agreement to make monthly payments, or you can request currently not collectible status, which officially classifies you as temporarily unable to pay. Requests for both of these agreements will suspend levy actions. Once the installment agreement is accepted, the IRS will not issue a levy unless you default on the agreement. If the IRS places you in currently not collectible status, your assets won’t be levied; however, be aware that the IRS can remove the currently not collectible status in the future if the IRS determines that you can pay the tax balance.
BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF INTO AN INSTALLMENT AGREEMENT
CONSULT AN IRS TAX PROFESSIONAL
The IRS offer in compromise (OIC) is a collection alternative that settles a taxpayer’s tax debt for less than the amount owed, and it also suspends levy actions. IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC) acceptance not as rare as in previous years. Currently, the IRS has been accepting 46% of the settlement offers submitted.
90% of Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc.’s Clients Have Had A Successful
Offer in Compromise.
Financially struggling taxpayers need to contact a reputable IRS Tax Professional to see if they are qualified and eligible to settle with the IRS for less. Have your IRS settlement prepared by an experienced IRS Tax Professional because if the IRS rejects your settlement offer, you’ll need to set up an alternative agreement to avoid a levy.
It’s important to note that if the IRS determines that you are purposely delaying the collection process, the IRS can use liens and/or levies even while it considers your request for a collection alternative. This often happens when a taxpayer has multiple tax years with an unpaid balance or has requested numerous collection agreements that the IRS has denied.
