What is tax resolution?

It is a little known fact that the Internal Revenue Service offers a program called Offer in Compromise where under certain circumstances, tax payers can settle outstanding tax liabilities for less than the actual amount which they owe. While the IRS does not proactively market this program to the public (for obvious reasons), tax relief is completely legal and is available by law to those who qualify.

 What is an Offer in Compromise?

In layman’s terms, an Offer in Compromise is a proposal to the IRS to settle your tax debt for less than you owe based on the doubt that the IRS will be able to collect the full amount owed to them within the statute of limitations which is 10 years. If you are not financially capable of paying back the IRS, you may be able to negotiate an Offer in Compromise, where you can settle your back taxes for less than you owe. If the IRS accepts your offer, you can pay the amount agreed upon, and all federal tax liens or levies are removed. Negotiating an OIC can last up to 12 months and can be very difficult to achieve. Only about 10% of taxpayers are accepted so it is recommended that you hire First Class Tax Relief to make sure that you get this issue resolved.

What can I do if the IRS has filed a lien against me?

A lien is a public record on your property that says you owe the IRS money. It tells creditors that the IRS has a claim on all your property, including property you buy after the lien is filed. If a lien is attached to your property, you cannot sell that property without a clear title.

What is the difference between an IRS levy and lien?

An IRS tax levy takes immediate actions against you. It requires the person receiving the levy to turn over all funds due you the IRS. This could be the money in your bank account, the paycheck from your employer, or your accounts receivable if you are in business. A tax lien is used as security for tax debt. It says that the IRS has the right to seize the property before other creditors. If the IRS has a levy against your property, they can actually take your property to satisfy that debt.
