Back Taxes: How To Benefit From A Tax Help Program

Posted on 15. Dec, 2011 by in Back Tax Returns, Filing Back Taxes, Need to File Back Tax Returns

If you are having tax relief and tax settlement issues with the Internal Revenue Service, it makes good sense to find a tax help program.

IRS itself offers taxpayer assistance in various matters, from the very simple to the somewhat more complex.

However, an IRS tax help program is often not the best possible solution.

You should first do an inventory of your own knowledge of the federal tax system and what you know about the Internal Revenue Code.

The next step is to decide if you really understand the intricacies of your individual difficulties with the agency. Sometimes the problem is not as simple as it seemed at first glance. Or, there may even be multiple problems.

At this point you are likely to say to yourself, “I need some professional assistance for my own tax help program.”

Having made this choice, you now need to find a certified public accountant (CPA) or a tax attorney (there are some tax professionals who are both a CPA and a tax attorney) who can meet certain basic criteria.  Back tax returns can be tough.

You want someone who has solid professional qualifications, an impeccable history, a fee schedule that you can meet, and is accessible without you having to jump through hoops. If the person is also a paid tax preparer, you want to be sure he or she possesses a Preparer Tax Identification Number.

Remembering that your goal is to embark on a tax help program unique to your personal needs, you should come well prepared to your first meeting with the tax professional. This means that you must bring all relevant records and receipts and all correspondence from IRS to the meeting. Also be prepared to answer a lot of questions in detail and honestly.

You should try to stay abreast of all developments in your case. At the same time, be sure to know up front how much it will cost you to have a short telephone conversation with the tax professional you have retained for your tax help program.

Always keep in mind that your ultimate goal is to settle your problem with IRS as quickly as possible and at the least cost to yourself.

This goal is usually achievable if you take the time to carefully consider everything that should go into your own tax help program.
