Methods for Tax Debt Relief

The Internal Revenue Service and the Oregon Department of Revenue are the two main tax agencies assigned to collect taxes from the public based on their financial status. They are ready to utilize their legal powers to collect the right amount of taxes from those who fail to pay them on time.

However, they are open to negotiations should the taxpayer in question be unable to pay their tax liabilities with an acceptable reason and offer tax relief. Down below are some of the tax debt relief programs offered by the government that you can apply for if you are having problems with your taxes:

“Currently Not Collectible” Status

If you cannot pay the debt for any reason but can pay it off at another date, you can apply for the currently not collectible status. The IRS will assess the reason you will provide as to why you will be unable to pay on time and when you will be able to pay.

If you are approved for this program, the IRS will not collect your taxes from you for a year to give you time to collect the funds. They will also regularly check if you will be able to restart paying your tax responsibility and give you more time if necessary. However, it is important to remember that you will still incur penalties and interest while under this status.

Filing for Bankruptcy

If your business has failed and you do not have any finances to pay off your debt or even start a new one, you can file for bankruptcy to resolve your debt. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is the most common bankruptcy filing and allows applicants to get rid of either a huge part of their debt or the entire debt forgiven. Meanwhile, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to negotiate an installment plan of either three to five-year terms to get the debt paid at a flexible pace. It is important to note that the Chapter 13 bankruptcy will still have penalties and additional fees, which will be incorporated in the monthly payments.

Innocent Spouse Relief

This program is allotted to individuals who do not wish to be tied with their spouse or ex-spouse’s tax debts and liabilities. If you are in this situation, you can file for the status directly to the IRS and prove that you are innocent of your spouse or ex-spouse’s actions which led them to incur financial debt.

Our legal team can also help you with other relief options applicable to joint filers, such as separation of liability relief and equitable tax relief.

Installment Plans

For a flexible tax debt relief program, you should go for installment plans. The IRS finds this solution ideal because this will allow them to collect the entire debt and the interest. Both parties will sit down to discuss the installment plan that will be followed and how much the monthly installment amount will be. Normally, installment plans can last up to 6 years, depending on the amount owed.

“Offer in Compromise” Program

The offer-in-compromise program is the last resort for a person who can’t pay their debts completely, even with the help of an installment plan, property levy, or other tax debt relief programs. With this program, if accepted, you will be allowed to settle your tax debt by paying a specified amount, not the total amount, while the rest of the amount will be forgiven automatically.

Usually, the IRS will request 20% of the entire debt as payment, but they are open to compromise if you are unable to pay the identified amount. We can negotiate with the IRS on your behalf to reach a reasonable amount that you can offer as a compromise without affecting your financial capabilities.

IRS Tax Debt Attorney

For taxpayers to avail themselves of one of the government’s tax debt relief programs, they must pass the IRS’s strict eligibility requirements and undergo a lengthy application process. If you are qualified to apply for your chosen tax debt relief program and pass the documents they request, it is not a guarantee you will be approved for the program because the IRS will scrutinize every single detail about your finances to see if you qualify for debt relief.
