IRS FRESH START PROGRAM
The IRS has put together a program the Fresh Start Initiative. You may have heard of it. This program is aimed at taxpayers owing less than $50,000 to help streamline the burden of the collection process for both the taxpayer and the IRS. The guidelines offer some very attractive tax savings for qualifying taxpayers. It is highly recommended to have a trained tax professionals work with you through this program to guarantee you obtain the result you desired. The tax help focuses on three components: the Release of Federal Tax Liens, streamlined Installment Agreements, and IRS tax settlements through the Offer in Compromise program.
OFFER IN COMPROMISE (“OIC”)
An Offer in Compromise is the optimum tax relief program. The majority of taxpayers seeking assistance with their tax debt want to go down this path. The OIC program is geared towards taxpayers in financial hardship or with certain exceptional circumstances that would create financial hardship if required to pay their tax debt. An Offer in Compromise will typically take 10 to 12 months, but the result of a fresh start is worth the wait. 95% of Flat Fee Tax Service, Inc.'s clients have saved 96% of their tax debt.
Settling with the IRS is NOT a matter of pulling numbers from the sky. Do not be fooled by advertising that indicates that the IRS settles all case for a certain percentage. The Offer in Compromise - Doubt as to Collectability is doable by working a financial formula.

Here are just some of the service offerings Flat Fee Tax Service may discuss with you during your tax consultation:
Removing tax liens

Help with tax preparation
Representation before IRS Revenue Officers
CURRENTLY NOT COLLECTIBLE (“CNC”)
This is a very popular option for those taxpayers who owe less than $10,000 (the Offer in Compromise minimum), can’t afford monthly payments but may have assets of value that they do not want to sell or have taken from them. If your current monthly income is less than your monthly expenses, this is a good place to start when choosing a resolution path. The IRS requires an IRS Form 433-F (financial) to calculate your monthly income and expenses and show that you have no disposable income at the end of the month.
IRS INSTALLMENT AGREEMENT (“IA”)
Most taxpayers can resolve their tax debt with this option. Most of the time the total tax debt is paid in full, but the burden of paying a large amount at one time is shifted over a number of months without the threat of enforcement action. There are many different types of IA’s, usually depending on the amount of tax debt you owe and your compliance history. How the Installment Agreement is set up can prevent you from having tax liens filed as well as remove previously filed liens, as long as you agree to the terms of your IRS payment plan. The IRS may require that the payment is made by debit card to avoid a tax lien.
IRS PENALTY ABATEMENT (“PA”)
This is usually the best option for taxpayers with high net worth due to the fact that they will not qualify for most of the other hardship programs offered by the IRS. It is best to have the tax debt paid in full before petitioning for abatement because even after the penalty abatement is accepted, new penalties will be added to the debt if the taxes are not yet paid in full, leaving taxpayers in the same position. The IRS will require a one page summary of why you are entitled to a penalty abatement. You only get "one shot" at this. You must show a reasonable cause. A reasonable cause can be bad tax advice, a divorce, medical, loss of job, etc. It;'s better to have an IRS Tax Attorneys handle a penalty abatement but if you want to DIY, submit a well-written penalty abatement letter along with Form 843 to the correct IRS address.
RELEASE OF FEDERAL TAX LIEN
You can expect the IRS to file a tax lien once a taxpayer owes more than $5,000. A tax lien can be viewed as similar to an "insurance policy". A federal tax lien is a passive collection technique. A tax lien will protect the government’s interest in collecting the debt owed to them. A tax lien can only be removed once the tax debt is paid in full unless you qualify for release under the provisions of the IRS Fresh Start Initiative Program. Once again, if you want to DIY, you can request a hearing before your federal tax lien is filed if you respond to your notices.
IRS GARNISHMENT RELEASE
An IRS garnishment is a continuous levy on your paycheck that remains in place until your employer receives notice of release. Tax garnishments on your wages can only be released by submitting full financial information. Once the tax garnishment is released, consider an Offer in Compromise or you must enter into an installment agreement to avoid future collections.
IRS BANK LEVY RELEASE
The IRS can issue a one-time levy on your bank account(s) and has rights to all of the funds in your accounts, up to the total balance due. You have 21 days from the date the tax levy was issued to get your money back. The tax levy 21-day window includes Saturday, Sundays and holidays. If you have a bank levy, you don't have any time to waste.
THE IRS TAX ATTORNEYS AT
FLAT FEE TAX SERVICE ROUTINELY STOP AND RELEASE A IRS GARNISHMENT IN ONE DAY.
TAX RETURN PREPARATION - UNFILED TAX RETURNS
Taxpayers need to be what the IRS calls "compliant". Having unfiled tax returns is against the law. This is a "GIANT NO-NO". IRS Compliance means the last six years of tax returns must be filed. You simply need to file missing tax returns to become compliant again with the IRS. Our IRS tax relief firm can prepare any tax return, personal or business. Many taxpayers who owe for older tax years usually have many years that have not been filed and the IRS has decided to create a tax debt by use of a Substitute for Return. You cannot settle your tax debt or arrange an IRS Installment Agreement without being compliant.
