Today's Tax Joke


Did you ever notice that when you put the words "The" and "IRS" together, it becomes "theirs"?    
 

Save the Date!


I am excited to be part of a panel discussion at the upcoming 2020 Business Fundamentals Bootcamp, presented by Supporting Strategies. The event takes place on May 15th at the Northern Illinois University – Naperville in Naperville, IL. I'll be speaking along with other business leaders on topics such as marketing, finance, law and human resources.
 
The Bootcamp is designed especially for CEO's and CXO's of growing small businesses, with a focus on the tactical and operational know how that you need to manage your business. I'll be part of the panel discussion in support of the event's theme, “Strategies to Keep Your Business Thriving".

Mark your calendar today, and watch this space for more exciting information on the program!

 

Knock Knock, Who’s There?

 
The IRS is making house calls. In an effort to reach high-income individuals who have not filed one or more tax returns in recent years, the IRS is sending several dozen agents to make at least 800 face to face visits before April 15.
 
A last-ditch attempt to encourage compliance, this is the final step before the agency pursues more drastic measures, which include civil or criminal action. The IRS plans on identifying other non-compliant individuals throughout the year and adding cases as they find them.

Timeshare Salesman Now
Sharing His Time in Jail Cell

 
Gregory Overton Powell, 62, a timeshare salesman in Virginia, was charged with evading his federal income tax obligations for approximately 13 years. Powell made roughly $300,000.00 a year between 2006 and 2016 but neglected to file his tax returns on time and made minimal payments towards his tax liabilities. He owed more than $1.4 million in taxes and penalties for that same period.
 
On two separate occasions, IRS agents allowed Powell to set up an installment agreement for back taxes, provided he adjust his tax withholding. But Powell reneged on the terms of both agreements, falsely telling his employer that he was exempt from tax, thus preventing any withholding from his salary.
 
Powell took other steps to avoid paying his tax debt as well. He failed to report his ownership of a 34-foot speedboat on a collection statement, had his wife purchase and hold title to real property as a nominee to obstruct collection efforts, and convinced another person to take nominal title of a different property he owned in Newport News, Virginia.
 
Powell was sentenced to 40 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. He was ordered to pay $ 1,405,954.00 in restitution to the IRS.
