We’ve been losing sleep over a new tax resolution client’s situation. This couple owes $43,000 to the IRS. They are penniless and living in a camper trailer behind a benevolent friend’s house. He is on social security (SSA) at $830 per month. She is unemployed.
They had an Arkansas business that went defunct. And when it did, they cashed out all of their retirement funds and gave it to the IRS, and were left with the $43,000 balance. This they did on the advice of a CPA they trusted. Then the couple got a FPLP levy on the SSA so they hired a tax relief company in California that they saw on a late night commercial. These guys have been hitting them for $150 per month since February, and haven’t gotten the levy removed. They also advised her to not get a job; terrible advice from all sides.
Our Arkansas tax resolution experts have been meeting with them and are working hard to bring resolution to their case. We can’t wait to bring peace back into their lives.
What a difference it would have made for them to get competent representation
at the beginning.
IRS representation is not an easy task. It takes extensive experience, diligence, and a passion for the tax resolution field. Before hiring a tax resolution professional, we encourage you to ask them these questions:
- In addition to being a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and/or an Enrolled Agent (EA), do you have SPECIFIC experience in tax problem resolution/IRS representation?
- Are you a member of the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS)?
- What is your success record as a tax resolution professional?
Getting the right IRS representation from the beginning is important. Contact our Arkansas tax debt experts if you’ve found yourself in an ugly tax situation.
