We help and represent independent contractors with government troubles, including government debt, unfiled income tax forms, and audits.
Unfortunately, independent contractors are prone to have late filed or unfiled tax returns. This is likely due to the distinct aspects of the work independent contractors perform. Independent contractors often work long and irregular hours. This keeps them from following up on money matters, which includes timely filing income tax forms.
Independent contractors are also more likely to have unpaid tax debt. This is also due to the distinct aspects of the work independent contractors perform. It is also due to the type of accomplishments and training that independent contractors have. Independent contractors are able and willing to carefully research issues before making decisions. This may result in inaction when it comes to resolving unpaid tax debt. Other independent contractors face the opposite problem, namely, they put off decisions to the last minute.
Independent contractors are also likely to be pulled for audit by the IRS. The IRS generally views independent contractors as being more likely to have tax troubles. These tax troubles also stem from the distinct aspects of the work independent contractors 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, independent contractors are defined by unfiled or late filed income tax forms, unpaid tax debt, and government audits. There are a number of court cases and administrative rulings that demonstrate this. If you are a independent contractor, we can help you avoid or manage these issues.
