IRS Tax Relief - Tax Debt Relief

The IRS Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. can help you get out from under your IRS or State tax debts.

The IRS and every state that collects income tax will not need to get a court judgment to freeze your bank accounts, file tax liens against your property, garnish your sages, seize your tax refunds or seize your assets. And that’s just the beginning of what the IRS can do. Owing money to the IRS or the state is a different world from dealing with private collection agencies. Without an experienced, competent tax relief attorney, government tax collectors will not go away. If you ignore them, you can find yourself losing everything you worked for without much warning.

When you need IRS tax relief help, you need it now, before your situation gets any worse. Here are some of the actions the IRS and the state tax debt relief attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc., can take on your behalf to protect your money and your property and stop the harassment.


Releasing Tax Liens, Wage Garnishments, and Bank Levies


What to do if the IRS has filed a Tax Lien, 
Tax Levy or Wage Garnishment

If you don’t act when you owe money to the IRS or a taxing state, you can easily find yourself the target of tax liens, garnished paychecks, and frozen bank accounts. Even if these actions have already been taken against you, it may be possible to get them reversed if you take action fast enough and speak with a qualified, focused Michigan tax attorney.

What are Tax Liens?

A tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt. It protects the government’s interest in all of your property, including real estate, personal property, and financial assets.

Tax Levies and IRS Wage Garnishment

A tax levy is a legal seizure of your property (liquid assets typically) to satisfy a tax debt. If the IRS serves a tax levy on your bank, your bank is required by law to send all of your money to the IRS. Additionally, if they send one to your employer, they are required to send your paychecks to the IRS minus a very small amount which is exempt.

Tax levies differ from tax liens in that a tax lien is a legal claim against your property to secure payment of your tax debt, while a tax levy actually takes your property to satisfy the tax debt.

How to Prevent IRS Liens and Tax Levies

The worst thing you can do is ignore IRS notices or notices from your state taxing authority. The IRS only takes these extreme measures after they have exhausted every other possible way of retrieving the tax debt that is owed to them and only after several failed attempts to get your attention. Before the IRS serves notice of a tax lien, tax levy or wage garnishment, take action and call the qualified IRS tax relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. who can put a stop to these actions before they happen. Don’t wait.
Releasing IRS Liens and Levies

If you have already been served with a tax lien or tax levy notification, there are still actions that can be taken to help you. Seek professional legal from an experienced IRS Tax Lawyer immediately. Your tax attorney may be able to help mitigate your losses and salvage damage to your credit report.

Qualifying for Currently Not Collectible Status 
Stops the IRS Harassment

What “Not Collectible Status” Can Do for You


Sometimes taxpayers find themselves in a position where they owe back taxes to the IRS or a state taxing authority, but cannot afford to pay any taxes at all and still meet their basic living expenses. For these taxpayers, seeking “currently not collectible” (CNC) status is an option. The operative word here is “currently.” If the IRS (or the state) approves your request, the debt does not go away but is put on hold until such time you are able to pay.

If you qualify for Currently not Collectible (CNC) status, the IRS and state taxing authorities remove your account from collections and gives you temporary relief from collection actions and frees you from obligations to make current payments. However, if you are granted Currently not Collectible (CNC) status, your tax refunds will still be garnished and the IRS may still file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien. Penalties and interest continue to mount until the debt is paid in full. If you are given Currently not Collectible status, you really should look at an Offer in Compromise settlement. More on this topic later.


How the IRS Determines Not Collectible Status

The IRS and state taxing authorities do not want to waste their time trying to squeeze blood from a turnip. If you can show that your average monthly living expenses are greater than your average monthly income, you could qualify for currently not collectible status. Before the IRS approves your request, they will ask you to complete a Collection Information Statement (Form 433-F Form 433-A or Form 433-B) and provide proof of your financial status, which will include a list of your assets, your income, and your living expenses. The IRS will periodically review your financial situation, and once it improves, the IRS will expect payment.


IRS Offer in Compromise: Settle your Tax Debts

An offer in compromise is a settlement agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS that settles a tax debt for a fraction of what is owed. It offers taxpayers a path toward putting their tax problems behind them and getting a fresh start.

This is what national tax resolution scam companies are referring to when they say they can get you a settlement for "pennies on the dollar".

CURRENT FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. CLIENTS HAVE HAD 
A 95% IRS SETTLEMENT SUCCESS RATE.

PER 2016 IRS STATISTICS, THE IRS APPROVED 42% OF ALL 
OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUBMISSIONS.

IF YOU DO YOU OWN OFFER IN COMPROMISE, 
YOU HAVE A 30% CHANCE OF SUCCESS.

Only taxpayers in very specific situations qualify, and every requirement must be answered correctly. A good, experienced tax attorney should be able to advise whether or not it is worthwhile going to the expense and time of filing an offer in compromise. Representation by a good tax attorney also greatly increases your chances of the IRS accepting your offer in compromise.

Three Types of Offer in Compromise

Doubt as to Collectability Offer in Compromise: The IRS determines realistically how much a taxpayer would be able to pay based on assets, current income and living expenses, and future earnings.
Doubt as to Liability Offer in Compromise: The IRS gives taxpayers who have a legitimate doubt that they owe all or part of a tax debt an opportunity to settle. Doubt as to liability offers are not available to taxpayers who have already litigated their tax debt in court and lost.
Effective Tax Administration Offer in Compromise: These offers are appropriate for taxpayers who owe an undisputed debt and face exceptional circumstances other than their financial ability to pay. The IRS will consider all facts and circumstances in determining a settlement they will accept.
Offer Amount for Tax Settlement

Determining your chances of an Offer in Compromise being approved depends on the facts and circumstances of each individual case, as well as the type of Offer in Compromise being submitted. 

Some taxpayers qualify for settlement of pennies on the dollar, whereas others might need to pay a substantial portion of their tax debt.
