What the IRS may do about unfiled tax returns

Most Massachusetts residents would agree that they do not want to owe money to the government. Some people will avoid that possibility by not even filing their taxes. The problem with that is that when people have unfiled tax returns, they could fail to receive refunds or end up on the IRS's radar for unpaid taxes. While one of those options may not be so bad, failing to meet this financial obligation could prove expensive.

Considering back taxes and bankruptcy as a debt relief option

Massachusetts residents probably do not like owing money to anyone, but unfortunately, it seems to be a fact of life, especially during the current circumstances. If you find yourself in this predicament, you may owe back taxes along with other debt you cannot pay, and you may have questions about taxes and bankruptcy and wonder if it could help in your situation. The problem is that you heard that taxes cannot be discharged through bankruptcy, but is that always the case?

There is no need to face tax collection cases alone

There is no way around the fact that the Internal Revenue Service has a great deal of power. When it comes to tax collection cases initiated against people across the country and here in Massachusetts, the agency can do more than just assess penalties and interest. The IRS can even conduct criminal investigations that could threaten the freedom of the taxpayers in its sights.

Tax situations that could lead to tax audits

Like people across the country, the last thing most Massachusetts residents want to do is end up on the radar of the IRS. Of course, the agency does not necessarily have to have a reason to begin an audit, but taxpayers certainly do not want to give it one. Unfortunately, some situations could lead to tax audits if filers are not careful.

Are you afraid your unfiled tax returns will cause you trouble?

It is a new year, and April 15 will creep up on many Boston residents before they know it. Are you dreading tax day because you have unfiled tax returns that you need to address? You may find that enlisting some assistance could help take the sting out of making up for lost time. 

Tax audits have changed in recent years

Most people across the country, including many here in Massachusetts, do not want to check their mail and see an envelope from the IRS. Rarely are these letters good news. Instead, they are often notices indicating that something is wrong or that the individuals receiving them are subject to tax audits.

Recent tax court litigation could affect many taxpayers

Many Massachusetts residents work outside the country. As such, they can take advantage of certain tax rules to save money, but it requires filing their personal income tax returns in a specific manner. However, without the proper assistance, it could be easy to make mistakes. The IRS may forgive certain inadvertent and/or immaterial errors, but recent tax court litigation could make it more of a challenge to make that claim.

Some foreign bank accounts violate the law

Like people across the country, many people here in Massachusetts do what they can to avoid paying too much in taxes. Some of them may consult with self-styled financial gurus in order to make that happen. Many times, those consultants end up involving otherwise innocent taxpayers in offshore tax schemes that end up getting them in trouble with the IRS. Many of these foreign bank accounts violate the law.
