Here is a quick look at a few of the services that we provide:

Quickly Removing Wage Garnishments

One of the first, and most common areas that we cover is removing  Wage Garnishments. The IRS has the unfortunate ability to go into the business you work for, talk to your employer (or whoever takes care of payroll), and garnish a portion of your paycheck every month to start to pay off your tax debt. This can put a serious hurt on whatever monthly expenses that you have (child payments, rent, alimony, insurance, etc.), and they will continue to do so until someone stops them.

If you have found yourself in this unfortunate situation, it’s time to get help from a lawyer that has dealt with this many times over. Our firm can get these wage garnishments removed very quickly, so you can get back on your feet and pay the multiple obligations that you already have every month without the IRS garnishing your hard earned income.

Helping to Negotiate Offer in Compromise Agreements

One of the best ways to save a TON of money on your tax debt is to negotiate an Offer in Compromise with your revenue officer and the IRS. These can be very difficult for normal taxpayers to qualify for, but if you can, you can expect to save 70%, 80%, 90% or even more on the amount you owe.

What they are looking for with these agreements is the inability to repay your tax debt in a timely manner. In most cases, this is because your monthly expenses exceeds your gross monthly income, but there are a multitude of other exemptions and exclusions based on circumstances, such as medical emergencies, natural disasters (hurricanes, tornados, fires, etc.), death, and more.

You really want to be careful with what you disclose to the IRS though, because if you give up too much information on your specific situation, they may be able to add on more penalties, interest charges, and more to the total debt that you have.

The best way to try and negotiate an Offer in Compromise is to have an attorney do the dealings for you. We deal with these individual statues, exemptions, laws, and regulations every single day, so we know the best ways of getting results. Sure you can do it yourself, just like you could completely build your car from the ground up, but its much better and faster to have a accredited professional do it for you. Give us a call today at (713) 533-8299 for a free consultation, and to see if you would qualify for the offer in compromise program.

Removing Bank Levies and Tax Liens

If you have had an outstanding tax liability (debt that you owe), for a while, the IRS has the ability to place a federal tax levy or tax lien on your property, including your house, cars, boats, RVs, land, possessions, and more. If they place a tax lien on your property, this means that the federal government is now the legal owner of whatever they claim, and you can no longer do anything without first taking care of your debt. You can’t sell, re-finance, or do anything else with this property until that is taken care of. This means they are the actual owner and lien holder of your mortgage, house and property.

The next step up from a¬†lien is a full on bank and property levy, where they actually come in and seize your possessions to pay off your back tax debt. They can literally kick you out of your house, take your cars, jewelry, electronics and anything else of value to pay back your debt. No, this isn’t the mafia – it’s your federal government.

If you have had either a lien or a levy placed on your home or property, you need to deal with this immediately before it gets any worse. Our team of lawyers have dealt with these exact issues many times, and have the experience and knowledge to get these removed right away.

Relief from Penalties and Interest Charges

Chances are that if you have built up a back debt with the IRS, then you have been slapped with numerous penalties, interest charges, and more. Often times these alone can add up to be much more than what the actual tax debt comes out to be! But not to worry, our lawyers have tons of experience in getting these charges wiped clean, so through a few IRS debt forgiveness programs, you can have a clean start.

These interest charges can add up very similar to a mortgage, where in the end, the lender (in this case the IRS), is owed an amount double or triple what you actually owed to start with. The sooner you can deal with it, the less debt you will pay.

Negotiating Payment Plans (Installment Agreements)

One of the most effective ways of getting relief on the amount you owe is to arrange a structured payment plan (or Installment Agreement) for your remaining tax debts. This means that you can spread out payments on the debt, and pay over time instead of all at once. This allows you to live your life as normal, instead of having to plan for a huge payment up front, and still worry about normal living expense.

We can help you negotiate the right payment plan to comply with IRS statues and regulations. Just give us a call and we can have a one-on-one consultation to discuss your specific financial situation.

Handling All Business Taxes

For many business or franchised business owners, it’s very easy to get behind on federal taxes. You have to spend all of your time focused on actually¬†generating a healthy income, and making payroll for your employees, that you fall a bit behind. We can help you get back to a compliant, good-standing with the IRS. We have help hundreds of small business owners, professionals, servicemen, and more to get back on track with their tax debt. Some of the types of businesses around Houston that we’ve helped include:

  • Financial and Legal Professionals
  • Truck Drivers and Laborers
  • Small Business Owners
  • Franchise Owners
  • Entrepreneurs and Startups

So you are having issues paying back the tax debt that you’ve built up, give us a call today, and get some relief.

Picking the Right Lawyer (While Avoiding Scams)

In the tax relief industry (just like many other industries out there today), there are a small percentage of people and businesses pretending to be able to get you ridiculous results guaranteed, without even talking to you. These are clear scams, and have made victims of great people all over the country. These organizations will re-brand every year or two, and continue to scam people, but just under another name.

One of the best things you can do is to check out other verified, 3rd party reviews and ratings of whatever company you indent to work with, usually with the BBB and other places.

We do business as Instant Tax Solutions, and have an incredible A+ rating with the BBB, and thousands of satisfied clients all over the country, but especially in Houston.

How Much Can My Tax Debt Be Reduced?

Depending on your own individual situation, you can expect to reduce your tax debt by anywhere from 35% to 80% and beyond. If you have faced considerable financial hardship in Houston, for example medical emergency, job loss, or something different, you may qualify for some programs which may drastically lower your debt. But if you don't, simply by removing the IRS fees and interest charges, you can readily get 25% to 40% off of the amount you owe.

Should I Sign the Power of Attorney Form when Hiring a Tax Lawyer?

When hiring a tax lawyer, it is best that you sign the power of attorney form. The main reason behind this is because if you sign a power of attorney, your lawyer is able to communicate with the IRS so you don't have to. This could go a long way in reducing a number of the anxiety that has been put on you. The last thing you desire would be to wind up in prison in Houston and/or be slapped with large fines. Your tax attorney can help reduce your penalty, while you might not be able to prevent all difficulty.

How Should I Calculate my Offer in Compromise Agreement?

Your first step in determining whether to pursue an Offer in Compromise will be to estimate what the IRS terms your Reasonable Collection Potential (RCP). This really is essentially the heart of any Offer in Compromise and certainly will be the foundation of the conclusion as to whether to accept or reject your offer of the Internal Revenue Service, since the IRS requires that your offer equal or exceed your RCP. The Reasonable Collection Potential, basically, is what the IRS reasonably and potentially could expect to gather from the connection of your wages and income in Texas together with from the seizure of your assets from you in order to settle the tax assessment against you.

What Should I Do to Prepare for an Offer in Compromise Agreement?

In order to get ready for an offer in compromise deal, you must ensure the following are included in your offer in compromise package sent to the IRS: Cover letter and memorandum including the facts as well as a discussion of the law; Form 656-B (Pamphlet with forms) or 656-L; Form 433-A (OIC) or Form 433B (OIC) (not needed if Doubt as to Liability); Supporting records for Form 433A or B. In preparing an offer, ensure that you clearly state in the opening paragraph of the memorandum under what ground you're submitting the offer from Texas.

How Can I Eliminate My Tax Debt?

By asking for additional time to pay you can remove your Tax Debt. You can request to pay what you owe. For the Installment Plan by paying a tax debt of up to $25,000 off over as long as 60 months. Pay by debit card or credit card. You might have a credit card that offers a lower rate, maybe a zero percent teaser rate for a year. The IRA shuffle: You can not borrow from your IRA, but did you know that if you wish to transfer the funds from one account to another, you have 60 days to do this? In effect, this is the same as 60-day loan.

Can I reduce my Tax Debt on My Own?

While you can try and solve you tax problems on your own right from your home in Houston, it is advisable to leave it up to a tax professional. Your basement was flooded, and also in the event you were having a leak in your plumbing in the middle of the night, the best way to solve the issue quick is to call a specialist. The very same thing applies to tax difficulties. Save money yourself the time and hassle of attempting to figure it out yourself, and merely leave it up to our Texas tax specialists.

How Can I Get My Tax Debt Forgiven?

This is the process the IRS uses to immobilize the collection account. The bureau stops any efforts to apply collection in order to give you time to get back on your own feet financially. While it's not a permanent fix to your Texas tax issue, it does help significantly by ceasing wage levies, bank levies and property seizures. To obtain status that is uncollectible, you should file a financial statement on Form 433A for people, and Form 433B for companies. The financial statement shows the IRS that all the money you get is needed to supply necessary living expenses for your family.

How Much Do Tax Lawyers Cost?

Most qualified and reputable tax attorneys in Houston will charge their clients on an hourly basis for all services. This will normally be an hourly fee of between $200 and $400. In most cases, a tax attorney will require their client make a prepayment, which is known as a retainer. This retainer will be a prepayment on the basis of the number of hours your tax lawyer believes they'll be working on your own behalf. This hourly fee will be deducted from the retainer, as the work nears end.

Does Tax Debt Affect My Credit Score?

Should you make an application for a personal loan to cover a bigger-than-anticipated tax bill, your monthly payment record along with the loan amount will likely be noted in your credit reports. Although the fall is temporary, as well as the loan application itself will count as an inquiry into your credit , which can lower your credit score a little bit. In case you must apply for a personal loan in Houston to cover a tax bill, start by obtaining a free look at your credit strengths and weaknesses using a Credit History Card. Minimize loan applications by finding out a lender's minimum credit score requirements beforehand. Select a lender in Texas with credit conditions that fit your credit score.

Can Tax Debt Be Included in a Chapter 13?

How a tax debt will probably be treated in Chapter 13 bankruptcy depends on whether it's a priority or non-precedence tax obligation. Precedence tax debts are not dischargeable in bankruptcy and also you have to pay them off in full through your Chapter 13 repayment plan. In comparison, non-precedence tax obligations are treated the same as your other general unsecured debts (for example credit cards and medical bills) and wiped out when you receive your discharge. Therefore, you can't eliminate them merely by filing for bankruptcy and receiving a discharge. If you file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Houston, you should pay off your priority tax debts in full through your repayment plan.
