Tax Problems and Solutions Handbook
Each year it is estimated that over 20 million taxpayers have a tax issue or problem with the IRS. And the chances are, the path to resolving that tax problem is covered in the Tax Problems and Solutions Handbook. Working with the IRS can be complicated and frustrating even for the most knowledgeable tax professional. The rules in resolving tax problems often appear unclear and they change often, leaving tax professionals and taxpayers with no line-of-sight to resolving their tax problems. The Handbook provides the most current practical know-how to convey that line-of-sight. The Handbook will provide direction on how to resolve the most common IRS problems for individuals. The first section provides guidance on the most common post-filing actions: contacting and working with the IRS to obtain information and helping tax professionals practice effectively before the IRS. The remaining sections of the Handbook focus on each of the major tax problem categories: audits/underreported notices, collection issues, penalties, unfiled returns, and spousal issues. The issues in these categories constitute most of the problems for individual taxpayers. The book provides solutions to these problems.
