Why the Comptroller's Office calls a new tax law a 'game-changer'

In our post last week, we discussed how the principal duty of the Comptroller of Maryland's office is the collection of taxes and how it has a host of tools at its disposal to assist with the fulfillment of this duty. Indeed, the agency collects an astounding $16 billion per year armed with a budget of only $110 million.

Foreign bank accounts could draw the interest of the IRS

Tax season is upon us, with the annual filing deadline steady approaching. For those with greater assets, the risks of over payment of taxes, as well as the risk of an audit, are ever-present concerns. You probably have someone who handles your finances and investments, as well as someone who specializes in taxes on your payroll.

How to Minimize the Consequences of Tax Crimes in Maryland

Paying taxes is not a hobby to anyone. The greatest number of Americans pay taxes to avoid the grave consequences of federal tax crimes. Others devise strategies of eliminating or avoiding taxes within the legal framework. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of the US audits some of the returns submitted by businesses and individuals every year. If your returns reveal some irregularities, the IRS agents target you, and they launch investigations.

New IRS data filters caught $4.1 billion in suspected tax fraud

The IRS added 23 new data elements to its tax return computer system filters this past tax season. The objective of these enhanced features was to locate instances of identity-theft related tax fraud. These efforts are being made to protect taxpayers from identity theft and prevent fraudulent tax returns from being filed.

CPA or lawyer: Who do you need for your tax issue?

When you have a tax issue to resolve, it can be difficult to know if the matter is best resolved through a certified public accountant (CPA) or a qualified tax attorney. In most situations, the particular circumstances will determine if one or the other, or both, are needed.

When the IRS comes calling, ask for your attorney

Special agents from the IRS Criminal Investigation Division want to talk to you. What do you do? In an effort to seem cooperative, you may agree to answer their questions. This is often a mistake. In fact, the wisest approach is the same as it would be for law enforcement - politely decline and say you need to talk to your attorney.
