Services Overview

IRS Bank Levy


  • What is it?

    A bank levy is when the IRS 'freezes' your bank or financial accounts. The IRS uses a bank levy when taxpayers ignore notices to pay past due taxes.

  • How it works

    The bank will hold your money, usually for 21 days, then turn it over to the IRS where it will be applied to back taxes. The California Franchise Tax Board uses a similar process. San Diego, CA residents are often blindsided when this occurs and it can have devastating results. Call us, we release bank levies on a regular basis.

Offer in Compromise

  • What is it?

    An Offer in Compromise is an agreement whereby a taxpayer settles their tax debt for less than what they owe. The difference between approval and denial can often come as a result of not understanding the process.

  • How it Works

    To be successful with an Offer in Compromise you must be able to demonstrate you cannot, or should not, be required to pay the full amount.

    Don't be misled by the catch phrase 'pennies on the dollar.' There are over 40 factors the IRS takes into consideration before granting an Offer in Compromise.

IRS Installment Agreement


  • What is it?

    An IRS Installment Agreement, is as the name implies, an agreement to repay taxes in monthly installments. Interest and penalities continue to stack up unless you can provide valid reasons why they shouldn't.

  • How it Works

    There are many types of payment plans. Before you rush into setting up your own payment plan here are a few things to consider. It is possible to reduce, or eliminate, the amount of your payment by: abating penalities, amending tax returns, filing back tax returns, showing a lack of disposable income, claiming innocent spouse relief, tolling the statute, allocating income to other acceptable expenses. Call us to explain the process.

Innocent Spouse Relief


  • What is it?

    Most married couples file a joint tax return referred to as "Married-filing jointly." When you file MFJ both spouses are liable for ALL of the debt. When one party is the victim of their spouse’s inaccurate or malicious reporting, Innocent Spouse Relief can eliminate an innocent spouses liability.

  • How it Works

    Taxpayers must request Innocent Spouse Relief within two years of the date the IRS first makes contact seeking to collect the debt. You must be able to show you were unaware, or misled about the circumstances that created the debt. Innocent Spouse Relief is a powerful tool when used correctly.

Tax Preparation

  • What is it?

If order to negotiate a resolution with the IRS, or California Franchise Tax Board, your tax returns must be current. We have decades of experience preparing tax returns. We amend, audit and review tax returns consistently as a function of our service commitment.

Trust Fund Recovery Penalty


  • What is it?

    The Trust Fund portion of payroll tax is the tax a business took out of the employees pay check to hand over to the IRS. This money is also the repsonsibility of the business owners.
    The portion of payroll tax that is not the employees is the "matching" portion. It is possible to avoid this matching portion.
    Payroll taxes are complex and the IRS is very aggressive in collecting them. In addition, the IRS always assigns a Revenue Office in payroll tax cases. The Revenue Officer can come to your business or home.

  • How it Works

    The IRS assess the penalty against anyone who fails to collect, or pay over payroll taxes (referred to as a "responsible party"). This sets up a situation where the business tax due now becomes the reponsible party(s) tax debt.

Penalty Abatement


Image
  • What is it?

    The IRS allows taxpayers to file a penalty abatement request in certain cases. The two major penalties are Failure to File and Failure to Pay.

  • How it Works

    For the IRS to remove penalties, taxpayers must demonstrate reasonable cause, or First Time Abatement if they have a clean prior record. Examples of reasonable cause include natural disasters, medical problems, or poor representation from a previous tax relief professional. We have specialists to do penalty abatement.
