If you live in New Jersey, work in New Jersey, or are a U.S. citizen and former New Jersey resident living abroad, you owe certain obligations to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If you fail to meet these obligations, sooner or later, the IRS is likely to come calling. The same goes for paying taxes in New Jersey. The New Jersey Division of Taxation routinely conducts taxpayer audits. And if an audit reveals that you have underpaid your taxes, you can expect the Department of Taxation to come for every last penny that you owe.
From New Jersey Department of Taxation audits to IRS offers in compromise, dealing with tax issues can be extremely stressful. Regardless of whether you did your best to calculate your taxes or your tax issue is not entirely coming as a surprise, you need to confront the issue head-on. Whether that means challenging the IRS’s or New Jersey Division of Taxation’s determination of your tax liability or figuring out a plan to pay what you owe, ignoring the issue is only going to make matters worse. Likewise, if you owe interest and penalties, these costs are only going to increase over time.
If you are facing tax problems in Morris County, NJ, you do not have to face these problems alone. As a Morris County Tax Attorney, I routinely work with local residents and business owners to resolve their issues with the IRS and New Jersey Division of Taxation. When facing a tax problem, the first step is to gain a clear understanding of the scope of the issue. I can help you understand your situation, and I can help make sure you are not held responsible for any more than is absolutely required.

Answers to Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs): Dealing with IRS Tax Controversies
Q: Is it possible to settle with the IRS?
Yes. Over the course of my career, I have helped my clients avoid millions of dollars in tax liability. This includes settling tax debts for a fraction of the amount owed and negotiating away massive IRS penalties. However, in order to obtain this type of outcome, you need to have a clear understanding of the federal tax system and you need to know how to deal effectively with the IRS. Having worked with hundreds of IRS employees on behalf of my clients, I know what works when it comes to negotiating a favorable settlement.
Q: What if I can't afford to pay what I owe to the IRS?
If you cannot afford to pay what you owe to the IRS, in addition to seeking to negotiate your liability, you also have the option of negotiating an installment agreement. The IRS is willing to work with taxpayers who are committed to paying what they can afford. And, if necessary, as a skilled Morris County Tax Attorney, I can help you negotiate an installment agreement that allows you to pay off your tax debt without getting you into other financial trouble.
This, of course, assumes that you actually owe what the IRS says you owe. Before committing to any sort of installment agreement or offer in compromise, it is critical to have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney.
Q: Why do I need to disclose my foreign assets to the IRS?
If you earned income on a foreign asset, you may owe tax on that income to the IRS. Foreign asset disclosures are a unique – and often overlooked – aspect of filing your taxes. If you have concerns about your foreign assets disclosures, I can help make sure you are not at risk for federal prosecution.
