What is Tax Relief?

Tax Relief

Many people feel their confidence decreasing once they face the complex and grueling process of dealing with taxes. This is perfectly reasonable. There is a reason professionals such as enrolled agents and certified public accountants and tax relief programs exist. These professionals understand and can stay on top of the rules that apply to your jurisdiction so you don’t have to deal with the stress.

21% of Americans owe some amount of money to the IRS based on data released by the US Government Accountability Office. These are from taxes that were not paid on the year that they were due whether in part or in full. Although tax relief does not magically eliminate the tax money you owe, these types of services and programs can help lessen the burden by settling for a lower amount. There are different types of tax relief including tax deductions, tax credits, and tax forgiveness. In essence, tax relief consists of IRS programs that were designed to reduce one’s tax bill.


If you’re in a bind because you owe on taxes due to the IRS, there are certain ways to obtain tax relief. Here are some of the most popular methods to consider

IRS Repayment Plan

One of the common avenues for tax relief is an IRS Repayment Plan. This will allow you to split the total amount owed into manageable payments and avoid garnishments and levies. There will still be penalties and interest for the late payments until the balance is completely paid.

This payment plan can be short or long-term. Short terms tax relief spans up to 120 days while long-term plans go over 120 days. Only individuals are allowed to choose a short-term payment plan. There is also zero user or setup fee for short-term plans. Short-term payment plans allow $100,000 maximum in combined taxes, interest, and penalties owed. Long-term plans have fees and the maximum is $50,000 including combined taxes, interest, and penalties.

Offer in Compromise

Offer in Compromise is a negotiation between the IRS and an individual who struggles to pay their tax liability in full or will experience financial hardship in doing so. This is also a legitimate method to settle tax delinquencies for a reduced amount. There are certain factors to consider such as income, ability to pay, and asset equity.

You must make the required tax returns and estimated payments plus an application to ensure eligibility. You will also be asked to complete Form 433-A for individuals or Form 433-B for businesses and Form 656 in addition to the required documents.


Penalty Abatement

A huge tax bill that you can’t afford to pay isn’t the only trouble you can run into. You also need to think about interest and penalty charges that are accumulating which you would also need relief from. Penalty abatement is a type of relief particular to taxpayers who experience special situations that hinder their ability to pay taxes. These situations can include hospitalization, natural disasters, a serious illness, or other similar situation that is beyond their control. This is identified as reasonable cause penalty abatement.

The first-time penalty abatement is the most commonly available type of waiver allowed by the IRS. If you have a good history of filing and paying taxes on time and you don’t have a record of penalties, you may be qualified for first-time penalty abatement where the IRS waives the penalty.

Each day that you fail to pay your tax bill, a good amount of interest and fees is added to the unpaid amount. This is why qualifying for penalty abatement is incredibly helpful.


Advantages of Tax Relief Companies

Most Americans agree that dealing with the IRS is an intimidating thought and would be the last thing they want to happen. However, the complicated regulations for filing taxes, the changes every year, and the tax jargon make the process overwhelming for many. Enlisting a tax relief service makes the process simpler and allows it to be understandable for the layman. There are advantages that you can take from having an expert:

  • A tax expert can prevent tax liens and levies by looking into the specifics of your IRS collection case.
  • The IRS uses asset seizure and wage garnishment to collect the majority of the taxes they’re owed. These can be avoided if you are aware of other options. Tax relief firms can help you look for an alternative method to pay back your taxes.
  • Tax professionals understand tax laws and can explain the process in a manner that’s easy to understand.
  • As a tax relief company, we can also serve as a tax representative to negotiate with the IRS on your behalf.
  • In addition to managing your current tax issues, they can help you avoid tax problems from arising in the future.
