Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Informs Readers About Expanded Relief Options The IRS Initiated To Help Taxpayers In This Upcoming Tax Season.
Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR shares an overview of the New IRS Taxpayer Relief Initiative To Help Taxpayers as COVID-19 Continues To Challenge The Entire Country.
Fairhope, AL, November 18, 2020: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR.com, recently published an article on his website entitled “COVID Continuation Inspires IRS To Expand Tax Resolution Options,” in which Mr. Willis provides a brief overview of the new initiative.
“Earlier this year,” writes Willis adding, “in fact right before tax season, when COVID-19 caused the entire country to shut down, the IRS knew right away that many taxpayers were going to have trouble meeting their tax obligations. They enacted the People First Initiative to help taxpayers.” Willis expounds, “Among other things, the tax filing deadline was moved to July 15th. Now, nearly one year later, COVID-19 is still at play. Many people are in worse situations than they were before. Thousands of businesses have had to shut their doors permanently. Millions of taxpayers have been unemployed since the beginning of this pandemic. Many who were once furloughed and hopeful they would be able to return to their jobs, are now officially unemployed, adding to the swelling population of people living without an income.”
“While providing momentary relief,” says Willis, “the one stimulus payment that was issued certainly could not sustain anyone who is unemployed, with or without a family, for long.” He continues, “Mortgages and rents cannot be paid. In far too many cases, families are finding it impossible to put food on the table. And as of this writing, there hasn’t been another stimulus package approved to help.”
As Willis points out, “In addition to the devastation caused by COVID-19, in our neck of the woods there are many who have lost their homes and belongings to the three hurricanes that decided to add to our collective trauma this year. So, I hope it comes as a bit of heartening good news to find out that the IRS is “committed to continue helping taxpayers wherever possible, including offering many options for those struggling to pay their tax bills.” https://www.irs.gov/about-irs/irs-offers-new-relief-options-to-help-taxpayers-affected-by-covid-19
Willis goes on to outline some of the ways the IRS is providing relief. He states, “The most important message the IRS has is the following: “If you have reasonable cause for failing to file, pay and deposit on time, you may qualify for penalty relief. Those reasons include natural disasters, inability to obtain records, death, serious illness, incapacitation or unavoidable absence affecting you or your immediate family. Not having enough money is generally not enough – on its own – to qualify.” He goes on to add, “However, and this is an important however, “the reasons for the lack of funds may meet reasonable cause criteria for abatement of the failure-to-pay penalty.”
