Are you facing tax problems as a result of an IRS audit? Have you been assessed taxes or penalties and need to negotiate proactively with the IRS to resolve the issue? The time to act is now, before the IRS takes serious action by garnishing your wages, seizing your assets, or filing liens against your property.
If you are a business owner, the IRS may even come after you personally for any unpaid payroll taxes due from your business. Don't wait until it's too late to take action! At The Wilson Firm, we specialize in resolving tax collection issues such as liens, levies, seizures, and wage garnishments.
Our experienced tax lawyers can defend against and challenge unreasonable assessments and collection actions, including filing tax liens against your home, levying your bank account, or garnishing your wages. We can also help with tax liabilities resulting from foreclosure, loan modification, and credit card negotiation, as well as innocent or injured spouse cases.
If negotiations with the IRS are not fruitful, our lawyers can challenge the process administratively through IRS Appeals, with the U.S. District Courts, or the U.S. Tax Court. We have successfully negotiated with the IRS to lower penalties, stopped collection actions, and given clients the time needed to get their financial affairs in order.
The following are examples of the types of collection matters we handle:
Liens, levies, seizures and wage garnishments: If you did not file a tax return or do not respond to notices from the IRS, the IRS will file a tax return for you as a single person with no deductions. This may result in a tax liability far greater than what you actually owe. The IRS can then take actions such as filing a tax lien against your home, levying your bank account or garnishing your wages. Our tax lawyers work to defend against and challenge unreasonable assessments and collection actions.
Tax liabilities from foreclosure, loan modification and credit card negotiation: You may incur tax liabilities for debt forgiveness whenever a bank or credit card company forgives debt that you owe. These amounts can be significant, particularly in the case of mortgage debt. The bank or other entity may issue a Form 1099 for cancellation of the debt. The forgiven debt may be treated as income by the IRS. Our lawyers can defend these determinations and avoid or minimize the amount of tax due from the cancellation of debt.
Innocent or injured spouse: If our lawyers can prove that you qualify as an innocent or injured spouse, you may not be held responsible for the tax obligations of your spouse.
Collection Due Process: If negotiations with the IRS are not coming to fruition, our lawyers can challenge the process administratively through IRS Appeals , with the U.S. District Courts, or the U.S. Tax Court.
