Do you know the way to a good tax attorney?

In many cases, the old saying goes, it's not the crime, but the cover-up that proves ones undoing. Denial is often more damaging than the initial mistake, crime or error. With tax issues, such as back taxes or tax evasion, that is often the case. Because the Internal Revenue Service is primarily concerned with money, they understand that individuals and businesses often attempt to minimize their tax burden. However, when legitimate efforts to reduce tax obligations may cross the line, at least in the IRS's view, to illegal tax evasion, their response is essentially to pile on the fines and penalties.

Penalty relief may be available for taxpayers filing for an extension

This year, some people and businesses may have had problems with timely filing of returns due to problems caused by Congresses late enactment of the American Taxpayer Relief Act, which was not completed until January 2, 2013. The IRS had to revise some of the necessary forms and reprogram some systems and that delay may have made it impossible for some taxpayers to file on time.

Tax implications of mortgage debt forgiveness

The real estate bubble of the mid-2000s and the resulting collapse of the residential real estate market have led to billions of dollars in losses for borrowers. When the market collapsed, many borrowers were left with loan obligations that were worth significantly more than the underlying collateral, the home.

Tax deductions for medical expenses

We all know how expensive healthcare is, and how much of the federal budgetary problems have been caused by the growth of Medicare and Medicaid. Georgia residents certainly know when they have to pay for healthcare charges out of pocket, just how expensive it can be. It's important to remember that if you have a significant amount of medical and dental costs in a tax year, you may be able to deduct some of that expense.

IRS offers temporary eligibility changes for Voluntary Classification Settlement Program

One area where a business can get in trouble with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is through misclassification of workers. Some businesses treat workers as independent contractors for tax purposes, which lessen some of the paperwork and recordkeeping requirements and may save them from other tax issues.
