Business IRS Issues in Illinois
Businesses with a large amount of debt usually have problems with the IRS as well. Often, businesses owe back taxes to the IRS without even realizing it. For example, if your company runs into financial problems and you fail to meet payroll, you may not be aware that you are still responsible for the payroll taxes on the wages you failed to pay your employees. Over time, penalties and interest accumulate, leaving the business owing an even larger debt to the IRS. This is why it is important to deal with business IRS issues sooner rather than later; before your debt spirals out of control and your business is in danger of going under.
Business Tax Settlements
With an effective negotiating strategy, it is possible to reach a favorable settlement and put your business tax controversy behind you. Settlement options include an “Offer in Compromise” (OIC) where you make a lump sum settlement offer to the IRS for less than the amount owed, or an installment agreement. Recent changes to the IRS “Fresh Start” program have made it easier to qualify for these options. Business bankruptcy is another way to discharge tax debts under certain conditions, but going this route could open the door to other complications, so it should only be done as a last resort.
