    Frequently Asked Questions
    About IRS Tax Debt Relief

    The term tax relief refers to various IRS payment plans that are designed to help taxpayers and businesses reduce their tax bills and settle outstanding taxes. This includes Installment Agreements, Currently Non-Collectible StatusOffer in Compromise, and Penalty Abatement.

    The best way to resolve IRS tax debt is to pay what you owe in full. If you are not in a position to do so, for whatever reason, you can explore the different IRS payment plans and apply for one that best fits your circumstances. An IRS tax debt attorney can help you in that regard.

    An experienced IRS tax lawyer is best placed to help you with IRS debt. The IRS has different payment plans that appeal to different taxpayers that owe back taxes. A seasoned lawyer will first understand your case and circumstances before helping you to seek relief using the best payment agreement.

    To qualify for an IRS Tax Forgiveness Program, you must owe the IRS at least $10,000 in back taxes. Another basic condition is that you have to prove to the IRS that you are unable to pay back the outstanding amount in a reasonable amount of time.

    Yes, the IRS has different debt relief programs that allow taxpayers to settle their taxes for less than what they actually owe. You have to check if you qualify for an IRS debt forgiveness program before applying, or consult an IRS attorney.

    Yes. The tax debt relief program is legitimate, but you must always be alert to the presence of scammers who take advantage of the IRS program. If you can’t do it yourself, make sure to consult an established IRS debt tax attorney for reliable help with IRS debt.

    If you can’t pay your taxes, you may request a payment plan (including an installment agreement). Sometimes, taxpayers qualify for a partial installment agreement, when the household income is less than the amount needed to pay the IRS debt within a specified amount of time. Each IRS debt relief option has different requirements, and some may even require a fee.

    The IRS has a debt forgiveness program that is available to qualifying taxpayers. You will need to apply to be accepted into the program. There are specific qualifications to meet requirements of the program. After you agree to the terms of your IRS debt forgiveness program, the IRS will keep assessing your financial situation.

    There are several ways to avoid attracting a tax audit. These include:

    • Not reporting a ‘net business loss’
    • Being specific when listing your expenses
    • Providing supporting paperwork and explanations for your expenses
    • Filing and paying your taxes on time
    • File accurate returns the first time to avoid amended returns
    • Make sure the information in your tax return aligns with what is in government-issued forms, such as 1099-INT, 1099-DIV.
    • Avoid excessive deductions
    • Avoid using the same figures for your deductions
    • Answer all questions and leave nothing blank
    • Use Schedule C to report all small business earnings

    The best way to get IRS problem resolution when it comes to tax levies and liens is to pay what you owe in full. The IRS will release the lien 30 days after you settle your tax debt. If you believe the IRS action is a mistake, get in touch with the government agency to get a resolution. In all situations, you can always get professional help from IRS debt lawyers.

    Yes. First-time Penalty Abatement is also known as One-time forgiveness. It is an IRS program that waives any penalties for filing errors and late payments. You may not qualify for the program if your filing is exceedingly late, or you are the subject of multiple unresolved penalties.

    It is never too late to reach a payment settlement with the IRS. You will first need to ascertain whether the IRS has filed a substitute return. Next, you need to file all outstanding returns before you can seek Penalty Abatement for late filing and requesting a payment agreement for the tax debt.

    The best way to get rid of back taxes is to pay what you owe as soon as possible. If you are not in a position to do so, you can seek IRS debt forgiveness, allowing you to settle for less than what you owe.

    The best way to get out of tax debt is to file and pay all outstanding taxes immediately. You can also request a payment plan to settle your tax debt for less than what you owe.

    Yes. You can negotiate with the IRS if you owe income or payroll taxes to get IRS debt relief. There are different payment plans that you can request from the IRS if you meet the requirements.

    If you owe the IRS and can’t afford to pay, you should request a payment plan. A payment plan has the effect of reducing your tax debt, but you will still accrue interest on the outstanding amount.

    Negotiating a settlement with the IRS is usually a very grueling process. The best proposal you can make to the IRS is making a payment of 20 percent of what you owe and the balance within five months or five payments. The longest payment period the IRS will accept is 24 months.

    The IRS is always ready to collect what is owed from taxpayers. You can discuss matters with the IRS to see if they will negotiate the liability. However, the best way to safeguard your interest is to leverage the experience of a tax relief attorney.

    I called to see if they could help reduce some penalties and fees. The person I spoke with told me it might be counterproductive for them to take my case since their feels would likely equal the amount of penalty/interest abatement. I decided to pass on moving forward but was so happy to hear a legal team, or any business for that matter, who has that much integrity. I feel most others would likely try to take my money anyway. I hope I never have to go through this again, but if I do, I will definitely use the Law Offices of Nick Nemeth!

    By far the best attorneys I have ever worked with. They’re are very helpful and supportive from day one. They went above and beyond to make sure all my documents were submitted on time and gave updates as soon as they received them. I cannot name a single flaw in their work. Their team of assistants are very professional and seem to all be on the same page. I’ve made multiple phone calls and sent a ton of emails to their staff and they were able to help me all through the course of the case. I cannot express my gratitude enough for how excellent they handled my case.

    My first appointment I had with, Tax Attorney Nick Nemeth, gave me such a sense of relief. He listened and gave me his professional advice, Mr Nemeth took my case. I was well kept updated, by phone calls and letters. That really impressed me and gave me so much confidence in them. The case went on for a couple of months. The day I received the call from one of his team members Kyle, informing me that the case was resolved and that I owed absolutely nothing to the IRS, I was overwhelmed with joy. I would recommend this law firm to anyone that needs help, with any tax issue. Thank you, to the Law Firm of Attorney Nick Nemeth and his team.

    I received a tax bill in the mail from the IRS last year in 2023. The fees and penalties I owed were something I myself could not afford. I reached out to Nick Nemeth's firm and received the best experience you could imagine. The team was professional, educational, and fast. If you have a tax issue with the IRS using another firm other than Nick Nemeth's would be an error in judgment. I would recommend their services above others.

    Working with Nick Nemeth and his team to resolve my debt with the IRS was the best decision I could have made. I felt such relief knowing I didn’t have to deal with the IRS myself. They did a wonderful job and were responsive to my questions and kept me abreast of my case. My outcome was exactly what I was hoping for. I strongly recommend using them if you have an issue to resolve with the IRS.

    I had an incompetent tax preparer, who also ignored several notices from the IRS, which in the end resulted in a lien on my property. I did not know what to do and an attorney friend recommended that I contact the Nick Nemeth Law Offices. I met with Jamie Flores and Ivan Nalbantov in December 2021 for a free consultation, and right away was impressed by their thorough examination of my paperwork and extensive knowledge of IRS tax laws. I felt not pressured and appreciated their advice and in the end decided that I would pursue resolving the issue by myself. I paid the IRS Civil Penalty and, as recommended also submitted a letter to the IRS requesting a refund and explaining what happened. I am glad to report that my persistence finally paid off. My case took two years to resolve and I finally received a full abatement/refund check from the IRS in December 2023. I could not have done this without the straightforward recommendation of Jamie and Ivan; and I highly recommend the Nick Nemeth Law Offices to anyone needing help with the IRS.

    I would like to thank Mr. Nick and his staff for the superb help that I received from them. My IRS problem was resolved quickly and efficiently. It took 2 visits to convince me that I was over my head. I thought that I could call the IRS, appeal my tax notices and settle on a payment plan on my own. After many phone calls to the IRS, waiting sometimes more than 4 hours with no resolution to speak of, it proved to be extremely difficult and stressful. Revisiting Mr. Nick was a huge wake up call. My account was reviewed, and a payment plan was established with the IRS within a week. I will be forever grateful to the staff who worked on my case and especially to Lorna who listened to me vent while going through this painful process.

    I cannot say enough good things about Nick and his team. When I first met with Nick he was up front, honest, friendly and efficient. When I worked with one of his attorneys, Eric B, I was just as pleased. All of the staff there are nice and very helpful. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get help with my issue. Over 6yrs I tried getting through and getting anywhere with the IRS and hardly made any progress. I know this may not be the case for all, and even I thought it would take longer than it did, but 3mos and they had my situation straightened out. I still can't believe it. Thank you thank you THANK YOU for all that you did for me. This is a huge burden gone out of my life now thanks to you. If anyone needs help out there, I know you may not want to shell out more money to get their help but it may just save you in the long run.

    The Nemeth Law team is exceptional. They treat their clients like a family member who is in crisis. They want you to get the best possible outcome. I really appreciate everything that they did for me. Jake and Ashley had the greatest role in my case and it all turned out for the best for me. Thank you Nick and team for easing my fears and getting me through the long process. I'm truly grateful.

    During a time in which competent, professional service at a fair price seems to have disappeared, Mr. Nemeth and his team are a refreshing breath of fresh air.From my first phone call to the final settlement of our case with a non-responsive IRS, they under-promised, over-delivered and were in constant courteous contact to make sure we knew exactly what was happening and where we stood.I hope to never need their services again, but, should I receive another friendly letter from the IRS...I know who to call!
