HOW TO DEAL WITH THE IRS - ADVICE

When you do have tax problems and are seeking a tax resolution, your odds of success will be heavily influenced by how well you communicate with the IRS and its employees or agents.

There are a number of things you can do to help things go smoothly when dealing with IRS representatives:

• Remain friendly. Being confrontational will make the IRS agent less likely to work with you on a tax resolution or be helpful. Remember that the IRS holds all of the power in this situation; you cannot scare or coerce them into taking your side




• Be patient. The IRS can be very repetitive and detail-oriented which can become tiresome and frustrating to many people. But, it is a necessary part of the tax resolution process; complaining will not help your case


• If you have moved, notify the IRS by filling out their change-of-address form (IRS Form 8822). This will ensure that you get important notices on time and help keep you from missing deadlines.


• Always respond to notices or letters from the IRS. Respond promptly but only after you are certain you understand what the letter means and what is being asked for

• Ask for the name and ID number of any IRS employee who calls you. To be safe it is best to check and make sure that you are actually dealing with a real IRS employee and not give any detailed information until you confirm that the call is legitimate


• Stay calm. It is understandable that you might be fearful or nervous when facing the IRS even if you have done nothing wrong. However, such nervousness may give the impression that you actually do have something to hide. Proper guidance through the tax resolution process is essential
Of course, considering the stakes involved, this is much easier said than done. No matter what you do you will always be at a disadvantage when dealing with the IRS. Most taxpayers have little or no experience in handling tax problems, tax resolution, and the IRS collection process. However, the IRS agents you will be facing are the absolute experts when it comes to dealing with taxpayers like yourself. It is their job. It is what they do every single day of their working lives. And, while most people know very little about the myriad of details and nuances of the tax code the IRS knows every rule and every tool they can use against you. The IRS literally knows every trick in the book because it is their book, they wrote it.

Past Due Unfiled Tax Returns – ADVANCE TAX RELIEF LLC

We find that taxpayers do not file tax returns for one or more years for various reasons and the problem can become overwhelming. Missing all or a portion of their records, personal hardship and/or neglect are one of many reasons people fall behind in filing their taxes. Fortunately, there are ways to approach the problem of unfiled returns.

ADVANCE TAX RELIEF LLC
(800)790-8574
BBB A+ Accredited Business

The IRS maintains a file going back numerous years of all W2s, 1099s and 1098s (mortgage interest paid) filed in the name of individual taxpayers. Optima Tax Relief can determine certain facts from Master File Transcripts, available for those years where the IRS has prepared a Substitute Return. These ‘records of account’ provide Adjusted Gross Income, Taxable Income, Tax, Number of Exemptions, Filing Status and Self Employment Tax. When we take on this kind of case, we will assist in re-filing your returns and our negotiations will be based on our more favorable returns for your benefit.


Advance Tax Relief can prepare past returns using various substitute sources when there are missing records. Those returns should be filed as soon as possible in order to avoid accumulated compounding interest. Also, it should be noted that if returns have not been filed in the most recent three tax years, those returns should be prepared immediately in order to claim any refunds that may be due.

IRS TAX DEBT FORGIVENESS - ADVANCE TAX RELIEF

What Is A Tax Settlement?

A tax settlement is an arrangement which is acceptable to the IRS or state taxing authorities that allows a taxpayer to retire an outstanding tax debt for less than the original amount owed.  Taxation authorities sometimes allow this type of tax settlement when extenuating circumstances exist that would prevent the taxpayer from honoring the full debt.
ADVANCE TAX RELIEF LLC
(800)790-8574
BBB A+ Accredited Business

 While not every situation is appropriate for engaging in a tax settlement process, individuals who owe taxes often find that tax authorities are willing to explore the individual situation to determine if a tax settlement is possible.  This is typically based on current tax regulations and the circumstances of the taxpayer.

Benefits of an IRS Settlement

There are several benefits associated with attempting to negotiate a tax settlement.
  • Pay Less Now – The most obvious is that the taxpayer ultimately pays a considerably lower amount of money to the tax authority.  Assuming that the situation of the applicant meets certain qualifications, a tax settlement amount may be determined and presented within a very short period of time. Once the balance is paid based on a mutually agreement, the account is considered settled-in-full, meaning that the taxpayer is no longer subject to late fees and other types of penalties that would be incurred otherwise.
  • Avoid Liens and Garnishments – Another benefit of a tax settlement is that the taxpayer avoids the placement of tax liens on a home or business, a bank levy on one or more available accounts, or the implementation of a wage garnishment on his or her paycheck.

How Does Tax Settlement Work?

The IRS will allow a taxpayer to either negotiate a tax settlement for less than the total amount owed or come to an agreement on another method for the IRS to collect taxes owed over time. For either of these situations the taxpayer must meet the qualifications of one of the tax settlement programs set forth by the IRS. The taxpayer will first have to determine which type of tax settlement they would like to apply for and then submit the appropriate forms to the IRS for review before making a decision. A taxpayer can either fill out the information themselves or they can have a designated tax professional make the filing on their behalf.
Typically, the negotiation of the tax settlement remains between the individual and the IRS or tax authority involved, and may include a third party if the taxpayer seeks professional tax settlement assistance. Firms that specialize in tax resolution can, surprisingly, also help to lower the costs to the individual, since there is typically a very positive outcome to seeking the assistance of a tax relief professional.
In many instances, a tax settlement calls for paying off the entire tax settlement amount within a specified period of time.  During that time frame, no late taxes or tax interest is assessed on the balance of the tax settlement. Taxpayers may choose to pay off the tax settlement amount in one lump sum.  If this is not possible, the IRS or tax authorities will set up a schedule of payments that are within the means of the taxpayer, with the last payment coinciding with the final date attached to the tax settlement offer. Once a settlement has been reached by both parties, the taxpayer will be considered good standing with the IRS for the tax year/years that the settlement covered (unless the taxpayer defaults or doesn’t hold up to all the terms of the agreement).

Who Is Eligible for Tax Settlement?

The IRS offers settlements to taxpayers that are struggling with their tax debts or have valid reasons to abate their penalties. Not everyone is eligible for tax settlement. The main factor the IRS takes into consideration when determining if the taxpayer will qualify for a tax settlement is their financial situation. If the taxpayer is undergoing financial hardship, it’s usually a good indicator to the IRS that a settlement might be a good option.
At the same rate, should the IRS or tax authority involved determine that the individual does have sufficient income to pay off the entire balance due over time, the tax settlement request may be rejected and instead, the IRS or tax authority will offer to accept monthly payments of a certain amount until the tax debt is paid off.

IRS WANT TO COME TO YOUR HOME? Advice!

An IRS auditor who wants to come to your home or business often signifies a very significant problem. If they are asking to come into your home or workplace it is most likely to take a visual inventory of your assets and belongings. They may be looking for expensive art work, luxury furniture, fancy cars, expensive technical or computing equipment, or anything that would significantly inflate your net worth beyond what can reasonably be expected for your historical reported income. They may provide a cover story of “wanting to measure your home office” if you took home office deductions, but do not believe their claims. There are other means you can use to prove the information they are seeking without opening your doors to a wholesale audit of your belongings.

What if My Books and Records Are a Mess?
If the IRS agent decides that your books and records are in such a state that it is impossible for the audit to proceed, some tax payers might mistakenly consider this a good thing. Unfortunately a situation like this is only likely to create significant problems for the taxpayer  and set up an uphill battle. Rather than reconstructing your records, the agent will simply assess you on any and all income that was deposited into your bank account. Next, they will disallow all expense that you claimed as non-provable. In any case, this will significantly increase the amount of taxable income you have and result in a much larger tax bill. If you wish to overturn this determination, the taxpayer must prove that stated expenses are allowable and present a set of books that can withstand significant audit scrutiny.
If the taxpayer wishes to fight the determination, reconstructive accounting by a financial professional is typically necessary. An amended tax return filing may even be necessary if the difference between the original and new return is significant. In any case, the burden of proof is always on the taxpayer. In many cases, only a reputable and experienced team of tax professionals can satisfy an auditor that whatever mess existed with the original accounting that caused the original return to be misstated, has been corrected in the revised accounting, and that ultimately the revised return position is the correct position.

HAVE NOT A TAX RETURN IN YEARS? ALL YOU NEED IS 6 YEARS TO GET CURRENT – IN MOST CASES

In most cases, the IRS will require the past six years of unfiled tax returns for an account to be considered current.  This is a written directive of the IRS, found in IRS Policy Statement 5-133, “Delinquent Returns – Enforcement of Filing Requirements”.
ADVANCE TAX RELIEF LLC
Call (800)790-8574

BBB A+ Accredited Business
If the unfiled returns have a balance due, the amount you owe will double every five years from the interest and penalties charged by the IRS (more about the time limitations to collect here.  Since IRS billing notices will start after the returns are filed, an early financial analysis is always recommended to determine the collection approach (offer in compromise? bankruptcy? installment agreement?).  You will receive refunds, but only for returns that were to be filed within the last three years.
Worried businessman
Exceptions to the six year rule may apply in cases involving a prior history of noncompliance, false statements, existence of income from illegal sources, or the class or industry the taxpayer is in (a physician with advanced education may be held to a higher standards of awareness).  These cases could involve criminal elements and must be handled very delicately, although the vast majority of non-filing cases are civil matters, not criminal.

IRS AUDITS - DONT AGREE? YOU CAN APPEALS!

IRS audits can leave your stomach in a knot and your head in your hands, often because you feel innocent of the changes the IRS is proposing to your tax return.

ADVANCE TAX RELIEF
www.advancetaxrelief.com
(800)790-8574

Notice I said proposing. An IRS audit is not simultaneously the beginning and end of your defense, with the auditor playing the role of judge and jury.  An auditor’s report is a proposal of what he (and probably his manager) thinks the changes should be.  Auditors are sometimes right and sometimes wrong in their analysis of the law and interpretation of facts.



If you disagree with the auditor, you do not have to stop everything and accept what the auditor is proposing (there is that word again).  You have rights.
Those rights include having an IRS appeals officer review the auditor’s findings, and, if that is unsuccessful, to have an independent Tax Court judge do the same.

In other words, the audit is the first step in what can be a three-step process  (Audit, Appeal, Tax Court).  The goal, of course, is to resolve it with the auditor and get it right the first time, but if an agreement cannot be reached, it is important to know where to turn next.

After the audit is over, the IRS will send what is called an Examination Report.   The report will detail the auditor’s findings, the changes proposed to your tax return, and the amount proposed to be owed.  If you disagree, you have the option, within 30 days, to file an appeal with the IRS, disputing the auditor’s findings.  The appeal should be filed in writing, with proof of mailing, and timely sent back to the IRS auditor handling your case. Your case will then be sent to an IRS appeals officer to listen and review why the audit report is incorrect. The appeals officer can erase incorrect findings.

If you do not respond to the Examination Report, you have another chance.  The IRS will send another notice, this time called a Notice of Deficiency, to you.  The Notice of Deficiency, in many ways, is like the Examination Report – containing the changes the IRS is proposing to your return.   However, at this point, rather than filing an appeal to meet with an IRS appeals officer, your appeal rights are now with the U.S. Tax Court.  Within 90 days after the Notice of Deficiency was sent, you have the right to file a complaint (known as a “petition” in the world of technical tax talk) to the Tax Court, explaining why you disagree.  The Tax Court will set your case for trial.  The Tax Court is not affiliated with the IRS.

The Notice of Deficiency is the last notice you will receive from the IRS about the audit.  If you do not go to Tax Court in 90 days, the audit will become final, and the IRS will put the changes on its books, make it final, and start collecting from you.  As the audit is not final while you are in appeals or Tax Court (still in a proposed status), there is no collection during that time.
Two more items to note in appealing IRS audits:  Whether you first file to appeals or Tax Court, you are not leaving either at the alter.

If you go to appeals first, you still have the right of Tax Court review if you do not reach agreement with the IRS appeals officer.  (The filing of the appeal simply delays the sending of the Notice of Deficiency.  That is the last act the IRS takes before an unagreed exam becomes final.)

If you go to Tax Court first and bypass appeals, the IRS will send your case to an IRS appeals officer to try and settle the case while it is pending and without trial.
Either way, you have a meeting with an appeals officer and the right to Tax Court.

Regardless of how you get there, the goal of the appeals officer is to settle the case based on how a Tax Court judge would interpret your evidence and apply it to the tax laws.  An IRS auditor usually has a narrow vision, and does not consider how the Tax Court would interpret your case, or your evidence.  This is the job of an appeals officer and the Tax Court.  Either way, if you disagree with an IRS audit, make sure you exercise your appeal rights and expand and broaden your options for successful resolution.
