They appear on late night television and on the internet promising to reduce your tax debt, stop garnishments, remove tax liens and settle your debt for pennies on the dollar. Oh, if only it were true. Pay a company a few thousand dollars and voila, your tax debt is reduced from $100,000 to $5,000. How’s that for a great return on investment!

There is some good news and bad news here

There is some good news and bad news here. The good news is that you are not alone. You are in the company of thousands of Americans who have, for whatever reason, failed to file returns for multiple years. The IRS refers to these taxpayers as chronic non-filers.

It is the same thing with tax debt.
