We represent teachers with government income and other tax controversies, such as government income and other tax indebtedness, missing tax forms, audits, and penalties.
Regrettably, teachers are likely to have late filed or missing tax returns. This is likely due to the particular aspects of the work teachers perform. Teachers often work long and irregular hours. This keeps them from taking care of their personal finances, which includes timely filing tax forms.
Teachers are also more likely to have outstanding tax indebtedness. This is also due to the particular aspects of the work teachers perform. It is also due to the type of abilities and training that teachers have. Teachers are able and willing to carefully research issues before making decisions. This may result in inaction when it comes to resolving outstanding tax indebtedness. Other teachers face the opposite problem, namely, they take a wait and see approach.
Teachers are also likely to be subject to audit by the IRS. The IRS generally views teachers as being more likely to have problems complying with our tax laws. These problems complying with our tax laws also stem from the particular aspects of the work teachers perform and their skills and training, but also from their tendency to prepare their own tax forms or rely on lower-end tax preparers.
From a tax standpoint, right or wrong, teachers are defined by missing or late filed tax forms, outstanding tax indebtedness, and government income and other tax audits. There are a number of court cases and administrative rulings that demonstrate this. If you are a teacher, we can help you avoid or manage these issues.
