During an income tax audit or examination, the IRS and all states allow a taxpayer to have an authorized representative. The representative must have permission to practice before the IRS or state, and specific credentials are required. As an enrolled agent, we have the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS. We can help you to develop a strategy to defend your position.
IRS TAX REPRESENTATION
An IRS audit can be an intimidating and complex process. If you or your business face an IRS audit, we can bring to bear years of experience in dealing with tax matters and IRS audit procedures to ensure that you are properly represented when dealing with the IRS and other tax authorities.
OFFER IN COMPROMISE
An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you can't pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. The IRS will consider your unique set of facts and circumstances: Ability to pay, Income, Expenses, Asset equity. The IRS generally approves an offer in compromise when the amount offered represents the most they can expect to collect within a reasonable period of time. Explore all other payment options before submitting an offer in compromise. The Offer in Compromise program is not for everyone. We can help you to determine if you qualify to submit an Offer in Compromise.
A levy is a legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt. Levies are different from liens. A lien is a claim used as security for the tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt. If you do not pay your taxes (or make arrangements to settle your debt), the IRS may seize and sell any type of real or personal property that you own or have an interest in. For instance, The IRS could seize and sell your property (such as your car, boat, or house), or levy your property(such as your wages, retirement accounts, dividends, bank accounts, licenses, rental income, accounts receivables, the cash loan value of your life insurance, or commissions). IRS usually levy only after these three requirements are met: The IRS assessed the tax and sent you a Notice and Demand for Payment; You neglected or refused to pay the tax, and The IRS sent you a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing (levy notice) at least 30 days before the levy. The IRS may give you this notice in person, leave it at your home or your usual place of business, or send it to your last known address by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested. If a levy on your wages, bank account, or other property is causing a hardship you should call us and we will help to resolve your bank levy.

Wage garnishments continue until the entire debt is paid or arrangements are made to pay off the debt. Garnishments can be taken for any type of debt but common examples of debt that result in garnishments include child support, defaulted student loans, taxes, unpaid court fines. We are experts in wage garnishment procedures and can help.
