Q: What is an Offer in Compromise?
A: It is a tax relief is a program wherein the IRS will settle a tax debt, whether personal or business for less than the amount owed if a Taxpayer qualifies.

Q: Why would the IRS want to settle a tax debt?
A: The IRS understands there are situations in which they will not be able to collect the entire amount of tax a citizen owes no matter what they do or how hard they try. By agreeing to settle a tax debt, the IRS brings the Taxpayer back into the system. The Taxpayer is required to stay in compliance and pay their taxes on time after tax relief is granted. It’s a win-win situation for the Taxpayer and the IRS.

Q: How do I know if I qualify for tax relief?
A: Our tax counselors can quickly determine if you qualify for tax relief. Even if we determine that you do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise, you may still qualify other types of tax relief like Penalty Abatement, Innocent Spouse or Trust Fund Recovery. We can also arrange a manageable installment agreement with the IRS for you.

Q: I have a bank levy or garnishment on my wages. What can you do about that?
A: We can remove the levy in most cases on the same day you call us, if you qualify. We can also place a collection hold on your tax account to give us time to work out a tax relief solution for you.

Q: The IRS keeps sending me letters and calling me. I don’t know what to do or what to say to them.
A: At Priority Tax Relief we protect and represent you to the IRS. No more upsetting calls or threatening letters. This means that you will not have to speak to the IRS we will negotiate on your behalf and provide you with the relief you need now.

Q: I have unfilled tax returns and I have lost all of my records. Do I need to file them?
A: To qualify for tax relief, all tax returns must be on file with the IRS.
We can help you reconstruct your income and we will prepare all past due tax returns for you.

Q: What do you charge for your services?
A: Our fees are based on each individual case. The Services are provided on a flat fee bases with NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES. Our fee will cover all aspects of your tax relief case from start to finish. This includes all your research, documentation, paperwork, follow up negotiations and any hearings before the Appeals Division of the IRS.

Q: What about these commercials I see that promise to settle my case for pennies on the dollar?
A: When most people hear the phrase pennies on the dollar, they think 2 or 3 pennies on the dollar. You will notice that the advertiser does not mention how many pennies on the dollar they can settle your case for. Some citizens indeed qualify to settle their cases for 2 or 3 cents on the dollar. The IRS average settlement is for 12 cents on the dollar. Depending on your circumstances, you may qualify to settle for more or less.

Q: Can the IRS take my house?
A: The IRS often threatens taxpayers with seizures of their home, cars and retirement accounts. We can stop these threats and provide the protection you need.

ENTRY 2 : TAX TIPS

Did you end up owing taxes this year? The vast majority of Americans get a tax refund from the IRS each spring, but those who receive a bill may not know that the IRS has a number of ways for people to pay. Here are nine tips for taxpayers who owe money to the IRS.

  1. If you get a bill this summer for late taxes, you are expected to promptly pay the tax owed including any penalties and interest. If you are unable to pay the amount due, it is often in your best interest to get a loan to pay the bill in full rather than to make installment payments to the IRS.
  2. You can also pay the bill with your credit card. The interest rate on a credit card or bank loan may be lower than the combination of interest and penalties imposed by the Internal Revenue Code. To pay by credit card contact one of the following processing companies: Official Payments Corporation at 888-UPAY-TAX (also www.officialpayments.com/fed) or Link2Gov at 888-PAY-1040 (also www.pay1040.com) or RBS WorldPay, Inc at 888-9PAY-TAX (also www.payUSAtax.com).
  3. You can pay the balance owed by electronic funds transfer, check, money order, cashier’s check or cash. To pay using electronic funds transfer you can take advantage of the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System by calling 800-555-4477 or online at www.eftps.gov.
  4. An installment agreement may be requested if you cannot pay the liability in full. This is an agreement between you and the IRS to pay the amount due in monthly installment payments. You must first file all returns that are required and be current with estimated tax payments.
  5. If you owe $25,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest, you can request an installment agreement using the Online Payment Agreement application at IRS.gov.
  6. You can also complete and mail an IRS Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request, along with your bill in the envelope that you have received from the IRS. The IRS will inform you usually within 30 days whether your request is approved, denied, or if additional information is needed. If the amount you owe is $25,000 or less, provide the highest monthly amount you can pay with your request.
  7. You may still qualify for an installment agreement if you owe more than $25,000, but a Form 433F, Collection Information Statement, is required to be completed before an installment agreement can be considered. If your balance is over $25,000, consider your financial situation and propose the highest amount possible, as that is how the IRS will arrive at your payment amount based upon your financial information.
  8. If an agreement is approved, a one-time user fee will be charged. The user fee for a new agreement is $105 or $52 for agreements where payments are deducted directly from your bank account. For eligible individuals with incomes at or below certain levels, a reduced fee of $43 will be charged.
  9. Taxpayers who have a balance due, may want to consider changing their W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, with their employer. There is a withholding calculator available on IRS.gov to help taxpayers determine the amount that should be withheld.
