3 actions to avoid in hopes of preventing an IRS audit

Whether you have already filed or can feel the heat of the tax season deadline quickly approaching, you may have apprehensions regarding your tax return. Though some relief comes from completing the filing process, you may still worry that the Internal Revenue Service could contact you about an issue with your return or to conduct an audit.

What to do when your taxes are complicated

With a little more than a month left before tax returns are due, you may be gathering your documents and getting mentally prepared for a long afternoon of assembling your return. If you own a business, own investment properties or have other complex income, you already know the frustration and confusion you may face.

Haven't filed taxes in a few years? You may wish to take action.

Taxes are complicated. This is a notion with which most everyone agrees. Because it can prove difficult to fully and correctly file tax returns, you — and many other California residents — may not know the best way to handle any issues that may arise with your particular tax situation. In fact, because of fears and anxieties, you may have avoided filing your taxes for a few years.

Should an enrolled agent or tax attorney help with your tax prep?

With tax season just around the corner, you and many other California residents may already dread having to go through the filing process. Not only does it take time and effort to ensure that you complete your forms correctly, you may also end up owing taxes, which can feel disheartening and also potentially cause financial strain. If a mistake ends up on your tax forms, you could also possibly face additional issues that could include an audit.

Closing out the 2017 tax year

Tax season is approaching, and it won't be long before you will start receiving the appropriate forms in the mail. You may have opted to receive your documents electronically, in which case you will want to check with your payroll office to find out when and how they will deliver these forms.

Now is the time to prep for tax season

With the holidays just around the corner, the last thing you want to think about is probably taxes. If you are like many people, you wait until April to even look at your taxes. Maybe you are even one of those people who waits until midnight of the tax deadline to send off your returns. After all, why deal with the pain now if you can put it off for months?

Starting a business? What will your taxes look like?

Few things are more rewarding than starting your own small business. Before you open your door or go live online, you have numerous decisions to make that will affect the future success of your business. Some of those decisions will have a profound effect on what your federal taxes will look like.

Your IRS obligations know no borders

If you have an adventurous spirit, you may have decided that working overseas was the right step for you. You applied for and accepted a job outside the United States. You may have compiled a list of items you need to take with you and tasks you need to complete before you leave California.

What do you need to know about filing taxes after a divorce?

A divorce changes many things about your life, including your taxes. Whether you find yourself at the beginning, middle or end of your divorce process, it may help to gain an understanding of how being single again can affect the filing of your taxes.

What should I do about tax debt if I didn't pay the IRS in full?

Issues related to taxes are complicated, particularly for individuals who are unable to pay the full amount or did not pay the full amount at filing. While tax laws are complicated, it can be immensely helpful to know what to expect and how you should move forward in a productive manner.
