I spend much of my day resolving taxpayer issues with the IRS.  And though everyone wants to focus on the cool stuff - making massive debts vanish for pennies on the dollar - it actually all starts with "Tax Compliance."So what is Tax Compliance you may be asking...good question!Tax Compliance means that the taxpayer has filed all returns due and owing as of this moment (yes you non-filers!), defined as the last 6 years, and is making their current tax period payments.  So as I sit here in August 2021, Tax Compliance would nean having 2015 - 2020 filed (if the 2020 return is on extension, than it would be 2014 - 2019).  It also means that the taxpayer is making their current tax payments, so: An employee is having sufficient withholding done so they will not owe money at the end of the ...

We represent taxpayers before the IRS and Department of Justice Tax Division, and have spoken frequently about the IRS increased use of both AI and John Doe Summonses to identify taxpayers who have either evaded reporting income and paying taxes, or those that have failed to disclose virtual currency in their financial affidavits, like with Offers-in-Compromise.Because of the IRS's efforts criminal tax referrals from the Collection Division are up 42% so far this year!Check out our podcasts #91 and 93 on this topic here:  https://taxreptoolbox.com/tax-rep-network-podcast-main-page/ Today a federal court in the District of Massachusetts entered an order today authorizing the IRS to serve a John Doe summons on Circle Internet Financial Inc., or its predecessors, subsidiaries, divisions, a...

In 2011, a sensational new black market website known as the “Silk Road” emerged on the dark net. This “Amazon of Illegal Drugs” was the brainchild of a mysterious, libertarian intellectual operating under the avatar “The Dread Pirate Roberts.” Promising its users complete anonymity, and total freedom from government regulation or scrutiny, Silk Road became a billion-dollar digital drugs cartel. Operating behind the special browser TOR and using on bitcoin, the criminal behind Silk Road would be taken down by a tenacious new special agent from the IRS assigned to the case. Joining Eric on this week’s podcast is that special agent, Gary Alford, to give is a glimpse into the puzzle that was Silk Road and his determination to find the clues necessary to crack the case.Check it out here: ht...

On February 23, 2021, the U.S. Tax Court rule in favor of our client that acquisition of credit card reward points, no matter how many the receive, is not a taxable event.  In Anikeev v. Commissioner, the IRS tried to tax credit card reward points that the taxpayer received claiming they were “cash equivalents” because the taxpayer purchased gift cards with his credit card, which generated rewards points, and then used the gift cards to purchase money orders, which the taxpayer then deposited in his bank account.  The Tax Court ruled the transaction was not a taxable event: “Reward [points] petitioners received were not notes, but they were commitments by [the credit card issuer] to allow petitioners credits against their card balances. Respondent’s analysis leaps to the cash equivalenc...
