Tax Representation & IRS Help

Lothamer Tax Resolution has helped thousands of business owners and individuals in South Bend work out their tax problems with the IRS or the State of Indiana. Our attorneys, CPAs and enrolled agents can help you solve a variety of tax issues, including:

  • Have been contacted by the IRS or State of Indiana Treasury Department
  • You believe that you will be contacted by the IRS soon
  • Have wage garnishments
  • Tax liens and asset seizures
  • You can’t pay what you owe
  • Have a levy on your bank account
  • Have delinquent payroll taxes

Many non-filers from previous years could see immediate benefits including a tax refund from previous years as well as the ability to receive a stimulus check. At Lothamer, we provide a wide range of tax representation and settlement services that can provide immediate and long-term tax relief. Please call us at 877-472-0021 to find out which of these programs and services you may be eligible for:

Offer in Compromise

If you qualify for Indiana’s Offer in Compromise program, it can dramatically reduce the amount that you owe by allowing you to pay a lump sum to settle your overall tax burden. Individuals who file an Offer in Compromise on their own through the Taxpayer Advocate’s Office see an acceptance rate of less than 50%, while when we file for our clients our acceptance rate is over 90%.

IRS Fresh Start Program

By taking advantage of the IRS Fresh Start Program, you can enter into a favorable installment agreement. We can also assist you with excluding income producing assets and claim expenses that are reasonable and necessary living expenses. This program is available for both individuals and businesses.

Bank Levy & Wage Garnishment Release

At Lothamer, we have years of experience in stopping and releasing bank levies for businesses and Indiana residents. We know that you depend on a consistent source of income to pay bills and essential living expenses. We will help you take immediate action to negotiate a release.

Penalty & Interest Abatement

The IRS often pressures individuals to pay taxes on time by imposing tax penalties. However, if you experienced serious circumstances that kept you from filing or paying taxes due, a Penalty Abatement may help reduce your total taxes due to the IRS.

Installment Agreement

Requesting an installment agreement with the IRS is not always a simple and easy task. There are multiple types of IRS Installment Agreements, and eligibility is determined by many factors including your tax debt and your collectability status. For those who are unable to pay upfront tax liabilities in full, establishing an installment agreement can provide immediate tax relief.

Statute of Limitation

The IRS has 10 years to collect unpaid tax debt. We identify the Collection Statute End Date (CSED) for a tax period and provide solutions to stop enforcement activity until the CSED for the tax period expires. We will also identify if you are owed a refund from previous tax years – you have three years from the date the return was due to file and claim the refund.


Filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may have many different advantages depending on your circumstances including reducing the total tax liability owed, eliminating unsecured non-tax debt, stopping penalties and interest from further accruing, and releasing levies. Filing for bankruptcy is likely just a part of a comprehensive tax resolution plan.

Currently Not Collectible Status

For those who are ineligible for an Offer in Compromise, cannot file for bankruptcy, or unable to do an installment agreement, receiving an IRS Currently Non-Collectible status to temporarily stop all collection action. This is often an ideal interim solution while preparing an Offer in Compromise, filing for bankruptcy, or letting Statute of Limitations expire.
