Serving Self-Employed Professionals And Independent Contractors In Minnesota and Western Wisconsin
Self-employed professionals and independent contractors are always under the watchful eye of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Minnesota Department of Revenue (MDR). Self-employed people who fail to pay the required amount of estimated income taxes and self-employment taxes (FICA) face an assessment for the total amount of taxes due plus penalties and interest. In addition to the taxes due during the current tax year, auditors may choose to review returns going back several years. If any red flags are found, the financial damages can be devastating.
If you are a self-employed person in who resides in Minnesota and is facing an audit or has already received a notice of additional taxes due, call the law firm of Pridgeon & Zoss, PLLC in Edina.
Self-employed professionals are entitled to business deductions that tax authorities often question. Our lawyers are self-employed tax law attorneys who understand the tax code for self-employed individuals. We will aggressively fight to help you protect the deductions and credits to which you are entitled.
Some options for helping self-employed individuals who are facing large unpaid tax balances due include:
- Offer in compromise, whereby the taxpayer and tax authorities agree to a lesser amount of taxes owed
- Installment agreements, with the tax authorities allowing monthly or quarterly payments over a period of time
- Tax appeal to challenge an auditor decision or the assessment of taxes owed
- Tax litigation in tax court to dispute the amount owed
- Negotiating with the tax authorities to place the account into a currently not collectible status for temporary relief from payment
