Don’t face the IRS alone!

Have a tax professional who is familiar with the IRS system work as your advocate!

Due to the continuous changes in tax legislation for reporting individual and business tax returns, and the rise in Cryptocurrency, a layer of complexities have overburdened the processing of tax returns. The benefits of the recent American Recovery Act are meant to provide relief, however, many taxpayers have become targets of audits, continue to experience delayed refunds, receive refund adjustment letters, collection notices, even threats of a lien or levy on your property and wages. A call to the IRS and you find it nearly impossible to speak with someone.

We know the frustration and confusion this has brought to you, the American taxpayer. During the pandemic the IRS had paused its collection efforts. Unfortunately, it appears the sleeping giant has awakened; the current administration pledges $80 billion towards IRS enforcement activities over the next 10 years.

If you are one of the millions of taxpayers who are receiving IRS and/or state collection letters, notices of levy, and garnishment of your wages, you are not alone. You have rights as a taxpayer. Within the Taxpayer Bill of Rights, it is clearly stated that you have the right to retain representation in your dealings with the IRS.

Who do you turn to?

As one of 3 tax professionals, Enrolled Agents (Circular 230 practitioners) are federally authorized tax practitioners empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for tax issues including audits, collections, and appeals. The Enrolled Agent has earned the highest awarded credential by the IRS.

Our staff is made up of Enrolled Agents and our focus is to take the lead in resolving your tax issues with the IRS, to use the strategies our experience has taught us and walk alongside you to gain the best outcome within the legal limits of tax law.

In your search for a company who can represent you be wary of misleading claims that can exaggerate chances to settle tax debts for “pennies on the dollar.” Unscrupulous companies will oversell and overpromise results so they can collect a hefty fee from taxpayers already struggling with debt.

As a result of an initial consultation with us, we will have insight to know if you qualify and what our strategy will be to protect you.

What to know when you have received an IRS letter or notice.

Timely response is critical!

From the moment you have tax due, the clock is ticking. Penalties and interest will begin to accrue and do not stop until the IRS has received full payment. Have you received one of these letters?

  • IRS Notice of Deficiency: CP3219A Notice, you will have 90 days to respond to this letter
  • Reminder Notice: CP501, pay within 21 days to avoid a lien
  • Second Request Notice: CP503, 10 days to reply and penalties have been applied
  • Notice of Intent to Levy: LT11, Informs you of a 30 day deadline to avoid a levy
  • Final Notice of Intent to Levy: LT1058, IRS is ready to seize your assets
  • Notice of Changes: CP22A, changes to your return have been made you have 60 days to appeal
  • Intent to Seize Assets: CP90 and CP297, the IRS will seize your assets
  • Intent to Terminate Your Installment Agreement: CP523, Letting you know you need to make a payment to an existing installment agreement or risk termination, and a levy
  • Possible Revocation or Denial of Passport: CP508C, 90 days or lose ability to leave the country

We are Professional Tax Advocates Fighting to Protect You.

Bring us your letters and notices from the IRS and the state and we will analyze your case and customize a plan of resolution for your specific situation. The most common problem among taxpayers is procrastination. Tax issues need to be answered in a timely manner to avoid bigger problems.

No case is too small for us, no case too big. We are prepared to resolve your case and are equipped with a network of tax resolution professionals.

Many cases can be easily resolved, but some are more complicated. We will review your case, answer your questions and explain your options.

Don’t ignore letters from the IRS or State tax board, as doing so will increase your tax liability, lead to a lien or levy on your property or garnishment of your wages.

Reviews from Our Clients

Lori is a true professional. I had an issue with the IRS and because of Lori’s expertise and efficiency it was resolved quickly, and as if I were her only client. Because of her proficiency and knowledge of the tax codes, she was able to pinpoint a solution and make it seem like it was an easy task! It is obvious that she is well versed in IRS regulations. Lori is impressive to say the least. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

I believe my tax issue was not  easy or typical. Because of Lori’s commitment and determination, it was possible for me to understand what was going on and I received guidance on how to be compliant with my taxes to prevent future issues. In my experience I felt I was respected and it was explained to me with patience what the IRS needed.

Had I known that my issues with the state could be handled in one afternoon with the help of the staff at American Patriot Tax Relief, I would not have procrastinated while my anxiety levels, penalties/interest and collection fees only increased.  As a healthcare professional, I didn’t have the time during the day to call and try to fix this issue myself. I am thankful to have found someone who took the time to listen to my problem, and to have brought a sense of calm into the situation.
