Form 941 is a quarterly payroll report filed by employers indicating employees’ wages, tips, withheld tax, medical, taxes, and social security taxes. It is a form of trust fund because the employer is in a fiduciary position to hold fund on employee’s behalf before the government receives it. If an employer fails to do so, it may result to tax liability and accumulation of employment tax debts under form 941 and 940. Consequently, the IRS may decide to get the debt through levies, liens, the sale of assets or getting the business’ trust fund from officers. A person may also end up bearing personal, civil and criminal liability.

Nothing on this earth is scarier than owing money to the Federal Government. This is because of the fact that the IRS will stop at nothing to collect the taxes that are owed. They are the largest and most powerful collection agency in the United States with the full power of the Federal Government behind them. It is not a good idea to fail to file your tax returns, owe unpaid back taxes, this could result in you having to settle your Tax Debt using an IRS Offer in Compromise.

How to qualify for an Offer in Compromise

Not everyone will actually qualify to receive an OIC (Offer in Compromise) from the IRS and just because you filled out the form does not automatically qualify you for Settling a Tax Debt using an IRS Offer in Compromise. There are four preconditions that you must complete before you proceed on to The following are the four steps you must complete in order to move forward

#1 You must be current on filling all past tax returns that you are required to file by law

#2 You have to have had received at least one tax bill from the IRS previously

#3 You must be current on any estimated tax bill payments

#4 If you are business you must be current on all quarterly tax payments

When it comes to Settling a Tax Debt using an IRS Offer in Compromise, the IRS is only willing to make this kind of deal if they are reasonably certain that they are going to collect the most of the tax debt that is owed.

Whether you are an individual with a tax debt problem or a business, you cannot avoid paying your taxes. As a US taxpayer, your income is reported to the IRS by your employer and as a business owner, you are required to submit income reports at regular intervals. So, when tax time comes around the IRS simply waits for you to submit your tax return and they do their calculations and you either get money back or you will be expected to pay the difference at the time you file your return.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.

Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.

Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
