IRS Installment Agreement – IRS Payment Plan Revoked – Flat Fee Income Tax Relief Help

The IRS will allow a taxpayer to pay off an income tax debt through an installment agreement. Because interest and penalties will apply. The IRS encourages taxpayers to pay taxes immediately because the IRS is a collection agency. To “encourage” a taxpayer to pay off their past due to income tax debt, interest and penalties will be added and can equal 8% to 25% per year. If you do nothing, your overdue income tax debt could double in 4 years.

For most financially struggling taxpayers the thought of paying the entire income tax debt all at once is not possible. An installment agreement is an alternative allowed by the IRS. The IRS has four different types of installment agreements: guaranteed, streamlined, partial payment, and non-streamlined.

Guaranteed IRS Installment Agreement

To qualify for a guaranteed installment agreement with the IRS, the taxpayer must meet the following conditions:

  • Owe less than $10,000, (not including interest and penalties);
  • In the previous five years, the taxpayer has filed tax returns, paid taxes owed, and has not entered into an installment agreement;
  • The taxpayer is unable to pay the tax liability when due;
  • The tax liability will be paid off within three years; and
  • The taxpayer must pay at least the minimum monthly payment (tax liability, interest, and penalties divided by 30)

Under this payment plan, the IRS will not file a federal tax lien against the taxpayer.

The IRS Streamlined Installment Agreement

In most cases, a taxpayer that qualifies for a guaranteed agreement will also qualify for the streamlined installment agreement. A streamlined installment agreement has the following requirements:

  • The tax liability, interest, and penalties do not exceed $25,000;
  • The balance can be paid off within 60 months; and
  • The proposed payment is equal to or greater than the “minimum acceptable payment” (the minimum acceptable payment is the greater of $25 or the minimum payment amount reached by dividing the tax liability, interest, and penalties by 50)

The taxpayer must pay a fee of $105 to set up the installment agreement or $52 for a direct debit installment agreement. To restructure or reinstate a previous installment agreement, the IRS charges a $45 fee. Like a guaranteed installment agreement, the IRS does not file a federal tax lien.

IRS Partial Payment Installment Agreement

A partial payment agreement allows the IRS to enter into agreements with taxpayers for the partial payment of a tax liability. To qualify for this arrangement, the taxpayer must complete a financial statement using Form 433-F to report income and living expenses. The IRS will review and verify the information. If the taxpayer has assets that can be sold to pay some of the tax debt, the IRS will require the taxpayer to provide additional information.

If approved, the taxpayer will be required to participate in a financial review every two years. This review may result in the increase in installment payments or the termination of the agreement.

IRS Non-Streamlined Installment Agreement

If a financially struggling taxpayer owes $25,000 or more and can make monthly payments to the IRS, a non-streamlined agreement can be an option. The IRS will not automatically approve this agreement; instead, the taxpayer must negotiate with the IRS by providing detailed financials. The taxpayer must file Form 433-F, Collection Information Statement. This form collects information about income, debts, living expenses, assets, accounts, and allows the taxpayer to propose an installment payment amount.

It will usually take a few months for the IRS to review a proposed payment plan. The IRS may refuse a proposed agreement if it considers some of the taxpayer’s living expenses unnecessary, if the untruthful information was provided, or if the taxpayer failed to complete a prior installment arrangement.

If a taxpayer is unable to pay a tax liability through a non-streamlined agreement, consider filing an Offer in Compromise.

Ways the IRS Will Accept Payments

Taxpayers can make installment payments in the following ways:

  • Payroll Deduction
  • Direct debit
  • Check or money order
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
  • Credit card
  • Online Payment Agreement (OPA)

When Will the IRS Revoke an Installment Agreement

The IRS can revoke an installment arrangement under the following circumstances:

  • The financially struggling taxpayer misses a payment;
  • The financially struggling taxpayer does not file a tax return or pay taxes after the agreement is entered into ;
  • The financially struggling taxpayer provided inaccurate information on Form 433-F; or
  • The financially distressed taxpayer is paying under a partial payment installment agreement and a review indicates a change in their financial position.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

IRS income tax problems are more common than you think. One (1) in six (6), or approximately 26 million of 153 million individual taxpayers across the United States (and beyond our borders) either disagree over what the income tax owed to the IRS or conversely, agree with the past due income tax debt. At this time, most taxpayers cannot pay their income tax debt in full. Of the 26 million individual taxpayers with an IRS problem, about half owe the IRS $20,000 or more. Almost ALL of these taxpayers are in the lower 99%. Many millions do not have enough money to pay the entire amount due in one payment or make payments. Until the IRS the entire income tax debt is paid in full or settled, the interest and penalties will increase and the IRS enforcement becomes ever more intrusive on household finances.

The IRS Is An Unforgiving Creditor To Naive Taxpayers.

The IRS is the most powerful collection agency on the planet Earth. The IRS has the power to seize bank accounts, garnish your wages, your Social Security, SSDI, Veteran’s Pension and force the immediate sale of homes and other property. The IRS collects income tax debt by a variety of extremely intrusive means, and the taxpayer is always playing defense. To collect your money, the IRS will completely disrupt the economic life of a taxpayer, without regard to future consequence for the taxpayer. Once you become a client of Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., our income tax resolution team, will stop IRS enforcement actions and start the process to settle your income tax problem.

The IRS Collection and Enforcement Actions Can Be Stopped.

The IRS is not going willingly help a financially struggling taxpayer but there are procedures a taxpayer can use to prevent the seizure of assets such as a wage levy (garnishment). If a taxpayer is eligible to negotiate the amount they owe to a steeply discounted rate through the Offer in Compromise program or to work out a payment plan that the taxpayer can afford. The settlement procedures are arcane, they are not publicized by the IRS and the IRS will not assist a taxpayer in settling their income tax debt. The purpose of the IRS is to collect money. The purpose of the IRS is not to assist a taxpayer on how they can rid themselves of an income tax debt. Taxpayers whose economic life and well being are at stake will receive a better result by engaging an experienced tax resolution professional to execute proper procedures and to negotiate for them. Positive results happen when you have expert advocates on your side.

IRS Taxpayer Forgiveness Program – New IRS Effort to Help Struggling Taxpayers Get a Fresh Start – Major Changes Made to IRS Lien Process

The IRS current effort to help struggling taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Service announced in 2011 a series of new steps to help taxpayers can get a fresh start with their overdue income tax liabilities. In fact, the IRS program is called “the Fresh Start Initiative.”

The goal of the IRS is to help individuals and small businesses meet their tax obligations, without adding unnecessary burden to taxpayers. Specifically, the IRS is announcing new policies and programs to help taxpayers pay back taxes and avoid tax liens.

“We are making fundamental changes to our lien system and other collection tools that will help taxpayers and give them a fresh start,” former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said. “These steps are good for people facing tough times, and they reflect a responsible approach for the tax system.”

The IRS Fresh Start Initiative centers on the IRS making important changes to its lien filing practices that will lessen the negative impact on taxpayers. The changes include:

  • Significantly increasing the dollar threshold when federal income tax liens are generally issued, resulting in fewer tax liens.
  • Making it easier for taxpayers to obtain lien withdrawals after paying a tax bill.
  • Withdrawing federal income tax liens in most cases where a taxpayer enters into a Direct Debit Installment Agreement.
  • Creating easier access to Installment Agreements for more struggling small businesses.
  • Expanding a streamlined Offer in Compromise program to cover more taxpayers.

“These steps are in the best interest of both taxpayers and the tax system,” Shulman (former IRS Commissioner) said. “People will have a better chance to stay current on their taxes and keep their financial house in order. We all benefit if that happens.”

This is another in a series of steps to help struggling taxpayers. In 2008, the IRS announced federal income tax lien relief for people trying to refinance or sell a home. In 2009, the IRS added new flexibility for taxpayers facing payment or collection problems.

Federal Income Tax Lien Thresholds

The IRS will significantly increase the dollar thresholds when federal income tax liens are generally filed. The new dollar amount is in keeping with inflationary changes since the number was last revised. Currently, federal income tax liens are automatically filed at certain dollar levels for people with past-due balances.

The IRS plans to review the results and impact of the federal income tax lien threshold change in about a year.

A federal income tax lien gives the IRS a legal claim to a taxpayer’s property for the amount of an unpaid tax debt. Filing a Notice of Federal Tax Lien is necessary to establish priority rights against certain other creditors. Usually, the government is not the only creditor to whom the taxpayer owes money.

A federal income tax lien informs the public that the U.S. government has a claim against all property, and any rights to property, of the taxpayer. This includes property owned at the time the notice of lien is filed and any acquired thereafter. A lien can affect a taxpayer’s credit rating, so it is critical to arrange the payment of taxes as quickly as possible.

“Raising the lien threshold keeps pace with inflation and makes sense for the tax system,” Shulman said. “These changes mean tens of thousands of people won’t be burdened by liens, and this step will take place without significantly increasing the financial risk to the government.”

Federal Income Tax Lien Withdrawals

The IRS will also modify procedures that will make it easier for taxpayers to obtain lien withdrawals.

Federal Income tax liens will now be withdrawn once full payment of taxes is made if the taxpayer requests it. The IRS has determined that this approach is in the best interest of the government.

In order to speed the withdrawal process, the IRS will also streamline its internal procedures to allow collection personnel to withdraw the federal income tax lien.

Direct Debit Installment Agreements and Federal Income Tax Liens

The IRS is making other fundamental changes to liens in cases where taxpayers enter into a Direct Debit Installment Agreement (DDIA). For taxpayers with unpaid assessments of $25,000 or less, the IRS will now allow lien withdrawals under several scenarios:

  • Federal income tax lien withdrawals for taxpayers entering into a Direct Debit Installment Agreement.
  • The IRS will withdraw a federal income tax lien if a taxpayer on a regular Installment Agreement converts to a Direct Debit Installment Agreement.
  • The IRS will also withdraw federal income tax liens on existing Direct Debit Installment agreements upon a taxpayer request.

Federal Income tax liens will be withdrawn after a probationary period demonstrating that direct debit payments will be honored. The probationary period is usually three (3) months.

In addition, this lowers user fees and saves the government money from mailing monthly payment notices. Taxpayers can use the Online Payment Agreement application on IRS.gov to set-up with Direct Debit Installment Agreements.

“We are trying to minimize burden on taxpayers while collecting the proper amount of tax,” Shulman said. “We believe taking away taxpayer burden makes sense when a taxpayer has taken the proactive step of entering a direct debit agreement.”

IRS Installment Agreements and Small Businesses

The IRS will also make streamlined Installment Agreements available to more small businesses. The payment program will raise the dollar limit to allow additional small businesses to participate.

Small businesses with $25,000 or less in unpaid tax can participate. Currently, only small businesses with under $10,000 in liabilities can participate. Small businesses will have 24 months to pay.

The streamlined Installment Agreements will be available for small businesses that file either as an individual or as a business. Small businesses with an unpaid assessment balance greater than $25,000 would qualify for the streamlined Installment Agreement if they pay down the balance to $25,000 or less.

Small businesses will need to enroll in a Direct Debit Installment Agreement to participate.

“Small businesses are an important part of the nation’s economy, and the IRS should help them when we can,” Shulman said. “By expanding payment options, we can help small businesses pay their tax bill while freeing up cash flow to keep funding their operations.”

The IRS Settlement – Offers in Compromise

The IRS is also expanding a new streamlined Offer in Compromise (OIC) program to cover a larger group of struggling taxpayers.

This streamlined Offer in Compromise (OIC) is being expanded to allow taxpayers with annual incomes up to $100,000 to participate.

The Offer in Compromise (OIC) is subject to acceptance based on a complicated financial formula. An offer in compromise is a settlement agreement between a financially struggling taxpayer and the IRS that settles the taxpayer’s income tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Generally, an offer will not be accepted if the IRS believes that the income tax liability can be paid in full as a lump sum or through a payment agreement. The IRS looks at the taxpayer’s income and assets to make a determination regarding the taxpayer’s ability to pay.

Offer in Compromise – Internal Revenue Service – Hardship Settlements – Affordable IRS Settlement Offers

An Offer in Compromise is an IRS settlement 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.

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.

Submit an Offer in Compromise Settlement:

A taxpayer can submit an 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 90% 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 a 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

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.

How Much Money will the IRS Settle For? How Much will a Taxpayer Settle in an Offer in Compromise?

The average amount that the IRS settles for in an offer in compromise is currently $6,629.  Sounds good, does it not? If only an IRS settlement was that easy, every taxpayer would be submitting IRS settlements, right?

These are the facts. In 2014, the IRS received 68,000 offers in compromise from taxpayers. The IRS accepted 27,000 of those settlement offers. The IRS accepted 40% of the settlement offers submitted.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC.’S CLIENTS HAVE A 90% SUCCESS RATE 

The total amount accepted in all Offers in Compromise in 2014 was $179 million which is an average income tax settlement of $6,629.

The above statistics do not mean that a financially struggling taxpayer will settle with the IRS for that amount, or that there is a 40% chance your IRS settlement offer will be accepted.

The IRS uses a very specific and complicated formula in determining the settlement value of an Offer in Compromise and whether or not to accept or reject it.  Your success depends on how a taxpayer fits into the IRS formula.

The IRS Offer in Compromise program formula works like this:

  1. The IRS will figure out how much they think that a taxpayer can pay them every month in an installment agreement. They do this by asking for your pay stubs or, if you are self-employed, a recent profit and loss statement from your business.
  2. The IRS wants to know about your monthly living expenses.  Some of those expenses such as your housing and utilities, car payment(s) and food/clothing will subject to IRS limitations. The IRS calls these limitations Collection Financial Standards, often referred to as allowable living expenses. The IRS is trying to create more cash flow than the struggling taxpayer will actually have by limiting the expenses to amounts the IRS thinks are reasonable.

The taxpayer’s monthly income, minus the allowable living expenses, equals the taxpayer’s monthly cash flow.  The IRS is going to put a value on the cash flow for purposes of determining the Offer in Compromise settlement value.

If the taxpayer can pay the IRS the offered settlement within five months after acceptance, the IRS values your monthly cash flow by multiplying it by a factor of 12. $200 of monthly cash flow will equate to an offered settlement valuation of $2,400.

If the taxpayer is unable to pay the settlement in full within five months, the IRS will grant you 24 months payment terms. However, your monthly cash flow ($200/month in our example) would be multiplied by a factor of 24, increasing the settlement offer to $4,800. The IRS will give the taxpayer a discount for paying the IRS the offered settlement sooner rather than later.

After determining the value of the settlement offer, the IRS will then turn to a valuation of the taxpayer’s assets, and add that to the value of your cash flow.  How much is your “stuff” worth?  Your car, house, retirement plan?  Subtract any loans to arrive at equity, and in most cases, reduce that by 20% to get to your IRS valuation.

Add your cash flow (multiplied by a factor of 12 or 24) to your asset value, and you have your proposed IRS settlement amount.

The taxpayer’s success with an offer in compromise is based on a full understanding of the IRS investigative process into the income, living expenses and assets of the taxpayer. It is not a one size fits all situation. The amount of one taxpayer’s settlement has no bearing on the success of another taxpayer.  The IRS does not have a set percentage of settlement to the amount owed.  

The taxpayer’s settlement offer depends on convincing the IRS that your financial situation is dismal and that the IRS will never get paid after applying their internal guidelines.

What to Do When the IRS Plans to Takes a Taxpayer’s Social Security or Other Benefit Check

Our IRS income tax relief experts at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. 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 IRS.gov 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 anytime. 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 taxpayers 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.
YOU WILL RECEIVE THE FRESH START THAT YOU NEED
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.

Have an Income Tax Debt? Do You Owe the IRS Back Taxes? Make the IRS an Offer They Won’t Refuse

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?

RED QUESTION MARK

WHEN YOU NEED THE BEST IRS TAX RELIEF TEAM,

GET THE BEST

https://www.thebestirshelp.com

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.

Do Not Avoid The IRS – Protect Yourself – Fix Your IRS Tax Problem – Release IRS Levy and Seizutes

An interesting look at the importance of not ignoring the IRS comes from the IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., 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.

EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK HAS 20 MILLION TAXPAYERS WITH AN IRS PROBLEM.

10 MILLION TAXPAYERS EVERY YEAR FAIL TO FILE THEIR TAX RETURNS.

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.

THE IRS WILL FIND YOU.

THE IRS WILL LEVY YOU.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. CAN STOP AN IRS LEVY IN 1 DAY.

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 workplawageAn IRS wgae levy is continuous unless stopped and released.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. WILL HAVE AN IRS LEVY

STOPPED AND RELEASED IN 1 DAY.

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 PENALTIES WILL DOUBLE YOUR TAX DEBT IN APPROX. 4 YEARS.

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.

IT’S EASIER FOR THE IRS TO SIMPLY TAKE YOUR PAYCHECK OR BANK ACCOUNT.

YOU CANNOT PLAY “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN” WITH THE IRS.

YOU WILL LOSE.

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.

FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. WILL GET YOU RIGHT SIDE UP WITH 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.
