Guidance During Some of
Life's Most Stressful Moments

Dedicated Knowledgeable Thorough

Benjamin Franklin said, “....Nothing is certain except death and taxes”. If you have serious IRS debt, are facing an audit, have a number of missing tax returns or any number of other problems that exist in relation to the IRS, you may feel like “IRS stress” should be added to the quote. I help my clients develop plans that help them resolve and often eliminate IRS debt, create missing tax returns, stop IRS collection activity, and challenge the results of incorrect audit assessments. I try to eliminate the “IRS stress” for my clients and help them obtain the best result available.

IRS Audits and Audit Appeals

Ensuring that nothing is missed

When dealing with an IRS audit or when challenging the results of one, an understanding of tax law as well as the audit and audit appeal process are absolutely necessary. I provide my clients both. I also provide my clients with direct communication and personalized customer service. I want my clients to obtain the best result possible given their unique situation.

FAQ

Get your IRS questions answered.

WHAT ARE MY IRS TAX
DEBT OPTIONS?

IRS debt can be paid in full, settled, challenged, or discharged in bankruptcy. The way you deal with it will depend on your financial situation, IRS history, and personal goals.

WILL I LOSE MY REFUND IF I HAVE AN UNFILED IRS RETURN?

You can lose your IRS tax refund if you file the return too late. The IRS gets to keep any refunds from returns filed more than three years after the due date.

WHAT IF I DON'T RESPOND
TO AN IRS AUDIT?

If you don't respond to the audit, the IRS will eventually create a debt or a new debt amount with penalty and interest, and then move the debt to the collection enforcement side.

WHAT is the purpose of
an IRS CP2000 LETTER?

The IRS CP2000 letter provides notice of a discrepancy between what was reported to the IRS and your return. It also threatens changes to your return based on that discrepancy.
