Who can benefit from tax relief strategies?

If you are concerned about whether (or when) the IRS is going to exercise its enforcement powers and make your life miserable, radio advertisements for tax relief companies may catch your attention. The general pitch is that they can possibly help in defending against tax levies and reduce the amount you may end up owing (and paying). But are all of these claims true? Better yet, are they a better option than enlisting a tax attorney?

Major tax filing questions during divorce

Depending on your income and tax bracket, the federal tax filing deadline is another issue to be concerned with in the midst of a contentious divorce. Essentially, tax issues can create a number of financial questions that must be resolved. Indeed, divorcees may divided on how an income tax refund should be divided, but they may be hopelessly deadlocked on who should be responsible for paying past due taxes.

What is the difference between a tax credit and a tax deduction?

Sometimes it feels like the world changes when daylight savings time comes around. In reality it is just another hour, but as the days get longer and spring arrives, don’t be surprised if you want to spend more time outdoors; especially after work.

Will the IRS be interested in seizing your property?

We have noted in a number of our posts, the power the IRS has to collect taxes; especially those that are past due. The IRS may place liens on property, and even exercise levies on homes, cars and even financial accounts.  After all, the federal government believes that there are billions in uncollected tax debt that can be recovered; hence the use of private collectors on some accounts.

Things that could subject you to an audit

If you have finished compiling information so that you may file your federal income tax return, we commend you. Getting one’s taxes filed before the deadline (April 18 for this year) is an accomplishment. While you may breathe a sigh of relief, your dealings with the IRS may not be over; especially if you have the misfortune of having your return flagged for an audit.
