This week I helped a realtor resolve a long-standing tax problem and get a fresh start. It’s a problem that began when the mortgage crisis hit in 2009-2010, and which has created financial, emotional, and relational torment ever since.
Five years of tax returns were filed.
And a fair, affordable monthly payment agreement was reached with the IRS.
More importantly, it helped our client gain peace of mind, a fresh start, and renewed hope for the future, both at work and at home. Which is much more rewarding to me than any recognition gained or compensation earned.
Most taxpayers get into trouble with the IRS due to circumstances beyond their control. Sometimes it’s a health crisis, which attacks both your body and your finances. Sometimes it’s an economic downturn or loss of a job. You’re not to blame; you’re not the one who started the problem. But then once it started, it took a life of it’s own. Now you have un-filed tax returns, or un-paid taxes, and it feels like things are out of control.
The good news is that it’s never too late to make a fresh start. It really is possible to put your IRS problem behind you.
If you or someone you know has an IRS problem, please don’t keep me a secret! I’m authorized to represent taxpayers before the IRS in all 50 states.
