Act Quickly When You Owe Back Taxes
When you owe back taxes in South Dakota, it’s important to act quickly to resolve the issue so that you are not left dealing with repercussions that can occur. The IRS can take out a wage garnishment to get the money that you owe. While the amount will not be huge, it will still impact your monthly finances. They can also take out a tax lien on your property that reduces the amount of money you will get if you ever sell your home; the IRS will get their money one way or the other.
Discuss the Situation with an IRS Representative
It’s important to take the time to talk to an IRS representative directly to find out about your particular situation. He or she can let you know why you owe back taxes. If you didn’t file at all, you have to take responsibility for your failure to file.
If you allowed someone, such as your spouse, to file on your behalf and they made a mistake, talk to the representative to see if you can file for innocent spouse relief, which can you relieve you of some or all the money that you owe.
Reach an Arrangement for Payment of the Taxes

Getting tax relief is a lot easier than you may think.
