a woman with her head on a lot of paperwork, next to a calculator If you’ve been on YouTube for any amount of time, odds are you’ve seen a recommended video wherein an individual (perhaps a police officer or hacker) answers one of those spam phone calls from the “IRS.” Not only are these videos are incredibly entertaining, they’re also important to watch since they serve as an educational warning of what one should do if they ever receive one of these calls. First and foremost, it should be known that the IRS will never call anyone for any reason. If you’re facing IRS problems, you will receive a letter delineating exactly what’s wrong. So if you require assistance with the IRS, don’t drive to Walmart to purchase gift cards to ship off to whoever’s pretending to be the IRS on the other end of the phone; instead, you can seek assistance from your trustworthy CPAs at Clifford, Ross, Raudenbush & Cooper, LLC! Keep reading to learn more about some common IRS problems.

Tax Return Error

Taxes are complicated and it’s easy to make small mistakes that snowball into gian problems. If you don’t feel confident in your tax return or you feel a nagging feeling in the back of your mind, play it safe and visit CRRC before you file your taxes. You’re better off having a certified public accountant take a look at your taxes before you file. Once you’re okay to file, you won’t feel uncertain or unsure about what the future holds.
