This is Part 6 of a 6 Debt.com series on taxes authored by Charles T. Almond of Tax Closure.
For an estimated 30 million Americans however, the suffocating feeling of back taxes and owing the IRS carries on for months and years after their April 15th deadline. There is no school in the nation that teaches IRS tax collection procedures yet there are many options for the well informed taxpayer to take back control of their tax situation. One of the best ways to resolve a back tax issue when you have no means to pay is to obtain Currently Not Collectible (CNC) status with the IRS. Obtaining Currently Not Collectible status eliminates the IRS’ attempt to collect and brings taxpayers back into good standing.
For this reason, my company Taxpayers Clinic, created a new program called Tax Closure, people who owe back taxes can take back control of their lives, eliminate back taxes and become current taxpayers with the proper knowledge. Tax Closure reveals little known information not generally available in the IRS collection process. By using this information the IRS can waive collection of many Americans’ unpaid taxes. Taxpayers Clinic has the power of a knowledge base second only to the IRS. Together with a vast network of former IRS employees and 28 years of pioneering taxpayer solutions, our newest offering navigates everyone through the IRS collection system and gives people with unpaid taxes a second chance. For the first time this proven method is available on the web to every American taxpayer for a tiny fraction of the cost other tax settlement companies normally charge.
The IRS is not in the business of ruining lives though some of their collection measures seem harsh. In fact, the IRS would rather have taxpayers current, in the system, and paying again. The IRS Collection Division is a significant component of the IRS. Learning how to communicate with this division is key to getting any resolution. Not paying and dodging back taxes does not solve the problem.
By teaching taxpayers how to properly communicate with the IRS (with the proper knowledge, forms, and financial data) most people can resolve their issues with the IRS on their own. Empowering taxpayers with the knowledge they need to get CNC status on their own changes the collection system dynamic. The well-equipped taxpayer can now go after the IRS and get out from underneath of the often unbearable burden of owing the IRS.
