“People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women”. If you are the complainant having tax disputes with the IRS, tax professionals like experienced Enrolled Agents (EAs), Certified Public Accountant (CPAs), and tax attorneys can help you reach a tax resolution. Tax resolution encompasses a wide variety of settlements which includes IRS audits, Federal Tax Liens (IRS Liens), bank levies or wage garnishments, IRS penalty abatement, innocent spouse defense, bankruptcy discharge analysis, Offer In Compromise, un-filed or delinquent tax returns, and IRS collection statute of limitation analysis.
Internal Revenue Service tax issues can be resolved even if you owe hefty sums, and even if you haven't filed your taxes in years. If the problem is blown out of proportion, the IRS may file a federal tax lien, levy your bank account and wages, confiscate and sell your car, home or business. Reaching a tax resolution with the IRS can avert such catastrophic consequences. In some cases, you can reach a tax resolution and settle for far less than the amount you owe. This is known as an Offer in Compromise. An offer in compromise is a tax resolution settlement of a delinquent tax account for less than the original amount owed. However, you will not get such an Offer approved without specialized assistance. As per the data available, in the year 2004 only sixteen percent of Offers were actually accepted. Thus, it is advisable to seek services of professionals (like EAs, CPAs or tax attorneys) specializing in solving tax problems or negotiating a tax resolution. You should get in touch with these professionals if you are involved in tax disputes like un-filed returns, missing records, threat of levy, or, if you need a tax resolution like Installment Agreement or an Offer in Compromise, or want to be declared Currently Not Collectible.
For taxpayers, who are not able to reach a tax resolution immediately, an installment agreement can be a reasonable payment alternative. Installment agreements permit the full payment of the tax debt in smaller, more manageable amounts for the taxpayer. Currently Not Collectible is another tax resolution strategy, which implies that an individual has no ability to repay his or her tax debts. The Internal Revenue Service can affirm a person as "currently not collectible" after the IRS receives concrete substantiation that the individual has no capacity to pay. Once the IRS proclaims an individual as "currently not collectible", the IRS discontinues its recovery or collection activities, including levies and garnishments. However, the IRS sends an annual statement to that taxpayer stating the amount of tax still owed. While currently in not collectible status, the ten-year statute of limitations on tax debt collection remains in force. If the IRS cannot collect its tax dues within the ten-year statutory period, the tax debt expires.
The IRS is perennially, under tremendous pressure to recover the billions of dollars, currently outstanding. Therefore, it will seriously consider all the reasonable offers to recover its debts, and try to reach a tax resolution or close cases in all these areas.

A Miami tax attorney is one legal professional who is skilled and abreast in this field of expertise.
Do you owe back taxes and live in Miami Florida?
Tax Resolution X-perts are always available to answer the queries of the taxpayers who are bugged with the disputes over their annual taxes.
Here are among the common questions posed by the taxpayers as they get the chance to confer with the Arizona tax attorneys.
If an individual taxpayer owes less than $25,000 to the IRS, and can full-pay their liability in 6 years or less, they can request that a tax lien not be filed. In some instances, following this same fact pattern, they can also request that a tax lien that has been filed be removed. There are few exceptions in which tax liens may be removed such as negotiating an accelerated payment plan, but these are rare and typically require that a professional be involved in order to be successful.
In the year 1998, an additional relief has been added to the Code. With this Act, the innocent could now claim any of the relief forms such as for separation of liability, innocent spouse, or equitable relief. This Act relieves one of the spouses of the liability in terms of interest and penalty in a jointly filed tax return. More so, another relief has been granted to the divorced or separated taxpayers. There is now the separation of liability option. But then such party should prove that he or she has not taken part in the tax fraud.
