Have You Received an IRS Form 4549?

Do You Have Unfiled Tax Returns?

Are You Delinquent in Filing Back Tax Returns?


If you have not filed tax returns and have delinquent tax returns, the IRS will audit your tax years and will reassess your tax liability. You will receive an IRS Form 4549. If you haven't filed a tax return, there isn't a tax liability to collect. The IRS has a mechanism to create a tax liability and it's called a "Substitute for Return (SFR)." The IRS will create a "Substitute for Return" (#SubstituteforReturn) which will allow the IRS to enforce collection against you. A SFR will create an inflated tax liability that will be much larger than the tax debt you really owe.

Enforced collection means the IRS can and will order a levy on you and seize your paycheck and/or bank account. The IRS can and will seize a minimum of 15% of your Social Security, Social Security Disability (SSDI) or your Veteran's Pension through the Federal Payment Levy Program (FPLP).

The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief are known nationwide as the tax resolution company that routinely has an IRS wage levy stopped and released in 1 day / 24 hours. No tax relief team can have your IRS wage levy stopped faster than our experience Tax Attorneys can. No one.

Although the able Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Relief can save your paycheck, make no mistake about it, your past tax returns that are delinquent and unfiled will need to be prepared and filed. When we have your IRS wage garnishment released, the IRS will give our tax pros a date that all unfiled tax returns must be filed. Your missing tax returns will be expeditiously prepared and filed by our tax return department.


When you have non-filed tax returns, you have essentially waived your rights. For instance, the IRS will not enter into an Installment Agreement (#IRSpaymentplan) with a delinquent taxpayer. If you have unfiled tax returns, the IRS will not allow you to settle with the IRS through the Offer in Compromise program (Fresh Start Initiative). You must become IRS compliant in order to enter into all Tax Relief Programs. It is in your best interest to have your delinquent tax returns prepared and filed as quickly as possible. 

If you have received an IRS Form 4549, you need to look at what the IRS proposes to change on your tax return. If you are a non-filer, the IRS has placed you in the highest tax bracket. The IRS has given you no deductions whatsoever. The IRS has piled on failure to file penalties along with significant interest because of your failure to file. These are the Tax Relief Options Available:

1. If you agree that the IRS is correct (they won't be but you could agree with them), you can sign the 4549 Form and return it to the address provided by the IRS. The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief does not recommend that course of action without speaking to us first.

2.If you do not agree with 4549 Form, you must write to the IRS and explain what you believe to be correct or incorrect and why. You must do this by the deadline stipulated in the letter accompanying the Form 4549. Be advised that the IRS may have already sent out an order to levy which will seize your paycheck, bank account, Social Security, Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Veteran's Pension.

3. If you do not understand the proposed changes made by the IRS you could call the IRS at the phone number provided to you in the letter. Be prepared to wait while you are on hold. If you get the IRS on the phone, you can ask them for an explanation. If you do not have the time to be on hold with the IRS, you could write a letter to them and ask for an explanation. Good luck with that idea as the IRS may have already sent out the levy (#IRSwagegarnishment).

4. Your final choice is to engage an experienced tax professional. This is actually your best course of action. A tax professional must be either a Tax Attorney, C.P.A. or what is called an Enrolled Agent (EA). At the very minimum, you should consult with a tax professional so that you can make an informed decision.
