Connecticut residents should understand audits

The hardworking residents of Danbury, Connecticut (Fairfield County), work hard and pay their taxes. However, there may be instances when taxes are miscalculated or otherwise inadvertently underpaid. If the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) feels that there is a discrepancy between the amount that was due in one or more years and the amount that was paid for those years, they may launch an audit. For that reason, it is important to know some details about the audit process.

Actions you take in filing your taxes that may get you audited

Whether you've attempted to do your own taxes online or have submitted a complex filing due to owning diverse assets, the risk of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit is real for everyone. This may lead you wondering what type information is most apt to get the IRS' attention.

Be careful not to make these tax filing mistakes

Tax season alone, whether you’re doing the paperwork for a business or for yourself, can bring a long of anxiety. During this time you collect all your paperwork, sort through the numbers and try to figure what your financial picture looked like last year. This can be extremely time-consuming and tedious.

Does the IRS have special summons power to investigate you?

The power of the IRS summons might surprise you. Whereas a warrant request typically must name a specific person, the IRS has been allowed to request a summons for a whole category of taxpayers, without specifically naming them. The so-called John Doe summons, issued to IRS examiners, allows the IRS to obtain the names of individual taxpayers.

Good record keeping may help your business survive a tax audit

A business must keep good records for practical reasons like tracking inventory and revenues, and simply to know whether its operations are “in the black.” However, the advice of an IRS publication is equally wise: Good business records may even stave off a tax audit.

An attorney can help small business owners comply with tax rules

Small business owners might utilize a number of do-it-yourself online resources in their operations. When it comes to tax liabilities, however, it is important to understand the potential limitations of online tax preparation programs or legal sites.
