When you owe money to the IRS, it is hard to think about anything else. While being in debt is never fun, no matter who the creditor is, the IRS enjoys almost unlimited power to collect the money they are due.Unlike your mortgage lender or credit card company, the Internal Revenue Service has the power to attach your wages, raid your bank account and even take your freedom. No other creditor even comes close in terms of its power and influence and taking on the agency on your own could be asking for trouble. If you have received a notice from the IRS, you need to act fast, and you need the right assistance in your corner. Taking on the IRS requires specific expertise, and that is why it is so important to work with a quality tax resolution company. Here are seven reasons why working wit...

 If you owe back taxes to the IRS, some amount of panic is understandable. After all, the Internal Revenue Service has the power of the federal government in its corner, something no other debt collector can claim. They are considered the most brutal collection agency on the planet. It is easy to freeze up and just do nothing when you owe back taxes to the IRS, but hiding from, or doing nothing about your tax debt will not make it go away. In fact, ignoring the taxes you owe will only make the situation worse, since interest and penalties can really add up. You also risk having your paycheck garnished (the IRS does not need a court order to do this) or your bank account levied. The IRS can also file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien making it all but impossible to obtain financing for a car ...

And the men and women who are using gig work to make a good income.As this trend continues, many of those newly self-employed individuals are finding themselves at a loss, especially when tax season rolls around.

If you are running a small business, you have an unwanted, not so silent partner that will dig into your pocket every year: the IRS.The IRS wants to know what you are doing, how much you are earning and most importantly how much you are paying in taxes. And the tax agency is becoming increasingly aggressive in this regard. While the audit rate for individual returns has been hovering at far less than 1%, the audit rate for small businesses can be as much as 10 times higher.The IRS is watching what you do, and if they think you are not paying your fair share they will certainly come calling. When that demand letter from the IRS arrives, knowing what to do next can make all the difference, and the more you educate yourself the easier it will be to deal with, and eliminate, the tax debt.No...

So many of us dread the April 15 tax filing deadline. The U.S. tax code contains more words than the Bible and hundreds of pages of new rules and regulations are often added. With so much complexity, it is no wonder so many of us put off filing our taxes until the last possible minute, but taking that approach introduces its own stresses and can potentially land you in hot water with the IRS.   What if you do not get it done on time? You can file for an extension, but you are still required to pay the taxes you owe plus penalties and interest.   How do you know you didn't make a mistake with your last minute tax filing? Something as simple as a mathematical error could increase the odds of an audit and put you in the crosshairs of the IRS.   We specialize in helping people who owe $10,...

  The old saying that nothing is certain in life except death and taxes has never been truer, or more frightening. In the current environment, fear of the IRS is creeping in, and nothing will get your heart racing quite as fast as opening the mailbox and finding a letter from the tax agency.   When the IRS comes calling, you might think that there is nothing you can do. You may worry that you will have to liquidate your assets, sell your car, or even put your home on the market to afford what the IRS says you owe. The good news is that you may not have to pay that total amount, and before you write that big check you should check out the alternatives first.   The IRS understands taxpayers fall behind on their taxes, and they have programs in place that can reduce the amount you owe or ...

  Opening the mailbox and finding a letter from the IRS is frightening, but what happens next can be even scarier. The tax agency wields incredible power, and if they claim you owe additional taxes they have many different options for forcing you to pay.   When the IRS claims you owe additional money, they will act quickly, and that could leave you reeling, and trying hard to preserve the money you need to pay your bills, feed your family and keep a roof over your head. If you are employed, the IRS can reach into your paycheck, forcing the company you work for to withhold part of what you are owed until the tax debt has been satisfied.   The IRS can also hold onto any refunds and government payments you would otherwise be due. If you have been waiting for that big fat refund check to a...

Which Tax Records to Keep and For How Long. Do This and Avoid Tax Problems Later. Whether you are expecting a nice tax refund or preparing to write a big scary check, you know that April 15 is the annual tax filing deadline. What you may not know, however, is that Tax Day is every day at the IRS, and the tax agency is always reviewing the information taxpayers and business owners have provided.  That means that keeping tax records is about more than just smart bookkeeping - it is an integral form of self-protection. You see, millions of Americans get letters from the IRS stating they owe back taxes or requesting more information about their tax returns. It may be disconcerting, but the IRS has the right to request additional information months, or even years, after the return you filed ...
