Believe it or not, the IRS can make a mistake. But if you do not
catch it, it really does not matter. If you are trying to settle taxes
you may want to think about doing so through an appeal. You need to
have a good reason for doing this. As noted above, this may be a direct
result of a mistake made by the IRS. In this case, you may be able to
appeal your situation and hopefully settle the amount you owe.
First things first, if you are going to settle taxes through an
appeal you must be willing to move forward right away. Waiting is going
to make this process more difficult on you. The second that you realize
an appeal may work you need to get in touch with the IRS for
information on how the process works.
On what grounds can I settle taxes through an appeal? This is the
question that you need to answer. You may find that you are able to
file an appeal, or maybe that you have no reason for doing so.
You may want to file an appeal if you feel that you do not pay what
is being asked of you. There is a chance that you may have sent a
payment that was not credited to your account for one reason or the
next. If this happens you can begin the appeal process and hopefully
find the results you are after soon enough.
If you are lost and do not know if an appeal can help, you should
consider hiring a professional tax settlement service. They can tell
you what the process is for an appeal, how to get started, and what you
can expect. Settling taxes through an appeal is a great option, but
only if you are eligible and know what you are doing. Otherwise, you
are just wasting time and making things more difficult. A professional
can help you decide if this is a good idea.
