Why IRS Problems Arise

Various reasons can land you in the spotlight of the IRS. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Filing taxes late or not filing them at all
  • Inaccurate or incomplete tax returns
  • Failure to report income
  • Issues related to self-employment taxes
  • Allegations of tax fraud or evasion

The Consequences of Unresolved IRS Issues

Ignoring or avoiding IRS issues can lead to severe consequences. Some of these may include:

  • Hefty fines and penalties
  • Interest accumulating on unpaid taxes
  • Wage garnishments
  • Bank Levies
  • Seizure of property or assets

The risks are real, but understanding your options and acting promptly can make all the difference.

How Bankruptcy Can Eliminate Tax Debt

Not all tax debt is dischargeable in bankruptcy. In fact, most of it is not. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, however, can be a powerful tool that can rid you of burdensome tax debt in some circumstances. Specifically, a federal income tax debt is dischargeable in Chapter 7 if the following conditions are met:

  • The tax return related to the debt was filed two years ago or earlier
  • The tax return had a filing deadline over three years ago, including extensions
  • The tax assessment is 240 days old or older
  • There is no evidence of tax evasion or a fraudulent tax return

If the debt is not dischargeable, The Law Office of Charles A. May can help you by negotiating an installment plan that allows you to pay off your tax debt over time or negotiating an offer in compromise that settles your debt in one lump sum payment that is less than you owe. Attorney Charlie May has extensive experience working with the IRS and negotiating effective solutions for his clients. We will find the solution that works best for you and help you achieve it.
