We are Not the typical “Tax Resolution Firm”

Most other tax firms are part of a “cottage industry” of tax relief agencies whose primarily offering is an “Offer-in-Compromise.” This “administrative option takes forever to get processed, usually has a low acceptance rate, provides the government with a “road map” to your assets  and acts as a “tolling event,” substantially delaying the period before you can eliminate your tax claims in bankruptcy. We are different. We don’t offer you limited administrative options – we present the full spectrum of solutions – we fight for a real fresh start, one that addresses all of your debt.

Excellent job! These guys really helped me deal with the FL Dept of Revenue who was killing me with their inflated fees on top of fees and their mafia-style threats. Got the bill down to half and I still have my kneecaps.

As a small business owner finding a good tax attorney in today's world can be incredibly challenging, especially when the referrals from your friends don't pan out, or you pay an Attorney's fees, and don't receive the quality of work expected. There is nothing more devastating to a business. Therefore, I was on a quest, on the tiniest thread of hope, remembering someone from my past, who had helped my X- husband, and I remembered how extraordinary this attorney was. At that time, I wasn't a business owner, but a stay at home mom. Fast forward many years to the present, divorced and a business owner, I reached into my past out of desperation, searching for that caliber of support that I had witnessed back then. And how lucky for me that my thread of desperation led me to Matthew Sherman, a real super hero, who will rise to the challenge every time because he enjoys it! He not only did what he said he was going to do, and in a timely fashion, but the support and legal advice he and his team provided was par excellence! As a business owner you recognize superior work when you see it, and certainly when you receive it! Matthew and his legal firm saved me a ton of money! As a small business owner that means the world to me, because I can now fight the big fights and not lose my shirt. It's like finding the holy grail! I have been looking for a brilliant attorney to have my back and I've finally found one! It is crucial to the growth and sustainability of any business, especially in this post COVID era, with all the changes we are experiencing. I am beyond grateful to Matt Sherman and staff at the Tax Workout Group. Thank you for making a difference in my business and my life for that matter. I sleep well at night. :-D

We are the only bankruptcy firm focused on resolving tax claims using the bankruptcy process. Our clients hire us to ensure that they eliminate or otherwise reduce their tax claim(s) to the greatest extent possible. There are many bankruptcy lawyers, but we are the only bankruptcy law firm headed by tax lawyers. We do what matters most - focus on eliminating tax debt in bankruptcy - plain and simple! While most other bankruptcy law firms focus on bankruptcy and deal with the tax claims as an after-thought, we don't. We deal with the IRS and state taxing agencies in every one of our tax bankruptcy cases.

A “tax-motivated” bankruptcy filing is one which includes tax debt along with related interest and penalties. The tax debt can be any type of tax - income, sales, payroll, employment, or excise taxes. Our tax bankruptcy attorneys analyze every tax claim and examine its attributes to strategically eliminate or reduce the tax debt along with all other debt. A tax-motivated bankruptcy case is an effective weapon not only for eliminating IRS tax debt, but it can likewise discharge or eliminate state tax debt, medical bills, credit card bills and most other debt.

Our tax-bankruptcy attorneys are experts in IRS practice and procedure and the interrelationship between federal and state tax laws and the US Bankruptcy Code.

When Can Income Taxes Be Reduced or Eliminated?

In the case of income taxes, once the tax claim was incurred (based on the later of the due date or the extended due date of the tax return) more than three (3) years before the bankruptcy filing date and assessed more than 240 days beforehand, there is a strong likelihood that the tax is dischargeable in either a Chapter 7, 13 or 11 bankruptcy filing. However, this assumes that you filed a tax return (before the IRS has filed one for you) and if you filed late, more than two (2) years has passed since it was filed. In addition, these time periods may be impacted by a variety of events such as a prior bankruptcy, Offer-In-Compromise, an IRS CDP hearing (and related appeal), amended returns filings, audit adjustments and a few other events.

Note that even where a tax claim may not be fully dischargeable in Chapter 7, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding may allow you to eliminate the tax claim, or at the very least, satisfy it without the payment of penalties and interest.

In most cases, the type of tax involved is “income” taxes, but when a business is involved, there may be payroll, employment, sales, property, and excise taxes as well, all with a different set of rules that relate to the timing of events and transactions.

Our Tax Dischargeability Analysis is the cornerstone of each bankruptcy filing and essential for the proper treatment of the tax claims to file the best type of bankruptcy at the most advantageous time. In each case, our Tax Dischargeability Analysts perform a comprehensive Tax Dischargeability Analysis where we review and analyze each tax claim and all events related to that tax claim. This allows us to achieve the best possible result by filing the most appropriate type of bankruptcy at the optimal time to eliminate all tax claims, penalties, and interest, along with all other dischargeable debt.
