Common Reasons You Have Tax Debt

You Failed to File Your Returns

A lot of people fail to file their taxes. This can result in heft fines, penalties, and–worst of all–interest. If you failed to file your taxes and owed money, you may owe tens of thousands of dollars in penalties alone.

If you owe the IRS because you didn’t file your taxes, Scott will work with you to file those returns, helping you seize every credit possible to lower your burden. He’ll fight to get your debt reduced or eliminated.

Your Returns Were Incorrect

Maybe you claimed tax credits you didn’t qualify for. Maybe you lost a dependent, or a child no longer qualifies for a tax credit you normally receive. Maybe you misreported income. Any of these can leave you with an unexpected tax debt.

Scott will go over your returns and find where the mistake was. He can then help you amend your returns or otherwise negotiate with the IRS to reduce penalties, fees, and the debt itself.

Your Deductions Were Wrong

If you don’t take the standard deduction, there’s a possibility that you don’t qualify for some of the itemized deductions you take. This is most common with Schedule C loss reports, which almost always get thoroughly reviewed.

If you have a tax debt because you claimed incorrect deductions, Scott will begin by analyzing your deductions and expenses to find ways to amend your return that lower your debt.

You Failed to Pay the Correct Taxes

It’s very common for business owners to forget to pay payroll taxes. They get behind once and then can’t manage to get caught up. The IRS will pursue this type of tax debt while collecting fees and penalties.

Scott will work to limit the fees, penalties, and interest you may have to pay, enabling you to pay down the principle.

Potential Results When You Hire a Tax Attorney for Your Back Taxes

When Scott starts working on your case, he’ll pursue every single avenue to help reduce or eliminate your tax liability and the strain on your finances. Potential outcomes include

Offers in Compromise

An offer in compromise (OIC) is one of the most valued outcomes. The IRS agrees to accept a smaller amount than you owe, lowering your liability and penalties.

Currently Not Collectible (CNC)

Occasionally the IRS will determine that you’re unable to pay based on your finances and other debts, and if this is an option, Scott will pursue it.

Debt Reduction

We’ll sit down with your tax returns and all the data to go over what you paid and what you should have paid, looking for ways to decrease your tax liability.

Levy/Lien Relief

If a levy/lien has been placed on your incoming wages or your property, Scott will work to find a solution that frees you from those actions.

Installment Agreements

An installment agreement will enable you to pay overtime, easing the immediate burden and giving you a chance for your finances to recuperate.

Penalty Reduction

The IRS often charges steep penalties, fees, and interest. These can add up quickly, but Scott will fight to get them lowered.
