What is Tax Resolution?
Tax resolution is the umbrella term for services that aid taxpayers when they run afoul with the IRS. Sometimes called IRS representation, tax problem recovery, or tax controversy, The services include: Offer in Compromise assistance, lien and levy relief, penalty abatement, lien release, levy release and more.
Tax Resolution Services include:
Under an installment agreement, the taxpayer agrees to pay the entire amount of their debt in monthly installments over a period of up to six years. This method allows the taxpayer to pay in small, manageable amounts so that the debt is not overwhelming.
Partial Payment Installment Agreement
A partial payment installment agreement, or PPIA, is like an installment agreement, except that a combination of the statute of limitations and the taxpayer’s ability to pay means that the tax debt doesn’t have to be settled in full.
Offer in Compromise
An offer in compromise is an option offered by the IRS that allows a taxpayer to settle their debt for less than what is actually owed.
Tax penalties can stack up fast, so know how to get them abated can mean big savings for your clients.
When you come to the IRS and invoke Reasonable Cause in an effort to get a tax abatement, you are essentially saying the taxpayer has a really good excuse for whatever behavior it was that led to their tax penalty.
When a lien is released, your client’s property or assets are no longer encumbered and subject to seizure by the IRS. More plainly, the IRS releases their claim on the assets.
While a lean release is an acceptable solution for your client in many cases, a release does not solve all the problems created by a lien. Most notably, a lien release does not address damages done to the taxpayer’s ability to obtain credit.
When the IRS levies a taxpayer’s asset, that asset becomes the property of the United States Government.
