That many people means somebody is likely looking online every second for some kind of help.
Charleston, SC (Vocus) July 9, 2009
"There are over 20 million American households with a back-tax problem," Chris Cooper, former Executive Vice-president of a leading tax resolution company stated emphatically. "That many people means somebody is likely looking online every second for some kind of help."
Straight Talk About Back Taxes is Cooper's effort to lend a hand.
"I spent six years on the front line and in the executive office of a very large company, watching thousands of cases go through the system," he continued. "There were people and families of all kinds, in trouble with the IRS for mostly very understandable reasons."
"Some families had spent their life savings on extended illness, others lost their jobs and were without income, others had gone through death, divorce, business failures, even homes that burned down. It all added up to putting tax payments aside, at least for a little while."
"The trouble is," Cooper went on, "that 'little while' usually turns into much, much longer and sooner or later, the IRS is going to knock on your door to collect. And, they may not be very happy about having to come after you."
Cooper said. "But, I learned a lot about what to do and not to do when dealing with the IRS; when you need professional help and when you can work things out on your own."
"I want to pass along what I've seen and learned so others can find their way out of the problem and back into full compliance as quickly and effectively as possible," he concluded.
The blog is written in a comfortable, conversational style that makes dealing with IRS personnel and the challenges of working through a tax problem easier to put into perspective.
