If out of control consumer debt is a problem, unpaid tax debt can be dangerous. Both the IRS and Georgia Department of Revenue have collection and enforcement powers that include wage levy, asset seizure and even imprisonment.
The good news is that in recent years, both the IRS and Georgia D.O.R. have put into place programs that can allow you to get back into compliance with your tax obligations. Often this includes reductions in your liability and penalty abatement.
Wherever you are in the process and whether or not the taxing authorities have contacted you, our office can help. We will speak on your behalf with the IRS or Georgia D.O.R. and we can show you options that may be available in your particular case.
With huge deficits on both the federal and state level, the taxing authorities are redoubling their efforts to find taxpayers who owe money. And IRS computers are better and faster at finding you. At the same time, the government would rather see you get back in compliance and paying taxes going forward. Thus, there is room for negotiation.
