The IRS has announced a new 10-year plan that will put increased scrutiny on wealthy taxpayers. After getting an $80 billion budget increase from last year’s Inflation Reduction Act, the IRS will now be paying more attention to those earning above $400,000 per year. This means that the wealthy clients of tax professionals must be aware of how this new plan may affect their tax filing and planning strategies. 

According to Rochelle Hodes, principal in the Washington National Tax Office of the accounting firm Crowe in Washington, D.C more than half of the agency’s new funding has been allocated to enforcement. This plan makes it clear that they will increase audits of wealthy people and businesses. This move is seen as an effort to close the gap between those who are able to evade taxes and those who cannot. The new funding will also help in developing better tools and resources for auditors and investigators to detect any tax evasion.

With the IRS having a three-year window to start an audit, it is important to consider how long it will take for them to step up enforcement. As the IRS has been struggling with budget cuts, the agency has had difficulty in keeping up with its duties. This means that taxpayers may not be aware of potential audits until several years after filing their taxes.

Therefore, one question is how long it will take for the IRS to catch up and start enforcing its rules? Will they be able to do so in time for 2023 tax return audits? This is a crucial question that all taxpayers should consider when filing their taxes.

The Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) plan to assess taxes on individuals with taxable income of over $400,000 has raised many questions. One of the most common questions is what happens if a taxpayer has taxable income under $400,000. Is that the threshold? To answer this question, it is important to understand some of the terms used by the IRS in their plan and how they relate to taxation.

With taxes being an ever-evolving landscape, wealthy clients and business owners must be aware of the potential tax issues down the road. While a salary is subject to payroll taxes, distributions are not. This means that business owners must choose between taking a salary or distributions depending on their financial situation.

The IRS is likely to crack down on business owners that rely heavily on distributions for their income. The IRS has been known to audit businesses that have a large amount of distributions and take legal action if they find any discrepancies in the reporting of such income. 

As a client, it is important to be mindful of the tax moves you make. While you may have gotten away with certain risky tax moves in the past, it is unlikely that you will be able to do so in the future. With increased scrutiny from the IRS and other regulatory bodies, it is essential to think carefully about the risks associated with any tax move that you make. This is especially true when it comes to complex transactions or investments that involve multiple parties. By taking a careful approach and consulting with a qualified professional, clients can ensure they are making informed decisions and minimizing their risk of facing penalties or other legal repercussions.
