Back Tax Professionals: Who Should You Choose?

Back tax problems can be resolvedWhen you have a back tax problem, you are nervous, stressed, and above all scared of getting taken advantage of by either the IRS or the back tax professional you trusted to help. This page doesn't tell you which professional is better but only explains the benefits of each licensed back tax expert. This information will help you make an educated decision when choosing who is going to represent you with your back tax debt problem.

To begin, you should ask yourself these four questions.

  1. Can I pay my back tax debt in one lump sum?
    If your answer is yes, then you should pay your back tax debt immediately but if you are unable to pay the back tax you owe in full, you will need to explore tax debt resolution programs the IRS offers.

  2. Do I understand the forms and/or applications I need to complete the resolution process?
    Most likely your answer to this question will be no because the US tax code is so complicated that even the IRS is making many tax preparers complete more training.

  3. Do I need Professional IRS Help with my back tax issue?
    The answer to this question depends on many factors, including your back tax debt amount, compliance, resources, and what type of debt you have. Visit our IRS Help page to find out if you will need expert tax support.

  4. What type of tax professional will I need to resolve my back tax problems?
    You have identified that you will need professional assistance with you back tax problem, but which tax professional is the best option: tax attorney, enrolled agent, or a certified public accountant (CPA)?

Below, we discuss which tax professional will best resolve your back tax issue.

Tax Attorney

Attorneys have the ability to file a power of attorney in order to deal with your back tax issue on your behalf. They also specialize in tax law and are fully knowledgeable on the US tax code. However, what really makes a tax attorney a valuable asset is their skill of negotiation. For taxpayers who are facing tax fraud, tax evasion, or other criminal charges, a tax lawyer is a must. For intense negotiations or appealing IRS decisions, a tax attorney is beneficial to help resolve your back tax problems. Also, because tax attorneys are licensed by their state's bar association, any misconduct or fraud will be investigated. This reduces the risk of taxpayers being duped by fly-by-night companies for fear of possible disbarment.

Enrolled Agent (EA)

Enrolled agents are licensed by the US Treasury Department to represent taxpayers in negotiations with the IRS. Enrolled Agents are specifically trained in the current tax code, having to pass two examinations and/or work with the IRS for five or more years. Enrolled Agents have limited client privilege that isn't applicable in state tax matters, and they are required to retrain every three years throughout their career in order to keep up with a constantly changing tax code. They are also required to adhere to the Department of Treasury’s Circular 230 rules and regulations.

Certified Public Accountant (CPA)

The primary function of a CPA is accounting and auditing personal finances, although they have been known to work in the private sector as business consultants. CPAs are required to pass numerous state exams and are certified by their state's accounting association. Continuing education and ethics vary by state, but CPAs are required to renew a practicing license. CPAs can fulfill all the roles an EA or attorney can, but they may not be as experienced negotiating back tax settlements as the former two.

We have an extensive network of tax attorneys, enrolled agents, and CPAs that specialize in many different tax issues and are highly experienced in negotiating with the IRS for every back tax settlement the IRS offers. Whether you have a small, personal tax debt problem or a large, complicated business back tax issue, we have a dedicated staff who will match you with the right tax professional.
