Tax Day is April 15th. Are You Ready?

Earlier today, I received an email from Avvo.com, preparing tax lawyers for the approaching tax deadline. The email contained some tax tips for 2009, which I have included below. Additionally, my law firm’s Managing Attorney, Justin Hein, was even listed as a top contributing lawyer.

File Your Federal Tax Return for Free

Did you know that many U.S. taxpayers can file online, free of charge? Online filing not only has the benefit of minimizing errors, but it also has the added advantage of offering refunds within 10 days for those who e-file. Find out if you qualify and how to get started.

Claiming Dependents on Your Taxes

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allows you to take a tax deduction for each qualifying child or other relative you support. Learn more on the ins and outs of claiming dependents on your taxes in order to increase your overall deductions on your federal tax return.

Dealing with IRS Revenue Officers

If you have a history of not filing taxes, have not paid certain types of taxes (e.g. payroll taxes), or you owe a very large amount of money to the government, you may find someone from the IRS on your front steps one morning. Get helpful tips on what to expect and how to deal with IRS Revenue Officers if they show up at your home or office from California attorney Justin Hein.
