When a taxpayer receives a collection notice from the IRS, they often panic and don'tknow where to turn for a solution. Some taxpayers choose to bury their heads in the sandand hope that the problem will magically disappear. Others assume that they are going tojail, and are scared to respond. In most circumstances, neither does it go away nor does thetaxpayer go to jail. It is important for the Taxpayer to meet the situation head on by taking the following steps: 1) File a Tax return for the year(s) in question . The returns will either be filed by theTaxpayer or by the IRS themselves.

Rancho Del Oro Condos, Oceanside CAA few weeks ago I went on a field trip, with my daughter, to San Luis Rey Mission, in Oceanside. San Luis Rey Mission is located at the very North end of Rancho Del Oro Road, and the 76 freeway. This is an iconic landmark for North County San Diego. I was happy to have the chance to check it out. And afterward, I did a quick drive through of Rancho Del Oro Condos, nearby. The closest properties near the San Luis Rey Mission are actually called MISSION POINT TOWNHOMES. Mission Point Townhomes are located caddy-corner to the mission. Mission Point Townhomes offer a cool MISSION STYLE lifestyle, with comm pool and cool architecture, see the round windows?
