At the end of last tax season, it may have shocked you to learn that you owed the IRS money. Perhaps you still had not paid what you owed from the previous year. Putting off a debt to the IRS is not like avoiding any other debt. The government has powers for collecting unpaid taxes that few other creditors possess. This can include garnishing your wages and putting liens on your property without the bother of a lawsuit.
If you are unable to come up with the funds to pay what you owe to the IRS, there is no need to panic. As severe as the penalties are for unpaid taxes, the government also offers numerous options for repaying your debt. These are not always easy to obtain, so you would be wise to reach out for information and guidance from an experienced legal professional.
