Are You an Illinois Restaurant or Bar Owner Who Owes Taxes?

Tax Resolution Can Serve Up Tax Debt Relief that Gets You Cooking Again in Lake County

Are You a Restaurant or Bar Owner Who Owes Taxes? You always wanted to own a Lake County restaurant or bar. Run a place where people could enjoy themselves. Let their hair down. Have a good meal. Enjoy the companionship of friends.


The hours and responsibilities were daunting. The repeat customers from Lake County, and smiles on people’s faces, made it all worth it. Your dream was alive.


Why did the threatening letters from the IRS, declaring you owe back taxes, start? Why does the Illinois Department of Revenue assert you owe sales taxes, or payroll taxes … or both? What happened?


The reasons could be numerous. The nature of your venture, for one. Being cash-intensive operations, bars and restaurants are frequently singled out for audits by tax agencies in Lake County.

Sometimes inquiries are sparked when records from credit card companies doesn’t jibe with the tax returns from these types of businesses.


Have you unintentionally filled out sales tax forms incorrectly, or missed filings? If so, the IRS and IDOR estimate what you owe – and it always tends toward more, not less.


It’s feasible your filed tax returns don’t include all eligible costs (especially payroll and food), leaving you paying more taxes than needed.


The “why,” at this point, might be beside the point. As tax troubles add up, you’re just concerned about losing the place – “your” Lake County place – that you worked so hard to build. Perhaps, sadly, it’s already closed … but the tax collectors keep dogging you.


Don’t lose hope. Instead, give Alliance Tax Resolution Service, the Midwest’s premier tax resolution firm, a chance to fix your tax scenario.


We promise a way out can be negotiated. We can’t promise how it will be resolved. We do promise to find you the lowest potential settlement allowed by law.


Since 2009, we’ve negotiated tax debt relief agreements for bars and restaurant owners in Lake County who faced unexpected tax issues. They aren’t deadbeats or tax cheats. When they opened their businesses, though, no one informed them they would be under the tight scrutiny of state and federal tax enforcers. One or two missteps, lapses, and they pounce.


The wrong tactic is to overlook the reality, and cross your fingers it goes away. It won’t. Interest and penalties will accrue. Before long, warning letters could be joined by garnishments from your bank account.


Don’t let the problem get this serious. Alliance Tax Resolution Service is a no-judgment zone that aids taxpayers who have made honest oversights or, as with Lake County bar and restaurant owners, work in an industry targeted for heavy tax enforcement.
