Posted on by Michael Sullivan Fresh Start Tax Expert

 

We are former AFFORDABLE IRS agents and managers who know the back tax system. Since 1982.

 

We are AFFORDABLE  IRS tax experts and specialists. A plus rated by the BBB.

We are an IRS problems service business that can help you in any facet of an IRS or state tax problem. We are experts in all IRS tax matters.

Our 95 years of direct IRS work experience puts us in a category all by ourself.

Each taxpayer /client case  has a unique set of circumstances and not all cases are the same.

At fresh start tax we develop a unique program to help taxpayers that have IRS tax debt. Upon your initial tax consultation we can set up a unique plan and make sure you understand the system and the strategies used.

We can filed all back tax returns with or without records.

If you have received an IRS levy or wage garnishment within 24 hours of receiving your current financial statement we can get a full release, we can represent you during an IRS tax audit, if you owe back taxes we can settle your tax debt get you in a hardship or set up a payment plan depending on your current financial statement.

We will explain to you all your options and remedies on your initial call.

We have over 95 years of working directly for the local self for IRS offices. We have worked to supervisors, managers and teaching instructors. there is no firm in South Florida with more direct experience working for IRS.

You can speak to a former IRS agent or manager who has worked this system for years. You will not find more experience IRS tax experience for IRS tax problems.

Every tax matter and problem has a resolution strategy. Generally there is a short-term strategy in a long-term strategy.

There are various options you have for IRS tax relief:

The basic options include:

1.trust fund appeals, the possibility of an offer in compromise, doubt to liability,

2.hardships, or currently not collectible,

3. payments plan, and

4.the offer in compromise, if you are a qualified and suitable candidate.

5. bankruptcy is another option.

How the Internal Revenue Service will work your case if you owe the IRS tax debt.

IRS will require a 433A or 433F, an individual financial statement.

You can find that form directly on our website.

 

Many times the IRS uses 433F, depending were the cases in the system. Cases worked in the ACS system uses shorter version of the financial statement.

If the case is worked in the local office the revenue officer will use form 433.A

That financial statement will need to be fully documented along with bank statements, copies of checks and monthly expenses.

We will walk you through the process of how the IRS will work your case in the collection action that can possibly taken.

Will also review with you the IRS national standards program on all cases for those who owe back taxes.

Once IRS reviews your current financial statement they will make a determination and generally put you in one of two categories with the option of filing an offer in compromise.

 

IRS has the option to:

1.IRS determines on 40% of the cases that taxpayers are put into hardship which means they can’t pay the tax at this time. Sometimes it is called currently not collectible. Cases that are placed at currently not collectible or hardship stay in there for a period of 2 to 3 years and come back out to the field at a later time.

2. 6.5 million people enter monthly payment plans and pay a certain amount based on their current documented financial statement.

Other taxpayers file an offer in compromise to settle their case for pennies on the dollar. The offer in compromise requires a lot of skill and expertise to have accepted by the Internal Revenue Service.

 

Tax Settlements

It is an agreement between a taxpayer and the Internal Revenue Service that settles the taxpayer’s tax liabilities for less than the full amount owed.

Taxpayers who can fully pay the liabilities through an installment agreement or other means, will not be eligible for a OIC in most cases.

In order to be eligible for a OIC, the taxpayer must have filed all tax returns, made all required estimated tax payments for the current year and made all required federal tax deposits for the current quarter if the taxpayer is a business owner with employees.

In most cases, the IRS will not accept a OIC unless the amount offered by a taxpayer is equal to or greater than the reasonable collection potential (the RCP).

The RCP is how the IRS measures the taxpayer’s ability to pay.

The RCP includes the value that can be realized from the taxpayer’s assets, such as real property, automobiles, bank accounts, and other property.

In addition to property, the RCP also includes anticipated future income less certain amounts allowed for basic living expenses.

The IRS may accept a OIC based on three grounds:

• First, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt as to liability. A compromise meets this only when there is a genuine dispute as to the existence or amount of the correct tax debt under the law.

• Second, the IRS can accept a compromise if there is doubt that the amount owed is fully collectible.

Doubt as to collectibility exists in any case where the taxpayer’s assets and income are less than the full amount of the tax liability.

• Third, the IRS can accept a compromise based on effective tax administration. An offer may be accepted based on effective tax administration when there is no doubt that the tax is legally owed and that the full amount owed can be collected, but requiring payment in full would either create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable because of exceptional circumstances.

When submitting a OIC based on doubt as to collectibility or based on effective tax administration, taxpayers must use the most current version of:

1.Form 656, Offer in Compromise, and also submit Form 433-A (OIC), Collection Information Statement for Wage Earners and Self-Employed Individuals, and/or,

2. Form 433-B (OIC), Collection Information Statement for Businesses. A taxpayer submitting a OIC based on doubt as to liability must file a Form 656-L (PDF), Offer in Compromise (Doubt as to Liability), instead of Form 656 and Form 433-A (OIC) and/or Form 433-B (OIC).

Form 656 and referenced collection information statements are available in the Offer in Compromise Booklet, Form 656-B (PDF).

In general, a taxpayer must submit a $186 application fee with the Form 656. Do not combine this fee with any other tax payments.

However, there are two exceptions to this requirement:

• First, no application fee is required if the OIC is based on doubt as to liability.

• Second, the fee is not required if the taxpayer is an individual (not a corporation, partnership, or other entity) who qualifies for the low-income exception.

This exception applies if the taxpayer’s total monthly income falls at or below 250 percent of the poverty guidelines published by the Department of Health and Human Services. Section 4 of Form 656 contains the Low Income Certification guidelines to assist taxpayers in determining whether they qualify for the low-income exception.

A taxpayer who claims the low-income exception must complete section 4 of Form 656 and check the certification box.

Options: Taxpayers may choose to pay the offer amount in a lump sum or in installment payments.

A “lump sum cash offer” is defined as an offer payable in 5 or fewer installments within 5 or fewer months after the offer is accepted. If a taxpayer submits a lump sum cash offer, the taxpayer must include with the Form 656 a nonrefundable payment equal to 20 percent of the offer amount.

This payment is required in addition to the $186 application fee.

The 20 percent payment is “nonrefundable” meaning it will not be returned to the taxpayer even if the offer is rejected or returned to the taxpayer without acceptance.

Instead, the 20 percent payment will be applied to the taxpayer’s tax liability. The taxpayer has a right to specify the particular tax liability to which the IRS will apply the 20 percent payment.

An offer is called a “periodic payment offer” under the tax law if it is payable in 6 or more monthly installments and within 24 months after the offer is accepted.

When submitting a periodic payment offer, the taxpayer must include the first proposed installment payment along with the Form 656.

This payment is required in addition to the $186 application fee. This amount is nonrefundable, just like the 20 percent payment required for a lump sum cash offer.

Also, while the IRS is evaluating a periodic payment offer, the taxpayer must continue to make the installment payments provided for under the terms of the offer.

These amounts are also nonrefundable.

These amounts are applied to the tax liabilities and the taxpayer has a right to specify the particular tax liabilities to which the periodic payments will be applied.

Upon acceptance of a OIC, the taxpayer may no longer designate offer payments to any specific tax liability covered in the offer agreement.

Ordinarily, the statutory time within which the IRS may engage in collection activities is suspended during the period that the OIC is under consideration, and is further suspended if the OIC is rejected by the IRS and where the taxpayer appeals the rejection to the IRS Office of Appeals within 30 days from the date of the notice of rejection.

If the IRS accepts the taxpayer’s offer, the IRS expects that the taxpayer will have no further delinquencies and will fully comply with the tax laws.

The offer in compromise requires a lot of skill because reviewed by several layers of Internal Revenue Service.I should know, I am former IRS agent and teaching instructor of the offer in compromise.

Call us today for a free initial tax consultation.When you call our office you will speak to true IRS tax experts.

We are the fast, friendly, and affordable professional tax firm.
