IRS Tax Debt Relief in Nebraska
Have financial difficulties prevented you from paying your taxes? Did a tax audit lead to a big tax bill? Millions of Americans owe delinquent taxes. If you owe money to the Internal Revenue Service or Nebraska Department of Revenue, a Nebraska tax lawyer can help you find a way to pay down your tax debt and may even be able to get your bill reduced or eliminated entirely.
There are several reasons to consider hiring a Nebraska tax attorney to help deal with your tax debt.
- Your lawyer can deal directly with the IRS and Nebraska Department of Revenue, saving you the headaches and hassles of trying to sort out your tax problems.
- Your attorney can also review your finances and your past tax returns to ensure your tax bill is accurate or to get it corrected if you've been overcharged.
- Your Nebraska tax debt attorney can explain your legal tax relief options and describe the advantages and disadvantages of each one. Then your lawyer can help you select the best tax debt solution for your particular situation.
Federal & Nebraska Tax Collection Efforts
Instead of working with a Nebraska tax debt lawyer, some taxpayers will decide to ignore the government in hopes that they will go away. That's unlikely to happen. If you try to run from your delinquent taxes, you can expect the following to happen.
If you haven't already received one, the government will send you a tax bill that lists the actual or estimated amount you owe, as well as tax penalties in the form of interest charges and fines. Ignore that and the government will place a tax lien on your home, car and other assets of value. The lien prevents you from selling the property and also gets reported to the credit bureaus. Finally, the government will seize your assets—your home, auto, paycheck and more—and sell them, putting the money raised toward your tax bill. This is known as a tax levy.
Legally the government has 10 years in which to collect unpaid taxes. If you try to dodge payment, you should know that the government will spend the next 10 years trying to get paid.
