Dealing with tax agencies can be confusing and intimidating. Understanding what options are best for your particular situation requires an in-depth knowledge of tax laws, policies, and procedures. If the tax agency has taken or is contemplating enforced collection, it is in your best interest to have someone on your side who understands your legal rights and who will work with and for you to protect those rights.
At Beacon Tax Solutions we are committed to helping our clients resolve their tax issues as quickly as possible. Our extensive experience in these areas enables us to work closely with you and the tax agency to reach the best possible resolution given your unique situation.
Many married taxpayers choose to file a joint tax return because of certain benefits this filing status allows. Both taxpayers are jointly and individually responsible for the tax and any interest or penalty due on the joint return even if they later divorce. This is true even if a divorce decree states that a former spouse will be responsible for any amounts due on previously filed joint returns. One spouse may be held responsible for all the tax due even if all the income was earned by the other spouse.
In some cases, a spouse will be relieved of the tax, interest, and penalties on a joint tax return. Each type of relief has different requirements and understanding those requirements requires extensive knowledge of the related tax laws, court cases and procedures. I can help you determine if you qualify for such relief and represent you through the process.
IRS Payment Plans and hardship determinations are driven by your unique financial situation. Understanding how to best present your situation to the tax agency is the key to obtaining the resolution you need. As a part of this process, it is most important to have someone representing you who understands these processes and knows when to exercise appropriate appeals when there are disagreements with the tax agency. My experience within the IRS and successful representation of clients over the past 14 years will enable me to secure the resolution you need.
An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you can't pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. At Beacon Tax, we will review and consider your unique set of facts and circumstances to help you determine if an offer is right for you.
A trust fund tax is money withheld from an employee's wages (income tax, social security, and Medicare taxes) by an employer and held in trust until paid to the Treasury. Congress has established large penalties for delays in turning over your employment taxes to the Treasury. As an individual, you may be personal held responsible for a business failure to pay trust taxes. If IRS proposes to assess you for unpaid trust taxes, you need an expert to help you navigate and appeal such proposals. Deadlines are critical in this process especially the ability to appeal. If your business has unpaid trust taxes or you have received a letter from IRS proposing to assess you trust taxes, call Beacon Tax now to secure professional help before it’s too late.
Many collection related actions taken by or proposed by the IRS can be appealed. While appeal timeframes can vary based on law and procedures, all are considered by the IRS appeals function which is charged with considering the interests of the government and the taxpayer. Understanding when and how to appeal IRS actions you disagree with requires knowledge not generally available to the general public. You need an expert on your side. Beacon Tax Solutions is here to help.
