Clients come to us with a variety of tax problems that came about from many different ways. However, in the end, no matter how unique a case may be they can broadly be categorized as one or more of the following tax problems:
Delinquent/Unfiled Tax Returns
Many taxpayers have tax returns that are unfiled and are receiving notices from the IRS asking them to file their taxes. Often, the reason why taxes aren't filed is because they anticipate to owe taxes or owed in the past and don't want their tax debt to increase.
Delinquent/Unpaid Tax Liability
This comes about from tax returns that have been filed by the taxpayer or by the IRS on behalf of the taxpayer. The amount becomes much greater than originally thought simply because of penalties and interest the IRS will add on to the tax debt.
The IRS will select tax returns to audit randomly or because of certain items on a tax return. Audits are conducted by correspondence through the mail or by a locally assigned auditor. Regardless of how the return was selected for audit or how the audit is being conducted, a great level of attention on it is needed.
