Tax Debt Relief in the USA
US tax laws are very strict. However, there are several options for people who owe more in tax debts than they can afford to pay.
Some examples include:
- Payment plans
- An offer in compromise
- A brief delay
- A reduction in penalties
- Declaration of bankruptcy
It is possible for the IRS to temporarily suspend collection efforts if a taxpayer is experiencing financial difficulties. However, this is not automatic. Taxpayers need to contact the IRS and agree on suitable relief with them. A failure to resolve tax debt can result in penalties, interest charges, property seizure, or garnishment of wages.
If you are experiencing tax debt problems, you should act fast and look into these relief options. The best way to fully understand your options and make wise decisions is to receive professional tax guidance from an experienced and qualified tax lawyer.
How a Tax Lawyer Can Assist You With Your Tax Debt
Whether you owe back taxes or the IRS miscalculated your tax liability, a tax attorney from our firm can assist you. Our team of tax lawyers can help you with the following:
Establish a Payment Plan
The IRS offers installment agreements allowing monthly payments for those unable to pay immediately. Our team can assist you in setting up a payment plan tailored to your financial situation, ensuring that you can pay off your taxes in manageable installments. We can also offer advice on managing your finances to prevent future tax issues.
Abatement of Penalties
Penalties can be waived if you tried to comply with the law but could not meet your tax obligations due to circumstances beyond your control.
You can rely on our team for assistance in filing your IRS abatement form. We can gather the necessary documents and prepare a persuasive argument for you. We can also assist you in negotiating with the IRS to reach a mutually beneficial agreement.
Submission of Back Tax Returns
We can assist you with filing your tax return if your previous year’s return has not yet been completed. We can also review your tax return and advise on any missed deductions or tax credits.

Wage Garnishment and Levy Discharge
Overdue taxes can result in the IRS levying your bank account or deducting money from your paycheck, which can be a distressing experience. To prove you’re eligible for a levy or garnishment discharge, you have to show that the charge is causing financial hardship, such as being unable to pay for housing, clothing, or food. Financial hardship can include medical bills, credit card debt, and student loan repayment.
Our team of tax attorneys can help you determine whether you are eligible for discharge, prepare the necessary paperwork, and negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.
Offer in Compromise
If you cannot pay your full tax debt, or if doing so causes a financial hardship, an offer in compromise might be a good option. An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the total amount you owe. You can submit an offer based on the equity in your assets, your income, and your expenses. The IRS will review the offer and may accept it, reject it, or accept it with modifications.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, we can help you decide if an offer in compromise is the best solution for your tax debt. We can then prepare an offer that the IRS will most likely accept.
Assistance with Tax Audits
Tax audits are conducted to determine if taxes are reported correctly on the taxpayer’s books and records. Tax audits can be complex and time-consuming and may require the assistance of a professional tax advisor. An IRS attorney can protect your rights during the audit and ensure that your rights are protected.
Currently Not Collectible
Currently Not Collectible (CNC) status may be assigned to your account if you cannot meet both your tax obligations and your basic living expenses.
You may qualify for CNC status if you are unemployed, have filed for bankruptcy, or have a low income. It is essential to speak with an attorney or tax professional about whether you qualify for CNC status and how you can prove it.
The Creation of a Tax Debt Relief Strategy
When dealing with an IRS tax debt, a lawyer is invaluable, especially in more complicated situations.
To accomplish this, we apply our experience with tax debt relief to the facts. Sometimes, it is necessary to file Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 to ensure you get the tax relief you need.
We will work closely with you to develop a plan tailored to your individual needs and budget. We will also review your options and advise you on the best course of action. Finally, we will handle all the paperwork and negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.
