During tax season, more people than ever are receiving unexpected and unwelcomed visits from IRS revenue officers. These visits come about as a result of unpaid tax debt. As part of these visits, taxpayers will often receive a Summary of Taxpayer Contact. This form contains a list of documents and information requested by the IRS, along with deadlines for when the IRS must receive that information. Along with the Summary of Taxpayer Contact, taxpayers often must complete certain forms that provide an overview of the taxpayer’s income and assets. These forms are the 433-A for individuals or the 433-B for businesses. Completing these forms correctly can help you in the resolution of your tax problem.
Reasons to Seek an Attorney When Receiving a Summary of Taxpayer Contact
If you receive a Summary of Taxpayer Contact with a Form 433-A or Form 433-B, it is crucial to seek assistance from an experienced attorney for the following reasons:
- A correctly completed Summary of Taxpayer Contact and Form 433-A or Form 433-B is a powerful tool for negotiating a settlement of your unpaid tax debt.
- Completing the forms may show that you are good candidate for an alternative solution to your tax problem, such as an installment agreement or an offer in compromise.
- Incorrectly completed forms can be used by the IRS to argue that you have the ability to pay more with regard to your unpaid tax debt.
- Incorrectly completed forms may lead the IRS to attempt to collect your debt more aggressively.
