D. Michael Bartholomew, PC, located at 3212 13th Ave. N. in Texas City, offers individuals and business tax, accounting, payroll and consulting services tailored to their individual needs. When we meet with a new client for the first time, we try to establish exactly what their needs are so we can design our services to meet those needs. Not everyone that comes in needs the same services, so we don’t try to sell them on us providing a service that they don’t need.
One of the services we provide is the opportunity for taxpayer’s to settle their IRS debts for substantially less than what they currently owe. The minimum amount the IRS will accept to settle a debt is based on a formula using the taxpayer’s available assets less any amounts they owe on those assets and their income after deducting certain expenses. It is a very structured program, not the negotiated settlement process portrayed in TV commercials, Bartholomew says.
Two of the largest factors that affect the amount of an offer the IRS will accept are the amount of equity in a taxpayer’s home and their income. Because of the poor economic conditions, the income for many taxpayers has declined as well as the equity in their homes, making it an excellent time to submit an offer, Bartholomew says. With over 10 years of experience in guiding offers through, his office gives taxpayers a good idea of their chances of getting the IRS to accept an offer free of charge.
In addition to IRS representation services, Bartholomew’s office provides complete accounting, payroll and tax preparation services to clients of all sizes. As the saying goes,” Talk is cheap”, he doesn’t charge clients for consultations. After all I would rather them be talking to me than someone else, he says.
