It's been a crazy year. Grateful we could represent our clients through the multiple offer situation to get a home!   "We are very thankful to Jeff and Grace Safrin for the incredible work they did in helping us find the perfect home in Munster, IN. For family reasons, Munster was our only choice for a home, and for good reasons, finding the right home in Munster was a challenge from the get-go-because many in the nearby Chicago market are looking to get out of Illinois but stay in the metro area. Jeff and Grace said it may take time, but we will find you a home you will love. We were prepared to wait up to a year, but Jeff and Grace found us the perfect home in less than 90 days, which was an incredible accomplishment given the popularity of Munster, as well as the crazy housing market...

When clients come into my Hobart IN office after an IRS audit with a tax bill they don’t believe they owe, we usually will talk about 2 options for resolving the tax debt: Audit Reconsideration or doing a doubt as to liability offer.Audit reconsideration is a process where you can ask the IRS to review information that was not submitted during the original tax audit (along with documentation that was submitted with the audit). It is also used after the client submits a tax return after the IRS has created a Substitute for return (SFR)(when the client didn’t file a return), when it is believed the IRS made a computational or processing error and it can also be used when the IRS denies certain credits that the client feels they are entitled to.There are situations where the IRS will not c...

When a company gets behind on their payroll taxes and IRS penalties and interest get added in, it can become a nightmare for the company to try to catch up. Worse, as is often the case when clients come into my Hobart, IN office, if you are one of the people responsible for payroll tax preparation and payment process, there is the potential for the IRS to assess a personal liability against you and in helping collect this tax debt, and one of my priorities is to try to minimize the amount of personal exposure to my client.As many business owners and accountants know, there are two type of payroll taxes that a company has to remit to the IRS.          The trust fund taxes – these are taxes that are withheld from an employee’s pay check and held in trust until they are remitted to the IRS...
