HAVE YOU FILED YOUR TAXES?

Alright everyone, it’s that time of the year again — time to file your taxes. Since this is my busiest time of the year, you may have heard more of my radio ads and seen more print and online advertisements. Many people are not aware that my job not only encompasses battling the IRS on behalf of my clients, but I also help my clients file tax returns, too. My advice for those filing is to get them done as soon as possible. Don’t wait around until the last second or think that you can procrastinate because you know you’ll owe at the end of the process. Get them done well before April 15. Don’t miss the deadline! While it’s important for everyone to file their taxes on time if they don’t want any trouble with the IRS, it is extremely important to file your taxes on time if you have found yourself in trouble with the IRS in the past. "Why?" you ask. Because of compliance. If you have been in trouble with the IRS, your case was settled, and you are now in good standing, all of that can change if you fail to file at any point during the rest of your life. For example: If, as part of your agreement, the IRS forgave a portion of your debt, but you do not file your taxes two years later, the agreement both you and the IRS signed can be nullified, and your debt can be reinstated. In the eyes of the IRS, your failure to file taxes is a clear cancellation of any agreement you made with them. So don’t forget to file your taxes, and if you need help, call me. "If you have been in trouble with the IRS, your case was settled, and you are now in good standing, all of that can change if you fail to file at any point during the rest of your life." If you would like an experienced tax attorney to help you file your 2017 taxes, simply call Bonnie at (312) 664-6649 to set up an appointment with me. As an added bonus, if you bring me last year’s receipt, I will do it for half the price the other guys charged you. I understand that nobody wants multiple people handling their taxes, and it can be hard to switch, but I assure you, I am the best man for the job.

We also offer a program at the Law Offices of Steven A. Leahy called the IRS Protection Plan. Clients who opt for this plan receive help when planning for taxes, have the power of attorney on file with the IRS to address any issues that may pop up in the future, and receive assistance with their tax return at the end of the year. Clients who opt for this program pay a monthly fee based on their returns, so rates vary. If you are interested in this program, please give Bonnie a call and schedule an appointment with me.

See you soon.
