            There are a lot of big companies out there with a lot of powerful marketing and fancy slogans, designed to get you to “sign up with them.” They’ve got salespeople, marketing budgets, and TV ads, and the odds are that your initial consultation will be with a salesperson who you will never talk to again after you hire the company.

            I have been helping taxpayers across the country get rid of their tax problem for years. I get levies lifted, I get liens removed and I make settlements with the IRS.


            If you have an urgent problem like a wage garnishment or a bank levy, you can get relief almost immediately, a day or two or maybe a week. In most cases, you would have to give the IRS financial information to show them that it is a hardship or they would put you into some kind of a payment plan based on that financial information. There are people who get a wage levy lifted on their own. Most folks need professional help. We have done it for folks all across the country and if this is your problem, the first step would be to gather financial information, so that you can show the IRS your average monthly income and expenses. This is the starting point to get them to lift your wage levy.

            If you are not immediately under the gun with the IRS but you are just fed up with it, and you want to get rid of the problem once and for all, there is a process to solve your IRS problem and it is one I have been using for years. It is as follows:

Step 1).           I get all of the transcripts from the IRS pertaining to you. The IRS keeps a file on every taxpayer. If you know what you are doing, you can get a copy of that file. It gives me all kinds of information that helps me, to help you. Based on the information I find there, I can tell you when the Statue of Limitations expires on your tax debt. I can tell you if and when you can eliminate your tax debt by filing bankruptcy. I can determine how much of your tax debt is penalties (penalties can, and often are, eliminated-the IRS uses the term Penalty Abatement).

Step 2).           I need financial information from you. I need to know what your assets are, and what your typical monthly income and expenses are. I am not being nosy, this is the information the IRS will want. I want to get it before they do.

Step 3).           I provide you with a detailed analysis of your situation and most importantly, ways to solve the problem and get rid of the IRS. Think of it as a step by step plan to eliminating your tax problem forever. There are at least nine different ways to help a taxpayer, but nobody can use all nine. The good news is everybody can benefit from one or more of those solutions.

Step 4).           I go over the options with you and then we take action and move forward on the best solution for you. For some people the best solution is to settle their tax debt for less than they owe. This is known as an Offer in Compromise (the IRS recently-May 23, 2012-issued new ruling making settlements easier to get).

            For other people the best solution is to eliminate all of their penalties. For still others, a bankruptcy will discharge all or some of their taxes. Here is another option most people don’t know about; depending on your financial situation, you may be able to do something called a Partial Pay Installment Agreement, which also allows you to pay less than what you owe.

            If you owe payroll taxes, there are other options that can help you as well. The point is, there are solutions within reach. You just have to decide you are going to get it done and find someone you can trust.
