IRS Tax Relief - Tax Debt Help

Depending on your unique IRS tax problems and financial circumstances, the tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief can help you qualify for 1 of 3 outstanding IRS Tax Resolution Options (Fresh Start Program).

The Tax Debt Help - The Process

IRS tax problems start when a taxpayer receives a letter (#IRSnotice) from the IRS, and/or States, taxing authorities due to Unfiled & Unpaid Income Tax Returns, or Payroll Tax. This situation can be caused by many financial issues or a life event that overwhelms the taxpayer and they delay or ignore filing their tax returns thinking that things will soon get better. Should the tax problem persist, a taxpayer may find themselves with multiple years of unfiled tax returns and will not know how to correct the situation.

The initial IRS notice will be a reminder that you have not filed your tax return(s) or have unpaid taxes on your filed return(s). If you do not respond, the IRS enforcement letters will keep coming and will become evermore aggressive. Receiving Certified Letters (letters that require a signature for proof of delivery) alerts you that the IRS is moving quickly toward aggressive IRS Collection Enforcement tactics.

Should you continue to ignore IRS notices, the IRS will find you and levy you. The IRS will use their computers to find you. The IRS computer system is known as the Automated Collection System (ACS). You may have seen the initials "ACS" at the bottom of an IRS notice. That means the IRS notice is computer generated. Your bank accounts, wages and/or your assets are at risk of an IRS order to levy. You may have a Tax Lien filed on your real property without knowing it until you try to sell the property. If you have received a Certified Letter, you really need to seek professional tax help as soon as possible to avoid serious IRS Collection Actions (Bank Levies and Wage Garnishments). For more than a decade, the tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax relief has provided the nations taxpayers with valuable IRS tax debt help at a very affordable fee.


The IRS has three tax relief programs to help taxpayers with unfiled & unpaid taxes. To qualify for one of these tax relief options, the taxpayers must first get current on filing their tax returns. The IRS calls this "being compliant." Before you can resolve your IRS tax debt, the IRS will require that the last six (6) years of tax returns be filed. Our Tax Attorneys will work directly with you to get your unfiled tax returns filed and then work with you on the tax resolution program that is the best fit for your situation. Flat Fee Tax relief has always offered a free no-obligation consultation. During our confidential consultation, our tax pros will discuss your assets, income, and allowable expenses to help determine which of these tax relief programs you qualify for and which is the best relief option for you.

The Three IRS Tax Relief Programs are: 1. Installment Agreements

An IRS payment plan may be the best you can get. Having said that, never never ever into an IRS payment plan without speaking to our team first. An IRS Installment Agreement (IA) allows taxpayers to pay back their unpaid taxes in monthly payments over an agreed upon length of time. The amount of the monthly payment depends upon the tax amount due and the number of months required to pay back the amount due. Don't Overpay. It's possible to use the Statute of Limitations to your benefit. Don't try to outsmart the IRS on your own. That's a very bad idea, You can often avoid having a Tax Lien filed if you agree to have the monthly payments automatically withdrawn from your bank account. To qualify for an IA, you must be current on your tax return filings and remain current on future tax return filings and tax payments during the Installment Agreement period. 2. Currently Not Collectible (IRS Hardship)

First things first. A taxpayer does not need to be "destitute" to be placed into Currently not Collectible status. The Currently Not Collectible (CNC) program is for taxpayers in financial hardship situations to defer paying their taxes owed until their situations improve; for example, long-term unemployed, disabled, or fixed-income taxpayers could qualify for this program. Having a "financial hardship" means that you do not have any cash left over after paying your everyday expenses. After confirming their financial situation, the IRS will place their tax liability in an inactive status, which protects them from collection activity until the IRS determines that the taxpayer’s situation has improved and now have the ability to repay some or all of their tax amount owed. Being Currently not Collectible will usually last 18 to 24 months after which time it can be renewed. With this program, a federal tax lien will be filed, and the IRS will revisit their situation every few years but you won't pay and the Statute of Limitations may run out. 3. Offer In Compromise

This is our favorite and the very best Tax Relief Program. What could be better than settling your tax liability for what is known as "pennies on the dollar." An Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a settlement agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that will settle a taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed. Taxpayers who can fully pay the tax amount owed through an Installment Agreement or other means, generally will not qualify for an OIC (#IRSsettlement).

For obvious reasons not everyone does not quality for an Offer in Compromise. Every year, the IRS will receive approximately 80,000 requests to settle a tax debt. Per IRS statistics, the IRS will approve approximately 42% of these submissions. Most IRS rejections are due to taxpayers attempting to do their own Offer in Compromise. If you do qualify, an OIC can reduce your tax amount owed by tens of thousands of dollars. To quality for an OIC, the taxpayers must show the IRS that they do not have the income after allowable expenses and liquid assets to fully repay their taxes owed. This is a complex settlement process, normally taking 9-12 months before the OIC is in place. The tax professionals at Flat Fee Tax Relief have a 96% Offer in Compromise rate of success. Our very affordable fee is well worth it to have your IRS settlement done right from the very beginning. Our teams provide valuable IRS tax debt help from coast to coast as we are located in Clearwater, Florida, and San Diego, California.
