Common Tax Solutions

Offer in Compromise

If qualified, you can settle your debt with the Internal Revenue Service for just pennies on the dollar with an Offer in Compromise Program. The IRS allows taxpayers to settle the debt with the IRS on tax debt that has been incorrectly assessed or for other liabilities that they cannot afford to pay.

IRS Payment Plans

If you don't qualify for the Offer in Compromise Program, then a payment plan may be o good option to resolve your tax debt issues. IRS payment plans can be implemented so long as a tax debt is fully paid within a six year period.

Filing Back Tax Returns

You risk losing your refund if you don't file your return. If you are due a refund for withholding or estimated taxes, you must file your return to claim it within 3 years of the return due date. The same rule applies to a right to claim tax credits such as the Earned Income Credit.

Levy lifting

The IRS can place a levy on your income that will garnish your wages on a continuous basis. This means that a wage garnishment from the IRS will take money from your current paycheck and will also apply this procedure to future paychecks. Money will be taken from your payroll until your tax debt is satisfied in full or until the levy is lifted.

Late Tax Return Filing

File all tax returns that are due, regardless of whether or not you can pay in full. File your past due return the same way and to the same location where you would file an on-time return. You risk losing your refund if you don't file your return. If you are due a refund for withholding or estimated taxes, you must file your return to claim it within 3 years of the return due date. The same rule applies to a right to claim tax credits such as the Earned Income Credit.

Innocent Spouse Relief

Innocent spouse relief was designed to address the situations in which one spouse is the victim of fraud perpetrated by the other spouse. If your tax refund was taken by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to pay for your spouse's past-due obligations, you may be eligible for innocent spouse relief.


Penalty Abatement

The IRS can impose penalties for filing tax returns after the due date or unpaid taxes after reporting. The penalties can be abated if the case is presented carefully. Reasonable causes include:

  • Death in a family
  • Medical illness
  • Natural disasters
  • Record destruction
  • Significant financial difficulties

There is no guarantee of abatement, but your chances increase with the help of a tax professional.

Offer in Compromise

It can be challenging to apply for an Offer in Compromise. The IRS rejects most requests. Your chances improve with the help of tax professionals like Public Tax Corp. We offer:

  • "Discovery" stage: reviewing your case on the IRS side
  • Comprehensive analysis of relief eligibility
  • Preparation of the application
  • Ensure the offer works for our clients
  • Full support of the OIC case

Installment Agreement

For taxpayers unable to pay their taxes in full, they can make payment agreements. If repayment cannot be made within 180 days, an installment agreement may be possible. Before the IRS considers an installment agreement, all tax returns must be filed. If the IRS approves the agreement:

  • Penalties and interest will continue to be charged
  • Any future refunds will be applied to the tax debt
  • All future taxes must be paid on time

CNC Status

Sometimes, a taxpayer agrees they owe the IRS but cannot pay due to their current financial status. If the IRS accepts that they cannot pay tax and their basic living expenses, an account may be placed in CNC (Currently Not Collectible) status. Public Tax Corp helps you provide information for an IRS review. Interest and penalties continue to accrue. An annual review takes place

Filing Back Taxes

Filing back taxes is easier than you may think. There are a few steps to take:

  • Gather information for the years you want to file
  • If W-2s, 1099s, or deduction or credit information is unavailable, the IRS has a form to use to request information on file for you.
  • Public Tax Corp can help file back taxes at the same rates as the current year taxes are filed.

Levy Lifting

The IRS and state government agencies can levy bank accounts, garnish wages, or seize property to satisfy a tax debt. If a notice of intent to levy is issued, act quickly to get professional help. It shows the IRS you are actively attempting to achieve a solution. The tax professional is given a power of attorney to speak for you, which stops the state or IRS from contacting you directly.
