I owe the IRS back taxes, the IRS hasn’t contacted me, what should I do?
Don’t ignore the IRS. I know you might say, but they haven’t called or sent any letters so why should I poke the bear? Well eventually they will catch up to you and by then things could be real bad. Owing back taxes to the IRS it can be an overwhelming feeling, and the penalties and interest just keep adding up daily making it worse. Many people I see in this situation take the Ostrich approach. They bury their head in the sand and hope it goes away. But this doesn’t work because I know from my experience with the IRS, they don’t go away on their own. In fact The IRS usually bullies and threatens people to pay up in full or suffer severe consequences. Most people don’t know that when dealing with an IRS problem there are options for resolution with an IRS tax debt such as;
- Affordable monthly payment agreements
- Penalty Abatement
- Offers in Compromise
- Uncollectable status or financial hardship
- Innocent spouse
We have settled many successful cases with the IRS where our clients:
- Did not really owe the tax in the first place but the IRS was demanding payment.
- Could not pay the tax owing after allowance for reasonable living expenses
- Would experience an economic hardship from unfair IRS collection.
