Electrical Contractor, Texas $1.7M IRS debt SETTLED for $65k

Business Employment Payroll Tax and Alter-Ego Liens – $1.7 Million 941 Payroll Tax IRS Debt Settled for $65k

This electrical service contractor serviced the schools in a major Texas city. It was a great business until the city retroactively changed the code after a large chunk of work was completed. They were unable to absorb the substantial costs of the changes required. As a result, they were unable to pay their payroll taxes and this started a snowball effect. Before they knew it, the IRS was crawling all over them, they had hired help from other “tax professionals” but the problems just got worse. After several rounds with the IRS they finally found the Tax Clean Up team, and we went to work. We rebuilt everything from scratch, prepared and fought and appealed. We were able to get this done quickly enough to save them from having this reduced to a judgement. Final Result: $1.7M tax debt, settled for $65k.

Nurse, Dallas, TX – Lien EXPUNGED

Tax Clean Up had a lien expunged successfully for this Dallas, TX Nurse. She had gone through tough times several years back, and took some money from her retirement accounts triggering a tax debt. Unfortunately, she had not filed returns in several years and was scared to start filing.

In the last year or two, things began to turn around financially for her and she was working towards getting her credit repaired. She was referred to us and hired Tax Clean Up to help. We sprang into action, prepared and filed missing returns, and within a week we had the old lien released, and then had it withdrawn in under a month. She has since bought a house and remains a happy client.

Real Estate Agent, North Texas – IRS Backed Off

Personal Income Tax – $250,000 owed, the IRS about to seize assets. We told the IRS “Back Off!”.

A Real Estate Agent had not filed returns since 2007 because of the economic downturn and the housing market bubble. The IRS had filed several returns against him with no expenses and made assessments against him in excess of $250,000. They even sent an IRS Field Collection Officer to his home threatening to seize his assets and bank accounts and garnish his wages.

He hired Tax Clean Up to help. We worked quickly to bring his taxes current and correct the delinquent tax filings. We also worked out an agreement with the IRS Revenue Officer to leave him alone. We’re currently considering an Offer in Compromise to settle this case with finality.
