How Can I Fight IRS Debt?

There are many potential solutions to fight tax debt from the IRS or Illinois state taxes. An experienced tax debt attorney can help you navigate your options and apply to the right program for your situation.

Here are some of the programs available to resolve tax debt:

Offer in Compromise

Drowning in tax debt? You may find relief via an IRS Offer in Compromise, or OIC—an option that allows taxpayers to reduce outstanding IRS tax debts. We’ve guided countless clients through this program and negotiated their tax bills down to pennies on the dollar.

But be warned: The rules are inflexible and messing up can be costly. If you’re considering an Offer in Compromise, you need an experienced IRS debt lawyer who will fight for your rights, deliver the lowest tax bill possible, and be honest about what you can expect.

IRS Payment Plans and Installment Agreements

Did you know you can settle tax debt with an IRS installment agreement? This can help you pay off your tax debt within a predefined time limit, and finally rest easy knowing your tax woes have come to an end. There are 2 types of installments available:

Streamlined Installment Agreement

A Streamlined Installment Agreement may be the best option for paying IRS tax debt if your debt is below $50,000. Unlike other payment plans, if you qualify for a Streamlined Installment Agreement, you do not have to provide the IRS financial information such as your income, expenses, or equity in assets. However, the balance must be paid off within six years or before the Collection Statute Expiration Date. Interests and penalties may still be issued by the IRS until the full amount is paid.

Complex Installment Agreement

A Complex Installment Agreement is a payment plan for taxpayers who owe over $50,000. The balance must be paid off within 5 years (60 months) or before the Collection Statute Expiration Date. Interests and penalties may still be issued by the IRS until the full amount is paid.

With a Complex Installment Agreement, you must provide your financial information to determine a minimum monthly payment. The payment amount is calculated by subtracting monthly allowable expenses from your monthly gross income.

Our experienced tax debt attorneys can negotiate your monthly payment down to as little as possible, helping you finally find the relief you need from overwhelming tax debt.

Innocent Spouse Relief

Are you facing tax debt due to your spouse’s (or former spouse’s) actions? If you had no knowledge of their tax issues, you may qualify for Innocent Spouse Relief. This will reverse IRS collections of back taxes, penalties, and interest.

We’ve successfully helped many clients file for Innocent Spouse Relief. If the IRS is breathing down your neck, call our experienced tax attorneys today at (847) 580-1279 for a free and confidential consultation.

Tax Penalty Abatement

In addition to tax debt, you may incur tax penalties—most commonly for non-filing and non-payment. However, in some cases, you may be eligible for tax penalty abatement.

Penalties can add up quickly, making it even more difficult to pay off your tax debt. Penalty abatement can help reduce or eliminate these penalties, making it easier to pay off your tax debt over time.

Currently Non Collectible Status

There’s nothing worse than the IRS taking your hard-earned money while you’re struggling to make ends meet. If you are unable to pay your tax debt due to financial hardship, you may be able to apply for Currently Non Collectible status, which temporarily suspends collection efforts. This can give you time to get back on your feet and avoid more serious consequences.

Commonly Asked Questions About Tax Debt

Can a tax attorney negotiate with the IRS?

Yes, a tax attorney can negotiate with the IRS on your behalf to help resolve your tax debt issues. IRS debt lawyers have focused knowledge and experience in tax law and can negotiate with the IRS for a variety of tax relief options, including installment agreements, offers in compromise, and penalty abatement.

A tax attorney can also represent you in tax court and help you navigate the complex tax system.

We typically recommend hiring a tax relief attorney when your debt is $20,000 or more. For smaller amounts of tax debt, you may be able to navigate IRS payment plans on your own or use the help of a free tax clinic.

Call the tax attorneys at Gordon Law Group if you need help with your IRS debt! The consultation is free.

Do I need an attorney to help with tax debt?

While it is not required to hire an attorney to help with tax debt, it can save you substantial money if your tax debt is $20,000 or more. We frequently save clients thousands and even millions of dollars on taxes, penalties, and interest!

Tax attorneys have the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the complex tax system and negotiate with the IRS for tax relief options. Why spend your time on hold with the IRS or trying to understand complicated tax laws when you could have a trusted professional handle the matter for you?

An IRS debt attorney can also offer attorney-client privilege—a stronger form of confidentiality than a CPA or Enrolled Agent can provide.

How can I get my tax debt forgiven?

There are several ways to get tax debt forgiven, including through an offer in compromise, innocent spouse relief, and, in some cases, bankruptcy.

An offer in compromise (OIC) is a settlement with the IRS that allows you to pay less than the full amount owed. Innocent spouse relief is available to taxpayers who are not responsible for their spouse’s tax debt. Bankruptcy may also be an option for some taxpayers to discharge or reduce tax debt, although it must be done in a specific way.

It is recommended to consult with a tax attorney to find a course of action for your individual situation. Contact Gordon Law Group today for a free consultation!

How much will the IRS settle for?

The amount that the IRS will settle for varies depending on your financial situation and the amount owed. Generally, the IRS will consider factors such as income, expenses, and assets when determining the amount of a settlement. The rules for a tax settlement are very strict, so it’s important to calculate your offer correctly to avoid delays.

Our experienced IRS tax settlement attorneys can negotiate with the IRS on your behalf and help you reach a settlement that is favorable to you.

How do I get an IRS lien removed?

To get an IRS lien removed, you must pay off your tax debt in full or enter into a payment plan with the IRS. Once the debt is paid off or the payment plan is established, the IRS will release the lien.

The tax debt lawyers at Gordon Law Group are highly experienced with IRS and Illinois tax liens and can help get you back on track ASAP! Give us a call at (847) 580-1279 for your free consultation.

How much does it cost to hire a tax debt attorney?
