If you don't have enough money to pay the IRS this year, send in a $10 check with your tax returns on April 15th
Encino, CA (Vocus) April 13, 2010
With just days until federal and state taxes are due, taxpayers who cannot afford to pay their 2009 taxes need to know that they still have IRS tax relief options they can utilize in order to avoid severe IRS penalties and the long-term consequences of unfiled tax returns.
“If you don’t have enough money to pay the IRS this year, send in a $10 check with your tax returns on April 15th,” said Rozbruch, CEO and founder of Tax Resolution Services, Co., a company that provides affordable tax help to people with IRS problems. “This makes it possible for you to file on time, which reduces IRS penalties and demonstrates good faith to pay. Then you can go work with a specialized tax resolution expert to help you negotiate a discounted tax settlement if you qualify.”
Furthermore, Americans who are opting to not file tax returns because they don’t have the funds to pay the taxes owed need to know that the IRS will often file a substitute for return on their behalf.
“If you don’t file your taxes, the IRS may file them for you,” Rozbruch said. “And keep in mind that the IRS prepares these substitute for returns in the best interest of the government, which more often than not results in the overstatement of what taxpayers owe in back taxes and IRS penalties.”
So it’s important that Americans file their 2009 tax returns, as well as any prior delinquent tax returns, as soon as possible so they can have the chance to state what they truly owe, which will ultimately save them money and help them avoid significant long-term financial repercussions. And for taxpayers with IRS back taxes who cannot afford to pay their tax bills this year, it is advisable to seek tax help from an expert IRS tax attorney or Certified Tax Resolution Specialist to explore potential tax relief options.
