This is an area that the IRS pursues very vigorously, so there are many people who try this and get caught. These people and groups generally fall into two categories: the promoters and the victims. The promoters are willful violators of the law and I cannot help them.
However, I can generally help those in the second group. Before I can help a person, however, he must be willing to again begin filing and paying his taxes. This means that the first step is filing returns for those years that were not filed. Then, assuming that the taxpayer cannot pay the taxes in full, we will work on an Offer In Compromise or Installment Agreement to show that the taxpayer’s intentions are honorable. Once those two steps are taken, we will address the criminal charges to reduce them as much as possible, depending on the particular set of circumstances. Remember that you cannot improve your situation unless you take action.
