Free Consultation - FAQ
Our experienced professionals will hear your case and provide you a free tax analysis discussing the best potential resolutions to your tax liability. At Community Tax, we understand the pressure you face and how to turn your situation around, in order to protect your livelihood.
Our Investigation process begins by filing a Tax Authorization Information Form 8821 with the IRS and/or the appropriate form for the State Taxing authority on your behalf in order to obtain a complete record of your account. Upon completion, we will contact you to discuss the best way to address the problem.
The resolution phase of our process begins by gathering more in depth financial information and documentation in order to prepare an in depth proposal for submission to the IRS and/or State. Our team is here for you and our goal is to not only fix your tax issues, but to keep you tax debt free in the future.
What we offer
Communty Tax offers these types of debt resolutions:
Taxpayers that are not currently in financial hardship, but may be very close to that threshold, may be able to qualify for an Offer In Compromise.
The installment agreement is a method of tax debt resolution that allows an individual to pay off their balance over a period typically ranging from 6 months to ten years.
This form of Installment Agreement exists to allow taxpayers to finish payment on a large expense, such as a car loan or child support payments. This plan begins with a divided payment schedule in which the larger expense gets the main focus and small installments are collected on the unpaid tax balance.
This type of installment agreement comes with a couple of strict guidelines that determine an individual’s eligibility. There are some added benefits that make this program worthwhile, such as not having to disclose all of a taxpayer’s financial information to the federal or state tax agency.
The PPIA is a bit more complicated to manage from a records perspective, but can save taxpayers a substantial amount on their tax balances. Taxpayers following this plan have to disclose all financial information and documents to the IRS to be accepted.
As one of the more accommodating agreements, the CIA allows taxpayers to continue paying a long-term monthly bill or expense(s) while still addressing their tax debt problems. Those that qualify for this agreement must have a steady payment schedule for something like a 401k program or a credit card that they are required to keep. The CIA usually lasts for 60 months and pays the debt in full.
This straight-forward payment method is a simple installment plan in which the taxpayer settles their entire tax debt over many payments. The amount is divided into monthly installments over the 10-Year Statute of Limitations and is based off of the taxpayer’s current financial situation.
Taxpayers that are struggling with financial hardship may be able to find a way to be completely relieved of their IRS debt. Currently Not Collectible Status removes the taxpayer’s tax balances from active collections with the IRS.
Penalties can quickly turn a tax debt situation from bad to worse. With our penalty abatement assistance, the added penalties to tax obligations may be removed.
My case was untraditional as I'm more hands on than most. Community Tax did an investigation into my tax issue as part of their phase 1 program. I have to say that you can't get a CPA to look over your complete tax record for $250.00 as their phase 1 costs. I think more of the money might be made through phase 2 and negotiations with Federal and State agencies. They are creating a new standard for the industry and customer best interests come first.
I stopped before going into Phase 2 for two reasons, I was afraid of being taken advantage of not knowing what I was doing and I believe no client should pay full price for a service until they know what kind of options are available to them and what the expectations of the service are. Let that not be evidence of dissatisfaction: quite contrary… Let me put it into perspective for you here.
My tax bill was $35,000. Healthy, but not massive. I would expect to pay around $4,000 to a CPA or Tax Consultant to help me with my tax problem. The average client, at a tax resolution firm, spends between $3,500.00 - $7,000.00 just to the company handling the tax problem. The more you owe, the more complex your scenario, and the overall time estimated to handle your tax resolution will lean you more towards the top end of that.
I owed $35,000, I had 6 returns to be filed, 1 to be amended, and the TOTAL cost as a percentage of the TOTAL tax bill that Community Tax LLC proposed to charge me WAS ONLY 4% percent of the outstanding debt, including the investigation. You can do the math, but I'll give you a hint, it was going to cost under $1,500.00 in service fees to the company for an investigation, filing the returns, amending the returns and settling my debts for my particular case. Note, your price will be specific to your circumstances, I can't express the importance of that.
You can trust this company.
I personally did not go into phase 2 because,
A. As I had stated early on, I was more hands on and only interested in the investigation. I would handle the returns myself. No foul. A+
B. An early on miscommunication between myself, the client and the sales rep which was later resolved to my full satisfaction. The Customer Satisfaction Department is. No foul. A+
C. I thought of a different way to get the tax bill handled. No foul. A+
My experience with the customer satisfaction department was A+. Definitely reach out to them if you have questions or concerns.
Great overall experience. AAA+++
