Discharge Taxes in Bankruptcy

We have a distinguished record in discharging tax debt in bankruptcy. Our founding partner, Jenny L. Doling, is not only a Taxation, LL.M. degree holder but also a California State Bar Certified Bankruptcy Specialist. Our approach involves:

  • Maximizing relief under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
  • Employing a blended strategy for tax resolution, ensuring the greatest possible tax debt relief for our clients.

Offers in Compromise

We facilitate negotiations with the IRS and other taxing authorities to settle your tax debts under the most favorable terms. Our services include:

  • Personalized assessment of your financial situation.
  • Crafting tailored solutions that work for your specific tax debt issues.

Tax Liens

Our team specializes in evaluating tax liens to determine their validity and legal enforceability. This involves:

  • Thoroughly assessing the proper recording and validity of each tax lien.
  • Identifying any defects that could render the lien unenforceable.

Innocent Spouse Relief Matters

In matters of innocent spouse relief under 26 U.S.C. ‘ 6015 of the Internal Revenue Code, we provide strong legal representation. This is not an easy process but with the right representation, you can prevail.

The non-relief requesting spouse may oppose or support granting innocent spouse relief.  It’s imperative to put your best arguments forward in support of your innocent spouse relief petition or in opposition to your spouse’s relief petition. Our services include:

  • Developing persuasive arguments for your relief petition.
  • Representing clients in both support and opposition of spousal relief petitions.

Installment Agreements

Installment agreements can be a great option for dealing with tax debt, but they should not be entered into without the evaluation of a qualified tax attorney. The IRS does not represent you and your best interests. 

If there are tax years you may not be liable for, you would not want those included in your installment agreement.  Our comprehensive tax transcript analysis is critical to reducing your tax liability.

We offer counsel on installment agreements as a means to manage tax debt, ensuring they are in your best interests. Our approach includes:

  • Evaluating each client’s situation to determine if an installment agreement is suitable.
  • Conducting an in-depth analysis of tax transcripts to reduce overall tax liability.

Penalty Abatement

Imagine if your IRS imposed penalties were abated (reduced or eliminated).  Abatement can often result in a significant refund owed to the taxpayer. That refund can then offset legitimate, remaining tax debt. Why ignore your abatement options?  We can help with penalty abatement, which can result in:

  • A substantial reduction or complete elimination of penalties.
  • Potential refunds that may offset existing tax debts.

Suspended Passports

We provide urgent assistance for clients with suspended passports due to tax debts exceeding $50,000. Our services in this area include:

  • Liaising with the IRS and U.S. State Department to address the suspension.
  • Implementing strategies to reduce tax debt below the threshold and restore passport privileges.
  • Immediate consultations to get passport suspensions lifted and prevent travel limitations.

Tax Evasion, Tax Audit Representation, and Tax Appeals

You must have experienced tax counsel to represent you in these areas of tax controversy.  Remember, the IRS is represented by its attorneys in the Chief Counsel’s Office.  Without counsel representing your interests you will be railroaded.  You cannot afford an adverse ruling against you. 

Handling tax controversies like tax evasion, audits, and appeals requires skilled legal representation. We offer:

  • Expert counsel to protect your rights and interests.
  • Strategic representation against the IRS and in court.

Payroll Tax Problems

Many companies struggled to meet their payroll obligations during the pandemic. Payroll tax problems are very serious. The portion of tax withheld from your employees’ checks is call the “trust fund portion.”

Trust fund payroll tax obligations never go away. They are not dischargeable in bankruptcy and they will survive the closing of the business. Trust fund payroll taxes will follow the owners and those authorized to sign checks for the business (even if they’re not owners). 

If you have delinquent payroll taxes, you need our firm right now. We can help by:

  • Resolving ‘trust fund’ payroll tax obligations.
  • Providing legal assistance to both businesses and individuals with delinquent payroll taxes.

Failure to File Tax Returns

We have met hundreds of clients over the past 25 years who stopped filing taxes simply because they feared what the IRS would do because they owed the IRS money they could not afford to pay.  You must always file your tax returns in a timely manner, even if you cannot pay. 

Why?  Because filing will start the statute of limitation (the time the IRS has to collect the tax debt owed).  Failing to file your returns is far more harmful than owing taxes.   Let’s get you into compliance by getting those unfiled returns filed now.

Our firm helps clients who have not filed tax returns due to financial constraints. We emphasize:

  • The importance of filing returns timely to initiate the statute of limitations.
  • Assisting in getting clients back into compliance by filing unfiled returns.

California Sales, Income, and Payroll Tax Problems

If you have California business or personal tax problems, you should know, California can be relentless in its efforts to collect taxes owed. It can record liens on your property, garnish wages, levy bank accounts, and more.  We can help you in resolving your tax problems with any California taxing authority.  

Dealing with the aggressive tax collection efforts in California requires experienced legal assistance. We handle issues with:

  • California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) for sales tax problems.
  • Franchise Tax Board (FTB) for California income tax issues.
  • Employment Development Department (EDD) for payroll tax problems.

At J. Doling Law, PC , we commit ourselves to resolve your tax problems with utmost diligence and expertise. Our comprehensive approach combines in-depth legal knowledge with practical experience to deliver results that protect your financial interests. For a consultation and to learn how we can assist you with your tax concerns, contact us at (844) 894-4440.
