  • IRS Grants Extension For Victims of Boston Marathon Bombing

    Friday 19th of April 2013 12:26:23 PM


    The IRS announced that they will in fact grant a three-month extension for tax filing and paying to all Boston area Tax Payers that were affected by the Boston Marathon Bombings.

    Tax relief is granted to all tax payers that reside in Suffolk County, Massachusetts. This included the city of Boston. It also includes victims, families of victims, all EMS that were involved, as well as those that were affected by this disaster that live outside Suffolk County. Also those taxpayers that have contracted tax preparers that were unfavorably affected by this calamity.

    IRS Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller said “Our hearts go out to the people affected by this tragic event,” and “We want victims and others affected by this terrible tragedy to have the time they need to finish their individual tax returns.”

    The IRS plans on distributing a notice informing all eligible tax payers that they have until July 15, 2013, to file their 2012 tax returns or pay any dues to the IRS that would have been normally due April 15th. The IRS will also eradicate any penalty that tax payers normally receive when filing late just as long the eligible tax payers file no later than July 15, 2013. Normally there would have been a 3% interest that is compounded daily in addition to a late filing fee.

    If you are a tax payer that resides in Suffolk County then there is no further action to be taken. The IRS is automatically granting the extensions for those eligible tax payers. If you reside outside Suffolk County and need to claim this relief you should contact the IRS at 1-866-562-5227 on or after April 23, 2013. The IRS also said that if you should receive notices about penalties you may call that number for penalty abatement.

    If you need more time that the July 15, 2013 deadline to file your taxes you should visit the IRS WEBSITE and fill out Form 4868 no later than July 15, 2013.

    You can also visit IRS WEBSITE for other tax related questions or call 1-800-829-1040.

  • IRS Provides Relief

    Wednesday 20th of March 2013 4:34:36 PM


    If you had a problem filing your tax return due to the IRS not providing certain forms until after January then the Internal Revenue Service is trying to make things better. It was announced today that the IRS will in fact provide relief for the late-payment penalty that would have been assessed to individuals and business that are requesting an extension because they were unable to file due to missing forms.

    Regularly when filing late a 0.5 percent per month late payment penalty would have been assessed. The IRS is granting relief for this penalty. The relief pertains to any of the forms that were postponed until February or as late as March. This was due to the ratification of the America Taxpayer Relief Act.

    If you are a taxpayer that is claiming certain tax benefits as reduction abstractions as well as an array of business credits then you will qualify for this relief. You can visit Notice 2013-24 for a complete list of appropriate forms.

    Keep in mind that any individual or business that may qualify for this relief must adequately request an extension for 2012 tax returns. No special documentation is required on the extension request however as usual one must approximate their anticipated tax liability and pay that amount by the original due date of said tax return. Lastly, take note that interest will still incur if a tax payment is made after the original deadline.

  • The IRS is Holding $917M of YOUR Money!

    Thursday 14th of March 2013 10:14:06 AM


    The Internal Revenue Service announced today that there are approximately 984,400 U.S. Taxpayers that have failed to file or submit tax returns for 2009. What does this mean to you? It means that if you are one of those 984,400 U.S. Taxpayers then you are missing out on your claim to a portion of $917 Million in refunds!

    Most tax payers did not file because they thought that they would not qualify for a refund or that their adjusted gross income (AGI) was insignificant enough not to file. Regardless of how small your AGI is you can still file and qualify to receive a refund from the taxes that were withheld from your paycheck.

    If you choose to file your 2009 tax returns, the window of opportunity closes promptly Monday, April 15, 2013. Reason for the final date is because the IRS allows a three-year window of opportunity for claiming a refund. The IRS has estimated that about half the potential refunds for 2009 are in excess of $500.00.

    The IRS has also issued a reminder that if you do in fact file for a 2009 tax refund and in the instance that you owe the IRS any monies than the refund will be held back to repay your debt to the IRS. You would also have to be current with your 2010 and 2011 tax returns.

    Not filing your tax return can also cause you to lose your Earned Income Credit (EIC). 2009 EIC is worth up to $5,657.00. It would probably be in your best interest to go forth with filing your past tax returns!

  • IRS Announces New TAP Members

    Monday 18th of February 2013 11:58:14 AM


    On February 15, 2013 the Internal Revenue Service announced that 26 new members were selected to serve the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP). Taxpayer Advocacy Panel is a federal consultative board that provides taxpayer proposals to develop Internal Revenue Service customer service.

    The 26 new TAP members will join the already existing and returning 51 members. These 26 members were selected from 400 interested nationwide candidates. TAP members are United States citizens that voluntarily serve TAP for a three-year period. TAP members are expected to dedicate approximately 200 to 300 hours of time per year to board activities.

    IRS Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller said “TAP members provide an important voice for taxpayers and provide valuable insights to help run the nation’s tax administration system,”

    TAP members take the suggestions of taxpayers and deliver it to the Internal Revenue Service in an effort to improve IRS customer service and overall customer satisfaction. The idea here is to eliminate taxpayer problems and provide suggestions to evade potential problems.

    “It is critical that the IRS listen to the needs and preferences of America’s taxpayers,” said Nina E. Olson, National Taxpayer Advocate. “The vital work of these citizen volunteers helps the IRS provide all taxpayers with the top-quality service they deserve.”

  • Write Off Your Porsche?

    Wednesday 06th of February 2013 10:18:47 AM


    Wouldn’t it be nice to buy a brand new Porsche and receive a 100% write off? Yes it would! Well, according to the transitory tax cut deal (100% Bonus Depreciation), President Barack Obama and Republicans agreed to last December, now you can. Of course there are some stipulations.

    You can now write off the full purchasing price of NEW vehicles, even if it is a luxury vehicle, as long as the vehicle is being used 100% for business purposes and the vehicle’s gross weight is over 6000lbs. Vehicles used less than 100% of the time for business purposes may have a lower depreciation value.

    Eligible 2011 models include the Porsche Cayenne Turbo (MSRP: $106,000), the BMW X6 M (MSRP: $89,200) and the Ford Lincoln Navigator (MSRP: $62,635). For a more thorough list of which vehicles fall under these parameters it is advised to take this up with a tax professional.

    For more information on this matter please visit the IRS website and look up Section 179 of the tax code.

  • I Can’t Pay My Tax Bill, What Do I Do?

    Monday 04th of February 2013 11:14:16 AM


    So you have filed your taxes and you realize that you can’t afford to pay your tax debt, what do you do? The IRS has different programs set up to help with you paying your tax liability. One would be an installment agreement. Through installment agreements you can make monthly payments to the IRS. The only way you can qualify for this is if the IRS deems that you are not financially able to settle your tax liability. The downside to installment agreements is that the IRS will impose both penalties and interest on your current tax liability. Prior to applying for an installment agreement you must file all required tax returns, determine the largest monthly payment you can make with $25 being the minimum, be aware that all future refunds are forfeited until your liability is paid off and you must be able to show that you do not have alternative ways to pay off your liability like taking a loan or using credit cards.

    Another alternative is applying for an offer in compromise. An offer in compromise will allow you to settle your tax liability less than the full amount that you owe to the IRS. The IRS will consider many factors prior to accepting or denying this request. For instance they will look into your ability to pay, how much income you net, what your expenses are and if you have asset equity that will help pay off your liability to the IRS. For this option you must also be current with all your tax returns and you are not in an open bankruptcy.

    It is generally advised to go through a professional when trying to set up an installment agreement or applying for an offer in compromise. For more information or to speak to a tax expert please visit

  • I Can Deduct What?

    Friday 01st of February 2013 11:34:25 AM


    The United States tax code consists of more than 73,000 pages and it grows constantly. In fact 10,000 additional pages have been added in just the last five years according to Bob Meighan, the vice president of customer advocacy for Turbo Tax.

    According to Meighan there are countless abnormal yet acceptable deductions. Here are just a few:

    Convention in the Tropics: You are fully capable of deducting your travel costs if you are traveling to places like Bermuda, Barbados or Grenada for a business convention, even Mexico, Canada and the US are acceptable. However let’s say you try to deduct a business trip you had in Moscow or Paris, well you better be able to prove the reason why because the IRS will frown upon this circumstance.

    Clarinets and music lessons essential thereto: If your child’s orthodontist prescribes him/her to play the clarinet as an attempt to correct his/her overbite then the clarinet and music lessons can also be deducted.

    A criminal’s defense: A criminal can deduct his lawyer’s fees on his income tax return on the argument that while the criminal is in court he is unable to make money from his primary source of income, ie shoplifting.

    Bad Debts: If you lend someone money and they fail to repay you can also deduct this from you taxes. The only stipulation is the debt must be 100% uncollectable in order to write it off.

    Swimming pools: Your MD must prescribe the use of swimming pools in order for that to be written off. For instance, if you have emphysema and must swim to improve your breathing, then yes you can deduct it.
