Do you need to report an offshore account?

If you had one or several accounts outside the U.S. that had more than a combined amount of $10,000 at any time over the year, you probably need to file. The Report of Foreign Banks and Financial Accounts (FBAR), FinCEN Form 114 needs to be electronically filed with the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Business losses: Can you deduct them against other income?

Every so often the tax court rules on a case with interesting facts. The distinction between a business and a hobby is often the topic in these cases. A business loss can be deducted, but a hobby loss cannot. Get this wrong and you could owe a large tax bill.

A person generally doesn't want more of their hard-earned money being transferred from them to the government through taxes than is supposed to under the law. Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service sometimes collects from a person a tax that they didn't actually, under the law, owe. Such an over-collection can be very unsettling for a taxpayer and leave them wondering what they can do.
