Private collectors are coming for tax debts. What you should know

It’s not particularly common for taxpayers to think about their tax bill (or their tax refund, for that matter) in late September. However, the Internal Revenue Service is. In fact, the federal government is poised to start collecting on old tax bills, and it is in the process of employing private collection firms to go after them.

Rapper Nelly hit with IRS tax lien

Grammy award winning hip-hop artist Nelly is apparently in the crosshairs of the IRS. The artist known for hits such as "Country Grammar" and "Hot in Here" has been saddled with an IRS lien for more than $2.4 million. Indeed, Nelly (whose real name is Cornell Haynes Jr.) has not been in the limelight for a while, but that does not mean that he has not been collecting royalties and income from his past works.

Can graduate students deduct moving expenses?

As we noted in our prior post, few people really think about their future tax bill in September. After all, there are more than six months before next year’s federal income tax filing deadline. Nevertheless, time doesn’t stop when it comes to finding and noting deductions.

A measure of warning from the IRS to taxpayers

It is not very often that taxpayers get a measure of warning about the upcoming tax season, but a recent announcement by the Internal Revenue Service could be an encouraging sign. According to an accountingtoday.com report, the IRS is encouraging taxpayers to consider a mid-year withholding checkup to ensure that they are properly preparing themselves for next year’s tax season.

How back-to-school shopping can be tax deductible.

With Labor Day weekend upon us, most parents (and kids) know it’s that time of year. If the bevy of commercials haven’t given you the hint, a new school year is now upon us. With that, parents are expected to spend an average of $400 on back-to-school shopping, including clothes, electronics, school supplies and extracurricular activities.
