Taxpayers should find out if they need to make estimated or additional tax payments

The U.S. tax system operates on a pay-as-you-go basis. This means that taxpayers need to pay most of their tax during the year, as the income is earned or received. Taxpayers must generally pay at least 90 percent of their taxes throughout the year through withholding, estimated or additional tax payments or a combination of the two. If they don’t, they may owe an estimated tax penalty when they file.

Taxpayers can pay their taxes throughout the year anytime. They must select the tax year and tax type or form when paying electronically. Filers paying by check should make it out to the “United States Treasury” and indicate the tax year and type of taxes they are paying.

10 Steps to Avoid Business and Employee Fraud

Small and mid-sized businesses are more vulnerable to fraud than larger organizations, and the effects can be more damaging. The types of fraud that businesses need to be aware of generally fall into three categories: Theft, financial statement fraud and asset misuse. Theft, or misappropriation of assets, makes up the majority of fraudulent activity, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

These thefts, either by directly stealing cash, claiming bogus expenses or taking other property, are usually done by employees. This is a tough fact for many small business owners, who often consider their employees as friends and even members of an extended work family. The other primary types of fraud involve financial statement reporting and general corruption, such as kickbacks or other schemes in which the employee benefits personally by violating their responsibility to the employer.

How the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act Have Affected Small Business Hiring

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has been in effect for nearly nine months, and its impact on hiring is still unfolding among the nation’s 30.2 million small businesses. The tax cuts were advertised as an avenue to fuel spending on jobs and capital, giving small business owners the funds to hire more.

However, in a survey conducted by ZipBooks, 88.3% of small business owners reported no plans to change hiring after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In fact, nearly 5% actually planned to hire fewer employees. This may explain recent reports that small business hiring has fallen in May and June.

We recently surveyed 663 small business owners and freelancers, trying to soak up as much information as we could on their response to the tax reform. They represent a variety of fields—from carpet cleaning to e-commerce—and they live in different regions across the United States. We asked, “What effect on your hiring plans has the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act had?”

Sales Tax Exemption Certificates: Collect the Tax or Get the Doc

For every taxable transaction making its way through the marketplace, somebody should be collecting sales tax.

Your clients that have businesses selling into the resale, wholesale or exempt entity markets fall under a vast web of compliance duties, with the onus on the vendor to get it right. When it comes to sales tax, businesses are best served to “collect the tax or get the doc,” which means to get a legitimate document attesting to the proper exemption that applies to that transaction.

Someone Else’s Problem

Every transaction between a buyer and a seller should be taxed or documented, which is a lot of work. Instead, many companies take the risk that they won’t get caught, while others assume they are exempt from sales tax collection because they are selling to a reseller or non-taxable entity instead of the end-user.

10 Warning Signs of Tax Data Theft

The IRS, state tax agencies and companies in the tax industry are calling on tax professionals to be alert to the subtle signs of data theft, noting continuing cases where practitioners are victims of theft and don’t even know it.

Cybercriminals often leave few signs of their burglary until the fraudulent tax returns are filed and clients are harmed. This is one more reason tax professionals should use strong security protections to prevent data theft from occurring.

This is the ninth in a series called “Protect Your Clients; Protect Yourself: Tax Security 101.” The Security Summit awareness campaign is intended to provide tax professionals with the basic information they need to better protect taxpayer data and to help prevent the filing of fraudulent tax returns.

Although the Security Summit is making progress against tax-related identity theft, cybercriminals continue to evolve, and data thefts at tax professionals’ offices are on the rise. Thieves use stolen data from tax practitioners to create fraudulent returns that are harder to detect.

Tax Reform Could Lead to a Shock in April 2019

Every summer, Mike McClure looks at his income tax withholding. The Apple Valley man doesn't want to give the government what he calls a "free loan" by having too much money withheld from his paycheck. He also doesn't want to end up owing a bunch to the IRS when he files his taxes in April.

In the past, McClure's system has led to little more than minor tweaks. This year, under the new federal tax law, he will owe the federal government $6,800 in April if he doesn't radically alter his withholding for the remainder of the 2018 tax year.

"This whole tax-cut thing was sold to middle-class Americans as 'we're all going to get a tax cut,' " McClure said. "This wasn't what I expected."

New Rules for Submission of 1099 Forms

Rules and deadlines for filing 1099 forms are constantly revised and it’s important for tax professionals to stay on top of the changes. Here are two changes coming for the upcoming tax filing season involving 1099-MISC and 1099-K.

New IRS rules for submitting late 1099-MISC with Box 7

Starting in January 2019, the IRS will institute new rules regarding how to submit 1099-MISC with Box 7 and those without Box 7 after the due date of January 31, 2019. If submitted improperly, companies may receive penalty notices for their non-Box 7 1099-MISC forms. These new rules apply to both paper and electronic filing.

Costly Mistakes of a Sales Tax Audit

No business wants to be subject to an audit. But if it does happen to one of your clients, how can you best advise them on what to do? You may not offer audit services as part of your accounting practice, but you can offer sound guidance and provide a common-sense approach to help your client survive their review.

When a business owner receives a notice of routine audit, there are typically three responses: (1) panic, (2) non-responsiveness, or (3) careful planning. There are many effective and structured ways for your client to handle an audit. Participating the audit without sufficient planning, documentation and a good understanding of the rules can almost ensure that the audit is an unpleasant, costly experience.

Bernanke, Paulson and Geithner say they bailed out Wall Street to help Main Street

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and New York Fed President Timothy Geithner reflected on the financial crisis during a forum in Washington, D.C.

They insisted that their actions, while distasteful to the public, were necessary.

The three devised a series of programs that helped recapitalize the financial system and bring the country out of the worst downturn since the Great Depression.

A decade later, the three officials who helped pull the U.S. out of the financial crisis now struggle with the choices they made, particularly considering that the public still sees the moves as a bailout for Wall Street.

The IRS is ending amnesty for your financial accounts overseas

Since 2009, more than 56,000 taxpayers have voluntarily disclosed their foreign accounts, paying $11.1 billion in back taxes, interest and penalties.

Willful failure to file a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, or FBAR, could result in a penalty of $100,000 or 50 percent of your balance in the foreign account, whichever is greater.

If you're holding a bank account or an investment account overseas, you're running out of time to come clean to the IRS.

If You're Betting On A Great Football Season, Don't Forget Tax Law Changes

This morning, I was greeted on my laptop with two words: Draft Day? It seems that my brother is eager to get our fantasy football season going. He’s got a point since the National Football League (NFL) officially kicked off its season last night.

(A petty sister might note that his Patriots lost to her Eagles in the Super Bowl last year, but not me.)

Fantasy football is a big deal in my family. We only play for bragging rights, but many leagues around the country this season will play for money. Still other sports fans will eschew the fantasy teams altogether and will bet directly on the games (Atlanta was the odds on favorite last night against Philadelphia).

Just as with gambling, fantasy sports winnings are reportable on your taxes. But - at least for now - fantasy sports are considered games of skill. That means that fantasy winners are treated a little bit different for tax purposes. For example, a fantasy sports winner may receive a form 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income, while winners at a casino or gaming house may receive a form W-2G, Certain Gambling Winnings.
