Annual bonuses and gifts are taxable in the year you receive them

Are you expecting a holiday gift or bonus? If so, terrific. You should be aware, however, that gifts and bonuses are taxable as income. Even if your employer specifically states that you're receiving a gift, the IRS won't treat that present as an actual gift but rather as additional wages you have received.

A few IRS audit trends to be aware of

Did you know the IRS has three kinds of audits? The most common is the correspondence audit, where the agency challenges your return in a letter. The next most common is the office audit, where you are invited to come to the nearest IRS office to defend your taxes. Finally, there is the field audit, where an IRS agent shows up at your doorstep to check on the details of your return.
