The process of completing and filing tax returns can become overwhelming, especially when you fall behind. If you didn’t file a tax return last year—or you missed filing a return in one or more previous years—it probably happened for a reason.

These are the most common issues taxpayers face that can result in a delinquent return.

  • Missing records or paperwork
  • Inability to pay the amount of tax due, or a reasonable portion
  • Fear of the consequences that may result from owing federal taxes
  • Putting off filing until the last minute, then not being able to finish the task
  • Lack of knowledge about the resources available to taxpayers, such as installment plans for taxes owed

Whatever your reason for waiting to file your return, the J Gannon Helstowski Law Firm can help. We make it easy to prepare and file missing returns by doing the most difficult legwork for you.

Our tax experts can locate your previous wage and mortgage interest information by combing existing IRS back files for all forms W2, 1099 and 1098 submitted in your name. They can also locate the master file transcript (Tax Transcripts) for each tax year in question, which is the document that the IRS uses to prepare a substitute return when you don’t file one. These transcripts contain much of the information you will need to file or amend an previous year’s tax return, such as your adjusted gross income, taxable income, tax rate, number of exemptions, filing status, and even self employment tax if applicable.

If missing records are the issue, we can also help you find substitute documentation that meets IRS standards. But the best reason to take advantage of our comprehensive IRS knowledge and support services is that our tax experts will also check for additional deductions or savings to which you may be entitled.

We are ready to work with you on completing and filing your missing returns, and it’s important to act fast. The longer you avoid dealing with tax debt the more it will cost you in the end, especially if you are experiencing wage garnishment.

Frequently Asked Tax Resolution Questions (FAQ’s)

What’s in my IRS transcript? Do I have access to it?2018-06-16T05:06:15+00:00

The IRS has a master account transcript for every taxpayer covering each tax year. It shows your reported wages, adjusted gross income, taxable income, tax rate, number of exemptions, filing status, and even self-employment tax. It also provides tax professionals with the raw material needed to help you file late returns or recover lost data required to submit returns that are seriously delinquent.

Your transcript may also reveal your payments credited and payment history, the Collection Statute Expiration Date for current taxes owed, and other information about your business with the IRS. While anyone can request their own master account transcript, the process may require some legwork and the information you receive is sometimes difficult to interpret correctly. Our tax experts will order your master account transcript for you, saving you time and hassle. We’ll also guide you through using it, highlighting the pertinent information rather than leaving you to weed through the details on your own.

Do I have to file all my overdue tax returns just to deal with a single tax year?2017-09-04T16:27:20+00:00
