If you want to know how the tax resolution process can help people get tax relief, I recommend watching this video interview I had this last February by KTLA Channel 5 Alan Mendelson host of “Best Buys with Alan Mendelson“ a television show that features the best deals and money saving ideas.
The video gives consumers a true understanding of the tax resolution process and that reputable firms like Tax Defense Partners can help them permanently resolve even the most complicated tax problems. (Below the video are the important highlights from the interview).
The Recession Hit Good People Really Hard
Most of our clients are good people who have had bad life-altering events happen to them such as the losing their job and income. Many try to “do the right thing” to pay the bills often raiding their 401k to hoping to repay their account in 60 days to avoid the 10% penalty. However, they hadn’t anticipated prolonged unemployment and they end up digging a deeper hole.
The Good News: There are Tax Relief Options
Struggling taxpayers have more options to rid themselves of IRS tax problems for good! Understanding current economic challenges, the IRS has expanded its rules for the Offer in Compromise (OIC) Program. Yes, the IRS is now more willing to make a deal, but you will still have to prove you don’t have the money to pay your IRS tax debt. The Offer in Compromise is an invasive intrusive paper blizzard, but if you are a good candidate it can save your financial life!
How Tax Resolution Services Works
Half of our clients have an average of 4-11 years of unfiled tax returns. Our first objective is to get them into filing compliance by preparing and filing their previous returns. We then make sure their W-4 withholdings are correct and get them into withholding compliance. Once we get taxpayers back into complete IRS compliance, the IRS is more willing to make a deal.
Clients give us the Power of Attorney when they retain our services. This allows us to advocate their tax matter directly with the IRS using their protocols, procedures and regulations to our client’s best advantage. We strive to negotiate an IRS tax settlement that can reduce a client’s IRS debt. In audit representation, we are intent on getting a client’s liabilities reduced. In some cases, we try for penalty abatement or partial-pay installment agreement. In other cases where a client is a good candidate, we can help get them innocent spouse relief.
Here are two key points to remember about resolving tax problems with the IRS
- It doesn’t matter how a client got into this problem. The case we present to the IRS focuses on their financial situation today and what it looks like going forward.
- The best time to resolve your tax issues is when you are in the worst financial situation and have no means to pay your tax debt. Don’t wait until you have money to pay your debt! In the world of tax resolution, bad is good!
Audit Protection Plans
A great way consumers can seek audit representation is through Tax Audit Defense, a pre-paid plan that allows taxpayers if they get audited, to have tax audit specialists on their side to handle their IRS audit for them. I liken it to buying a service warranty on your tax return. Members are protected from having to deal with intimidating IRS audit correspondence or communications.
The tax relief you need is easier than you think. If you owe $20,000 in back taxes, have over three years of unfiled tax returns, or are under audit, you may be a good candidate for tax resolution. Let us take the burden of IRS tax issues from your dining room table into our offices to resolve.
