According to BusinessReport.com, “Louisiana continues to slide in the Tax Foundation’s annual “State Business Tax Climate Index,” with the latest ranking placing the state at 41st overall, four spots below last year’s ranking of 37, for having one of the least competitive tax codes in the nation.” Baton Rouge, LA taxpayers are subject to a 4% annual state income tax. Yes, that means Baton Rouge businesses and taxpayers must pay close attention to tax implications and preparation. A simple mistake can result in IRS scrutiny.
The IRS has hired an army of new tax officers to collect past due tax bills, follow up on unfiled tax returns, and track down tax evaders. This has increased the probability of the average citizen being caught up in an audit. IRS audits are extremely stressful and if you are not aware of your rights, you can be negatively affected by any decision the IRS makes. Hiring Tax Relief Systems to help you with your audit and other IRS negotiations, will greatly increase your chances of a positive result. If you have already received a notification that the IRS has determined that you owe a large amount above $10,000, then contact Tax Relief Systems post haste. Time is not on your side.
