Tax debt can mean you’ll be grounded

The IRS has adopted a relatively new method of forcing delinquent taxpayers to settle their debts. If you owe more than $53,000 in back taxes, you may be prohibited from renewing your passport or applying for a new passport.

Unemployment benefits are taxable income

Are you one of the millions of Americans who has been collecting unemployment benefits? If so, you should keep in mind that these benefits are considered to be taxable income. Understanding this fact now can help you avoid an unpleasant surprise in 2021.

Unfiled tax returns could lead to fees, penalties and collections

Dealing with taxes is something that many New York residents would rather avoid. Of course, if taxpayers do not file their returns or do not file them on time, they could face serious repercussions, typically in the form of monetary fines and penalties. In the event that a taxpayer does not file on time and does not pay owed taxes within a certain period, the IRS may start collections.

An offer in compromise can help resolve unpaid taxes

When you owe the IRS a significant amount of unpaid taxes, your situation can feel hopeless. After all, you can’t get blood from a stone, and you can’t get money from a depleted bank account. The good news is you may be able to resolve issues involving unpaid taxes without having to take a vow of poverty.

Not reporting income, significant credits could trigger an audit

Most New York residents want to avoid dealing with the IRS more than they absolutely have to. As a result, the majority of taxpayers want to do their best to avoid an audit. While a closer look at a person's tax return could happen for a variety of reasons, knowing a couple of the more common reasons could help taxpayers work to avoid too many questions.

Receiving notice of a delinquent tax return

The Internal Revenue Service uses numerous notices to contact taxpayers if the agency believes something is amiss with a taxpayer's return or tax balance. As a result, if New York residents receive a notice from the IRS, they may immediately feel a bit anxious and possibly confused about what the notice means. For instance, if a person receives a CP516 notice, it means he or she may have a delinquent tax return.

Accusations of a tax-related crime, like fraud, can cause panic

Any type of criminal accusation can have lasting effects on a person's life. If a New York resident is accused of a tax-related crime, the situation can be immensely complicated. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to understand exactly where one went wrong when facing such charges, so understanding tax fraud may be important to someone facing such allegations.
