Legal Answers
Q. what is the best way to report unreported income for small business that has gone for many years. what kind of lawyer?
A: A Tax Attorney would be the best professional to guide you through this process. It is very important the matter is handled with someone you have an Attorney Client privilege with. You can contact our office at 855-900-1040.
Q. I just received a notice saying I owe GA state taxes from 2012 , this is the first time I have heard from them.
A: The only way to know is to have a Tax Attorney contact Georgia and conduct a State Tax Investigation. Please let me know if my firm can help: 855-900-1040. The statue of limitations for Georgia runs longer than the IRS. Best, Chad Silver Sliver Tax Group
Q. I have a signed 8332 and divorce decree grants me to claim child on taxes. Can I still claim if I have arrears balance?
A: The new Tax Code changes as a result of the Jobs Act removed your ability to claim a child as a dependent. You may still be eligible for child care tax credits. This is the first year for the new changes and you may be surprised (happy or mad) about the results. Best, Chad Silver Attorney at Law
