Owing money to someone is never fun. However, it is a whole new level when it is the IRS that is knocking at your door for the money owed. I don’t mean literally, but even a phone call or a registered letter in the mail is enough to get most people shaking when it comes to the Internal Revenue Service. I knew that I had to find a company that offers some type of tax relief in Los Angeles, or at least come viable advice when it comes to someone who wants to pay but just is not able to pay the full amount.
I got into this mess because I trusted the wrong people, and I gotten taken advantage of quite badly. They walked away with the profits, and I walked away with a huge amount of debt that I was responsible for all on my own. I knew that the IRS would not want to hear any sob stories, and I honestly did not blame them for that. I had been in business long enough to know that people can and will say most anything. Even though my story is pure truth, it was still not their fault.
I was able to find a lawyer here in town who was able to point me in the right direction with the tax help that I needed. The best way to resolve my debt was to give an offer in compromise, which simply means I would not have to repay the full amount if we could come up with an amount that was agreeable to both sides. Knowing that my tax debt could be relieved for mere pennies on the dollar sounded like a huge blessing to me, and I am so grateful that I was able to make this work out.
