Yes, we can help anybody who owes money to the government. We can assist with a payment plan or analyze your situation to see if you qualify for an reduced amount owed.

We will settle the debt directly with the IRS on your behalf. We analyze your situation and offer a compromised settlement to the IRS. We handle the complete negotiation on your behalf. In some cases, we can reduce your debt owed to the IRS to pennies on the dollar.

11. What is an offer in compromise?  
An offer in compromise (OIC) is an alternative agreement between a taxpayer and the IRS to resolve a tax liability. The IRS has the authority to settle, or compromise, federal tax liabilities by accepting less than full payment under certain circumstances as follows:

  • Doubt as to Liability: Doubt exists that the assessed tax is correct.
  • Doubt as to Collectibility: Doubt exists that the taxpayer could ever pay the full amount of tax owed.

12. What Is The Difference Between A “C” Corporation And An “S” Corporation?  
The answer is related to tax matters. It is determined by how the IRS is going to view your situation. As a general rule, an “S” corporation is more convenient as you can legally eliminate double taxation. We need to evaluate if you qualify for this status.

13. What is the difference between INC. and CORP.  
There is no difference. They are the same.

14. I don’t have a social security number yet, bud I did work in the U.S. Can I still file my taxes?  
You do not need to have a social security number in order to file taxes. You are required to file taxes if you have any earned income inside the U.S. You must file taxes regardless of your immigration status. You can be a resident for income tax purposes, which means you must live in the United States more than half of the year and not have a legal status for immigration purposes.

You may be required to apply for an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Item Number). This is a number the IRS assigns you in order for you do file you taxes if you do not have a social security number.

15. I have a visa to work. I came to work in America and I brought my family. We are here legally, but I am the only one who has the social security. Can I include my family on my tax return?  
Yes, this is because they are related to you, they live with you, and depend on you. Since they don’t have a social security number they will apply for the ITIN when you file your personal tax return.

Form W-7 will be prepared for each ITIN applicant, they will be attached it to the tax return, and send it to a specific IRS address.

16. I received a letter from the IRS they are going to audit my income tax return, can you help me?  
Yes, we can represent individual and business taxpayers on audits with any government agency. The process starts with a meeting to ensure we can help you. Then we established an action plan and go to the different meetings with the auditor.

17. How are tax returns selected for an audit?  
There is three ways the IRS selects tax returns for an audit:

1. At random.
2. By industry. Sometimes the IRS looks closer at certain industries, like LLC’s and self-employed type businesses.
3. If your tax return is suspicious in nature. If you tax return has too many red flags, such as too many deductions in regards to the income reported – it is a clear indication your tax return needs a closer look by the IRS.

18. Do you handle electronic filings?  
Yes. We file returns electronically

19. Do you have the program for refund anticipation loan (RAL)?  
Yes. We are authorized to participate in this program. We electronically transmit your return from our office to the bank and the IRS. The benefit of this program is the customer receives their income tax return within 24 hours thru a RAL. There is a fee for this service.
