Back Taxes.png

FAILURE TO FILE

BACK TAXES

Life happens -- If you’ve missed 1 year’s tax return (or 10 years), we’ll help you get current and compliant with the IRS and/or state tax authorities.

We’ll explore ways to minimize your taxes owned and get any possible penalties reduced.

Assessed Penalties.png

ASSESSED

PENALTIES

A letter from the IRS is enough to ruin the best of days, but not when you

work with us. If you’ve received a letter from the IRS for penalties due to a late filed return, or a late payment, we can assist you by assessing the possibility

of reduction or elimination of those penalties.

Tax Balances.png

TAX BALANCES

DUE

So you’ve filed your tax return,

and you have a remaining tax liability.

It happens. If you find that you have a balance that is larger than you can afford to pay all at once, or at all,

you have options. Let us help you get back in compliance with a custom solution, ranging from affordable payments to settling with the IRS

for pennies on the dollar. 

Wage Garnishments.png

WAGE GARNISHMENT
(OR THE THREAT OF IT)

The IRS does have the authority

to garnish your pay with no consideration as to how you’ll keep up with your bills with what’s left over.

If you’ve received a notice from the IRS regarding a wage levy, or they’ve already implemented one, let’s talk.

Tax Lien.png

TAX LIENS

& LEVIES

If you owe a substantial amount of back taxes to the IRS, you could face a tax lien or levy if the taxes remain unpaid. Once a lien or levy is placed on your bank account or other assets, getting rid of it can be difficult. If you are facing a lien or levy, or need one resolved, we can help.

IRS Audit

IRS

TAX AUDITS

Red flag or random, the IRS has 3 years from the due date of a tax return to assess any additional taxes that may be owed by issuing an Audit Letter.

This is one of the most nerve-wrecking notices to receive, but you do not

have to face it alone.

ASE Group can represent you.

Offer in Compromise.png

OFFER-IN-COMPROMISE

 Most advertised solution,

and yet the least available for use.

An Offer-in-Compromise (OIC) allows a taxpayer to settle their debt for less than what’s actually owed (commonly known as the ‘Fresh Start Initiative’.)

Installment Agreements.png

INSTALLMENT AGREEMENT

In layman’s terms, this is a payment plan. Instead of paying a lump sum,

you can pay your tax debt in monthly installments. But instead of the standard agreement that works for the IRS, we’ll get you into an agreement that you can afford.

Partial Payment

PARTIAL-PAY  AGREEMENT

If full payment of the total outstanding tax debt cannot be achieved by the Collection Statute Expiration Date, and you have some ability to pay, this is a great option. You could pay less than you owe in an affordable monthly payment, and still obtain good standing with the IRS.

Audit.png

AUDIT REPRESENTATION

Rule #1 of an audit -- never go at it alone. ASE Group will represent you in your IRS Audit case and save you time, and more importantly, help avoid unnecessary headaches! Survive an audit, and minimize your stress, tax liability and penalties by engaging ASE Group to represent you.

Not Collectible

CURRENTLY NOT COLLECTIBLE

Perhaps you owe a balance,

and it can’t be eliminated but you also can’t afford to make payments.

ASE Group can assist you in requesting ‘Currently Not Collectible’ status to

stop the threatening letters and pause the payments (Note: Interest continues to accrue, but may not ever become payable.)

Penalty Abandonment

PENALTY

ABATEMENT

Penalties are assessed for late filings and late payments, and they can accumulate quickly. But what the IRS won’t tell you is that there are opportunities to reduce or eliminate penalties. ASE Group regularly assists clients with this process, and we can help you too.

Innocent Spouse

INNOCENT

SPOUSE

If your spouse (or former spouse) has improperly reported items on your tax return, and you are not liable for the tax, interest and penalties, ASE Group can help you assess joint vs individual responsibility, and seek relief from the individual income or self-employment tax that aren’t your responsibility.

Injured Spouse

INJURED

SPOUSE

If you’ve lost some or all of your tax refund due to debt that your spouse’s solely-owed debt (i.e. past-due federal tax, state income tax, child or spousal support, or student loans), ASE Group can help you recover your portion of the refund while still reaping the benefit of filing jointly.

Appeal

LIENS/

LEVIES

Oftentimes, with a lien or levy, your matter may require a reply to a notice in less than 30 days. Resolution can involve an appeal request, resolution of the tax liability, and/or a lien withdrawal. Wherever you are in the process,

ASE Group can help.

The Process

STEP 1

FREE CONSULTATION

Schedule your free + confidential consultation call.

Consultations give us an opportunity to learn more about one another. While we’re assessing your needs, you should be assessing if we’re the right fit to bring resolution to your tax matters, once and for all.

STEP 2

INVESTIGATION

This phase allows us to gather all necessary information from the IRS

(and state, if applicable), to analyze the information and provide you with the best possible outcomes for permanent resolution of your tax matter. You can opt to stop at this phase, or continue to Step 3.

STEP 3

RESOLUTION + COMPLIANCE

This is the phase you’ve likely been waiting for. This phase includes completing any tax returns required to get you into good standing with the IRS and/or state (if applicable), and then moving forward with the best resolution option for you and your tax matter. We’ll do all the heavy lifting.

FAQs

1)     What does “Back Tax Relief” mean?

Back Tax Relief generally starts with compliance -- we’ll get you caught up with the prior year tax returns for the years in which you had a filing obligation. It could also include penalty abatement, installment agreement setup, Currently Not Collectible status, Offers in Compromise, Injured or Innocent Spouse Relief, Tax Lien assistance, and so much more. The benefit of working with ASE Group is that you don’t have to know which of these solutions you’ll qualify for -- we’ll assess them all on your behalf and help you determine the best strategy for your needs. 

2)     How much will this cost me?

The cost depends on the strategy that is determined to be your optimal tax relief solution. As often as possible, we charge a flat fee versus an hourly rate. The best way to stay within the quoted flat fee is to follow instructions provided, reply with requested documents in a timely manner, and continue to comply with tax laws.
 

3)     How long does the IRS have to collect my tax debt?

The Internal Revenue Code allows the IRS to collect on a delinquent debt for ten years from the date a return is due or the date it is actually filed, whichever is later ( IRS Statute of Limitations (SOL) on collections). 
 

4)     How do I stay in good standing after my tax issue is resolved?

Remain in compliance by filing your tax returns on time! Now’s the time to develop a close relationship with your tax professional to ensure you are having regular check-ins to avoid any big issues. If you have encountered tax liabilities due to under-withholding, be sure to work with your tax professional to review your withholdings and/or to determine adequate estimated tax payment amounts. Tax problems are taxing in more ways than one -- they are stressful and often costly to fix. Save your sense and your cents by staying in compliance once you are all caught up and have resolved your major tax matter(s).
 

5)     How does ASE Group differ from the commercials I see on TV and hear on the radio

We love this question because it’s not even a comparison. The companies that advertise on TV and radio are sales companies. We are credentialed tax professionals. When you contact them, please know they’ve casted a wide net so you are a number. You’ll speak with their sales team, and their goal is to qualify you for their most costly service -- an Offer-In-Compromise. So few people are actually eligible for an Offer-In-Compromise, but so many people would pay so much in hopes of reducing a tax debt to zero), and they prey on your desperation. If they can’t get you into a service that equals big fees for them, they aren’t interested in helping you. At ASE Group, you’re a person, with a name and a real problem that needs a real solution. We’re looking to help you solve that problem, and more importantly, avoid any problems like it in the future. We’ll evaluate all of your options (not just the ones that warrant large fees), and we’ll get you into the best possible solution for your needs.
