Residency, domicile can become an issue in state tax liability disputes

Previously, we began looking at a California tax dispute involving the issue of residency. As we noted last time, residency can be a complicated topic in tax disputes, particularly when an individual maintains multiple homes across the country. For those who do own multiple residences, it is important to understand the tax implications, and to plan accordingly.

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.

Work with experienced legal counsel to address issues with charitable donation deductions

Last time, we mentioned a legislative proposal that would make significant changes to tax law, changes that are very likely to have a significant negative impact on charitable giving. It isn’t clear yet how far the proposal will advance—there are certainly opponents—but if it does, the effects could be widespread, hitting nonprofit organizations hard.

Tax proposal could significantly reduce charitable giving

Charitable giving is something many people do in order to support a cause they believe in or to help those in need. For some people, charitable giving is sporadic or occasional, while others give regularly on an annual basis. However people give, one of the benefits of giving is that donations are tax-deductible. Tax deduction is only worth it, though, if taxpayers’ deductions exceed the standard deduction.

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.
