If you owe back taxes to the IRS, you are not alone. There are millions of people across the US who owe back taxes to the IRS. The vast majority of these people are either self-employed or small business owners who have fallen behind on their quarterly tax payments.
According to a recent article on tax relief , if you are behind on your taxes and owe the federal government less than $10,000, the IRS will likely offer to put you on a monthly payment plan to pay off your tax debt. But if you can’t afford the payment plan or if you owe more than $10,000 you will have to pursue other options for getting tax relief from the IRS.
If you haven’t filed your taxes in awhile, keep in mind that before the IRS will talk to you about negotiating a tax settlement, you must have filed any outstanding tax documents. Once all of your documents are filed you have several options for renegotiating the amount the IRS says you owe.
For example, if you can prove to the IRS that you are unable to make any payments toward your tax debt, you may qualify for “currently not collectible” status, which will put collections on hold until you are in a better position to pay your debt. In other cases, when a huge portion of your tax debt is comprised of penalties and interest, a skilled negotiator can convince the IRS to wipe out these extra fees, allowing you to pay far less than you currently owe.
Some people actually consider negotiating with the IRS on their own behalf, but be forewarned: there is a lot of red tape involved with dealing with one of the largest bureaucracies in the world, and you probably don’t understand all of your many options when dealing with the IRS. For these reasons many more people prefer to engage the services of an experienced tax resolution law firm to deal with the IRS on their behalf.
