Methods for Tax Debt Relief

Both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Connecticut Department of Revenue are the ones assigned to collect taxes from both individual and corporate taxpayers in the country. They make sure that taxes are paid on time and in the right amount, going after those who fail to pay their taxes on time or completely.

Fortunately, they do offer tax debt relief options for those who cannot pay their taxes for legitimate reasons, and it is not uncommon to hear stories of people appealing to the IRS to be approved for one of these programs. If you find yourself in this situation, you can count on our Old Lyme tax debt attorneys to improve your chances of getting into one of the following tax debt relief programs:

“Currently Not Collectible” Status

If you need more time to pay your tax debt, you can apply for the “currently not collectible” status from the IRS. Under this program, the IRS will not collect your tax debt for a year or more until you are ready to pay off your tax debt. The agency will regularly check your financial activity to see if it’s time to collect your tax debt. You will still be asked to pay interests and penalties on top of your tax debt.

Filing for Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is the preferred option for those who wish to get their tax debt reduced or forgiven completely, but it has major implications, if approved, to one’s credit score and capacity to request new credit.

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy are the most popular options for bankruptcy filings. Chapter 7 opens the possibility of getting rid of the debt completely or a huge chunk of it depending on the type of tax debt you have. Meanwhile, Chapter 13 enables taxpayers to negotiate a three or five-year repayment plan to pay off their tax debts and have a lower penalty and interest scheme.

Innocent Spouse Relief

This tax debt relief program is suited for taxpayers who wish to escape the scrutiny of the IRS when their spouse or ex-spouse commits tax violations or owes taxes. You will need to show the IRS that you are unaware of your spouse or ex-spouse’s actions and that you are innocent of any wrongdoing. If approved, you will not be included in the investigations done by the agency and asked to pay your spouse’s or ex-spouse’s tax liabilities.

Our legal team can help you apply for this status, as well as other similar relief options suited for joint filers, such as the separation of liability relief and equitable tax relief.

Installment Plans

The installment plan is the most popular option picked by taxpayers who wish to get tax debt relief, and the IRS is very open in accepting requests for this program. We can negotiate with the IRS for a manageable installment plan that can last up to 6 years depending on the tax amount you owe the agency. We will also request lower penalties that will be added to the monthly payment amount to make it bearable for your finances.

“Offer in Compromise” Program

If you are a taxpayer who can’t afford your tax debt, even if the IRS allows you to avail of an installment plan or other tax debt relief program, you can opt for the “offer in compromise” program. Under this program, you can pay a small percentage of your tax debt as a “compromise,” and the rest of the tax debt is forgiven by the IRS.

For taxpayers who qualify under this program, the IRS may ask you to pay at least 20% of your total tax debt while the rest is forgiven. We can negotiate with the IRS to reach the ideal agreement for this program and get the lump-sum payment that works with your financial capability.
