Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions encourages delinquent taxpayers to use Hurricane Harvey as an opportunity to get right with the IRS suggesting the IRS may be more lenient due to the natural disaster.
Houston, TX – October 2, 2017 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new article on his website entitled “If Harvey Washed Away Years of Unfiled Tax Return Info.” Mr. Fowler appeals to those taxpayers who have not filed their taxes in several years in a desire to help them get on the right side with the IRS.
Fowler writes, “Hurricane Harvey has been devastating for many Texans.” He continues adding, “It could prove to be even more devastating if you haven’t filed your income tax returns in several years and you lost your important papers during the storm. Even if Harvey wiped out your important papers, your tax filing delinquency will not be forgotten by the IRS.”
“If you find yourself in this position,” says Fowler, “don’t despair. Use this as an opportunity to work from a clean slate and get right with the IRS.” He adds, “Even if you’ve been down on your luck, this is a perfect time to make a fresh start.”
According to Fowler, “With the right attitude and representation the IRS may even be willing to be a little more lenient with you after the chaos left in Harvey’s wake.” He continues adding, “The IRS will understand that this is not one of those “the dog at my homework” kind of excuse. Besides, they have already granted filing extensions for individuals and businesses alike, which you can read about in my latest blog IRS Has A Heart For Hurricane Harvey Victims. “
Fowler states, “No matter what your circumstances before Harvey hit, you can make things better.” He emphasizes, “Filing taxes is a law. To avoid civil and/or criminal charges, you must file your tax return, even if you file late or cannot pay the taxes you owe. Now, more than ever, in the aftermath of this historical storm, if you’ve failed to file past returns, you should seek the assistance of a reputable tax professional and do everything you can to get on the right side of the IRS.” Fowler knows it bears repeating, “ even if you can’t pay the taxes you owe.” Fowler also reminds readers that damages from natural disasters is tax deductible
