What Is the Best Option for Dealing with Your Debt?
Of course, it is entirely possible that you don't owe the back taxes that the IRS or a state revenue agency says that you owe. Our firm has the strength in tax litigation to help you challenge tax authorities, either in court or within the agencies' own internal processes.
In many cases, however, it may not be advisable to challenge the tax debt itself. The question should be how to resolve it in a way that makes the most sense for you. At the federal level, one option is a short-term payment plan. If you have enough money to pay within your tax debt within 120 days, this could be a good way for you to move forward and avoid a tax lien.
A short-term payment plan may not be long enough, however, to resolve your tax debt fully. To get the tax relief you seek, you may need to look at an installment agreement that stretches the payments out longer. It may also be possible to get the IRS to agree to an offer in compromise (OIC), under which you negotiate to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount that you owe.
Our attorneys can analyze your situation and guide you toward the tax debt resolution that fits best with your goals and circumstances.
