Previous posts on this Texas blog have mentioned time and again that there are ways to meet one’s tax obligations to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and even end up paying less than what one owed originally. Options, such as offers in compromise and currently not collectible status, have been discussed as collection alternatives in IRS law. Others are also available, depending on the facts and circumstances of one’s situation.
Tax law is confusing, and the repercussions of misunderstanding or misapplying the laws can be devastating for individuals and businesses. They can hit be with penalties and late fees for taxes they either did not even know they had to pay or accrued because of paperwork mistakes. Notices from the IRS can be overwhelming and repetitive. Though, getting in touch with the IRS to understand or question the taxes can be next to possible.
