Frequently Asked Questions

How can I appeal a letter or notice sent from the IRS?

If you have been audited and you also differ with the results, you've got the right. In addition, you may also file an income tax appeal in response to a tax lien, a a rejection of an offer in compromise, a tax levy, a fee, or if you otherwise differ with a tax liability alteration made by the IRS. If you received an Assessment Report from the Internal Revenue Service, write a protest letter, sign it, and mail it to the IRS before the deadline recorded in the Report. Provide a whole explanation and attach files that are relevant to your protest.

Do tax liens ever expire and go away?

Yes, the collection of most every IRS tax liens eventually finishes, and that would include yours. This is called the statute of limitations on IRS collections. The Internal Revenue Code grants the IRS a window of time to collect from you; you're free from the IRS and your tax debt, after that window closes. The IRS is limited to ten years to collect back taxes, after that, they may be barred by law from continuing collection activities against you. The IRS 10 year window starts when the IRS originally determines that you just owe taxes - that is usually when the result of an IRS audit becomes final.

Can I get fired in OR for having a wage garnishment?

Having a wage garnishment might be looked at by your Salem employer as a danger to possess you around cash or things that might disappear inexplicably. Maybe you are looked at as unreliable because there's evidence that you don't honor commitments or lacking good character, such as repaying what you owe. And last, bother the payroll individuals and your employer has to handle a court order. But be careful. If you have more than one garnishment, you may be fired by the company.

What should I do if I get a bank levy applied to my account?

An IRS levy permits the legal seizure of your property to satisfy a tax debt. It can garnish wages, take money in your bank or other financial account, sell and seize your vehicle(s), other personal property and real estate. Contact the IRS immediately, if you receive an IRS bill titled Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing. It's very important that you simply comply with the levy, if you receive an IRS notice of levy against your employee, vendor, customer or other third party.

Does an offer in compromise agreement effect your credit score?

Your credit score will not impact. The reason for this is because credit services are seeking relief or don't have any notion that you have filed an offer. The key is that your offer is accepted. The offer is accepted and paid, any tax lien should be published. You make sure the lien that is released is represented on your credit report and need to get in touch with the credit companies. An Offer in Compromise is among the tools the IRS uses to administer the tax laws of the United States and state of Oregon. When IRS believes the credit companies have no choices left, they'll enable qualifying businesses and people that file an Offer in Compromise to reduce their total tax burden.

(It's in the same class as a repossession or court judgments.) Oregon and/or local taxing authorities might also file tax liens. The IRS may restrict your ability to get credit once it files a Notice of a Federal Tax Lien against you. And even though you file for bankruptcy, your tax debt and lien may continue.

What percentages of Offer in Compromise agreements (IRS Fresh Start program) are accepted?

Since 2000 the number of repeat offers made by taxpayers, after an IRS rejection, has grown with the percentage ranging between 15% - 44% of the absolute variety of offers received by the Internal Revenue Service. OIC approval is rare for just two primary reasons: Either in the event the taxpayer does qualify, the taxpayer or she can not pay the offer amount, he will not qualify for an OIC or. The truth is, OIC qualification is based on a computation of the citizen's ability to pay her or his tax debt before the IRS runs out of time to collect the debt (called the collection statute expiration date). Our Salem professionals will be able to assist you to ascertain in case an OIC is a wise choice.

Can a wage garnishment be stopped or reversed?

In extraordinary cases, this can lead to a situation where it's hard or impossible that you satisfy your basic living expenses for Salem. Should you fall into this group, don't panic. You'll be given the chance to spell out your position to a judge and to prove your monthly income and living expenses.
