Call for a free consultation today!
Don't Avoid Your Lender
Avoiding your lender sends the signal that you have no intention of paying one single dime. This will either result in you being sued by your lender or having the SBA come after you, which could result in severe consequences for the rest of your life, including having your wages garnished, as well as your federal tax refund taken.
Don't Take on More Debt
If your business is losing money every month and you are beginning to use credit cards to pay the bills and you are looking into taking out a home equity loan, then it's time to call it quits. Taking on more debt will only put you further into a hole.
Don't Sell Your Business Assets Without Permission
If your SBA loan and other business loans are in default, do not sell your business assets. If you hope to settle with the SBA and your other lenders, you have to have something to offer, and if you sell your business assets to pay the bills, you have nothing at the end of the day.
Don't Commit Fraud
Trying to get around the federal government is just not a good idea. They have seen every trick in the book, and, odds are, you will get caught. When that happens, you can expect the book to be thrown at you with a closed door to negotiations. Don't try to sell your business or otherwise mislead your lender in any way.

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION
Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture. After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars. We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA). As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.
