What is Tax Resolution?
Tax resolution is the process of working with the IRS and tax professionals to find a solution to your tax problems. The tax administrator may have problems with your tax return or tax situation for several reasons. For example, if you have a complicated tax return, the IRS may audit you to make sure you’re reporting the correct amount of income and claiming legal deductions. In some cases, the IRS may think you’ve underreported your income, and you may want to take a closer look at your tax situation.

Offer in Compromise
This is a partial payment of your total tax liability. To receive this tax credit, the IRS must not collect the total amount of tax for an exceptional reason. Questionable collectability and effective tax management are the most common approaches based on income, expenses, and assets.
Currently Non-Collectible Status:
In some cases, the IRS will agree to waive the tax collection if you cannot pay the tax. Although this will stop collection activity, it is a temporary stop. The Tax Office checks the ability to pay again to see if the taxpayer’s financial situation has improved.
The IRS has far greater powers than any other bill collector. The IRS has the power to put in place a wage garnishment, bank accounts, and other property.
Under some circumstances, you may have your tax liability discharged in bankruptcy or paid through a bankruptcy plan.
Innocent Spouse Relief
Many married taxpayers file a joint tax return because of certain benefits this filing status provides. In a joint tax return, both taxpayers are jointly and solely liable to pay the taxes and tax increases, interest, or penalties resulting from the joint tax return, even if they have subsequently separated. Joint liability means that each taxpayer is legally responsible for the entire liability. Thus, both spouses are usually responsible for all taxes owed, even if one spouse earned all of the income or claimed improper deductions or credits. This applies even if the divorce decree states that the ex-spouse is responsible for all sums owed.
Statute of Limitations Review
A ten-year statute of limitations runs from the IRS assessment date. The statutory period begins only when the taxpayer has filed a tax return. A substitute return (SFR) prepared by the IRS is not considered a filed return. If the statutory clock has started and the IRS has yet to collect a payment within ten years (assuming the statutory period is not interrupted), the tax is no longer due. The IRS must release the lien at the taxpayer’s expense. A careful review and analysis of your situation and IRS records will allow you to determine if the statute has expired.
If you file a joint return and all or part of your refund is applied against your spouse’s past-due federal tax, state income tax, child or spousal support, or federal nontax debt, such as a student loan, you may be entitled to injured spouse relief.
A reasonable cause statement is made to reduce or eliminate tax penalties and interest on your underlying liability.
A payment plan with the IRS to make regular and monthly payments to pay off the taxes owed.
IRS Tax Appeal
If you disagree with the decision by the IRS, you may request an appeal of your case.
