What to Do If You Cannot Pay Your Taxes?!
I prepared a video, something I intend to do more of, discussing the first thing you need to understand if you cannot pay your taxes: get current. Current compliance is very important when dealing with the IRS (and Maine Revenue too) and in this video I lay out why you should worry less about what you owe and more about what you are doing now to get right with the IRS.
In this video, I discuss:
- Why paying your back taxes first is a pathway to more problems
- How getting started on paying next year’s taxes will smooth the way for resolving your back taxes
- Why it is foolish to not file your taxes on time, every time, even if you cannot PAY NOW!
