Coast to Coast - IRS Help

IRS Tax Relief - Tax Debt Help



You most likely have already received your tax documents (W-2, 1099, etc.) for the 2022 season and it’s time to file your tax return. Many taxpayers experience some anxiety around filing season because of uncertainty. Will you owe the IRS? Will your tax refund be confiscated (garnished)? There are a few instances where you can expect the IRS to reduce your tax refund, or the Agency could garnish the whole thing.


Unemployment Taxes


Since the start of the pandemic, many Americans have relied on unemployment benefits more than ever before. Being aware of unemployment taxes and withholding taxes from each check is extremely important to your following tax season.


If you received unemployment benefits during 2021 and you didn’t withhold taxes, you can expect to owe a tax debt to the IRS.

Tax Withholding Estimator


You don’t have to wait until you file to figure out what you owe. Taking advantage of tools like the IRS Tax Withholding Estimator can help you understand what you will owe and why. Doing this in advance can allow you to start saving, or prepare to make a payment plan with the IRS.


If you’re a business owner or a 1099 filer, you should expect to withhold taxes quarterly. Failing to pay throughout the year leaves you with a large sum during tax season. You can also use the Tax Withholding Estimator to figure out what you will owe.


Child Support


Owing court-ordered payments such as child support can also garnish your tax refund. Child support agencies collected over $30 billion in back child support through the federal tax refund offset program since 2010.


To learn how much you owe in child support, you can visit your state’s child support website ( for Californians) and use the guideline calculator. If you have any bills, letters, or contact information regarding your case, you can utilize

that information as well.


How to stop the IRS from taking your tax refund?


Given the state of the economy, a lot of people are experiencing financial hardship right now. The IRS is not oblivious to the possibility that you can’t afford to pay them right away. You can see if you qualify for Currently Non-Collectible (CNC) status, which will stop the IRS from collecting payments from you (usually 12 to 18 months). Letters, calls, and other means of collection activity must cease once your status changes to CNC.


You must be able to prove financial hardship and that you need the money to cover your everyday expenses (rent, food, clothing, utilities, car payment, etc.). 


Do you owe a large sum ($10,000 or more) in back taxes that you can’t pay back?


Give Flat Fee a call for a free consultation at (866) 747-7435 to learn what your tax relief options are. You may qualify for the IRS Fresh Start Program, which can get you on an affordable payment plan, or even reduce your liability balance (tax settlement).
