Work with experienced legal counsel during IRS investigation

Last week, the Internal Revenue Service released its annual Criminal Investigation report for 2016, detailing the number and type of investigations, recommended prosecutions and federal sentences obtained against those accused of tax crimes. While the total number may seem large to those unfamiliar with the annual report, they actually show that there was a general decrease in cases.

Know your rights as a taxpayer in the US

Folks across Atlanta are starting to receive W-2s and other tax documentation so they can file their returns in the next few months. As people prepare their taxes, it can become clear very quickly that no matter how many times you go through tax season, it never seems to get any easier.

Looking at the IRS appeals process and expedited resolution of tax controversies, P.2

Previously, we began looking at the IRS appeals process and how the Fast Track Mediation Program fits within that overall process.

Identity theft and your taxes: Prevent yourself from becoming a victim.

2016 is shaping up to be a busy year for you and your family. Your responsibilities to your children, job and house never seem to lessen.

Taking a gamble with the IRS? You could lose big

However, it can be easy to forget some of these transactions, particularly when they were infrequent or seemingly insignificant events over the last year.

Does the IRS ever offer relief from penalties?

People often assume federal agencies like the IRS are ruthless and impossible to deal with when and if an issue arises. However, while it can undoubtedly be frustrating to figure out problems with the IRS, it is not impossible, particularly if you know your rights and legal options.

Don't fall victim to IRS scams

One of the more frightening calls a person can receive is one from a government agent. For instance, a call from someone at the IRS can immediately send you into a panic. In the event that you are contacted by someone from the IRS, it will be crucial that you take seriously whatever they are saying and/or requesting.

Millennials and the challenges the face with paying taxes

This fear can motivate people to make some unwise decisions, from ignoring their responsibilities to pay their taxes to avoiding any and all interaction or correspondence with the IRS.
