It's been a crazy year. Grateful we could represent our clients through the multiple offer situation to get a home!   "We are very thankful to Jeff and Grace Safrin for the incredible work they did in helping us find the perfect home in Munster, IN. For family reasons, Munster was our only choice for a home, and for good reasons, finding the right home in Munster was a challenge from the get-go-because many in the nearby Chicago market are looking to get out of Illinois but stay in the metro area. Jeff and Grace said it may take time, but we will find you a home you will love. We were prepared to wait up to a year, but Jeff and Grace found us the perfect home in less than 90 days, which was an incredible accomplishment given the popularity of Munster, as well as the crazy 2021 housing m...

I was courting a builder last summer and as I showed him Valparaiso. He just could not get over how much Valparaiso reminded him of Naperville of yesteryear. Well, that got me to thinking about the similarities between the two communities on how much they are alike and how different. One of the most glaring is the Cost of Living I like to think I hit the major points  Real Estate Utilities Transportation Food/Groceries Healthcare Taxes  how did I do?

When clients come into my Hobart IN office after an IRS audit with a tax bill they don’t believe they owe, we usually will talk about 2 options for resolving the tax debt: Audit Reconsideration or doing a doubt as to liability offer.Audit reconsideration is a process where you can ask the IRS to review information that was not submitted during the original tax audit (along with documentation that was submitted with the audit). It is also used after the client submits a tax return after the IRS has created a Substitute for return (SFR)(when the client didn’t file a return), when it is believed the IRS made a computational or processing error and it can also be used when the IRS denies certain credits that the client feels they are entitled to.There are situations where the IRS will not c...

When a company gets behind on their payroll taxes and IRS penalties and interest get added in, it can become a nightmare for the company to try to catch up. Worse, as is often the case when clients come into my Hobart, IN office, if you are one of the people responsible for payroll tax preparation and payment process, there is the potential for the IRS to assess a personal liability against you and in helping collect this tax debt, and one of my priorities is to try to minimize the amount of personal exposure to my client.As many business owners and accountants know, there are two type of payroll taxes that a company has to remit to the IRS.          The trust fund taxes – these are taxes that are withheld from an employee’s pay check and held in trust until they are remitted to the IRS...

I represent clients for tax debt resolution in Northwest Indiana. One of the questions I get asked is when you owe a tax debt, when is the best time to start the tax resolution process? There are several schools of thought on this and I will address a few of them here, then give you my thoughts based on my experiences.One of the common schools of thought is when the client comes into my office is they have ignored the situation and the IRS has already levied bank accounts and their paycheck, creating a financial hardship for the client. Should the client decide to retain me, I will usually immediately reach out to the IRS and try to get a hold on collections to stop the next levy from happening and am usually told I have x number of days to propose a resolution to the client’s tax debt....

With the focus of my Hobart, IN practice being tax representation, tax liens are something I deal with relative frequency. I have heard the comment “I would sell my house, but there is a tax lien” more times than I can count. So, the real question is can you sell a house when there is an IRS tax lien?In Short, you absolutely can sell your house, even if there is an IRS tax lien on it. The IRS will be more than happy to allow the house to be sold. The only thing the IRS requires is that the seller who owes money to the government not walk away with money that the IRS should have received.For example, if the taxpayer owes the IRS $100,000. They own a house worth $400,000. I will explain what the IRS would get in each of the following circumstances:-          Taxpayer sells and owes the ba...
