Drury, and best selling author of “Protect and Defend” posted a new blog on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “Before hiring a tax resolution attorney --Can you vow to be compliant from this moment forward? The IRS is a harsh taskmaster when it comes to collecting back taxes. Lance Drury advises prospective clients to think twice before agreeing to a payback plan.Drury says, “ Once you’ve entered into an agreement with the IRS they expect you to keep it.” The consequences of non-compliance are costly. According to Drury, “If you do not remain compliant, the IRS will not be cooperative with you, even if you hire the best tax attorney. And worst of all, they will go after any assets you have. They can garnish your wages, put a lien on your property, seize bank accounts, and do just about anything to get the money you owe them.” Hiring an attorney is helpful, but not the end-all or be-all of tax troubles.

Before hiring a tax resolution attorney -- Can you vow to be compliant from this moment forward?

Before you decide to hire any tax resolution attorney to help you with your IRS challenges, there is one very important fact you’ll want to remember. From the moment you enter into an arrangement made by the attorney with the IRS, you will expected to be compliant from that moment forward.From this moment forward…What does compliance mean? It means that you must
  1. File your taxes on time.
  2. Pay your taxes on time.
  3. If you are making quarterly payments, you must pay your estimated taxes on time.
  4. If you have a payment schedule, you must make your payments on time.
If you do not remain compliant, all the work your attorney has done for you will be for nothing. Once you’ve entered into an agreement with the IRS they expect you to keep it. So, the next years’ taxes must be filed on or before the due date. If you need an extension, the extension must be filed on time.If you do not remain compliant, the IRS will not be cooperative with you, even if you hire the best tax attorney. And worst of all, they will go after any assets you have. They can garnish your wages, put a lien on your property, seize bank accounts, and do just about anything to get what you owe them. So, as you consider the attorney you want to work with, be sure to talk about compliance and make sure that whatever agreement your attorney strikes with the IRS that you can live up to it.Tax Attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R.

That is the smartest thing you can do. But, please, don’t stop now. Even though you do not have to deal directly with the IRS, you still have work to do. Even the best tax resolution attorney cannot help if you do not provide the appropriate paperwork on time.Patience is a virtue the IRS requires of everyone, especially when they owe you money. However, when it comes to owing them, they do not have any patience whatsoever. If you fail to supply the appropriate information to your tax resolution attorney, you are simply wasting money and time and digging yourself into deeper trouble with the IRS.

Caution: What you say to the IRS could come back to bite you in the assets

Everyone has heard the expression, "never say never." However there is one instance where you'll want to throw that expression out. If you have challenges with the IRS, there truly are things you NEVER want to say. If you don't immediately say, "I am retaining the services of a lawyer", at least remember a few things you never want to say. Because what you do say to the IRS can come back to bite you where it really hurts: In the assets. First: Remember no one is immune to IRS troubles. Being at odds with the IRS is one of the things in life everyone goes to great lengths to avoid. Unfortunately it happens - and far more frequently than the average person might expect. People from every socio-economic group find themselves owing money to the IRS. It happens to people you know are decent and responsible and to those you might judge as being less than exemplary. Rich and poor alike make mistakes that can land them owing back taxes. No one is immune. If you find yourself faced with IRS problems, do not despair. While we've all heard horror stories about people whose lives have been ruined by federal tax issues, if you can keep your wits about you and remember a few things from the start, you can avoid devastating consequences. Always: Think "never" when dealing with the IRS Never volunteer any information freely. Unless the IRS representative specifically asks for information do not under any circumstances volunteer what you think may be useful. If you find yourself in conversation on the phone or in person with an IRS representative do not be fooled by friendly demeanor and think that you have found an understanding ear. This is how many people get themselves into deeper troubles and the IRS counts on this. You have the right to say nothing and you have the right to retain an attorney. Never lie: Telling the IRS something that is not true is perjury. Perjury is a crime that could lead you to jail time. The IRS becomes suspect of anyone who lies and is not inclined to cooperate. Never answer a question that you do not understand. Be polite and respectful and remember that you have the right to say nothing. Never threaten: Stay calm, do not panic, and by all means do not say anything threatening to an IRS agent. No matter how angry you are, especially if it is an IRS mistake, it is always better to say nothing at all than to say something that can lead to even worse consequences. Never invite: Do not invite the IRS to come to your home or office to look at your books or to discuss matters. If an IRS agent arrives at your door, you will want to retain the services of an attorney immediately. Never make promises: you can't keep. For instance, monthly payment amounts. If you miss a payment you may miss out on future leniency. Preventing yourself from losing the things you value most - your marriage, family, business, as well as whatever financial resources you may have-- is what you want to keep in mind when dealing with the IRS. So start by acquiring one of the greatest assets you can have in this situation. Hire an exceptional tax attorney.

What You Don't Say To The IRS Could Be Your Saving Grace

Being at odds with the IRS is one of the things in life everyone goes to great lengths to avoid. Unfortunately it happens - and far more frequently than the average person might expect. People from every socio-economic group find themselves owing money to the IRS. It happens to people you know are decent and responsible and to those you might judge as being less than exemplary.

While we've all heard horror stories about people whose lives have been ruined by federal tax issues, if you can keep your wits about you and remember a few things from the start, you can avoid devastating consequences. Things you should never, ever say to the IRS Never voluntarily tell the IRS anything unless they specifically ask. If you find yourself in conversation on the phone or in person with an IRS representative do not volunteer information. Do not be fooled by friendly demeanor and think that you have found an understanding ear. This is how many people get themselves into deeper troubles with the IRS. You have the right to say nothing and you have the right to retain an attorney. Never tell the IRS something that is not true. Perjury is a crime. The IRS does not forgive any mistakes if they feel you have been dishonest. Never answer any question that you do not understand. Once again, you have the right to say nothing. The one thing the IRS does understand is the phrase, "I've decided to retain the services of an attorney." Enough said!
