IRS Back Taxes and Credit Card Debt


I don't carry cash anymore.  I use my credit card or debit card, and sometimes it gets me into trouble.  I'm not alone in this.  A lot of my clients over the years have been in credit card debt along with the IRS and state back taxes.  It's something we commonly see at Fresh Start Tax Relief. 

Credit card debt is unsecured debt.  IRS and state back tax debts are secured debts.  Once a tax lien is filed and made public, the IRS or state has a lien position and right to assets.  Read more about liens here.  Because of this, the back tax debt and other secured debts should get the more attention than unsecured debts when making plans to resolve your total liabilities.  To put it plainly, your unsecured credit card debt will not threaten your home.  Your IRS back tax debt could.

There are a lot of different things that you should be aware of when resolving your back tax debt.  Many people may resolve their tax debt without any help whatsoever.  But few of them take all the steps necessary to attain the best outcome for their specific situation.  When you hire Fresh Start Tax Relief to help you resolve your taxes, we'll let you in on the little industry secrets that can get you the best resolutions and reductions for your specific needs. 

Here's a quick tip from M&M Financial about credit card debt.

IRS back tax debts can often be simple to resolve if you have the right guidance.  The hardest part is getting started.  Contact Fresh Start Tax Relief today at 866-937-5079 to find out how we can help you resolve your tax debt.
