Tax Resolution Expert, Attorney Lance Drury, Says Getting Too Creative with Claims Could Cause IRS Audit.

| Apr 27, 2015 | Uncategorized

Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” acknowledges there are people who are always willing to get creative, even outrageously creative with their claims and advises against it. St Genevieve, MO, April 21, 2015: Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” posted a new article on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “Will Your Tax Return Activate an Audit?” Getting creative with tax returns is the arena of CPA’s. However their creativity can’t compare to that of some taxpayers. As Mr. Drury writes, “Most taxpayers are aware that there are blatant mistakes that will cause the red flags to fly at the IRS. Yet there are those who are willing to get very creative at tax time to save a little money.” He goes on to say, “The typical areas that most attempt to play dangerously in are fairly consistent. However, others take their creativity seriously and not only trigger audits, but lots of laughs.” From pets and unborn children, to horse ranches and yachts reclassified at “Water Computers”, from weddings to plastic surgery and massages, hunting trips and hobby horse farms, Drury shares outrageous claims published on the AccountingToday.com website.  Drury states, “The IRS is not the best audience for comedy routines. So don’t try any funny business with them.” (www.accountingtoday.com/gallery/most-outrageous-tax-deductions-2015-73444-1.html) And, as Drury reminds, “do keep in mind that the IRS recently announced it will not require taxpayers to amend their returns or pay back any extra money received in their refunds due to incorrect health care-related tax information on Form 1095-A. This is good news for individuals who may have mistakenly filed an inaccurate return. However, the IRS is not forgiving of all inaccurate returns no matter how funny or outrageous they are.” The entire article can be found at /will-your-tax-return-activate-an-audit/ About Lance Drury Tax Attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R.
