  • Highway Use Tax Coming Up

    Monday 26th of August 2013 11:33:50 AM

    0

    If you are a the owner/operator for a commercial vehicle weighing greater than 55,000 lbs then you should know by now that the Highway Use Tax is due on September 3.   This gives tax payers an additional 3 days to pay the tax.  Normally it would have been due on August 31 but since that falls on a Saturday the IRS has allowed for an additional 3 day extension with no penalty.

    The form to be used in this case is FORM 2290.  Although tax payers have the option to manually fill out the form and mail it in, the IRS encourages tax payers to submit it electronically.  Also, if you are reporting more than 25 vehicles at once it is mandatory that you do e-file.

  • IRA Withdrawal; Taxed or Not Taxed?

    Friday 12th of July 2013 2:23:09 PM

    Generally withdrawals from IRAs (individual retirement accounts) as well as other tax deffered retirement plans are in fact taxable by the federal government. You should also expect to pay state income taxes on these withdrawals. The only exceptions would be if you reside in one of the seven states that do not impose state income taxes. The following would be those seven states: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington state and Wyoming.

    Luckily that is not always the case.  As reported by Market Watch of the Wall Street Journal “Some states don’t tax retirement-account withdrawals at all, and others exempt a portion from taxation, sometimes only for retirees above a certain age or with income below certain thresholds. It generally depends on the state you live in when you take the distributions, but it can get confusing.” Read the full story here.

    Tax Problems?
    Millions of Americans today owe back taxes to the IRS. Unfortunately, when you owe back taxes regardless of the amount, the IRS will eventually put you into collections which starts with letters and leads to wage garnishments, bank levies, liens and so fourth. Once IRS issues get this far, you need help (or if it has not got to this point be proactive and seek help).

    Again from the IRS imposing tax liens to bank levies, wage garnishments to the IRS closing your business (if you are a business owner and / or seizure of your assets. The IRS is powerful at collections and has lot’s of collection tools that in many cases destroy individual, business and family finances. The good news is taxpayers also have a tremendous amount of tax resolution tools should you decide to exercise your rights. With the help of a tax resolution professional, you can keep the devastating effects from the IRS to a minimum and delay processes as needed. Here at 911 Tax Relief we feel it is our job to help you explore your options by listening and understanding your unique tax and current financial situation.

  • The IRS Can Increase Collections By Reducing the Time Between Balance Due Notices

    Tuesday 08th of November 2011 11:32:02 PM

    WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) could potentially collect additional revenue each year by reducing the time elapsed between notices it sends to taxpayers who owe taxes, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) concluded in a report publicly released today.

    The IRS sends a series of balance due notices to taxpayers with unpaid tax liabilities. TIGTA determined that the first notice was the most effective notice by a wide margin because the first notice closed the most cases, collected the most money, and generated the most taxpayer responses.

  • High Dollar Cases Are Going to the Field: Meaning More Scrutiny, Aggressive Collections and Quicker Resolution

    Wednesday 02nd of November 2011 6:00:05 PM

    This is HUGE news, Beginning, October 1st (yes it has already begun), the IRS is transferring all cases that were previously handled by the “High Dollar Unit” to local Revenue Officers out in the field. High Dollar cases are tax problems with more than $100,000 owed. You can expect an Army of very ambitious Revenue Officers to start aggressively collecting and make a name for themselves.
    So, the Offer in Compromise cases that were handled locally are now going back to the central Offer in Compromise units in Memphis and New York. The Army of IRS agents that handled these cases locally will now be assigned to the infamous High Dollar cases going out to local offices around the country. Again, this is a game changer and we can expect a lot of new activity.
    Essentially, the High Dollar Unit and the OIC Unit switched jobs. Now the High Dollar Unit cases are going to be handled locally in the field by Revenue Officers in offices close to where you live, scary. You can be certain about one thing, these cases are going to be handled swiftly and scrutinized more than ever. One positive is for clients that hire 911Tax Relief, we will be dealing directly with a person locally and have the opportunity to show the human side of the case that can make all the difference in the world.
