Low income taxpayers could be spared from IRS collection actions

It is one thing to have to deal with the perils of losing a job or having a prolonged illness and how it can affect one’s financial condition, but it is quite another to deal with the Internal Revenue Service when you are having trouble making ends meet. In a number of our posts, we have highlighted the IRS’ ability to initiate levies and to garnish one’s wages. But when a person is experiencing extreme or prolonged financial difficulties, IRS collection actions may have far reaching implications.

Uber could face billions in outstanding payroll taxes ?

San Francisco based ride sharing company Uber has arguably become a phenomenon. With the ability to locate an Uber driver and have a ride within minutes, the company has threatened to change the taxicab industry forever. However, with any new and successful company come legal challenges, and Uber is no different.

Are foreign earnings double taxed?

The great thing about small businesses in America is that they commonly don’t need a great deal of capital to start up, and they can react and adapt in much more of a nimble manner compared to large multinational companies.

Examples of the power of the IRS

Even for people not familiar with tax law, the term "tax evasion" is not a good thing. Indeed, most people would not know about the penalties that come with being convicted for federal tax evasion or failing to pay employment taxes (for employers). However, the threshold level fears can't be underestimated. The Internal Revenue Service can order an offending company to pay taxes and substantial penalties for non compliance with the tax code.  These penalties can be fatal to a business, and leave a number of related principals liable as well.
