She owed a massive 7.5 million, she hadn’t filed her returns in years, and the threats from the IRS revenue agents were getting more and more aggressive, with possible criminal prosecution. The IRS had assessed the taxpayer over $7,507,452 M in tax liability. StopIRSDebt.com completed years 1999-2006 US and State of MI individual income tax returns to bring the taxpayer’s account into compliance with the IRS.
At the same time, we released a wage garnishment and placed the taxpayer on an affordable installment agreement to pay off the balance. All told, the tax debt was mitigated all the way down to $60,000. That’s less than 1% of the total tax debt owed! But not everyone will float out of harm’s way. If you owe the IRS back taxes, remember to accurately file your returns.
He owed quite a bit of money to the IRS, and figured he would call them and ask for a payment plan. What he didn’t bargain for was that, along with the request, he would have to remit an entire financial disclosure form detailing his income and assets. The result was a suffocating payment plan that barely left him anything after his expenses.
After seeing our commercial, David decided that maybe he made a poor choice representing himself before the IRS and contacted our firm with lots and lots of questions. This time, David made the right phone call. StopIRSDebt.com worked with the IRS Appeals division to lower the client’s $3,500 monthly payment plan down to $1,467 per month, thus reducing the client’s liability in half.
His tax bill was reduced from $169,000 to $0. How is that even possible!? The first thing StopIRSDebt.com did was to file his 2004-2009 US individual income tax returns. This had quite an impact, as it reduced the initial balances owed from $169,000 all the way down to $99,000.
We then negotiated Currently non Collectible status on the remaining $99,000 balance, which brought the amount owed to $0. All told, Ronald L. didn’t pay anything on his tax bill. Not everyone will qualify to completely walk away from their tax debt, but for those of you who’ve recently opened a threatening piece of mail from the IRS, there can be quite a bright light at the end of the tunnel for those who get help.
Did he really save that much!? Yes, he really did. And then some. StopIRSDebt.com immediately filed 10 years of federal and state tax returns for the taxpayer, which not only reduced the amount owed substantially as we itemized each deduction for each year offsetting the reported income, it also got us in good standing with the revenue officer and collections against Arthur were frozen.
We then negotiated a partial pay Installment Agreement on the remaining balance in the amount of $580 per month. The taxpayer will only pay back the IRS $69,600 for a period of 10 years that is left in the statute. All told, Arthur will save about $383,916 PLUS future penalties and interest

Prices will vary considerably depending on the scope of work needed to be done and complexity to your general liability issue. We have been in business for over seventeen years, and find that it benefits the consumer to pay a fair fee for a fair service. There are simply no cutting corners. In many cases we offer interest free financing of our fee, allowing you to make payments over time. A general range for our services is as follows: simple tax returns can cost a few hundred dollars each, simple tax resolution cases can be between fifteen hundred and twenty five hundred each, and more complex cases can cost in the thousands. As fees vary based on work, such as returns needing to be filed and garnishments needing to be lifted, please contact one of our tax associates for a free evaluation of your options and to better price your tax issues.
For most cases involving a tax liability, we begin representation by having you sign and remit to us several IRS forms. The first is an 8821, which allows us to order your master tax file and see how much is owed and for what years. The second form is a 2848 which allows us to speak directly to the IRS on your behalf so that we can request a hold against collection action and negotiate directly with your assigned revenue officer. We then send you a financial questionnaire which must be filled in and sent back to us. At that point, there will be some back and forth between you and our firm as we work to prepare your resolution matter and/or negotiate directly with an assigned revenue officer. Depending on the resolution matter, cases will vary moving forward, but these are the basic steps to getting represented.
StopIRSDebt.com is a tax resolution firm, not a law firm. Our sole area of focus is on mediating and resolving difficult tax liability matters before the IRS and State taxing authorities. We are a team of dedicated tax professionals with one singular goal in mind: to get you the best tax relief results possible. That means rolling up our sleeves and tackling wage garnishments, bank levies, un-filed tax returns, settlements and calming aggressive revenue officers. Our staff is comprised of tax preparers, attorneys, and enrolled agents. Note: Due to normal staffing variances, we may or may not have all forms of representation available at all times during the year.
Yes, but ask questions. Tax mediation and collection work is a niche service, and is one the requires years of experience and knowledge. While your local CPA or Attorney may have a general understanding of your liability issue, the difference between our specialties is similar to hiring a general physician to perform open heart surgery; education and experience are dramatically different.
Liability issues is all our firm does, and we have become an expert in the field, consulting both individual taxpayers and corporations across the nation for the past fifteen years. As our volume of cases is so high, we are able to offer our services at affordable rates relative to some attorneys or CPA’s who charge by the hour with limited knowledge of tax law.
Yes! Our hard working team includes attorneys, seasoned in all aspects of IRS collections and settlement proceedings. Some tax providers claim to use attorneys when they really don’t. You can verify this by requesting them to send you a 2848 power of attorney form. On this form, you will be able to see who is representing you. If the representative is not an attorney, you do not have an attorney representing you. It’s as simple as that. Besides attorneys, we also have Enrolled Agents on staff. It is our belief that different educational backgrounds bring a unique perspective to each case, and help to better service the many different areas of tax resolution for our clients. What is a ‘Tax Relief Attorney’? It’s a general term used to describe an attorney with experience in tax relief matters, such as negotiating an IRS installment agreement or preparing settlements, and does not imply that the attorney has a specialized tax law degree. Note: Due to normal staffing variances, we may or may not have both forms of representation available at all times during the year.
If you have a tax debt, and the IRS or state collection agencies are in the process of collecting, both individuals and businesses can qualify for certain tax relief measures. These could be a reprieve against collections wherein all notices and threats of asset seizure are suspended, an agreement to waive accrued penalties on the initial tax liability, or in certain cases a suspension of collection altogether and a mediation of the tax liability. As qualifications for these measures vary from case to case, understanding your options and getting current with an accurate road-map are important considerations our associates will sit with you and go over in depth.
Many taxpayers will accumulate tax debt at an alarming rate when their returns are not filed because the IRS submits the return for them on their behalf, commonly referred to as an SFR (Substitute for Return). This is the worst form of taxation as it allows for zero deductions and maximizes the IRS’s revenue. We assist many clients who haven’t filed their tax returns in years, and in many cases, we can reduce the liability that has accrued, bring the taxpayer legally current, and maintain their returns with our year-over-year tax planning and preparation service.
For the most part, we are generally able to stop most forms of collections against our clients quickly. When you decide to take advantage of our services, we will assume tax power of attorney (IRS form 2848, which you can review on our forms page) which allows us to do several very important things for you. First, it gives us authority to speak to the IRS on your behalf, letting us contact the IRS and request either a 30, 60, or 90 day hold on collections, and when appropriate, we can even place an account into what’s called CNC – Currently Non Collectible, wherein the IRS will cease collection action indefinitely. The second thing the 2848 allows us to do is get your mail and notices, which keeps us current with your case and directs correspondence through our office instead of your mailbox. From here, we will work with you to tailor a program or relief option best suited to your needs.
