Income Tax Advocate
When individuals encounter tax problems with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), they are often unsure on how to resolve these problems with the agency. In part, this uncertainty is sometimes attributed to an unfavorable opinion regarding the IRS. This opinion causes many people to become suspicious of the IRS. While the IRS may seem like an overpowering or intimidating agency, the IRS is often willing to work with people who show a desire to resolve their tax problems. A way to ensure that individuals receive a satisfactory resolution to their tax problems is for them to retain help from an IRS tax advocate. Our IRS taxpayer advocates have the needed experience to design fair and reasonable plans to submit to the IRS. This helps individuals find closure to their current tax problems and results in an acceptable solution for them and the IRS.
Negotiating with the IRS
The IRS has many rules and regulations, policies and processes to follow. Therefore, taxpayers often find themselves approaching unfamiliar territory when they think about having to enter into negotiations with the IRS. In addition, the complexity of U.S. tax codes and laws provides further obstacles for those who have to negotiate with the IRS. If individuals do not have an in-depth understanding of all the complexities, it may become too challenging to adequately negotiate with the agency. Individuals who seek out help from a tax professional gain an IRS tax advocate who has the skills needed to successfully negotiate with the IRS. Taxpayers, who have the desire to find an agreeable resolution to their problems, should contact our income tax lawyers for assistance.

Our tax attorneys do not recommend that people attempt to negotiate with the IRS before obtaining legal representation. Individuals will find it beneficial to have the support of an IRS tax advocate who has the ability to negotiate with the IRS on their behalves. We encourage individuals to contact us if they have any tax-related questions or if they would like to speak to one of tax lawyers.
There are many options available to individuals that may want to settle their tax problems. Available options include payment plans, Offer in Compromise and Non-Collectible Status. While these are available options, individuals may not qualify for all of them because there are stipulations attached to all these methods. For example, an individual’s financial record many make them ineligible for some of these options. That is why IRS tax advocates are available to evaluate financial records. They help people determine which option suits their situation. We believe that the pursued settlement option should be the one that provides the most benefit to an individual. Having our tax attorneys represent individuals will give people that invaluable advice.
Avoiding Enforced Compliance Measures
Many factors cause people to have delinquent tax bills. They may think that they do not owe the amount of their current tax liability or they lack the financial resources needed to clear the balance owed with the IRS. No matter the reason for having outstanding tax debt, we advise individuals to take proactive steps to settle their tax debt in a timely way. Resolving tax debt as soon as possible may help taxpayers avoid enforced compliance measures by the IRS.
The IRS uses enforced compliance in an attempt to collect outstanding tax liabilities. Methods used may include wage garnishments, bank levies and civil or criminal prosecution. If the IRS takes any of these enforced compliance actions, that has the potential to cause financial hardship. Our income tax lawyers help people take the necessary steps to voluntarily comply with the IRS to settle payment of overdue taxes. They know that voluntary compliance is the most beneficial to taxpayers.
Making Payments on an IRS Tax Debt
The IRS does not always insist that people pay their overdue tax bill in one lump sum. This provides a sense of relief to many. The IRS knows that individuals do not always have the required funds to settle their tax debt in one payment. Because of this, the agency sometimes lets people pay their outstanding tax liabilities by using installment payments. In some situations, the IRS recognizes that its attempt to collect debt from certain individuals will result in nothing. If the agency concludes this, it may decide to stop collection efforts until a taxpayer’s financial situation changes or the statute of limitations for collections expires. To make the most-informed decision, we suggest that individuals consult with an IRS taxpayer advocate to determine what payment method fits their needs. In addition, an IRS tax advocate will help people establish a payment plan with the IRS.
