Sit-Com Tax Audit

Posted by taxguru on April 18, 2010

I recently came across an amusing sitcom from Canada called Less Than Kind. In the third episode of the first season, the main family is subjected to a Federal income tax audit that could very easily be taking place in the USA. Some funny examples of how not to handle things, such as literally baking receipts in the oven.

I edited my copy of the episode down to just the audit scenes and uploaded it to YouTube.

Screwing with the IRS

Posted by taxguru on December 13, 2009

Last week’s episode of Nip/Tuck had an encounter between one of the plastic surgeons and an IRS auditor unlike any I have have ever seen or heard of. It’s wacky enough to amuse taxpayers, tax pros, and IRS employees.

Record keeping requirements – Good summary of rules from the California FTB that apply for IRS purposes as well. Calif. taxpayers need to be sure to catch the fact that the statute of limitations (SOL) for FTB to come after you is four years after filing a tax return, one year longer than IRS has.  FTB is sneaky in exploiting that extra year.  I have seen plenty of cases where people had tossed their records after the IRS’s three years SOL had expired, only to be unable to defend themselves against FTB assessments. With the current budgetary disasters in Sacramento, we can expect FTB to pull out all of the stops in regard to squeezing every last dime out of people, whether they really owe the money or not.
