What Happens If You Owe Taxes?

Owing taxes to the IRS is always stressful because of the authority that the government agency wields. If you owe taxes to the IRS or are outstanding on other types of tax obligations, you could face different penalties, even if your tax debt is relatively small.

People who owe taxes to the IRS could be penalized by:

  • Growing interest on the tax debt
  • Garnished wages
  • Seized property
  • Criminal charges

How Can You Reduce Tax Debt?

Tax relief processes are designed to reduce the amount of taxes you owe and/or create a tax repayment plan that works better for your financial situation. Our tax relief attorneys have a long history of helping Texans in situations much like yours find a tax relief strategy that worked for them. We would be happy to go over your options and make a personalized plan for you, too.

Different methods and strategies to find tax relief include:

  • CNC status: Certain people with tax debt may be eligible to get “Currently Not Collectible” or CNC status, which means the IRS’s ability to collect or act against you will be deferred until the status expires. We can see if you’re eligible and get the process started to use this protection if you are.
  • OIC program: The “Offer in Compromise” (OIC) program allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the original amount, but only if you are eligible. Using the OIC program is one of the more common and effective forms of tax relief, so it is worth exploring this option with our legal team.
  • Tax lien removal: The IRS may put a lien on your property if you owe a considerable amount of taxes. We may be able to argue for the removal of a lien, but this process usually must be done within 30 days of its placement, so contact us today.
  • Installments: Our Fort Worth tax relief attorneys may be able to negotiate an installment agreement with the IRS. Such an agreement would allow you to pay your tax debt in workable installments, so you feel less financial pressure in your day-to-day life. Installment agreements can take several forms, including guaranteed, partial payment, non-streamlined, and more, so we’ll have to go over your options to find the one that fits your situation.
  • Innocent spouse relief: Did you accrue tax debt through divorce, but that debt should belong only to your spouse? The IRS may allow “innocent spouse relief,” which basically states that you won’t be held responsible for a tax debt that was originally accumulated by your spouse and not for any reasons that involve you.

Can Bankruptcy Provide Tax Debt Relief?

Bankruptcy might seem like an intimidating process on the surface, but you should know that it actually has many different benefits. Many bankruptcy filers are surprised to learn that some bankruptcy processes like Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 are capable of discharging tax debt, usually income tax debt. If you want to see if bankruptcy could help you find tax relief, you’re still in the right place. Our attorneys are highly familiar with bankruptcy processes and eligibility, so we can go over this tax relief option with you, too.

    “I needed an attorney who would stand up for me and my child during a very hard time. Mark was there to answer every question, every phone call and did it in a way that I felt as if I were his only client. He was very knowledgeable not only about the law but about the opposing attorney and the judge. He prepared me well and we won our case. I would recommend Mark Childress to anyone who is fighting for custody or in need of child support.”

  • I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care.

    “I called in inquiring about a divorce and how it all happens. I had 2 people call me back within an hour and in an hour maybe 2 I was talking with the lawyer. I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care. Divorce is the hardest thing we will go through minus losing a kid and his team will be retained. He even called me back himself the next day to see how I was. Great service.”

  • This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years.
