Houston, TX Tax Resolution Services
The IRS Has Come to Collect. Now What?
Have you received a large tax bill that you are unable to pay? Is the IRS sending threatening letters to your home? Visiting your place of business?
Have your wages been garnished or bank accounts frozen?
We can help! Our experienced Tax Attorneys will evaluate your situation to create a customized solution to get the IRS off your back.
Your plan will use one or more of the following battle-tested strategies.
Offers in Compromise
The Offer in Compromise (OIC) program allows qualified taxpayers the opportunity to settle their tax debt for a lower amount through the IRS. These settlements have proven to be lifesavers for a number of struggling taxpayers. However, only a fraction of those who apply for OICs are actually granted relief.
Fortunately, our skilled advisors have years of experience in preparing successful OICs. The results? Higher OIC acceptance rates and dramatic savings for our clients.
Installment Agreements are tax debt repayment plans arranged through the IRS. Our Tax Attorneys tirelessly negotiate with the IRS to ensure the most fair and manageable terms for our clients.
Installment Agreements offer flexibility through various structuring and payment options. These agreements also may be modified, so if your circumstances change, you don’t have to worry about being committed to a payment you can no longer afford.
Currently Not Collectible
Our team understands that job loss, medical emergencies and other unexpected issues may arise and leave you helpless to repay your debts. We take on the task of convincing the IRS of this fact.
When the IRS agrees that a taxpayer is not in a position to make any payments toward a tax debt, the designation of Currently Not Collectible (CNC) may be granted. This status provides protection so you have time to get back on your feet without the stress of making payments or facing enforcement actions.
US Tax Court
After going through the Appeals process with the IRS, your next opportunity to challenge an assessed tax debt is through US Tax Court. We have Tax Attorneys on staff who are licensed and experienced to handle your case against the IRS.
In Tax Court cases, the IRS is represented by the Agency’s Staff Attorneys. Keep in mind that it definitely makes a difference to have a Tax Attorney go against another Attorney in your tax case.
The IRS has a penalty to accompany nearly every delinquency or mistake related to your taxes.
Many of these penalties are initially hefty and also may be compounded to add to your burden.
Thankfully, numerous penalties are eligible to be removed through the abatement process. Our experienced Tax Attorneys will petition the IRS on your behalf to ensure that you have the best opportunity for penalty relief.
Innocent Spouse Relief
Our tax system is designed to treat “married filing joint” taxpayers as a single entity. Typically, both jointly-filing spouses share full tax liability regardless of the involvement of each in incurring the debt. However, there are certain situations where one spouse is so far removed from the tax process that it would be unfair to hold him or her responsible for the other spouse’s liability. Our knowledgeable advisors are eager to defend clients with innocent spouse claims from unfair liabilities.
