Are You Being Audited by the IRS?
If the IRS or state tax authority selected your tax returns for audit, they may question your income or expenses from one or more previously filed tax returns. If you don't provide satisfactory answers, they can disallow your expenses and/or claim you had more income. These changes may result in a potentially large tax bill with penalties and interest added.

Did the IRS Garnish Your Wages or Bank Account, or Do You Have a Federal Tax Lien?
The IRS can place a lien against your property which may impact your credit for many years. If the IRS doesn't collect from you the amount it says you owe, after a while it can also take your assets/income such as bank accounts or wages. Furthermore, if your employer finds out you have a federal tax lien or garnishment, you may worry that your job is in jeopardy. A tax lien may also prevent a new employer from hiring you.
Ellyn Tanenberg, a skilled and caring tax attorney and CPA, has gotten many tax liens and garnishments reduced or removed through her negotiations with the IRS. Call Ellyn Tanenberg if you have been notified that the IRS is attaching a lien to your property or is going to garnish your wages (sometimes for up to 80% of your paycheck). She may be able to reduce or remove the garnishment or lien.

Are You in Dire Straits Because of Past-Due Tax Returns?
If you got behind in filing your tax returns, the IRS can file tax returns for you which frequently deny you many benefits you may be entitled to such as dependency exemptions, business expenses, or itemized deductions.
