Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. can do this because our company of motivated professionals specialize in understanding exactly how the IRS works and what vital documentation is needed.

IRS wage garnishments and IRS Levies will be stopped, released and removed in one business day, if done properly. One has to realize that the last resort the IRS utilizes is a wage garnishment or levy. This is one of the most lethal weapons available to the IRS. There are several ways to have the levy or garnishment released.

The first thing that has to be done is to verify that the taxpayer is in compliance with the IRS. Being in compliance means that all outstanding and missing tax returns for every year has been filed with the IRS. Those tax returns include 1040’s, 1099’s, quarterly estimated tax payments, 940/941’s depending on the particular situation of the taxpayer.

The first thing to do in order to determine if you are in compliance with IRS regulations is to immediately contact the IRS upon receipt notice of an IRS garnishment or levy. Be advised that you need to be extremely cautious (the IRS is not your “buddy”) when contacting the IRS in regards your IRS income tax problem. Before the IRS will give you any information of your compliance, they will immediately interrogate you, trying to find out what bank accounts you have, what other incomes you have and the assets you own. This is all in an effort to begin to levy, garnish or seize any assets the taxpayer may have. This is one of the main reasons why an IRS tax professional should contact the IRS on behalf of the financially struggling taxpayer. An IRS Tax Attorney does not have to release that personal information to the IRS. Your representative’s goal at this point is to determine if the taxpayer is in compliance with the IRS.

Everything is determined by the IRS computers and the automated collections system (ACS). The only way to be brought into compliance is by filing all years that were not filed. Depending on what the computer states, you may have to file 6 year’s worth of IRS tax returns or they may even go back to 15 year’s worth of taxes. This is why the IRS must be contacted immediately to figure out what needs to be done to bring the taxpayer back into compliance.

If there are compliance issues, the IRS will inform the tax professional or the taxpayer what taxes must be filed. It is important to prepare these taxes, but not to mail them in. They need to be faxed to the IRS so they are acknowledged in the IRS computers immediately and the processing of these returns can start within hours, not weeks or months. Normally, the IRS will not release the wage garnishment until the tax returns are at least submitted for processing to the IRS.

Our IRS Tax Attorneys Have Had Great Success in Stopping an IRS Levy Prior to Filing Missing Tax Returns

If necessary, the tax return department at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. can expedite the preparation of your tax returns. Once it is determined that a taxpayer is in compliance, the next thing the IRS is looking for is a resolution to the outstanding income taxes owed to the IRS. A taxpayer will either need to enter into an Installment Agreement, be declared to be Currently not Collectible (CNC) or file an Offer in Compromise settlement (OIC).

Should the financially struggling taxpayer owe more than $25,000, the IRS will request your financial information through certain IRS Forms in order to determine how much, if anything, the taxpayer can afford to pay towards the entire income tax liability. If your file is being handled in the automated collections division, an IRS 433F form (a simplified Collection Information Statement) has to be prepared and submitted along with supporting documentations. If the file is with an IRS Revenue Officer, an IRS 433A form (a detailed Collection Information Statement) has to be prepared and filed with the Revenue Officer, also along with the supporting documentation. The IRS has many years of experience in squeezing uninformed taxpayers and the IRS knows that in 90% of the cases, the wage garnishment or IRS levy is a hardship on the taxpayer, and the proper procedure is that after submitting these financials, the IRS should release the wage garnishment within hours. Unfortunately, some taxpayers try to perform this procedure by themselves. Without an experienced tax professional involved, the IRS will simply drag their feet and prolongs the taxpayer’s agony because it is the IRS’s position to take this drastic action due to the fact that the taxpayer did not comply with any of their prior requests. The IRS tax professional you chose to represent you should force the IRS to comply with the rules and regulations to have these matters expedited within hours and not weeks or months.

VERY, VERY IMPORTANT: There is a second method of having an IRS wage garnishment or IRS levy stopped, removed and released. Our IRS Tax Attorneys will initiate procedures to prove to the IRS that this IRS wage garnishment is a true and immediate hardship to the taxpayer. A hardship to the taxpayer is that housing, transportation or food expenses are at an immediate risk; i.e. if your electricity is about to be disconnected, and you can provide a statement from your service provider showing that your electricity is being shut off due to non-payment or if you are able to provide an eviction notice or foreclosure notice due to non-payment the same method applies. Asking the IRS to release the wage garnishment based on these facts is a very difficult task because the IRS is receiving nothing in return providing a solution to the outstanding taxes. This is an up-hill fight with the IRS but the IRS is supposed to follow procedures and in most situations the taxpayer is unable to resolve this issue without a tax professional.

How our IRS Tax Resolution Team Will Settle and Negotiate your case with the Internal Revenue Service:

1. Our IRS Tax Attorneys immediately send a power of attorney to the IRS letting them know that you, the financially struggling taxpayer, have an income tax representative. You will never have to speak to the IRS.

2. Our IRS Tax Attorneys and our income tax preparation department will make sure all your tax returns are filed and current. If your income tax returns are not up to date, the IRS will refuse to work your case. This is leverage that they use to get you compliant. Our expert tax relief team can pull tax transcripts, file and prepare your tax returns within days, even if you have lost your tax records.

3. If the IRS requires a current financial statement our IRS Tax Attorney, working with you, will secure a required 433-A (IRS financial statement), verify the income and expenses and work out a settlement agreement. The IRS will require a closing settlement method for each case.

An IRS Income Tax Settlement Agreements can be in different forms:

a. An IRS Hardship Settlement – Cases usually go into a 3 year suspended status because of an inability to pay. This is formally called currently non collectable or CNC. Your case will go into a hardship status because the taxpayer does not have the income coming in to meet his/her current expenses. The IRS will use the National Standards Program to assess hardship of a financially struggling taxpayer.

b. IRS Payment Agreements – Cases can be closed with agreed upon monthly installment payments to the IRS. We will review the different programs the IRS uses for the lowest possible amount required. Remember this: Anyone can agree to a very bad IRS Installment Agreement. An IRS Tax Relief Professional will get you the best deal possible.

c. IRS Offer in Compromise (OIC). There are three types of IRS Settlements:

The IRS may accept an Offer in Compromise based on three grounds:

1. Doubt as to Collect Ability – Doubt exists that the taxpayer could ever pay the full amount of tax liability owed within the remainder of the statutory period for collection.

2. Doubt as to Liability – A legitimate doubt exists that the assessed tax liability is correct. Possible reasons to submit a doubt as to liability offer include:

(1) the examiner made a mistake interpreting the law,

(2) the examiner failed to consider the taxpayer’s evidence or

(3) the taxpayer has new evidence.

3. Effective Tax Administration / Exceptional Circumstances – There is no doubt that the tax is correct and there is potential to collect the full amount of the tax owed, but an exceptional circumstance exists that would allow the IRS to consider a settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. To be eligible for a settlement compromise on this basis, a taxpayer must demonstrate that the collection of the tax would create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable

4. We review with our clients how they want to settle their case. We get them an agreement based on their current financial needs.

The only settlement circumstance you should be concerned with is “Doubt as to Collectablity.

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.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CURRENT IRS POLICY BEFORE IT CHANGES

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 choosen:

  • 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 does 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 offer settlement sooner rather than later.

After determining the value of the settlement offer, the IRS will then turn to a valuation of the taxpayers 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.
Where can a taxpayer get IRS help if they need it?
You can receive expert IRS tax representation at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. We are “America’s Best & Most Affordable IRS Income Tax Relief Team.”

Los Angeles IRS Income Tax Levy Help – California IRS Income Tax Garnishment – Stop Release Remove

LOS ANGELES TAXPAYERS, HAVE AN INCOME TAX DEBT?

CALIFORNIA TAXPAYERS, HAVE AN IRS LEVY PROBLEM?

If a taxpayer does not take action to remedy back tax problems, the IRS issue a levy order and an employer will be legally obligated to garnish and seize a taxpayer’s paycheck until such time that either the income tax debt is paid off or the struggling taxpayer resolves the tax debt problem in some other way.

Unlike an IRS bank levy, a wage levy (garnishment) is continuous. In other words, an IRS income tax wage levy (garnishment) will not be stopped, released and removed by the IRS until such time that the tax debt is satisfied or resolved in some way.

Also, please note that states, like California, also issue wage garnishments to collect tax debt. In fact, the State of California Franchise Tax Board has a very proactive and aggressive program to collect any back taxes that the State of California is owed.

Guide to Employers & Human Resource Managers Who Have an Employee with an IRS Wage Levy – Flat Fee Tax Service

As  an employer or human resource manager, you may have received an IRS notice to levy one of your employees. The employee with the IRS income tax problem may be valuable to your operation. You don’t want to lose your employee. What do you need to do?

The IRS has strict and immediate time constraints for complying with the order to seize your employee’s wages. With the proper representation, your employee can have the IRS wage levy stopped, avoided and released in 1 day.

Under Internal Revenue Code section 6331, the IRS may issue a levy for the purpose of seizing a taxpayer’s property to satisfy unpaid and overdue income tax debt. This is done by sending you, the employer, an IRS Form 668-W(c).

Our job at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. is to have the IRS stop the wage levy within 24 hours. Our IRS tax relief team will have the IRS issue a release of levy by sending you, the employer, IRS Form 668-D (Release of Levy).

Your employee, who you do not want to lose, may be eligible to settle their IRS income tax debt. At the very minimum, our team of IRS tax resolution experts will negotiate a manageable IRS installment agreement. At best, your employee will have their income tax debt settled for far less than what is owed.

As an employer of someone with an IRS problem, please, do not try and outwit the IRS. If your employee obtains expert tax income relief representation, it isn’t necessary to try and get around the levy. If you do get caught non-complying with a wage levy order and refuse to surrender any property subject to the levy, the employer can become personally liable for your employees income tax debt. In addition, a penalty up to 50% may be added to the income tax debt.

The IRS Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. have never failed to stop, avoid and release an IRS wage levy. Your employee has rights. Our tax relief team will protect your employee from the wage levy. As previously written, your employee may also be eligible to settle with the IRS through the Offer in Compromise program.

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 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

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.

How Can I Stop an IRS Wage Levy – Stop Wage Garnishment by Flat Fee Tax Service

If you are facing and getting hit with an IRS wage garnishment, it is important to act fast so you can limit the impact the IRS will have on your financial well being. The IRS will continuously take the money from your paycheck with little regard to your other financial needs. The IRS does not care about your rent, your mortgage, your car payment or feeding your family unless they are forced to do so.

There are many methods that can be used to stop an IRS wage levy (garnishment) if you have an experienced IRS tax relief professional handling your income tax problem. The method you use will be determined by your tax, financial, and work situation. The most ideal method to choose would be one that resolves your income tax problem as well as stops the IRS wage levy “in it’s tracks.”

STOP YOUR IRS LEVY TODAY. CALL: 1-800-589-3078

Ideally, an IRS wage garnishment (levy) will be stopped in one day (often within hours) and your income tax problem will be resolved at the same time or very soon afterwards. When the IRS sends their final notice of intent to levy the IRS will state that you need to pay your past due tax debt in full or come to some other form of arrangement to prevent the levy from happening. Typically you can still do that even after the levy has taken effect. Below are some methods to pay in full or make some other form of arrangement.

Pay your income tax debt in fullIF YOU COULD DO THIS, YOU WOULDN’T BE THE TROUBLE YOUR NOW IN. Once your income tax debt has been paid in full the wage garnishment will immediately stop. Even if you can’t pay in full maybe you can borrow from family or friends (not recommended), have a garage sale and sell some assets, refinance your home, or even try to pay taxes on a credit card (also not recommended).

SO, LET’S FORGET THIS OPTION.

Enter into an Installment Agreement – An installment agreement is a PAYMENT PLAN between you and the IRS that says you will pay off your tax debt in monthly increments until everything has been completely paid off. Once you have an installment agreement accepted by the IRS, the wage garnishment / seizure will be stopped. You will remain in good standing with the IRS as long as you keep up on your monthly payments and do not default on your agreement. The IRS prefers this method to be used if taxes cannot be paid in full.

PLEASE NOTE: MOST PEOPLE DEFAULT ON THEIR IRS PAYMENT PLANS BECAUSE THE AMOUNT AGREED UPON WAS MORE THAN THE STRUGGLING TAXPAYER COULD REALLY AFFORD. WHEN YOU DEFAULT, AND YOU WILL, THE IRS WILL LEVY YOU AGAIN.

GREAT NEWS

YOU CAN SETTLE WITH THE IRS FOR LESS.

File for an Offer in Compromise – An offer in compromise is an IRS settlement program that allows financially struggling taxpayers to settle for less than the total amount of back tax debt that they owe. This is a very hard filing to get accepted if you do not know what your doing. Less than 1/2 of the IRS settlement submissions are actually accepted by the IRS. If you are considering this type of filing it is highly suggested that you do some in-depth research to see if you are actually a likely candidate.

You should consult with an experienced IRS tax attorney to get their opinion. When you file for an offer in compromise your wage levy will typically be delayed until your offer has been reviewed. It will not stop it if the IRS thinks you are using the filing as a stalling tactic though. If your offer is accepted you will be considered in good standing with the IRS and no wage levy will exist.

THE IRS TAX RELIEF TEAM AT FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. CAN TELL YOU DURING OUR INITIAL CONSULTATION IF YOU ARE QUALIFIED AND ELIGIBLE FOR AN IRS OFFER IN COMPROMISE.

Currently not Collectible – The IRS does have some guidelines as to when it is unfair to collect from a taxpayer. The only problem is they will not stop collecting until it is proved to them that it is unfair to collect from the taxpayer. If you can prove to the IRS that the garnishing and seizing of your wages, Social Security, Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Veteran’s Pension causes financial hardship the garnishment (levy) will be stopped. This is only a temporary solution and may or may not resolve income tax problem. If you get placed into Currently not Collectible status, it is possible to run out the Statute of Limitations on the IRS collection enforcement.

The IRS will check on you every 12 to 18 months to see if your financial condition has improved so that you can make payments. If you cannot, the Currently not Collectible status will continue.

IF YOU QUALIFY FOR CURRENTLY NOT COLLECTIBLE, WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU “GO ALL THE WAY” AND DO AN OFFER IN COMPROMISE.

An IRS garnishment (levy) is very difficult to deal with and it is important that you act fast to limit the effectiveness of this collection method and get your paycheck freed. It is highly suggested that you consult with a experienced IRS tax professional when dealing with an IRS wage garnishment.
