Our office represents clients with the following legal needs:
1) Bankruptcy, both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 and Chapter 11, in order to obtain a financial fresh start and to protect property and particularly homes from mortgage foreclosure. A Chapter 13 case may be the only way that many homeowners can save their homes from foreclosure;
2) IRS tax problem resolution. We help people with IRS tax debts, either by assisting clients with installment agreements or by proposing Offers in Compromise in which we can reduce the overall amount of tax debt. If taxpayers have been threatened with levies or wage garnishments, then we can represent clients in Collections Due Process hearings to stop the proposed levy or garnishment. We represent businesses who have fallen behind with payroll taxes. We represent individuals and businesses who are behind on tax return filing as well. Finally, we can examine whether certain clients can wipe out their IRS income tax debts by filing a bankruptcy case.
My mom who suffers from early stages of dementia has not filed her tax returns for several years. While I don’t believe she owes taxes and is more than likely due a refund for each missing year, I’m looking for an attorney who can draft a POA so that I may answer questions on her behalf, help gather missing tax documentation, and begin the process of filing the back taxes.
Yes I can help you with that. If she is entitled to refunds, then you should definitely file the returns because after 3 years, you lose out on the right to refunds. Right now, she can still receive her 2019, 2020 and 2021 refunds if she files. But call my office and I can assist you with a power of attorney. Thanks, Shawn Wright
