Services

Below are the resolutions and services that we typically provide for tax controversy cases. Each case is unique and may require more specific resolutions that are not listed below. Click on the types of resolutions below for a brief description.

Non-disclosure Installment Agreement

Non-disclosure agreements are one of your options if you cannot pay your taxes in full when they are due. These agreements are monthly payment plans and allow you to pay your debt over a determined amount of months. Non-disclosure agreements do not require submission of your financial information to the taxing authorities.

Financial-based Installment Agreement

These agreeements are similar to the non-disclosure agreements except you must submit your financial information, and the taxing authority will determine what you can afford to pay. Factors weighed are all income sources less allowable living expenses.

Currently Non-Collectible

There are times where you agree that you owe the IRS, but you cannot pay due to your current financial situation. If the IRS agrees you cannot both pay your taxes and your basic living expenses, it may place your account in "Currently Not Collectible" (CNC) status.

CNC is a protected status in which the IRS cannot collect from you, and they will not require you to make payments toward your past due tax debt. For example, while you are in CNC, the IRS will not levy your assets and income. While in this status, the IRS will continue to assess interest and penalties to your account and apply future tax refunds to your debt. You will also continue to receive an annual bill from the IRS as required under the law.

Offer In Compromise

An offer in compromise (OIC) allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you cannot pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. The IRS will approve an OIC when the amount offered represents the most they can expect to collect within a reasonable period of time. The IRS will require compliance in filing missing tax returns and other documentation. The success of your OIC depends upon many factors, which your attorney can discuss with you. Not all cases may qualify for an OIC.

Examinations

The IRS audits returns to determine if income, expenses, and credits are being reported accurately. In many cases, the audit resulted in a disallowance of certain items on your return. This creates a tax liability, as well as penalties. This can be a highly complex and document-intensive process. Your attorney can give you further details on this process and how it relates to your case.

Automated Underreporter

The IRS receives information from third parties related to annual income. When the system finds discrepancies in the third party information and the information reported on your tax return, you will receive a notice that you owe additional taxes. This can be a highly complex and document-intensive process. Your attorney can give you further details on this process and how it relates to your case.

Liens

A tax lien comes into being when the IRS assesses a tax against you and sends you a bill that you neglect or refuse to pay. The IRS will file a public document, the Notice of Federal Tax Lien, to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property. There are several options to prevent, discharge, or subordinate a tax lien. Your attorney can give you further details on this process and how it relates to your case.

Innocent/Injured Spouse

By requesting innocent or injured spouse relief, you can be relieved of responsibility for paying tax, interest, and penalties if your spouse (or former spouse) improperly reported items or omitted items on your tax return. This can be a highly complex and document-intensive process. Your attorney can give you further details on this process and how it relates to your case.

Penalty Abatement

The IRS offers penalty relief for First Time Abatement and Reasonable Cause. Under each type, an analysis should be conducted for qualification of relief and whether it is to your benefit to request such relief. There are cetain requirements for each request. Your attorney can give you further details on this process and how it relates to your case.

State Cases

Aside from federal taxes, you may also owe state taxes. Each state has different programs and qualifications for back taxes. For example, not all states offer the CNC protection, as well as penalty abatements. Additionally, states may also collect back taxes by other means such as license revocations or suspension of your professional business license(s). Each state varies in its collection process.
