Articles Posted in IRS Notice

When a tax return’s information doesn’t match data reported (such as W2’s, 1099’s, 1098’s) to the IRS by employers, banks, investment broker and other third parties, the IRS will send a letter / notice to the taxpayer. The letter is called an IRS Notice CP 2000, and it gives detailed breakdown information about issues the IRS identified and provides steps taxpayers should take to resolve those issues.

The taxpayer must address these issues timely, failure to do so will result in an assessment of additional taxes, interest and penalties. It’s almost like a “grey-area” correspondence audit.

IRS tax lien

Are you receiving calls, postcards and letters regarding your IRS tax lien? Are telemarketers bombarding you with telephone calls to settle your back tax debt?

Many of these  solicitors you are not actually licensed to represent you before the IRS, they are not tax attorneys, nor CPAs, nor EAs.  

 

See our popular “beware report” HERE.

Learn about the IRS fresh start initiative program below.

The IRS is actively and aggressively pursuing individual and business taxpayers with aggressive collection actions. IRS enforcement could be in the form of a tax lien, where the IRS files a lien at your county recorder’s office as a public record so the taxpayer cannot sell assets or property without paying their taxes, penalties and interest.

The IRS also enforces collection actions through tax levy and tax garnishment actions against the taxpayer paycheck and bank accounts. Taxpayers should avoid these enforcement actions by resolving their back tax matter with the IRS.

On July 31, 2015, President Obama signed into law P.L. 114-41, the “Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015.” Although this new law was primarily designed as a 3-month stopgap extension of the Highway Trust Fund and related measures, it includes a number of important tax provisions, including revised due dates for partnership and C corporation returns and revised extended due dates for some returns. This letter provides an overview of these provisions, which may have an impact on you, your family, or your business.

If you received a letter that reads ‘IRS Letter 1058/LT11’, know that it is a final notice from the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) reminding you about the balance you still owe. Moreover, if you do not resolve your delinquent matter, they will make an attempt to levy your bank accounts, garnish wages and other assets within the next thirty days. In most cases, a CP 504 (a final notice of your due balance) is sent before the IRS Letter 1058. Ideally, IRS Letter 1058/LT11 is more formal than other notices that you may have received by now. It will tell you that they will also be looking for other assets you own that can be levied. By then, you should have received prior notices that should have been addressed.

The United States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, today rejected the IRS appeal in the case of Loving v. IRS in which three independent tax return preparers argued that the IRS had overstepped its authority when implementing the Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) program.
The RTRP program was created to regulate paid tax preparers other than those already under Circular 230’s regulatory structure such as Enrolled Agents, certified public accountants and attorneys. The program required other paid preparers to register with the IRS, pass a competency test and complete specified continuing education annually.

If you are contacted by the IRS, they usually send you a notice to call, or pay an unpaid tax amount. Most taxpayers are confused as to what the notice is for, or what does it really mean.

Some of the Individual CP notices the IRS sends are:
• CP09, Earned Income Credit You May Be Entitled To From IRS: Informs the recipient that, based on information reported on the tax return, he or she may qualify to take the Earned Income Credit.
• CP10, Changes to Tax Return, Reduced Amount Applied to Next Year’s Estimated Tax:Informs the recipient of one or more changes made to his or her individual income tax return. The changes resulted in a reduced amount being applied to the following year’s estimated tax.

Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
★★★★★
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
★★★★★
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
