3 Secrets the IRS Doesn’t Want You To Know

If you’re currently facing tax problems, IRS Hostage Negotiators will put you back on track with these insider secrets to tax relief.

How can you get a leg up on back taxes and delinquent tax returns so that you can avoid severe IRS penalties  – and get a fresh start?  After years of record deficits — and during a year as crazy as 2020 has been, the government is more eager than ever to get every dollar of back taxes and IRS penalties from delinquent taxpayers. 

If you find yourself owing, here are three little secrets the IRS hopes you never see. 


The IRS has over 148 different types of penalties they can hit you with. Even worse, the IRS can also charge interest and additional penalties on top of the original penalty. Penalties can be such a high percentage of the total amount owed to the IRS, it may shock you to know you can request the IRS reduce all penalties to ZERO.

Yep. IRS penalties can often be reduced to ZERO. But what’s the catch? Well, you have to have REASONABLE CAUSE.  What makes up REASONABLE CAUSE you ask?  Well, in our experience in negotiations with the IRS, anything may qualify as long as it’s reasonable.

IRS Hostage Negotiators has had the IRS abate penalties for medical reasons, bad accountants, and ignorance of the tax laws, ex-spouses, helping to provide care for a loved one, military call-ups, fires, floods, alcoholism, drug abuse, death, and even for relying on IRS advice.




Many people don’t realize the IRS charges a penalty of up to 25% just for filing your tax return late. That’s right; you will get hit with an additional 25% of what you owe if you miss the deadline for filing individual tax returns. It’s even worse for payroll tax returns.

What most people don’t know is that you can file ANY tax return on time and AVOID THE 25% penalty even if you don’t send in the money that is owed on the return. We see so many people who could have saved THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on penalties if they just knew this one thing. So in the future no matter what is going on in your life, file all tax returns on time even if you don’t send in the money owed with the return.

Yes, of course, you’ll get an ugly letter from the IRS for not sending in the money owed but, so what? You will have avoided a 25% penalty.


Knowing your taxpayer rights gives you leverage when resolving your IRS problems. Instead of feeling powerless when up against potentially crushing back taxes and IRS penalties, having a qualified and experienced CPA, Enrolled Agent, or tax attorney that is also a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist on your side is the best way to understand all the options available to you for permanently solving your tax troubles.
