It’s scary to receive a letter from the IRS and having them show up on your doorstep is even worse. When the IRS is making demands that are impossible for you to meet it can leave you feeling restless, tossing and turning at night thinking:
“You deserve an advocate who knows the ins and outs of how the IRS operates. A former IRS Revenue Officer, I am now an Enrolled Agent (EA) and a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist helping taxpayers find a solution to tax problems on terms that work for them.” – Justin Costello, founder of Costello Tax Resolution
I understand how complicated the tax system is and how easy it is to make a mistake that can have the IRS making demands you can’t meet.
Truth is, the IRS doesn’t tell you there are options available to resolve your tax problems. I spent the first 15 years of my career as an IRS Revenue Officer, so I know the system inside and out. I left the IRS to start Costello Tax Resolution so I could use my expertise to help people like you find the best possible solution for your situation.
It’s scary thinking about dealing with the IRS on your own. My services keep you free from having to meet or speak with them – I deal with them on your behalf.
The sooner we begin working together, the better your tax resolution options will be.
Your unpaid taxes don’t just go away, they require action if you want to avoid penalties and additional fees. Once I know what we’re up against, I do the work of identifying your best solution. I will then talk to and negotiate with the IRS, so you don’t have to.
One of the most common ways to find some relief from your tax debt is to create a tax payment plan and pay it back in monthly installments, rather than all at once. Payment penalties can still occur and repayments typically have a deadline.
Liens and levies can have a devastating impact on your life. Liens are used to seize assets, whereas levies are used to take your income. If you own it, the IRS has the authority to take it.
An OIC agreement allows you to settle with the IRS or state tax authorities for a fraction of what you owe.
Forgetting to pay or to file your taxes can have significant repercussions. Even if you have legitimate reasons for missing the tax deadline, the IRS may still impose tax penalties until you pay your tax bill in full. Penalty abatement programs exist and allow you to avoid paying fines for not submitting your taxes, not paying them on time or for making an error. You can only get one respite and it has to be for the tax year you’re filing for.
The IRS has the authority to seize virtually any asset you own, including your home, vehicles, retirement accounts, and more.
A wage garnishment occurs when a creditor orders your employer to seize money from your paycheck. Your employer will then be forced to give the withheld portion of your salary to whom you owe the money.
If the IRS suspects that you are neglecting to pay payroll taxes, you are at risk of steep fines, interest rates, and even criminal charges. Unpaid payroll taxes could result in the loss of your business and your freedom.
