Missed due date could leave taxpayers facing collections

A mix-up with information or even forgetfulness can be a serious problem when dealing with the IRS. Some New York residents may think that they have everything in order only to realize later -- maybe due to a notice from the IRS -- that they did not handle a tax-related matter appropriately. Unfortunately, this could result in their facing collections for unpaid taxes.

Filing taxes ahead of time could help avoid errors, collections

For some New York residents, it can sometimes seem like tax season drags on. This year, that feeling is more of a reality because the tax filing deadline was extended. However, that deadline is coming up soon, and taxpayers will certainly want to ensure that they have their information and documentation in order to avoid issues that could lead to collections in the future.

Accusations of tax fraud do not mean a person is guilty

Filing taxes is complicated for most people. Though professionals are available to help, utilizing chain services does not always guarantee that mistakes will be avoided. In serious cases, some New York residents could face accusations of tax fraud if the Internal Revenue Service believes that taxpayers took intentional steps to avoid taxes.

Various options could help taxpayers facing collections

Having debt, especially debt associated with unpaid taxes, can cause a considerable burden on any New York resident's life. Back taxes can lead to notice letters, wage garnishment and other efforts from the IRS to collect on the debt. These actions can lead to a considerable amount of stress, and individuals in this predicament may wonder how they can stop collections.

When does the IRS Criminal Investigation Division step in?

Checking the mail every day is not usually a stressful experience for many New York residents. They expect to receive the usual junk mail, monthly bills and other items, but when an envelope addressed from the IRS arrives, they may experience a bit of anxiety. In most cases, this initial contact simply points out what the agency believes is an error, and taking care of the issue may not be too cumbersome. However, sometimes, the agency's Criminal Investigation Division becomes involved, and this is where many people may begin to panic.
