BC Tax Successfully Helps Client Remove IRS Penalties Charges

When our sales department reached out to a recent client, a doctor from Pennsylvania, he was being aggressively levied by the IRS. The taxpayer desperately needed someone experienced in tax resolution to help him get out from underneath the burden he was facing.

Use a Credit Card to Pay Your Tax Debt?

Tax debts can be overwhelming, especially for those who aren’t expecting them. If you are hit with a huge bill, you might be tempted to charge it all to your credit card. At least that gets the IRS off your back, right?

Even though you may be able to escape the government with your credit card, you could face a slew of other problems that you need to know about. Here are some issues to keep in mind:

  • Your credit score could drop because you have a higher debt to available balance ratio.
  • You may lose some of your emergency funds because your card is maxed out.
  • You might be charged large fees because some credit card companies assess this as a cash advance payment.
  • You may face higher interest payments, depending on which card you use.
  • You will limit the amount of credit you can apply for in the near future.
  • You still will have to pay everything back.

If you can get around these negatives, by all means give it a try. In most cases though, it is easier to work out an installment plan directly with the government. You’ll owe the same money no matter what. You might as well take out the middle man. Before you try to swipe yourself out of debt, consider some of the alternatives.

BC Tax Tax Resolution

Are you overwhelmed with the sea of back taxes that currently consumes your life? Are you trying to figure out how you could ever get out from underneath the debt you have developed over the past few years? If so, rest assured that you are not alone. There are thousands of people living with tax debt in the world, and they all have to figure out what they are going to do with their current balances. Now it is your turn to assess your options and come up with a plan that works for you. Here are some of the best ways to pay back taxes as they crop up.

Settled Balances

If you choose to work with a consultant at BC Tax Tax Resolution, you may be able to reduce the amount of money you owe to the IRS. One of the professionals here can draft a tax settlement for you so that you only have a small sum to pay upfront. If you have some money put aside for your taxes, this could be a great opportunity to cut down your costs.

Installment Plans

If you can’t afford to pay for your taxes all at once, you may want to set up an installment plan instead. This will give you a chance to pay your back taxes over time through small monthly payments. You will pay more money in the long run this way because the IRS will charge you interest. Nevertheless, it is an option to help you keep your head above water.

Quarterly Estimates

If you can avoid tax debt in the first place, you may not have to worry about the options above. Work with the IRS to make quarterly tax estimates throughout the year, and then pay those as they come up. If you can do this consistently, you should be able to bypass the need to pay a ton of money to the government.

Tax Resolution vs Tax Preparation?

Some people use the terms “tax preparation” and “tax resolution” interchangeably, assuming that they mean the same thing. They represent two entirely different services though. Before you start working with a tax professional, you may want to know which kind you actually need. Here are some definitions to help you out.

Tax Preparation

Tax preparation happens when your taxes are due every year. If you’ve ever gone in to “get your taxes done,” you’ve worked with prep before. All a tax preparation expert will do is go over your financial documents and tell you how much you owe the government, if anything. Then he or she will turn in your paperwork for you.

Tax Resolution

Tax resolution occurs after your taxes have been filed. If you owe more than you can afford to pay or you think there is an error in your tax debts, you need resolution services to fix the problem. Tax resolution does not work for all situations, but it can potentially help you save money on your debts. It’s just a matter of seeing what you have to work with.

Figure out which type of service you need, and then you’ll be able to pick the right team for the job.

Received An IRS Notice? Here’s What To Do

Each year the IRS sends millions of letters and notices to taxpayers. Understandably, you may feel anxious if you receive one. Don’t panic. There are many reasons the IRS sends notices to taxpayers. The notice usually covers a specific issue about your account or tax return. It may request payment of taxes, notify you of a change to your account or ask for additional information or, most alarmingly of all, threaten to levy or seize your assets as payment of your past due taxes, penalties, and interest.

If you receive a notice about a correction to your tax return, you should review it carefully. You usually will need to compare the information in the notice to the entries on your tax return.
There is no need for you to call or visit an IRS office to answer most IRS notices. However, you should act quickly to ensure the best results. Please call us now toll free at (800) 457-2434 for a consultation to discuss your situation and possible resolutions.
