Lafaytte Colorado Home Showings Down 75%Showing data for Lafayette, Colorado, a popular bedroom community to Boulder shows home viewings have plummeted.  Now, some of this is due to the most recent guidance from the state of Colorado regarding what is and is not an essential service.Governor Polis Says Home Showings Are Not EssentialThe most up to date guidance dissuades in person home showings. These are not considered essential. In fact, a home showing just requires too many people to be at risk. The home's owners and/or occupants have to leave - so they might go somewhere and risk coming into contact with Covid-19.  The Realtors doing the showing are at risk.  An agent might get too close to someone that is an asymptomatic carrier.  Or the agent could be shedding virus.  And the home...

I focus my practice on tax resolution, representing taxpayers in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, California and elsewhere. Recently I had a client who owed less than $50,000 and wanted to set up an installment agreement, but also wanted to avoid getting hit with a tax lien filing. Generally, this is done by doing what is called a direct debit installment agreement, where forms are sent into the IRS, and once all documentation is processed, the IRS automatically withdraws the money out of your bank account.After properly setting up the agreement, we all thought it was a done deal. I was told by the IRS agent that the client would receive documentation by mail in 10-14 days regarding the agreement, and the payments would be automatically withdrawn starting the next month. Excellent. B...

I focus my practice on tax resolution, representing taxpayers in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, California and elsewhere. The single biggest thing you can (and NEED) to do is get into compliance (ie - file your tax returns).  The IRS simply will not deal with you or speak to you unless they have the returns to work off of.Ideally, no matter what your tax filing situation is, the ultimate goal is pretty straight forward: file all of your back returns (typically the six most recent prior years), and deal with whatever amounts you owe for those years. There are several collection alternatives to resolve your situation such as an installment agreement and non collectible status. Equally important is getting up to date with your current year taxes. Just because your prior years have bee...

I focus my practice on tax resolution, representing taxpayers in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, California and elsewhere. I frequently hear the question: "I need to file my taxes, but I owe the IRS and state and don't have the money to pay. What do I do?"The answer to that question is: even if you do owe, file your tax return on time! The reason is this - many people don’t realize that the IRS charges a penalty of up to 25% just for filing your tax return late. That’s right - you will get hit with an additional 25% of what you owe if you miss the deadline for filing individual tax returns. What most people don't know is that you can file ANY tax return on time and avoid the 25% penalty even if you don't send in the money that is owed on the return. Did you also know that, even if y...

As a top Berkshire Hathaway agent, specializing in the North Denver suburbs and Boulder County, I often work with professionals that are relocating to jobs in Boulder Colorado.  In recent years, Boulder has become a hotbed for job seekers in fields such as IT, Biotech, and Academia.    Along with its new reputation as one of the nation’s most coveted places for tech professionals to work and live, has also come skyrocketing home prices.   However, many of the newly transplanted professionals experience extreme sticker shock, when they realize just how pricey Boulder real estate is.   With the average price of a single-family home in Boulder hovering just north of a million dollars now, all but the highest paid professionals quickly realize that they may have to settle for a commute.  Ne...
