How the Government Handles Unpaid Taxes
The process of collecting unpaid taxes begins soon after the tax deadline. The first step is sending a notice of the money that is owed. You will find that you are billed not only for the taxes but also for interest charges and penalties. If you can’t afford to pay the bill, it is important not to ignore it, as penalties and interest will continue to accrue, and the government will take steps to collect the money that is owed.
Some of the methods used to collect unpaid taxes include:
- Wage garnishment
- Bank account garnishment
- Seizure of tax refunds
- Impose a lien on your property
- Seize your property and sell it
Because these methods are severe, it is best not to ignore the tax bill. Paying the bill is the fastest way to resolve the problem if you have the money to pay the taxes that are owed. If you are unable to pay your tax debt, there are options that can help. An experienced attorney can evaluate your situation and explain how you can resolve your tax debt problem.
Resolving Your Tax Debt
There are a few possible options for tax debt resolution, depending on your situation. You could make monthly payments with an installment plan, but you will continue to accrue penalties and interest. It may be possible to request a penalty abatement to erase some of the tax penalties or negotiate an offer in compromise for less than the full amount owed. In addition, older tax debt may be eliminated through the bankruptcy process.
