Tax Resolution Expert, Attorney Lance Drury Says That While Filing Taxes is Not Funny, Some Claims Are.

Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” shares funny attempted tax claims made by taxpayers trying to save a few tax dollars only to be saved by their CPA’s from making fatal mistakes that would lead to an audit. St Genevieve, MO, April 14, 2015: Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” posted a new blog on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “Are Your Tax Return Claims Funny, Fatal or Both?” Depending on whether the tax preparer allows them to get through to the IRS some tax claims can be both funny and fatal.Lance Drury has experienced the seriousness of the IRS and the silliness of some taxpayers. He writes, “Filing taxes is no laughing matter, as anyone who’s tangled with the IRS knows. However, some taxpayers have wildly creative ideas of what constitutes a legitimate claim and come up with some that are outrageously funny.” He adds, “They’re generally fatal too, if they make it through to the IRS.”Sharing a few of the funniest ones he’s seen lately, Drury asks, “Have you ever heard of a ‘water computer’?” He answers, “Me neither until I saw this on AccountingToday.com. One CPA actually had to tell a client they could not claim their sailboat as a ‘water computer’!”According to Drury taxpayers have attempted to claim Botox treatments, plastic surgery, speeding tickets and the cost of having a vehicle impounded by the police. In regards to the beauty treatments Drury says, “These are items that taxpayers frequently try to slip in claiming that their professions require a certain appearance. Nice try, but no cigar!”He tells readers, “For a complete list of current outrageous tax claims, visit AccountingToday.com. And if you want to be a comedian, run with it!” Drury slips in the last word, “If any clients get in IRS trouble, give me a call. I may not be funny, but I am effective!”The entire blog can be found at http://www.lancedrurylaw.com/are-your-tax-return-claims-funny-fatal-or-both/About Lance DruryTax Attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R.
