3 Instances, when hiring a tax relief professional is the only way to go.When it comes to your money, there’s only one person that truly has your best interests at heart - and that person is looking back at you in the mirror. Handling your own finances and making your own decisions can give you peace of mind and help you avoid a costly mistake. There is a lot to be said for the do-it-yourself approach to your money, yet the go it alone path does have its limitations, especially when it comes to the IRS and back taxes. #1 You Just Received a Major WindfallEven if you know how to handle your finances, receiving a major windfall can throw your plans for a loop.

Whenever a buyer finances their purchase with a mortgage loan, the lender requires a home appraisal. If the property's appraised value falls below the agreed-upon price, your sale may fall through. So, as the seller, you want to make sure your property is in tip-top shape before the appraiser comes through. Once you get into the escrow phase of the sale, you need to go through your home once again to ensure it looks great for the appraiser. That includes cleaning it until everything sparkles. Home Appraisal: Does Extra Clean Add Extra Value?Bottom line? No, cleanliness technically does not affect your appraised value. However, a spotless home creates a mindset with the appraiser similar to the one it creates with a buyer. Starting off with a positive impression never hurts. Plus, it mak...

 Personal Time:  Our business can be a huge mental drain. Make sure you have something outside of work to shut work off and have it on your schedule as an appointment. If you do not, you will burn out. For me #1 is sailing and a close second is wood working. “Me Time” is important for your mental health. I could write volumes about this topic… simply put: Find something for YOU and make time for it.                                                                                                                          FED: The Federal reserve announced at 2pm yesterday a 75 basis point increase in Fed Funds (as anticipated) and they also confirmed they will continue to reduce their balance sheet and “ongoing rate hikes are appropriate”.

Have you received letters from IRS? Are you asking yourself why all of these penalties?By representing many taxpayers in Mount Laurel and the rest of New Jersey, my clients always ask me “why the penalty?”when a taxpayer knows that there will be a penalty for: Not Filling Not Paying Not Depositing Not Providing the correct numbers on your tax return  They will be penalized, most taxpayers will pay attention. Filling and paying  your tax return, then depositing on time is voluntary compliance. Basically if there is no penalty, why would any taxpayer file and pay on time. Penalty  conserve IRS’s resources if they have to chase non-filers for not filling and paying on time.Penalty is not to punish taxpayers. Why would good taxpayers go out of their way to keep good records, file and pay th...

I represent taxpayers in Mount Laurel and the rest of New Jersey. Many taxpayers have been asking me about some of the IRS Audit Notices they have been receiving. I think it is best I write a blog  with the various audit notices and letters used in an IRS examination.The Examination Opening Letter 2205-AThis is the letter that informs the taxpayer that they have been selected for an examination. It advises the taxpayer that they can be represented by a Power of Attorney ( meaning a CPA, EA or attorney), and that they should begin gathering their records in preparation for the examination.The information Document Request (“IDR”) Form 4564An IDR is where the IRS request documentation and information it perceives is necessary to review the tax return. It is not unusual for there to be seve...

In Mount Laurel, New Jersey many taxpayers have asked me similar questions about IRS Audits and how it works. Here are some of the questions:How far back can the IRS go to audit my return?Generally, the IRS can include returns filed within the last three years in an audit. This time limit is often referred to as the “ASED” If the IRS believes that fraud has been committed they may be able to pursue earlier years.How long does an audit take?The length varies depending on the type of audit; the complexity of the issues; the availability of information requested; the availability of both parties for scheduling meetings; and your agreement or disagreement with the findings.What are your rights when dealing with the IRS?IRS Publication 1, Your Right as a Taxpayer, explains your rights as a t...

I represent taxpayers in Mercer County and the rest of New Jersey with tax problems that need to be resolved.You've ignored the IRS's repeated notices that your paychecks will be garnished for past-due taxes, and now you're in a panic because you need those dollars.There are, however, alternatives open to you. If you pay your outstanding tax debt or enter into a collection agreement or explanation to the IRS that the garnishment is placing you into financial hardship, the IRS may lift a wage garnishment. Are all of your wages subject to the levy?Nope, and there is positive news for taxpayers with wage garnishment. Based on your standard deduction and the number of dependents, some of your wages may be free from wage levies. Certain other income, such as some pension and annuity payments...

Being that I represent taxpayers in Mount Laurel and the rest of New Jersey, when it comes to IRS Audits some of the commonly asked questions are as followed : Why am I being selected for an audit? Just because you have been selected for an audit does not mean you have done anything wrong. The IRS can do random selection and computer screening, as sometimes, as sometimes returns are selected based solely on a statistical formula. The IRS compares your return against “norms” for similar returns that it develops from audits of a statistically valid random sample of returns, as part of the National Research Program the IRS conducts.    How will you be notified? If the IRS selects your return for examination it will inform you by mail. It won’t initiate an audit by telephone or email.   How...
