For tax debt amounts that are small and can be paid in full, there is no need to hire professional tax help. Taxpayers can simply pay the entire tax debt amount in a single payment. Remember that the amount to be paid will include penalties and interest. Taxpayers who cannot fulfill their entire tax debt need to qualify for a tax debt payment plan such as an Installment Agreement, Offer in Compromise, or Currently Not Collectible.
Taxpayers can use a tax service to prepare their tax case, explore options and find the best resolution, and represent and negotiate the case before the IRS. A tax service has tax attorneys and enrolled agents that ensure that the taxpayer gets the fastest, smoothest and the most favorable resolution.
To achieve a successful resolution, it is important to carefully pick the available options. For example, applying for a payment plan that you have no hope of qualifying for attracts a penalty. Hiring professional help takes the burden of the resolution off the shoulders of taxpayers. The tax service takes over the preparation and representation of the case, and works to achieve the best resolution possible.
While a tax service eases the path to a resolution, taxpayers must ensure that the tax service they choose is legitimate and honest. To help them in their search, they can check out our reviews and ratings of some of the top tax debt relief services.
