When people hear about someone facing tax problems, they often make some unflattering assumptions about that person. They might think he or she broke the law or is trying to cheat others or the system. These assumptions can make people feel embarrassed and ashamed to discuss tax-related issues should they arise.
In reality, however, people from all walks of life can end up having to deal with the IRS and tax complications. After all, our tax code is incredibly complex and it changes constantly, which makes it all but impossible for the average person to navigate the system without issue.
