IRS Tax Settlement
An IRS tax settlement is an agreement between the IRS and a taxpayer to pay off any liability owed. Usually, a tax settlement arrangement comes on the heels of an audit or review, which is why it is important you have tax professionals like Nationwide Tax Group handling your IRS tax settlement needs.
While the IRS wants to be paid in full for any amount they determine to be due, there are exceptions to this. Common tax debt solutions center on reducing the debt owed or spreading the amount out over time. If you owe the IRS money, you absolutely need professional help negotiating an IRS tax settlement. Here are a few reasons why:
The Interest and Penalties Add Up
If the IRS determines that you owe a tax debt, the interest and penalties generally account for a big portion of the final number. Late payment and filing penalties can be five percent per month, up to twenty five percent or five months. It makes no difference if the amount is large or small, the burden of debt can frequently be reduced with a tax settlement program.
Nationwide Tax Group has a team of tax professionals who will act on your behalf. Since everyone’s financial situation is unique, an individual assessment is required. This involves a personal review of prior tax returns, audit findings, and the amount of interest and penalties assessed. Once we make our own determination of your current situation, optimal IRS debt settlement solutions are applied.
IRS Tax Settlement Programs Involve a Lot of Red Tape
Some people do attempt IRS debt settlements on their own. Many times, these are rejected because the taxpayer does not understand how IRS debt settlement programs work. Often, this denial will come despite them investing significant money and effort into meeting tax settlement requirements.
The IRS cares about your compliancy, not you personally. It can be impossible for the average taxpayer to know the right things to say or do when confronted with a liability. The IRS has the power to use almost any means necessary to collect from you. Unfavorable results could result in a large debt, wage garnishment, or even criminal charges.
