    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    When you owe money to the IRS, it is hard to think about anything else. While being in debt is never fun, no matter who the creditor is, the IRS enjoys almost unlimited power to collect the money they are due.

    Unlike your mortgage lender or credit card company, the Internal Revenue Service has the power to attach your wages, raid your bank account and even take your freedom. No other creditor even comes close in terms of its power and influence and taking on the agency on your own could be asking for trouble.

    Dealing with the IRS is a walk in the park for many people. They file a tax return each year with the help of a tax resolution expert and either enjoy a refund or pay the balance due.

Those challenges could be a result of a simple mistake—either on the part of the IRS or the taxpayer—or they may happen when you can’t pay the balance due, can’t pay on time, or your tax return is selected for audit.

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    A growing number of people are leaving the world of traditional employment behind. These are the folks who are opening their own small businesses, the people who are embracing freelancing and the men and women who are using gig work to make a good income.

    As this trend continues, many of those newly self-employed individuals are finding themselves at a loss, especially when tax season rolls around. One of the worst feelings is working so hard throughout the year, only to get blindsided by a huge tax bill you weren’t ready for.

    While traditional employees can rely on the companies they work for to withhold taxes and report their earnings to the IRS, the self-employed are expected to complete these actions on their own.

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

Instead of merely plugging in the numbers from your W2, you will need to gather multiple forms, crunch the numbers, seek out deductions and look for solutions to tax problems you did not even know existed.

  • Tax Relief Options for Small Business Owners

    Author: Ultimate Tax Relief |

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    If you are running a small business, you have one unwanted partner that will dig into your pocket every year, it’s the IRS. The IRS wants to know what you are doing, how much you are earning, and most importantly how much you are paying in taxes, and the tax agency is becoming increasingly aggressive in this regard. While the audit rate for individual returns has been hovering at far less than 1%, the audit rate for small businesses can be as much as 10 times higher.

    It does not matter if you operate as a sole proprietor and use Schedule C to claim your income or if you are set up as a C-corp, S-corp, or LLC - the IRS is watching what you do, and if they think you are not paying your fair share they will certainly come calling. When that demand letter from the IRS arrives, knowing what to do next can make all the difference, and the more you educate yourself the easier it will be to deal with and eliminate, the tax debt.

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    It is no wonder so many Americans dread the April 15 tax filing deadline. The U.S. tax code already contains more words than the Bible, and hundreds of pages of new rules and regulations are often added.

    With so much complexity, it is no wonder so many of us put off filing our taxes until the last possible minute, but taking that approach introduces its own stresses and can potentially land you in hot water with the IRS. What if you do not get it done on time? You can file for an extension, but you are still required to pay the taxes you owe plus penalties and interest. How do you know you didn't make a mistake with your last-minute tax filing? Something as simple as a mathematical error could increase the odds of an audit and put you in the crosshairs of the IRS.

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    Opening the mailbox and finding a letter from the IRS is frightening, but what happens next can be even scarier. The tax agency wields incredible power, and if they claim you owe additional taxes, they have many different options for forcing you to pay.

    When the IRS claims you owe additional money, they will act quickly, and that could leave you reeling, and trying hard to preserve the money you need to pay your bills, feed your family, and keep a roof over your head. If you are employed, the IRS can reach into your paycheck, forcing the company you work for to withhold part of what you are owed until the tax debt has been satisfied.

    The old saying that nothing is certain in life except death and taxes has never been truer, or more frightening. In the current environment, fear of the IRS is creeping in, and nothing will get your heart racing quite as fast as opening the mailbox and finding a letter from the tax agency.

    Cryptocurrency has become an incredibly popular way to invest, but the tax side of this virtual coin can be difficult to navigate. The IRS has gone back and forth over the years on its stance on cryptocurrency, making it confusing even for the most diligent investors.

  • Tips for Finding a Qualified Tax Resolution Firm

    Author: Ultimate Tax Relief |

    Blog by Ultimate Tax Relief

    Given how high the stakes are, it is surprising how little thought many people give to their taxes. All too often, individuals simply walk into a neighborhood storefront, hand over their most personal information and trust the person on the other side of the desk to do the right thing and prepare their taxes properly.

    In many cases that trust is well placed, and the individual preparing the taxes is indeed the honest and trustworthy professional they claim to be. In other cases, however, the trust is misplaced, and the tax preparer will end up making mistakes that could cost the individual a great deal. If an audit is triggered by a deliberate misrepresentation or unintentional mistake, you will still be on the hook for any additional taxes, interest and penalties.

    Fixing your taxation can be a challenging task for people who do not know much about the process.

If people try to handle the process themselves, they might struggle with the always-changing rules, which can be quite unfortunate because they could make some mistakes there. Additionally, there are schemes and rebates that they could claim, but they might not be able to if they are unsure about them.
