A Blue Print To Resolution
A Free Consultation is important and be prepared to spend approximately an hour with an experienced tax attorney discussing and evaluating your situation for tax relief options that are available for your IRS tax resolution.
First you will need to retain a tax resolution firm which can be done after your consultation if you feel they are qualified. At that point if you agree, you will be asked to sign a retainer and make some type of payment arrangements to the firm for their services. Once that is done, you will no longer have to deal directly with the IRS. The resolution firm will have filed a Power of Attorney with the IRS and you can politely tell them to contact your attorney.
Now it is time to start your IRS tax resolution. The person assigned to your case should be a highly qualified Enrolled Agent, Tax Attorney or a Certified Public Account. You will then strategically develop a plan to resolve your case. Some resolution firms place a team of experienced technical specialists for support in managing your case.
