Learning Center

IRS debt settlement is the process in which a taxpayer, either an individual or a business who owes the federal government back taxes, is able to settle their debt. There are four main tax settlement plans that the IRS offers taxpayers; installment agreements, offer in compromise, currently not-collectible status and paying the debt in full.

When a taxpayer owes IRS debt, the federal government will add penalties and interest to the debt until it is paid off. The fastest way to handle IRS debt is to pay it in full, however some taxpayers cannot afford to pay the full amount of their back taxes. The IRS debt settlement program at Community Tax involves a two-step program in which our analysts help you get the debt resolved.

An IRS Offer in Compromise is a tax resolution program offered by the IRS for taxpayers who owe back taxes. If a taxpayer qualifies and the IRS accepts the Offer in Compromise, the taxpayer will be able to pay back the debt for a fraction of the total amount owed. This amount is determined by using financial information submitted to the IRS to calculate the ”Reasonable Collection Potential” of the taxpayer.

Should a taxpayer qualify for an Offer in Compromise, the IRS will require them to pay back the agreed upon amount within six months in full, or else the offer will expire and the full debt will be owed. Filing an Offer in Compromise proposal can be complex, and using the assistance of a tax resolution company like Community Tax can greatly improve a taxpayer's likelihood of having their offer accepted.

Taxpayers who are have wage garnishment problems owe the IRS back taxes and have ignored multiple notices from the federal government to enter into a tax resolution program to resolve their issues. An IRS levy is the collection of tax debts from a delinquent taxpayer and can include wage garnishment, bank account garnishment, and even seizure of assets like homes and vehicles.

Certain taxpayers may be able to have their wage garnishment lifted if their levy has just begun and if they can show that the IRS is causing undue financial hardship by collecting. Some taxpayers can avoid wage garnishment by entering into a tax resolution program. Contacting a tax company like Community Tax can help clarify your options if you need to stop wage garnishment.

Taxpayers who need tax lien help have received notice from the IRS that a lien has been placed on their assets. These assets could be bank accounts, income, or assets. The IRS can collect an owed debt from a taxpayer by levying them after a period of 30 days has passed after a lien is placed.

To have a lien lifted, a taxpayer must first pay back the IRS debt, but in rare cases, may be able to have it lifted if they can enter a tax resolution plan and show that the lien is hurting their ability to pay back their tax debt. A tax company can assist you with understanding how to get tax lien help. Tax lien notice should not be ignored. Failing to handle an IRS lien notice will mean the inevitable seizure of homes, assets, bank accounts and even wage garnishment.

Taxpayers who fail to pay their income taxes on time must accept the consequences of having tax penalties and interest added to the amount they owed. The IRS adds half of a percent of the total tax every month that the debt goes unpaid. Should this percentage added reach 25%, the IRS will not add any more to the debt amount. Similarly, the interest added to the debt is half of a percent of the total amount due, but the interest continues until the debt is paid back.

Waiting to pay back income tax debts or get help with tax resolution can mean that a taxpayer will face larger amounts of money that they owe because of the tax penalties and interest. Entering into a tax resolution program can halt tax penalties from being added, but will not stop interest from accruing. The best way to resolve tax penalties and interest is to pay the full amount of the tax debt owed to the IRS.

Taxpayers who enlist the help of Community Tax will have the help of a team of tax professionals in preventing levy and seizure of their assets. If the IRS has sent notices to levy, there is very little time to wait before they begin seizing bank accounts, assets and even paychecks. Taxpayers who owe a tax debt cannot rely on the courts to delay any type of seizure the way some debtors can with other creditors. The IRS has the power to begin seizing assets after the allotted amount of time has passed after notice of their intent to levy.

Levy and seizure is the last thing that takes place when a taxpayer learns they owe the IRS back taxes. The IRS will send many notices to the taxpayer including a notice of tax debt, a notice about placing a lien on them and a notice of intent to levy. Individuals or businesses that ignore these warnings and take no steps to enter into a tax resolution program like an installment agreement will end up being levied.

Businesses that owe back payroll tax will be pursued aggressively by IRS collections. The best solution for these businesses is to solve these issues as quickly as possible. Failing to take action towards a tax resolution can mean the IRS will levy the amount owed through seizure or garnishment. Having a business's bank accounts or accounts receivable garnished can mean the end of operation for some businesses.

Contacting a tax resolution company for assistance with negotiating for an affordable payroll tax payment plan can mean the difference between a business closing and a business continuing operation. Tax professionals at Community Tax can help you complete IRS Form 433-B and determine the ideal way to pay back the tax debt. They may also be able to negotiate for another type of tax resolution plan should your business qualify for other programs.

Every year, about 2% of the population is audited by the IRS. These audits are chosen via random selection, mismatching information received by the IRS that indicates discrepancies with a taxpayer's income tax returns, or because of other circumstances that require the need for an audit. When the IRS audits and individual, they may do so through mail or by sending an agent to a taxpayer's home. In some cases, the IRS only requires the taxpayer to conduct an interview at an IRS field office.

Taxpayers have a right to hire a tax professional to represent them before the IRS. The use of a company like Community Tax can greatly improve a taxpayer's odds of having the audit process go smoothly and no surprises to cause problems. Experienced tax professionals can help taxpayers file unfiled income tax returns and find the necessary financial paperwork to present to the IRS to ensure that the audit does not continue for too long.

If you filed a 2015 income tax extension before the April 15th deadline this year, your extension deadline is on October 15th, 2014. The extension does not extend the due date to pay the IRS your owed taxes. If you owe income tax to the federal government, pay the amount due to avoid interest and possible penalties from non-payment.

The IRS offers tax resolution programs for these taxpayers as a way to ensure that the debt is collected and also relieve any hardship that the tax debt will cause taxpayers who have extremely hard financial circumstances. There are three general types of tax resolution, the offer in compromise, installment agreements and currently non-collectible status.

Our Process

Step 1: Investigation

Our Investigation process begins by filing a Tax Authorization Information Form 8821 with the IRS and/or the appropriate form for the State Taxing authority on your behalf in order to obtain a complete record of your account. Your dedicated practitioner will then make a phone call to the dedicated priority practitioner services line in order to determine additional important information regarding your tax liabilities. At the same time, our investigative team will analyze your financials and compare them to the IRS or applicable state's allowable standards in order to determine the best course of action given your specific situation. Upon completion of our investigation, you will be contacted with our findings, and be given your options with regards to resolving your tax issues once and for all.

Step 2: Tax Prep & Resolution

The resolution phase of our process begins by gathering more in depth financial information and supporting documentation in order to prepare an in depth proposal for submission to the IRS and/or State. Many resolutions require significant follow up, and contact with the IRS and/or State. The length of time to obtain a resolution of your tax liabilities can last anywhere from 1 week to as long as one year, and depends on the program for which you qualify for. Upon completion of the resolution, we will contact you to explain the specific details of your resolution, and give you any important information necessary to ensure that this problem doesn't reoccur. Community Tax will also remain on file as Power of Attorney to guarantee that there are no complications. During the course of our tax resolution program and beyond, you may get in touch with our tax professionals at any time with questions, concerns or changes you may have to make.

This is Blanca Rodriguez. I was a little skeptical at first because the business was out of state. CTR is in Chicago and I live in California. However, your customer service was great and they always returned my calls on time with answers to my questions. They settled ten years of tax returns for less than pennies on the dollar. I'm a true believer.
