What you need to know when it comes to taxes owed

While it is easy to get behind on taxes, it is a mistake for Michigan taxpayers to ignore notices received from the IRS. The criminal penalties you potentially face mean that you need to take immediate attention.

This does not mean you are defenseless, however. In 1998, there was a bill designed to restructure the IRS, and it provided taxpayers rights concerning a number of circumstances. This included having the IRS provide you of an explanation of your rights when the collection process takes place.

Your rights when it comes to collection activities

It is important to remember that the IRS makes mistakes. The IRS saying you owe a specific amount in back taxes does not mean that their figures are correct. Most importantly, you need to remember:

  • You as a taxpayer have a right to due process.
  • While your former spouse may be guilty of wrongdoing, you may still receive innocent spouse relief.
  • You may be eligible for an installment payment arrangement. You can also offer the IRS an offer in compromise.
  • The IRS cannot throw you in jail simply because you are unable to pay your taxes.

Despite your rights as a taxpayer, dealings with the IRS continue to be intimidating and stressful. When the IRS states you owe money, it has at its disposal a number of tools to collect tax deficiencies. Rather than meet with IRS agents on your own, it is almost always a good idea to have legal representation present in helping tell your side of the story.
