IRS to Target Tax Preparers Who’ve Failed to File their Own Returns
Our Tax Attorneys Explain The New Strategy IRS has for Tax Professionals
The IRS has announced a number of efforts recently to increase enforcement of tax compliance, and it has specifically said it will be going after high-earning tax filers, those who are trying to evade tax liability with micro-captive insurance schemes, and more. Democratic leaders have also proposed recently that the IRS get billions more dollars to increase enforcement.
Now, the IRS is announcing that it’s going to start going after the tax professionals who may be helping other people file their returns but who are not filing their own tax returns.
“The purpose of these contacts is to remind tax return preparers of their own tax filing and paying obligations and bring them into compliance,” the IRS said in a press release.
The tax preparers who are targeted will receive a letter letting them know that a revenue officer will reach out by telephone to discuss their case. During that conversation, the revenue officer will share information about the person’s tax obligation, how they can pay, and the consequences of failing to pay.
Tax preparers may feel like they know how to deal with this situation if it arises, but the truth is that even the tax professionals need a
Chandler tax attorney
to represent them in such scenarios. Tax attorneys know the law more intimately, and they can advise preparers about their options, as well as represent them in litigation.
