5 IRS TAX SEASON ALERT By Eric J. Engelhardt, CPA, Tax Representation Specialist Eric J. Engelhardt, CPA and a frequent CLE Institute lecturer, expects the IRS to encounter many problems this tax season. Between budget cutbacks, the loss of experienced employees and the lack of funds to hire and train new workers, the IRS cannot possibly function properly. At the same time, the IRS is now also responsible for dealing with the new Affordable Care Act and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. For these reasons, we should expect very poor response time from the IRS this tax season. Tax preparers looking to resolve tax matters and for taxpayers calling in with questions, there will be frustrating delays, as well as issues with the IRS timely processing of tax returns and refunds. The Commissioner of the IRS has already gone public with the above issues. Engelhardt has a boutique Tax Firm which caters to Lawyers and Law Firm clients. His office provides Specialty Tax Services regarding IRS, NYS Tax Audits, NYC residency tax matters, various tax problem cases and tax preparation services. He is a volunteer member on the NYS Society of CPA s Relations with IRS Committee. Eric is especially concerned with the IRS lack of funds to combat identity theft and refund fraud. For this reason, he suggests that your 2014 refund, if applicable, be applied as a credit into Eric strongly suggests that you do not reveal your direct deposit information on the bottom of page two of your Federal form Tax advisors, preparers and clients will need to be very careful and patient.
