Is Tax Planning Worth it?

At Donovan Sullivan & Ryan, our CPAs can formulate your customized tax strategy. We can ensure that your tax plan aligns with your company's financial objectives.

Quarterly Taxes

Your company's structure dictates how you file your taxes. Partnerships and sole proprietorships both file their tax returns on an annual basis. Through the form 1120, corporations file their taxes yearly.

Quarterly taxes apply to business owners whose salary is not subject to withholdings. Declaring your quarterly taxes involves submitting the Form 1040-ES. Our CPAs can study the structure of your business and advise you appropriately.


Payroll Taxes

The law requires business owners to submit state and federal payroll taxes. Payroll taxes are wages on all employee wages. Payroll taxes include social security and Medicare deductions plus FICA taxes. Donovan Sullivan & Ryan has years of experience preparing payroll taxes for businesses. We can customize a strategy that will help your business cut costs and remain compliant.


Tax Resolution

Tax resolution involves all attempts to assist in clearing a tax debt. No one is exempt from tax issues. Sometimes, these issues can arise out of no fault of your own. You must have a reliable tax partner to help you resolve these tax issues. Tax resolution involves IRS payment plans, offer in compromise, innocent spouse relief, penalty abatement, and more. Tax laws are always changing. Some of the common reasons why you may find yourself needing tax resolution services include:

Inexperience: Keeping up with tax laws can be daunting. Defaults and missed deadlines can attract penalties.


A Mistake Made by Your Spouse: Married couples can file taxes together. A mistake made by your spouse during filing could land you in trouble.


Extra Income: When you sell an asset, there is more revenue coming in - consequently, a larger tax bill.


Life Changes: As your kids grow up and move out, the number of dependents reduces.

There are different avenues for tax resolution that are available for individuals. These include IRS installment agreements, penalty abatement, innocent spouse programs, and the IRS offer in compromise.

IRS Installment Agreements

The IRS installment agreements are a set of payment plans that aim at tax resolution. There are four types of payment plans available to you.

  • The Partial Payment Plan: This installment agreement will ensure that you pay only part of your total tax bill. To qualify for the partial payment plan, you need to provide evidence of financial strain.
  • The Streamlined Installment Agreement: Here, you are to pay your total tax debt in 72 months through equal installments. If you owe a total of $7,200, your monthly payment will be $100 each for 72 months.
  • The Tiered Agreement: Instead of paying equal monthly installments, your monthly obligations may increase at some point. This plan is advantageous when you are servicing a loan. As soon as you complete paying your loan, your monthly installment can increase.
  • The Full Pay Agreement: If you are unable to settle your tax debt within 72 months, the IRS will let you into this program. Here, you pay your full tax debt over an extended period (over 72 months).

Offer in Compromise

It sounds like a great deal, but not everyone can qualify for this "Penny to the dollar" offer. The IRS will let you make them an offer. This offer has to be the most realistic amount that they can recover from you. We can help you evaluate your situation and find out if you qualify for this option.

Innocent Spouse Relief

American tax laws allow couples to file their returns together. Omitting or withholding information from the IRS can prove costly. When these errors are your spouse's mistakes, the innocent spouse relief program applies.

Penalty Abatement

You may find yourself in debt to the IRS through no fault on your part. In such a situation, you can qualify for penalty abatement. In this program, the IRS will remove the penalties.

Resolving IRS Tax Liens

A release involves resolving a tax lien to the point of completion. After the release, the government withdraws its rights to your property. You are free to sell the asset or use it to secure a loan. However, the lien remains as a permanent record in your credit report. There are three ways to release your tax liens:

  1. Direct Debit Installment Agreement: These are a series of payment plans. They include automatic withdrawal of money from your bank (monthly garnishments).
  2. Malpractice on the Side of the IRS: If you can prove malpractice on the side of the IRS, the tax body will have to release your tax lien.
  3. Expiration of the Statute of Limitation: If the IRS fails to resolve your tax debt within the deadline, the lien expires.

Filing For Bankruptcy

When you face a tax lien, you are probably worried about losing your hard-earned assets. Our dedicated team of tax experts and CPAs can help you navigate through your tax troubles. Filing for bankruptcy will not provide a resolution if the tax lien is present before you file.

Bankruptcy may stop the IRS from collecting back taxes but not on a lien. Bankruptcy also discharges any penalties or interests associated with your back taxes. We will review your options to resolve debt problems to the IRS.
