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 Forest

Are You a Restaurant or Bar Owner Who Owes Taxes? You always hoped to own a Lake Forest restaurant or bar. Operate a joint where people could chill. Let their hair down. Have a tasty meal. Enjoy the camaraderie of others.


The schedule and duties were nonstop. The repeat clientele from Lake Forest, 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 threaten that you owe sales taxes, or payroll taxes … or both? What happened?


The explanations could be numerous. The market segment of your operation, for one. Being cash-intensive companies, bars and restaurants are regularly targeted for audits by tax agencies in Lake Forest.

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


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


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


The “why,” at this point, might be immaterial. As tax troubles mount, you’re just worried about losing the place – “your” Lake Forest 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, an opportunity to straighten out your tax problems.

When they opened their operations, though, no one informed them they would be under the magnifying glass of state and federal tax enforcers. One or two errors, and they pounce.
