What a Tax Attorney can do for you
Communicating with the IRS
If you are one of those people who have received a notice, you are all too familiar with that uneasy feeling and constant stress that comes over you. As if that weren’t enough, communicating with the IRS is an additional uncomfortable and daunting task. Usually you will not receive a response from IRS agents or if you do, they won’t thoroughly explain the correct way to file the requested paperwork. Because of these inconveniences you might miss deadlines and increase the amount of debt you owe. Why go through all that hassle to end up being penalized anyway? By hiring a tax attorney you will bypass this step entirely because tax attorneys have direct communication with the IRS. They are knowledgeable enough to work the system in your favor and get you the results in a fast and efficient manner. They can also draft emails or letters that are guaranteed to catch the attention of the IRS. Above all, a tax attorney can ensure that you file all the requested paperwork correctly and before the deadline so you won’t be penalized for something that you were unaware of.
Offer in Compromise
Another important reason to hire a tax attorney is for them to help you file an Offer in Compromise (OIC), which is a program the IRS offers for individuals who qualify to settle their tax debt for less then the amount that they originally owed. For taxpayers who are in over their head with their unpaid tax debt, this program could be the best option. The process may be quiet simple, but it is always wise to seek the advice of a tax attorney to double check that you are on the right path. For taxpayers who are not eligible to apply for the OIC program, but are going through financial difficulties should consult with a tax attorney to discuss what other options there are. The IRS has about two years to review, process and make a decision on your OIC application. This allows your tax attorney time to negotiate and explain your financial hardships to the IRS. It is also important to keep in mind that the more debt you are in, the less likely you are to be accepted into the OIC program. The program is the best way to get a fresh start and who doesn’t want a fresh start?
How to avoid a Tax Audit
What if you could correctly file your taxes and never even receive a notice from the IRS? a tax attorney this may very well be the case for you. A tax attorney isn’t just there to help you when you are in trouble, but they are also there to help prevent you from facing issues with the IRS. Most taxpayers are audited because they don’t know how to correctly file their taxes or they don’t understand what they are being asked to do. It is specified that if a taxpayer isn’t able to use the standard deduction method for filing taxes, they must itemize their deductions. These deductions lower the amount of your taxable income, but there are certain criteria that a taxpayer must be aware of when deciding to file a standard deduction or an itemized deduction. For the taxpayer who isn’t knowledgeable with tax terminology she/he is probably scratching their head confused as to what that even means. Would you rather waste time and energy reading about it and learning to do it on your own, unsure if it is even correct, or would you rather hire a tax attorney, lay on the couch while you kick your feet up on your table and relax after a hard work day with the comfort of knowing that a tax attorney is filing your itemized deductions the way the IRS requests it?
