Owing money to the IRS can be a lonely, unforgiving place to be in. With almost limitless resources, the Federal Government is an unrelenting opponent and facing them on your own makes David versus Goliath look like a fair fight. It’s no wonder that the magnitude of owing money to the IRS can stretch even the most resilient of us into an unbearable world of spiraling stress
Owing money is a stressful enough predicament to find yourself in; when it’s the IRS you owe, everything becomes far more magnified. The IRS’s reach and power comes with a range of penalties and conditions that, without the proper advice and guidance, can leave you devastated both emotionally and financially. It’s these draconian measures that really pile on the pressure and turn your debt into a burden that is inescapable
Dealing with this level of stress is completely unsustainable; aside from the impact on your health, stress clouds our judgment and always leads to poor decisions – when you’re already at the edge, one bad decision can be catastrophic.
As we said previously, the IRS has far-reaching powers. When you owe them money they are not going to work on a resolution that suits you, in fact, quite the opposite.
Wage garnishments are a favorite collection tactic of the IRS, often leaving people barely able to support themselves – taking the 2017 IRS figures, a single parent with two children who file as head of a household can have their wages cut back to $413.46 per week. So if you earn $1,000 per week, the IRS takes $586.54 of it, and if you earn $2,000 per week, it can take $1,586.54 – until your debt is cleared.
As well as seizing property and assets another tool in the IRS arsenal just became far more serious for American taxpayers. Last year saw the approval of private debt collection agencies, many of which have been accused of overly aggressive tactics and forcing people into repayment plans they simply can’t afford. These private companies not only charge the IRS for their service but also get to keep 25% of what they recover, hugely incentivizing them to push for the highest repayment plans.
