Our Skilled Attorneys Explain Who Qualifies for IRS Payment Plans
Taxpayers that cannot afford to pay their tax debts in full may qualify for the payment plan option. Approval for payment plans is automatic if you owe the IRS less than $10,000, intend to pay the full amount that you owe within three years, and have paid taxes on time for the last five years without having to enter into a payment plan arrangement. If you do not meet these requirements, approval is not a sure thing, but it’s likely that you will be approved if you work with an experienced attorney.
How Can A Lawyer Help You With IRS Payment Plans?
People who are interested in setting up a payment plan must submit certain forms to the IRS for their review. An attorney can assist you with filling out these forms to ensure that all of the information is correct. Your attorney will also make sure that you are proposing a reasonable monthly payment plan, so the IRS does not immediately reject your request.
If the IRS has already started collection activities, setting up a payment plan is one way to get them to stop. For example, the IRS may notify you that they will begin to seize your personal property if you do not pay your tax debt in full. In this situation, an attorney can contact the IRS and work out a payment plan to prevent them from moving forward with seizing your property.
When Should You Contact Law Firms in Los Angeles For Assistance With IRS Payment Plans?
In general, it’s best to contact a lawyer as soon as you find out that you are unable to pay your taxes. Many people wait until they receive threatening letters from the IRS to contact an attorney. These letters usually give taxpayers tight deadlines that they must meet in order to avoid penalties. Lawyers can still assist clients that have started to receive these letters, but they won’t have as much time to resolve your issue due to the tight deadline. The sooner that you involve a lawyer, the sooner he can resolve your tax issues by arranging a payment plan with the IRS.
Our Lawyers Describe What Happens If You Don’t Set Up A Payment Plan
If you do not set up a payment plan or enter into another type of arrangement with the IRS, you will face consequences. The IRS will notify you via mail that you have to pay the tax debt in full or arrange a payment plan within a certain number of days. If you fail to meet this deadline, the IRS has the legal authority to attempt to collect the debt in other ways.
The IRS may contact your employer and inform them that a percentage of each of your paychecks must be sent directly to the IRS instead of to you. This is known as wage garnishment, and it’s a common method of collection. The IRS can also notify your bank of your tax debt and instruct them to freeze your account for 21 days. At the end of this time period, the IRS has the power to remove funds from your account to satisfy your debt, which is known as a bank levy. Other property might also be seized by the IRS, including real estate, cars, and boats. The IRS may also put a lien on your property if you fail to set up a payment plan.
To avoid these collection activities, you must either pay your tax debt or establish a payment plan with the IRS. Believe it or not, the IRS does not want to resort to these measures to collect your tax debt. In fact, they would much rather resolve the problem with a payment plan agreement. If the IRS has already started attempting to collect from you, work with an attorney at law to set up a payment plan and put an end to these collection activities.
