Am I on the hook for my spouse's unreported income?

The IRS is well-known for aggressively pursuing taxpayers whom the agency has determined owe additional taxes. This is especially true when the IRS feels that the taxpayer was less than forthcoming about their income or deductions or, in its view, tried to game the system. It comes as no surprise then that the IRS will, if possible, pursue both the taxpayer and the taxpayer's spouse if it is able to do so.

Famous New York electronics store sued for sales tax evasion

A famous photo, video and electronics store that is well-known as a Manhattan institution, B&H Foto & Electronics Corp, is now facing a lawsuit filed by the New York state Attorney General. The suit alleges that the store has been evading sales tax for years and owes the state's treasury over $7 million. The case illustrates how complicated sales tax civil litigation can, as the business and the government have two very different opinions about the case.

An overview of the sales and use tax

Like other states, New York imposes a tax on the sale of certain retail goods and services. Also like other states, the law allows cities and other local governments within New York to impose their own additional sales taxes.

Making tax repayment arrangements with the state

Our law office has previously discussed how New Yorkers who wind up owing the IRS back tax payments can work with the IRS in order to repay those taxes without being reduced to poverty. t is important, however, that taxpayers in and around White Plains not lose sight of the fact that state and local authorities also impose taxes on citizens. As with the federal government, the State of New York has a Department dedicated to collecting tax revenue that goes unpaid for whatever reason.
