Amended Tax Returns
Amended returns allow tax filers to correct errors made on IRS tax returns. Such errors include changing filing status, over or under-reported income or incorrect deductions and credits. Math errors or omitted schedules do not require an amended return as the IRS processing center often corrects these errors on the original return. The Internal Revenue Service allows tax returns to be amended up to three years following the date the original return was filed or two years subsequent to the date the tax was paid. Amended returns are filed using Form 1040X for returns originally filed using Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040EZ, Form 1040NR, or Form 1040NR-EZ.

Business Entity Selection
The business entity—LLP, LLC, sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc.— that you select for your business has enormous financial and tax implications. It is important that you make the right decision. We can explain each choice and its implications. As your business grows and changes, the type of business entity you choose may need to change also.
Debt Resolution through Offers in Compromise
An offer in compromise allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. It may be a legitimate option if you can’t pay your full tax liability, or doing so creates a financial hardship. We consider your unique set of facts and circumstances such as: ability to pay; income; expenses and asset equity. Before we can consider your offer, you must be current with all filing and payment requirements. You are not eligible if you are in an open bankruptcy proceeding.
Electronic filing of all Federal and State returns with direct deposit of refunds or scheduled electronic payment of balance due
Federal/State e-file allows the electronic filing of both Federal and state income tax returns at the same time. The electronic filing software places your Federal and state return data in separate packets. These packets are transmitted to the IRS in one taxpayer “envelope.” The IRS functions as an electronic post office for the participant state, who receives and processes the state electronic return. Federal tax payments can be made via electronic funds withdrawal or credit card. Most states are accepting electronic funds withdrawal and credit card payments, but federal and state payments are not combined.
