IRS NOTICES


There is no need to be frightened should you receive an IRS Notice. Open the IRS Notice and read it. Don't make your tax liability into a much bigger IRS problem. If you have been sent certified mail from the IRS, pick it up, open it and read it. There are steps and actions that you can take.

Contact Flat Fee Tax Service. We will advise you of your best course of action prior to you contacting the IRS. The IRS is the world's most powerful collection agency. The function of the IRS is to collect as much money as they can as quickly as they can. The IRS is not a "consumer protection agency." The IRS does have rules and regulations that they must abide by. 

The IRS is has trained personnel that will have you agreeing to an Installment Agreement that may very well be more than you should be paying. The IRS will not explain to you that you may be Currently not Collectible. The IRS will not explain to you how to go about an IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise program. The IRS will not prepare your Penalty Abatement for reasonable cause.
