Relieving You From The Burden Of Tax Debt
If you have insurmountable outstanding tax debts, one option for handling them is filing bankruptcy. Through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, debtors can discharge certain taxes or implement a repayment plan to the IRS. Most taxes do not qualify for discharge through bankruptcy – only federal income tax. However, this relief can make an immense difference when it comes to your finances.
Yes, We Can Negotiate With The IRS
One way to manage outstanding taxes is to work with the Internal Revenue Service on an offer in compromise. An offer in compromise (OIC) is a bargain to settle your tax liabilities for less than what you currently owe. The IRS understands that an OIC is often the best way to recover as much tax debt from a taxpayer as possible. Another option for you is an installment agreement, in which you work with the IRS to negotiate a plan to repay your liabilities in installments. Our lawyers are hard-nosed and skillful when it comes to negotiating. We do everything in our power to minimize the amount you owe or work out a beneficial installment agreement.
