Internal Revenue Service Audits
Our tax attorneys in Kansas City represent taxpayers during audits. In these situations, we take over the case with a power-of-attorney appointment and then meeting with the Compliance Officer. Our job includes reviewing and assembling the government requested documents, making calculations supporting the taxpayers’ position, and researching tax law where appropriate. When disputes are not resolved at the audit level, we represent our clients in the United States Tax Court.
Offers to Settle for Less than the Amount Owed
Our firm negotiates with the Internal Revenue Service to reduce your tax debt. This involves calculating your ability to pay using federal guidelines. Neither the IRS nor the states have a set minimum percentage of what you need to pay to settle back tax. Our success has been generally between 5.0 and 26.0 percent. Many times an affordable payment plan is the best way forward.
For low-income families, we can get you into what the IRS calls uncollectable status.
Use Bankruptcy to Lower or Completely Eliminate Your Tax Debt
Bankruptcy law allows for forgiveness of some taxes. The relief available is based upon when the tax return was filed and when the tax return was due. There are situations where all of your back taxes can be discharged in bankruptcy. Call 913-642-2240 for an appointment with Mr. Wiesner to discuss delinquent taxes.
