Chefs and Cooks

We help and represent chefs and cooks with IRS tax disputes, which includes IRS tax liabilities, unfiled income tax forms, audits, penalties, and related matters.

Unfortunately, chefs and cooks are prone to have late filed or unfiled tax returns.  This is likely due to the distinct aspects of the work chefs perform.   Chefs and cooks often work long and irregular hours.  This keeps them from following up on money matters, which includes timely filing income tax forms.

Chefs and cooks are also more likely to have unsatisfied tax liabilities.  This is also due to the distinct aspects of the work chefs perform.  It is also due to the type of talent and training that chefs have.  Chefs and cooks are imaginative and willing to understand issues before making decisions.  This may result in inaction when it comes to resolving unsatisfied tax liabilities.  Other chefs and cooks face the opposite problem, namely, they do not make a decision until the last minute.  

Chefs and cooks are also likely to be chosen for audit by the IRS.  The IRS generally views chefs as being more likely to have tax troubles.  These tax troubles also stem from the distinct aspects of the work chefs perform and their skills and training, but also from their tendency to prepare their own income tax forms or rely on lower-end tax preparers.  

From a tax standpoint, right or wrong, chefs and cooks are defined by unfiled or late filed income tax forms, unsatisfied tax liabilities, and IRS tax audits.  There are a number of court cases and administrative rulings that demonstrate this.  If you are a chef or cook, we can help you avoid or manage these issues.

We help chefs and cooks with unfiled or late filed income tax forms, unsatisfied tax liabilities, and IRS tax audits.  We would like to hear from you if you are a chef or cook and have one of these issues or are likely to have one of these issues in the future.
