Avoid tax liens by coming clean

lawyer in a lawyers library

When Atlanta residents encounter tough economic times, it can be difficult to find the funds to pay for basic expenses or to stay current on bills. For some, this means figuring how which payments can wait and which cannot and trying to prioritize and pay off the most urgent bills. Many people make the mistake of thinking that taxes are not a particularly urgent bill, believing what they have heard second hand or from a friend that the IRS is slow to react and may never notice a year of a missing income tax return.

That is more myth than truth, unfortunately, and even when it takes a few years, the IRS’s meticulous recordkeeping will eventually discover the omission and when they do, there may be serious consequences beyond simply paying back the taxes. 

Some people think that if they did not file for one year that it is easier to avoid detection by not filling for a second or third year in a row, and eventually the avoidance can snowball. Sometimes a notice that comes in the mail from the IRS will show a high amount that is due, but that will not include relevant deductions like mortgage interest or student loans. 

People who have fallen behind on their taxes for one reason or another do have some options, however, to get back on track and avoid serious penalties from the government. Like other creditors, the IRS will often work with taxpayers on a payment plan and schedule to make it easier to meet a tax obgliation. 

Without going through the proper process to settle a tax debt, borrowers could face asset reposession, wage garnishment, fines, or potentially time in jail.

They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

Sherard W.

I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
