Tax Relief in Iowa

Iowa MapIowa residents tend to rank towards the middle of state averages across a number of measurements related to taxes. For example, Iowans’ typically pay approximately $1400 per person in property taxes, ranking the state 18th overall.

Iowa’s state and local individual taxes also put the state in 18th place, with an average tax of $963 collected for every resident. Iowa ranks 39th with respect to federal taxes, averaging well below the national average with $8650 in taxes owed by a typical Iowan.

However, Iowa has experienced a decline of nearly 5% in median household incomes in recent years. This overall decline, in conjunction with individual circumstances of job loss, medical expenses, and overextended credit can lead Iowans to become delinquent in payment of their tax obligations. Unfortunately, for some people, when their tax bills come due on April 15th, they have no savings in reserve to pay those bills; living from one paycheck to the next in order to meet basic needs of shelter, food, clothing, and transportation has left them with nothing to set aside for taxes.

As the pressure mounts, they continue to struggle with making ends meet, and their tax debt still goes unpaid; Iowans in these circumstances may then experience the stress of wage garnishment or seizure of assets as state and federal tax collection agencies force the payment of taxes in those ways. Many state residents are unaware of tax relief strategies available to help them manage their financial challenges related to tax debt.

Tax relief companies are often useful in helping Iowans solve some of their most serious tax problems. These tax relief specialists work to analyze their clients’ tax obligations and in many circumstances they can significantly reduce their tax debt. Tax relief companies have a range of tools at their disposal, such as investigation of tax liens and levies, audit representation, and negotiating penalty abatement.
