Most Americans do their own taxes and, consequently, they make a lot of mistakes. Some don’t bother to file or let the filing date pass. Eventually, a mistake or failure to file will result in a notice from the IRS or the Missouri Department of Revenue, and you may be confused about what to do. Don’t let fear keep you from resolving your problem.
Did You Get an IRS Notice?
If you received a notice from the IRS, you should be concerned, but don’t go into panic mode until you read the notice thoroughly. If you have confusion about a notice, consult with a tax professional and get their advice if it’s a complicated matter or involves potential criminal charges.
Sometimes a tax notice is a minor issue that can be corrected quickly through a phone call or a correction on a tax form. When the matter is serious, you need to call the IRS and get some clarification and instructions on what to do next. Then you should get legal advice.
USAttorneys recommends you hire a tax attorney if you receive an IRS notice for the following:
Failure to file
Seizure of property
Issues with charitable contributions
What Happens if I Owe Taxes?
When you owe back taxes, you need to act and think about how you can pay your back taxes. A tax attorney may be able to negotiate a payment plan and have your failure to file and late penalties reduced. With legal assistance, you may be able to avoid a lot of headaches and high tax payments.
If you are facing tax evasion charges, you will be required to pay back taxes and could be sent to a federal prison. You need a solid defense for tax evasion or tax fraud charges if you want to avoid a prison sentence and keep from losing everything you have.
