Many of our clients come to us having received multiple letters from the IRS regarding unpaid taxes. Lets face it, none of us want to hear from the IRS unless they’re issuing a refund. Just the word IRS strikes fear in the hearts of many Americans, and if facing a situation involving back taxes, it can be extremely intimidating.
Tax attorney Stephen Jurman, will carefully review your financial status and determine the best possible resolution based on your individual situation.
Problems with the IRS
If you owe unpaid taxes, there are a number of steps the IRS can take. The IRS is the most powerful collection agency in the country, and it has the ability to investigate all of your finances, and every aspect of your life. It’s not a situation that should ever be taken lightly or ignored. Here’s some of the steps the Internal Revenue Service can take when you’re behind on your taxes:
- Garnish your wages.
- Place a levy on your bank accounts or a lien on your home or other property.
- In addition to liens, levies and garnishment, the IRS also has the ability to enforce civil and criminal charges.
- People who don’t pay their taxes can find themselves paying high penalties and interest, and in certain cases may even face jail. Criminal tax issues include tax evasion and fraud, filing a false tax return and failing to file your taxes at all.
- It’s not just individuals who may face problems with the IRS. We can also help businesses if they’re facing a tax-related situation, or to avoid future problems with the IRS.
