There are a number of collection defense tactics available which can be successfully utilized when you owe money to the IRS or the state authorities. These collection defense tactics include
- Negotiating an Installment Agreement
- Submitting an Offer in Compromise
- Discharging your taxes in a Bankruptcy
- Waiting for the Collection Statute to Expire
- Request Abatement of Penalties
- Request Audit Reconsideration
- Filing a Collection Due Process Appeal
Each defense tactic identified above needs to be custom tailored for each unique tax situation. Unlike "mill operations" and other firms lack experience Mr. Leonard does not implement a "one size fits all" solution to your unique tax matter. Sometimes the defense tactics are used in combination; sometimes certain tax filings must be made before one takes action. In any case your tax problem needs to be analyzed and a customized tax solution needs to be prepared. Implementing the wrong action plan will not resolve your tax problems favorably.
