Did you make any mistakes when you were filing your taxes this year? You may owe the IRS money, or have unfiled years or back taxes. Any of these reasons could prohibit you from receiving your tax return.

The IRS Fresh Start Program offers real relief to taxpayers who owe thousands in back taxes. In some cases, the IRS has forgiven 95% of back taxes owed. Let our tax professionals attempt to help you alleviate your tax-related issues if they occur.

Listing A Wrong Bank Account Number

In our day and age, the majority of taxpayers receive their refunds directly through direct deposit. You’ll need to provide both your routing and account number correctly because if the account numbers are somehow inputted incorrectly, the IRS will not be able to send the funds directly to you via direct deposit. This way, there may be a higher chance that you won’t get your refund at all.

You Filed A Paper Return

There’s nothing wrong with filing your taxes by mail but receiving your tax return will take about 8 weeks, as opposed to e-filing your taxes which in this case can expedite the process and can maybe be received within 3 weeks. To avoid refund delays, the IRS suggests and urges taxpayers to electronically file their taxes. Issuing a paper tax return just takes a lot longer than receiving the tax refund through direct deposit.

You Owe The IRS Money

If you owe the IRS money, the government may deduct a portion or perhaps all of your tax refunds to cover the amount. If your refund is greater than what you owe, you’ll get the difference via direct deposit or a paper check in the mail, although it may probably take a while to receive.

Even if you don’t owe the IRS any money, the agency has the right to keep your tax refund if you owe other state or federal debts.

Resolve Your Tax Bills

Some taxpayers still haven’t received their tax returns because there may be unpaid back taxes or have unfiled years that they may or may not be aware of. For taxpayers who may have difficulty paying off an excessive amount of tax debt, there’s a new and improved relief program that consolidates many major relief programs into a one-size-fits-all assistance program; The IRS Fresh Start Program.
