We Help Clients Understand Their Income Taxes and Fix Their Problems
Federal and Ohio tax law is incredibly complicated. Too frequently, honest, hard-working Middletown residents make mistakes on their tax filings. Unfortunately, the IRS doesn’t care if your errors weren’t intentional — it will aggressively demand payment of unpaid taxes and charge you incredibly high fees and penalties.
While you might be embarrassed or afraid, you should never ignore a tax issue. Avoiding the IRS will only make matters worse. Instead, you should contact an experienced Middletown tax attorney for assistance. Our tax lawyers can help you regain control, rebuild, and resolve your tax dispute with the state or federal government.

What Is the Fresh Start Program?
You might have heard of the IRS’ Fresh Start Program, but do you know what it is? Created in 2011, the Fresh Start Program acknowledges that the financial downturn put a lot of Ohio families in a difficult position. It helps people with back taxes by doing the following:
- Letting them avoid tax liens
- Streamlining the IRS’ installment plan process
- Expanding the IRS’ offer in compromise program and making it easier to navigate
While the Fresh Start Program reduced certain tax penalties for a period of time, those provisions have now expired.
If you have unpaid income taxes and are overwhelmed with tax liens and levies, contact a Middletown tax attorney for more information about the Fresh Start Program. We can help you assess your eligibility and determine whether an offer in compromise or installment program can help you fix your IRS problems.
Does the Ohio Department of Taxation Negotiate Back Taxes?
Like the IRS, the Ohio Department of Taxation offers tax relief options. If you believe the state’s tax assessment is incorrect, you can appeal its determination. While you can informally request a reassessment, it’s typically in your best interest to file a written appeal with the help of a Middletown tax attorney.
You also might be eligible for an Ohio offer in compromise if you can prove:
- Economic hardship
- Doubt of collectability
- You would likely receive a tax refund (under certain circumstances)
Getting an Ohio offer in compromise involves filing paperwork, financial disclosures, and other information with the Attorney General and that demonstrates your eligibility. For example, you cannot request an offer in compromise if you have filed a tax appeal or a bankruptcy.
If you would like more information about Ohio offers in compromise and other tax relief options, contact Middletown tax lawyer David Andrade. We will listen to your story, answer your questions, and help you understand your tax relief options.
