Tax Collections

Protect yourself from the IRS today!

Taxpayers who are unable to pay what they owe to state and federal tax agencies often find themselves entangled in collection proceedings. If the IRS moves to secure their interest, it can wreak havoc on your credit rating and render you unable to secure leases, loans or mortgages. At Platt Park Tax we help individuals and businesses resolve problems involving:

  • Unfiled tax returns
  • Delinquent tax returns
  • IRS tax audits
  • IRS tax liens and levies
  • Tax penalties
  • Innocent spouse matters
  • Installment agreements
  • Property seizures

We have experience supporting clients throughout Colorado find solutions and answers to their payment problems. Let us put our skills and knowledge to work for you.

If you make any arrangements to settle your debt or you fail to pay your taxes, the IRS may levy your assets to satisfy your tax deficiency. Levies are usually issued by the IRS after the following has occurred:

  • You failed to pay or make proper arrangements to settle tax assessed by the IRS
  • The IRS assessed your tax liability and sent you a “Notice and Demand for Payment”
  • The IRS sent you a Levy Notice at least 30 days before the levy

You have 30 days from the date of the notice to contact an IRS manager to review your case. It is critical that you take action immediately. There are certain lines of defense that you may take to either prevent or remove an already existing levy. IRS levies can have a devastating impact on your own and your business’s finances, so it is important that complex IRS communications are handled appropriately. At Platt Park Tax we have extensive experience in handling IRS levy prevention and removal. If you need help resolving your tax problems, contact our firm today.
