Tax Services

Taxpayers who need to deal with extraordinary tax issues, such as tax audits, IRS collections, and penalties for failure to file tax returns or failure to pay taxes will want to work with an IRS tax specialist in San Antonio. The Tax Liability Consultants of San Antonio and South Texas can not only ensure that these issues are addressed correctly, but we can also help taxpayers make sure they are taking the right steps to address their ongoing tax concerns. We provide guidance for individuals and families as they file tax returns, and we also work with businesses of all sizes and types to ensure they are paying all applicable federal, state, and local taxes and meeting their requirements for reporting financial information.

tax services IRS Tax Audits and Appeals

If the IRS uncovers errors when reviewing the tax returns filed by an individual or business, it may perform an audit to gather financial information and determine whether additional taxes are owed. We can provide representation during an audit and help taxpayers determine how to minimize the taxes and penalties they must pay.

tax services IRS Wage Garnishment, Collections, and Liens

The IRS has multiple methods of collecting taxes and penalties owed by taxpayers. We can provide assistance for taxpayers who may be subject to IRS levies that seize their assets or garnish their wages, and we can help both individuals and businesses understand their options for addressing and removing tax liens on their property.

tax services Non-Filers of Taxes

Taxpayers who have not filed tax returns as required may face penalties for failure to file. We work with individuals and businesses to address delinquent returns, become compliant with the IRS's requirements, and determine whether penalty abatement may be available.

tax services Delinquent Back Taxes Representation

In addition to owing unpaid taxes, taxpayers will usually be required to pay penalties and interest until the amount owed is paid in full. We can help individuals and businesses determine their best options for paying off back taxes, including determining whether they can receive relief based on reasonable cause.

tax services Business Accounting

In many cases, business-related tax issues occur due to a failure to maintain the proper financial information or meet all reporting requirements. We can provide customized accounting solutions for businesses, helping them manage cash flow and related concerns while ensuring that financial information is easily accessible when filing tax documents.

tax services Tax Return Preparation

Preparing and filing tax returns on an annual basis can often be a complex task, and taxpayers may not be aware of the strategies that can help them minimize their tax burden and avoid audits or other financial issues. We can ensure that all tax returns are filed correctly while ensuring that taxpayers claim all available tax deductions and credits.

tax services Offers in Compromise

When taxpayers owe significant amounts of money to the IRS, they may be able to reduce the total amount they will be required to pay by making a settlement offer. We can help taxpayers provide information to show that they qualify for an offer in compromise while negotiating an appropriate settlement amount.

tax services Divorce Tax Issues

We work with divorcing couples to ensure they understand how the decisions made during their divorce will affect their taxes both at the time of their divorce and in the future. We can also provide representation to spouses who are facing audits or collections by the IRS and determine whether they qualify for innocent spouse relief.

  • Teresa C.


    "I was referred to Ed Villanueva by my divorce attorney about 8 or 9 years ago, when the IRS cleaned out my bank account because my ex-husband, who ironically is a public figure in South Texas, had, unbeknownst to me, not paid our taxes for the last 7 years of our marriage..."


    Jorge Arias


    "I'd like to write a few words to express my gratitude and thanks to Mr. Ed Villanueva. Unfortunately, I put myself in no man's land with the IRS - you can call it ignorance for listening to somebody else, not dealing with the issue right away, nothing is going to happen mentality, etc..."


    Jennifer G.


    "After my recent divorce, I learned that my ex had not been keeping up with the taxes for our business. I was unsure of how to make heads or tails of the whole situation and hoped that everything would just resolve itself - even though I knew I couldn't just bury my head in the sand..."
