  • Tax Planning

    Taxes can be confusing. Frequent changes in tax law make it hard to keep up with what you may owe. For those who have had problems with back taxes, the IRS is especially scrutinizing during tax season. Our tax planning service can eliminate unwanted surprises and alert you of liabilities you may not have known about. Becoming educated on your tax situation before taxes are due can help you better prepare to avoid penalties, interest and possible garnishments.

    If you are interested in our tax planning services, call (800) 991-5423 for a free consultation.

  • File for Bankruptcy

    Bankruptcy, while a source of relief, can also be confusing and stressful. The Tax Attorneys at 1-800-LAW-FIRM can help you confidently navigate the process. There are several ways of filing for bankruptcy, so we offer a free initial consultation in order to carefully identify the best approach for your situation. The two types of bankruptcy that are most common are:

    • Chapter 7 – This is a bankruptcy filing that allows the filer to discharge most or all of their debt. It is considered a “fresh start” bankruptcy.
    • Chapter 13 – This is a bankruptcy filing that allows for a reorganization of debts into a structured repayment program. Unsecured debts are discharged upon completion usually after a 3-5 year period.

    If you are interested in our tax planning services, call (800) 991-5423 for a free consultation.

  • IRS Hardship Filing - Stop IRS Collection Activity Immediately

    If you cannot afford to pay your back taxes to the IRS, you may be eligible to file a hardship which is currently not collectible defense. If successful, this would mean that your debts are not collectable by the IRS. In other words, your tax debt to the IRS would be put on hold until you are able to pay.

    This is a commonly used defense by our team of tax defense attorneys. A successful hardship defense will cause the IRS to stop all collection activity immediately including lifting bank levies and ending wage garnishments. This is a very favorable, common result for our clients. Utilizing our team of Tax Attorneys, you can find out if you are potentially eligible for hardship status. If you are, our attorneys can go through the necessary process and achieve that defense for you, eliminating the chance of costly mistakes.

    If you feel that you may need to file for hardship status, call (800) 991-5423 for a free consultation.

  • Offshore Accounts (OVDP)

    The IRS continues to pursue people who have offshore bank accounts which can be an intimidating and expensive process. Our National Team of Tax Defense Attorneys can help you disclose offshore assets with the lowest penalty possible. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) was passed with a goal to increase offshore account compliance. The U.S. Government has a huge deficit and one way to plug the gaping deficit hole is to pursue all offshore accounts. In 2012, the IRS started its current offshore voluntary disclosure program and has been able to collect over $5 billion in revenue since the inception of offshore compliance laws.

    Two potential benefits exist for taxpayers who enter the OVDP program:

    • You will avoid criminal investigation
    • Penalties are reduced for those taxpayer’s who comply with the OVDP requirements. In some instances, Taxpayers may pay no penalties at all.

    If you feel that you may need to disclose assets off shore, call (800) 991-5423 for a free consultation.


  • What is an IRS Lien?

    An IRS lien is a legal process by which the IRS will take control of your property (which can be a house, car, boat etc.). This ensures that when your property is sold the proceeds first cover the outstanding back tax you owe before you get a penny.

    If a back tax debt is not settled and if wage garnishment and IRS bank levies do not produce results in terms of repayment, the IRS will begin a disposal process for your assets. This means that they will sell your personal belongings in order to repay your debts. You and your family could be left with nothing if you allow the IRS to pursue liens. We will help you defend against IRS liens.

  • What is an IRS Bank Levy?

    An IRS bank levy is a legal means for the IRS to freeze your bank accounts. The IRS can freeze your bank accounts for up to 21 days to get you to pay the back taxes they are pursuing. The IRS can withdrawal as much cash as they need to cover your outstanding tax bill including penalties and interest. Failure to recognize this aspect of the IRS will land you in much more IRS debt than necessary. We will help you avoid this situation.

  • What is an IRS Offer in Compromise?

    This is a process during which an offer is made to the IRS for someone who owes considerable back tax and has little means of repaying the debt within reason. The IRS rejects many of these Offers in Compromise and we do not suggest considering this option unless your tax debt is considerable. For example, if you owe the IRS less than $10,000, the chances are that you would be able to repay that amount in a reasonable time through a repayment plan or wage garnishment. However, everybody’s situation is different and we are able to perform assessments for those who were interested in exploring this option.

  • What is an IRS Wage Garnishment?

    A wage garnishment – also called a wage levy – is a way that the IRS can forcibly collect money from you in cases when other requests for payment of back tax have not been successful. The IRS wage garnishment takes a fixed amount from your paycheck every pay period until your back taxes, penalties and interest are paid. When large amounts of back taxes are owed, we will negotiate with the IRS to make sure your wage garnishment is removed or is made affordable.

  • What is Power of Attorney?

    Power of Attorney is a legal term that is used when a client gives their attorney complete power to act on their behalf for the specified services the attorney is providing. With an IRS case, we need power of attorney to act on your behalf when dealing with your tax affairs so that we are authorized to negotiate with the IRS in your name. A power of attorney only allows us to represent you with your tax situation.

  • What can I expect from an IRS Tax Audit?

    During an IRS tax audit, IRS officers will be investigating your tax payment history and meticulously go through your records in order to find all potential liabilities owed to them. This can be an extremely stressful and intimidating experience. Getting professional help quickly is the most effective way to ensure your tax audit does not put your assets at risk.

  • What is IRS Form 433A?

    This is an extremely detailed form that the IRS will require you to fill out in a number of circumstances. The form requires you to declare every asset that you, your spouse or your business owns. This declaration can result in immediate action by the IRS to secure those assets in order to fulfill your back tax liability. We can assist in preparing Form 433A so that your assets are best protected.

  • What are the IRS Hardship Thresholds?

    The table below shows the IRS hardship threshold amounts allowable before garnishment and other forcible collection methods can be applied.
