What options are available to me to solve my tax problems?
Among several services, we offer:
- A monthly payment plan set up to pay back the taxpayer's tax liability. The IRS has guidelines as to what amount they will accept and the time frame they will accept it in. A financial profile is required from the taxpayer before the tax resolution firm can negotiate an installment agreement.
Offer in Compromise / Tax Relief
- An offer to the IRS to lower the total tax liability owed by the taxpayer due to financial constraints. This is a very popular solution advertised by most firms, but not always effective. More below.
Currently Not Collectible
- When the taxpayer cannot afford to pay the IRS monies due to a lack of assets and low income or no income (recently laid off due to current economy) then the IRS will deem the taxpayer Currently Not Collectible and agree that their tax liability will be waive for the time being.
- The IRS assesses penalties and interest on tax liabilities so over time taxes due years ago can increase from hundreds to thousands of dollars. The IRS will sometimes lower or eliminate these fees with a well worded request.
Bank Levies/Wage Garnishment Release
- The IRS will collect their monies due by any means necessary. They may take all your assets with a levy or garnish up to 70% or your wages. A tax resolution firm can negotiate with the IRS to have these released in as little as 4 business days.
- If you are currently being audited and you don't know why, it is very important to be represented by tax professionals who can get to the bottom of the problems and fix them. We can even have your past audit reopened if you feel you did not get a fair shake.
I have unfiled taxes from previous years but no longer have my records from those years. Can you help me?
JG Tax Group can prepare your past unfiled tax returns by requesting your IRS wage transcripts and asking you to complete a simple questionnaire.
Is there anything I need to do before I can solve my tax problems?
Before the IRS will accept any negotiations to solve your tax liability you will need to be “in compliance” (all returns are filed) without any unfiled tax returns. Any unfiled returns up to ten years ago may be required to be prepared and filed with the IRS.
The tax resolution firm I contacted has told me that they will solve my problems with an Offer in Compromise. Is this true?
Caution! Do not be fooled! Many people do not qualify. The Offer in Compromise (OIC) process is long and difficult, and the Internal Revenue Service rejects the great majority of the offers it receives.
Simply put, if there are enough assets and income available to the taxpayer, he or she does not qualify for an OIC. But unscrupulous tax resolution firms will not disclose this information to the taxpayer. They will take the taxpayer's money, fill out an application and send it in to the IRS, regardless of whether the taxpayer has a legitimate chance of success. The tax firm will consider the "job" completed with the submission of the OIC and hold no further obligation to the customer. A tax attorney firm with your best interest in mind will let you know upfront that there are several options available to you, including the OIC, but also solutions where you fit in, especially after a comprehensive financial profile. With over 120 years of combined insider IRS experience, JG Tax Group will let you know upfront whether you do or do not qualify for an OIC and what your other options may be.
The IRS is sending me letters and calling me. What should I do?
The IRS is the world's largest collection agency. They will ask you for information on your employment, bank accounts, properties owned, automobiles and any other assets you may have for the purpose of knowing what they can seize, levy, or garnish. They will note down all conversations with you for future use by other agents. The IRS can seize just about any assets needed to pay unpaid taxes. One of the main reasons to hire JG Tax Group is for the experience we have in dealing with the IRS. When you hire JG Tax Group we will take care of all communications with the IRS so you do not have to deal with the harassing phone calls and upsetting letters. The professionals at JG Tax Group know how the IRS thinks and what they are looking for and therefore any negotiations with the IRS will be done from a place of power and not fear.
I have a tax liability from years past when I was single but am now married. Does my new spouse share in my tax liability?
If you have been assessed taxes due while you were single or married to another person, your new spouse does not share in your tax liability. But the IRS may still request your new spouse's financial information because they need to know what your household can afford to pay the IRS. But the truth is that only the taxpayer who filed those tax years is liable for them. JG Tax Group will make sure that your spouse is not involved in your tax solution and that the IRS will only deal with what you can afford to pay.
My financial institution received a bank levy. What can I do?
When a levy is issued, the government actually takes money out of your bank account or collects money owed to you or your business. They will keep sending a notice to your financial institution to wipe out your account periodically. JG Tax Group works towards removing the bank levy within 4 business days.
I have a wage garnishment in effect. Can you help me?
In most cases JG Tax Group can release wage garnishments within 4 business days or stop them temporarily and give you the time you need to get in compliance with the IRS. Read more about these success stories.
Can the IRS take my house?
In most cases property seizures are all but non-existent due to the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998, but the IRS will still threaten to take your home, cars and retirement accounts in order to scare you into complying with their demands. Representation from JG Tax Group protects you from these threatening tactics.
Can I go to jail for owing back taxes?
Debtor's prisons were eliminated long ago. Nowadays, people usually only go to jail for tax evasion, or the wilful exercise of not paying taxes on money earned.
