The decision to get yourself out of debt is a life changer if you are willing to make the necessary commitment that goes with that. You can learn how to get out of debt and how to avoid the mistakes that could torpedo the whole thing.

Getting out of debt involves changing spending habits, learning how to budget, knowing who and how much you owe, and knowing where to find help when you get off track. In other words, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made, and it’s possible that you’ll make some mistakes along the way.

To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove to be costly, Fresh Start Tax Relief Services has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when facing a tax debt.

1. Ignoring the tax notices that are sent to them

Many times people do this because they are too scared to face the issue. They do not understand that the longer they wait, the more the interest and penalties add up. Because they have demonstrated that it is an issue they would like to ignore, they should hire a professional to help them through the process.

2. Owing the IRS a lot of money and not filing tax returns

This happens because they are scared to see how much they will owe if they start to file. Penalties and interest add up so fast. They can start by hiring a tax professional to file all of the missing tax returns first and then figure out a resolution for the balances.

3. Failing to supply documents

Sometimes people remember to hire a company to help them resolve their tax issues, but they do not supply the paperwork or documents that are required to resolve their tax case. They need to be an active participant in their tax case. Tax companies cannot resolve their issue without the help of the taxpayer.

4. Not following deadlines

The IRS will often give a deadline to provide certain information within a certain period of time. Sometimes certain clients will not heed the deadline, costing themselves more money and more heartache.
