There Are Real Legal Options To Settle Tax Debts

The IRS and state agencies would have you believe that if you owe back taxes, your only option is to pay in full and by the date they set. At The Peck Group, LC, we know there are other options.

We Settle IRS And Tax Debts And Disputes

Our attorneys help individual and business clients throughout the nation resolve tax debts by negotiating with the IRS and state tax authorities. In many cases, a negotiated settlement will allow you to pay less than your total tax liability. When successful, these negotiations result in what is called an offer in compromise, which could settle your IRS or state tax debt for pennies on the dollar.

There are three situations in which you may qualify for tax relief through an offer in compromise:

  1. You do not have the resources to pay the tax. Based on your assets, income and expenses, you do not see how you could pay the taxes.
  2. You do not owe the tax. For whatever reason, previous tax calculations were incorrect.
  3. Collecting from you would be unreasonable or unfair. Some special circumstances may warrant relief.

Let our attorneys present and negotiate a settlement for you. With settlement based on many factors, let us make your best case for relief to the IRS or state taxing agency. Relief can be based on a variety of factors (e.g., medical condition, financial circumstances or improper assessment of tax). Whatever the reason, let us analyze your situation and ensure that it works for you.

Can I Negotiate An Offer In Compromise On My Own?

Yes, a taxpayer can attempt settlement without a tax lawyer. In most cases, however, these settlement attempts are rejected. Unrepresented taxpayers often fail to follow proper procedure or present their case persuasively, even though they may have a legitimate basis for reducing their tax debt. As the procedures and guidelines have become more complex and as success rates for those seeking relief without legal representation have decreased, you need a lawyer in your corner.

We improve your chances of success. We speak the IRS’ language. After carefully analyzing your financial situation, we will identify the most advantageous procedure and law to improve your chance of success.
