They began to take money out of my social security checks even though I could not afford it. Fortunately, Roni's law firm gave me expert counsel and good advice.
North Highlands, CA (PRWEB) December 25, 2008
In November of 2008, The Tax Lady Roni Deutch and her law firm negotiated with the IRS to end collections against a group of taxpayers who owed the IRS over $1.3 million in unpaid back taxes.
"It seems like every month we hear horror stories about how many jobs are being lost in this country," claims The Tax Lady Roni Deutch. "Millions of families are having trouble meeting basic living expenses, let alone trying to pay down a huge tax debt. Fortunately, the IRS has programs designed to help taxpayers settle their debts. One of which is known as placement on CNC status, which essentially ends IRS collection activities against a client."
In November of 2008, Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation relieved the stress of collection activity for a group a clients owing the IRS $1,3 million in aggregate through placement on Currently Not Collectible (CNC) status. The individual clients owed on average approximately $46,000 each.
Currently Not Collectible status is a designation the IRS uses to indicate that it cannot collect from a particular taxpayer at that time. To qualify for the designation, a taxpayer must have filed all necessary tax returns and must not have the ability to pay their tax liability in full or through a monthly payment. To determine whether a taxpayer can pay in full or through monthly payments, the IRS reviews the taxpayer's monthly income and expenses, as well as the value of his or her assets. Typically, the IRS places a taxpayer's collection account into Currently Not Collectible status only after determining that the taxpayer cannot pay his or her back tax liability in full or does not qualify for a monthly payment plan because his or her income is exceeded by his or her expenses.
Mr. Lewis of Caseyville, IL knows what a struggle it can be trying to get placed on CNC status. He retained Roni Deutch, A Professional Tax Corporation to negotiate an IRS settlement after they began taking funds from his social security checks.
"I was deep in debt, and the IRS didn't have any mercy," claims Mr. Lewis. "They began to take money out of my social security checks even though I could not afford it. Fortunately, Roni's law firm gave me expert counsel and good advice."
"Mr. Lewis' case had many of the common issues that arise during representation and is an excellent example of how these issues can be resolved when the client is as responsive and patient as Mr. Lewis," notes attorney Sean Chi. "It is not entirely uncommon for a client, once they have provided all their documentation, to have underestimated the amount of income they had when they first contacted us. After receiving all of Mr. Lewis' documentation, his income was higher than he first reported to us. He was then saddled with a levy on his social security income. However, he was responsive to the letter we sent to him regarding his financial status and we were able to update his expenses to account for his higher income."
"As a result, we were able to get him placed on Currently Not Collectible status and have his wage garnishment lifted while we continued to work towards filing his Offer in Compromise (OIC)," continued Chi. "Mr. Lewis continued to be responsive during the OIC process, providing answers and documentation as requested. When issues arose, he was able to provide accurate information and documentation to support our position. Because of his cooperation, we were able to get his offer approved. Mr. Lewis was a pleasure to have as a client."
