Resolving Problems With The IRS
Tax attorneys at TaxHelpers help in resolving tax problems with the IRS and California taxing agencies, including: The Franchise Tax Board (FTB), Employment Development Department (EDD), and State Board of Equalization (SBE).
We assist our clients with income tax, payroll tax, employment tax, and sales tax problems. TaxHelpers get involved at various stages of your tax problem. From preparing late tax returns, to negotiating offers in compromise, to dealing with tax liens, and wage garnishments, our tax attorneys aggressively and promptly resolve IRS and California tax problems for our clients.
An offer in compromise is an extremely popular government program. An offer in compromise is a process whereby the taxpayer offers the IRS or the State a reduced sum of money in order to settle a delinquent tax bill. Our tax attorneys have saved millions of dollars for our clients through the offer in compromise program.
A payroll tax problem usually arises when an overworked, or financially strapped business owner fails to file the required payroll tax returns, or turn over the payroll taxes withheld from employees. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to resolve payroll tax problems through an offer in compromise, without having to declare bankruptcy or closing the business.
A wage garnishment is devastating to a taxpayer. We understand how important a regular paycheck is to our clients and their families. We immediately contact the tax agencies to negotiate the release of any IRS or California wage garnishment. Often our tax attorneys are able to reduce the wage garnishments to a manageable level.
Tax liens are filed by the IRS and the state to protect their interests against other creditors. Although the taxing agencies are extremely reluctant to release or modify tax liens, often we can convince the government to subordinate a tax lien, thus taking a back seat to a lender and allowing the client to borrow money against his assets to satisfy the tax lien.
