Do you owe the IRS more than $25,000? If so, it is time to contact Allen Barron and discuss a strategy to resolve your tax burdens as the IRS collection efforts are ramping up with external collection agencies and the threat of passport revocation. Allen Barron has successfully represented taxpayers before the IRS and California tax agencies to negotiate a resolution to seemingly unresolvable tax challenges. We have many tools available and the credibility with the tax agencies to negotiate alternative payment plans or other solutions that a taxpayer on their own cannot achieve.
In addition to its normal aggressive (and draconian) collection tactics, the IRS collection efforts now include 4 external national collection agencies. These agencies are governed by strict regulations, and under no circumstances should a US taxpayer ever agree to make a payment to anyone other than the US Treasury Department or the Internal Revenue Service directly. Unfortunately many scams will inevitably arise as word spreads about external collection agencies, but your safest bet is to seek the advice of our experienced tax collection attorneys and safely discuss your circumstances under the protection of the attorney-client privilege.
The standard IRS collection programs use a cost-of-living calculation that is based on the least expensive areas of the nation (such as Arkansas and Alabama). As a result, the amount the IRS allots for housing and utilities is not enough to provide even the most basic apartment rental here in San Diego. We work on your behalf to identify your actual income, expenses and prepare a strategy to approach the IRS or California tax agencies with a plan to make a lump sum offer or a payment plan which will ultimately eliminate your back tax debt. Our clients often express that they feel the weight of the world lifted from their shoulders and hope for their financial future after working with us on back tax debt.
If you owe more than $25,000 IRS collection efforts are ramping up and they intend to collect one way or another. Instead of surrendering your passport and having your wages garnished we invite you to call for a free consultation at 866-631-3470. There is hope and a path forward.
