1 Sure and Secure IRS Resolution Services Enrolled Agent - Representation What is an Enrolled Agent? An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service for audits, collections, and appeals. What does the term Enrolled Agent mean? Enrolled means to be licensed to practice by the federal government and Agent means authorized to appear in the place of the taxpayer at the IRS. Only Enrolled Agents, attorneys, and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS. The Enrolled Agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the U.S. Treasury Department. How does one become an Enrolled Agent? The license is earned in one of two ways: by passing three comprehensive examinations covering all aspects of the tax code, or by having worked at the IRS for five years in a position which regularly interpreted and applied the tax code and its regulations. All candidates are subjected to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS. How can an Enrolled Agent help me? Enrolled Agents advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any entities with tax-reporting requirements. Enrolled Agents expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers audited by the IRS. What are the differences between Enrolled Agents and other tax professionals? Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation. Enrolled Agents are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the U.S. government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states).

2 List of Services: Offer in Compromise: If you are looking for a way to settle IRS debt, Sure and Secure IRS Resolution Service is here to help you!! Offer in Compromise

3 Installment Agreements: Installment Agreements with the IRS allow taxpayers that cannot afford to full pay their back taxes the option to pay their back taxes through monthly payments. The guidelines regarding how the IRS decides payment amount and timeframe are based on: 1. Taxpayer compliance with past filings 2. Amount of time the IRS has left to collect the Tax Debt 3. The Installment agreement may pay all or part of the back tax owed Many times the IRS puts the taxpayer in an installment agreement they cannot afford, causing the taxpayer to have future tax problems. It is imperative to have an installment agreement that is affordable for the taxpayer. When an Installment Agreement has been reached, the IRS stops their collection efforts and refrains from issuing wage garnishments, bank levies, sending notices and making harassing phone calls. Consideration for receiving an Installment Agreement is that penalties and interest continue to accrue on the unpaid portion of back tax liability throughout the duration of an Installment Agreement. Additionally, depending on the circumstances, the IRS may file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien to protect their interest until the liability is paid in full. There are conditions that must be kept after the Installment Agreement is established such as compliance with future tax filings and payments. For those that cannot afford to full pay their back taxes immediately and do not qualify for an Offer in Compromise or a Currently Not Collectible status, an Installment Agreement may be the best alternative. Currently Not Collectible (CNC): The IRS will place a taxpayer s account on a Currently Not Collectible (CNC) status when they have decided that the IRS is presently unable to collect the taxes from the taxpayer by full payment, through an Installment Agreement or by way of an Offer in Compromise. When the taxpayer s account is placed on a CNC status, the IRS does not attempt collection activity against the taxpayer and the statute of limitations on the tax liabilities will continue to run. Generally, unless the taxpayer s financial situation changes, the account will remain on a CNC status until the tax liabilities expire. However, if the taxpayer s financial situation improves the account will be taken off of CNC status so that the IRS can collect the taxes through full payment or an Installment Agreement. When a taxpayer has a negative cash flow and has equity in assets that the taxpayer is dependent upon, the taxpayer could attempt to resolve their account by having their account placed on a CNC status depending on their circumstances. For CNC status, the underlying issue is that liquidation of a particular asset is either not feasible or would cause a financial hardship.

4 Wage Garnishment or Levy: If you are experiencing Wage Garnishment you are probably far along in the IRS collection process and require immediate help. The IRS can: 1. Destroy your credit 2. Seize your home 3. Levy your bank account 4. Take all future tax returns until debt is paid 5. Put you in jail IRS wage garnishment or levy can leave a single parent with one child only $288/ week to live! The IRS will only stop salary garnishment or wage levy once you take action to settle what you owe. The IRS generally only levies wages to force you to take action or after all other attempts to collect your back taxes have failed. Federal Direct knows how to stop Wage Garnishment and will fight for you. We WILL get YOU the results you deserve. Sure and Secure can help before the IRS takes your paycheck. The IRS will not stop until you negotiate a settlement. Our Tax Professionals are ready to help! IRS tax relief is within your reach. One of the more unpleasant methods the IRS uses to collect back taxes is to levy wages. Salary garnishment can lead to serious problems in your personal and financial life. If the IRS is taking money from your paycheck, they have you in the collections process already, and they have likely also filed a federal tax lien at this point. The bad news is that their collections efforts will get worse if you stand by and do nothing. Sure and Secure IRS Resolution Services ends IRS wage garnishment. Employers must comply with the IRS salary garnishment notices. Your payroll department cannot help with this problem and cannot supply relief. When the IRS levies your wages, they like to take most of the money, leaving little to survive on. If the correct steps are not taken, they will continue to garnish wages until the debt is paid in full. Sure and Secure can get you compliant and will fight to settle for less than you owe! Audit Representation: One of the most uncomfortable letters that you can get is a letter from the IRS indicating that your tax return is being audited. The letter may request additional documents regarding an entry or verification of entries on your tax return. When this happens, you are rarely able to just drop whatever you are doing and drive down to the IRS office, sit down the the IRS Representative, and ask for a waiver for your case. You may even receive a revised return stating that you owe additional tax. The fact is that you have thirty (30) days from the date the audit request is mailed or you have no recourse and you will owe the extra billed amount. Sure and Secure Filing will assis in preparing your response and then even represent you in a face-to-face meeting if needed, to not only plead your case, but negotiate on your behalf.

5 IRS Agent Help: The IRS assigns Collections Officers to collect back taxes. Their job is to collect the back taxes as fast as possible. To work Revenue Officers, it is important that they understand their rights. Revenue Officers have the authority to garnish wages, levy bank accounts, file Federal tax liens and seize assets. Revenue Officers must comply with all laws and regulations put into place by Congress. Generally, the IRS is prohibited from taking a taxpayer s income and assets, if such taking will result in an undue hardship to the taxpayer. The IRS is also barred from taking certain specified exempt assets. Additionally, Revenue Officers must conduct themselves in a professional manner and must provide taxpayers with reasonable time frames to respond to their requests. Unfortunately, not all Revenue Officers respect these limitations and sometimes conduct themselves in a discourteous manner and act without regard to the financial impact of their actions against taxpayers. Once retaining Sure and Secure, our power of attorney allows to negotiate on your behalf and get the Revenue Officer off your back and require them to deal directly with us. We utilize our IRS experience and Tax knowledge to identify the best solution for your situation and negotiate on your behalf. Amended Returns: Signing up with Sure and Secure IRS Resolution Services includes the option of preparing and filing amendments, utilizing all forms and schedules necessary to get the taxpayer compliant. Rejected Returns: As a rule, some twenty percent (20%) of all electronically-filed returns are rejected at least once. Sure and Secure IRS Resolution works to overcome the rejection of returns with the IRS. This includes the rejection of the return and denial of refunds stemming from incorrect information and the disqualification of dependents and other credits. This also allows a closer look at the return for gross errors and inaccuracy before it is filed. IRS Correspondence Interpretation and Response: Many times a client will receive a letter from the IRS after a tax return is filed. Commonly, this causes panic, alarm, confusion, and fear. Federal Direct will review any IRS correspondence your client receives, help them interpret the situation, and assist with a timely formatted response. This is commonly the most-utilized aspect of our Sure & Secure filing service. Remember, tax relief is in your reach! Sign up for Sure and Secure IRS Resolution Services today!!! Price! Value! Opportunity!
