Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Houston

IRS Audits and Examinations:

If your tax returns are selected for examination, we could assist in the following ways:

  1. Represent you by meeting with the Revenue Agent so that you do not have to meet with the IRS personally.
  2. Assist you or your CPA by providing tax guidance and providing information regarding IRS law and procedures.
  3. If you disagree with the IRS determination, the decision could be appealed to the Appeals Division or a Tax Court Petition could be filed.

IRS Collection Problems:

If you are contacted by a Revenue Officer or by mail regarding the collection of unpaid taxes, we could provide the following services:

  1. Meet or contact the IRS on your behalf through a Power of Attorney so that the IRS cannot contact you personally.
  2. If you are unable to pay the taxes in full, there are several alternatives such as:

    a. Secure an installment agreement to pay the taxes over a period of time;

    b. Secure a determination that you are unable to make payments and that the IRS should suspend all collection activity;

    c. Determine whether an Offer in Compromise is feasible to settle your IRS debt for less than the amount owed;

    d. Explore other issues such as innocent spouse or injured spouse options.

Debt Problems:

Bankruptcy can help resolve the following problems:

  1. Chapter 7 bankruptcies can be used to discharge unsecured debts such as credit cards, medical bills, judgments and other unsecured debts.  It will also stop harassing telephone calls, bank garnishments, etc.
  2. In certain cases, a bankruptcy can be used to either discharge income tax liabilities or force the IRS into a payment plan under a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
