The attorneys at The Tax Defenders, an award-winning tax relief agency in Chicago, are committed to helping people settle their tax debt with dignity and respect. As part of this mission, they are spreading the word about a limited-time tax amnesty program being offered by the State of Illinois.

The Tax Defenders’ experienced team of tax relief attorneys knows that the IRS can be daunting, leaving many people discouraged and overwhelmed by the prospect of resolving old tax debt. They are dedicated to partnering with their clients on the journey to tax resolution, offering the knowledge and guidance that can take the difficulty and stress out of the process.

The firm serves clients in their home state of Illinois as well as nationally. Their expertise extends to IRS levies, payroll tax issues, unfiled tax returns, wage garnishment, IRS audits, payment plan issues, and more. With their honest and insightful counsel, they have helped save 15,000+ clients more than $19 million in tax debt.

In its ongoing effort to help beleaguered taxpayers, the firm is urging Illinois residents with overdue taxes to get in on the Tax Amnesty Program that runs from October 1 through November 15. During this time, Illinois residents with a qualifying state tax liability can may full payment and get complete forgiveness on interests and penalties on their tax debt.

The program applies to taxes due from periods ending after June 30, 2011, and prior to July 1, 2018. The state will not seek civil or criminal prosecution for any period that amnesty is granted to the taxpayer.

Joe Hanley, owner of The Tax Defenders, said this is a singular opportunity to wipe the slate clean with the Illinois Department of Revenue.

“If ever there was a time to take care of old state tax debt, this is it,” said Hanley. “This is a one-time deal rising from legislation proposed by the governor that offers a lot of hope to those struggling under the burden of unpaid taxes.”

Hanley said that his experienced tax resolution firm is poised to help people who want to get in on the amnesty program but don’t know quite where to start.

“This is a great program, but a lot of people are still going to need guidance to know how to jump through the different Department of Revenue hoops,” said Hanley. “We can help clients know how to approach this program in the way that makes the most sense financially and ensures that they go through all of the necessary channels to qualify.”
