Remote work has become increasingly popular. According to a survey, about one out of four Americans worked from home in 2021. If you want to join the ranks of remote workers or if you own a small business, it's time to think about your home office. When you need a new or upgraded workspace, you have three options: create a space for work, build an addition, or expand to a bigger place. What to Do Without a Home OfficeNot everyone has the extra room for a home office. Some remote workers choose to convert the dining room into an office or place a desk behind the floating sofa. They may take an empty closet, remove the doors, and place a desk within it to create a makeshift office. There's no limit on what you can convert into a home office with the right amount of creativity and ingenuit...

Over the past 18 months, many hardworking people and businesses have suffered economic losses through no fault of their own.  Some have failed to file tax returns or even pay their taxes.  During the pandemic, the IRS temporarily ceased collection activity.  Due to increased funding and a need to pay for some government actions, the IRS is ramping up their collection efforts.  Using a myriad of techniques including artificial intelligence (AI), the IRS is identifying and pursuing high income (over $100,000 income) non-filers. The IRS is a collection agency, they have many tools at their disposal, the most effective of which are liens and levies.   So, what happens when your client’s assets are encumbered by a Notice of Federal Tax Lien, and they want to sell their house?Take a deep brea...

I represent taxpayers in Minneapolis, Minnesota and all the 50 States in the United State before all administrative levels—examination, collection, and appeals—of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).If a taxpayer owes money to the IRS, there is already a tax lien against them and all their assets, including those assets they acquire in the future.  The IRS often files a public notice to let all other creditors know that money will be paid to the IRS first, and that other unsecured creditors will be behind the IRS in priority. This filing is referred to as a Notice of Federal Tax Lien (NFTL), which is a public document filed to alert third parties that the taxpayer owes the IRS money.There are few options to get a lien remove so that a taxpayer you can their sell your home or refinance ev...

Offer in Compromise (OIC) is a program administered by the Internal Revenue Service which allows taxpayers to settle their tax debt for less than the full amount they owe— essentially allowing them a fresh start with the IRS.In the past years, more than 50% of OIC applications received by the IRS are rejected. Here is a quick guideline to determine if you a good candidate for an Offer in Compromise.1. Taxpayers not in compliance i.e If the taxpayer is not current with the current tax obligations like estimated tax payments, payroll  taxes, have unfiled tax returns.The taxpayer is not a good candidate for  OIC. Furthermore, the taxpayer have to be in tax compliance and main compliance for next 5 years after the offer have been accepted. 2. The taxpayer have the ability to fully pay the t...

 I represent taxpayers in Minneapolis, Minnesota and all the 50 States in the United State before all administrative levels—examination, collection, and appeals—of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).Contrary to popular belief that the IRS will not allow you to sell a house that has a tax lien, you can definitely sell a house with an IRS Tax Lien. The only thing the IRS requires is that the seller who owes money to the government not walk away with money that the IRS should have received.There are three main options to deal with IRS Tax liens. They are  Lien Discharge; Lien Subordination;Lien Withdrawal.In this article will be focusing how to sell a house using the  Lien Subordination Option."Subordination" does not remove the lien, but allows other creditors to move ahead of the IRS, wh...

I recently had a client that called my office in New Hope Minnesota and he wants to pay the tax debt owed but does not want to pay the penalties and interest associated with the tax debt. I had to explain to him that not all penalties qualifies for a relief and that other factors have to be considered. It is difficult to remove penalties and interest but there are certain penalties eligible for a tax relief.  The IRS penalties that are eligible relief include the following  Failure to file a tax return: The failure -to-file penalty is normally 4.5 percent of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month that a tax return is late. It will not exceed 25 percent of your unpaid taxes. For example, you forgot to file an extension and filed your tax return on December 20th 2XXX that was ...
