These numbers should be a wake-up call for taxpayers, but unfortunately most people with IRS problems don't know what to do or are paralyzed by fear
Encino, CA (Vocus) March 25, 2010
Fiscal year 2009 saw 1.425 million examinations of individual tax returns - the most seen all decade. The IRS also filed more than 3 million bank levies and nearly 1 million tax liens - also the most seen all decade.
According to tax relief expert Michael Rozbruch, individuals and businesses - both big and small - can be financially crippled if they fail to meet their tax obligations. Congress has sent another $12.2 billion to the IRS this year resulting in a record $5.5 billion budget and hundreds of new IRS agents who have been hired to crack down on offshore tax dodgers and under-reported income.
“The trend towards tougher enforcement against tax avoidance means that more Americans than ever will need to know their options for income tax relief and IRS tax help to prevent or resolve tax audits,” said Rozbruch, founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, Co., a company that provides affordable solutions to people seeking income tax relief. “With tax audits on the rise, there are plenty of meaningful things that taxpayers can do to get themselves a leg up on their back taxes and level the playing field to avoid severe IRS penalties and financially debilitating levies on their wages and bank accounts.”
In 2009, the IRS collected $48.9 billion - the third-most collected all decade. Additionally, the IRS had 21,059 revenue officers and special agents on the streets in 2009 - 339 more than were employed in 2008.
“These numbers should be a wake-up call for taxpayers, but unfortunately most people with IRS problems don’t know what to do or are paralyzed by fear,” Rozbruch said. “Job number one for us is to bring their tax problems off their dining room tables and into our office where we take over all communication with the IRS and work tirelessly to defend their rights and permanently resolve their tax troubles.”
