Businesses and individuals in Athens have the legal obligation to report their income and pay the correct income taxes periodically. Failure to file the appropriate tax forms and report correct information on these forms may expose you or your company to tax liabilities in the form of deficiency taxes, interest, penalties and surcharges. Responsible officers or owners may also face the penalty of imprisonment.
IRS tax cases often start with an IRS audit where an IRS examiner may find inaccuracies in your return. You may receive a written IRS notice informing you of your additional tax liabilities as a result of the understatement.
Taking action immediately after receiving an IRS notice is important; otherwise, the IRS may send you further notices informing you of collection procedures that can include a levy and garnishment.
If you are the subject of an IRS audit or have received an IRS notice regarding details of your tax return, consult a Texas IRS tax lawyer immediately.
