If you’re like most, you do not like paying taxes? The old quote from Benjamin Franklin, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” What is more unpleasant than having to pay taxes? Owing back taxes to the IRS. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) can be intimidating to interact with, however, the IRS unexpectedly has a decent reputation among consumer protection attorneys and members of the public who must deal with them. Houston taxpayers who have dealt directly with the IRS to pay back taxes, late taxes, or clear up mistakes, have, for the most part, reported their interactions with IRS employees was respectful and not very aggressive. The major negative was their persistence and drive to collect. This is in stark contrast to most private debt collectors. If you have a tax situation, the last thing you need is to deal with is harassment and disrespect from a private collection firm. Why is this an issue? The IRS has reactivated the program of hiring private collection agencies to collect on back taxes. The program was halted for a time, but recently agents were not able to address back tax issues quickly enough and the program was reinstated.
The controversial action will make it hard to discern between hired collectors and scammers. Scammers tend to be highly aggressive, pushy and rude. IRS agents and staff are pleasant and never condescending. Any taxpayer subject to collection activities are to receive a letter in the mail prior to any call to help to identify the collector. If you have received a notification letter, received annoying phone calls, or received the standard IRS tax issue letter(s), then contact Tax Relief Systems, LLC.

The IRS has many reasons to contact you, in Houston, and there are an equal or more number of IRS tax relief programs available. First, which is the most common problem, the ability to pay the full amount the IRS states as owed is not reasonable. The option for this situation is most likely an Installment Agreement or some other form of IRS payment plan. This option allows the opportunity to pay your tax debt over months or maybe years. Another viable option is to seek Currently Not Collectible status. This option works if you are unable to make any payment toward your tax debt, and it prevents IRS collection action for a certain period. Sometime this course leads to prevention indefinitely, maybe leading to IRS forgiveness of debt. A third option, for IRS tax relief, is a settlement.
