Looking Back At Tax Season

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

So tax season is finally over, and now is the time to assess what went right and wrong in order to make a change for next year. 

We are the Strategic Tax Lawyers, a law firm that specializes in the IRS tax code.  Our team includes IRS Levy Attorneys and Taxation Attorneys with years of success as well as experience winning cases for clients with IRS-related problems.  We also have experience with the IRS Tax Leniency program


We want to share the things to prepare for next time when filing your taxes.  Each year, April 15th quickly approaches and taxpayers scatter to get their tax return submitted before the tax deadline.  Sometimes you may need more time to file your taxes and that is okay.  The IRS will grant you a 6 month extension by using IRS Free File via IRS.gov. However, the request needs to be made by midnight on April 15.  Taxes can be e-filed for free at any time up until October 15th, which many taxpayers are unaware of.  Also, if you want to file an extension, you need to mail Form 4868 by April 15th.  If you request an extension you will always have to make a payment to the IRS.  The extension does not mean you have more time to pay Uncle Sam. The IRS expects that you pay an estimate of what you owe to avoid a penalty and interest on the tax that you owe. 
The easiest, safest and fastest way to file your taxes, we believe, is online by IRS Direct Pay.  We like this since the IRS processes your tax return or extension immediately. They also have options for you to pay either via the phone.   

Also, the IRS really will work with you if you can’t pay all your tax liability.  The payment options, such as installment agreements are easy to apply for online via the IRS.gov website.  The IRS will also create a payment plan if you prove a financial hardship.

Before we know it, April 15, 2016 will be here and taxes will be due again.  Whether we like it or not, it happens every year.  The best approach to take is avoid common errors since it will delay your refunds or it could red flag the IRS about other tax problems.
