Don’t make your tax problem WORSE by hiring the wrong firm. You hear the tax relief advertisements on TV, radio and internet of these unknown companies promising that they can eliminate your tax debt and settle for “pennies on the dollar”. These tax relief companies claim to be the biggest, largest, etc. You end up speaking to an unlicensed sales person, not a lawyer, EA or CPA that puts so much pressure on you to pay them and hire them; I call them sales organizations as they are not tax or law firms, but scammers that prey on innocent taxpayers like you.

Watch out! Don’t fall for scams and make your exiting tax problem even worse.

The IRS released a new draft version of the 2018 Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. The new Form is markedly different from the 2017 version of the form and would replace the current Form 1040, as well as the Form 1040A and the Form 1040EZ.

However, this reduction in length is countered by the fact that the draft form has six new accompanying schedules.

If you were to ask most Angelenos in SoCal, or around the country, what would the worst thing you could receive in the mail, chances are at least 90% of the people you asked would say that getting an audit letter from the IRS, FTB, EDD, CDTFA, BOE or on much misinformation that is circulating around the internet.

The Internal Revenue Service or IRS and the State Tax agency, FTB, EDD, CDTFA, BOE for your state are responsible for collecting the tax revenue that is owed to the Federal Government and State Government, respectively, based on the applicable tax codes. Along with that goes all of the necessary power that it needs in order to execute its responsibilities.

When the IRS has identified those individuals or businesses in greater Los Angeles, or any other metro city in America, who they are needing to bring in for a formal one on one interview with, they will send out a formal letter stating that the person or business receiving the letter is being audited. It is this letter that seems to strike fear in the hearts and minds of most everyone.

The average person only has a 1 percent chance of being selected for an IRS audit. That’s one drawing you don’t want to win! If you have been chosen, though, it’s important not to panic. How you respond to an IRS audit request can have a big impact on the outcome of the process in your tax defense.

While an IRS audit is undoubtedly stressful and can be a painful, lengthy process in some cases, following these tips will help you get through it:

  1. Read the letter carefully

Not every notice from the IRS is an official audit, but it’s easy to panic when a letter arrives from them. Take your time to read the letter from start to finish. If they are simply requesting verification of something in your taxes, provide the information promptly.

Congress appears poised to enact a major tax reform law that could potentially make fundamental changes in the way you and your family calculate your federal income tax bill, and the amount of federal tax you will pay.

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.
