Unfiled Tax Returns – Failure to File

Not filing your taxes could happen for a myriad of reasons or excuses. The most important first step is to get up to date (IRS compliant) and file your back returns.

You must be compliant which means the last six (6) years of tax returns are properly filed. The tax lawyers at Flat Fee Tax Relief will work with the IRS on your behalf to resolve any past tax debt, file your back taxes and do all we can to minimize your back tax debt and any penalties associated with your failure to file your tax returns.

Should the IRS create a tax debt via a Substitute for Return (SFR), the IRS will have the authority to enforce collection on an inflated tax debt. What does that mean to you? Well, you will, most likely, face a tax levy (wages, paycheck) and/or an IRS levy on bank accounts. To stop a tax levy on your wages and an IRS levy, you will have to, FILE YOUR MISSING TAX RETURNS.

The IRS will not allow you to settle tax debt like an Offer in Compromise or Installment Agreement until your back taxes are filed. You can’t even get yourself into an Installment Agreement if you have unfiled tax returns.

Once the missing tax returns are prepared and filed, our tax lawyers can work with the IRS to arrange alternate tax settlement methods if you are unable to pay the balance due.

IRS Levy – Tax Levy Wage Garnishment

A Tax Levy (IRS Garnishment – Wage Garnishment) is one of the seizure methods the IRS will use to collect a tax debt. If the Agency sends a tax levy order to your employer the IRS will demand that your employer comply and send a major portion of your wages to the IRS.

If your wages have been levied and garnished, contact our Los Angeles IRS specialists immediately. Our tax attorneys routinely have an IRS levy stopped and released in one day. A tax attorney will contact the IRS immediately to work out an arrangement to settle your debt and have the IRS levy released and removed.

Offer in Compromise – IRS Settlement

Offer in Compromise – Not everyone will qualify and be eligible for an Offer in Compromise (OIC), but many taxpayers will. More than you may think.

An Offer in Compromise is a settlement agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS, that will greatly reduce a tax debt. Our experienced tax lawyers have experience negotiating an Offer in Compromise with the IRS. Contact us today so we can determine if your situation qualifies for this special fresh start program. Our tax attorneys have a 96% Offer in Compromise approval rate.

Installment agreement – When a taxpayer cannot afford to pay their tax debt immediately, we can help you negotiate an IRS repayment plan that is the lowest amount possible. This type of payment plan is great for those who cannot afford a lump sum payment to cover their tax debt.

Currently Not Collectible – When your account is placed into a Currently Not Collectible status, that means that your account is removed from the IRS’ active collection status. Everyone in Currently not Collectible status will not make payments on their tax debt. Furthermore, the time available to the IRS continues to run out (Statute of Limitations). There are very strict guidelines for people who qualify for this status. Contact us today so we can help you determine if you qualify.

Penalty and Interest – We are experienced at representing clients before the IRS to negotiate lower penalties or interest payments on back taxes. Sometimes it is possible to have the penalties and interest completely removed, depending on the situation.
