Tax Relief for Individuals and Business Owners
What is Tax Relief?
Tax Relief is a laymen's term for a group of payment or debt reduction options provided to individual and business taxpayers by the tax code. The settlement and debt handling options are designed to help taxpayers, who have gotten behind on their taxes, to pay off their debt in a way that doesn’t add additional financial hardship.
One of the most significant breaks are found with the Offer in Compromise, sometimes referred to as "settling for pennies on the dollar". However, there are also alternative programs that will reduce your payments to a low monthly installment or even no monthly installment for qualifying taxpayers.
If you owe the IRS, you might be wondering how you will be able to pay your taxes in full without accumulating more and more interest and penalties.
We provide tax relief from aggressive enforcement actions taken by the IRS, including:
Collection Agency Harassment
We can guide you through complex tax law and help you understand the options available for you.

Offer in Compromise (OIC)
There are several benefits of negotiating an Offer in Compromise, including relieving the stress and burden of tax debt and giving you the freedom to create additional streams of income, purchase that new home and simply create the life you love without worry of levy or seizure.
The most obvious benefit is that you pay less upfront by creating a repayment amount based on your ability to pay today versus your past income and asset history. In the process of the settlement, late fees and other types of penalties are, in essence, removed so that you are simply paying what you owe rather than additional money. And more often than not, you are paying only a small percentage of what you originally owed.
With an Offer in Compromise, you avoid the placement of additional liens and levies against your home, car, or business while your offer is being evaluated. Any liens already in place will be removed within 30 days of the full settlement of your accepted offer.
If you select our firm to handle your settlement, we stay on your account and monitor your transcripts until the lien withdrawal has been submitted to the public records department.
We Have Your Back When it Counts Most
An installment agreement helps people who are struggling to pay their taxes get back on their feet and stay compliant with current obligations at the same time. This program makes it easier for you to pay the IRS and will fit within your budgeted and discretionary income in most cases.
Often, the IRS will compute a payment amount that exceeds what you can afford to pay based on your current living situation. In those cases, as your advocate, we will step in and negotiate an alternative that will allow you the time to make the necessary changes to allow you to meet your obligation while maintaining your necessary living expenses.
In some cases, we can set up an installment agreement without having liens placed in public records affecting your credit and lifestyle. However, if you have already had a lien or levy applied, you will need to demonstrate compliance and consistent payment to request withdrawal of the lien prior to paying the debt in full. This is why it is important to hire us sooner versus later.
Because Some Things are More Important
Currently Non-Collectible (CNC) Status
Currently non-collectible status allows the taxpayers to avoid any active collection enforcement for a limited period of time while they are unable to pay their tax debt.
To qualify for this status, the taxpayer must show that they do not have sufficient income to cover the basic and necessary living expenses. Because the law requires that this group of taxpayers are protected from levies, garnishments, etc; by meeting this standard, the taxpayer avoids the requirement to make any payments on the account during this time and for as long as they are in this condition.
We can help you stop worrying about the IRS and focus on what is the most important.
