Help Examination of Returns Your return may be examined for a variety of reasons, and the examination may take place in any one of several ways. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 After the examination, if any changes to your tax are proposed, you can either agree with those changes and pay any additional tax you may owe, or you can disagree with the changes and appeal the decision. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Examination selection criteria. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Your return may be selected for examination on the basis of computer scoring. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A computer program called the Discriminant Inventory Function System (DIF) assigns a numeric score to each individual and some corporate tax returns after they have been processed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your return is selected because of a high score under the DIF system, the potential is high that an examination of your return will result in a change to your income tax liability. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Your return may also be selected for examination on the basis of information received from third-party documentation, such as Forms 1099 and W-2, that does not match the information reported on your return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Or, your return may be selected to address both the questionable treatment of an item and to study the behavior of similar taxpayers (a market segment) in handling a tax issue. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   In addition, your return may be selected as a result of information received from other sources on potential noncompliance with the tax laws or inaccurate filing. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 This information can come from a number of sources, including newspapers, public records, and individuals. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The information is evaluated for reliability and accuracy before it is used as the basis of an examination or investigation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Notice of IRS contact of third parties. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The IRS must give you reasonable notice before contacting other persons about your tax matters. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You must be given reasonable notice in advance that, in examining or collecting your tax liability, the IRS may contact third parties such as your neighbors, banks, employers, or employees. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS must also give you notice of specific contacts by providing you with a record of persons contacted on both a periodic basis and upon your request. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    This provision does not apply: To any pending criminal investigation, When providing notice would jeopardize collection of any tax liability, Where providing notice may result in reprisal against any person, or When you authorized the contact. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Taxpayer Advocate Service. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The Taxpayer Advocate Service is an independent organization within the IRS whose goal is to help taxpayers resolve problems with the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you have an ongoing issue with the IRS that has not been resolved through normal processes, or your problems with the IRS are causing financial difficulty, contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    Before contacting the Taxpayer Advocate Service, you should first discuss any problem with a supervisor. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Your local Taxpayer Advocate will assist you if you are unable to resolve the problem with the supervisor. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   For more information, see Publication 1546. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See How To Get Tax Help , near the end of this publication, for more information about contacting the Taxpayer Advocate Service. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Comments from small business. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The Small Business and Agricultural Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and 10 Regional Fairness Boards have been established to receive comments from small business about federal agency enforcement actions. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The Ombudsman will annually evaluate the enforcement activities of each agency and rate their responsiveness to small business. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you wish to comment on the enforcement actions of the IRS, you can take any of the following steps. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Fax your comments to 1-202-481-5719. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Write to the following address: Office of the National Ombudsman U. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 S. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Small Business Administration 409 3rd Street, SW Washington, DC 20416 Call

cheap 1099 g form w 2 Examinations not handled by mail can take place in your home, your place of business, an Internal Revenue office, or the office of your authorized representative. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the time, place, or method is not convenient for you, the examiner will try to work out something more suitable. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, the IRS makes the final determination of when, where, and how the examination will take place. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Throughout the examination, you can act on your own behalf or have someone represent you or accompany you. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you filed a joint return, either you or your spouse, or both, can meet with the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The person representing you can be any federally authorized practitioner, including an attorney, a certified public accountant, an enrolled agent (a person enrolled to practice before the IRS), an enrolled actuary, or the person who prepared the return and signed it as the preparer. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you want someone to represent you in your absence, you must furnish that person with proper written authorization. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You can use Form 2848 or any other properly written authorization. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you want to consult with an attorney, a certified public accountant, an enrolled agent, or any other person permitted to represent a taxpayer during an interview for examining a tax return or collecting tax, you should make arrangements with that person to be available for the interview. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 In most cases, the IRS must suspend the interview and reschedule it. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS cannot suspend the interview if you are there because of an administrative summons. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Third party authorization. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you checked the box in the signature area of your income tax return (Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040EZ) to allow the IRS to discuss your return with another person (a third party designee), this authorization does not replace Form 2848. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The box you checked on your return only authorizes the other person to receive information about the processing of your return and the status of your refund during the period your return is being processed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information, see the instructions for your return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Confidentiality privilege. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Generally, the same confidentiality protection that you have with an attorney also applies to certain communications that you have with federally authorized practitioners. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Confidential communications are those that: Advise you on tax matters within the scope of the practitioner's authority to practice before the IRS, Would be confidential between an attorney and you, and Relate to noncriminal tax matters before the IRS, or Relate to noncriminal tax proceedings brought in federal court by or against the United States. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   In the case of communications in connection with the promotion of a person's participation in a tax shelter, the confidentiality privilege does not apply to written communications between a federally authorized practitioner and that person, any director, officer, employee, agent, or representative of that person, or any other person holding a capital or profits interest in that person. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   A tax shelter is any entity, plan, or arrangement, a significant purpose of which is the avoidance or evasion of income tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Recordings. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    You can make an audio recording of the examination interview. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Your request to record the interview should be made in writing. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You must notify the examiner 10 days in advance and bring your own recording equipment. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS also can record an interview. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the IRS initiates the recording, you must be notified 10 days in advance and you can get a copy of the recording at your expense. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Transfers to another area. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    Generally, your return is examined in the area where you live. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 But if your return can be examined more quickly and conveniently in another area, such as where your books and records are located, you can ask to have the case transferred to that area. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Repeat examinations. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The IRS tries to avoid repeat examinations of the same items, but sometimes this happens. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your tax return was examined for the same items in either of the 2 previous years and no change was proposed to your tax liability, please contact the IRS as soon as possible to see if the examination should be discontinued. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The Examination An examination usually begins when you are notified that your return has been selected. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS will tell you which records you will need. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The examination can proceed more easily if you gather your records before any interview. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Any proposed changes to your return will be explained to you or your authorized representative. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 It is important that you understand the reasons for any proposed changes. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You should not hesitate to ask about anything that is unclear to you. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS must follow the tax laws set forth by Congress in the Internal Revenue Code. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS also follows Treasury Regulations, other rules, and procedures that were written to administer the tax laws and court decisions. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, the IRS can lose cases that involve taxpayers with the same issue and still apply its interpretation of the law to your situation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Most taxpayers agree to changes proposed by examiners, and the examinations are closed at this level. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you do not agree, you can appeal any proposed change by following the procedures provided to you by the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A more complete discussion of appeal rights is found later under Appeal Rights . 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If You Agree If you agree with the proposed changes, you can sign an agreement form and pay any additional tax you may owe. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You must pay interest on any additional tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you pay when you sign the agreement, the interest is generally figured from the due date of your return (excluding any extension of time to file) to the date of your payment. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you do not pay the additional tax when you sign the agreement, you will receive a bill that includes interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you pay the amount due within 10 business days of the billing date, you will not have to pay more interest or penalties. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 This period is extended to 21 calendar days if the amount due is less than $100,000. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you are due a refund, you will receive it sooner if you sign the agreement form. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You will be paid interest on the refund. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the IRS accepts your tax return as filed, you will receive a letter in a few weeks stating that the examiner proposed no changes to your return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You should keep this letter with your tax records. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If You Do Not Agree If you do not agree with the proposed changes, the examiner will explain your appeal rights. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your examination takes place in an IRS office, you can request an immediate meeting with the examiner's supervisor to explain your position. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If an agreement is reached, your case will be closed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you cannot reach an agreement with the supervisor at this meeting, or if the examination took place outside of an IRS office, the examiner will write up your case explaining your position and the IRS's position. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The examiner will forward your case for processing. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Fast track mediation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The IRS offers fast track mediation services to help taxpayers resolve many disputes resulting from: Examinations (audits), Offers in compromise, Trust fund recovery penalties, and Other collection actions. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Most cases that are not docketed in any court qualify for fast track mediation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Mediation can take place at a conference you request with a supervisor, or later. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The process involves an Appeals Officer who has been trained in mediation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You may represent yourself at the mediation session, or someone else can act as your representative. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information, see Publication 3605. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 30-day letter and 90-day letter. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Within a few weeks after your closing conference with the examiner and/or supervisor, you will receive a package with: A letter (known as a 30-day letter) notifying you of your right to appeal the proposed changes within 30 days, A copy of the examination report explaining the examiner's proposed changes, An agreement or waiver form, and A copy of Publication 5. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You generally have 30 days from the date of the 30-day letter to tell the IRS whether you will accept or appeal the proposed changes. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The letter will explain what steps you should take, depending on which action you choose. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Be sure to follow the instructions carefully. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Appeal Rights are explained later. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 90-day letter. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you do not respond to the 30-day letter, or if you later do not reach an agreement with an Appeals Officer, the IRS will send you a 90-day letter, which is also known as a notice of deficiency. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You will have 90 days (150 days if it is addressed to you outside the United States) from the date of this notice to file a petition with the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Filing a petition with the Tax Court is discussed later under Appeals to the Courts and Tax Court . 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The notice will show the 90th (or 150th) day by which you must file your petition with the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Suspension of interest and penalties. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Generally, the IRS has 3 years from the date you filed your return (or the date the return was due, if later) to assess any additional tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, if you file your return timely (including extensions), interest and certain penalties will be suspended if the IRS does not mail a notice to you, stating your liability and the basis for that liability, within a 36-month period beginning on the later of: The date on which you filed your tax return, or The due date (without extensions) of your tax return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the IRS mails a notice after the 36-month period, interest and certain penalties applicable to the suspension period will be suspended. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The suspension period begins the day after the close of the 36-month period and ends 21 days after the IRS mails a notice to you stating your liability and the basis for that liability. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Also, the suspension period applies separately to each notice stating your liability and the basis for that liability received by you. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The suspension does not apply to a: Failure-to-pay penalty, Fraudulent tax return, Penalty, interest, addition to tax, or additional amount with respect to any tax liability shown on your return or with respect to any gross misstatement, Penalty, interest, addition to tax, or additional amount with respect to any reportable transaction that is not adequately disclosed or any listed transaction, or Criminal penalty. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Seeking relief from improperly assessed interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   You can seek relief if interest is assessed for periods during which interest should have been suspended because the IRS did not mail a notice to you in a timely manner. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you believe that interest was assessed with respect to a period during which interest should have been suspended, submit Form 843, writing “Section 6404(g) Notification” at the top of the form, with the IRS Service Center where you filed your return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS will review the Form 843 and notify you whether interest will be abated. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the IRS does not abate interest, you can pay the disputed interest assessment and file a claim for refund. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your claim is denied or not acted upon within 6 months from the date you filed it, you can file suit for a refund in your United States District Court or in the United States Court of Federal Claims. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you believe that an IRS officer or employee has made an unreasonable error or delay in performing a ministerial or managerial act (discussed later under Abatement of Interest Due to Error or Delay by the IRS ), file Form 843 with the IRS Service Center where you filed the tax return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If the IRS denies your claim, the Tax Court may be able to review that determination. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Tax Court can review failure to abate interest later under Abatement of Interest Due to Error or Delay by the IRS . 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you later agree. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    If you agree with the examiner's changes after receiving the examination report or the 30-day letter, sign and return either the examination report or the waiver form. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Keep a copy for your records. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You can pay any additional amount you owe without waiting for a bill. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Include interest on the additional tax at the applicable rate. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 This interest rate is usually for the period from the due date of the return (excluding any extension of time to file) to the date of payment. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The examiner can tell you the interest rate(s) or help you figure the amount. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   You must pay interest on penalties and additions to tax for failing to file returns, for overstating valuations, for understating valuations on estate and gift tax returns, and for substantially understating tax liability. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Interest is generally figured from the date (including extensions) the tax return is required to be filed to the date you pay the penalty and/or additions to tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you pay the amount due within 10 business days after the date of notice and demand for immediate payment, you will not have to pay any additional penalties and interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 This period is extended to 21 calendar days if the amount due is less than $100,000. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 How To Stop Interest From Accruing If you think that you will owe additional tax at the end of the examination, you can stop the further accrual of interest by sending money to the IRS to cover all or part of the amount you think you will owe. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Interest on part or all of any amount you owe will stop accruing on the date the IRS receives your money. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You can send an amount either in the form of a deposit in the nature of a cash bond or as a payment of tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Both a deposit and a payment stop any further accrual of interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, making a deposit or payment will stop the accrual of interest on only the amount you sent. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Because of compounding rules, interest will continue to accrue on accrued interest, even though you have paid the underlying tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 To stop the accrual of interest on both tax and interest, you must make a deposit or payment for both the tax and interest that has accrued as of the date of deposit or payment. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Payment or Deposit Deposits differ from payments in two ways: You can have all or part of your deposit returned to you without filing for a refund. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, if you request and receive your deposit and the IRS later assesses a deficiency for that period and type of tax, interest will be figured as if the funds were never on deposit. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Also, your deposit will not be returned if one of the following situations applies: The IRS assesses a tax liability. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS determines that, by returning the deposit, it may not be able to collect a future deficiency. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS determines that the deposit should be applied against another tax liability. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Deposits returned to you will include interest based on the Federal short-term rate determined under section 6621(b). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The deposit returned will be treated as a tax payment to the extent of the disputed tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A disputed tax means the amount of tax specified at the time of deposit as a reasonable estimate of the maximum amount of any tax owed by you, such as the deficiency proposed in the 30-day letter. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Notice not mailed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    If you send money before the IRS mails you a notice of deficiency, you can ask the IRS to treat it as a deposit. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You must make your request in writing. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If, after being notified of a proposed liability but before the IRS mails you a notice of deficiency, you send an amount large enough to cover the proposed liability, it will be considered a payment unless you request in writing that it be treated as a deposit. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Keep copies of all correspondence you send to the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If the amount you send is at least as much as the proposed liability and you do not request that it be treated as a deposit, the IRS will not send you a notice of deficiency. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you do not receive a notice of deficiency, you cannot take your case to the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Tax Court , later under Appeal Rights . 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Notice mailed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    If, after the IRS mails the notice of deficiency, you send money without written instructions, it will be treated as a payment. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You will still be able to petition the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you send money after receiving a notice of deficiency and you have specified in writing that it is a “deposit in the nature of a cash bond,” the IRS will treat it as a deposit if you send it before either: The close of the 90-day or 150-day period for filing a petition with the Tax Court to appeal the deficiency, or The date the Tax Court decision is final, if you have filed a petition. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Using a Deposit To Pay the Tax If you agree with the examiner's proposed changes after the examination, your deposit will be applied against any amount you may owe. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS will not mail you a notice of deficiency and you will not have the right to take your case to the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you do not agree to the full amount of the deficiency after the examination, the IRS will mail you a notice of deficiency. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Your deposit will be applied against the proposed deficiency unless you write to the IRS before the end of the 90-day or 150-day period stating that you still want the money to be treated as a deposit. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You will still have the right to take your case to the Tax Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Installment Agreement Request You can request a monthly installment plan if you cannot pay the full amount you owe. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 To be valid, your request must be approved by the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, if you owe $10,000 or less in tax and you meet certain other criteria, the IRS must accept your request. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Before you request an installment agreement, you should consider other less costly alternatives, such as a bank loan. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You will continue to be charged interest and penalties on the amount you owe until it is paid in full. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Unless your income is below a certain level, the fee for an approved installment agreement has increased to $105 ($52 if you make your payments by electronic funds withdrawal). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your income is below a certain level, you may qualify to pay a reduced fee of $43. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information about installment agreements, see Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Interest Netting If you owe interest to the IRS on an underpayment for the same period the IRS owes you interest on an overpayment, the IRS will figure interest on the underpayment and overpayment at the same interest rate (up to the amount of the overpayment). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 As a result, the net rate is zero for that period. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Abatement of Interest Due to Error or Delay by the IRS The IRS may abate (reduce) the amount of interest you owe if the interest is due to an unreasonable error or delay by an IRS officer or employee in performing a ministerial or managerial act (discussed later). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Only the amount of interest on income, estate, gift, generation-skipping, and certain excise taxes can be reduced. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The amount of interest will not be reduced if you or anyone related to you contributed significantly to the error or delay. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Also, the interest will be reduced only if the error or delay happened after the IRS contacted you in writing about the deficiency or payment on which the interest is based. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 An audit notification letter is such a contact. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS cannot reduce the amount of interest due to a general administrative decision, such as a decision on how to organize the processing of tax returns. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Ministerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    This is a procedural or mechanical act, not involving the exercise of judgment or discretion, during the processing of a case after all prerequisites (for example, conferences and review by supervisors) have taken place. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A decision concerning the proper application of federal tax law (or other federal or state law) is not a ministerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Example 1. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You move from one state to another before the IRS selects your tax return for examination. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A letter stating that your return has been selected is sent to your old address and then forwarded to your new address. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 When you get the letter, you respond with a request that the examination be transferred to the area office closest to your new address. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The examination group manager approves your request. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 After your request has been approved, the transfer is a ministerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS can reduce the interest because of any unreasonable delay in transferring the case. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Example 2. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 An examination of your return reveals tax due for which a notice of deficiency (90-day letter) will be issued. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 After you and the IRS discuss the issues, the notice is prepared and reviewed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 After the review process, issuing the notice of deficiency is a ministerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If there is an unreasonable delay in sending the notice of deficiency to you, the IRS can reduce the interest resulting from the delay. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Managerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    This is an administrative act during the processing of a case that involves the loss of records or the exercise of judgment or discretion concerning the management of personnel. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A decision concerning the proper application of federal tax law (or other federal or state law) is not a managerial act. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Example. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 A revenue agent is examining your tax return. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 During the middle of the examination, the agent is sent to an extended training course. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The agent's supervisor decides not to reassign your case, so the work is unreasonably delayed until the agent returns. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Interest from the unreasonable delay can be abated since both the decision to send the agent to the training class and not to reassign the case are managerial acts. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 How to request abatement of interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    You request an abatement (reduction) of interest on Form 843. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You should file the claim with the IRS Service Center where you filed the tax return that was affected by the error or delay. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you have already paid the interest and you would like a credit or refund of interest paid, you must file Form 843 within 3 years from the date you filed your original return or 2 years from the date you paid the interest, whichever is later. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you have not paid any of the interest, these time limitations for filing Form 843 do not apply. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Generally, you should file a separate Form 843 for each tax period and each type of tax. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, complete only one Form 843 if the interest is from an IRS error or delay that affected your tax for more than one tax period or for more than one type of tax (for example, where 2 or more tax years were being examined). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If your request for abatement of interest is denied, you can appeal the decision to the IRS Appeals Office. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Tax Court can review failure to abate interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The Tax Court can review the IRS's refusal to abate (reduce) interest if all of the following requirements are met: You filed a request for abatement of interest (Form 843) with the IRS after July 30,1996. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS has mailed you a notice of final determination or a notice of disallowance. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You file a petition with the Tax Court within 180 days of the mailing of the notice of final determination or the notice of disallowance. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The following requirements must also be met: For individual and estate taxpayers — your net worth must not exceed $2 million as of the filing date of your petition for review. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For this purpose, individuals filing a joint return shall be treated as separate individuals. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For charities and certain cooperatives — you must not have more than 500 employees as of the filing date of your petition for review. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For all other taxpayers — your net worth must not exceed $7 million, and you must not have more than 500 employees as of the filing date of your petition for review. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Abatement of Interest for Individuals Affected by Presidentially Declared Disasters or Military or Terrorist Actions If you are (or were) affected by a Presidentially declared disaster occurring after 1996 or a terrorist or military action occurring after September 10, 2001, the IRS may abate (reduce) the amount of interest you owe on certain taxes. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS may abate interest for the period of any additional time to file or pay that the IRS provides on account of the disaster or the terrorist or military action. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS will issue a notice or news release indicating who are affected taxpayers and stating the period of relief. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you are eligible for relief from interest, but were charged interest for the period of relief, the IRS may retroactively abate your interest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 To the extent possible, the IRS can take the following actions: Make appropriate adjustments to your account. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Notify you when the adjustments are made. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Refund any interest paid by you where appropriate. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information on disaster area losses, see Disaster Area Losses in Publication 547. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information on other tax relief for victims of terrorist attacks, see Publication 3920. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Offer in Compromise In certain circumstances, the IRS will allow you to pay less than the full amount you owe. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you think you may qualify, you should submit your offer by filing Form 656, Offer in Compromise. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS may accept your offer for any of the following reasons: There is doubt about the amount you owe (or whether you owe it). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 There is doubt as to whether you can pay the amount you owe based on your financial situation. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 An economic hardship would result if you had to pay the full amount owed. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Your case presents compelling reasons that the IRS determines are a sufficient basis for compromise. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your offer is rejected, you have 30 days to ask the Appeals Office of the IRS to reconsider your offer. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS offers fast track mediation services to help taxpayers resolve many issues including a dispute regarding an offer in compromise. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information, see Publication 3605. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Generally, if you submit an offer in compromise, the IRS will delay certain collection activities. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS usually will not levy (take) your property to settle your tax bill during the following periods: While the IRS is evaluating your offer in compromise. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The 30 days immediately after the offer is rejected. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 While your timely-filed appeal is being considered by Appeals. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Also, if the IRS rejects your original offer and you submit a revised offer within 30 days of the rejection, the IRS generally will not levy your property while it considers your revised offer. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For more information about submitting an offer in compromise, see Form 656. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Appeal Rights Because people sometimes disagree on tax matters, the IRS has an appeals system. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Most differences can be settled within this system without expensive and time-consuming court trials. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, your reasons for disagreeing must come within the scope of the tax laws. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For example, you cannot appeal your case based only on moral, religious, political, constitutional, conscientious, or similar grounds. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 In most instances, you may be eligible to take your case to court if you do not reach an agreement at your appeals conference, or if you do not want to appeal your case to the IRS Office of Appeals. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Appeals to the Courts , later, for more information. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Appeal Within the IRS You can appeal an IRS tax decision to a local Appeals Office, which is separate from and independent of the IRS office taking the action you disagree with. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The Appeals Office is the only level of appeal within the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Conferences with Appeals Office personnel are held in an informal manner by correspondence, by telephone, or at a personal conference. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you want an appeals conference, follow the instructions in the letter you received. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Your request will be sent to the Appeals Office to arrange a conference at a convenient time and place. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You or your representative should be prepared to discuss all disputed issues at the conference. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Most differences are settled at this level. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If agreement is not reached at your appeals conference, you may be eligible to take your case to court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Appeals to the Courts , later. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Protests and Small Case Requests When you request an Appeals conference, you may also need to file either a formal written protest or a small case request with the office named in the letter you received. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Also, see the special appeal request procedures in Publication 1660. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Written protest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   You need to file a written protest in the following cases: All employee plan and exempt organization cases without regard to the dollar amount at issue. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 All partnership and S corporation cases without regard to the dollar amount at issue. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 All other cases, unless you qualify for the small case request procedure, or other special appeal procedures such as requesting Appeals consideration of liens, levies, seizures, or installment agreements. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If you must submit a written protest, see the instructions in Publication 5 about the information you need to provide. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The IRS urges you to provide as much information as you can, as it will help speed up your appeal. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 That will save you both time and money. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    Be sure to send the protest within the time limit specified in the letter you received. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Small case request. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   If the total amount for any tax period is not more than $25,000, you may make a small case request instead of filing a formal written protest. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 In figuring the total amount, include a proposed increase or decrease in tax (including penalties), or claimed refund. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you are making an offer in compromise, include total unpaid tax, penalty, and interest due. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 For a small case request, follow the instructions in our letter to you by sending a letter: Requesting Appeals consideration, Indicating the changes you do not agree with, and Indicating the reasons why you do not agree. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Representation You can represent yourself at your appeals conference, or you can be represented by any federally authorized practitioner, including an attorney, a certified public accountant, an enrolled actuary, or an enrolled agent. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If your representative attends a conference without you, he or she can receive or inspect confidential information only if you have filed a power of attorney or a tax information authorization. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You can use a Form 2848 or any other properly written power of attorney or authorization. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You can also bring witnesses to support your position. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Confidentiality privilege. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   Generally, the same confidentiality protection that you have with an attorney also applies to certain communications that you have with federally authorized practitioners. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Confidentiality privilege under If Your Return Is Examined , earlier. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Appeals to the Courts If you and the IRS still disagree after the appeals conference, you may be entitled to take your case to the United States Tax Court, the United States Court of Federal Claims, or a United States District Court. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 These courts are independent of the IRS. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you elect to bypass the IRS's appeals system, you may be able to take your case to one of the courts listed above. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, a case petitioned to the United States Tax Court will normally be considered for settlement by an Appeals Officer before the Tax Court hears the case. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 If you unreasonably fail to pursue the IRS's appeals system, or if your case is intended primarily to cause a delay, or your position is frivolous or groundless, the Tax Court may impose a penalty of up to $25,000. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 See Appeal Within the IRS, earlier. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Prohibition on requests to taxpayers to give up rights to bring civil action. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The Government cannot ask you to waive your right to sue the United States or a Government officer or employee for any action taken in connection with the tax laws. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 However, your right to sue can be waived if: You knowingly and voluntarily waive that right, The request to waive that right is made in writing to your attorney or other federally authorized practitioner, or The request is made in person and your attorney or other representative is present. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Burden of proof. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   For court proceedings resulting from examinations started after July 22, 1998, the IRS generally has the burden of proof for any factual issue if you have met the following requirements: You introduced credible evidence relating to the issue. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You complied with all substantiation requirements of the Internal Revenue Code. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 You maintained all records required by the

your tax return is for a corporation, partnership, or trust. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2    The burden of proof does not change on an issue when another provision of the tax laws requires a specific burden of proof with respect to that issue. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Use of statistical information. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   In the case of an individual, the IRS has the burden of proof in court proceedings based on any IRS reconstruction of income solely through the use of statistical information on unrelated taxpayers. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Penalties. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   The IRS has the burden of initially producing evidence in court proceedings with respect to the liability of any individual taxpayer for any penalty, addition to tax, or additional amount imposed by the tax laws. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Recovering litigation or administrative costs. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2   These are the expenses that you

cheap 1099 g form w 2   You will not be treated as the prevailing party if the United States establishes that its position was substantially justified. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 The position of the United States is presumed not to be substantially justified if the IRS: Did not follow its applicable published guidance (such as regulations, revenue rulings, notices, announcements, private letter rulings, technical advice memoranda, and determination letters issued to the taxpayer) in the proceeding (This presumption can be overcome by evidence. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 ), or

($1,200 × . 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 9235). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Because her net profit is less than $5,024 and less than 72. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 189% of her gross income, she can use the nonfarm optional method to figure net earnings of $3,600 (2/3 × $5,400). 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Because these net earnings are higher than her actual net earnings, she can report net earnings of $3,600 for 2013. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Example 2. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Net nonfarm profit less than $5,024 but not less than 72. 2010 taxes cheap

Example 4. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Nonfarm net earnings less than $400. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 Assume that in Example 1 Ann has gross income of $525 and a net profit of $175. 2010 taxes cheap 1099 g form w 2 In this situation, she would not pay any SE tax under either the regular method or the nonfarm optional method because her net earnings under both methods are less than
