ADVANCE TAX RELIEF - TAX NEGOTIATION TIP

Don’t rely on logic: IRS decisions are not always made from common sense, or logic. Your way of thinking about a solution to a problem – options that would be successful in the private sector – do not apply to solving IRS problems.

The IRS process is primarily governed by their own internal rules and regulations.  This guidebook is called the Internal Revenue Manual (IRM). The IRM contains chapter after chapter, page after page, of IRS procedures on handling most every conceivable situation – from audits to collections, and from levies and seizures to tax court litigation.

Clearly, negotiating with the IRS is unlike other negotiations.  A unique set of rules (Internal Revenue Manual), practically unequalled power, and IRS employees with no financial risk in the outcome.  Knowing and applying the rules of engagement, understanding the mindset of the other side – the IRS side and recognizing how to work within the IRS’s power structure is key to success.

CAN THE IRS TAKE MY STUFF? - ADVANCE TAX RELIEF (800)790-8574

In the vast majority of cases, you will not lose any of your stuff to the IRS. Most clothing and personal household belongings are beyond the scope of the IRS collection power.



Here’s why:
Section 6334(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code allows you to keep all of your clothing.  Bear in mind that the tax code uses the words “necessary” in describing the clothing that is exempt from IRS collections, meaning that the IRS can technically take clothing that is not necessary, like designer shoes and handbags, etc.
Section 6334(a)(2) of the tax code protects your furniture and household effects up to $7,900 in value from the IRS.  The IRS is not taking your television, or your bed, or lawnmower.

The Internal Revenue Manual, at Section 5.17.3.4.7, Property Exempt from Levy, restates these exemptions in guidance to IRS employees.

It is important to remember these exemptions when completing IRS financial statements, like Form 433A. Claim the value of these everyday items as exempt.  And in an offer in compromise, make sure that these assets are not included in the value of the offer as they are off limits to the IRS – again, claim it as exempt.

WHAT IS AN IRS "HARDSHIP STATUS"? ADVANCE TAX RELIEF

If you cannot pay your delinquent taxes because of an economic hardship, the IRS can suspend collection efforts against you.  This does not mean your debt is forgiven; just that the IRS will defer collection and not take your wages or bank account.



Internal Revenue Service Policy Statement 5-71 permits hardship status on IRS accounts, as follows:

If there are limited assets or income but it is determined that levy action would create a hardship, the liability may be reported as currently not collectible. A hardship exists if the levy action prevents the taxpayer from meeting necessary living expenses. In each case a determination must be made as to whether the levy would result in actual hardship, as distinguished from mere inconvenience to the taxpayer.  If, after taking all steps in the collection process, it is determined that an account receivable is currently not collectible, it should be so reported in order to remove it from active inventory.

Internally within the IRS, hardship aka currently not collectible, is known as a “53” case, for the transaction code the IRS inputs into your account to indicate a suspension of collection activities.
The IRS can also settle a hardship case by submission of an offer in compromise rather than have it linger in the system.

In addition to being sent to the slammer for more than a decade, Brown was ordered to pay more than $4.5 million in restitution to the IRS.

HOW TO NEGOTIATE WITH AN IRS AUDITOR - ADVANCE TAX RELIEF

Despite IRS claims that auditors can’t negotiate. Give-and –take is part of the process.  An IRS Auditors job performance is based largely on how many cases closed – marked at “agreed”.

video


The Auditors wants you to consent to their findings and not appeal or go to Tax Court.  This gives you negotiating power. This means the auditor wants your signature so badly she will allow bogus business expenses or overlook unreported income.

Here is one negotiating strategy.

DO NOT JUST SIT THERE: Keep asking the auditor about disallowances she is considering as the audit progresses or they won’t tell you what’s on their mind so you can be in the dark until you get the examination report.

Don’t let an auditor take the easy way out – make her face and justify her actions.  In turn, you can argue your position right there and then. If she plans to make an adjustment because you didn’t produce records, you can ask for time to find or reconstruct the documents.

For Example:  The IRS Auditors tells Joseph an SEO consultant, that he is disallowing his deductions for the theft of his computer.  Joseph’s reason is that there is no documentation for the loss. John should instead get a police report for the Auditor.

NOTE: Keep in mind, the difference between arguing and negotiating.  Negotiating is the art of meeting in the middle.  For example:  Let’s say you lost all your paperwork for a $600 office supply deduction. The auditor proposes to disallow 100% of the deduction.

You can negotiate like “Since I made a profit and maintained an office, I must have bought office supplies. I lost my receipts, but my reconstruction of expenses is reasonable. I should be allowed at least 50%."

3 WAYS TO SETTLE OR RESOLVE YOUR IRS TAX PROBLEMS - ADVANCE TAX RELIEF

1) THE OFFER IN COMPROMISE PROGRAM OR TAX DEBT FORGIVENESS PROGRAM AS SOME PEOPLE MAY CALL IT
This is a program where you can settle your tax debts for less than what you owe. The program will requires making a lump sum or short term payment plan to pay off the IRS at a reduced dollar amount.



If you owe the IRS more than you can afford to pay, this could be the plan for you. Essentially, an Offer in Compromise gives you the opportunity to pay a small amount as a full and final payment. If you qualify for the Offer in Compromise program, you can save thousands of dollars in taxes, penalties and interest.

2) THE CURRENTLY NON COLLECTIBLE PROGRAM.
 A program where the IRS agrees not to collect on the tax debt for a period of time. Currently Not Collectible means that a taxpayer has no ability to pay his or her tax debts. The IRS can declare a taxpayer “currently not collectible,” after the IRS receives evidence that a taxpayer has no ability to pay. This is a useful tool because you can file for an appeal to stop an IRS levy, lien, seizure or the denial or termination of an installment agreement. The IRS appeal gives you the opportunity to explain how you think the situation could be solved without the IRS levy or seizure.

3. THE INNOCENT SPOUSE RELIEF PROGRAM.
 If you happen to inherit your spouse’s IRS tax problems, you have an escape route. If you can prove that your circumstances fit within the IRS guidelines for innocent spouse tax relief, you may not be subject to the taxes caused by your spouse or ex-spouse.
