Q&A: After an audit , I owe almost $50 K in taxes . How long will the IRS give me to pay this?

Question by Asbms18: After an audit , I owe almost K in taxes . How long will the IRS give me to pay this?
Is there any truths to the advertisements, promising to just “pay pennies on the dollar”? Will bankruptcy eliminate tax debt?

Best answer:

Answer by Wayne Z
The “settle your taxes for less” firms are all scams. They charge you thousands of dollars in fees and, at the end of it all, you still owe the tax bill (plus more interest).

The IRS does have a process called an “Offer in Compromise” where you can settle your debts for less. However, the IRS rejects about 85% of offers. You have to be able to prove that you have minimal income and, even if you sold every thing you own, you couldn’t pay the tax bill.

Bankruptcy can sometimes eliminate tax debt however the debt must be at least 3 years old.

What Is A Debt Consolidation Loan

What Is A Debt Consolidation Loan

Article by Craig Thornburrow









Debt consolidation loans are an increasingly popular form of debt re-payment for those who find themselves unable to pay off even the minimum payments on credit cards every month.

What is Debt Consolidation?

Everyone knows what debt is; it’s the amount of bills that are left over at the end of every month after you’ve paid everything you can. For some of us, that number is a significant one. It seems that you will never be able to pay it off – especially as new bills add to it every month.

Debt consolidation is when you take all of these bills and add them together to create one big bill. This new, big bill is your consolidated debt. When you consolidate your debt, you will generally stop adding to the debt total with interest charges and, most likely, you will be able to negotiate a lower bill total with each individual creditor. They would rather get, for example, half of what you owe them than nothing at all. Debt consolidation benefits everyone involved.

What Is A Debt Consolidation Loan?

A debt consolidation loan is exactly what it sounds like – a loan that you take out to pay off the total of your consolidated debt. After you have combined all your debt into one sum total, negotiated with the creditors to lower that total and knock off the interest charges, you will come up with one monthly payment that makes sense. Sometimes, this monthly payment is still too large a chunk to handle, especially as costs associated with living continue to pile up everyday. The solution to this problem is a debt consolidation loan.

With a debt consolidation loan, you can pay off your entire debt with one big payment then create a smaller, more manageable payment plan with the company who gave you the loan. This loan payment will have interest charges built in and will most likely take much longer to pay off than if you simply paid off your consolidated debt. The benefit is that your monthly payment will be something that you will actually be able to pay rather than one more bill that will end up in the ‘unpaid’ pile each month.

Check out your options thoroughly before choosing a debt consolidation loan provider. Make sure you get the best rate possible. Just like a credit card, it’s important to check out the fine print before you sign up for any debt consolidation loan.
