Not filing your taxes can happen for many reasons. The most important first step is to get up to date and file your back returns. Our Los Angeles CPA firm will work with the IRS on your behalf to resolve any past issues, file your back taxes and do all we can to minimize your back tax debt and any penalties associated with your failure to file.
The IRS will not allow you to use other tax debt relief options like an Offer in Compromise or Installment Agreement until your back taxes are filed. Once the back tax returns are filed we can work with the IRS to arrange alternate payment methods if you are unable to pay the balance due.
Never ignore a notice from the IRS – it can have very serious consequences. The IRS can place a lien on your property, house, car or wages or even go as far as seizing your property in order to collect the back taxes. Contact our Los Angeles Accounting firm immediately so we can begin to negotiate on your behalf. When you work through an accounting firm, it can show the IRS that you are trying to resolve the issue quickly.
Wage Garnishment is one of the ways the IRS uses to collect the taxes you owe. If they contact your employer they will demand that your employer send part of your wages to the IRS to cover your tax debt. If your wages have been garnished, contact our Los Angeles IRS specialists immediately. We will contact the IRS to potentially work out an arrangement to settle your debt and have the wage garnishment removed.
If you have received a notice that you are being audited by the IRS, don't panic - contact our Los Angeles CPA firm immediately. As experienced tax specialists, we have the experience and expertise to deal with the IRS on your behalf. We understand their rules and are experts in negotiating the lowest possible debt settlement allowed by law.
Offer in compromise - Not everyone will qualify for an Offer in Compromise (OIC), an agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS, that can help you settle your tax debt for less than what you owe. We are experienced tax professionals who have experience negotiating Offers in Compromise with the IRS. Contact us today so we can determine if your situation qualifies for this special program.
Installment agreement - When you cannot afford to pay your tax debt immediately, we can help you negotiate an Installment Agreement with the IRS. This type of payment plan option is good for those who cannot afford a lump sum payment to cover their tax debt.
Currently Not Collectible - When your account is placed into a Currently Not Collectible status, that means that your account is removed from the IRS' active collection status. There are very strict guidelines for people who qualify for this status. Contact us today so we can help you determine if you qualify.
Penalty and Interest - We are experienced at representing clients before the IRS to negotiate lower penalties or interest payments on back taxes. Sometimes it is possible to have the penalties and interest completely removed, depending on the situation.
