and need tax representation, please take a look through some of our IRS tax resolution services that we can represent your interests with.

IRS Tax Resolution Services

  • Offer in Compromise: This is a partial settlement of your total tax liability. To qualify for this tax resolution option, there must be an extraordinary reason the IRS should not collect the total amount of tax due. Doubt as to Collectability and Effective Tax Administration are the most common approaches and are based upon income, expenses and assets.
  • Installment Agreement: A payment plan with the IRS to make regular and monthly payments to pay off the taxes owed.
  • IRS Collections: The IRS has far greater powers than any other bill collector. The IRS has the power to put in place a wage garnishment, levy bank accounts, and other property.
  • Bankruptcy: Under some circumstances, you may have your tax liability discharged in bankruptcy or paid through a bankruptcy plan.
  • Innocent Spouse Relief: Many married taxpayers choose to file a joint tax return because of certain benefits this filing status allows. In filing jointly, both taxpayers are jointly and severally liable for the tax and any additions to tax, interest, or penalties that arise as a result of the joint return even if they later divorce. Joint and several liability means that each taxpayer is legally responsible for the entire liability. Thus, both spouses are generally held responsible for all the tax due even if one spouse earned all the income or claimed improper deductions or credits. This is true even if a divorce decree states that a former spouse will be responsible for any amounts due. In some cases, however, a spouse can get relief from joint and several liability.
  • Injured Spouse: If you file a joint return and all or part of your refund is applied against your spouses’ past-due federal tax, state income tax, child or spousal support or federal nontax debt, such as a student loan, you may be entitled to injured spouse relief.
  • Statute of Limitations Review : There is a ten year statute of limitations from the IRS assessment date. The statute period does not begin until the taxpayer has filed a tax return. A substitute for return (SFR) prepared by the IRS does not count as a filed return. If the statute clock has started and the IRS has not collected within the ten year period (assuming no interruption to the statute period), the tax is no longer collectible and the IRS must release any lien or levy against the taxpayer. A careful review and analysis of your situation and IRS records will allow for a determination on whether the statute has expired.
  • Penalty Abatement: A reasonable cause statement made to reduce or eliminate tax penalties and interest on your underlying liability.
  • Currently Non-Collectible Status: Under some circumstances, the IRS will agree to forgo collection if you cannot pay the tax. While this will place a hold on collection activity, it is a temporary hold. The IRS will re-visit ability to pay to see if the economic condition of the taxpayer has improved.
  • IRS Tax Appeal: If you disagree with the decision by the IRS, you may request an appeal of your case.

Get Tax Relief

If you owe more taxes than you can pay, we can draft an Offer in Compromise, where we present your particular situation to the IRS and negotiate a payment amount with terms that allow you to pay your obligations without having an adverse impact on your daily living needs. Individuals have saved tens of thousands of dollars and still complied with their tax duties as citizens.

Tax Samaritan will analyze your situation and determine factors not taken into consideration by the IRS. We will fight to get you fair treatment and the federal tax help that you need specific to your situation. We will examine the applicable facts to determine an appropriate action plan to minimize your tax liability and explain your situation and options in a way that is easy to understand.  If, at the end of our tax resolution services review we still determine that you owe the IRS money, we can try to have penalties and interest waived.  We can also propose a reasonable payment plan to the IRS.

An offer in compromise (offer) is an agreement between you (the taxpayer) and the IRS that settles a tax debt for less than the full amount owed. This applies to all taxes, including any interest, penalties, or additional amounts arising under the Internal Revenue Code. It is one of many tax resolution options the may be applicable to you.

An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe if the IRS offer is accepted. It provides eligible taxpayers with a path toward paying off their tax debt and getting a “fresh start.” The ultimate goal is a compromise that suits the best interest of both the taxpayer and the IRS. Generally you must propose an appropriate offer amount based on what the IRS considers your true ability to pay. It may be a legitimate option if you can’t pay your full tax liability. Or, doing so creates a financial hardship.

The “Pennies On The Dollar” Myth

A common myth or perception thanks to advertisements is the impression that taxpayers can easily settle their tax liability “for pennies on the dollar”. While you can certainly obtain a lower settlement of your tax debt. They provide an incorrect perception that they are “accepted” offers.

The IRS considers your unique set of facts and circumstances. Taxpayers who owe back taxes can take advantage of the Offer-in-Compromise program, but YOU MUST QUALIFY. So it is important that you have representation from an experienced tax professional, such as Tax Samaritan. So that your interests are protected and that an appropriate offer is made based on your:

Ability to pay;
Income;
Expenses; and
Asset equity.

The OIC application requires you to describe your financial situation in detail. So, before you proceed you must be willing to make a full and complete disclosure in the above areas and to pay the required application fee and down payment (as applicable). It all comes down to a formula. The IRS utilizes a formula known as “Reasonable Collection Potential” or “RCP” for short, to determine qualification and if the taxpayer qualifies, what the correct amount is to offer the IRS.

This is why over 90% of our offers are accepted and why so few other firms find success and at the end of the day have over-promised what actually can reasonably be delivered.

If you have an outstanding tax liability, the IRS (or state) oftentimes assesses additional amounts due in the form of penalties and interest that can and will be added to the original tax amount due. These additional penalties can result in a significant increase to the underlying tax debt. Generally, relief from penalties (known as a penalty abatement request) falls into one of four categories:

Reasonable Cause is based on all the facts and circumstances in each situation and allows the IRS to provide relief from a penalty that would otherwise be assessed.Each case is judged individually based on the facts and circumstances at hand. It is important that a thorough and factual reasonable cause explanation is prepared with your abatement request by experienced tax representation, such as Tax Samaritan, to increase your likelihood for a penalty abatement based on reasonable cause.

Statutory Exceptions: Tax legislation and the Internal Revenue Code may provide an exception to a penalty. At Tax Samaritan, we can perform the research to see if such relief is applicable to your situation,

Administrative Waivers: This may occur in situations where there is a delay by the IRS such as in the issuance of revised tax forms, publishing guidance or other conditions,

Correction Of Service Error: As unbelievable as this may sound, the IRS can occasionally make an error in computing or assessing tax. When identified by the taxpayer or a tax professional, IRS errors can be abated.

With assistance from experienced representation from Tax Samaritan, the IRS will consider proper and complete requests for penalty abatement (relief).

A simple penalty abatement request that is sent generally will not be sufficient. Most insufficient abatement requests are rejected. Nevertheless, it is always worthwhile to make a request – but the request must be well thought out.
