The Process For An IRS Tax Debt Resolution

IRS Tax Debt Resolution

Many people find themselves in tax debt, so if you’re one of them, you’re not alone. There are many steps involved in resolving IRS tax debt. You can begin the process by contacting us for a free consultation!

Here’s what comes next for obtaining tax debt resolution:

Tax Analysis Review

First, the IRS/State is contacted to obtain your account records and transcripts. We confirm the balance owed, collection statute dates, substitute filings and any unfilled tax years. Based on this information we will determine the best course of action for your case.


For your tax account to be resolved you must be in compliance with tax filings and current with your tax withholdings. If there is a Substitute For Return (SFR) filed by the IRS or State or an unfilled tax year we will file said returns to show your true balance.

Tax Negotiation

Hire a tax attorney to fight for you to reach the most advantageous resolution for your account. Our staff of enrolled agents and tax attorneys have over 50 years of experience in negotiating with the IRS and all 50 States. The opposition can be intense and aggressive, that’s why it is very important to find representation for yourself.


Your case manager and tax professional will collect financial information from you to prepare and submit your account to the appropriate revenue agency to resolve your balances. In some cases, you will be required to provide 6-12 months of supporting documents to support your case. The negotiation process could take anywhere from 1-3 months up to a year or more, depending on the complexity of your case and/or the agency.
