IRS Problems Are More Common Than You Think

1 in 6, or approximately 26 million of 153 million individual taxpayers across the country either disagree over what they owe the IRS or conversely, agree with the amount, but simply can't afford to pay it in full. Of the 26 million individuals with IRS problems, about half owe the IRS $20,000 or more. Until the IRS gets the money, the interest and penalties grow and the IRS becomes ever more intrusive on household finances. If you have tax problems - you are NOT alone.

The IRS Is An Unforgiving Creditor

The IRS is the most powerful collection agency on the planet. The IRS has the power to seize bank accounts, garnish wages and force the immediate sale of homes and other property. The IRS collects tax debt by a variety of extremely intrusive means, and the taxpayer is always playing defense. To collect its money, the IRS will completely disrupt the economic life of a taxpayer, without regard to future consequence for the taxpayer. JLD Tax takes over all IRS communications on your behalf once you become a client.

Stopping the IRS Collection Process

There are procedures taxpayers can use to prevent the seizure of their assets, and if they are eligible, to negotiate the amount they rightfully owe to a discounted rate or to work out a payment plan that the taxpayer can afford so they can stay afloat. But the procedures are arcane, they are not well-publicized – and like anything else, there are competent and incompetent ways to use them.

JLD Tax goes to work immediately to obtain tax relief. JLD takes action to stop IRS levies on bank accounts and IRS seizure of assets. Then the JLD professional will assess the situation and negotiates with the IRS to arrive at a tax debt settlement or payment plan, whatever is the best outcome allowed by law.
