Back Taxes Explained And Resolved By Joe Mastriano, CPA.
Back taxes are commonly referred to as tax debt. They are actually unpaid amount of back taxes that has been assessed against a person (taxpayer) by the Government. The IRS tax debt refers to the federal income taxes that are outstanding. These back taxes are assessed when a taxpayer does not file their tax return, or when they do not make payment for the back taxes that are due. Generally, back taxes can be referred to as the taxes that taxpayers owe to the Government from previous years. Most of the time, the balance due will include penalties and interest if it was not paid when they were due.
If you have back taxes then I would advise you to make sure that you resolve these back taxes issues as soon as possible. Do not delay, you are likely to suffer liens and levies on your assets, as well as other consequences. Hire an experienced certified accountant for your back taxes defense advisor.
Reasons Why Back Taxes Accumulate

How Can You Resolve Back Taxes?
The easiest and the quickest way to resolve back taxes is to file and pay your taxes when they are due. If you file and/or pay late, you need to pay the tax amount that is due, along with the penalties and interest that has been charged. You can also apply to have penalties removed. See the “free advice’ tab on this site for more information. You may seek a levy release of your joint bank statements.
When Can I Request A Payment Plan From The IRS?
You can generally request for a payment plan from the IRS, if you can not pay the back taxes in full. Before you request a payment plan, you should first calculate how much money you will be able to pay to the IRS every month. Please see the “free advice” tab on this site for details on what you must do before notifying the IRS to make arrangements for a settlement.

IRS Back Tax Facts & Beliefs
- People feel that if they didn’t hear from the IRS in years, everything is O.K. In fact, the 10 year statue of limitations on collections only starts when a return is filed. We have clients still paying on years from the early 1990′s. Filing a bankruptcy or offer in compromise and leaving the country can each extend the 10 year period. The period doesn’t even start till the IRS assesses the tax! So the time period may not be up yet! The good news is that we can get a record of account showing the history of each year, WITHOUT alerting the collection division.
- All letters from IRS need to be resolved immediately.
- Contact from the Criminal Investigation Division requires response from a CPA or an Attorney. An Attorney is only needed when you know that they are gathering criminal evidence against you. Early in 2011, I convinced Criminal Investigators to drop their case on two separate taxpayers, after one hour on the phone.
