IRS has Fresh Start program for those owing back taxes

April 15 has come and gone, and we hope your income tax filing went was timely and accurate. As Atlanta tax attorneys we work with dozens of taxpayers with issues concerning their taxes and we understand how stressful receiving a notice of an audit or any other tax matter from the IRS.

We also understand how easy it is tax problems to snowball. Especially if you own and operate a small business, we understand just how busy you are; after all, we run a small business ourselves. We know how you may put off taking care of an issue because you are busy, then you may forget and before long, that small problem has morphed into an issue of back taxes with the IRS and you have received a Notice of a Federal Tax Lien. What do you do now?

Whatever you do, don't panic. Instead, give us a call. While being hit with a federal tax lien is not an ideal event, it is not unsalvageable. The IRS Fresh Start program exists to help taxpayers with these problems, and we can work with you solve issues related to your back taxes.

The Fresh Start program offers a couple of options that will enable you to repay your back taxes and in some circumstances, the IRS may even withdraw a filed Notice of Federal Tax Lien. We can help determine if you may qualify for this option.

The IRS has also expanded access for taxpayers to making installment payments if you owe less than $50,000 in back taxes. For more complex situations, there is the Offer in Compromise (OIC) that may allow partial repayment of the tax obligation owed. We can represent you in these negotiations and work to obtain the best settlement available for your circumstances
