Internal Revenue Service tax problems can be resolved even if you owe large amount and even if you haven't file in years. If you don't take care of the problem, the IRS may file a Federal tax lien, levy your bank account and wages and seize and sell your home, car or business.

Ever since the IRS Restructuring & Reform Act of 1998 was signed into law, the IRS has generally been much more reasonable. However, in the last couple years, there has been a significant increase in Federal tax lien filings. We have also seen large increases in wage and bank account levies.

e Taxes.com President & Founder Steve Kassel previously served as an IRS Revenue Officer in San Jose, CA. 21 years ago, Steve left the IRS to work for people just like you and was an Enrolled Agent, Licensed to Represent Taxpayers Before the IRS for 16 of those years. Steve testified on Capitol Hill before the National Commission on Restructuring the IRS.

That committee's recommendations formed the basis for the historic IRS Reform law. Steve regularly meets with top IRS officials to discuss the changes in the law and how those changes will affect you. 

Steve was extensively quoted in a front page article in the New York Times. That article made newspapers all across America. Steve was interviewed the following day by Charlie Gibson on Good Morning America. Worth magazine featured an article on the enforcement powers of the IRS in which Steve was the only tax practitioner quoted. Steve also appeared on Fox News The O'Reilly Factor. 

In some cases you can settle accounts for far less than the total owed (Offer in Compromise). However, you will not get an Offer approved without experienced professional help. The National Taxpayer Advocate's 2000 Report to Congress said that "We are also concerned about the significant drop in the percentage of accepted Offers from Fiscal Years 1999 to 2000". Most of the rejected Offers came from individuals that didn't understand the Offer in Compromise process. However, a considerable number of the rejected Offers came from professional "Offer mills" that submit Offers even though they know they can't possibly be accepted. The IRS just announced several significant changes to the Offer program. Make sure you have the most current information to ensure you get the most favorable response possible.

The vast majority of our client's Offers have been accepted and we won't submit an Offer unless we believe it will be accepted. Are you aware that a difference of just $100 on an IRS financial statement results in a difference of $4,800/$6,000 or more in the amount of your Offer? Now, more than ever, you'll need a competent tax professional to help ensure your Offer gets accepted for the least money possible.

Virtually all of the companies that advertise nationally NEVER let you discuss your case with a licensed tax professional! Other companies make illegal cold calls to people with Federal tax liens that have been filed against them. For your own sake, do business only with a licensed tax practitioner (Enrolled Agent, CPA or attorney) that is in compliance with IRS regulations. All of our tax professionals are experienced Enrolled Agents.

By offering specific solutions to tough problems, we can get you through this. Call us toll free at 800.714.1880 or go to our Free Tax Consultation page. We will take your case only if we can help you. IGNORING THE IRS IS THE WORST THING TO DO.

We answer only those questions concerning delinquent tax returns and delinquent tax payments. We will not answer any general tax questions.
