The Biggest Benefits of Hiring a Top IRS Tax Relief Company
The IRS is intimidating — that’s something almost every American taxpayer can agree on. On closer inspection, it can be easy to see why. Taxes are needed to help run the country and contribute to the betterment of our government, communities, states and more. And the IRS is the agency charged with collecting those taxes.
Because the IRS website and other agency material is filled with red tape and tax jargon, it can be difficult to understand every law, liability and limitation they present to you. Having someone in your corner is important when you’re dealing with the IRS, and this is especially true if you owe them money in some way, shape or form.
What exactly are the benefits you can receive from a professional tax relief firm? Here are some of the most important reasons to hire a tax relief firm when dealing with the IRS.
Protection of Assets and Income
If you happen to skip out on a tax bill or avoid filing your taxes for a while, the IRS can and will find ways to make you repay this debt. Wage garnishment and asset seizuresare two of their biggest tools for debt repayment, but both are avoidable. You do have options if you’re currently unable to pay your tax debt, but you may not know what they are. That’s where a tax relief firm comes into play.
Stopping Tax Liens and Levies
Most taxpayers don’t typically understand the difference between an IRS lien and levy — which in and of itself is a great reason to speak with a licensed tax relief specialist. In order to get either a tax lien or levy stopped or prevented, a close look at the facts and circumstances of your specific IRS Collection case should be given and compared to the options that the IRS Manual and Tax Code provide to taxpayers.
Interpreting Tax Law
Many clients come to us with specific sections of IRS website pages or forms highlighted because they don’t understand what they mean. Unfortunately, the IRS’s website is a very simplistic site when it comes to explanations of the Tax Code. Tax law is much more complicated and linguistically complex. A seasoned tax relief expert should help you avoid legalese and comfortably explain your tax problems and potential solutions in a clear, easy-to-understand manner.
Explaining IRS Processes
The IRS’s reasoning is at times a mystery to the average taxpayer. Even a simply task like trying to reach the IRS by phone is a chore…so why not hire someone who can completely take over your back tax case from start to finish? A licensed tax expert with a tax relief firm knows everything there is to know about the IRS and how they work, and this information can be utilized to reach the most favorable case resolution for you.
Finding a Favorable Solution
Every tax problem is different. It’s very rare you see the exact same case twice. That’s why we like to get to know each client, their business or work scenario and the intricate details of their tax debts and predicaments. Tax relief experts are there to find the most favorable solution to your tax debt problem so you don’t pay the IRS any more than you absolutely have to. Not every taxpayer will qualify to pay less than 1% of their IRS tax debt (like Bob), however every case does have a best case scenario. It’s the job of a qualified tax relief firm to determine yours and then pursue it.
The IRS may not take a person acting on their own seriously. It can be hard to get a seat at the table with the IRS without some clout and knowledge in your corner. Representation is important when dealing with the IRS, and many licensed tax relief experts specialize exclusively in “IRS representation” – that is, they become your Tax Representative and step into your shoes to protect you and your assets and negotiate the best solution to your tax problem.
Helping You Stay Off the Radar
Finally, no one likes to be caught in the sights of the IRS. When working with a credible tax relief firm, not only should the initial IRS problem be resolved, but you should also be given the knowledge of how to keep the IRS off your back going forward – this is why the “cause” of the tax problem should always be addressed, and not just the “symptoms”. Most taxpayers would agree that not having to deal with the IRS in the first place would be the best case scenario.
