We counsel and assist artists with government income and other tax controversies, which includes government income and other tax liabilities, missing IRS tax forms, audits, penalties, and related matters.
Regrettably, artists are inclined to have late filed or missing tax returns. This is likely due to the special aspects of the work artists perform. Artists often work long and irregular hours. This keeps them from taking care of IRS problems, which includes timely filing IRS tax forms.
Artists are also more likely to have unsatisfied tax liabilities. This is also due to the special aspects of the work artists perform. It is also due to the type of abilities and training that artists have. Artists are imaginative and willing to understand issues before making decisions. This may result in inaction when it comes to resolving unsatisfied tax liabilities. Other artists face the opposite problem, namely, they do not make a decision until the last minute.
Artists are also likely to be subject to audit by the IRS. The IRS generally views artists as being more likely to have significant tax problems. These significant tax problems also stem from the special aspects of the work artists perform and their skills and training, but also from their tendency to prepare their own IRS tax forms or rely on lower-end tax preparers.
From a tax standpoint, right or wrong, artists are defined by missing or late filed IRS tax forms, unsatisfied tax liabilities, and government income and other tax audits. There are a number of court cases and administrative rulings that demonstrate this. If you are a artist, we can help you avoid or manage these issues.
We help artists with missing or late filed IRS tax forms, unsatisfied tax liabilities, and government income and other tax audits. We would like to hear from you if you are a artist and have one of these issues or are likely to have one of these issues in the future.
