Receiving a letter from a taxing authority can be disconcerting and stressful. There may be no need to pay any additional taxes as the taxing authorities are not always correct. We are here to assist you and help calm your fears. There are various services and avenues that we can and will follow when it comes to representation with a taxing authority.
The first step is to evaluate the government’s position. We want you to transmit the letter to us as soon as possible so we can evaluate the government’s position, assess the situation, and create a plan to resolve the matter quickly and at the least cost to you. We will explain the situation and give you all the options available to resolve the issue.
Most letters can be cleared with a written response or amended returns. Our tax professionals will do the research, help you prepare the documents needed, draft the letter or prepare an amended return. Michael Sargent and Kimberly Wenzel will request you to sign a Power of Attorney Form which will allow us to directly handle the matter and communicate with the taxing authority on your behalf.
If you do owe additional taxes and are unable to pay the taxes that you owe immediately, there are options for you as well. We will assist in completing Installment Agreement request which is a program of monthly payments used to pay the outstanding tax liabilities.
If you do not have the means to pay the tax bill and the prospects of ever having enough resources to pay the bill are low, we can assist you with an Offer in Compromise. This is a government program that allows for the elimination of tax liability for a smaller sum. We will help you access the probabilities of successful settlement of your debt.
