Back Taxes

When you do not pay your personal or business taxes at the federal, state and/or local levels, you are failing to comply with existing tax laws and you may find yourself in need of IRS back taxes help. Unpaid back taxes are a serious issue. If you owe back taxes to the IRS, swift and appropriate action is vital to prevent your income and assets from being levied or seized.

Penalties & Interest

Taxpayers facing large tax liabilities often see their debts increase significantly due to added penalties and interest. The IRS often applies various penalties and interest to unpaid back taxes making it more difficult for taxpayers to pay their federal tax debt.

Payroll Taxes

If you owe payroll taxes to the IRS, the agency can come after your business assets and your personal assets. A Trust Fund Recovery Penalty (TFRP) is a civil penalty assessed by the IRS against a party, or parties, deemed responsible and willful for not turning over certain employment (payroll) taxes to the government in the form of payroll tax deposits. The total unpaid trust fund taxes of a corporation or LLC can be converted to a TFRP against one or more parties (usually the business owners), at  which time a business tax liability becomes a personal tax liability of the responsible party. After this occurs, the IRS will begin the collection process against the individual taxpayer.


A tax lien is the government’s way to secure its interest in your assets and facilitate collection of your tax liability. In the simplest of terms, it’s a last resort action used to secure the payment of your individual or business taxes. When you have unpaid federal or state income taxes, the federal and state governments can legally file a tax lien. If you have unpaid local income or property taxes, local governments may also file a tax lien in that case. After a lien is properly filed, the government has a right to all of your property, as well as any property or rights to property you acquire thereafter. Once its interest in your property is secured, the government can levy or seize your property as a means of collection. In addition to the prospect of a levy or seizure, taxpayers will often witness a significant decline in their credit score and an increase in difficulty in obtaining a loan or line of credit once a tax lien is filed.


As one of several means of collection, the IRS often issues a variety of tax levies against taxpayers. A levy is the IRS’s way of getting your money and your immediate attention. Levies do serious damage to a taxpayer. A levy can be mailed to your bank, your accounts receivable, and even issued to your retirement account.

Wage Garnishments

When an IRS levy is sent to your employer it is called a wage garnishment. A tax levy or wage garnishment is often used by the IRS as a method of enforced collection aimed at garnering the cooperation of a taxpayer and may be issued prior to more intrusive actions such as seizure and sale of a taxpayer’s assets.  The IRS has no restrictions when it comes to levies. They can be issued on bank accounts, autos, stocks, bonds, boats, pension checks, paychecks, and even Social Security checks.

Penalties & Interest

Taxpayers facing large tax liabilities often see their debts increase significantly due to added penalties and interest. The IRS often applies various penalties and interest to unpaid back taxes making it more difficult for taxpayers to pay their federal tax debt.

Get Help With Back Taxes

When you do not pay your personal or business taxes at the federal, state and/or local levels, you are failing to comply with existing tax laws and you may find yourself in need of IRS back taxes help.

The Fresh Start initiative makes it easier for individual and business taxpayers to pay back taxes, avoid IRS tax liens, and get tax relief from the IRS.

Remove Penalties & Interest

Taxpayers facing large tax liabilities often see their debts increase significantly due to added penalties and interest. The IRS often applies various penalties and interest to unpaid back taxes making it more difficult for taxpayers to pay their federal tax debt.

Work Out a Payment Plan

An installment agreement is an agreement between the IRS and the taxpayer to pay down an existing debt in smaller, more manageable amounts, over time. The agreement keeps the IRS from levying as long as the payments are being made in full and on time. Without an agreement, the IRS may take all but a small amount of your paycheck.

Work Out an Offer-in-Compromise, aka Tax Settlement

An offer-in-compromise, or OIC, is a contract between the IRS and a taxpayer that settles back taxes for less than the total amount due. Similar to installment agreements and other IRS tax relief programs, taxpayers need to meet stringent compliance and collectibility requirements in order to qualify.

Get Approved for Financial Hardship Status

If during an investigation, the IRS determines that you cannot pay any of your tax debt at the present time, the IRS will temporarily suspend collection against you and place your account in “currently not collectible” status, or CNC. Taxpayers should be aware that penalties and interest continue to accrue during this time and that their case can be reopened in the future, should their financial situation change. In most cases, it is common for the IRS to schedule an automatic two-year follow up on your case after it is first placed in uncollectible status.

Submit Unfiled Tax Returns

Unfiled tax returns (aka delinquent returns) are a common occurrence with taxpayers and are considered a high priority by the IRS. Along with unfiled returns, taxpayers often also have an outstanding tax liability or tax lien that need to be addressed. This is because the IRS will typically file a tax return on behalf of a taxpayer, using the income information they have on record, and then begin collection actions. These IRS (or State)-prepared tax returns are called “substitute-for-returns”, or SFRs. The resulting tax balances are almost always overstated and can be adjusted by filing an original return. Taxpayers in this situation should be aware that negotiating with the IRS cannot commence until all delinquent tax returns are filed (but not necessarily paid). Before the IRS can consider a tax settlement or a payment plan, the agency will demand that all tax returns be filed.

Get Help With an Audit

A recent IRS trend shows correspondence and in-person audits on the rise, especially among higher income earners. Common causes for being selected for an audit include random selection, a mathematical reconciliation error, document matching, unusual or excessive deductions, tax returns filed in bulk, or a related audit or collection being worked by the IRS, among others.

Learn About the Innocent Spouse Program

Spouses left with a joint tax liability as a result of financial neglect or other adverse actions by their spouse (or ex-spouse) may qualify for tax relief by utilizing the IRS’s Innocent Spouse program. The IRS provides three different kinds of relief under this program; Innocent Spouse Relief, Relief by Separation of Liability, Equitable Relief. Taxpayers that qualify for relief will have the joint liability fully or partially removed from their name and, in cases of full removal, the innocent spouse will no longer be associated with or responsible for the outstanding tax liability. Taxpayers should note that Innocent Spouse Relief is different than Injured Spouse Relief. You may be eligible for relief under injured spouse provisions if you filed a joint tax return and all or part of your portion of the overpayment was applied or offset to your spouse’s past-due federal tax, state income tax, child or spousal support, or a federal non-tax debt such as a student loan.

Very good experience and glad I made the decision to use this company. Michael was professional and courteous in all of my dealings with him. My tax dilemma was quickly resolved and Michael even waived much of his normal fee. Where else have you heard of a business doing that? Without question, I would recommend Landmark Tax Group for anyone seeking a fair resolution for a tax problem.

Great service! Michael really knows his stuff and goes above and beyond. They delivered more than they promised and helped me get an AWESOME resolution to my case.  I highly recommend them.

I worked with Landmark Tax Group to help sort through my LLC, 501c(3) and personal finance questions. They were prompt, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. This was the best experience I’ve had with a tax company. I would HIGHLY recommend them!

Great service!!! Very diligent and most importantly high integrity. One of those rare occasions when someone is looking out for your best interest.

Michael was fantastic! He understood my case very quickly, got right to work and was super prompt with communications. His professionalism and his friendly demeanor immediately put me at ease. I whole heartedly recommend contacting them if you’re in need of advice and assistance.

I received great advice in how to deal with the FTB, i don’t review often, but when someone is honest and legitimate, they do deserve a review.  My questions were answered, and if i didn’t quite understand, Micheal was more than willing to give me follow-up answers to better help me.  I highly recommend Landmark Tax Group, just for the mere fact that they treat you as a human being, Not a cash cow.

I had some returns from previous years to complete after receiving a hefty bill from the California Franchise Tax Board.  Michael was prompt in answering my questions and very helpful and reassuring.  We had several back and forth communications and this was all done for free since they do not prepare tax returns.  He gave me some contacts and advice and now I’m on my way to getting my situation resolved.  I’m very thankful for his advice and guidance.

While Michael’s scope of practice meant that we ultimately could not work directly to resolve the issue I was having, he was very prompt, professional, generous and kind in taking time out of his schedule to consult with me, refer me to his network of colleagues- not just once, but a second time even months after. Some professionals are just after services and compensations but Michael strikes me as someone who genuinely cares about your situation and wants to see to it that it gets resolved. These other reviews speak to that as well. You never want to be in a situation where you need to be looking up tax help, but God forbid you ever are, Michael is the person you want in your corner!

Michael and Landmark Tax Group were simply awesome. I like so many others had a year’s old tax issue arise with California FTB. I no longer live there which compounded the stress of the situation. The state had seized monies and filed a lien. After a call to an online tax relief place and some sketchy phone calls I was so happy to find Michael and immediately felt in good hands… at a time of considerable panic.
Fast forward to today and with his help I am totally debt free. He saved me $23,000
I highly recommend Michael and Landmark Tax Group

Michael Raanan is an angel! Michael went above and beyond for me. He was very knowledgeable, professional and very thorough! He is easy to talk to and amazing at what he does. I have a feeling that everyone at landmark tax group shares this way of professionalism! I highly recommend coming here for any and all of your tax help. They will help you and you will be more than pleased with them. 🙂

After calling the other highly advertised tax assistant agency’s and being disappointed with how they responded to my tax matter, I feel fortunate to have found out about the Landmark Tax Group. Michael was very understanding of my situation, and I felt very comfortable dealing with him. He was very knowledgeable and professional in handling our tax issue in a timely manner. I would highly recommend The Landmark Tax Group to anyone who needs assistance in dealing with the IRS.

Wow, just wow. I called Michael today to ask about some major tax issues I had with a defunct corporation I’d started years ago. Michael talked to me for about half an hour, walking me through options and generally helping me understand my options.

Because of him, I’m going to rest nicely tonight for the first time in weeks. It was great to hear that he used to work in IRS collections for 8 years too… which made me feel a lot more secure in his answer.

In all, I’m completely stunned by the level of service he gave to a random stranger who called in and wasn’t going to turn into any revenue for him. I have to imagine that his level of service for actual customers is unreal.

Fast, dependable, reliable, full transparency.  Michael Raanan of Landmark Tax Group allayed my fears spending the rest of my senior years paying my tax debt.  As a result of his extensive knowledge of the tax code, the right questions to ask, and his dedication to my case, I had information, resolution and a plan of action within 24 hours, start to finish.  Amazing!  I highly recommend Landmark Tax Group!

We were very pleased with the expert assistance we received from Michael Raanan at Landmark Tax Group.  In a matter of months we had a resolution to our IRS tax issue.  He was very knowledgeable, professional, explained things in easy to understand terminology & was very easy to discuss our tax issues with.  We called around to other tax groups & just felt the most comfortable speaking & working with Michael.  We are happy to recommend him & his firm.

Great place for tax [relief] advice. Even if they don’t see a need for you to use and pay for their service, they’ll still give you excellent advice and direction at no cost. They are worth a call.

Michael Raanan represents the highest level of professionalism, integrity, decency, and true concern for his clients. His advice every step of the way was right on target.  The end result was a savings of $13,000 on my taxes.

I have already referred him to the other members of my financial team and have complete confidence in referring any clients to him. He is a shining star in his field.

Oh, did I mention how reasonable his fees are? Exceptional considering the amount of attention he provides.
