How to protect your workers from tax identity theft

Tax season is here, and many people in Atlanta and across the country cannot wait to receive their W-2s to file their taxes. W-2s and other tax-related documents used for filing tax returns contain personal and sensitive information. Many small business owners end up struggling to get their documents in order for tax season. Some employers send them electronically online while others do send them through the mail. It is no secret that hackers resort to extraordinary measures to hack and steal sensitive information to use for personal gain. 

Would the IRS send a letter saying you may deserve a tax credit?

You’ve received a letter—seemingly from the IRS—stating that you may qualify for an additional tax credit. In this age of heightened concerns surrounding identity theft, you’re suspicious about the letter’s legitimacy. Would the IRS really go out of their way to help you save a few bucks?

Wintering abroad? Make sure you’re current on your taxes.

You’ve had enough of Atlanta’s unpredictable winter weather. The rain, the ice, the blizzards the shut the city down for days… you’ve decided it’s time for a change of pace. You’ve booked yourself a condo in the Bahamas, and you’re not planning to return until spring. However, when you get to the airport, the customs officer pulls you aside.

Clearing up the myth that filing your tax return is voluntary

Despite strong evidence to the contrary, many people in the United States have a belief that they are not actually required by law to file their income tax returns. In recent American history, many pacifists have refused to pay their taxes as a form of conscientious objection to the country’s war. Even in the last year, people have refused to pay taxes in protest to the actions of the current administration.

5 business expenses employers cannot write off

With tax season right around the corner, it is time for small business owners across the state to begin getting their paperwork in order. While many people start a small business with the goal of being their own boss, it also means there are an array of tax laws to follow. Even one slip-up can result in significant penalties. 

How do you know you have an honest tax preparer?

You may think all tax preparers are created equal. That would be a dangerous assumption to make. There are dishonest tax preparers out there, and if your highly sensitive information gets into their hands, it could spell real trouble for you. Dishonest tax preparers could commit tax fraud in their clients’ names as well as steal their clients’ tax refunds.
