Moves to ease tax burdens in Georgia after Irma

By the time Irma reached Georgia last week, she was not the hurricane she had been. But even in her diminished state she wreaked a great deal of havoc. After a statewide tour this week , the governor said the storm touched virtually every county and that recovery is likely to take a long time. He pledged tax relief, though he offered no detail on what form that might take.

Tax dispute involving microprocessor inventor centers on issue of residency

Gilbert Hyatt, the man responsible for inventing the integrated circuit microprocessor, has been involved in his share of legal disputes over the years. For years, Hyatt was involved in patent litigation concerning his invention. Nowadays, Hyatt continues to be involved in a dispute over tax liability stemming from income he earned from his patent.

A brief look at the IRS appeals process, and the benefit of working with skilled legal counsel, P.2

Last time, we began discussing the IRS appeals process. As we pointed out last time, the right to appeal an IRS determination is one of taxpayers’ basic rights, and taxpayers should not be afraid to make use of the process when they have a disagreement with a decision made by an auditor or revenue officer.

Ensuring release of tax lien after, before payment

Last time, we mentioned that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has filed an appeal with the IRS seeking temporary relief from payment of back taxes and a reduction in penalties. That appeal was filed in response to a tax lien the agency filed in April. It remains to be seen what will become of Mayweather’s petition, of course, but he is at least attempting to engage the IRS appeals process to protect his interests.

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. The IRS appeals process is important because most disputes can be solved through it. Taxpayers do have the right to bypass the appeals process and take their case directly to court, but doing so is often not going to be the most efficient way to handle a tax dispute.

3 reasons to talk to an attorney if you are facing tax problems

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.
