- How to Plan Ahead with Upcoming Tax Changes
It is wise to know what the tax changes are when planning for the next tax season. Following are a few of the changes for 2013 that could affect the amount of taxes that you will pay.
- What Happens When You Are Audited?
Many Americans live in fear that the dreaded IRS man will come knocking with in-home income tax audits. The truth of the matter is that the auditing process usually begins with a letter or a phone call that you must respond to.
- Who Is An Income Tax Return Preparer?
Income tax return preparers may be subject to a number of general penalty provisions as well as specific preparer penalties aimed directly at them. Beware getting yourself into a position of having overstated deduction areas repeatedly. You can lose your right to prepare returns if you do.
- What Assets Can the IRS Seize?
A non-wage levy seizes the taxpayer’s right, title and interest to all property that is in the possession of the levied party (the person or company holding your property for you) at the time the levy is served. It seizes no more and no less. The exemptions from levy are few and meager, but they exist and consist of the first (sometimes the last) line of defense against the levy.
- Your Statute of Limitations for an IRS Tax Audit
The wise taxpayer will always ask his or her tax lawyer or tax audit representative in cases like tax audit cases first about the statute of limitations in the case.

And, it is set by statute, hence “statute of limitations.”

- IRS Tax Liens and Levies - The Strongest Debt Collection Methods
If you owe money to the IRS and they find that you are not paying your taxes they will take money from you right out of your bank account. Tax liens and levies are used by the IRS to take over your bank accounts, property, and other assets.
- Payroll Taxes and Trust Fund Recovery
The IRS has made some changes, taking advantage of new payment technologies that remove any wiggle-room for employers to make the payroll tax payments. As of January 1, 2011 Employers are required to make their federal tax payments through the electronic federal tax payments system. This system is free but employers must register to get started. To make things more complex the employer must make separate payments for each different tax return type including tax forms 940, 941 and 945.
- Payroll Taxes Are Very Different than All Other Types of IRS Problems
With some tax problems - like not paying or even not filing personal income taxes - it can take the IRS a while (even years) to “catch on”. And even when they do finally realize there’s a problem, they may not react so quickly.
