What happens to IRS debts in a divorce?

Divorce is never a simple matter. Couples typically have property, debts, and custody issues to consider. Taxes are often a thorny topic. If the couple filed a joint return in the past, a partner must now sever tax obligations to the other. When the separating couple owes taxes in arrears, it is particularly challenging to know where to turn for answers. The divorce court does not view tax debt any differently than any other debt owed by the couple. The divorce attorneys include tax debts in the same category as mortgage, credit card bills, car loans, and other debts. Assets and debts are then divided between the separating spouses. Tax debt must be divided between the spouses according to state laws and the terms of the divorce settlement. Since tax debt can also seriously affect the couple after divorce, it is important to resolve it now. Community Property States Some states, including Alaska, Wisconsin, Arizona, Washington, California, Texas, Idaho, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Nevada, consider assets (property) and debts assumed during the marriage as community property. Conversely, property and debt acquired before marriage is the personal property... full post

Getting Out From Under Wage Garnishment

Stopping a wage garnishment can be a difficult task, but the feat can often be accomplished with the help of an experienced debt relief attorney. This can even be achieved when facing tax problems in many situations, depending on the level of tax debt. Any creditor has the right to collect debt by taking the debtor to court and request a garnishment, including private or public sector creditors. The best time to address the situation is before the wage garnishment is imposed, but that is not always successful when dealing with an aggressive creditor. Even after the court order is issued, there are methods of at least reducing the strain on your personal budget. However, agencies like the Internal Revenue Service really do not want to request a wage attachment and can be easier to deal with in some cases. Paying Off Creditors This may not be possible for some individuals, but paying off the creditor is always the best option. When dealing with the IRS this may be the best option if they are not filing for a huge sum of back taxes. Receiving a pay off loan or selling personal assets can end the problem immediately and avoid... full post

Stopping an IRS Levy

By the time you receive a tax levy notice from the IRS, the money you owe in back taxes is pending to be forcibly obtained from your available assets as a last resort. Your employer’s hands are tied as well, since the IRS will aggressively pursue them to collect on your unpaid debt if they fail to comply with a garnishment of your wages. When wages are garnished, the IRS will typically draft 25 percent of your income or more. This action alone can create extreme financial hardship, especially if you’re already struggling to make ends meet. However, there are solutions that can stop a levy from taking place if you handle your situation proactively. Ways to Stop a Levy The simplest and fastest way to stop a tax levy from going into effect is to pay off your tax debt. Depending on how much you owe, this can be done by borrowing the funds, selling some of your assets or paying the debt off with a credit card. Unfortunately, paying off your tax debt through these methods can create more problems unless you can receive the money free and clear. Paying Off Your Taxes in Installments Another option to pay off your tax debt... full post

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act and Debt Cancellation

Overview For many people, their homes are their largest and most expensive asset. In addition, for many people in the middle class their net worth is mostly tied up in the equity of their home. There are many people that have had issues with their homes over the past couple of years, however. When the housing market crash in 2007 and 2008, many people found themselves under water on their mortgages where they owed more than the home was worth. In general, when anyone is removed of their obligation on paying back a debt that amount is taxable. For example, if someone owed another person $1,000 and that was cancelled, that $1,000 would be taxable. If a person was in the 20% tax bracket, they would owe $200 on the $1,000 that was cancelled. The good news for home owners that find themselves in a bad situation on a home is that mortgage debt is generally tax exempt. Debt Cancellation Whenever money is borrowed through legal means, a person has the responsibility to pay that debt back. However, due to a variety of circumstances people have to default on their debts all of the time. If a lender cancels a debt that is... full post

IRS Hacked - Thousands Of Taxpayer Records Stolen

The Internal Revenue Service Website has been hacked, which has compromised the personal and financial information of thousands of people. The hackers were able to gain access to over 100,000 accounts. The Internal Revenue Service has stated that there were 100,000 other attempts made, but they were unsuccessful due to incorrect information.
