The U.S. Tax Code is voluminous and difficult to understand. If you're like most Americans, you probably could use a handy, reliable source of tax advice for those occasions when you have a question or need assistance with your taxes.
Here are some recommendations for finding tax advice when you need it:
- An experienced accountant or tax attorney can answer your questions and advise you on tax planning issues. They can also help you prepare your tax returns and deal with the Internal Revenue Service when required.
- Most local libraries have copies of the current tax code in book format available for public use. They typically have federal tax forms available as well.
- The Internet has a multitude of pages of free tax advice available for your browsing pleasure, but be sure to take what you read there with a grain of salt. Not everything you read on the Internet is true so be sure to verify your findings with other sources.
- The IRS website at www.irs.gov has a wealth of useful tax advice and information, but you'll have to decipher it on your own.
- Your local IRS field office has agents available to help you with your tax questions and problems. You can usually just show up without an appointment, but you might have to wait in line for some time before it becomes your turn to speak with an agent.
You can find tax advice and resources in many places, including the web. Just be careful to choose a reliable and competent source and verify everything you read with a second source.
