I have opted to jump into the deep end of the pool and start a blog. The purpose is to be able to share (hopefully) helpful information for visitors who are involved with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in an audit, collection or an appeal of a tax matter. I welcome comments and general questions.
This blog is NOT intended to provide personal guidance for an individual’s tax controversy. If such guidance is needed, then please contact me directly and we can discuss personalized consultation or even representation if the matter is serious enough to require that level of assistance.
This blog is not a place to rant and rave about the IRS and its activities. The agency employees are under a lot of stress due to the crazy budget restrictions imposed by a Congress gone astray! While there were certainly a group of employees who appear to have done something really stupid (in Cincinnati – relating to the 501(c)(4) applications leading up to the 2012 election), there was no justification to punish the entire agency. I hope to impart suggestions on how to get through various processes (collection, examination and appeals) with the least amount of financial bleeding!
This is my first blog, and I hope it turns out to be worth the time and effort I will be putting into it. Comments are always welcome.
