On Feb 12, 2015, IRS Commr. John Koskinen appeared before the House Ways and Means Oversight Committee and stated:
“To anyone who is not treated fairly under the Code (Internal Revenue Code) I apologize. Taxpayers have to be comfortable that they will be treated fairly.”
The IRS is greatly expanding civil and criminal tax audits including: unreported income, fraudulent tax deductions, failure to file tax returns, or filing false tax returns.
Please answer the following three questions:
1) Have you filed all tax returns?
2) Have you reported all U.S. income?
3) Have you reported all international income?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, please call us now for an appointment.
“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.”
Judge Learned Hand, Commissioner v. Newman, 159 F.2d 848, 850-851 (2d Cir. 1947)
