Why Taxpayers Should Never Attempt to Negotiate With The IRS Without Representation

Having IRS tax debt can be an overwhelmingly stressful situation. The IRS has incredibly profound priveleges and powers in terms of their collection processes. In fact, the IRS is the only entity in the country that has the legal right to seize personal assets without a court order. Given this sweeping degree of collection leverage, it is important to be extremely well prepared when dealing with the IRS. Keep in mind, the IRS's job is to collect tax dollars by any means legally necessary. They are NOT obligated to educate the taxpayer on how to negotiate a settlement on the owed tax liability. In other words, if a taxpayer chooses to represent him/herself before the IRS, the IRS is going to operate under the assumption that the taxpayer understands the rules, protocols, codes, guidelines and procedures as intimately as the IRS understands them. Of course this places the taxpayer at an instant disadvantage.


Having representation in the form of a reputable tax resolution firm basically "levels the playing field". A reputable tax resolution firm generally employs a suite of representatives who specialize in IRS negotiations and are skilled at representing taxpayers before the monstrosity of the Federal Government. There are many "rules" by which the IRS must comply, however, unless a taxpayer intimately understands those rules and procedures, then the IRS is effectively given free reign to collect the stated tax liability without being held accountable to their own rules. This of course can and most likely will result in the taxpayer being forced into a repayment plan that creates financial hardships and threatens the soundness of the taxpayers personal financial circumstances. 


Acquiring the assistance of a qualified and reputable tax resolution firm not only levels the playing field and minimizes the possibility of the taxpayer being taken advantage of, but it also increases the likelihood of the taxpayer obtaining the most favorable outcome regarding the outstanding tax debt. Although fees are charged for these services, the benefit usually greatly out weighs the costs. Acquiring skilled and experienced representation will allow for several settlement options to be considered such as penalty abatements, offer in compromises, partial payment plans and possibly even complete tax debt forgiveness.


Before trying to tackle a tax problem on your own, research reputable tax resolution firms and go into battle prepared with a firm fighting for you with "tools" as sharp as those posessed by the IRS.
