Although for many people the April 15th tax deadline often puts tax concerns off for another year, there are millions of others who find themselves with tax obligations they cannot meet. For those who are facing a tax debt with the IRS, Lavelle Law, Ltd will be offering a free workshop on April 29th to review available options. The seminar will take place at the Lavelle Law offices at 501 West Colfax in Palatine and will begin at 7:00 p.m.
"Having an outstanding tax debt with the IRS is not, in and of itself, a problem," said Timothy Hughes, a Partner at the nineteen attorney firm. "It becomes an issue when the taxpayer avoids the situation altogether and does nothing to find a solution. Any taxpayer that is struggling with IRS collections should take advantage of this opportunity to finally resolve their tax debt with the Internal Revenue Service"
The seminar will cover various options that a taxpayer may have in dealing with tax debts, whether they are from the most recent filing year or carry back one or more years.
Hughes has been a part of the Taxation Practice Group at Lavelle Law, Ltd for more than two decades and is well-versed in the many remedies that taxpayers can call on in dealing with the IRS. "The Offer in Compromise is one tactic that can be used to arrive at a means of resolving the debt with the IRS and there are others as well." Hughes will work through examples of the revised Offer in Compromise program and show how it can be used to offer significant relief in many cases.
"What is important is that the taxpayer work with a qualified tax attorney to represent them with the IRS. They should not try and avoid the situation, nor should they pay an outside 'tax service' to address their concerns. Only a tax attorney can represent a taxpayer in the US Tax Court."
