Most people are aware of when they owe taxes and may not have taken the proper steps to pay completely the amounts required. However, some undergo a surprise audit from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and may only then realize that they have been unknowingly not paying the required amounts and are then faced with a hefty bill for the back taxes. In addition, others have planned their current tax situation on past filings and with the current changes, may have been faced with owing this year instead of getting a refund.
There are obvious benefits to paying your taxes on time, but no matter your current situation, understanding that options exist for repayment to the IRS for any and all taxes is worthwhile information that is often hard to find. In general, people rarely want to discuss their finances openly, even amongst friends, so relying on word of mouth or even helpful services can reach a dead end. Instead, individuals often find themselves in a difficult situation and then are scurrying for information or help without considering all of the proper avenues for a resolution.
Yes, these government entities are allowed to collect any monies they are owed by a variety of different methods, but there are options for those who are indebted to the IRS. Consider some of these or discuss the likelihood of one being applied to your current situation before moving forward.
If the amount due is considerably more than an individual or company could pay within a one-time payment, the IRS will work with you to create a payment plan. Whether this involves garnishing wages or another method of repayment, there is often an ability to significantly reduce the due amount or at least extend this repayment method over time.
Unless you are a repeat offender, getting the penalties assessed either reduced or negated is always an option. While the IRS is not likely to ever take away any interest that may be owed, addressing the penalty portion of a tax bill can significantly reduce the total amount due.
Acquiring professional help also gives you someone in your corner who can keep an open line of communication with the IRS and their representatives. Instead of facing them alone, these individuals can set up settlement negotiations based on your current income levels and potentially help reach an agreement that both sides are agreeable upon. Doing so can greatly reduce the amount of stress involved in the process while also achieving an end goal and something taxpayers can work towards as the process transpires.
