Instant Tax Solutions is a tax debt relief service with the three types of tax professionals authorized to represent you before the IRS to negotiate on your behalf for your tax debt. These negotiations don't always mean that your debt will go away or lessen, though Instant Tax Solutions can work with offers in compromise. Other negotiations include innocent spouse relief, which means that if your spouse is at fault in your taxes but you are not, you might not be held accountable with your spouse. Instant Tax Solutions can also help with currently not collectible negotiations and help you settle on an installment agreement with the IRS.
One of the scariest things the IRS can do to you if you owe tax debt is levy your property and assets. This can include seizing and freezing your bank accounts and garnishing your wages, as well as forcing you to sell your property so that the money from your assets goes toward your debt. Instant Tax Solutions offers tax debt help and works with the IRS to lift any levies against your property or assets. This company can also work to lift liens off of your credit so that your credit score isn't tarnished by your tax debt.
