Avoiding The Irs Wrath

Please remember that prevention better than a cure. The axiom of an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure holds true with the IRS and the issuance of IRS bank levies and IRS wage garnishments. Levies and garnishments are strong arm aggressive collection tactics employed when the IRS believes that the delinquent tax payer is being uncooperative and non-responsive.

If you cannot pay all taxes owed when filling your return, submit IRS Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request. Form 9465 provides for an installment agreement. This permits you to pay back taxes owed to the IRS over a period of time while avoiding collection activity. The IRS installment agreement are generally accepted without question when certain conditions are met. Code section 6159(c) provides as follows: (c) In the case of a liability for tax of an individual under subtitle A, the Secretary shall enter into an agreement to accept the payment of such tax in installments if, as of the date the individual offers to enter into the agreement–

(1) the aggregate amount of such liability (determined without regard to interest, penalties, additions to the tax, and additional amounts) does not exceed $10,000,

(2) the taxpayer (and, if such liability relates to a joint return, the taxpayer’s spouse) has not, during any of the preceding 5 taxable years–(A) failed to file any return of tax imposed by subtitle A,(B) failed to pay any tax required to be shown on any such return, or(C) entered into an installment agreement under this section for payment of any tax imposed by subtitle A,

(3) the Secretary determines that the taxpayer is financially unable to pay such liability in full when due (and the taxpayer submits such information as the Secretary may require to make such determination),

(4) the agreement requires full payment of such liability within 3 years, and

(5) the taxpayer agrees to comply with the provisions of this title for the period such agreement is in effect.

The installment agreement plan should be acceptable for tax payers facing a first time tax delinquency under $10,000 that make reasonably aggressive monthly payments. The law also provides, at section (c)(3), that the IRS must determine that you are “financially unable to pay” the tax in full and on time. A financial statement, IRS Form 433-A reflects all income, expenses, assets and liabilities. IRS Form 433-A establishes your “disposable income.” The IRS equates disposable income to ability to pay

The IRS is precluded from collection activities such as bank levies or wage garnishments when an installment agreement is filed or during the pendency of negotiations of the agreement. Code section 6331(k)(2)(A). The IRS may revoke the agreement and undertake enforcement action after thirty days should the taxpayer default on the agreement.

The failure to file Form 9465 when filing a tax return without full payment may result in immediate collections. Th IRS will initially send a simple written notice reminding you you forgot to pay al of the taxes owed. This form letter will appear in five to eight weeks after the return is processed. The IRS asks for payment and calculates interest and penalties. Response and payment in conjunction with this correspondence avoids “further accumulations of interest and penalties.” Penalties and interest will continue to mount if one fails to pay the tax debt owed. The initial notice is not a notice of intent to levy as the requirements mandated by code section 6331(d)(4) are not satisfied. The final notice is marked “final notice” and provides your right to a due process hearing. The hearing is provided under code section 6330. This hearing shall occur before enforcement action may commence. Only the final notice effectuate the IRS’s enforcement rights under code section 6331(a).

All responses to IRS notices to collect back taxes or tax debt should be in writing and sent via certified mail with return receipt requested. Advise the IRS that you cannot pay the entrie IRS tax debt or tax liability in full and that you need an installment agreement. Include Form 9465 and advise on the form how much you can afford to pay on a monthly basis. Submission of the installment plan and submission of an offer in compromise will toll aggressive enforcement actions.

Advise the IRS as follows: “I do not have the income or assets to be able to pay the bill in full and enforcement action will cause an undue economic hardship by making it impossible for me to pay my living expenses.” Request an installment payment amount you calculated based on your actual income and expenses. The IRS will attempt to utilize their table for allowable expenses in your area. The IRS will request additional information via IRS Form 433-A if additional financial information is necessary or needed.

Excessive delays and failure to respond to the IRS will result in issuance of the final notice or notice of intent to levy. This notice requires immediate response. Absent immediate response, the IRS will initiate aggressive collection tactics. Contact the Tax payers advocate service or retain professional help. I provide help for reasonable payments that are generally easy to meet because I understand your situation.

Correspondence to the Taxpayer Advocate should include the final notice, the date that your received the final notice, and an explanation why you cannot endure enforcement. Include an installment agreement with this correspondence.


Uncollectible status may arise when a tax payer simply cannot pay and cannot meet a reasonable installment plan obligation. Uncollectible status results in a freeze of collections, but it also tolls your statute of limitations. Uncollectible status requires unemployment, health reasons, very low income, or a showing of undue financial hardship. Uncollectible status may be requested via IRS Form 9465. Line 11 reflects how much you can pay so put $0.00 “Zero” and advise at the bottom that you are “seeking uncollectible status.” Advise why you cannot make a payment due to your harsh financial circumstances.

Penalties and interest will continue to accrue even when the account is marked uncollectible due to financial hardship. Seek professional help to discuss options such as an Consider an Offer in Compromise, bankruptcy or other strategy to reduce or eliminate outstanding and mounting back tax obligation.

Wage and Bank Levies

Bank levies and wage garnishments are extremely difficult matters to handle, but there is recourse. A wage levy attaches to the next paycheck. All money beyond current tax withholdings and the minimum exemption amounts will be taken by the IRS. The IRS can take all money in your bank account[s]. Bank levies are governed by section 6332(c). Section 6332(c) mandates that a bank surrender your money to the IRS after 21 days. Your bank account is frozen in the interim of this process. You only have 21 days to act or that money is gone. NSF fees will accumulate and you will not be able to utilize your account or even get another account. The bank will charge an additional $ 100.00 fee for good measure. Bank levies are serious and difficult matters to handle. You should immediately consider consulting with a professional if your bank account has been levied.

Invest In Mutual Funds Or Bank Fixed Deposits

I have often seen people planning to Invest in bank Fixed Deposits rather than Equity related Mutual Funds inspite of the growing Indian Economy and rising stock market. Though the times are changing and people have started looking at Equity Investment schemes, but still its only the minority of people savings going into the equity market.

Indians are skeptic about investing in Equities. Reason behind so is lack of knowledge and general awareness of the benefits. One needs to understand that stock markets are the best way to benefit from a country which economy GDP is growing over 8.5% year on year. Stock market basically resembles a Nation’s financial condition which of India is going to get better n better.

Indian Money Is Way Too Conservative

Fact figures suggests that 48% of total American savings goes for investing in schemes related to equities. On the other hand the fact figure for Indian savings money routed to equities stands at a merely small total of just 2%. No wonder, both the Indian Government and leading Indian Stock Exchanges are always keen to generate interest and awareness within the common people indicating towards the benefit of investing in equities for the long term.

Its the lack of Financial Education which keeps Indian savings money away from the Equities, since they are not ever formally introduced to financial planning and Investing. Majority of people believes that small investors cannot earn money from stock market, which absolutely is just a myth and nothing more.

Indian Investors still prefers the traditional way of Investment like Fixed Deposits. In fact Fixed Deposits are so famous and traditional that, during daughters marriage, father often gifts Fixed Deposits!

What Is A Bank Fixed Deposit?

A fixed-income debt security issued by banks. A Fixed Deposit is like loaning the bank your money and in return, they pay you interest which is currently between 8-9.5% p.a.

At this interest rates your money will double approx in 7-8 years. Too less, too late? Read on

Why You Should Not Be Investing In Fixed Deposits?

The most unusual characteristic of a fixed deposit is that the funds cannot be withdrawn for a specified period of time which is usually 3 years since deposit for any reason.

Changes in the going interest rate may also rise to a point above and beyond the interest rate applied to existing deposits done with the banks. This means account holders are actually earning less interest with fixed deposits than with other types of products.

What is a Mutual Fund?

A Mutual Fund is a investment scheme maintained and run by professional fund managers working under the name of a Financial Institute or a Fund House. Money is being collected from different and many investors and then collectively put in a pool account from where the fund managers makes Buy and Sell trades according to there own group research and investment objectives.

Dalal Street people prefers you thinking that what they do with your money is some rocket science and you are absolutely not the right person to take your own financial decision so that they keep earning fat commissions for themselves you being entrusting them your hard earned money.

Though its a different case that of course you can also invest your money yourself with little bit of research and with the help of expert Indian stock advisory services like Winfromus which generates higher returns than the different Mutual Fund schemes.

But never the less, there are some real good fund managers out there too, doing what they are best at and most of the good names has been successfully generating 13-15% Compounded Annual Growth Returns (CAGR) since the past 5-6 years.

CAGR Projection over the next 3 years from Indian Stock Markets

Conservative projection suggests that the Indian markets can deliver CAGR of 15-18% over the next 3 years and optimistic like me expects 20% CAGR over the next 3 years with the right selected stocks and sectors.

20% CAGR is not just a dream, but it is also fundamentally backed by growing GDP, country’s financial condition and over all economical and business development which is on course and expected to grow at a descent pace.

Fixed Deposits Returns are Guaranteed, Mutual Funds Are Not – What about my money safety?

Well, for a matter of fact nobody can guarantee you returns while investing in equity via any possible way, since it involves risk. But theres a way to cut the risk virtually to Zero levels and still get benefited the most. The secret is Systematic Investment Planning (SIP).

Systematic Investment allows you to stay invested without worrying to time the markets or about the volatility we see in stock market. In fact SIP works out best when markets are volatile. The funda of systematic investing works on a simple formula invented by world’s most genius ever Albert Einstein – Power of Compounding.

While SIP, rupee cost averaging and compounding of returns/interest earned on principle over a period of time compounds together and puts significant impact on wealth creation over the long run and stock market being a cyclical asset, it is very likely that you will see a higher end where you may take profits and then go conservative.

Do you know how much money can be made on investment of just Rs 10,000/- per month at a CAGR of 20%? I have done the maths, here’s the result –

* Rs 10k/month Invested for 5 years at 20% CAGR to become 10 lacs
* Rs 10k/month Invested for 10 years at 20% CAGR to become 35 lacs
* Rs 10k/month Invested for 15 years at 20% CAGR to become 95 lacs
* Rs 10k/month Invested for 20 years at 20% CAGR to become 2.4 crore

Eventually In 25 years 10000/month @ 20% CAGR (compounded annual growth rate) to become 6.1 crores and in 30 years 10000/month @ 20% CAGR to become a whopping 15 crores. The longer you invest, the higher would get your returns.

Think Mature, Aim Higher, Plan and Set A Goal…

Fixed Deposits cannot generate the kind of returns stock markets will and theres no doubt about it. If you are young and want to Invest and grow your money big, equities are the way to go. Don’t be skeptic and look at the brighter side of investing in Stock Market, you don’t get such money making opportunity in a lifetime.

Returns of fixed deposits may not even beat Inflation rates, then whats the use of saving money in them and allowing money to sit idle to generate lesser returns on investment when a simple SIP in equities can do a better performance for your money? Think about it..

Happy Investing!!
