Back Taxes: What You Can Do

November 18th

If you owe back taxes, a tax debt lawyer should be your first call. The IRS has collection powers greater than almost any other entity, and is likely to employ these powers to collect the back taxes you owe. These powers include but are not limited to wage garnishment, bank account freezes, and more. However, a tax lawyer can help you to find ways to stop or delay these collections.

Tax Debt Lawyer Can Help

A qualified tax debt lawyer knows a few tricks to help keep the IRS from exercising its muscle in the collection of your back taxes. The first piece of advice is to stay in communication. A big mistake many people make is not to respond to correspondence, either out of fear or anxiety of their inability to pay. However, to the IRS collector, silence is interpreted as non-compliance, and they are more likely to take action against someone who gives no response than someone who is in regular correspondence and being up front about their inability to pay back taxes under the current circumstances.

There are other compromises that a tax debt lawyer can help you reach with the IRS to pay your back taxes. In some cases you can negotiate payments on an installment plan, which offers to pay back the debt on a graduated basis. Another popular alternative is an offer in compromise, which reduces the amount of back taxes you owe but can be very difficult to negotiate with the IRS.

A tax debt lawyer can help you work through your financial woes, sorting out your back taxes and proposing the best solution to keeping the IRS from coming after your earnings.
