Each case is different, advice can vary among clients. Nina Olson, the IRS' Taxpayer Advocate, explains the next steps process on her comments from Marketplace March 28th, 2010.
"The IRS has a policy where if the taxpayer comes in voluntarily, and we have not found that taxpayer first -- we really ask the taxpayer to go back and file six years. Then, the IRS is able to provide -- not necessarily all six years worth of data, but any time there's a W-2 or 1099 going back about five years -- we can provide that information."
Olson also said if they hadn't been caught by now, it's probably because the government actually owed them for some of those years. If it turns out they're on the hook, the IRS has payment plans to help ease the pain.
The Fresh Start Tax staff has been dealing with these issues for over 28 years. The tax team is comprised of Tax attorneys, CPAs, former IRS agents and instructors as well as former IRS supervisors. Steps to resolve cases are quite simple. Fresh Start Tax secures a power of attorney and handles all the communication with the IRS. Next, they obtain the appropriate records from the IRS and examine them. The tax returns are prepared and Fresh Start Tax works out a settlement with the IRS.
