BACK TAX RELIEF
IRS tax burdens can add huge amounts of stress to your daily life. This is especially true if you cannot afford to pay what back tax you owe, and are aware that interest and penalties are constantly adding to the amount you owe. People who are self-employed are especially vulnerable to creating an IRS back tax liability because of the necessity to set aside funds for estimated tax payments throughout the year. No matter how bad you think your IRS taxes owed situation is, help is available. Both individuals and businesses can get help with their back tax problems. There are several companies that claim to be able to help with your back taxes, and tax advisors, tax attorneys and tax law firms can be found all over the internet, but they may not actually be qualified to help you.
If you avoid paying back taxes, the IRS will enforce collections. The IRS can force your employer to garnish your wages and send significant portions of your checks to the IRS. Help for your back tax problem can consist of many forms. Negotiating with the IRS to establish payment plans, filing an offer in compromise to settle the dues, filing old returns, innocent spouse and getting the IRS to lift liens are available services. The problem is that only qualified, dedicated and experienced professionals are likely to succeed in obtaining the relief you need.
Get the Back Tax Help You Need
Large tax law firms are certainly qualified to help with your back taxes, but they may not have the time to do so. Large law firms make the most money from representing large companies or very wealthy individuals. Small businesses and less wealthy individuals are often a lower priority for such firms. Solo tax attorneys may be qualified to assist you, but lack the experience necessary to successfully negotiate with the IRS. Qualified companies with experience and the desire to help regular taxpayers may be the most helpful.
At 911TaxResolutions, our team of tax professionals can help you pay your back taxes. Negotiating settlements and payments with the IRS is often a frustrating and time-consuming task for non-professionals. Beyond qualifications, Tax Tiger focuses on customer service. We invite you to check our record with the Better Business Bureau and read testimonials of past clients.

Innocent Spouse Relief
NON-FILED TAX RETURNS AND BACK TAX HELP
For years you haven’t filed any tax returns, did you not file your returns because you couldn’t pay the taxes owed? You’re not alone! Businesses, adults and even some young people earning money must file tax returns each year. Failure to file can cause huge problems. Repercussions of delinquent tax returns can pop up years later, even when you’ve forgotten about them. Failure to file one year can cause the IRS to keep a refund you are owed for the next year as well! Other consequences are much more serious. Don’t wait for the IRS to contact you, and don’t let the IRS prepare a return for you, it’s not in your best interest. They will use the highest tax rate when they prepare your unfiled delinquent tax returns for you.
If the IRS has not yet notified you, they will catch up to you sooner or later. Computers are becoming more sophisticated with technology and the sharing of data. The IRS may also seek to impose a criminal offense for failure to file tax returns as required. When you do file your returns, the tax returns must be accurate and truthful. If false returns are detected by the IRS, a fraud referral to the Criminal Investigation Division will be generated. Failure to file returns is a FELONY and subject to criminal and civil penalties. This means that you can go to prison, pay substantial penalties and be financially destroyed. Willful failure to file returns can result in a punishment of one year in jail and a $25,000 fine ($100,000 in the case of a corporation).
Delinquent tax returns should be filed immediately, even if you cannot afford to pay the taxes owed. While filing delinquent returns without paying the bill will cause interest and penalties to begin accruing, failure to file on-time dramatically increases these penalties. These combined penalties can be as high as 25 percent of the taxes owed! When you do file, you must prepare and file tax returns that are accurate and truthful as the returns will be examined by the IRS. We can guide you to becoming current with your tax return filing obligations and then analyze your situation to determine the best course of action. For many taxpayers, this tax resolution typically leads to an Offer in Compromise.
STOP IRS WAGE GARNISHMENT
Ignoring your taxes can lead to the IRS addressing them for you, in ways you might not appreciate. Enforced collection of taxes often takes the form of an IRS wage garnishment. The IRS can decide how much of your monthly income it needs to pay off your taxes owed, and then begin taking a percentage of your paycheck. While limits on the percentage the IRS can take exist, you can still be left with very little money. Often times, your employer will fail to provide the necessary forms to fill out which would limit the amount the IRS can keep, leading to wage garnishments upward of 75 percent of your check.
When the IRS decides how much of your paycheck to take, they don’t take into account how much money you actually spend on necessities. Instead, they rely on tables of allowable expenses which they’ve compiled. If you’re living paycheck to paycheck, IRS wage garnishment deductions can leave you without enough money to pay your rent.
Negotiating IRS Wage Garnishment With Tax Tiger
There are solutions to your tax problems that allow you to avoid IRS wage garnishment. Installment payment plans and settlement offers both accomplish the same thing as wage garnishment. When installment plans or settlement offers are negotiated by tax professionals, your needs are much more likely to be taken into account.
We can negotiate with the IRS for you to set up a payment plan that will satisfy the IRS. Our tax professionals can ensure that installment payments are within your means. In short, we give you a voice in the payment of your taxes. Our Tax Tiger team has recently helped nearly 2000 people pay the IRS only 10 percent of their taxes owed! This is accomplished by presenting the IRS with an offer in compromise. The qualification and negotiation processes for offers in compromise are complex. At Tax Tiger, we understand these rules and can determine if you can take advantage of an offer in compromise. If you need help with your tax problems, let Tax Tiger take the reins by calling us today for your free confidential consultation!
IRS AUDIT REPRESENTATION
If you have received a notice from the IRS questioning or disallowing certain deductions, do not ignore it, don’t panic, talk to the auditor only enough to refer him/her to your tax professional, and get organized. Without the appropriate response, the IRS will change your returns and assess a new liability along with additional penalties and interest. Ignoring the notice will also waive your future rights.
You will normally receive a letter stating that your tax return has been selected for an examination. By no means does this imply that you are lying or cheating on your tax return. The goal of the IRS audit process is to increase the tax compliance and collect the appropriate revenue for the government. The moment you receive notice of an examination is the right moment to seek professional IRS representation.
The IRS has “normal” percentages for deductions based on income levels, and the more your deductions vary from the norm computed by the IRS, the greater the chance of error on the return. Therefore, those returns are the ones more likely to be audited. IRS audit rates are rising dramatically for all types of taxpayers. Over the last few years, the rate at which the IRS is auditing individual taxpayers has risen more than 25%, and the audit rate for high-income taxpayers has nearly doubled.
Because the tax laws are subject to interpretation and are neither black or white, there is no such thing as a perfectly correct tax return. IRS audit agents will often try to expand the scope of the audit to include other areas of the tax return, or include other years beyond the tax return in question. Tax Tiger representatives can conduct the audit in such a manner as to “limit the scope” or limit the amount of information the agent sees or requests to examine.
Always prepare by providing your representative with the information requested by the auditor in an organized and timely manner, it limits the amount of information that is exposed to IRS scrutiny and shows that you are well prepared. Organized records also have a tendency to make the auditor think you are a “squeaky clean” taxpayer and may result in the auditor limiting their scope.
Tax Tiger has substantial experience representing individuals, professionals, and business owners facing IRS and State audits. You need an experienced representative on your side, whether that be an Attorney, CPA, or Enrolled Agent when facing the IRS to resolve your tax liability.
TAX RELIEF ATTORNEYS

IRS TAX SECRETS
Trying to deal with the IRS on your own is like representing yourself in a court of Law with NO legal representation. Any information you provide to the IRS, may hurt your case in the future. Most people do not have sufficient knowledge of the IRS collection process, or the skills necessary, to submit an Offer in Compromise that is in their best interest. Many fill out the forms incorrectly, overstate their assets and income, and offer too much. Approximately 75% of the OIC’s are returned at the beginning due to forms being filled out incorrectly, and of the 25% that are processed, approximately 50% of those are rejected at a cursory glance by the offer evaluation department within the IRS.
An Experienced Tax Attorney or Enrolled Agent can thoroughly research the tax laws and has mastered them. The scope of tax research is not just limited to the Internal Revenue Code, but also Treasury Regulations, IRS rulings and court decisions. Tax attorneys and Enrolled Agents have advanced training, technical expertise and financial insight to seek out and address all legal tax issues.
- 1. A Tax Attorney and client have what’s called “client/attorney” privilege.
- 2. Tax Attorneys, CPA’s, and Enrolled Agents have direct lines to the IRS, and the ability to immediately access information regarding your IRS situation.
- 3. In some cases, a portion or all of our fees are allowed by the IRS as a necessary expense in determining an offer in compromise.
- 4. If your allowable monthly expenses exceed your monthly income, you may not be required to make any payments to the IRS while that situation remains.
- 5. If your account may be classified as noncollectable, while the statute of limitations continues to run.
IRS TAX PAYMENT PLANS
Have you filed your income tax returns and were unable to pay the taxes due, or have you just completed your return and owe more than you can pay? Fortunately, the IRS is willing to negotiate repayment terms on what you owe them, however, you must know what they will allow or disallow as necessary expenses. The IRS will be very adamant about repaying the dues as quickly as possible, but you may have options outside of their suggested repayment amount and term. We will review your monthly income and living expenses, and let you know what the IRS position is on “Allowable Expenses”. As you can expect, the IRS definition of living expenses and ours will be very different.
A negotiated payment plan is much more favorable than a Wage Garnishment, Bank Levy, or Asset Seizure. This agreement, after approval by the IRS, will allow you to pay your tax liability over a period of time rather than in a lump sum, and there is no collection activity by the IRS during the Installment Agreement process. However, should you ever default on your agreement by missing one payment, or failing to pay the liability from a future tax return, your agreement will go into default and collection action by the IRS will begin.
If you would like for us to negotiate a repayment term with the IRS and put a stop to collections, feel free to contact us at any time for a FREE confidential consultation.

FEDERAL TAX LIEN RELEASE
Federal Tax Lien and IRS Tax Levy notifications can come as a complete shock, just like any other IRS Tax Problems that can arise. Have you received a notice from the IRS, telling you that they have filed a Federal Tax Lien against you? If you don’t protect your assets, the IRS may take them from you. That includes money in the bank, IRS bank levy, your car and other property, asset seizure, your paycheck, wage garnishment, and other property you own or have right to such as your home and your retirement. Don’t let this happen to you, get IRS Tax Relief now. We can help you with a Federal Tax Lien.
The IRS will file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien with the County Clerk in your area. This is public notice that you owe taxes. Additionally, the notice reads, “There is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of these taxes, and additional penalties, interest and costs that may accrue”. The filing of the notice can give you a major financial headache, and can cause problems such as making it difficult to obtain credit.
If you don’t take care of a Federal Tax Lien by paying the IRS what you owe in back taxes or file an “Offer in Compromise”, you will have no success in getting a release of this lien. If you don’t qualify for an Offer, we can help you set up an Installment Agreement to pay your taxes over a period of time.
IRS TAX OFFER IN COMPROMISE
If you owe back taxes to the IRS, you may be able to settle the taxes owed for less money with an offer in compromise. The IRS Offer in Compromise may be just the right IRS tax resolution you need. It is an out of court agreement between the IRS and the taxpayer that negotiates a resolution to the taxpayer’s liability, while placing collection efforts on hold. The Internal Revenue Service has the authority to settle or compromise federal tax liabilities by accepting less than full payment under certain circumstances. These circumstances are:
- Doubt as to liability – Doubt exists that the assessed tax is correct.
- Doubt as to collectibility – Doubt exists that you could ever pay the full amount of tax owed.
- Effective tax administration – Economic hardship which present little chance of repayment.
If you qualify for an Offer in Compromise and meet the IRS criteria, our veteran Tax Attorneys, Enrolled Agents, and Tax Specialists will contact the IRS for you and negotiate your Offer in Compromise settlement. The negotiations usually center on the proper valuation of your assets, accurate information about your monthly income, and living expenses.
Tax Tiger has the advantage of a national perspective regarding the Offer in Compromise process, because we have active cases throughout the United States, which helps eliminate the misapplication of tax law and prevent unnecessary errors while negotiating Offer in Compromise settlements. Through many years of experience and insight into unpublished IRS administrative practices and policies, Tax Tiger has developed an expert understanding of the Offer in Compromise process, and because of this, we have been able to settle cases at the lowest amounts the IRS will allow for each qualifying taxpayers situation. That insight we have into the Offer in Compromise process allows us to minimize the opportunity the IRS has to return an offer without resolution.
