We help individuals and businesses in Harlingen, Texas with tax problems, including IRS penalties, interest, audits, tax debts.
The IRS audit rate is not high. This is particularly true for taxpayers in Harlingen, Texas. The IRS audit rate is at an all time low. This does not mean much for taxpayers who are actually audited. The IRS has been adjusting tax accounts for those selected for audit.
Instead of examining tax returns, the IRS has centralized its work. This has resulted in the IRS trying to work audits remotely. This often results in problems in trying to convince the IRS that tax return positions are correctly reported. This typically results in taxes being owed that are not legally owed. It also results in the assessment of tax penalties, which may not have been assessed had the IRS met with and gained a better understanding of the taxpayer and their positions.
The IRS has also started to focus on collecting old tax debts. Unlike IRS audits, the chance of being contacted by the IRS for a tax debt that is outstanding has increased. This is even true for taxpayers in Harlingen.
At the same time, the IRS has beefed up its processes for dealing with unpaid taxes in light of recent economic difficulties. These changes have made it easier to resolve some unpaid tax debts.
This makes it an ideal time to try to resolve unpaid tax liabilities. This is true even if the taxpayer was not successful in working with the IRS to resolve their debts in the past.
We can help with this. We help taxpayers, including taxpayers in Harlingen, with IRS audits and unpaid tax debts. Please contact us immediately If you are in Harlingen and are under audit by the IRS or have an unpaid tax debt.
