I'm hanging' on by a thread folks!

I've posted before that I'm having hard core tax problems, and I've received good advice. I've tried to follow that advice the best I could. But I can't seem to find an attorney in my area (I'm very rural) or even one in the next largest town (an hour away). The next big city for me is Jacksonville and thus far I've only found tax attorney's who specialize in taxation for corporate or commercial interests and they have no referal's to offer.

I've met w/ 2 CPA's certified to appear before the IRS and quite frankly I felt like I knew more about the issues than they did.

To top that off, my husband is gravely depressed. He is in full denial (of course) and he's "one bad day at work" away from a full meltdown. Although he knows what's going on with the IRS he refuses to talk to me about it and help in anyway. Equally, I am trying to shelter him from what's going on so as not to add anymore frustration. I am thus far completely alone in this and the last 8 months is wearing me down.

I am now up against a deadline that requires me to act no later than Jan 26th. We have been served with the LEVY/Lein Notice(s) and I'm quite confident they are about to act. My house is fully paid for and I've been told by (the tv tax ppl) that makes me an ideal candidate for LEVY.

If any of you know any resource here in Florida that works as a CPA or Attorney or Tax Professional in any form that I can contact please let me know.

My Contact via DP works or post it here. And if you guys would help me by keeping this bumped I would sure appreciate it.

Bumping to say that if you ever had a jury trial for taxes...

...and I was on that jury...

...it would be a NOT GUILTY decision from me.

Period.

I would NEVER convict ANYONE for income tax problems because I believe it is an immoral tax based on government thievery of our private property.

PLEASE let me on one of those juries.

I know this is a self bump...

I know this is a self bump... check my history of nearly 3 yrs, I rarely do that, maybe twice!

But you never know who's gonna be online and when it will catch just the right person.

I've followed every lead and emailed every contact I was given not only on here but in my personal contact dp mail. I've got no responce, and realize it might not be until Monday that I get a reply...

Just trying to catch the right fish at the right time here on the Paul!

If I seem desperate it's because I am! My marriage is falling apart over this, my son's future with college henges on me winning this battle... Let alone that The IRS may come in days to serve me with get out of your house papers..

BMWJIM's picture

letushope, The firm I used does not operate in Florida but,

quit looking locally in this endeavor. Search the Tampa, Orlando, Miami, big city areas. Find a large firm (lawyer/cpa) that specializes in this type of situation.

No matter what happens, you cannot survive without family. Your husband and son need to know what this is doing to you. It seems to me that you are carrying all the burden. One person can only carry so much.

A home is not a home without those you love. My heart goes out to you but I lived with the IRS HUNTING for me for 10 years. I had nothing and could show nothing. I lost one family because of it and I think of them constantly. My second family and I stuck together and attacked the problem proactivly. They showed me the power of love and understanding. We won, if you call settling a win.

Remember, only give EXACTLY what they ask for. Nothing else.

I wish I could be more helpful and more positive. Please sit with your son and husband and make a plan. Please don't carry this burden yourself. I will worry enough every day for you and your family. You can let that part of it go.

Take a long walk

with your husband, don't talk just walk together. Then take a long walk with your son, don't talk just walk together. You need to realize that the family unit is more important that a college education or saving the house.
Good luck, hang in there.

Just another unfortunate reminder

That even though we think we have assets and possessions it is not so.We are all just paying rent and when the money stops going where it is supposed to go we are without assets again.I am disgusted with the system as it stands.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

quiltingsando,

You strike me as a woman with amazing insight!

I wish that I could some day meet you in person!

letushope, listen to this advice. God bless.

I wanted to say thank you for

I wanted to say thank you for those who emailed me directly, some with very specific instructions, some with just warm words of thought and prayers. Thank you so much!

So far only one Florida lead, waiting for an email reply.

Did you see...

...my post below? It is difficult to help you in any meaningful way without more information. What specific notices have you received? Give us the Letter numbers or Notice numbers if you have them. What action are you required to take by Jan. 26th?

Help us to help you. What exactly is going on?

July 29th I received the

July 29th I received the Final Notice/Intent to Levy from 1058A for tax years 2001, 2003 & 2005. I contacted the Revenue Officer who hand delivered these to my door (creepy) I wasn't home but my son was. I complied with the deadlines he had given me on completing the returns, but did not pay. The 30 day window for filing for the CDP hearing has expired.

I got two more of the Final Notices 1058A for 4 more tax years and the deadline for filing for a CDP is Jan 30th, but I intend to either respond myself by the 26th or hopefully have a qualified representative by then.

Okay..

...thanks for that additional information. It is too bad you didn't request a CDPH for 2001, 2003, and 2005, but if you missed that deadline then you missed it. However you may still be able to get an "equivalent hearing" for those years if you request one.

In my opinion, you should be sure not to miss the current window of opportunity for requesting a CDPH for the other years. If your request is timely, it will at least suspend collections for those applicable years, and there is a chance they may also hold off on attempting to collect for those other years for which the deadline has already passed.

If you happen to agree with the IRS that you owe the money, but just do not have it, you can work out a payment plan to avoid their levies. However, if you disagree then you probably don't want to do that.

Like I said yesterday, I don't think you need to worry about them seizing your home. Whenever they do decide to take action, what they probably will do is send a fraudulent Notice of Levy (which is not a levy) to your company you work for, and probably your husband's too, and probably your bank. They hope to trick these parties into turning your money over to them, because that is the best they can do without filing a civil suit against you and obtaining an actual judgement.

However, the chances are that you are not among the class of persons who are subject to the levy power under which the IRS is threatening to act, that is the levy power codified at IRC 6331.

Please go to the following link and study it very carefully...

http://www.losthorizons.com/RegardingTheLevyPower.htm

and also...

http://www.losthorizons.com/comment/archives/ASorryButInstru...

...and consider notifying the IRS collections office whose address appears on your FNOITL's of your status, as well as anyone to whom they may send a Notice of Levy.

Also, if you have a significant sum of money in the bank, you may wish to consider withdrawing it over time and using money orders to pay your bills.

My only advice is go to

My only advice is go to losthorizons.com and also you may be best off by researching the laws and just representing yourself.

Check your email

... been there... done that...

No, wait... still doing "that". Do not let go of that 'thread' you are hanging on to.

Bump!

Just take one day at a time, and you will be fine.

Hang in there kid.

Just fight the fight. They are going to steal everything from us eventually anyway. Just keep your cool. worst case senario you lose everything but its only stuff. They can't steal our resolve.

Aphrodite?

Is your husband doing well?I really am hoping for good news.Good to see you back after your rest.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thanks for caring

He was taken to Yale New Haven for an angioplasty on Monday, it went perfectly and he was released Tuesday. Been resting at home, I took him out tonight for sushi and we went to the rv show to pick out a camper and start a new life! We're going to sell our house (godwilling) and hit the road, and homeschool our son along the way.
But yes, he's doing very well, he'll be better than before.
