​File tax return

Whether or not you can afford to pay your tax liability, you are better off filing your tax returns timely. 

If you fail to file your Federal income tax return in a timely manner, you will be charged an additional 5% of the tax due per month for the first 5 months after the original due date the of the tax return. 

This equates to paying an additional 25% above the original tax liability due plus other significant penalties and interest on both the tax owed and penalties.You may ask “Why should I file if I cannot afford to pay?” Aside from the additional liability that continues to accrue by not having filed all of your returns, you are not in compliance. 

By definition, compliance requires that all tax returns, current and past be filed, that the taxpayer has paid current tax estimates and/or liabilities and that the taxpayer will continue to do so going forward. The IRS and most State taxing agencies will not negotiate with a taxpayer who is not in compliance. It is easier to pay someone to prepare and file a tax return each year rather than paying someone a much larger sum of money to prepare tax returns for multiple years all at one time. 

In the latter, the taxpayer is usually scrambling to gather information that is now several years old and to add additional stress, many taxpayers are required to prepare and file returns while their funds which were most likely limited to begin with, are now tied up due to a bank levy or wage garnishment. If you missed the boat to file your tax returns timely, file them as soon as possible. Contact the Taxing Agency (before they contact you) Whether you owe the IRS or your local State taxing agency, it makes sense to make contact sooner than later. Aside from the stress of not knowing what they expect from you, you face the threat of collection activity. Once a taxpayer becomes delinquent, they will receive several notices increasing in degree of seriousness. If a taxpayer continues to ignore these series of notices, they will surely encounter one of two types of collection.

Searching For Tax Resolution

What You Need To Know When Searching For an Tax Company.

People who find themselves in deep tax problems experience the same symptoms, more or less: many sleepless nights spent in anxiety with calculators at hand hoping to find some ways to get out of the mess they are forced to endure; loss of appetite caused by the stress of possible litigation; reduced budgets for even things which are considered as necessities; and depression because of the seeming hopelessness of things.  

Indeed, during these times of despair, a tax resolution is always prayed for, one which would bring an end to all these fiscal woes. But how, exactly, would you be able to achieve a favorable tax resolution? What are the options available for you? 

* Tax resolution can best be facilitated by an expert. If you would hire the services of a tax attorney, you’re sure to have the best representation when it comes to these matters. A tax lawyer would inform you, quite efficiently, the remedies that you could avail of. If you’re looking for the most favorable tax resolution, then a tax attorney is the best person to consult.

* Lawyer, however,s can be quite expensive for even a much needed tax resolution. A good alternative would be to procure the services of a tax advisor or even a tax accountant. A tax advisor is an expert on tax matters and the complex workings of the field.  He will charge for his services, but not as much as a titled attorney. A tax accountant’s primary concern, on the other hand, is to prepare your tax forms and declarations. But this doesn't preclude you from asking some queries about the most favorable tax resolution you could gain, given your circumstances which the tax accountant should be familiar with. 

* Consult on-line services for prompt answers to your questions.  Self-study is well and good, but if you’re looking for definitive tax resolution, you would need some inputs from professionals. There are a lot of on-line tax resolution services on the Internet. 

The best taxresolution you would be able to employ, however, is not something post-problems. Rather, it is something you should do beforehand, and that is to exercise diligence. Through diligence in the steps you take that would affect your fiscal personality, you would be able to lower your tax liability, stop onerous garnishments and levies, and prevent the execution of liens. Practicing diligence before jumping into the waters would be the best way to avoid having to seek out a tax resolution afterwards.

Do you owe tax debt? IRS will Bank Levies - Wage Garnishments

There a good chance that you are reading this article because a taxing agency has either levied your bank account, garnished your wages.

Tax Levies and garnishments while effective, are not done with the intent to collect unpaid taxes in full. Rather, these methods are used as effective calls to action. A bank levy is accomplished by freezing the available funds in one’s bank account or accounts. After a waiting period (21 days for the IRS), the funds will be remitted to the taxing agency unless the taxpayer can (1) prove they do not owe the money, (2) prove they qualify for hardship status or (3) in some instances enter into an alternative agreement to pay. Keep in mind that upon levy, the money is tied up and is for all intents and purposes in the taxing agency’s “court”. We say, “whoever has the money…wins”. Simply asking for the money back rarely works. A bank levy is a one-time occurrence but new levies can recur indefinitely.

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.

A Miami tax attorney is one legal professional who is skilled and abreast in this field of expertise. Your Miami tax attorney will be conscientious in filing all of the needed paperwork to meet all of the things required to you. To make things short, your Miami tax attorney will act on your behalf. When you get subject to divorce or separation, you should at once consult a trusted Miami tax attorney before things get out of hand. 

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.
