Back Taxes – IRS Tax Debt Help

Are you getting tired of looking over your shoulder as you wonder if the IRS is closing in on you?  The IRS has 10 years to collect (from date of assessment) any taxes you owe, so getting behind with your taxes is not a problem that will go away any time soon.  The smart move is to stop everything, focus on your IRS problem, and make a plan to deal with your back taxes.  There is no scenario in which the IRS decides to “let it go this time”.  Anybody who tells you otherwise should immediately be disqualified from giving tax advice.

The first step in a good tax relief plan is to gather the correct forms for all the tax years in question.  Do you have all the proper employer year-end tax forms?  How about the bank or brokerage firm statements?  If not, you’ve got to arrange to get copies. There is simply no way to avoid filing a tax return for each of the tax years you missed, and before you can file a tax return you must have the proper records before you.

If you are missing your income statements our team of tax professionals can order than them from the IRS.

Once we have gathered your tax information, IRS Tax Attorney will be ready to immediately begin filing back tax returns, you’ve got to assess your general situation with regard to your taxes.  Are your tax returns normally simple to file?  Are you behind because of simple negligence or because some event in your life took precedent?  If so, you may be able to spread all those papers out on the dining room table and solve your problem on your own. It is always better to have your tax returns prepared by a professional.

If you own a business, have recently been through a divorce, if you changed jobs, or if you have made or lost significant amounts of money through investments, things can get complicated beyond your ability to deal with them at the dining room table.  If this is your present situation, you really should consider working with one of our professionals here at Flat Fee Tax Service (1-866-747-7435).

Unfiled Tax Returns – The Ramifications.

Once your back tax returns (unfiled tax returns) are filed, you’ll have to deal with paying any tax you have due, plus all associated late fees and penalties.  Generally, these can be set up on a payment plan and sometimes you can even apply for a waiver of penalties if you have a reasonable excuse for not filing on time. You cannot settle with the iRS until you are compliant with your tax returns.

The most important thing to remember is this: you CAN resolve your situation with back taxes.  You just need a plan, and most likely you need to work with someone who can quickly move you through the process.  At Flat Fee Tax Service, we understand the situation you’re in with back taxes, and we have the experience to guide you through the process so that you can start living your life looking forward, not backward.

Offer in Compromise – Affordable IRS Settlement | Flat Fee Tax Service

An Offer in Compromise is an tax settlement with the IRS that allows a financially struggling taxpayer to settle an income tax debt for less than the full amount owed. An Offer in Compromise may be a legitimate option if the taxpayer cannot pay the full income tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. The IRS must consider a taxpayer’s unique set of facts and circumstances:

  • Ability to pay;
  • Income;
  • Expenses; and
  • Asset equity.

The IRS will generally approve an offer in compromise settlement when the amount offered represents the most that the IRS can expect to collect within a reasonable period of time. The IRS will try and discourage a taxpayer. Explore all other payment options before submitting an offer in compromise. The Offer in Compromise program is not for everyone. If you hire a tax professional to help you file an offer, be sure to check his or her qualifications.

BBB Accredited – A Plus Rating


Make sure you are eligible to settle with the IRS:

Before the IRS will consider a taxpayer’s settlement offer, the taxpayer must be current with all filing and payment requirements. You are not eligible if you are in an open bankruptcy proceeding. Call the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. for your free and confidential consultation. A consultation call to our team will be the quickest way for a taxpayer to find out their qualifications for an IRS settlement.

SubmitTING an Offer in Compromise:

A taxpayer can submit an Offer in Compromise (IRS settlement) on their own. It is not recommended. Presently, at the time of this writing, the IRS is accepting 40% of the settlement offers that are submitted. Most of the 40% used a tax professional.

The clients who use Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. have had a 95% success rate. 

If you are stubborn and want to do your own settlement, you will find step-by-step instructions and all the forms for submitting an offer in the Offer in Compromise Booklet, Form 656-B.  A taxpayer’s completed offer package must include:

  • Form 433-A (OIC) (individuals) or 433-B (OIC) (businesses) and all required documentation as specified on the forms;
  • Form 656(s) – individual and business tax debt (Corporation/ LLC/ Partnership) must be submitted on separate Form 656;
  • $186 application fee (non-refundable); and
  • Initial payment (non-refundable) for each Form 656.

Select payment option:

The taxpayer’s initial payment will vary based on the offer and the payment option chosen:

  • Lump Sum Cash: Submit an initial payment of 20 percent of the total offer amount with the application. Wait for written acceptance, then pay the remaining balance of the offer in five or fewer payments.
  • Periodic Payment: Submit an initial payment with the application. Continue to pay the remaining balance in monthly installments while the IRS considers the settlement offer. If accepted, continue to pay monthly until it is paid in full.

Should a financially distressed taxpayer meet the Low-Income Certification guidelines, the taxpayer does not have to send the application fee or the initial payment and the taxpayer will not need to make monthly installments during the evaluation of the offer. Check the application package for details.

You Need to Understand the Entire Process:

While an IRS settlement offer is being evaluated:

  • The taxpayer’s non-refundable payments and fees will be applied to the income tax liability (payments can be designated to a specific tax year and tax debt);
  • A Notice of Federal Tax Lien may be filed;
  • Other collection activities  (levies) are suspended;
  • The legal assessment and collection period is extended;
  • Make all required payments associated with the settlement offer;
  • The taxpayer is not required to make payments on an existing installment agreement; and
  • The settlement offer is automatically accepted if the IRS does not make a determination within two years of the IRS receipt date.


If a taxpayer decides to do their own Offer in Compromise, the settlement offer had better be done correctly the VERY 1st TIME. The reason is this: the IRS suspends the Statute of Limitations during the Offer in Compromise submission process. That means if the settlement offer is rejected for any reason, the IRS has extended the time to enforce collection.

IRS Levy | Social Security | Flat Fee Tax Service

The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Service have helped countless taxpayers who have had their Social Security and Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits seized by the IRS. The IRS, through the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP), can seize as little as 15% of your benefit check.
A taxpayer may have retired and now draws on their Social Security or may be unable to work due to disability and now receives Social Security Disability (SSDI). The IRS may have previously placed a financially struggling taxpayer in currently not collectible status (CNC) because they did not have enough income to pay an overdue income tax debt. Now that a taxpayer is drawing money from Social Security, do not be surprised to receive a notice from the IRS that the Internal Revenue Service is going to be taking part of the taxpayer’s check each month.

A taxpayer may have thought they were in Currently not Collectible status only to find out that their check is 15% short of the full benefit. Can the IRS really seize social security? Yes, the IRS can and will take at the minimum 15% unless steps are taken to stop, remove and release the IRS levy.


What is Currently not Collectible?
Currently not Collectible status (CNC) simply means that the IRS won’t try to collect taxes at the current time. Should a taxpayer be placed in Currently not Collectible status (CNC), a Federal Tax Lien will be filed. If your credit is important to you, this will be an issue. The income tax debt owed will continue to accrue penalties and interest. The IRS can rescind the taxpayer’s Currently not Collectible anytime that they choose without warning. To be placed in Currently not Collectible status, a taxpayer will have to show the IRS there is not enough income to pay the IRS and meet the taxpayer’s basic necessities. Most often, Currently not Collectible (CNC) will necessitate filling out a Form 433-F (Financial Asset Form). This IRS form requires a taxpayer to list all of their income, assets, and expenses. Use the IRS National Standards for personal/ food expenses and medical expenses without having to prove your actual expenses. A taxpayer will be limited to claiming the national standards on all expenses unless it is proven that a taxpayer has a special circumstance that makes their expenses higher. A taxpayer can find the National Standards on the website.
How does Currently not Collectible status effect how much income tax is owed?
The interest and penalties on your account continue to increase.
Can the IRS change a taxpayer’s status?
Yes, the IRS can change the taxpayer’s status at any time. The IRS will take a look at your status every twelve (12) to twenty-four (24) months or so. The IRS will also look at any change in income.
Can the IRS really take my social security or Social Security Disability (SSDI)?
The IRS can and will take a taxpayer’s social security retirement benefit or social security disability benefits once the IRS computer discovers that a taxpayer is receiving a government check. As a general rule, the IRS will limit what they take to 15% per the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP). The IRS should not take Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. These benefits are considered public benefits and are usually assumed to be only enough to provide for basic necessities. Please note, the IRS can take more than 15% should a Revenue Officer issue a Manuel Levy.
Although the IRS is supposed to prevent certain very low-income social security retirement and social security disability recipients from being placed in the federal payment levy program, we all know that is a rule that is often broken. This screening program is not full proof so taxpayers still may have to submit a 433-F to be put into currently not collectible status.
What if a taxpayer does not believe they owe the IRS the past due income taxes?
If a taxpayer has never received a notice of levy before, a request for a Collection Due Process hearing (CDP) is an option. A Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing will allow a financially struggling taxpayer to present evidence that the IRS should not levy on Social Security benefits. A taxpayer could also challenge the income tax debt if the taxpayer has not had a chance to challenge it before. A taxpayer might not have been able to challenge the income tax debt if the IRS did not issue the right notice or mailed the notice to the wrong place.
If a taxpayer received the notice but decided not to respond, the taxpayer cannot challenge the income tax debt in a CDP hearing. A taxpayer might be able to ask for an audit reconsideration. In an audit reconsideration, the taxpayer will tell the IRS why their decision was wrong and provide them with any evidence that will help the IRS change their mind.
If the taxpayer is Currently not Collectible should they do an Offer in Compromise?
Now we are talking about an actual permanent solution to the financially struggling taxpayer’s income tax problem. If the IRS has already declared the taxpayer to be unable to pay the overdue income tax debt, why not take the extra step and retire the income tax debt altogether through an IRS settlement? If a taxpayer has no assets and is relying on Social Security benefits to live on, it would behoove the taxpayer to get rid of the tax debt. Many of the same IRS rules that govern being Currently not Collectible work for the Offer in Compromise program.
During the Offer in Compromise process, the IRS must leave the taxpayer alone. That means no levies. No enforcement actions. If you have no assets and only have your Social Security, your IRS settlement should be very, very small. At the end of the Offer in Compromise process, the taxpayer will have no IRS income tax liens.
When we receive a call from a taxpayer who is or was declared to be Currently not Collectible, we explain the settlement program this way: If you were running a marathon, would you stop running when you were 200 yards from the finish line? Of course not. Finish the race. Settle with the IRS for less.

Currently not Collectible | IRS Hardship | Flat Fee Tax Service

IRS Hardship – Currently Not Collectible

IRS Hardship is for financially struggling taxpayers who are unable to pay their back income tax debt.  The real term used by the IRS is Currently Not Collectible (CNC) Status.

IRS Hardship – What Does it Mean for You?

What are the options for a taxpayer who owes the IRS for back Income taxes but is unable to pay? What are your options if the taxpayer is unable to pay the past due to income tax because you have just enough money to support yourself and your family?  Once a taxpayer is declared by the IRS to be Currently not Collectible (IRS Hardship), the IRS will not take/seize your property. The IRS will not take your paycheck (IRS wage garnishment) or wipe out your bank account (IRS Bank Levy) while the taxpayer is in IRS Hardship (Currently not Collectible).  IRS Hardship will not remove the back income taxes that owed by a taxpayer. The financially struggling taxpayer will still owe back income taxes.  Every year the IRS will mail out a reminder letter regarding the income taxes owed.


IRS Penalties and Interest

IRS Hardship does not stop IRS penalties and interest to accrue.  The IRS will continue to charge penalties and interest and the IRS will file a Federal Tax Lien.

IRS Hardship Status – How Long Will it Last?

IRS Hardship (Currently not Collectible) status could last up to 10 years.  Generally, the IRS has 10 years to collect overdue income taxes.  After 10 years, the IRS is supposed to remove the back taxes.  For example, if a taxpayer filed their 2009 tax return on time, back taxes for 2009 will be owed.  The IRS can collect the back taxes until 2020.  If the 2009 taxes are in IRS Hardship status, the IRS will leave the taxpayer alone. A taxpayer may be able to stay in IRS Hardship status for the next 10 years.  After 2020, the IRS will remove 2009 taxes.

The IRS will review a taxpayer’s income situation approximately once every two years.  If the taxpayer’s income has increased, the IRS may take the taxpayer out of IRS Hardship (Currently not Collectible) status.  The IRS believes the delinquent taxpayer is better able to support themselves and pay the back income tax debt.

If A Taxpayer Has New IRS Back Income Taxes

What if a taxpayer expects to owe new taxes for this year?  The back income taxes that are owed are in IRS Hardship status.  Will the new taxes be automatically included in the IRS Hardship status?  The answer is no.  Every tax year is treated separately.  For example, you could owe back taxes for 2005 – 2008, and new taxes for 2010.  2005 – 2008 are in IRS Hardship status but 2010 is not.  The IRS can pursue the taxpayer for the new 2010 taxes but not 2005 – 2008 back taxes.

If you are in this situation, the tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Service recommend that you pursue an IRS settlement (Offer in Compromise).  This should not affect your IRS Hardship status. If the IRS has declared that you are unable to pay them for the income taxes that you owe, then it’s a very important step toward having your entire income tax debt settled.

If the struggling taxpayer is unable to pay off the new taxes, the taxpayer can request to put the new tax debt in IRS Hardship status. The taxpayer can continue to be Currently not Collectible but it would be so much better to have all of the income tax debt wiped out through the Offer in Compromise program.

IRS Hardship Tax Forms

The IRS will request financial information to show that the taxpayer is an IRS Hardship.

IRS Form 433-A or IRS Form 433-F – Used for individuals or self-employed requesting IRS Hardship Status.

IRS Form 433-B – Used for C Corporations, S Corporations, and Partnerships requesting IRS Hardship Status.

Difference Between IRS Hardship and IRS Settlement

An IRS settlement submitted through the Offer in Compromise program is a more complete solution compared to IRS Hardship. An IRS Settlement is an agreement between the IRS and the delinquent taxpayer to pay less than what is owed.  The IRS Settlement process usually takes approximately 10 months but can take as little as 6 months and as much as 24 months.  After the IRS settlement agreement is finalized, the delinquent taxpayer will be done. The taxpayer will no longer owe back income taxes.

There is a huge difference between being in IRS Hardship and proceeding with an Offer in Compromise settlement. During the Offer in Compromise process, the IRS must leave taxpayer alone. The IRS may or may not leave the taxpayer alone while in IRS Hardship status.  Also, while in IRS Hardship, the delinquent taxpayer could be dealing with their past due to income taxes for the next 10 years.  Most people are uncomfortable with this.  A taxpayer should be uncomfortable with this. A taxpayer may not like the thought of owing back taxes even though the IRS is not coming after the money.

To Know More About the IRS Settlement Process Read This: IRS Settlement

IRS Hardship may be a better option if a taxpayer is not qualified for an IRS Settlement. But, know this, if the IRS has already declared that a taxpayer is unable to pay the overdue income taxes, it is only a “hop, skip and jump” to wiping out the income tax debt altogether.

The IRS income tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service will have a taxpayer placed into IRS Hardship / Currently not Collectible status if the taxpayer is unable to pay the back income tax debt and is not qualified for an Offer in Compromise settlement. The financially struggling taxpayer will still owe the back taxes but the IRS will not pursue the taxpayer. Our clients are able to take a deep breath and go about their normal everyday life. A taxpayer may stay in IRS Hardship status for the next 10 years. After 10 years, the IRS will remove the back taxes.

IRS Levy | IRS Wage Garnishment | Atlanta Georgia | Flat Fee Tax Service

Nearly everyone who calls us at Flat Fee Tax Service for their free and confidential consultation has an IRS wage garnishment. An IRS wage garnishment/wage levy is when the IRS orders your employer to withhold a percentage of your wages or earnings and send it to the IRS in order to pay your past due to income tax debt. However, it is not just limited to employer-employee relationships.

If you are self- employed and owe back taxes,  the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can direct your clients, suppliers and anyone that owes you money, etc.  “to send it” to the IRS to satisfy a back income tax debt.

For example, if you are a real estate salesperson or insurance agent and you are owed a commission from the sale of a property or the renewal of your clients policies, the IRS can legally require that your commission and future commissions be sent to the IRS until such time that your past due income tax debt problem is satisfied.

How an IRS Wage Garnishment Is Enforced:

In order for the IRS to garnish your wages or earnings, the IRS issues a formal notice (IRS Form 668-W) to your employer directing them to withhold a percentage of your wages. At the same time, the IRS will notify you by mail of the wage garnishment. Typically, you will receive two letters. First, you will receive a “Notice of Intent to Levy Wages.”  If you ignore the first letter, you will then receive a “Final Notice of Intent to Levy Wages.”

If you do not take positive steps quickly to remedy your past due tax problems, your employer will be legally obligated to garnish your paycheck until such time that either your past due income tax debt is paid off or you resolve the income tax debt problem.

Unlike an IRS bank levy (1-time deal), an IRS wage garnishment is continuous. In other words, the IRS wage garnishment will not be lifted by the taxing authority until such time that the overdue income tax debt is satisfied or resolved.


How aN IRS Tax Attorney Can Help You:

An IRS wage garnishment is the result of having an overdue income tax problems. Our purpose at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. is to solve your IRS tax problem, once and for all. Of course, our team of experienced IRS tax relief professionals will take care of the IRS wage garnishment in one (1) day. However, the big picture solution will involve remedying your entire income tax problem.

For example, if you have unfiled tax returns, we will make sure to get your back tax returns filed right away so that you are compliant with the tax laws. Lastly, our IRS Tax Attorneys will protect your interests while we, either, reach a reasonable payment plan with IRS or settle your entire income tax debt through an Offer in Compromise.

If you receive a letter from the IRS or your employer regarding a wage garnishment, it is important that you contact an experienced income tax relief firm as soon as possible. You have a very short time frame to take action to stop aggressive IRS collection/enforcement action. Our team of experienced IRS tax relief experts will protect and guide you through the process of stopping or lifting your wage garnishment and solving your tax problems.

If you have questions about your stopping your IRS wage garnishment or tax debt problems, give us a call at 1-866-747-7435.

Tax Debt | Offer in Compromise | Flat Fee Tax Service

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 tax 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.


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 and compare it to ours (BBB Record). 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.



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.

IRS Levies | Tax Levy Stopped Released and Avoided | Flat Fee Tax Service

Most of our clients at Flat Fee Tax Service 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 may be 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 tax levies (bank and wages). The good news is that if you’re like the 20,000,000 other taxpayers with an tax problem and you’re facing this unpleasant situation, you can avoid IRS collection actions.

How the IRS Issue a Tax Levy:

To satisfy unpaid taxes, the IRS will order a tax 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



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 Can be 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.


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.

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.

95% of Flat Fee Tax Service 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.

Release IRS Levy | Tax Problems | Flat Fee Tax Service

An interesting look at the importance of not ignoring the IRS comes from the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, who deal with our clients IRS tax problems every day and provide a unique perspective.

It is amazing three little letters, IRS can cause a taxpayer to panic and experience anxiety. The horror stories brought about by the IRS are always a hot topic around tax time, each year. There’s a simple message at the basis of almost every IRS story — Your IRS Problem Can Be Resolved.

There is no shortage of commercials and online advertising stating this very fact and offering to help financially struggling taxpayers who are in trouble. While most struggling taxpayers tune these friendly reminders out due to procrastination, there is a worthwhile reason for taking notice and avoiding direct conflicts with the IRS.



While it’s always better to “stay within the lines” and not be contacted by the IRS at all, tax resolution firms specializing in tax debt relief, such as the tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., know the importance of representation to avoid error, abuse, and intimidation. To simply avoid the IRS is never the right option and is sure to only make matters worse.




When the IRS sends you a collection letter, the best solution is to reach out to an experienced tax relief firm like Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. who will maintain contact with the IRS and evaluate your best options and resolutions. Though many options exist to help quickly and efficiently resolve these problems, there’s a correct method when faced with this harsh reality. They all begin with not avoiding the IRS.

IRS Wage Levies (wage garnishment): This form of enforcement action can be quite embarrassing, as the employer also becomes involved. The IRS will take your money each week/month out of the paycheck to pay towards the back tax debt. This results in being without the accustomed income each month, and the feeling of complete vulnerability at the work place. An IRS wage levy is continuous unless stopped and released.



IRS Liens & Levies: An IRS Lien and/or Levy will quickly make your life miserable in multiple ways. An IRS tax lien is a claim used as security for the tax debt, while a levy will actually take your paycheck, bank account or property to satisfy your back tax debt. Both of these actions should be avoided at all costs, as the short-term and long-term results that come with these public records (tax liens only) only become worse with time and will prove to be detrimental to your business and/or personal life.

IRS Penalties: IRS Penalties will include just about every situation imaginable. Most commonly, these penalties are associated with a failure to file, failure to pay, or, an accuracy related penalty. Beyond these somewhat common penalties, more severe are the Civil Penalties that focus on fraudulent behaviors and possible Criminal Prosecution, which are typically reserved for those attempting tax evasion or falsifying statements. In one tax year, the IRS issued penalties totaling $18 billion, making this big business.


IRS Seizures: We Understand that no one wants to have their assets (paycheck, bank account, auto) seized and sold after not acknowledging the IRS, preventing the government from taking this action is vital. It’s a harsh reality, but IR Revenue Officers have the authority to seize assets and Property Appraisal and Liquidation Specialists (PALS) have the authority to sell these assets. With the legalities involved in these seizures by all involved, it’s often a last-resort when the IRS is ignored for long periods of time.




A natural reaction for most people is to become intimidated by the IRS, but one of the advantages when working with professionals such as our IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee tax Service, Inc. is that we are not intimidated and we will take the time to explore all your options. Our IRS Tax Attorneys know the best way to approach these delicate subjects and become the direct point of contact with the IRS – providing a secure level of protection between you and the IRS.


While staying on the straight with the IRS is always the suggested direction, situations in life happen that will force the IRS to come knocking. In these trying situations, attempting to ignore or hide from the IRS never ends well, as penalties and interest only increase with time. In most cases however, it’s not wise to simply give in without looking at all the options, but hiding is never advised.
