Flint Tax Lawyer
Tax debt is overwhelming and may make you want to put off the inevitable, but when you’re ready to face your tax debt, reach out to a Flint tax attorney. Together, we’ll put your tax issues behind you.
Getting behind on filing or paying taxes is not unusual. Countless Americans fail to pay their taxes each year, but if you think that will make the government not notice you, you’re wrong. The IRS and the state of Michigan are savvy tax debt collectors. They will find you eventually—it’s only a matter of time.
If you’re like most people, you want to pay your taxes; you just feel overwhelmed with how much debt you have, and you can’t see a way out. The good news is that there is almost always a way to get your tax bill squared away. A Flint tax lawyer at our office can analyze your situation and come up with a solution for resolving your tax debt.
What Will Your Flint Tax Resolution Attorney Do?
Your Flint tax debt attorney will look at your unique situation to match you with a program offered by the IRS or the state for paying off back taxes. The main factors that your lawyer examines are as follows:
- Income or lack of income
- Total tax debt
- Other debt
- Personal situation, such as illness, disability, and family issues
- Back tax returns
Your tax attorney will then determine which program will work best for you. For instance, some people can handle making a payment on their taxes each month, but they can’t afford to make a large one-time payment. Others may be behind on filing back tax returns but might not actually owe any back taxes at all.
What Can Help Me Get Out of Tax Debt?
So, what methods can help you get your tax debt taken care of? The IRS or state will work with you as long as you remain in communication with them and are attempting to resolve your tax debt issues. Here are some of the possible tax-resolution methods your Flint tax relief lawyer will look into for you:
Offer in Compromise
Installment agreements are monthly payment options that allow you to pay off your tax debt over time. This is a great option for those who are employed and can make small monthly payments but aren’t capable of paying off a tax bill in one lump sum.
Currently Not Collectible
Some people aren’t able to pay their tax bill, but they have a legitimate reason why. A legitimate reason would be if you are ill and incapable of working or you are permanently disabled and are receiving government assistance. The IRS or state may agree to stop collection actions against you in such a case.
Penalty Interest Relief
As you probably already know, a tax bill can be made up of the amount of back taxes you owe plus penalties and interest tacked on.
In some cases—usually if you show good cause for being behind on your taxes—the government might agree to waive some or all of the penalties and interest that have accrued on your bill. If they agree, this can make it a lot easier for you to pay off your debt.
Lien and Levy Releases
When you have failed to communicate with the IRS and you aren’t paying your taxes, they can take action against you.
A few of the actions they can take include placing a lien on your property and levying your property. They can garnish your bank accounts or paycheck, and they can seize your personal property, such as vehicles and real estate.
Your tax lawyer in Flint can try to get liens or levies released by showing that you intend to pay off your debt in a different way and that you will continue to communicate with the IRS or the Michigan state government.
