Our success rate in negotiating successful subordinations, inter-creditor agreements and reduced/modified payment plans is over 85% percent.
Why is 1st Capital able to get the job done when your tax accountant and attorney has failed in the past?
The answer is simple. Factors such as 1st Capital have a unique relationship with taxing authorities and judgment lien creditors which your attorney and tax accountant will never have. Let me explain. The IRS and judgment creditors view 1st Capial as a third party independent financial institution that not only believes in your company, but is willing to invest additional needed working capital (CASH) into your business to ensure its success. The IRS and Judgment creditors view 1st Capital as the solution to resolving the debt they are attempting to collect from you.

Additionally, 1st Capital's proposal typically requires the IRS or judgment creditor to accept a reduced settlement amount prior to 1st Capital's commitment to provide funding. The comfort level created by adding 1st Capital's financial strength and commitment to resolving their debt is one of the keys to our ongoing success in helping our clients. Settlements can vary depending on the amount of the debt, the age of the debt, your previous payment history and your current relationship with them. Some of the ways we settle cases are:
Abatement of Taxes and Penalties:

Removal of all or some of the taxes and penalties due.

Offer in Compromise:

Reduce the amount owed based on what you can offer now or in the near future.

Cash Payment:

1st Capital will agree to pay a substantial CASH payment at the signing of the agreement.

Installment Agreements:

Frequently Asked Questions
My company has a federal tax lien. Am I eligible to factor my accounts receivable?
Yes, with provisions. Factoring companies are primarily concerned about their ability to collect payments from your customers on your factored accounts. If your company has a federal tax lien, the IRS's claim against your company's accounts receivable is superior to your factoring company's. Factoring companies therefore must either set aside a reserve from your finding to protect themselves against the possibility that the IRS may levy your customers or obtain an agreement with the IRS that will allow you to factor your accounts receivable with the IRS's consent and agreement to take no collection action against your accounts receivable that may jeopardize the factoring company's ability to collect on your factored accounts.

My company has negotiated an installment agreement with the IRS on unpaid back payroll taxes. Will 1st Capital factor my accounts receivable?
Yes, provided no lien has been filed by the IRS. Factoring companies are able to monitor your installment payments and confirm you remain current on your current payroll taxes. Monitoring the status of your installment payments is necessary because the factoring company must protect its security interest in your accounts receivable. Should your company fall behind in its payments to the IRS, they may place a lien against your company's assets and enforcing this lien by levying your customers. This collection action makes it impossible for factoring companies to continue to factor your accounts receivable until the taxes are paid or the lien is released.

The IRS is about to levy my bank accounts again. Can 1st Capital offer immediate help?
Yes. We can usually stop a levy or garnishment fast, often the same day. Furthermore, we immediately start communicating directly, on your behalf, with the taxing agency. This allows you peace of mind, knowing that an experienced professional is handling your case.
