Begin preparing for an audit soon after receiving notice

Receiving a notice from the IRS is something that many people feel nervous about. It can certainly be difficult for any New York resident to learn that he or she is facing an audit. Unfortunately, it is all too easy to make errors when filing taxes, and these mistakes could easily raise red flags with the government agency.

Facing collections for tax debt make some vulnerable to scams

Facing any type of financial debt is difficult. It can weigh on anyone's mind and leave people constantly wondering what to do. Some New York residents may face collections due to having tax-related debt, and this type of debt may bring about even more stress and anxiety. As a result, some people may look for relief anywhere.

Criminal charges result from sales tax issues

Money problems can quickly spiral out of control. Some people may begin to have financial troubles and soon feel unable to handle important matters, such as paying taxes. Unfortunately, if New York residents are suspected of not properly handling their tax-related matters, criminal charges could result.

What is innocent spouse relief relating to a joint tax return?

When filing their taxes, most married couples in New York choose to file jointly. This common practice can offer benefits when it comes to utilizing credits and deductions available for specific couples. However, if one spouse or a former spouse omits information or improperly claims deductions on a joint return, the IRS may flag a problem with the return. Often, this means that the couple is liable for the taxes, interest and penalties that result. Fortunately, some parties may qualify for innocent spouse relief.

Not filing a tax return could lead to complications

The issues that can come about relating to tax matters are, unfortunately, numerous. Some New York residents may simply want to pass up the task of filing their tax paperwork altogether, but that is not necessarily a wise choice. The IRS can still attempt to collect taxes even if a person does not file a tax return, which is less than ideal.
