US tax debt relief is not a benefit reserved just for the wealthy
who can afford expensive attorneys. Anyone can find relief when a tax
burden has become unbearable and there's no way to pay. You can, and
should, challenge taxes you don't think are correctly assessed or when
you don’t see a good way to pay the assessment.
US tax debt relief can take many different forms depending on the
situation. In many cases, the tax debt is created unexpectedly when you
get a letter in the mail telling you there's been an error on a return
and you now owe taxes, penalties and interest. In other cases, the
taxes are legitimate taxes owed from unfiled tax returns or unpaid
taxes, but there's simply no money to apply towards the balance due.
Returns that are marked for collection due to an error in the return
are processed through a computer system that contains hundreds of
automatic letters. It's frustrating enough to find out you owe taxes,
but the frustration level increases when you find yourself dealing with
a computer. The IRS calls these computer generated letters and tax
return adjustments the IRS Correction Program.
The IRS can make a tax assessment without review or notification.
This is like a creditor deciding you owe money whether it's true or
not. Though the burden of proof is suppose to be on the IRS, the
reality is the burden of proof has always fallen on taxpayer shoulders.
So now you're confronted with a tax bill for an unclear reason and a
total amount due that's rapidly changing because of penalties and
What makes this whole scenario even worse is that the IRS will mail
out collection notices they know are incorrect. The IRS is not
infallible and makes mistakes, but their arrogance leads them to ignore
what's right and fair. Finding US tax debt relief is possible though
when you use the services of an experienced tax negotiator.
Getting It Right
An IRS tax negotiator can help you deal with any tax debt no matter
what source it may have. An experienced tax consultant can help you
interpret the vague and confusing computer generated assessment and
collection notices. The negotiator can also help anyone who
legitimately owes back taxes and has no way to pay.
US tax debt relief can be found in a number of ways. In the case of
correction notices, the negotiator can work with the IRS to get the
invalid or confusing corrections verified, adjusted or eliminated. A
tax consultant can also work with the IRS to settle a debt through an
installment plan, or tax debt reduction or elimination.
There's no reason to assume the IRS has correctly calculated your
tax debt when you receive a correction notice. The best approach for
finding US tax debt relief is addressing the problem as soon as you
become aware it exists.
