The income tax is the most common tax and the largest source of revenue the federal government and many states.  Income from whatever source derived is subject to tax unless specifically excluded by a provision in the law.  If you sell property, you may owe income tax on any gain from the sale.  The income tax owed as a result of selling property is called capital gains tax.  If you owe money to a lender and it cancels or forgives a portion of the debt, you may be required to report the cancelled debt as taxable income.  The estate tax is a tax assessed on a person’s wealth at the time of their death.  The gift tax is a tax on the transfer of wealth during one's lifetime.

Tax Collections Defense
Owing money to the IRS or local tax authorities creates fear and worry for many taxpayers.  If you have unfiled tax returns or unpaid taxes, you may be receiving collection notices in the mail. The tax collectors have a range of collection devices at their disposal including: asset levies and seizures, garnishment of wages or social security, and tax liens on property you own. In many cases, penalties and interest accumulate in addition to the tax owed. However, the penalties can be reduced or eliminated if you can establish a reasonable cause for not paying your taxes in full and on time. 

Christopher S. Robins, Attorney and CPA, is experienced in tax collection matters and works with the client and tax authorities to come to an effective resolution. The tax authorities have abundant resources at their disposal to collect amounts they believe you owe.  Having an experienced tax professional on your side is important to give you the best opportunity for eliminating your tax burden and helping you move forward.  With knowledge of the tax laws and proper planning, you can reduce or minimize your tax burden.
