The information presented in these pages is believed accurate as of the date the page was posted to the Internet.  However, tax law is always undergoing change, so the technical information presented herein cannot be - and is not - guaranteed to be up-to-date.  

Please understand that the information provided herein is solely intended to make you aware of possible solutions to your tax problems, or to make you more familiar with the tax treatment of specific types of income or expenses.  You will not become an expert simply by reading the information.    However, understanding as much as you can about a particular topic will make you more effective in communicating with your tax professional, or the tax agency. 

Often, code sections will interact with each other - meaning that a specific transaction could have impact in more than one area of a return, or require some change to a prior year return that must be addressed. 

 Unless you have an overall understanding of the Internal Revenue Code, attempting to represent yourself in an audit or appeal, or to prepare your own return when you have sophisticated issues to contend with, is not recommended.

The applicability of the information contained herein to your financial situation will always depend upon your personal facts and circumstances.   Before taking any action based upon the information contained on this site, please - contact us or another tax professional for personalized guidance
