IRS stepping up enforcement of "nanny tax"

Maryland residents may not think much of paying a household worker in cash. However, it may be a mistake to not withhold payroll taxes for those who made more than $2,000 in either 2016 or 2017. While children and parents are exempt from this requirement, others such as maids and gardeners may be subject to the nanny tax. Those who are classified as independent contractors will pay their own taxes at the end of the year.

How to avoid serious IRS penalties

A Maryland resident who owes money to the IRS could lose the ability to leave the country. The IRS can ask the State Department to not issue a passport or to decline to renew an existing passport. Typically, the IRS will only do this if an individual owes $50,000 or more in back taxes or more than $50,000 after penalties and interest are accounted for.

You do have tax resolution options: The Offer in Compromise

Since its inception, our blog has dedicated considerable time to discussing the many tools or "enforcement options" the Internal Revenue Service has at its disposal.

Why you don't have to feel powerless against tax authorities

Indeed, you'd probably be reluctant to open this unanticipated correspondence, fearful of whatever presumably bad news was contained on the pages within.

Tax obligations and vacation property

It may come as an unwelcome surprise to learn that we're already approaching the midpoint of summer. While this is never really a welcome reality -- especially for those of us who live in areas with long winters -- the good news is that there is still plenty of time left for vacations and other warm weather activities.

Why are Baltimore County residents being told to disregard property tax bills?

While there is perhaps no better feeling than owning your home or the structure in which you conduct your business, this possession of real property comes with a host of real responsibilities. Indeed, not only is it your responsibility to make repairs and secure insurance, it's also your responsibility to pay both the mortgage and, of course, property taxes.

A closer look at the enforcement options Maryland uses to collect tax debt - III

In a series of ongoing posts, our blog has been examining how it's not just the Internal Revenue Service that has a host of collection options at its disposal, but also the Comptroller of Maryland. To that end, we've been exploring just how deep the agency's toolbox is, with those who have not made or are unable to make payment arrangements facing everything from interest and penalty charges to salary liens.

Understanding state income tax obligations: Corporations

When a group of entrepreneurs comes together with a shared vision for a product or service for which they believe there is a real demand, it can prove to be an exciting time. That's because there will be testing to undertake, financing to arrange, employees to hire, space to rent, and even shelves to stock.

A closer look at the enforcement options Maryland uses to collect tax debt - II

Earlier this month, our blog spent some time discussing how those individuals who find themselves in the unenviable position of not having made payment arrangements with the Comptroller of Maryland's office or being unable to comply with these arrangements should know that the agency will not hesitate to pursue one -- or several -- enforcement actions.
