    I am considering becoming a tax attorney. I know that you need a 4 year degree in something like accounting, but I’m unsure of what graduate work you need..such as master’s of accountancy program, law school, some other grad school i’m not mentioning?…and also does it help much to be a CPA?

    I am about to launch an online gift basket site. It will have bagged food items and non-food items. Am I supposed to charge sales tax on the whole basket or just the non-food items within the basket? I think I may need a tax attorney. But i’d like to hear what you have to say…

    A strictly non-partisan question here. I’d like to hear from CPAs, tax attorneys, legislators (even IRS agents are welcome — for a change.) Please juxtapose your answers with the existing disclosure requirements for Federal Income Reporting. Liberal trolls (who don’t even understand the question) need not answer. Romney/Ryan supporters: No posters please. I already have more than you do – trust me. This question also posted in the Finance section.

    Consider the following two scenarios.

    1. Successful individual with six figure income and significant assets hires tax attorney/account to ensure every deduction and technique to reduce tax liability is explored and taken advantage.

    2. Same situation as above but individual encounters serious financial downturn due to job loss or failed investments. Decides to exercise bankruptcy protection and hires attorney to ensure he is able to protect as many of his assets as possible and reduce financial liabilities as allowed by the legal process.

    Both have acted legally. Is there an ethical difference between them? Is there an ethical duty to pay taxes as required by a democratically elected government? Is there an ethical duty to pay private debt? Is there a difference between the two?
    Good answer; I ask because I recently heard an argument that people who use bankruptcy law to their advantage to resolve a financial problem are unethical or immoral.

    I currently have a personal e*trade account. I would like to create a limited liability company whose sole purpose is to invest my money in securities-stocks, bonds, mutual funds. My personal e*trade account would be transferred to a new business account. Besides the asset protection, what are the other advantages to doing this. And of course, what are the disadvantages? Is this even possible? Legal? I know I should seek a tax attorney or accountant, but just a little advice would help me initially.

    I am going through a Tax Audit for a single
    Owner LLC schedule C for a couple categories. The first appointment was a few weeks back, and the next is coming this week.

    The tax attorney I hired had to “go out of town” unexpectedly the day before the last audit day, and had a colleague sit in. (He’s a one man shop). That attorney didn’t know anything about my case, and first day didn’t seem very productive.

    Now, my attorney hasn’t gone over most of my info as of today. He is supposed to go over it tomorrow, 2 days before the next audit day.

    Will switching Tax Attorneys prior to the next audit appoinent cause “Red Flags” to the irs examiner? I am just not very confident it my representatives services at this time.

    I’m new to this. I’m 20 years old I just started my own small business and I’d Like to know how I’d go about doing my taxes as apposed to an individual that works a regular job going to a place like H&R Block to have there taxes done. I really don’t know how to do taxes on my own but my older cousin does. As a business owner What special taxes am I required to pay, Do I have to keep a copy of the receipt for all of my sales transactions or can I just keep a written log of my total daily income? Since I don’t know how to do my own taxes can I still go to a place like H&R Block or would I need an accountant or Tax attorney to do them for me? Which form would I file is I for example made a total of under $50K for the year in a retail business? How would I go about paying my state taxes is it all apart of the same thing or will they send me a bill and I just pay them? As far as my employees once I set up the payroll system and I withhold the local and federal taxes from their checks what do I do with the money? On average does a business owner normally end up receiving a refund or do they have to pay more? What things can be used as tax write offs and to gain tax credits in the retail business? Also when people do there taxes do they have to report their bank accounts and do they have to pay taxes on interest gained from their savings accounts? Last; Normal working people have taxes withheld from every paycheck so would I only pay my taxes at the end of the year or all year long?

    -PS I’m going to try to get some of this information from my friends who’ve been self employed longer than me but I’m also trying to figure some of this out on my own.

    I use to have a pretty great job that paid $32k a year and i was young, 17 to be exact. I did not know anything about taxes and how the process work and i thought they were taking them out automatically. But little did i know i was going to get a 1099 which meant no taxes were being with held. I held on to this job for 3 years and never filed. Now i have a job making 20k a year and with holding taxes. I have been receiving notices from the irs for the past year in attempt to collect backed taxes for 2008 and 2009. One tax year on 31k I was billed 13k and anther for 29k i was billed 10k. I have a wife and children now and we live on a very tight budget since my current job pays 10k less per year. They took my tax return for this year and applied it to my backed taxes. I cannot afford to pay a the tax attorney 10k+ to handle issues. I also cannot afford $500 per tax year to file my returns. I am in a bad spot right now. I do not know what i should do to get myself out of this mess. Now i have received an intent to levy notice. I only make 20k per year what would they do to me and what are my options? Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

    I am currently an undergraduate studying accounting. I previously called myself pre-law, but have drifted away from that due to the horrible job market for law school graduates. However, I cannot put a dagger fully through the idea of law school and it occurs to me that this likely is only true for people with a JD and no other significant degree. I am interested in tax and I would like to know how the job market it for tax attorneys and other JDs in the business/tax/financial world.

    After 3 years as an Accounting Major, I have decided that I want to use my accounting degree towards becoming a Tax Attorney. Only problem is, I don’t know if I would have to study law before taking the LSAT exam. Or the procedure I could take in studying for the LSAT’s if i don’t get the chance to study law before I take the exam. Can anyone tell me the procedure towards becoming a tax attorney? Also could anyone tell me the procedure in the USA ( New York) as well as in England? Thank You!!!

    Long story short my husband filed taxes with Liberty Tax and they did it wrong assuring him that since I stopped working before we got married of 2012, we could file separately. When I went in to file they told me that was wrong and we would have to pay an amendment fee of $150 to fix THEIR MISTAKE. And just for living in NY I would now owe the state. My husband was charged $408 just to file alone! They wanted to charge me similar and they were charging another woman $900! When the woman looked concerned they said “oh no it doesn’t come out of your money, just the return”. Hmm…i was under the impression the return was a person’s money. I went to a tax attorney and he confirmed what I felt that we had been not only given wrong info but overcharged. Im trying to get the refund of the $408 which Liberty Tax promises on their contract they will return if youre unhappy. So far they refuse but offered to fix the problem for free or give us $100 and a vacation package. Why would I ever. I have complained to the corporate offices, they have no power, I wrote the local news, no response, I wrote the better business bureau and they got no response from liberty tax. This is infuriating, what can I do? The owner was so rude and when we complained actually said, “well then I guess you can take me to court”.any ideas?

    Had back tax amount of about 20 K…but had a major accident in 2011 and have been disabled because of the accident and unemployed. Just now settling with insurance company. Can the IRS take my settlement? Is it taxable? Can I set up once for all settlement via a good Tax Attorney? How good are the tax Attorneys that bombard the TV or would a local Tax lawyer be better?

    I know this is a lot of questions, but I want to be to be informed, do the right thing, and get closure!
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Its about a debt his ex-wife accrued over the years, she lied about making payments and now they are after him.
    The debt is clearly hers, shes a real estate agent.

    When I got home I had a message on my answer machine. He said it was a tax attorney, used my first and last name, and said that it was imperative for me to call him back before 5pm. The number was private on the caller ID, so I don’t have the number. This really freaks me out for some reason. Why woud a tax attorney contact me?
    I’m 22, my dad always does my taxes on turbo tax. Would this be about a bounced check? I was evicted from my apartment last month, would it be about that?
    Any information is greatly appreciated, maybe something to help my nerves.
    Thanks in advance.
    Okay, I’m a little more at ease now. It just scares me that he used the word “imperative” and he had my first and last name, how would he get that? I didn’t think a tax attorney would care about an eviction, but then I got paranoid that maybe I bounced a check or something.
    Thanks for the advice

    I now have a lien on record with the IRS for over $50k in back taxes, much of which is for penalties and interest. Do I need a tax attorney to negotiate with the IRS for me or can an accountant do the same thing? I’m assuming an accountant would cost less, otherwise it wouldn’t matter.

    on a complex tax matter . Legal fees would be equal or greater than the amount in question to fight it, so I wanted to do a offer in compromise to make the problem go away, but attorney won’t pay “Blood Money”. I’m caught in the middle. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.

    I have a tax debt I cannot pay and I am worried about the IRS garnishing my paycheck or taking my money in my bank account. How do I find someone that will help me settle this but won’t charge me too much? Also is an Enrolled Agent better than a CPA, or should I get a tax attorney? And for everyone who will say “you have enough money to pay for help but not your taxes,” $2500 is easier to come up with for help, then $45,000.

    Please help! My mom was the office manager for a small book store (1 owner, 7 employees). She paid the general bills and did payroll. The owner never filed his federal taxes over the course of his business. Now the IRS is after him (he is MIA) and my mom. She has now of course lost her job and the IRS has put a liene on her for the amount owed. Is this lawful? She was not an officer of the company/corporation…what can she do. Her car was repossesed last week and things are getting worse. Please help with any advise. Are there any pro bono tax attorneys out there? THANK YOU!
