Tax Debt Strategies

Tax Debt Strategies

Dealing with IRS tax debts can be a stressful problem. But you can resolve your tax debts using the following steps.

Double check your original tax returns. If you overlooked some deductions, it will be worthwhile to amend your tax return so you can lower the amount you owe.
Choose the tax debt plan that best suits your current financial situation.And there’s five strategies for getting out of debt:

1- Installment Agreement

A monthly payment plan for paying off the IRS.

2- Partial payment installment agreement

A fairly new debt management program where you have a long term payment plan to pay off the IRS at a reduced dollar amount.

3-Offer in compromise

A program where you can settle your tax debts for less than what you owe. Requires a  short term payment plan to pay off the IRS at a reduced dollar amount.

4-Not Currently Collectible 

A program where the IRS voluntarily agrees not to collect on the tax debt for a year.

5-Filling bankruptcy

Discharge your tax debts under the strict rules of a chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy petition.

Filing late tax returns and amended returns

If you haven’t filed your taxes, you are generally in a more advantageous position. That’s because you can still take every tax deduction you are legally entitled to in order to reduce your tax liability.

If you’ve already filed taxes, your will need to get a quickly review to be able to determine if your taxes are accurate and if you were entitled to deductions you overlooked.  Amended returns requires a substantial amount of paperwork and reprocessing. Amended returns must be thoroughly accurate with lots of supporting documentation, or else you risk an IRS audit. Generally speaking, you’ll will need to retrieve a complete set of documentation from the IRS and compare that information to the tax documents you already have.
