Compliance and IRS Protection

When you’re up to bat against the IRS, you don’t want to go in ill-equipped to face them. Because they’ll launch some fastballs at you and take every last bit of your hard-earned money to pay what they think you owe them. That’s why you need a pinch-hitter who’ll face the IRS for you. We’ve got the skills, the patience, and the knowledge to know exactly how to respond to what the IRS is throwing at you.

If you’re needing to get compliant with the IRS or need protection from the various penalties the IRS might throw your way, go ahead and fill out the form at the bottom of this page. One of our tax specialists will be in touch with a FREE CONSULTATION.

Here’s what we can do for you:

IRS Representation

“Take on” the IRS without lifting a finger.

There’s nothing more time-consuming than a “crash course” in tax law when the IRS decides to audit your return. Just the time it takes to gather the documentation supporting every line item on your tax return is substantial, never mind the additional time it will take you to learn about tax laws. And when that audit letter arrives in the mailbox, you WILL spend the additional time because you know that by not complying with the auditor’s every request, you will likely end up with a hefty tax bill complete with interest and fees for tax deficiency. Meanwhile, your business and your personal life will suffer.

An IRS Tax Auditor is trained to pick apart a tax return and scrutinize every line. It’s an auditor’s job to extract every scrap of information that you are legally obliged to provide. Tax Auditors are the experts of the world of tax returns, and you are an expert of… well, something else. Would you hire a novice to come in and run your business to compete against your expert competitors? So, why meet the IRS on your own?

Our clients rarely have to do more than forward us an IRS Notification of Audit Letter — should one arrive. As part of our expert tax preparation services, we take on the IRS for you. We handle the paperwork, the questions, the scrutiny, and the intimidation factor while you go on about your business as usual.

IRS Levy Protection

When you wake up to find your money and assets gone… we’ll help you get it back.

If you owe money to the IRS, they may choose to come get their payment by levying your property. This means you might literally wake up one morning with nothing! You may find your bank accounts have been cleaned out, your assets have been seized, and your wages are being garnished. There is no “affordable payment plan” when you are dealing with the IRS. Their goal is to gain what is owed to them quickly and completely.

If you are ignoring communications from the IRS, an IRS Tax Levy may well be in your future.
Once the IRS is garnishing your wages, they will continue to take money directly from your paycheck until your tax debt is paid, without regard to leaving you enough money to pay the rest of your bills. They will even take what you already own and begin selling it at auction in order to get the money owed to them.

You don’t want to find yourself in this situation.
If you are in this situation, however, let us see what we can do to help. We can often get at least some of these levies released to help you move toward the goal of getting your life back.

Asset Seizure Protection

Is the IRS going to confiscate your home, your car, and even your retirement accounts?

Long-time tax liability might be met with the most extreme forms of compensation by the IRS. It is within their right to seize assets- like your home, your car, and valuables such as jewelry, and collectibles to pay off the debt. These items might not be even sold at fair market value; the government’s goal is to quickly take money from you by any means possible.
They might even collect by seizing your insurance policies and retirement accounts, leaving you with absolutely nothing.

There is a three-step process that the IRS follows before they seize any of your property. First, the IRS issues you a notice, next, you must refuse to pay, and finally, the IRS will issue a final notice. If it does get to this point, you can request a collection due process hearing. Getting experienced representation in your corner at this hearing can make all the difference.

Contact us immediately to take action and start a plan that will satisfy the IRS’s need to collect from you. With our help, your planned course of action for taking care of tax liability is going to be far preferable to the course of action the government will enforce upon you.

IRS Lien Safeguards

Secure your credit, keep more of your money, by letting us handle your IRS lien problems for you!

If you can’t pay your taxes, the IRS has the right and the ability to establish a lien against your property. This might be your house, your company, anything else that you own, and even assets owned by your spouse. In short, if you owe money to the IRS, the IRS may own you in only a few short steps.

Once you have an IRS tax lien filed against you, the difficulties are endless. The lien will show up on your credit report. Banks won’t want to deal with you because they don’t want the extra hassle of having to work with the IRS to take your money. You won’t be able to get a loan for anything… not a house, not a car… and the revenue from anything you sell will be taken by the IRS until your lien is paid in full.

Wage Garnishment Protection

What can you do when the IRS is reaching into your paycheck?

When the IRS goes about settling debts, it does not do so gently, and your employer is powerless to help you out. Once an employer receives notice that the IRS is garnishing your wages, the employer is required by law to send a percentage of your money directly to the government, even if that means leaving you with too little to pay the bills.

The government will continue taking money from your paychecks until your debt, and all penalties and interest acquired, are paid.

There is a way to stop IRS garnishment.

The IRS must follow strict guidelines when imposing and releasing a wage garnishment. If you find yourself in conditions that the IRS considers “economic hardship” the garnishment can be stopped!

We can help you arrange a payment plan with the IRS that is much more favorable to YOU and your current financial situation. If the government is already garnishing your wages, we can provide assistance in negotiating a release of that garnishment and arranging for a more suitable payment plan in its place. This allows you to receive the full benefit of your wages while working to meet your debt to the IRS in a more reasonable manner.
