IRS Forgiveness – IRS Tax Relief Options

Are there any decent IRS forgiveness programs out there?

Do you know how many Americans owe the IRS back taxes on their personal income? It might come as a surprise, but the IRS claims that over a million taxpayers owe them money.

So, how is the IRS ever going to collect on all of those back tax debts? They won’t. Not only that, but they can’t. With limited resources, a criminally understaffed employee-base, and a huge number of taxpayers with accrued debts, there’s simply no way the IRS can keep up. Because the IRS is unable to collect on all of those back taxes, IRS forgiveness programs were instituted.

Three things that are in your favor…

#1) Statute of limitations on collections: Did you know, under most circumstances, that there is a clock running on the IRS’s ability to collect back taxes from you? After the necessary time has passed, your debt is removed.

There are definitely situations where it would be more prudent to not enter into any deals with the IRS. After all, if your circumstances call for it, it’s possible you won’t have to pay back anything. If you’d like to learn when your tax debt expires without raising any red flags, click here to learn about our service that can tell you exactly what you owe and when your tax debt expires.

#2) The IRS Can’t Get “Blood from a Turnip”: There is no difference in how much you owe if you don’t have the money to cover your debts. It’s called “reasonable collection potential”. If you are dead broke — meaning you have absolutely no assets — your RCP is $0. If you were to offer the IRS more than $0, then — despite how absurd it might sound — offering the IRS $1 might be a good deal for them.

IRS Tax Forgiveness Programs

Currently Non-Collectable Status (CNC)

If your Reasonable Collection Potential is low and the assets you have aren’t worth anything or are inaccessible, you may be able to qualify for CNC. CNC means that you don’t have to make any payments to the IRS, aside from your current withholdings or estimated tax payments. CNC keeps the clock running, so if you are to remain in CNC for the duration of the statute of limitations, it’s quite plausible that you won’t have to pay the IRS anything.

Partial Payment Installment Agreement (PPIA)

An IRS partial payment installment agreement is what you may qualify for if you have too much of a Reasonable Collection Potential for CNC (in other words, when your income and assets are too high to reasonably land you in non-collectible status). An IRS partial payment installment agreement means that instead of not having to pay anything to the IRS, you will need to pay them something each month. Much like a mortgage or a car loan, you’re working on reducing your owed debt.

When entered into an IRS partial payment installment agreement, the same benefits apply as CNC — you are running down the collections clock and may get closer to being able to file bankruptcy or have the collection period expire and eliminate your debt entirely. If you think a PPIA might be the best program for your situation, it’s well worth taking the time to learn more about what constitutes a partial payment installment agreement.

If the amount you are paying does pay off the debt within the remaining collection period, that would likely be a regular installment agreement, not a PPIA. But make no mistake about it, negotiating an installment agreement may not be all that easy — the IRS much prefers to get its money sooner rather than later. It’s important to only enter into an installment agreement or PPIA that you know you can handle. Many taxpayers fall into the trap of being intimidated into a repayment schedule that they simply can’t afford.

Offer in Compromise — Doubt as to Collectability

There are a number of Offer in Compromise IRS Tax Relief options available with the IRS, but they each tend to be different beasts. The one that our IRS Tax Relief team would like to focus on is a specific type of offer — doubt as to collectability — the most common type of IRS tax forgiveness program the IRS Tax Relief team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will use to settle our clients’ IRS tax debts for far less than what is owed.

There are a number of tactics and tips for submitting a successful Offer in Compromise that the IRS will agree to, and it is definitely in your best interests to be aware of them. Understanding your situation and what you can do to convince the IRS that you’re working with them is the first step to removing their influence from your life.

THE IRS TAX RELIEF TEAM FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC. CURRENTLY HAS HAS A 95% CLIENT OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUCCESS RATE.

PER 2016 IRS STATISTICS, THE IRS APPROVED 42% OF ALL THE OFFER IN COMPROMISE SETTLEMENTS SUBMITTED.

WE LIKE OUR SUCCESS RATE.

The IRS Is Not In The Business Of Being Generous

The IRS doesn’t offer IRS forgiveness out of kindness or generosity. The IRS will forgive tax debts because the reached resolution is in their best interest. The key is to align yourself with the government’s best interests, but only when the outcome also works in your favor. Much like the necessity of understanding the importance of the word “compromise” in an offer in compromise, you have to be willing to meet the government partway.

As with all IRS tax debt problems and concerns, do not feel like you are alone. There are over a million people going through similar situations and help is available.

IRS Tax Relief – IRS Forgiveness – Offer in Compromise

If you owe the IRS and can’t pay, you may qualify for the IRS Debt Forgiveness Program. The IRS Forgiveness Program is officially called an Offer in Compromise. The Offer in Compromise program is the ultimate IRS Tax Relief option.

Under certain circumstances, financially struggling taxpayers can have their IRS tax debt partially forgiven. The IRS will never take 0 dollars as a settlement. The IRS will go as low as $100 as a total settlement. When the IRS considers “IRS Forgiveness”, the present financial condition of the taxpayer is of primary importance. That means the IRS cannot collect more than a taxpayer can pay. If any collection action by the IRS would force a tax debtor into a financial crisis, the IRS cannot collect the back taxes.

IRS Tax Relief – IRS Forgiveness – Offer in Compromise

Taxpayers that have the resources to pay only a partial amount of their tax debt can apply to the IRS government payment plan called an Offer in Compromise to resolve the remaining amount. Depending on the financial capacity of the taxpayer, the IRS significantly reduces the total debt to an amount that the taxpayer can pay. This reduced amount can be paid in a lump sum or in fixed monthly installments.

IRS Tax Relief – Fresh Start Initiative is an “Expansion” of the Offer in Compromise Program

To make it easier for taxpayers to qualify for an IRS Forgiveness in the Offer in Compromise program, the IRS has expanded their Fresh Start Initiative. Under these more flexible rules, taxpayers do not have to disclose extensive financial details to the IRS to judge their paying ability. The Fresh Start Initiative for IRS Forgiveness offers financially struggling taxpayers the following advantages:

  • The IRS now looks at only one year of future income for offers if they are paid in five or fewer months when calculating a taxpayer’s reasonable collection potential. This is down from previous four years. For agreements of six to 24 months, the IRS now looks at two years of future income instead of the previous five years.
  • Taxpayers are now allowed to make their student loans’ minimum payments for post-high school education loans guaranteed by the federal government.
  • Taxpayers may, under certain conditions, pay delinquent federal and state or local taxes in monthly installments if they cannot pay it in full.
  • The standard allowance for the Allowable Living Expense amount has been expanded. This allowance now includes credit card payments, bank fees and charges, and other miscellaneous allowances.

What Should You Do Next?

Understanding your IRS tax debt and dealing with the IRS isn’t easy to do alone, even with programs like IRS Forgiveness. Luckily, there are IRS Tax Relief professionals at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. who can help you navigate your IRS Forgiveness options.

IRS Garnishment – IRS Tax Relief

The IRS has the power to garnish, levy or legally seize any income you make to satisfy federal tax debt or taxes owed. IRS Garnishments can apply to your hourly wages, salary, commissions, and bonuses. The IRS will contact your employer directly, serve the IRS garnishment and require your employer to directly send the IRS a portion of your income. Your employer is required by law to comply with the IRS garnishment, typically within one full pay period of receiving the notice from the IRS. The difference between the IRS and most creditors, however, is that the IRS does not need to take you to court to get a judgment in order to garnish your wages, and the IRS can garnish more of your wages than a regular creditor can garnish.

The IRS Garnishment Process

When the IRS seeks an IRS garnishment on your wages for a tax debt that you owe, or use any other legal means to enforce payment of the tax debt that you owe, it will first send you a written notice that sets out the amounts that you owe, including the tax, penalties, and interest. This IRS garnishment notice should also provide you with a due date by which you must pay the balances in full. Assuming that you do not pay the balance in full, you later will receive another notice, entitled “Final Notice of Intent to Levy,” Once thirty days have passed from the time you have received the final notice, and you still have failed to pay the balance due, the IRS can proceed with the IRS garnishment of your income.

The Amount that an IRS Garnishment Can Garnish From Your Wages

The law places limits on the amount that a regular creditor can garnish from your wages. However, these normal limits do not apply to the IRS. Rather, the tax code requires the IRS to leave you with a certain amount of income after the IRS garnishment is enforced on your wages to pay your tax debt. The tax code contains a table that corresponds to the number of exemptions that you claim for tax purposes and sets forth the amount that is necessary for you and your family to pay for basic living necessities. Unfortunately, a garnishment by the IRS can amount to 70% or more of your income.

Stopping an IRS Garnishment

There are a number of different ways in which you can resolve your problem with the IRS. In order to avoid or stop a wage garnishment, you must get back into good standing with the IRS, either by paying your balance in full or entering into a tax payment plan or some other type of resolution.

You Could Enter Into an IRS Installment Agreement

The IRS will stop an IRS garnishment if you enter into an approved installment agreement to pay your tax debt in full over a series of monthly payment installments. As long as you can make the monthly payments and pay off the debt before the debt becomes uncollectible by the IRS, your installment agreement is likely to be accepted by the IRS.

Do An Offer in Compromise

If you qualify and are eligible for an Offer in Compromise, you can settle your debt with the IRS for less than the total amount that you actually owe, based on your financial situation. However, if you are facing an IRS garnishment, you may qualify for this type of IRS tax relief, and your IRS garnishment will stop while your case is being reviewed.

Stop an IRS Garnishment and Get Happy.

The IRS has the power to enforce an IRS garnishment, levy or legally seize any income you make to satisfy federal tax debt or taxes owed. IRS Garnishments can apply to your hourly wages, salary, commissions, and bonuses. The IRS will contact your employer directly, serve the IRS garnishment and require your employer to directly send the IRS a portion of your income. Your employer is required by law to comply with the IRS garnishment, typically within one full pay period of receiving the notice from the IRS. The difference between the IRS and most creditors, however, is that the IRS does not need to take you to court to get a judgment in order to garnish your wages, and the IRS can garnish more of your wages than a regular creditor can garnish.

This IRS garnishment notice should also provide you with a due date by which you must pay the balances in full. Assuming that you do not pay the balance in full, you later will receive another notice, entitled “Final Notice of Intent to Levy,” Once thirty days have passed from the time you have received the final notice, and you still have failed to pay the balance due, the IRS can proceed with the IRS garnishment of your income.

Be Placed Into Currently not Collectible Status Due to Financial Hardship

If you can prove to the IRS that the IRS garnishment or other collection action would prevent you from meeting the basic needs of you and your family, then the IRS may temporarily cease its collections efforts for months and even years. In this case, you must show that collection of the debt would be unfair because your financial circumstances are so bad. The IRS will require financials.

You Could Change Employers

If you change employers, your IRS garnishment will not proceed, and it will only be a matter of time before the IRS once again tracks your new employer down and reissue a new wage garnishment. This is only a temporary solution, but it can give you a few months of relief. THIS IS REALLY NO SOLUTION.

Temporarily Quit Your Job

Once again this is not a real solution to an IRS garnishment. If your employer will allow you to temporarily quit your job for a period of time, and later return to work, then this tactic will slow down the IRS as well. It will take some time for the IRS  to discover that you have returned to work at the same employer and reissue a new IRS garnishment to that employer.

File a Tax Levy (IRS Garnishment) Appeal

If you disagree with the tax levy in any way, you can file an appeal, even if it has been more than 30 days since you received the notice of intent to levy.

If you can prove to the IRS that the IRS garnishment or other collection action would prevent you from meeting the basic needs of you and your family, then the IRS may temporarily cease its collections efforts for months and even years. In this case, you must show that collection of the debt would be unfair because your financial circumstances are so bad. The IRS will require financials.

Offer in Compromise – How Much Money can an IRS Offer in Compromise Save Me?

WHAT IS AN IRS OFFER IN COMPROMISE?

The Offer-in-Compromise can be a life-saving form of tax relief for those who truly need it. On average people who settle their debt using an Offer-in-Compromise end up paying less than 20% of the actual amount they owed to the IRS.

Approved by Congress to aid financially struggling taxpayers, an IRS settlement through the Offer in Compromise (OIC) program can be the ideal tax debt solution for resolving your tax problem as it can result in significant savings.

In some cases, your financial situation may make it nearly impossible for you to pay off all your IRS tax debt, even when utilizing tax relief over the long term via an installment plan. In such situations, the IRS may be willing to accept an Offer in Compromise and significantly lower your IRS tax debt.

Here is how an IRS Offer in Compromise works:

  • Through the work of our IRS Tax Attorneys, the IRS acknowledges that there is no feasible way to pay off all your tax debt. This means that you do not have enough income to pay off your tax debt and do not have enough valuable assets that the IRS could seize.
  • Using the IRS guidelines for an Offer in Compromise, you offer to pay the IRS the maximum amount that you can afford even though that amount may fall far short of the actual tax debt
  • If the IRS accepts that the amount of your Offer in Compromise, the IRS will agree to compromise, settle and essentially lower your tax debt to match the amount you can pay
  • Once you have finished paying the agreed upon amount, your tax debt is considered “paid in full.” This is true even if the agreed-upon Offer in Compromise is only a small percentage of what you originally owed

95% OF FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC.’S CLIENTS HAVE RECEIVED AN IRS SETTLEMENT.

Our clients get positive tax relief results.

PER 2016 IRS STATISTICS: 42% OF THE OFFER IN COMPROMISE SUBMISSIONS

WERE APPROVED BY THE IRS.

WE LOVE OUR IRS SETTLEMENT RESULTS.

Getting Help with Offer In Compromise

Yes, a taxpayer can submit their own Offer in Compromise. Our team doesn’t recommend it if you are serious. To have a better chance of approval of your Offer in Compromise, one should utilize the assistance of an experienced IRS Tax Attorney for this complex process. The highly qualified, trained and experienced team at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. will work very hard to see if this is the best solution for your IRS tax debt.

To be eligible for an Offer in Compromise our IRS Tax Attorneys must demonstrate to the IRS that collection of the tax would create an economic hardship or would be unfair and inequitable.

IRS Tax Negotiation – Solving IRS Tax Problems

If You Owe Federal Income Taxes but Cannot Pay

How does a taxpayer negotiate with the IRS? If the thought of IRS enforcement sends chills down your spine, you can relax. IRS Tax Attorneys at Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc. specializes in helping you resolve your tax dilemmas. Depending on your financial circumstances and how much you owe, you may be able to make payments over time or pay a reduced amount, either in a lump sum or in installments. In some cases, you won’t have to pay your back tax debt at all, at least for now. In some cases, you can have your back tax obligations permanently forgiven

Installment Payment Agreement

If you can afford to make monthly payments to settle your tax obligations, an IRS installment agreement may be the best strategy you can take. However, the IRS may require for you to complete Form 9465: Installment Agreement Request and Form 433-F: Collection Information Statement by mail. A taxpayer should be careful what they disclose to the IRS as their main purpose is to collect past due income taxes the Department of Treasury.  If you have assets or income, you may want to consider contacting our tax relief team prior to submitting financials.  In addition, while you are making payments through a payment agreement, don’t look for any tax refunds – they will be appropriated to offset your past due to balance.

Partial Payment Settlement Agreement

If a taxpayer wants to negotiate a partial payment settlement agreement, a taxpayer will need to submit Form 9465 along with form 433-F and a letter explaining why you wish to be granted a reduction in your total back tax obligation. You will have to provide financial substantiation, and you may want to consider having all IRS installment agreements reviewed by an IRS Tax Attorney prior to submission. If your request is granted, you will make installment payments just as you would with a regular installment payment arrangement.

Offer in Compromise – The Ultimate IRS Settlement

When you see or hear those ads promising to settle your tax bill for “pennies on the dollar,” the program those ads refer to is the Offer in Compromise. There are three categories under which the IRS accepts Offer in Compromise requests:

  • Doubt as to Liability: The amount of tax assessed is incorrect
  • Doubt as to Collectability: This is the category most often used. The person filing under this category must demonstrate that he or she will likely never be able to pay the full tax obligation due to financial hardship or some other compelling reason.
  • Effective Tax Administration: Requests for relief under this category do not dispute the amount of the tax. Rather, the claim is that collecting the tax would create an injustice. Elderly or disabled taxpayers often use this category.

THE CATEGORY YOU SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH IS “DOUBT AS TO COLLECTABILITY”.

Traditionally, an Offer in Compromise involves tedious paperwork and long waits while the IRS processed requests. However, in 2011, the Fresh Start program was instituted which will provide additional relief and a more streamlined process under certain conditions. To request an Offer in Compromise, file Form 656: Offer in Compromise and Form 656-A: Income Certification for Offer in Compromise Application Fee and Payment.  Offer in Compromises have a very low acceptance rate, and you may want to consider hiring a professional to help your chances of success if you feel that you may qualify.

95% OF FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE, INC.’S CLIENTS HAVE HAD A SUCCESSFUL IRS SETTLEMENT.

PER IRS STATISTICS, IN 2016 THE IRS APPROVED 42%

OF ALL OFFER IN COMPROMISE SETTLEMENTS.

Tax Penalty Abatement

If you are able to pay your entire back tax debt, but just want a break on the IRS penalties that have been tacked on, the Tax Penalty Abatement program may provide tax relief. You must provide a compelling reason for requesting a tax penalty abatement, such as a death in your immediate family, long-term unemployment or significant property damage or loss due to a natural disaster. You can request a tax penalty abatement by writing a letter explaining your circumstances, by requesting an in-person interview with a tax professional or by filing IRS Form 843Claim for Refund and Request for Abatement. You only get one opportunity at an IRS tax penalty abatement, so, you better do it right.

Currently Not Collectible Status a/k/a Financial Hardship

If you simply cannot pay what you owe to the IRS, you may request that your account is placed in Currently Not Collectible or Financial Hardship status. You will need to provide detailed financial information through a Form 433A Collection Information Statement for Wage Earners and Self-Employed Individuals. If your request is granted, you will still owe taxes to the IRS, but collection efforts will be temporarily halted.Your circumstances will be re-evaluated under certain conditions and your stay of the collection could be lifted. If you owe less than $10,000, this is “the way to go”. If you owe more than $10,000, you should be looking for an Offer in Compromise settlement.

Waiting Out the Statute of Limitations

Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to wait out your tax obligations and have back tax debt wiped from your record. The statute of limitations for federal income taxes is generally ten years unless fraud is involved. But calculating the statute of limitations can be tricky. The clock does not begin to run until taxes are assessed by the IRS, and the clock stops temporarily if you file bankruptcy or if you file a dispute or a lawsuit against the IRS. If you intend to take this strategy, you must consult with an experienced IRS Tax Attorney to obtain accurate dates and other essential information.
