Our Services

Most people are not aware that if they owe money to the IRS, they will eventually be subject to enforcement action. The IRS can garnish your wages, levy your bank accounts, issue liens on your house, and seize other assets, without taking you to court. That’s right. Countless people every year lose their entire bank balances because they did not take action in time. So don’t wait and call us today. We will put a tax attorney between you and the IRS and prevent any enforcement action from occurring. We may even be able to reverse actions already taken.

  • IRS Appeals

    If your tax debt situation with the IRS, either through dealing with them yourself or with other representation, has resulted in an outcome you believe is less than fair and equitable, you have the right to appeal the IRS’s decision. The IRS has a special department devoted to this called the IRS Appeals Division. Expert representation before the IRS Appeals Division is critical in order for you to have the best opportunity for a satisfactory resolution in your favor.

  • Innocent Spouse

    Couples filing joint returns are held equally responsible for the tax return and the payment of appropriate taxes. In some cases, however, a spouse can be relieved of all IRS tax, interest, and penalties on a joint return.

    In essence, three types of innocent spouse relief are potentially available for people who believe the tax debt is not their responsibility: innocent spouse relief, separation of liability, and equitable relief. Each has different requirements..

  • Business Payroll Tax Representation

    The IRS is particularly aggressive when it comes to collecting on delinquent payroll taxes (IRS forms 940 and 941) from business owners. Failure to properly pay the IRS for taxes withheld from employees’ wages is considered stealing from the employees and the US Treasury.

    If you have failed to withhold or pay payroll taxes, you can incur huge IRS penalties as well as face potential civil or criminal sanctions. Luckily, tax attorney at TMS have extensive experience dealing with unpaid payroll taxes, and we will negotiate on your behalf with the IRS, ensuring that your business, personal assets, wages and bank accounts remain intact.

  • Appeals of IRS Collections

    Legally, the IRS can use a number of methods to attempt collection of your unpaid taxes. You have the right to appeal to the IRS Office of Appeals when you receive notice or threat of IRS collection actions. These collection actions include:

    • Federal tax lien
    • Seizure and sale of property
    • ntent to levy (wages, retirement accounts, bank accounts, accounts receivable, etc.)
    • Rejection, termination, or proposed termination of an installment agreement

    You also have the right to professional representation to guide you through this scary and complex process, to help ensure that you get the best possible outcome.

  • Offer In Compromise

    If you are unable to pay your tax debt in full, you may qualify to have your debt settled for less than the full amount owed. The tax relief experts at TMS perform this type of negotiation often. We would submit an Offer in Compromise to the IRS, showing that you have exhausted all other payment options or that your tax liability is incorrect.

    An Offer in Compromise is the most effective way to resolve and reduce your tax liability.

  • Penalty Abatement

    IRS penalties and interest can cause a small delinquent tax debt to compound into a seemingly insurmountable amount within a very short period of time. Penalties alone can make up 25% of the amount you owe.

    Our experienced tax attorneys are experts at penalty abatement – from getting the IRS to either completely or partially remove your penalty, to reduce the amount you owe and help you get your tax debt resolved quickly.

  • Wage Garnishment Release

    If you owe the IRS and have ignored repeated letters and warnings, the IRS will likely use one of their most aggressive tax collection methods – wage levy, also known as wage garnishment to collect the amount you owe. This is a legal way for the IRS to collect from you without you paying them directly. Your employer will be contacted and by law, must take a portion of your pay and send it to the IRS. Wage garnishment is not to be taken lightly. TMS can help, stop the garnishments, and negotiate a favorable tax settlement with the IRS.
