Not filing your tax returns for years at a time can lead to serious consequences. It is not advisable to ignore your annual tax filing because the IRS will almost always catch up with you.
What happens when you do not file your tax return:
Our Chicago tax firm has developed an effective process to stop this from happening even if you have unfiled tax returns today.
Every year, most citizens and US residents are required to file their personal tax returns with the IRS. Sometimes this includes a payment of any taxes that are owed. When you do not file your taxes, you become exposed to IRS enforced collection measures.
When you have unfiled tax returns, there are four things to keep in mind:
A Substitute for Return (SFR) is filed when the IRS prepares a tax return on your behalf because you have not filed. Because the IRS often does not have all of the pertinent information, SFRs can reflect the highest tax liability and the IRS then will hold you responsible for this amount plus any unfiled tax return penalties and fees.
It is possible to correct an SFR, however, by consulting with the professionals at our Chicago tax resolution firm. When necessary or advantageous, we can prepare previous years’ returns and file them on your behalf. This will bring you into compliance with the IRS filing requirements and will often significantly lower or even eliminate your tax liability.
By working with our Chicago tax resolution firm, you can manage any problems that unfiled tax returns may have caused. We have served 15,000 customers, saving them 19 million dollars over the span of fifteen years. We know how stressful working with the IRS can be and we can handle it for you.
George at the tax defenders was very pleasant and knowledgeable about tax liens with the IRS although we spoke briefly he was to educate me on how the tax lien process works. Than You?
I heard the ad for Tax Defenders on the radio in California, twice in two days. My stress level about my tax situation was at its peak and I prayed for help. It took me a couple days to get the courage to call, but as soon as I did, and spoke with George Diversiev, I felt some relief...I think I even cried when I told him for the first time in a long time, I felt there was a way out of my situation. I sent them what they needed and was thrilled and even more relieved when they were able to come up with a plan. Yes, I have had to pay some fees to file taxes and start the process to resolve my tax issues; however, I had no idea where to start or what to do myself. George was so very nice and easy to talk to and not once did I feel like I was being judged. I have been treated extremely well and very much appreciate the patience and respect shown towards me, especially at times when I was so busy with a new job and "life" that I was slow at getting information or signatures back to them. Finally, during my most recent conversation with George, I heard great news at what the outcome of this journey would be and that my tax obligation would be minimal compared to what it was when we started. I will never forget during an early conversation when George told me, "If it is a choice between paying a bill to keep your phone on (needed for work) or other needs, pay the bill, and if needed we can postpone a couple payments. I truly believe that George, and the other individuals I have worked with at Tax Defenders, saved my life. I am able to hold my head up a live without that dread hanging over my head. Thank you!
The Tax Defenders team have been a blessing for me. Right from my first conversation with George I knew I found who I was looking for to help me out of this hole I've hid in for years. There was long period of my life I was kept up late at night stressing over the IRS and the powers they have. The Tax Defenders have gone above and beyond my expectations. They have made sure I feel protected from the IRS and that they absolutely have my best interest in mind. The relief I've experienced is exactly what I've been wanting since that first sleepless night. Recently I've had a big life obstacle and without missing stride George and his team have been there for me in an amazing way. There's no way I could feel this protected without THE TAX DEFENDERS by my side!!!
I called for a taxation question not knowing what to expect and George was amazingly friendly and understanding during the call. He was unsure initially but did some research and sought out his colleagues; he called me with accurate (though not an ideal response:/) response. I would definitely recommend the tax defenders to anyone in need of taxation/legal advise! Thanks George - now get some sleep!! (Per your online profile).
I first contacted The Tax Defenders after trying to resolve my tax issue with the IRS for more than one one year. I met one roadblock after another. After many hours of being on the phone and most of that time on hold I would be told repeatedly from different IRS representatives that I should just agree to a payment plan or possibly pay the amount owed on a credit card. Both options suggested to me were unrealistic as there was no possibility of ever getting out from under the debt. On my initial contact with The Tax Defenders I spoke with Derek Bergman. Derek seem very professional and knowledgeable while asking me questions about my tax situation. I was told by Derek that with the information I had given him that him and his associates would evaluate the amount owed and my current income and expenses and would be in touch with me very soon. No charge for consultation or evaluation. Within a few days I received a followup call from Derek and him saying that he felt that I was a good candidate for a substantial reduction in my tax liability, and although he gave me no guarantee he sincerely felt that The Tax Defenders could help me. I felt very comfortable with Derek from our very first conversation. After agreeing to go forward The Tax Defenders were in constant contact with me and I was encouraged to call them at anytime that I had a concern or question. I had the pleasure of speaking with Annie Cole many times through e-mails, text and phone conversations and she was always so very pleasant and nice. During the period of my resolution for the OIC I spoke with several of The Tax Defenders associates and colleagues, many of whom I cannot remember their names but I do remember also Karla Ortiz and Colleen Nilson. I cannot even begin to praise all of the staff for their professionalism and courtesy in the way that each and every one of them spoke with me and handled my tax problem. I would not hesitate at all in recommending The Tax Defenders for anyone who may find themselves with an overwhelming tax problem. And by the way my liability to the IRS was reduced from more than $30,000 to $250.00...fantastic work on The Tax Defenders end....
I was so burdened by tax issues that I simply did not want to deal with it. I watched numerous commercials about how I could get help with my tax debt but I just didn’t know who I could really trust. After receiving what seemed like hundreds of “tax help” letters in the mail, I finally decided to sit down and review the information. I ended up narrowing the stack down to 3 companies based on the thorough information but mainly the genuineness of the message. After going through the 3 with my son who is an extremely skeptical corporate attorney, The Tax Defenders would get the call. The call to The Tax Defenders – After making that one call it was not necessary for me to call anyone else. First, I was so nervous and expected a huge sells pitch from the start, so my guard was up and I was prepared to hang up quickly. BUT TO MY SURPRISE – I was quickly and easily transferred to someone, no long waiting and screening. Wow! BEST OF ALL – Kelly ****** answered my call. If I had known I would talk to someone with such compassion and honesty, I would have saved myself a great deal of stress a long- long time ago. What a breath of fresh air. I was literally in tears at the end of our conversation because I felt as if a burden had been lifted from my shoulders. Because of the information, professionalism and respect given to me by Kelly and The Tax Defenders, I would utilize their services now and in the future and would recommend them to others who are looking to solve tax issues once and for all.
My phone call was answered and immediately transferred to a tax professional. I received direct answers to the questions I had.
