Tax debt and the knowledge that you have delinquent returns can be stressful to deal with. Heck, it can even cause many sleepless nights. The first thing to note is that it doesn’t have to be that way and there is no realistic reason for sleepless nights or living in fear.
There is always a solution to get back into compliance. Yes, it is possible. Granted it may not always be 100% on your terms. But it is possible to resolve your tax problems and get IRS tax relief.
There “really” is such a thing as a magic potion for IRS tax relief.
Read on and I will share my secret.
The IRS is like any other lender or collector in that they are focused on your compliance with the terms of your obligation as a U.S. taxpayer – the filing of required tax returns and taxes. However, I think they differ from most other debt collectors in many ways.
One of which is that they are interested in your compliance first and foremost and assisting you in the process of making that a reality. They won’t hassle you day and night, but at the same time they will make it known with communication letters about your tax obligations and that your tax problem hasn’t gone away.
Important Factors When Seeking IRS Tax Relief
So if you owe the IRS money or haven’t filed your tax returns, there are some important factors to keep in mind when seeking IRS tax relief:
- Promises that you hear on TV and the radio about settling your taxes for “pennies on the dollar” are exactly what it sounds like – “too good to be true”. While it is possible to reduce your tax debt through the offer in compromise program, the reality is that most taxpayers won’t qualify. If you are promised IRS tax relief that sounds too good to be true, guess what you’re probably right…
- The next item to remember is that it’s essential to make sure you are well represented when dealing with the IRS and that you choose your representative carefully. You want to make sure that your representative is experienced, qualified and will be responsive to you as a client. E-mail and talk to various representatives before making a decision. While price is a factor, when dealing with taxes it shouldn’t be your primary deciding factor. Time and time again I help taxpayers that have been “penny-wise and pound-foolish” where saving a few dollars has created new, more costly problems and oftentimes no solution to the IRS tax relief that was sought after in the first place.
- It is important to understand that ignoring your tax debt and/or delinquent returns is not a realistic approach for IRS tax relief. IRS tax problems rarely, if ever, disappear with no action. Obviously, no taxpayer, including myself wants to pay any more tax than legally obligated to do so. In fact, my goal with my own return and all of my clients is to make sure that you pay the minimum tax liability that you are legally obligated to – that means ensuring that no stone is left unturned with tax deductions, credits, etc. But also, making sure that the return is complete and that all income is likewise also reported so that you are not putting yourself at risk by filing an incomplete return.
You may be anxious and ready to get started on your path towards IRS tax relief. You may be wondering where to get the “magic potion” that will solve all your tax problems now and forever.
