Find out if you qualify to settle your tax debtWhen you owe back taxes or have other tax problems, you need to take action. The good news is that the IRS allows qualified taxpayers to negotiate a settlement of their tax liabilities, sometimes for a fraction of what's owed. The requirements are strict, but we can help, starting with a no-cost evaluation of your options. Avoid unscrupulous companies that promise to settle your tax debt for pennies on the dollar. If you qualify, you will have the option of having your case defended by a competent team of professionals.

Resolving your tax debt can be a lengthy process. The tax resolution firm provides a comprehensive service to help you resolve your tax debt. Their services include:
Through what's called an offer in compromise, the IRS allows people with tax debt to settle the debt for less than the full amount owed. It can be an option for those who can't pay their taxes in full or if doing so would create a financial hardship. But because of strict requirements by the IRS, most taxpayers do not qualify. The IRS considers your unique set of facts and circumstances, including your ability pay, income, expenses and asset equity. Our partners aggressively pursue your best option with the IRS.
Each case varies depending on your unique set of circumstances, the amount owed, type of case (offers in compromise take longer than negotiating installment agreement payment plans, for example), whether the case is going to appeals or IRS workload. On average, a case can take 6 to 9 months to resolve. Some may take longer.
Your evaluation is free, and there is no obligation to go any further. If you decide to proceed, a flat fee will be determined, based on a variety of factors, and you will be informed of all costs before you make any commitment. Fees will not change unless information that increases the scope of the work is uncovered during the course of the case, such as the need to prepare more years of unfiled returns than was represented.
