Back Taxes – Unfiled Tax Returns – Nasty Letters – Audits

We are your Orange County Tax Preparers – Each week we have the privilege to meet good people who have a bit of a financial mess to straighten out, or who are actually being harassed by the overwhelming power of the IRS or those bothersome State Tax agencies such as the Franchise Tax Board FTB (state Income taxes), EDD (payroll taxes), or State Board of Equalization BOE (sales taxes).

Back Taxes – Threatening Letters

There is nothing more stressful – than having the IRS, the FTB (California Franchise Tax Board) State Board of Equalization (SBE), or the California Employment Development Department EDD (tasked with collecting: the unemployment insurance [UI] tax, the employment training tax [ETT], the disability insurance [DI] tax, and the personal income [PIT] tax) chasing after you, threatening you with a lien, levy, audit or worse. MORE about Back Taxes…

If you are facing pressure from any of these government taxing agencies – you might, if it gets worse, need a tax attorney, but in 90% of cases, what you really need is to get your financial records in order – to see where you stand. Once your records are in order, any and all past tax returns completed, it often turns out that your anxiety and panic will subside as you are now able to face these scary agencies with the facts. Often the facts of what you owe are far less than you imagined! Virtually all tax agencies will work with you once your financial records are in order and you figure out where you stand and what you can do to get back on track. Call us. Let us help you sort out your mess. Once we get started, your stress and anxiety will be replaced by optimism and a feeling of being in control of your financial life once again.
