When You Need a Tax Resolution Specialist ?
As much as we'd like for all of our tax issues to be neatly wrapped up in a 30-minute episode, that's not how life works. Most people lack the expertise or representation necessary to go head-to-head with the government, but the IRS is staffed with attorneys and specialists who are well-versed in tax law.
What is a Tax Resolution Specialist ?
A certified tax resolution specialist (CTRS) aids clients with tax concerns by acting as a liaison between the customer and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). They have a thorough understanding of tax issues and are experienced negotiators. These professionals are Certified Public Accountants, IRS Enrolled Agents or Tax Attorneys.
After completing these degree programs, a CTRS must get job experience and obtain applicable qualifications before taking the CTRS test. You won't find anybody more knowledgeable in their profession than them. Those who hold the CTRS certificate must also complete continuing education requirements in order to preserve their eligibility.
So, when should I get in touch with a certified tax resolution specialist ?
Most individuals desire to save money by doing as much as they can themselves. This isn't, however, a case where you can change your own oil. When dealing with tax issues, it is important to contact a professional who is familiar with tax law and can negotiate on your side.
Here are 5 situations in which you should contact a CTRS :
1. When the IRS comes after you
If you're getting repeated IRS phone calls and letters to the point where you've stopped responding, it's time to hire a certified tax resolution specialist. The IRS is no longer authorized to contact you directly once you sign a power of attorney granting your CTRS the authority to represent you.
2. You owe a lot of money
When you owe the IRS more than $10,000, you need to know your payment alternatives. There are compromise proposals, penalty reduction schemes, and other options. You should usually see a specialist unless you are completely educated about such applications.
3. If you haven't filed taxes in over a year
There are many reasons why individuals do not file their taxes; some are excellent reasons, others are understandable reasons, and occasionally there is no good reason at all. If you haven't filed in a while for any reason, it's time to get in touch with a certified tax resolution specialist.
4. You don't know what to do
If you're dealing with back taxes, collections, payroll tax issues, wage garnishments, bank levies, or innocent spouse relief (among other things), you should see a tax resolution specialist. Tax rules and regulations are constantly changing, and it is the responsibility of your CTRS to keep up with this knowledge. It is critical to speak with someone who is familiar with the ins and outs of the tax system if you have any tax concerns.
5. The IRS, like you, is human and may make mistakes :
The IRS claims you owe a lot more money than you believe you do. Never take anything at face value; instead, keep in mind that the IRS is made up of humans, and all people are prone to making mistakes. Rather than accepting it, contact a CTRS to examine your case and determine who is truly at blame.
