The IRS Always Gets the Money they Are Owed
When the IRS discovers that someone didn’t file taxes or filed them improperly, they can act right away. There are times when the IRS will take money directly out of your paycheck when you fail to pay your taxes through a wage garnishment. They can also take the money when you sell a piece of property by putting a tax lien on it. A tax lien will stay on your credit report and haunt you for years to come. This can be especially harmful for people in Tennessee.
The IRS Is Fair When It Comes to Paying Taxes
The IRS is willing to work with people to pay off their back taxes in a fair and responsible way. If you have limited funds but can sell something of value to get a large chunk of money quickly, talk to an agent at the IRS about an offer in compromise where you pay a portion of what you owe have the rest forgiven.
There are also TN tax relief incentives that you can use to decrease the amount you have to pay to the IRS. They will help you find deductions you overlooked or help to actually provide you with funding to put toward your taxes.
Don’t Get Overwhelmed by Back Taxes
It’s important to remember that owing back taxes isn’t the worst thing in the world. There are times when mistakes are made, and you could be released from all obligations to pay the taxes if you simply talk to an agent about your situation.
If your spouse filed the taxes and made a mistake, ask the agent to allow you to file for innocent spouse relief. This allows you to prove to the IRS that you didn’t know that a mistake was made, and they may find that you aren’t responsible for the debt.
