Seeking the help of a professional tax attorney can be the single most important thing you do when you owe back taxes to the IRS or to your state.
Whether you have just begun receiving threatening notices about your unpaid taxes, or you are already experiencing the crippling effects of the IRS’s collection methods, a qualified tax professional can provide the relief you need.
Despite this fact, however, many people simply ignore their tax problems. They either don’t want to face the situation, or they fear that using an attorney will be too complicated.
Unfortunately, ignoring the problem will only make things worse and cause even more negative consequences on your financial situation.
What the IRS can (and will) do if you owe back taxes:
- Take money directly out of your work paycheck by means of wage garnishment.
- File a lien against you, making it nearly impossible for you to obtain financing of any kind, including credit cards, car loans, mortgages or refinancing of existing loans.
- Levy your bank accounts, taking money directly out of your checking and savings.
- Make your tax debt significantly higher through penalties and compounding interest on the amount you owe. Even the smallest tax debt can quickly get out of control because of these penalties!
- Hit you with significant fines if you are convicted for evading your taxes or if you are a business owner who has failed to pay withheld taxes taken from your employee’s wages.
If you’re already experiencing any of these outcomes, then you know how stressful and debilitating it can be. But the fact of the matter is: help is available to you!
A professional tax attorney can help you turn things around, get the IRS off your back, and potentially save you a significant amount of money too.
The first step is to face your problem head on, understand your options, and find the right tax professional to get your life back on track ASAP.
Signs You Need a Tax Attorney – Immediately
Many people are unsure if they need a tax attorney, even when the answer is right in front of them. Here are some of the key reasons why you should seek the help of a professional immediately.
Any single one of these reasons is enough to get an attorney:
-➜ You owe back taxes to the IRS or to your state, or you haven’t filed your taxes. -➜ You believe you are unable to afford or pay the back taxes you owe. -➜ You have received a notice from the IRS threatening to take action against you. -➜ You are already facing one or several IRS collection methods, such as wage garnishment, liens, levies or other penalties. -➜ You believe that your tax debt situation has resulted in an outcome that you believe is less than fair and equitable. -➜ You have used other representation previously that you believe was not satisfactory.
As you’ll see below, a good tax attorney can provide you with a solution to each of these common tax problems. But if you don’t want your situation to get worse, then you need to act quickly.
How a Tax Attorney Can Provide the Relief You Need
Depending on your specific situation, here are some of the solutions that professional tax attorneys can provide to help you turn things around.
- They can get the IRS off your back. If you are receiving notices from the IRS, or threats of collection action, an attorney can deal directly with the IRS to stop the harassment and take the appropriate steps toward resolution.
- They can save you money. A qualified tax professional could potentially reduce your tax debt by tens of thousands of dollars. Through an offer in compromise, the attorney will help settle your tax debt for less than the amount you owe. Plus, through penalty abatement, they may be able to completely or partially remove the penalties against you, reducing your debt even further.
- They can appeal collection actions. If you are already subject to collection actions, such as wage garnishment, a federal tax lien or seizure of property, then you have the right to appeal. A professional tax attorney can guide you through this complex process and ensure that you get the best possible outcome.
- They can relieve you from debt & penalties as well as provide Innocent Spouse Relief If you believe your tax debt is solely the responsibility of your spouse or ex-spouse, then an attorney can help you potentially be relieved of all IRS tax, interest, and penalties resulting from a jointly filed return.
- They can protect your assets. Your home, your car, your business – these are all at risk if you owe considerable back taxes to the IRS. But by seeking professional representation, you can protect these assets from seizure and have peace of mind.
- They can help you put your life back on track. The consequences of owing back taxes to the government can be stressful and overwhelming. But with the right help, you can take control of the problem, relieve the heavy burden and finally move forward with your life.
