The notice has come. The Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) is telling you that you owe back taxes to the state. You may agree with the OTC’s assessment of your tax situation, you may agree that you owe taxes but disagree with the amount assessed by the OTC, or you may disagree with the OTC entirely. Regardless of your agreement or disagreement with the content of the notice, you have a problem.
How to Make the Problem Go Away
One way to make your tax problems go away is to work on settling your tax claim with the Oklahoma Tax Commission. If you are interested in settling your claim, then the following tips may help you reach the settlement you seek:
- Make sure that you notify the OTC of your proposed settlement in a timely fashion. If you do not, then the efforts to collect your back taxes may be turned over to a collection agency.
- Be willing to negotiate. If you have solid evidence that you have paid all of your taxes on time and that you do not owe the OTC any money, then you may be unwilling to negotiate a settlement. In many other cases, however, you should be willing to negotiate a fair settlement.
- Hire an Oklahoma City tax lawyer. Your lawyer can advise you about a fair settlement and work hard to get you the settlement you deserve.
Additionally, an Oklahoma City tax lawyer will provide you with other tips for managing this tax problem and avoiding future tax issues.
