The Wall Street Journal on Fighting the IRS, and How Rubinstein & Rubinstein Can Help You
by Asher Rubinstein, Esq.
The Wall Street Journal published a long article titled “How to Fight the IRS” (April 13, 2010). Its lead is compelling:
“Brace yourself: The chances of being audited are rising. So if it happens to you, here’s what to do – and what not to do.
Get ready for increased scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service. With Washington searching for ways to cut the budget deficit, IRS officials face intense pressure to collect more revenue. The agency plans more audits, especially of taxpayers in high brackets or those who are self-employed and deal in large amounts of cash. The IRS also has turned up the heat in such areas as offshore tax evasion, including undisclosed foreign bank accounts.
If you become an IRS target, what should you do?”
We’re proud that we’ve been highlighting the same issues. For instance:
As the Wall Street Journal guides, “Having a smart, well-prepared tax expert on your side can be a tremendous advantage.
