3 Things You Need to Know If You Want Your Federal Income Tax Problems to Go Away

Right now, there is that constant feeling of something unpleasant hanging over your head. No matter where you are in Oklahoma City or what you are doing, you have the stress of federal tax liability following you. You want the problems to go away, but you may lack the funds to write a check. You may lack the resources to pay the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in full while continuing to meet your other obligations.

Don’t Give Up: There Are Options to Resolve Your Tax Liability

Writing a large check is not the only way to make your IRS tax debt go away. Other  possible solutions are permitted by federal law and one or more of these solutions may help you resolve your outstanding federal tax liability. As you decide which solution might be right for you, it is important to remember that:

  • There are many alternative solutions that do not include paying your tax obligations immediately, in one lump sum. For example, you may be able to file for hardship status, suggest an offer in compromise, or assert an innocent spouse defense to your current tax issues.
  • It is the IRS’s job to collect the taxes and penalties that are owed. While the IRS should not be untruthful with you, it is not the revenue officer’s job to suggest alternative ways to resolve your tax problems.
  • You need to take action. Hoping this will end will not make your tax problems go away. Instead, you need to take action to protect your rights.

 

Of course, it is also important to look into the specific alternative solutions that might apply to your unique tax situation.
