Helping You Manage Your Back Taxes

Back or unpaid taxes are taxes owed from a previous tax year. There are many reasons individuals and businesses may find themselves owing back taxes, including:

  • Underreporting income on a previous tax return
  • Overstating deductions or expenses on a previous tax return
  • An audit that resulted in a tax deficiency
  • Filing previous years' returns

Tax debt can quickly grow. The IRS can assess penalties for underpayment or failure to file. Interest may also continuously accrue from the original time the tax was due until the liability is paid in full. Penalties and accruing interest can turn what may have begun as a modest unpaid tax amount into an overwhelming debt, subjecting you to collection actions.

Some common IRS collection techniques may include:

There Are Serious Risks If You Fail To File

Even if you are unable to pay all of the taxes that you owe, it is critical that you file anyway. Failing to file a tax return may subject you to collection actions by the IRS, late filing penalties — which can be up to 25 percent of your taxes owed — and criminal charges for tax evasion.

Time Is Of The Essence. Seek Quality Legal Assistance Now.

At Bucci Law Offices, we will take proactive steps to help you avoid or respond to a collection action. In some circumstances, we may be able to contest the amount the IRS says you owe through an appeal. Through other options — such as offers in compromise (OIC) or installment agreements — we can help reduce the amount of interest that accrues and prevent tax liens, account seizures or wage garnishments.
