Backlog on Taxes? Get a CPA for Back Taxes

Backlog on Taxes? Get A CPA for Back Taxes

Nothing can be more stressful and alarming to have found your name in the black book of the IRS. It can be a case where you owe money following an audit, or taxes due in the current year or the previous year/s, or even worse where it can be case of many years of back taxes.

Owing money to the IRS can be devastating and destroy you beyond help if left unpaid. Though it may seem cruel from your point of view but the fact is that the IRS has the right to place levies and liens against your property to make up for the tax repayment. You may question yourself-“Why me”? Well, the truth is that it is not just you but according to a study” a maximum of twenty million of Americans owe money to the IRS.

Now that you have just realized it, don’t brush this matter with a wave of your hand and say “Oh!! Then it’s ok.” NO!!! It’s not!! When faced with back taxes you need to get help as soon as possible because if you maintain a lackadaisical attitude, it could lead to seizure of your home sweet home, automobile/s, or bank account/s with serious effects on your credit. And you don’t want to see that happen, you need a CPA or EA for back taxes.


Working along with a CPA for back taxes is probably the most sensible decision to take. Not only that, working along with a CPA or EA for back taxes could avert you from ever needing the solutions of a tax lawyer. Anyone who has ever faced an audit knows how confusing, complex, and frustrating the experience can be. Though one may represent themselves or hire a tax lawyer for their back taxes, but hiring an EA or CPA for back taxes is the best alternative as they provide a valuable service.

An EA or a CPA has the same knowledge as well as the same practice as tax lawyers have. In addition to that they are the lower cost alternatives. Though they are the second category of tax professionals with the credentials to appear as a taxpayer’s representative before the IRS procedures, they too are adept with IRS audits. CPAs and EAs maintain and update themselves on the latest changes in IRS laws, forms and procedures with the help of their credentials that they earn with continuing education programs.

CPA or EA for back taxes are usually recommended as they have expertise and may offer the best guidance in accounting, bookkeeping services, record keeping, especially when facing complex financial situations caused by lifestyle changes such as an ugly divorce, retirement, or closing a business. To maximize one’s chances of winning a tax settlement and at the same time minimizing meeting up with the IRS agents, EAs and CPAs are the best option.

A CPA or an EA for back taxes would be beneficial as a tax professional is more experienced when it comes to the ins and outs of the tax code which will be advantageous when one files their returns especially if the EA/CPA has expertise in your area of business. Though you may have the benefit of a doubt, think it over; the U.S. tax code is over 14,000 pages long. Though it’s unlikely that the EA/CPA has read it from A to Z, you can be assured that the CPA/EA has already handled a situation like yours and knows which mistakes to avoid provided they’ve been practicing for many years.


When hiring a CPA/EA for back taxes keep in mind the following:
1. Before hiring a CPA or an EA, track his/her credentials.
2. Be wary if the CPA or EA demands that he/she be paid in full in the first meeting.
3. If the CPA or EA guarantees 100% results, back off that very moment because, there is no way the case will be an easy ride.
4. Don’t be afraid to ask “How long the CPA or EA has been working in representation”.

Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
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.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. 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.
