Government Stepping Up Audits 


Smaller companies may be particularly vulnerable to tax audits, because "they don't have big tax departments, and they don't want to pay for third party reviews if they do business in other states."

States are also stepping up efforts to establish nexus, the legal term for a taxable presence in a jurisdiction. Experts say tax authorities are actively targeting companies that have been doing business in their state but have not been filing either corporate income tax returns or sales tax returns.

If the IRS Calls!


A few things to bear in mind if you are contacted from the IRS.


irsRespond: Ignoring a notice invites penalities and interest, liens, and granished wages.


Consider a pro: If you need help, stay local. Find a CPA, Attorney, or Enrolled Agent (EA) to represent you.


Get Results: Pay for services only after they have been performed. Tax consulting often costs $75 to $250 an hour.

3.  A Change in Credit Card Strategy -Excerpt from Suze Orman:

If you have an unpaid credit card balance and not much saved up in emergency savings I need you to listen up. My advice has changed.

I want you to only pay the minimum due on  your credit card balance and instead make it your top priority to build as much of an  emergency cash fund as you can.
