Searching for the right tax relief program can be tricky, with the many avenues and guidelines that the IRS uses in establishing who qualifies for which tax relief programs.   When exploring your options, it is important to understand that the IRS provides standard deductions which determine what the IRS will allow as an expense for the household, against any income. Many tax relief programs are based upon the tax payers ability to pay.  So, how does the IRS determine whether they believe you have “the ability to pay”?

The answer lies in what the IRS refers to as “standard deductions”.  These “standard deductions” are used to determine how much “disposable income” you have to pay them back for back taxes.

As an example, the IRS might give you a “standard deduction” expense for your mortgage of $1,000 for your specific city and state.  Let’s assume you actually have a mortgage of $1,500. When looking at this example, the question arises as to whether the IRS allows you to deduct the  $500 of actual expenses from the mortgage when determining how much you can afford to pay them back.  The bad news is the IRS does not care, and does not give your credit for your real mortgage cost. In our example, your mortgage expense that exceeds the “standard deduction” ($500) is not allowed.  The IRS treats that extra $500 mortgage expense as if it does not exist.  This is the harsh reality that the IRS places on all of us taxpayers with back tax problems in search of a tax relief program.

As you can extrapolate from that example, the IRS is acting in their best interest, and not yours. As stated earlier, most tax relief programs are determined by the IRS rules on your ability to pay.

However, if you find a trustworthy tax resolution firm that understands the IRS tax code as well or better than most IRS agents, you will be in a much better position to get results that favor you.
