How does tax debt relief work?

There are many tools the IRS can use to force you to pay your tax debt, and they won’t hesitate to use them! Putting a lien on your property, garnishing your wages, and adding penalties are just some of the things they have the authority to do. They can also pull money out of your bank accounts, hold your refund, and in some cases, they can even revoke your passport. Once the IRS or state agency starts wielding their power over you, it can be very hard to recover. The quicker you can get the IRS out of your financial life, the better.


Here's how TaxAudit’s tax debt relief program can work for you.

With tax debt relief, TaxAudit works with you to proactively engage with the IRS or state agency to come to an agreement on how to get the debt paid off. What this agreement looks like will be different for each person and is greatly dependent on how much debt you have and your financial situation.


When the IRS looks at your case, they are looking at your potential to pay off the debt. If you can prove a financial hardship, the IRS may settle your debt for less than you owe. In many cases they would rather get a little bit of money than nothing at all. Even if your potential to pay is high, we can likely get the IRS to work with you. In many cases, we can remove penalties and stop wage garnishments. We can also help you establish an affordable payment plan with the IRS.


TaxAudit develops a personalized tax debt relief plan to help you get as much tax debt relief as possible.
