We’ll get your tax problems solved so you can breathe easy again.

10 Biggest Problems Tax Consultants Can Solve

1. The IRS Says You Own Them Money

It can be upsetting and scary to get a letter from the IRS saying that you owe them money, especially if it is a significant amount. You may not understand why the IRS says you owe money, and you may not know how to determine if the collection notice is legitimate or if a mistake was made. You probably feel helpless to defend yourself or get more information. 

You don’t have to panic if the IRS says you owe them money. We will explain what the IRS is asking you for and why they think you owe them money. We will help you evaluate the legitimacy of the claim, and we will talk to the IRS on your behalf to get the situation resolved.

2. You’re Being Audited

Being audited may seem like a frightening experience. You may have heard stories about people who were audited and then were accused of criminal activity or ended up owing a lot of money. You may have questions about being audited and not know where to turn for answers. 

We will explain what auditing is and answer any questions you have. We will help you through every step of the process, and we will speak to the IRS when you need information from them. You will be able to relax knowing that you have a professional team of tax consultants on your side.

3. You Owe More Money Than You Can Pay Back 

Sometimes people are hit with bills from the IRS that they know they legitimately owe but do not have the money to pay. They often ignore communication from the IRS, which only makes the problem bigger. If you are in this situation, the IRS will just continue to add fees and penalties, and the amount you owe will rapidly grow.

Many people are not aware that there are programs and strategies that can help you. We will assess your situation to determine if you qualify to have your IRS debt reduced, and we can help you negotiate a payment plan.

4. Your Wages Are Being Garnished

If you fail to pay taxes that you owe to the IRS, they may garnish your wages. This means that they will take money out of each of your paycheck until the debt is paid. This could lead to you being unable to pay your regular bills or afford household expenses. It is also embarrassing because coworkers may know that you owe money. 

As soon as you begin working with us, we will take steps to stop the garnishment procedures so you will not be living on a reduced income. If the IRS has not begun garnishing your wages, we can stop the process before it starts.

5. You Are In Danger of Losing Your Property

In an effort to collect taxes, the IRS can put a lien on your property. In this situation, you will not be able to sell or refinance it until you have paid your debt. This can cause significant harm to your financial situation. The IRS can also get a court order to seize your property in order to pay your tax bill.

If you are in this situation, you should immediately contact a tax consultant who can help you stop the action from occurring so you can keep your home or other property. It is important that you take care of this as soon as possible because it is easier to avoid the process than to stop it.

6. You Can’t Get Through to the IRS and Speak With a Real Person

Just getting in touch with the IRS can be complicated and confusing. There are various numbers you can call, some of which are not answered by actual people. Once you find someone to talk to, you may not have the information you need or know what to say. 

We will communicate with the IRS for you and engage in any negotiation that is necessary to keep you from paying too much. With experienced tax consultants on your team, you don’t have to face the IRS alone.

7. You Need Help With Taxes After a Life Change

Major changes in your life can alter the way you pay taxes. You may have different assets and responsibilities after a life event, and it’s important to understand the rules. Some examples of this kind of event include going through a divorce, losing a spouse through death, or getting married. 

We will help you understand the changes in your taxes and advise about the most beneficial ways to handle them.

8. You Made a Mistake On Your Taxes

Don’t worry if you realize you made a mistake on your tax return. We can help you file the appropriate paperwork to tell the IRS that you are amending your return and need more time. Then we can help you make the changes so your new return will be correct. 

It is critical to take care of any mistakes on your taxes as soon as possible because simple mistakes can easily lead to bigger problems in the future. 

9. You Gotten a Letter From the IRS That You Don’t Understand

We will be able to quickly identify the letter you were sent, tell you what it means, and advise you of the next appropriate steps to take.
