Tax Debt Help

Tax debt help

You're going to need tax debt help if you're one of the many taxpayers trying to contend with back taxes and tax debts amounting to more than $10,000. While there are people who believe that hiring a professional to help you resolve your issues with the IRS is impractical especially if you're already financially broke, there is actually a great deal of wisdom in obtaining tax debt help. Of course, this is depending on your choice of professional assistance.

Who can help?

There are only three types of professionals eligible to provide proper tax debt help: tax attorneys, certified public accountants and enrolled agents. These are people who are allowed to negotiate terms with the IRS for their clients. Tax experts are, as the term implies, well versed with the intricacies of tax laws. They are always updated with the latest statutes on tax debts and negotiations so they are the best people to provide you with tax debt help.

It is important to note, however, that only enrolled agents are capable of practicing in all states as they are federally licensed by the US Treasury. CPAs and lawyers can only offer assistance in the state where they are licensed. If you're looking to hire a professional for tax debt help, you will have to hire one based in your locale if you want to be assisted by a lawyer.

Minimizing costs

Of course, getting professional tax debt help will cost paying for professional help, but there ways to cut down costs. First, you need to make sure that you're working with an established and seasoned tax pro. You want someone who will focus on strategies and negotiating with the IRS for the best tax debt settlement according to your financial situation. You are hiring a professional mostly for his advice and his ability to effectively communicate with the Internal Revenue Service.

Ask your tax pro about the paperwork and forms that you need to accomplish and see if you can do that on your own to minimize the total service fee. Many enrolled agents and tax professionals charge for tax debt help services by the hour or on a flat fee basis, so try accomplishing the tasks that you can do on your own would be less costly.


It also pays to research on your options for tax debt help and negotiation before you talk to a tax pro. This is so he doesn't have to give you a lengthy lecture on what every other term in the tax legislation means and you can both get down to the business of arranging your records and presenting a proper case to the IRS.

There are several different strategies that you can implement to get out of tax debt. Make sure to work with a tax pro who will analyze your current situation with you. A good enrolled agent will come up with a negotiation strategy based on the specific situation of his client. There are other means of clearing your tax debt other than offer in compromise. Be wary of tax pros who present only this as the best course of action because it doesn't always work with every situation.

Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him! Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation! Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!

I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends. Nancy & Sal V.
