Our Services

Tax Resolution and Tax Preparation

Offer in Compromise (OIC)

If the IRS believes there is little chance of recovering the full amount you owe, or that doing so would create a financial hardship for you, CLAW Tax Group can negotiate an Offer in Compromise with the IRS that would allow you to settle your tax debt for considerably less.

Installment Agreements (IA) or Partial Pay

If you can pay the full amount of taxes you owe, just not right now or not all at once, CLAW Tax Group can negotiate an IRS payment plan to give you more time to pay. A long-term payment plan, also known an Installment Agreement, or a Partial Pay Installment Agreement can be better than an Offer in Compromise.

Currently Not Collectible Status (CNC)

If you can barely afford to pay your basic living expenses, much less your tax debt, CLAW Tax Group can petition the IRS to grant you a Currently Not Collectible status. With a CNC status, the IRS will agree to cease all collection action for a set period of time or indefinitely.

Penalty Abatement

If you have missed tax payments or filing deadlines due to uncontrollable circumstances, such as a death, serious illness or natural disaster, CLAW Tax Group can work to establish reasonable cause with the IRS to waive penalties for failure to pay or failure to file.

Tax Liens

When you fail to file your tax returns on time or pay your tax debt when it’s due, the IRS can seize your assets by enforcing a federal tax lien. If the IRS has filed a federal tax lien, CLAW Tax Group will fight to protect your real estate and other property through a lien release, withdrawal, subordination or discharge.

Bank Levies

If you let your outstanding tax debt go unpaid for too long, the IRS can seize your bank account. When the IRS contacts your bank to establish the levy, the bank immediately freezes your accounts and then turns over your assets to the IRS after 21 days. Let CLAW Tax Group negotiate with the IRS to release the bank levy and reclaim your assets.

Withholding Lock Release

If the IRS determines that too little federal withholding tax is being taken from your paycheck, they will direct your employer to withhold more and “lock in” that higher rate for at least three years. If a withholding lock has put a stranglehold on your paycheck, CLAW Tax Group will work to release the lock and make sure you get the hard-earned paycheck you deserve.

Filing Taxes & Back Taxes

Take the stress out of tax season–plus mitigate the fear and risk of getting audited–with professional tax preparation services from CLAW Tax Group. If you live in dread of unfiled tax returns from previous years, we’ll help you file your delinquent returns to get you caught up and compliant with the IRS.

Statute of Limitation Disputes

By law, the IRS has 10 years from the date of assessment to collect your tax debt. When you’re getting close to your Collection Statute Expiration Date (CSED), the IRS may suddenly become interested in offering you an OIC or other deal, which can actually extend their 10-year collection window. CLAW Tax Group will watch your back to ensure the IRS collection period ends when it should.

Injured & Innocent Spouse Relief

If you are divorced and believe you are not responsible for a tax liability your former spouse incorrectly reported without your knowledge, CLAW Tax Group can seek innocent spouse relief for you. If you filed jointly with your current spouse and the IRS is applying your share of a tax refund to your spouse’s past-due federal debts, CLAW Tax Group will fight to get your share of refund released to you.

Exam & Audit Defense

Tax attorneys, CPAs and the Enrolled Agents at CLAW Tax Group are legally authorized to represent you before the IRS during a tax audit or examination. Regardless of what triggered your audit notification, CLAW Tax Group will work with you to develop a defense strategy and then stand before the IRS for you.

Process & Appeal Hearings

You must act within 30 days to file a Collection Due Process (CDP) hearing request when you receive an IRS Notice of Intent to Levy or Notice of Federal Tax Lien. Likewise, you must work quickly to file an appeal if you believe the IRS is wrongly taking action against you or for the wrong amount. In either situation, CLAW Tax Group will fight for your rights, representing you in all IRS hearings.

The IRS levied my bank account and my wages. In one day the levy was lifted. We have a very busy life and Jon was the most patient man I know. He worked so hard for us. He took all the stress out of our life as he assured us things would be okay and would get resolved in time. The Irs was not as prompt as we would have likes but the wait was worth it. Our 100,000.00+ tax debt was settled for 1,000.00. I owe my sanity and love of life again to Jon.

The IRS was seizing my accounts…Jon Call immediately got all motions by the IRS stopped and proceeded to work on a fair settlement. But the IRS proved to be unfair, unforgiving and demanded payment in full in six figure range. But that didn’t end Jon’s effort. He was able to stave off any further seizure until…we could submit a new offer based on my current income. This time, although difficult, Jon prevailed and obtained an offer that I was able to accept and have since made a final payment. I am impressed that Jon continued the fight…He has my wholehearted recommendation to be your tax counselor.

A tax lien on my credit report was hindering prospective employers and qualifying for a home loan. Within 6 months the IRS accepted an offer of Compromise and 2 months later the Tax Lien was removed from my credit report! I am so grateful to Jon Call and his team for working on my behalf to put this Tax problem to rest and now I am able to qualify for a new home and work with a Company that fits me perfectly. Thank you for your hard work Jon and Team.

Is it possible to prevent the IRS from filing a tax lien?

Once the IRS has issued a Notice of Intent to file a federal tax lien, very little can be done to prevent the IRS from filing the lien. However, CLAW Tax Group can help you evaluate ways to release the federal tax lien after it has been filed at the local courthouse.

Is it possible to prevent the IRS from levying my bank account or garnishing my wages?
Yes, there are several ways to stop the IRS from seizing your income and assets. Contact CLAW Tax Group immediately and ask to discuss possible collection hold strategies in your free consultation.
What’s the average settlement amount in an Offer in Compromise?
Over the last decade, our average OIC settlement has been right around $1,000. Some settlements may be as low as $100, while others are much more. Most of our clients are able to pay off their settlement with the IRS in five months or less, but the IRS allows up to 24 months to pay an Offer in Compromise.
