Tax Debt Assistance With a Santa Ana Tax Attorney

When the IRS comes knocking with a notice about unpaid taxes, it can take you completely by surprise. On top of getting stuck with thousands or more in debt, feelings of hopelessness and isolation are not uncommon, especially when you’re unaware of your options for resolution. Threats from the IRS often feel significantly scarier than your average debt collector’s because they’ve got the weight of the U.S. government behind them.

It’s important to keep a level head and avoid acting out of panic or fear in order to effectively approach managing your tax debt. Often, the IRS’ threats are a device to get taxpayers to pay up as much money as possible as quickly as possible, in the hopes that they won’t defend themselves properly and reduce the amount they owe. With the assistance of a seasoned Santa Ana tax attorney, the chances of settling your debt with the IRS for a significantly reduced cost are much better than if you try to settle it alone.

Instant Tax Solutions have experienced tax attorneys on staff to address your situation with the care and proficiency you deserve. If you’re being badgered with letters from the IRS or are facing threats of wage garnishment, bank levies, tax liens, penalties, fines, or growing interest, getting help from a seasoned Santa Ana tax lawyer is a great way to start on your path to a better financial future.

What Tax Relief Services Are Available in Santa Ana?

Whether you’ve got more debt than you can afford, are looking at expensive fines and penalties, or are facing threats of other activities like a wage garnishment or a bank lien, there are options at your disposal to reduce the impact and cost of IRS actions.

A seasoned tax relief attorney will have a strong familiarity with the programs and tactics you can use to fight back against the demands of the IRS and state tax collectors. Our clients in California have found relief through our services by getting help with their tax-related struggles in a variety of ways:

  • Verify your tax debt through an independent audit to ensure you’ve not been overcharged
  • Find ways to reduce your tax debt directly 
  • Work with the IRS on the client’s behalf during negotiations, formal communications, and as legal representation, if the case goes to court
  • Provide a comprehensive explanation of the tax debt and related IRS actions, as well as how the current tax laws might affect the case.
  • Discover available tax relief programs and options, including those specific to the client’s location
  • Defend against IRS enforcement actions, including levies, liens, IRS interest and penalties, wage garnishment, and more

Taking on the IRS alone can be a costly mistake for those who are not intimately familiar with tax law and the options taxpayers have to reduce what they owe. If they discover you’re not using the help of a tax relief attorney, they’re likely to hit you with everything they have in an attempt to recover the maximum they can. Enlisting the help of a Santa Ana tax lawyer can significantly reduce the amount you have to pay at the end of the day, meaning you can stabilize your finances and get back on your feet quicker.

Understanding Fines, Interest, Levies, Liens, and Other IRS Adverse Actions

The IRS will likely start threatening you with serious legal action very quickly if you’re unable to immediately pay back the taxes they say you owe. Some of these actions amount to debt piled on top of your already existing debt, but some can also threaten your property and wages.

Interest and Penalties

The IRS will give you a deadline to begin paying back your owed taxes, and if you don’t pay them back in full by this due date, you’ll likely immediately be hit with interest and penalties. When you’ve already got tax debt that you can’t pay back, piling on fines, interest, and other penalties can bury you deeper yet. This is common for struggling businesses or self-employed individuals, especially in times of crises like the COVID-19 pandemic. A seasoned tax attorney can help you address these often unfair penalties, helping you reduce or even eliminate them while negotiating with the IRS.

Tax Lien

A tax lien is placed on an asset, which means that the IRS has restricted it from being sold or transferred until any tax debt associated with it is cleared. This is most common in the case of very expensive assets which have their own unique assets, such as real estate.

Tax Levy

When the IRS comes after your assets with the purpose of liquidating them to pay off your debt, they’re utilizing what is known as a tax levy. A levy can be in the form of repossession of a vehicle, house, personal items, funds in your bank accounts, wages via garnishment, or any other valuable asset you have. Tax levies commonly “freeze” assets in bank accounts and can severely disrupt livelihoods. When you fail to pay back the IRS for owed taxes or other debts, they will begin to aggressively target these assets. For some, losing a car or a house would mean a significantly worse chance at recovering financially, which is often why a levy is one of the scariest threats the IRS has in its arsenal. 

You Have Options

If you’re being threatened with any action due to tax debt, getting in touch with an experienced tax attorney can save you a lot of money and stress in the long run. Your rights as a taxpayer are significant, and the IRS is often more willing to negotiate and reduce penalties and debt than you may realize.
