Back Taxes Owed

You have filed your returns but didn’t have the money to pay what was owed. You may think, “Oh well—I will catch up next year.” Before you know it, you find yourself several years in arrears and suddenly there is a notice from the IRS stating that you owe three or four times the original amount.

It’s truly amazing how fast tax penalties and interest add up. Now you have a choice, you can write a big fat check and pay the full amount, including interest and penalties. Or you can just keep ignoring them while the penalties and interest keep piling up and continue never being able to have anything in your name; No property, no vehicle, even your income (yes, that includes income as an independent contractor) is subject to garnishment.

Luckily, I can help you determine which options are available to you.

Bookkeeping Services

Although QuickBooks is designed for the layperson, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly, or the software may not process information accurately.  Which accounting method will you use? What chart of accounts do you need for your business? How do you handle beginning balances?

I can easily answer all these questions and complete the initial setup and installation in a timely manner. In addition, your accounting employees receive training on the accounting software to enhance their performance.

IRS Payment Plan

If you don’t qualify for the IRS Offer In Compromise program, a Payment Plan may be the way to resolve your problem. Setting up a payment plan with the IRS gives you a little more time to pay off your tax debts.

Unfortunately, penalties and interest will continue to be charged on your outstanding balance as you pay the debt off. 

The good news is that there’s a chance I can get your tax penalties removed.

Non-filed Tax Returns

Every day the massive computer center at the IRS is getting more sophisticated, it’s just a matter of time before they catch up with you.

Let me give you the peace of mind you deserve by helping you get in compliance with the law. If you voluntarily file your delinquent returns, you’ll likely avoid further problems other than having to pay the interest and penalties.

If you wait for the IRS to file your returns for you, they are filed as single, standard deduction and no expenses if a Schedule C (self-employment) is needed.  

Before anything can be done to extract you from this predicament all the returns must be filed. In most cases, you will likely owe taxes, interest, and penalties after the returns are filed.

Payroll Tax Problems

The IRS views failing to pay payroll taxes as the cardinal sin of tax delinquency because a large portion of the payroll taxes are your employees’ withholdings. Not paying your company’s payroll taxes is tantamount to stealing your employees’ money in the eyes of the IRS.

As a result, penalties for failing to pay your payroll taxes and filing your payroll tax returns on time are more severe than other types of penalties. They can drastically multiply the amount you owe in a very short time.

If you are behind on paying payroll taxes for your company, WATCH OUT!!! The IRS is extremely aggressive pursuing collection of this type of tax. They would rather seize your business assets, close you down, sell your assets at auction, and put you out of business than allow you to continue amassing additional payroll tax liabilities.

If you are behind on your payroll taxes, DO NOT meet with the IRS on your own. How you answer their initial questions can determine whether you stay in business or not. It is critical you hire a professional representative who knows how the IRS operates. Deena Stanley MBA, PLLC can provide you with Florida Tax Attorneys who can represent you.
