Wanzer Financial is certified to work with the IRS on your behalf to resolve your tax dispute. Below are the services offered:

1. Unfiled Back Tax Returns:
You missed the tax deadline so what should you do now?
There are many reasons why businesses and individuals do not file their tax returns. They include divorce, death of a spouse, and emotional or financial hardship.  Wanzer Financial can help you complete the filing process. While filing late may include interest and penalties, completing the filing process is always better than ignoring your obligation. Wanzer Financial will provide compassionate and non-judgmental help to get your late tax returns filed. If you can’t afford the tax liability, Wanzer Financial can help work out a payment plan with the IRS on your behalf.

2. IRS Tax Audits:
Your return was selected for an audit what should you do now?
No one wants to receive an audit notice, but there is no reason to panic. Although receiving a letter from the IRS can be disconcerting it doesn’t necessarily mean a major problem exists. Perhaps the IRS is just requesting a few missing documents. Whatever the reason for the audit, Wanzer Financial will face it with you.

It is important to get tax assistance as soon as you receive an audit notice. Ignoring the IRS can turn a simple problem that may have been easy to resolve into a large problem that will cost you substantial time and money. If you get a notice from the IRS and you’re concerned, call Wanzer Financial. We can help explain what the IRS wants and what the next steps should be.  Whether it is a correspondence audit by mail, an office audit at the IRS office or a field office at your home or business, we will represent you and work to resolve the problem.

Hobby Loss Audit:
The IRS may conduct a Hobby Loss audit if the IRS believes that your business is a hobby and not a business at all.  If you find yourself the subject of an IRS Hobby Loss Audit Wanzer Financial can help you navigate the process.

3. IRS Collections:
The IRS will usually accept some type of payment arrangement for past due taxes but there are rules that must be met in order to qualify. Wanzer Financial can work with the IRS to set up a payment plan for you.

Offers-in-Compromise (OIC):
An offer-in-compromise allows the taxpayer to get a fresh start by settling tax obligations with the amount of the offer.  Wanzer Financial can help by reviewing your situation and advising whether or not you are a candidate for an OIC.

Installment Agreements:
If a taxpayer does not qualify for a lump-sum settlement of tax liability through an OIC he or she may qualify for an installment plan to pay the tax liability over time. Wanzer Financial can help establish the payment plan with the IRS.  Although the IRS continues to add penalties and interest while you are making monthly payments, an Installment Agreement will allow the taxpayer to resolve tax liability.

Penalty Abatement:
Wanzer Financial can help get your penalties waived if your circumstances warrant it.

4. IRS Levy and Lien Resolution:
IRS Liens and Levies can wreak havoc on your finances and credit score. If you find yourself with a letter from the IRS regarding a notice of intent to levy or a notice of lien attachment do not ignore it. Wanzer Financial will review your situation to see if there are ways to get your levy or lien released.

5. Payroll Tax Issues:
Payroll tax issues are the number one reason why businesses get into tax trouble. Not paying withholding taxes held in trust for your employees can cause some serious issues. The best cure for avoiding IRS payroll tax troubles is to remain current regarding your federal tax deposits. However if you find yourself in with unpaid payroll taxes, Wanzer Financial can help.  We will analyze your situation and work with the IRS to get you back into tax compliance.

6. IRS Appeals:
Wanzer Financial can represent you during the IRS appeals process.  Having your offer-in-compromise, installment agreement proposal, or other proposal rejected by the IRS is not necessarily the final answer.  Wanzer Financial will present your case to the IRS appeals officer in an attempt to get your dispute settled.

Wanzer Financial’s approach to payroll is to make the process seamless for your business.  You can trust that your payroll is in good hands with Wanzer Financial.  There’s nothing better than personal attention from a trusted advisor who knows your business.
