Did you receive an IRS notice? IRS notices can be very intimidating and confusing. Sean K. Butler, CPA, LLC, will evaluate the notice, determine the best course of action, and resolve the issue directly with the IRS on your behalf.
Filing Back Taxes
We’ll start by analyzing your situation and identifying your options. Then we’ll help you complete your un-filed tax returns and do everything in our power to minimize your back tax debt and any penalties incurred by your failure to file and/or failure to pay.
Tax Liens and Levies
If you’ve failed to file a return or pay back taxes, the IRS has many options for collecting the debt, including placing a lien on your home, car or other property. Sean K. Butler, CPA, will negotiate directly with the IRS to resolve the issue as quickly as possible and avoid further action, including having your property seized.
If you owe back taxes, the IRS can legally collect a portion of your wages directly from your employer in order to satisfy the debt. We will work with the IRS to develop an arrangement to settle the debt and end your wage garnishment.
Tax Settlement Options
An offer in compromise is an agreement enabling a business or individual to settle a tax debt for less than the full amount owed. If you qualify, he will work with the IRS to negotiate an agreement for the lowest possible settlement.
An installment agreement enables someone who can’t afford a large lump sum to pay off a tax debt in smaller increments. We can help you negotiate a plan that will meet your budget.
Currently-not-collectible status means that the IRS has removed your account from active collection efforts. We can help you determine whether you meet the qualification guidelines and if possible, have your account declared non-collectible.
Penalty and interest amounts for back taxes are often negotiable. Our experienced professionals will do everything possible to reduce your obligation.
