Kennedy’s approach to resolution emphasizes the notion that there is a solution to every tax problem. In some cases, clients are afraid that their tax issues will lead to jail time. Spending time behind bars is not usually the punishment for civil tax matters such as an outstanding balance or unfiled returns. However, some clients may feel as though they are being threatened with jail time if they are getting constant notices from the IRS or their state’s department. In most cases, clients won’t serve jail time unless they owe millions of dollars to the IRS. Kenney explains the conditions that could lead to incarceration and offers viable solutions to keep a client’s tax issues from getting to this point.
Clients who aren’t sure how they’re going to pay their taxes can also count on Kennedy for solutions. Depending on a client’s income, it can feel like paying off taxes will take a lifetime. Kennedy offers several options for addressing a client’s tax balance that is sometimes to large to pay. He can offer a settlement of the balance for less than the total amount of owed taxes. This agreement is called an Offer-In-Compromise, which is a tactic Kennedy is known for. He can also arrange for clients to make a partial payment agreement so the client can appeal to the court. Kennedy will also advise some clients to file bankruptcy as a way to pay state or federal taxes.
Kennedy also assists clients who are concerned that the IRS will take their cars, home, or property. Kennedy explains to clients how this tactic is a threat by the IRS to motivate individuals to pay their taxes, since the government has no desire for a citizen’s property and likely won’t utilize the property if it is seized.
