3 Ways to Get a Fresh Start with the IRS
Who couldn’t use a fresh start—especially when it comes to alleviating tax debt? If getting rid of debt were as easy as closing our eyes and snapping our fingers, we’d never learn meaning of discipline. No, if getting rid of debt was that easy, then the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wouldn’t even be necessary. But debt is a real thing that plagues most American taxpayers and while many may have it under control, there are millions who don’t. That uncontrollable debt can spill over to having issues with federal debt—something you might want to avoid altogether if at all possible.
Yet, many don’t.
The IRS’ Main Job
And aside from collecting tax debt, the IRS is very necessary in ensuring that the taxes collected are fully accounted for so that lawmakers and congressmen can disperse them to the proper legislative channels. In order for them to do this, they need to have an accurate budget of the numbers. This is projected by the number of American taxpaying citizens and their household income. The level of their income will determine exactly how much they owe in taxes.
So if those taxpayers who owe don’t file or pay the amount that the IRS claims they owe, this puts the US Treasury in a compromising situation. Take for example, your paycheck. If you’re expecting a certain amount of money to be directly deposited into your bank account, then chances are you may have already planned to spend that money on paying bills, groceries, etc. If you don’t receive that check, then you’re put in a compromising position. With the US Treasury, they’re in a compromising position that could be well into trillions of dollars!
Success Tax Relief does not want you to be in a financially compromising predicament. If there’s a way we can help you get a fresh start, then we want to provide you with 3 simple steps in helping to clear your tax debt once and for all.
- Monthly Payments
Even if you owe the IRS thousands of dollars, they will work out a monthly payment plan that won’t leave you in hardship. All you need to do is communicate your intention to pay.
- Avoid Tax Liens a Little Better
There’s really nothing that you need to do to make this work for you except avoid your tax debt from increasing. To do this, just avoid any missed or late payments because late payments equal penalty fees, and penalty fees and missed payments means you’ve forfeited the payment agreement, and you’re right back to where you started—in debt and/or in trouble!
- File for an Offer in Compromise
It’s quite possible that you might be eligible for an Offer in Compromise that allows you to pay less than you owe. This isn’t an option that everyone is qualified for. Each case is different.
To determine if you qualify for an Offer in Compromise or if you need assistance working out a monthly payment plan to the IRS, then contact Success Tax Relief for a free consultation at 877-825-1179 or contact us online.
