It’s ridiculous that a taxpayer might not be able to count on getting a right answer from the IRS regarding tax questions, especially considering that the IRS is the agency that is charged with the task of enforcing tax laws. However, you may find yourself in a position where you’re already past the point of needing help with your tax returns. Filing this year’s tax returns may not be the issue. The issue for you is:
- Maybe you haven’t filed at all. perhaps for 2 or 3 years or more.
- Maybe you’ve filed but haven’t paid the tax – and the IRS is sending you letters that are increasing in frequency and the language regarding collection is getting sterner.
- Maybe you know that on previous tax returns that you withheld or falsified information and you’re afraid of what will happen when you get caught.
- Maybe you’ve reached the point where the IRS has already placed a lien on your property, and you’re concerned that the next step is for them to garnish your wages, raid your bank account, and/or seize your property
If you’re in any of these positions, you need to speak with a qualified tax attorney as soon as humanly possible. Ask yourself…if the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center cannot correctly answer simple tax questions more than 57% of the time, do you think that they are going to be able to answer a question about a complicated matter such as a lien on your property…the Statue of Limitations, bankruptcy or other complicated legal matters. Do you think that your accountant – a person who deals with taxes for 3 months out of the year and works with balance sheets and financial reporting for the rest of the year – is most qualified to help you fight and keep the IRS from destroying your financial life? Do you think that an attorney – one who spends most of his time dealing with personal injury suits, corporate law, or criminal law – is somehow familiar with the ins-and-outs of the complicated tax system of the United States, which changes from year to year? Would just any attorney be familiar with previous tax decisions that could help your case? No – it’s clear that a qualified Tax Attorney is your very best choice in this situation. Don’t make a fatal mistake in choosing the very best help with your IRS problems.
