DL 2

Innocent Spouse Relief Claim

IRS granted our request

When CM came for her free initial consultation she owed the IRS $362,173 for the years 2015, 2016 and 2017. The amounts due were from Joint Tax returns filed with her ex-husband. In discussing the matter with CM it was discovered that the large balances were caused by her husband. I advised her that the only way to eliminate her tax debt at this time was to file a claim for Innocent Spouse Relief.

Currently Non-Collectible Status Case

CNC status used as protection from IRS

When LL came for his free initial consultation he owed about $6,000 to the IRS for 2 older years. The IRS was threatening to levy his bank account. I came up with a plan to both protect LL from an IRS tax levy and to eliminate the tax debt. The IRS has a program called a Currently Non-Collectible Status (CNC). I called the IRS and negotiated with the IRS to put LL in a CNC status. LL was able to use the CNC status to protect from IRS bank levies and wage garnishments until the tax debt expired.

Offer in Compromise Case

IRS accepted Offer in Compromise as filed

CW & RW are an elderly couple, ages 77 and 70 respectively, living in Livingston County. When they came to me for their free initial consultation they owed the IRS $55,000.00 for the years 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018. I reviewed their income, living expenses and equity in assets. It was determined that they may be eligible for an Offer in Compromise. I prepared and filed the Offer in Compromise with the IRS, offering the IRS $671.00 to settle out the $55,000.00 owed.
