Can I deal with the IRS myself?

It is possible and feasible to attempt working with the IRS yourself. However, it is not the most conducive way to resolving your tax liability. Almost 90% of Offer In Compromises are subject for rejection simply because an individual does not understand the proper formatting of the forms, publications and the organization of those forms. This is not taking in consideration the art of negotiating with the IRS. One of the most critical parts in an Offer In Compromise, especially in appeals, is talking and negotiating with the IRS. Guarding Tax Consulting has years of experience in specializing in resolving cases for individuals and companies. Guardian Tax Consulting understands exactly what the IRS’s requirements are for filing Offer In Compromise packages and other arguments. We have also built relations with certain IRS Practitioners and we know their personalities. This goes a long way! Handling a case with the IRS is not much different than a case in court. You should have representation!

What if the IRS garnished my paycheck?

The IRS and state governments reserve the right to garnish your wages. They can garnish a large percentage of your pay as well. They also reserve the right to levy your bank account rather it be a checking or savings account. Guarding Tax Consulting considers this a crises situation. We will make it a priority to stop the levy, by proving the levy puts you in a hardship position. Sometimes the IRS will only do a partial levy release. In most cases, you need to be fully compliant with all your tax filings before a levy will be released. Guardian Tax Consulting can help you become compliant and release your levy to give you peace of mind and continue to pay those monthly bills.

Do I qualify for an Offer In Compromise and will I get pennies on the dollar?

Many companies over sell the Offer In Compromise by telling you they will settle your case pennies on the dollar. And, obviously, this can make one very excited. The truth in the matter is Guardian Tax Consulting needs to review your case, your financials and your work history to determine if you qualify for an Offer In Compromise. In the initial free consultation, based on the information you provide, we can give you an idea of what your settlement amount will be. Once we determine you qualify, you need to send us the signed contract with a retainer. Guardian Tax Consulting then will start the process by collecting and verifying the financial statements from you. Once Guardian Tax Consulting has prepared the Offer In Compromise a determination of your settlement amount is validated. In rare cases, some do have settlements of pennies on the dollar. However, it is usually based on what you can afford over a period of time, but still a hefty savings will be achieved.

Remember, Guardian Tax Consulting has years of experience and we have many other service offerings that can be just as advantageous as the Offer In Compromise.
