It is Important to Prioritize the Debts and Keep Track of Returns Filed

June 29, 2017

It’s important to know what debt is priority and what debt is non-priority. It’s also important to know whether or not you filed your returns. A lot of our clients, especially the business owners, have un-filed returns and sometimes, they don’t even know about it. I had a gentleman the other day that had un-filed returns for 2011, and he didn’t even know. And he said “No. I filed my tax return for 2011” and he said “No, I couldn’t do the IRS.’ He called his tax guy; his tax guy forgot to mail it in. So, they were trying to correct some — a debt that they claimed he owed for 2011 that he didn’t owe once he filed the return. So, sometimes, you may be in trouble with the IRS and not even know about it because your tax preparer hasn’t done what they’re supposed to do.
