Exploring The Different Types Of IRS Notices That May Be Received

In many cases taxpayers can be overwhelmed and confused when it comes to receiving a wide variety of different types of IRS tax notices. Understanding an individual notice that may arise is one of the best ways to avoid confusion. Even more important is to consult with an IRS tax lawyer in Atlanta when receiving any type of IRS tax notice. Receiving a notice from the IRS typically raises a host of questions.

Reducing Tax Debt Through Penalty Abatement

Perhaps one of the most perplexing aspects of owing taxes is that the debt amount continues to expand uncontrollably due to monthly penalties and interest applied by the IRS. While in most circumstances, interest is not dischargeable penalties can indeed be discharged or reduced depending on the taxpayer's overall situation. There are many different types of penalties that can be charged to a taxpayer's tax debt because of past debt obligations.

Dealing With Long-Term Tax Obligations

Today more than ever before people are dealing with a wide range of tax issues that includes late or unpaid taxes. From a major economic downturn to divorce or the death of a loved one, paying taxes can become more complex over time. While owing taxes is never a good feeling it can be even more daunting if an individual ends up simply not filing a tax return. It should be noted that the consequences for having not filed a tax return are very concerning and very serious.

Understanding Tax Law

Tax law is a unique segment of law that covers the policies, rules and laws that oversee the overall tax process in the United States. This can include everything from general transactions to even property tax and common license taxes. Today modern taxation can even include duties on imports from a variety of foreign countries across the world. Compulsory type levees that are imposed by other governments upon US taxpayers for the benefits of that country can also be included in modern tax law.

Addressing The Issue Of Tax Bankruptcy

While there are many ways to handle a wide variety of different types of IRS tax debts and bills, one way in particular has become more mainstream in recent years. That is the use of something that is called tax bankruptcy as a way to deal with tax related bills that are overdue or excessive. A large or overbearing IRS tax debt sometimes requires that an individual consider filing something known as tax debt bankruptcy so to discharge the debt. Using either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 filing, a taxpayer can find relief from overwhelming tax burden.

What To Do If You Owe More Than Your Home Is Worth

Today more than ever homeowners throughout the country are experiencing the uncomfortable situation of being underwater with regard to their home mortgage. The precipitous market crash that everyone experienced in 2008 continues to affect the finances of people even today. When an individual owes more on their mortgage than the property is actually worth they are considered underwater. Many estimates calculate that nearly one in five US mortgage holders are underwater to some degree.

Better Understanding Of IRS Wage Garnishment And What To Do

Tax debt in today's world is a serious concern especially among those who have limited financial resources. That said when the IRS chooses to collect a tax debt, an action that is called wage garnishment is important to understand. Perhaps most concerning of all when it comes to wage garnishment is that it is continuous in nature and can have a direct impact on the taxpayer's overall monthly or annual income.

Avoiding Self Representation When Being Audited

Occasionally individuals may choose to represent themselves or their company when being audited by the Internal Revenue Service. This is typically not the best choice and can easily result in added problems and more confusion. In fact, the IRS and its experienced and knowledgeable revenue agents will typically seek to gain the most from taxpayers who are simply not aware of their rights and the considerable powers of the IRS. Working with a focused Atlanta IRS attorney is the smart alternative.

IRS Installment Payments Can Be Affordable

More people than ever before experiencing excessive tax burdens. That said, there are indeed ways to achieve affordable installment payments by working with the IRS and an Atlanta tax attorney. Because a growing number of taxpayers are simply unable to pay their taxes in a single payment, they are turning to affordable installment payments as a smart and viable option. The IRS has a number of debt repayment programs that are intended to allow taxpayers to pay their tax bill via monthly installment payments.

Understanding Tax Collection Enforcement

It is a known fact that the IRS has the power to levy and apply liens to personal property as well as the financial resources of individuals and businesses. In most cases the Internal Revenue Service collection process consists of a series of actions that is taken by the agency as a way to collect taxes a taxpayer or business owes. This is especially true if taxes are not paid voluntarily through normal IRS payment processes. When a taxpayer has delinquent tax obligations the IRS will typically take action.
