You can’t miss what you’ve never known…

Posted by taxguru on April 28, 2011

From last night’s Leno show via NewsMax:

It’s the 75th anniversary of the introduction of Social Security checks. For the younger viewers who don’t know what a Social Security check is, you’ll never see one in your lifetime, so don’t worry about it.

The "evil rich" already pay too many taxes…

Posted by taxguru on April 23, 2011

As the mantra grows to soak the evil rich with even more taxes to pay for the overspending by the crooks in DC, it’s good to have this reminder that those defined as rich already pay almost all of the income taxes in this country. 

If the tax rates are increased, the actual dollar amounts paid to IRS will go down because those “evil rich” folks will stop earning as much money and will become more aggressive in using the tax savings tactics that we client minded tax pros advise.

TaxMasters Accused of Fraud and Deception

State AG says ‘Tax Lady’ Roni Deutch should be jailed for contempt  

No sympathy here.  It has been frustrating the past few years, seeing the growing number of scammers advertising their supposedly top secret and unique services for settling up past tax debts with IRS.  Some of them have even approached me about advertising on our websites and referring people to them for a referral fee.  

As anyone capable of using Google can easily see, these services take money from desperate people, do nothing to help them, and leave them even worse off with the tax agencies.  Any competent professional tax advisor can help people work on arranging a payment plan or an Offer In Compromise with IRS for far less than the thousands these scam services charge.  It’s good to see these scammers being nailed by the authorities.
