Owing back taxes to the IRS can seem overwhelming, but one client of JK Harris and Company, the nation's largest tax representation company, claims it was 'a fate worse than death.'
Claudia Jones of Eunice, LA, owed the IRS more than $23,000 in back taxes. Her tax problems had been mounting for several years and she did not have the financial ability to pay her back tax debt, so initially, she ignored the problem. When she received an IRS notice stating her wages were about to be levied, she knew she had to act. She saw a JK Harris commercial and decided to call the company.
"JK Harris was a godsend," said Jordan. "The employees were very helpful in answering all my questions. They do what they say on television; they meet with you face to face, not a phone interview like the other companies."
Initially, a Professional Staff Report was created specifically for Ms. Jordan. The report was based on her financial situation, and analyzed what options she had for resolving her tax liability. Her financial situation made her a prime candidate for an Offer in Compromise.
An Offer in Compromise is an agreement between the IRS and the taxpayer that allows the taxpayer's delinquent tax debt to be compromised for less than the amount owed. The offered dollar amount is based on the taxpayers net worth plus their future income potential, in other words, what the taxpayer is actually able to pay.
According to the case specialist who handled Ms. Jordan's case, Ms. Jordan was single, living with relatives and had no means to repay her IRS liability in full without causing her undue hardship. Ms. Jordan was cooperative in sending JK Harris all of the financial documents needed to negotiate her case. Her case specialist was able to expedite all paperwork to the IRS and meet all deadlines on time. The IRS accepted Jordan's offer amount of $1,500, saving her $22,311.38.
"JK Harris saved me from a fate worse than death," said Jordan. "Thank you, JK Harris and Company!"
