Pontiac IRS Tax Settlement

For many people, tax season is the most stressful part of the year, especially if you cannot pay your taxes for any reason. The IRS is known to be unrelenting when it comes to tax debt, and if you can’t hold them off, you may find yourself in more legal problems.

Settling Tax Debts

There are plenty of methods available for taxpayers to consider if they have tax debt. If you are uncertain which one matches your needs, Defense Tax Partners can explain each one, help you pick the best one for you, and prepare the documentation you need to qualify for it.

Here are some of the methods or programs available to help you settle your tax debt:

“Currently Not Collectible” Status

You may be able to request a “currently not collectible” status from the IRS if you suddenly experienced an unforeseen situation that prevents you from paying off your debt. The IRS will check into your financial situation, and if they agree with your request, they will hold off collecting your taxes for a year so you can save up the money needed for your taxes.

Filing for Bankruptcy

If your financial situation has gone down, you can file for bankruptcy to get your tax debt settled in some way. Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, the tax debt can be removed entirely if you qualify. Meanwhile, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to get your tax debt paid in installments or even get a reduced tax debt amount that you can pay partially.

Innocent Spouse Claim

If your spouse or ex-spouse has a tax debt that you are not a party to, you can request an innocent spouse’s status from the IRS to prevent them from holding you liable for your spouse’s tax debt. Once approved, they won’t charge you for your spouse’s debt.

Installment Agreement (with Partial Payment Plans)

Taxpayers can also request from the IRS an installment payment plan if they can’t pay their taxes in full but can do so in regular payments. The IRS can assess your financial situation and negotiate with you a fixed amount that you have to pay to the agency monthly. They may even reduce the amount if they see that you qualify for the program.

“Offer in Compromise” Program

The IRS sometimes does agree to a one-time, lump-sum payment for a taxpayer’s tax debt if they cannot pay the full amount due to their current situation. The IRS will require you to prove that you won’t be able to pay the debt completely but can pay off some amount that they can agree on.

Statute of Limitations

In certain tax situations, it is possible that the IRS will have to waive your debt if it falls under the statute of limitations. The agency only has 10 years to collect any tax debt, and if they are unable to do so, the tax debt is automatically waived or forgiven. We can look into your tax situation and see if the statute of limitations applies to your situation.
