For various reasons, sometimes a taxpayer cannot pay his or her delinquent taxes. In these cases, the firm can explore several collection alternatives such as:
- Hardship classification demonstrating that an account is currently non-collectible
- Installment agreements including partial pay installment agreements if an account cannot be paid fully by the collection statute expiration date
- Offer in Compromise when it is unlikely that tax debt can be collected in full and the offer amount represents the potential collection amount
Once your situation has been evaluated, the most suitable option(s) for making payments may be determined, including whether you qualify for an IRS collection initiative called the “Fresh Start Program.” Fresh Start can reduce tax debts and make it easier to settle an account. Regardless of the collection option that best resolves your case, assistance is provided to prepare and submit all documentation, as well as representation to negotiate terms and acceptance of payment agreements.
