Los Angeles Tax Debt Attorneys

Comprehensive Tax Debt Assistance for Businesses & Individuals

Our lawyers at Weintraub & Selth, APC want you to know that there are options if you have fallen behind on your tax responsibilities. Rather than living with the stress and trying to avoid the IRS, deal with the situation by seeking out the counsel of our dedicated and qualified tax debt relief attorneys.

Our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience assisting individuals and businesses struggling with tax debt. While initial taxes may be a challenge, when penalties and interest are also assessed, the tax debt can seem overwhelming. Turn to Weintraub & Selth, APC to get help resolving even your most serious tax debt issues.

What Types of Taxes Are Dischargeable?

The types of debt you can discharge vary depending on the chapter of bankruptcy you file. Taxes that can be discharged also vary depending on your particular situation. Not all debts are dischargeable and, when you contact Weintraub & Selth, APC, we will identify your dischargeable and nondischargeable debt as well as your secured and unsecured debt.

When you speak to our legal professionals, we will explain all of your options, including your dischargeable tax debt. These may include:

  • Income taxes
  • Tax returns that were due at least three years ago
  • Tax returns filed at least two years ago
  • Taxes that were assessed at least 240 days ago

If the IRS determines fraud or willful evasion, the tax debt, interest, and penalties will not be dischargeable. However, our attorneys may be able to provide evidence and argue that fraud and willful evasion did not take place.

Regardless of the reason, if you have been unable to pay your taxes, you may be subject to:

  • Harassment by debt collectors
  • Repossession of your vehicles and foreclosure or your home or other property
  • Tax liens against your property
  • Wage garnishment

These actions may only be taken after significant tax delinquency, but if you are in the midst of these kinds of challenges, our firm may be able to put an end to these actions.

Experienced Bankruptcy Attorneys

The Right Firm Makes a Difference

Now Is the Time to Address Your Tax Debt

Do not wait to address tax debt. Once the IRS informs you they are coming to collect; the process can happen almost immediately. If at all possible, contact us before the situation becomes dire. As your representatives and advocates, our attorneys will identify any dischargeable tax debt that you have and help you emerge from the shadow of the IRS. If bankruptcy is the appropriate solution, an automatic stay will put an immediate end to creditor harassment including collection actions of the IRS.

Our attorneys routinely negotiate with the IRS to help clients discharge taxes and resolve tax issues. Restructuring your tax debt may be one solution and there may be others. From our offices in Los Angeles, we help individuals and businesses with tax management and tax restructuring using all available legal methods.

The IRS offers few options to deal with outstanding tax liabilities. Because we have been bankruptcy attorneys for many years and have represented thousands of people through the bankruptcy process, we know how to maximize the few opportunities provided by the IRS. A solution that is appropriate for your situation may include setting up a fair installment repayment plan or negotiating an equitable offer in compromise. You may be allowed certain scheduled expense deductions when calculating what you have to repay. Whether you are a business owner, a member of a corporation, or an individual with tax debt, we can help.

Each situation is different, and there is no “one-size-fits-all” path to tax debt relief. You may have dischargeable tax debt, or you may not. There may be other solutions. Our legal team will create a legal strategy tailor-made for you. Only after we have met with you and analyzed your circumstances can we determine the best path forward.
