Suncoast Tax Solutions is a full-service tax resolution company helping clients to solve their tax problems.Most people voluntarily file their tax returns and pay their taxes. Most people explain it by saying they want to pay their fair share. Others file to get a refund, claim a credit or avoid breaking the law.There are times when normally law-abiding citizens fail to file. Why? We find that taxpayers do not file tax returns for one or more years for various reasons and the problem can become overwhelming. Missing all or a portion of their records, personal hardship and/or neglect are one of many reasons people fall behind in filing their taxes...

I represent taxpayers in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota as well as throughout the state of Florida who have federal and state tax issues. A federal tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt. The lien protects the government’s interest in all your property, including real estate, personal property and financial assets. A federal tax lien exists after:The IRS: Puts your balance due on the books (assesses your liability); Sends you a bill that explains how much you owe (Notice and Demand for Payment); and You:Neglect or refuse to fully pay the debt in time.The IRS files a public document, the Notice of Federal Tax Lien, to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property.How to Get Rid of a LienPaying...

I represent taxpayers in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota as well as throughout the state of Florida who have federal and state tax issues. An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you can't pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. The IRS will consider your unique set of facts and circumstances including your: Ability to pay; Income; Expenses; and Asset equity. The IRS will generally approve an offer in compromise when the amount offered represents the most they can expect to collect within a reasonable period of time. Be sure to explore all other payment options before submitting an offer in compromise. The offer in compromise program is not for everyone. If you hire a...

I represent taxpayers in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota as well as throughout the state of Florida who have federal and state tax issues. The IRS recently announced that it will resume issuing balance due notices to taxpayers. These notices were paused on May 9 due to COVID-19.Although the IRS continued to issue most agency notices, the balance due notices or the “500 series notices” were suspended temporarily because of a backlog of mail at the IRS due to COVID-19. The mail backlog is now caught up enough to account for the timely mailed payments. Some taxpayers may have already begun seeing in late October or early November, the updated 500 series notices with current issuance and payment dates.The 500 series includes three different types of notices that alert taxpayers about varyin...

I represent taxpayers in Sarasota and throughout Florida who have federal and state tax issues. I have recently seen an uptick in the number of people contacting me who have not filed tax returns, some for many years. In fact, the non-filer issue is a priority for the IRS and they recently announced that they will increase face-to-face visits to high-income taxpayers who have not filed tax returns for prior years in an effort to increase tax compliance.More importantly, it is worth noting that the willful failure to file a tax return is a federal tax crime under the Internal Revenue Code Section 7203.So, what can non-filers do, and how can we help them get their tax return issue resolved with the IRS? It depends on why they failed to file a return in the first place.If the failure to fi...

This is an update to a previous post I wrote about the upcoming road enhancements for a roundabout at Ashton Road and Honore Avenue.   Construction has finally commenced on the much anticipated Roundabout at Ashton Road and Honore Avenue which should alleviate congestion at what is now a 4-way stop intersection.  This is something that needed to be done due to the continued real estate growth the county is experiencing.  My family, along with others from ASHTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, SARASOTA MIDDLE and NEW GATE will undoubtedly experience delays in walking and driving our children to school.  However, once completed, this roundabout should allow for a more fluid driving experience not only during school drop off and pick-up, but in general.Below is a conceptual rendering of the roundabout ...
