If you have over $10,000.00 in tax debt and your wages are being garnished, your bank accounts have been levied, there is a lien on your property, or your assets have been seized, it’s time to schedule a consultation with a tax debt lawyer.
For starters, a tax lawyer comes with attorney-client privilege, which means that all communication between you and your attorney are kept confidential. So, if any tax laws were broken, your attorney cannot testify against you, whereas an accountant may be obligated to report any tax law misdeeds.
A tax debt lawyer can also represent you through power of attorney, which means that your attorney can represent you in meetings with the IRS, handle correspondence with the IRS, and even represent you in tax court should your situation come to that.
Another reason to consult with a tax lawyer is because of the experience with resolving tax debt issues. While an accountant can prepare and guide you in identifying how much is owed in taxes, a tax attorney knows how to deal with the aftermath of delinquent tax payments and can negotiate with the IRS.
The cost of a tax attorney depends on the complexity of your tax debt. For instance, a regular installment agreement case can cost you between an average of $700 and $1500, whereas an IRS audit case can cost between $2000 and $5000 in attorney fees. It is best to discuss fees with your attorney during the consultation process to see if his rates are aligned with what you can afford and also what you hope to gain from retaining his services.
The length of time for your tax debt case to be resolved also depends on the complexity of your debt, the lawyer’s experience, and your desired outcome. It is best to schedule a consultation with a tax debt attorney to figure out a timeline for your case.
If you’re struggling with tax debt and your money is close to, if not already, being garnished by the IRS, you should schedule a consultation with a tax debt attorney to review your options. There may be a better option than your current situation. Complete the form to schedule a consultation.
