Divorced parents claiming same dependent could lead to audit

Filing taxes may seem like simply filling in certain information on the correct forms, but the chance exists for numerous issues to arise during filing. In some cases, a New York resident could face an audit if the IRS believes that something in that individual's information is incorrect or if some other problem arises. One issue in particular that could lead to a closer look is if a child is claimed as a dependent by more than one person.

3 practical tips for your IRS audit

It's the notice no one wants to receive; a brown envelope marked "Official Government Business." In some cases, it may be the first indicator you're getting audited. However, you shouldn't panic immediately.

Taxpayers shouldn't go it alone in court

If you're facing conflict with the IRS, you want someone good with numbers. Accountants indeed understand taxes better than most people. However, they don't always have the experience or skills to defend you against this Goliath.

Did tax avoidance actions lead to tax evasion accusations?

Taxes are complicated to address. Of course, most New York residents and those across the country want to do what they can to minimize the amount of taxes they owe. However, it is important to remember that certain measures to reduce taxes, like tax avoidance, are legal, and some actions, like tax evasion, are not.

Tax collections could stem from filing mistakes

Mistakes on tax forms are not necessarily uncommon. It can be complicated to file taxes correctly, even with the help of software or professionals. Of course, while some mistakes may have little consequence, others could lead the IRS to believe that a person owes more taxes than he or she paid, which could lead to tax collections.
