Offers in Compromise, Numbers and Facts.

Posted on by

It may surprise you, but the number of offer’s in compromise being filed has dropped over the last couple of years. In 2005, just over 74,000 offers in compromise were filed. In 2007, only 46,000 were received. Why the drop???  The writer believes that the tax industry got the message not to send in a mess. Most of the offers that were filed were sloppy to say the least. The IRS has standards and people were ignoring them. Commercialism has hurt this industry because of unethical people trying to pick up a buck. Companies need to realize these are real people with real tax problems. The problem is to be taken serious. Look for experienced people working your offers in compromise.

With the computer age, verification is so much easier. Beware.

Posted on by

    The Internal Revenue Service receives about 78,000 offers in compromise each year.

OWE IRS Back, Past DueTaxes + Here is How IRS Finds Out About You = IRS Tax Experts, Former Agent, Since 1982

Posted on by

    Back in the day when I worked at Internal Revenue Service we would spend hours and hours trying to find information about taxpayers. Today a simple click of a button can get information to Internal Revenue Service in lightning speed. A lot of IRS’s work is now done on the computer system. The IRS uses a very specific search engine to get information about you.One of the main search tools is called “ACCURINT”. A killer serach engine. It is open to the public or anyone who wants to pay for the service. Different agencys use other search engines, but that is IRS ‘s engine of choice. It allows them to go back as far as they need too. There are also different levels in the engine to obtain all kinds of information. I recently had a case that the IRS used ACCURINT to pull up a court case. They summoned information from the attorneys and found a wealth of assets no one knew about. The IRS usually pulls these report up on almost all large cases. If you … Continue reading

IRS Tax Audit Help = The IRS Computer System Scores Every Tax Return for a IRS Tax Audit = Former IRS Auditors

Posted on by

  As former IRS agents and teaching instructors most taxpayers are unaware that IRS scores every tax return for the potential of a tax audit.   Only those scores with the highest DIF score have the potential for IRS tax audit. All key codes on every tax return are entered into the general data base. Each tax return has a DIF number attached to it. It is a series of internal codes that the IRS uses to determine whether or not it wants to audit the tax returns. It is based on norms for certain averages and the codes are kept locked up deep within the IRS vault. Fall out of the average DIF scores and you can expect to be audited. It should also be noted that the IRS randomly samples a number of returns throughout the year. Please keep in mind there there are a variety of different IRS audit techniques that Internal Revenue Service uses. The DIF score is the most common audit but there are generally 8 to 10 other audit techniques and IRS uses to … Continue reading

Payroll Taxes Are On The IRS “Hit List”.

Posted on by

Payroll taxes, 941’s are on the IRS hit list. The IRS works at and gives full attention to payroll tax cases. These are the so-called Trust Fund cases. Since these are monies held by a company ” in trust”, the IRS expects these to be paid over, on time, faithfully. When the IRS finds this is not the case, they come on strong. Most of the time, they will require a financial statement from the owner of the business to prepare to go after the responsible officers individually for the taxes. These are not taxes to fool around with. Never fall behind on them. Borrow money if you must, to pay them when required. When you get behind call us. IRS treats these cases under 6672 of the IRC code.

Where Does The IRS Get Their Tax Levy or Wage Garnishments Sources Information?

Posted on by

  Believe it or not, from YOU. The IRS simply looks at your 1040 tax return and finds the information right there. If you have written a check to the IRS in the last 3 or 4 years they have that as well. The IRS  goes through your tax returns and looks at your employers and the interest and dividend income information that you have given them. They plug that information into the system and out pops a levy. So, you the taxpayer give them the levy source information.  Also keep in mind that third-party supply IRS information about wages and 1099 information. Third parties are required to send IRS information about all income. So you plus the help of third parties give IRS the information to take money if you owe back taxes.
