IRS COLLECTIONS HELP
DO YOU OWE BACK INCOME TAX?

If you have fallen behind with paying your income taxes, you are not alone. With the slow economy, it has become very difficult for many California taxpayers to keep up with their income taxes to the IRS and the California Franchise Tax Board. This is a serious problem that requires your immediate attention. If you are in this situation - in need of IRS collection help with unpaid income taxes, it is very important that you immediately get in touch with an income tax lawyer for assistance. You can contact tax lawyer Richard Carpenter today. I can help you regardless of where you live. Put my 30 years of experience as a San Diego Tax Attorney to work for you.

The Internal Revenue Code gives IRS Revenue Officers tremendous power to collect past due tax, interest and penalties from a late-paying taxpayer. The IRS can levy against a taxpayer's wages, bank accounts, retirement plans, escrow accounts and accounts receivable. The IRS also has the power to seize taxpayer assets and sell them off to pay outstanding amounts due. Be advised that the IRS regularly files tax liens against taxpayers who can't fully pay their tax obligations, and these tax liens show up on a taxpayer's credit report and adversely affect their ability to obtain any form of future credit.

WARNING: The IRS has hired new agents nationwide - including in their San Diego and San Marcos, California offices. This means that more San Diego taxpayers will be to subject to greater IRS pressure.

WARNING: The State of California is also in severe financial crisis. This means that those San Diego taxpayers who are delinquent on their California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) income taxes will be subject to greater CA FTB pressure from increased tax levies.

If you owe back taxes and are the subject of an IRS tax collection effort, or have other tax problems, San Diego tax collections attorney Richard Carpenter can help you.

RICHARD CARPENTER's EXPERIENCE ...

     I am one of the leading tax dispute attorney's in the United States.
For the past 30 years, I have successfully represented thousands of clients in resolving their IRS tax disputes. While the circumstances of every IRS collection matter differ, there are certain proven techniques that I use to obtain the best possible results for you.

     I am a part-time tax law professor at the University of San Diego School of Law, a Certified Tax Law Specialist by the state Bar of California, and the author of 14 published articles, one of which is a leading article concerning IRS Collections ("GET THE BEST DEAL FOR CLIENTS FROM THE IRS COLLECTION DIVISION", published in Taxation For Accountants, August 1998 issue, and republished in Taxation For Lawyers,

I have been recognized as one of the Top San Diego County Attorneys in 2007, 2009 and 2010 by the San Diego Daily Transcript legal newspaper and was also named a "Super Lawyer" in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

     Unlike some tax controversy defense attorneys, I did not start out my legal career as an IRS attorney using the Tax Code against honest taxpayers. I also did not start out my legal career as a federal prosecutor working to put good people in prison for some mistakes on their tax returns. Instead, I have devoted my entire 30 year legal career helping to defend hardworking, family-oriented taxpayers against the far and powerful reaches of the Internal Revenue Service and I am proud of that accomplishment. Being an effective tax controversy defense attorney is a mindset and I have had that tax defense mindset for my entire 30 year legal career.

WARNING ABOUT "TAX RESOLUTION" COMPANIES

Don't be fooled by some of those "tax resolution" companies who advertise on the TV, radio and internet. Many of these companies have lots of consumer complaints. Here are three examples:

1) On August 23, 2010, the California Attorney General filed a $34 million dollar lawsuit against the Sacramento based tax help company Roni Deutch, the Tax Lady. The Attorney General alleges that Tax Lady Roni Deutch "engaged" in a heartless scheme that swindled people with tax problems... she promises to signigicantly reduce their IRS tax debts... but providing little or no help."Roni Deutch has now closed and left its clients stranded.

2) On May 13,2010, the Attorney General of Texas charged Tax Masters with multiple violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. According to their Attorney General, "a state investigation and nearly 1,000 customer complaints indicate that the defendants (Tax Masters) routinely misled customers about the nature of their tax resolution service agreements."Tax Masters has recently filed for Bankruptcy and left its clients stranded.

3) As reported by the Wall Street Journal, J.K. Harris, a South Carolina based tax help company - was sued by the Attorney General from 18 different states after it was found that this company didn't get consumers the tax relief it promised. According to the North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, "many consumers paid J.K. Harris for tax help and got nothing but headaches in return." The Massachussetts Attorney General Martha Coakley also stated that J.K. Harris "took advantage of people who paid for tax assistance and, in some instances, profited by taking their money and not giving them any help at all. J.K. Harris has now closed and left its clients stranded.
