Have you received a threatening IRS letter or know you have an IRS tax liability to deal with?
Then, it's time to review your basic options:
- Wait and Do Nothing for Now - The IRS doesn't always act right away. Older debts eventually expire. Consult with a the tax pros at WATAX and see if you should delay before acting.
- Propose a Settlement - If you can't pay back what you owe any time soon, time to talk with a tax pro to see if the Offer in Compromise is feasible for you.
- Enter a Livable Agreement - If you have the ability to pay the IRS, time to get the lowest agreement possible while considering a penalty waiver.
- Pay the Debt with Penalty Waiver Request - If you can pay the original taxes plus some interest, time to see if First Time Abatement or Reasonable Cause penalty waivers can help reduce the tax debt.
- Get Case Closed for Hardship - If you are not producing enough income to pay the IRS back while paying your bills or have no assets to liquidate, time to ask for Currently Not Collectible.
