At Austin & Larson Tax Resolution, we specialize in preparing tax returns and resolving our clients’ tax debt. Whether you are looking for someone to prepare your current year tax return or if you need assistance with a complex IRS or State of Michigan tax issue, we are here to help. Below are some of the services that our firm provides. Please feel free to contact us to discuss these services in more detail and to determine the best course of resolution for your tax needs.
One of the most beneficial programs that the IRS currently offers is the Offer in Compromise program. Through this program, an eligible taxpayer can settle out their current tax liabilities for significantly less than they owe. Although not everyone will qualify for this program, those taxpayers that do can settle out their current tax debt, leaving them tax free and able to move forward without their current tax debt. Our team of experts will analyze your current financial situation to determine if you would be a good candidate for this program. We have extensive experience and success negotiating Offer in Compromises with the IRS.
Both the IRS and State of Michigan offer multiple payment plan options for paying your outstanding tax liabilities. Whether you owe $5,000.00 or $500,000.00, our qualified tax experts can help you to establish a payment plan that will work for you.
Some taxpayers find themselves in a situation where they do not qualify for an IRS Offer in Compromise, but they also cannot afford to make monthly payments on their tax debt. These taxpayers may qualify for a currently non-collectable status. This program was established to provide temporary relief for back taxes. While in a currently non-collectable status, the IRS will not pursue collection action against you (levies, wage garnishments, etc.).
One thing that many people do not know is that taxes can be discharged through a bankruptcy. If you are looking at filing a bankruptcy, we can review your taxes to determine what balances may be discharged by the IRS. We will then review to make sure that the IRS properly discharges the balances after your bankruptcy is complete.
IRS audits are a very long and tedious process. They require you to compile and provide large amounts of supporting documentation to the IRS. Even if you have all of your tax documentation, audits can result in hundreds or even thousands of additional dollars being assessed to your account if you don’t correctly present your information or if you are not aware of IRS policies and procedures. If you have received notice that the IRS is examining one of your returns, please contact our office to discuss your options.
We will do a thorough job of completing your business and personal taxes, so you get the best advantages. Our skilled tax team have extensive knowledge in tax preparation, and in representing our clients with the IRS.
Both the IRS and State of Michigan use Revenue Officers to collect outstanding balances or get unfiled returns prepared and filed. These agents will contact you directly and may show up at your house or your business. These agents have the authority to issue wage garnishments, levies, or seizures of property. They may also contact third parties to gather information. If a Revenue Officer has been assigned to your account, we highly recommend that you have a tax professional represent you instead of trying to deal with the IRS or State of Michigan directly. Our firm will contact the Revenue Officer directly and represent you before them. We will make sure that they follow proper procedures and work to get you the best resolution possible.
Getting into and remaining in compliance with the IRS and State of Michigan is one of the cornerstones of resolving your tax liabilities and ensuring that you do not owe again in the future. Let our office work with you to prepare and file your back tax returns and take steps to ensure that you are properly paying your current year taxes.
