Tax Assistance for the Self-Employed

Tax Debts

If you fail to pay enough quarterly taxes, you may be in debt. Tax debt is difficult for contractors to pay off. Every quarter, you face another payment. Scott Scammahorn can help you navigate a tax debt, including payment plans and other relief.

Unfiled Tax Returns

If you’re behind on your quarterly taxes, that’s one thing. If you failed to file a return, that’s another. Failure to file your taxes is a crime, and you’re going to need an experienced tax lawyer to get those taxes filed and your debt managed.

Payroll & Employer Taxes

As a self-employed individual, you’re both the employer and the employee. Unfortunately, this almost doubles your tax burden. If you’re behind on your employer taxes, Scott Scammahorn can help.

Audit Representation

If you’ve received a notification of an audit, you might not actually be in trouble. It’s not likely to be randomly selected, but it does happen. Before doing anything, you should consult with an experienced tax attorney.

Levies & Liens

If you’ve received a notice to levy your personal or business property, the IRS has already taken several steps to collect on a debt. At this point, you should consult with a lawyer to learn what your options are moving forward.

And More

A Dallas Tax Lawyer Focused on Tangible Results

The Dallas law offices of Scott Scammahorn pursue every possible avenue of relief for their clients.

Offers in Compromise

If you have a tax debt, occasionally the IRS will accept less than you owe and dismiss the rest of the debt. An offer in compromise (OIC) isn’t always possible, but Scott Scammahorn always pursues the option.

Currently Not Collectible

If you’re unable to pay your tax debt, the IRS may determine that your debt is currently not collectible (CNC). This isn’t a permanent solution, but it can get you relief so you can find another way to discharge your tax debt.

Debt Reduction

If you owe the IRS a significant sum, they will pursue that debt, and they will mercilessly pursue that debt. Our offices will investigate the reason for your debt and identify strategies to reduce how much you owe.

Levy/Lien Relief

If the IRS has placed a levy or lien on you, you’re likely facing significant unresolved tax debt. These levies and liens will follow you around, so it’s imperative that you contact an attorney who can help.

Installment Agreements

The IRS will often accept an installment agreement in lieu of paying your debt all at once. These installment agreements can give you the space and time you need to get back on your feet, pay down your debt, and get some relief.

Penalty Reductions

The IRS levies significant penalties and interest on debt owed to them. Occasionally, they’re willing to reduce those penalties. If possible, our team will pursue penalty reductions to lower your overall debt.
