There are few things as scary in an Austin resident's life as receiving a letter from the Internal Revenue Service. Even before opening the letter, taxpayers imagine the myriad ways in which their life is about to change because of the news contained in the notice. Whether it is to point out a mistake, impose a penalty or declare an audit, taxpayers may end up spending the next couple of months going back and forth with the IRS without ever really understanding what they need to do.
Austin couples that are newly separated or going through a divorce have enough on their plate without having to worry about how their new marital status will affect their taxes. Navigating these new waters can be tricky, as many have most likely not had to consider these issues previously. It can be complicated from the onset, as couples try to figure out whether they are married.
