IRS Urges Travelers Requiring Passports to Pay Their Back Taxes or Enter into Payment Agreements;

People Owing $51,000 or More Covered

The Internal Revenue Service today strongly encouraged taxpayers who are seriously behind on their taxes to pay what they owe or enter into a payment agreement with the IRS to avoid putting their passports in jeopardy.

This month, the IRS will begin implementation of new procedures affecting individuals with “seriously delinquent tax debts.” These new procedures implement provisions of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, signed into law in December 2015. The FAST Act requires the IRS to notify the State Department of taxpayers the IRS has certified as owing a seriously delinquent tax debt. See Notice 2018-1. The FAST Act also requires the State Department to deny their passport application or deny renewal of their passport. In some cases, the State Department may revoke their passport.

Dear Client:

As the end of the year approaches, it is a good time to think of planning moves that will help lower your tax bill for this year and possibly the next. Factors that compound the planning challenge this year include political and economic uncertainty, and Congress’s all too familiar failure to act on a number of important tax breaks that will expire at the end of 2016.

Checking Up on the Affordable Care Act

By Rande Spiegelman

SOURCE: SCHWAB

 With all the commentary and debate surrounding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” it can be difficult to figure out what to expect as an individual. The effects of the new law will vary from person to person and state to state, but as investors, we should pay particular attention to five key tax changes.

Once you come to know that your tax return is to be audited by the IRS, panicking will be your first instinct. There will be no need for panicking if you seek professional help. Mike Habib is a  tax professional and will help you in preparing for the IRS tax audit and ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome.  Generally, it is a proven fact that individuals must not handle the proceedings of audits themselves. The reason for this is that individuals aren’t aware about the IRS and their proceedings; they may even give out certain information that can open up an even more thorough investigation.

Taxation is the area in which there can’t be any error, especially if it’s a business. There are so many mistakes an individual can possibly make like penalties, interest and additional taxes. Poor record keeping can result in an audit which is quite an expensive and time consuming procedure. An audit can lead to penalties which can further cause you to lose money. This is the reason why hiring a tax professional is better as compared to doing your taxes yourself.

If you haven’t filed taxes for a few years, first and foremost, take a big breath. It’s not great news, but it’s not the end of the world either. You might like to know that you are not alone; there are roughly 6 million non-filers in the U.S every year. There are many reasons people do not file, with IRS research showing that often people do not file in years that they have status changes, like the death of a spouse or a divorce. Emotional and financial hardships are also cited as reasons that people do not file their tax returns on time. There are also people who have simply procrastinated.

No matter what the reason, you need to know that the only way to deal with the back taxes is to get compliant and file your taxes. There’s no way around it. If you don’t, the IRS will determine what they think you should pay, and they will begin to put penalties and interest on top of what they estimate your tax liability to be.

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.
