How do I help resolve your tax problems?

I represent you.

With me as your tax representative, you never have to contact IRS personnel directly. This avoids the problem of taxpayers saying the wrong thing — any misstatement—that might lead the IRS to conclude that the taxpayer is lying which is a criminal offense.

I assess your tax situation.

I work with you to thoroughly analyze your ability to pay to develop a strategy. This is done using the same formulas that the IRS Collections Division will use to determine whether or not to accept an Offer-In-Compromise or a Payment Plan.

I provide damage control.

The IRS will not make a deal with you if the hole is getting deeper. So my next step is to get you in compliance with your current year's taxes.

I give you a guided resolution.

There are proven legal options for resolving any IRS problem. I can guide you in implementing the steps and options that are the best solution for your situation, the solution that saves you the most money.

My Process to Help Clients Remove IRS Debt

Step 1: Prepare Any Missing Returns

Prepare the missing returns for the last six years. The IRS's internal rule is to normally look for the last six years. Also, if you are not in a community-property state, don't forget to consider Married Filing Joint vs. Married Filing Separate.

Step 2: Develop Your Strategy

Develop your strategy using the IRS Formula to determine what they can reasonably expect to collect.

Step 3: Get You Into "Compliance"

The IIRS requires that you be in "Compliance" before they will negotiate any deals with you. This means that all your tax returns have been filed and that your current withholding and estimated taxes are being made. Their Policy is based upon the idea that it is pointless for them to waste time negotiating with a taxpayer who is continuing to dig their hole deeper.

Step 4: Implementation

Once we have the Strategy worked out and you are in Compliance, it's time to implement it. This is where the negotiations begin, and a payment plan or Offer-in-Compromise happens.
