Amendments

Once you sign your tax return, it is considered final, but what if you made a mistake or discovered something after filing that requires correction? In such a situation Form 1040X will need to be filed. If you have questions about income tax return amendments, please feel free to contact our tax attorneys at Enterprise Consultants Group.

It is important to remember that amended returns are not considered to be mandatory. You cannot be prosecuted if you failed to file an amended return. That is, if you thought that the initial tax return you filed was accurate when you signed it. However, if you learn that your return was not properly filed you must amend it and make it accurate. The IRS rarely brings up a criminal prosecution when the taxpayer comes forward and attempts to correct it by processing an amended return. For that reason, it is vital to be proactive. You should fix your initial tax return before the IRS finds your error.

Correcting Everything

Income tax return amendments should be final and accurate. Thus, if you filed an amended return, make sure that everything in it is correct. For that reason, you cannot cherry-pick and make corrections only to items that will get your money back or that will decrease your tax liability.

How Soon Should You Amend It?

You must amend it the soonest possible time. However, if you want to file to get a refund, you must not wait as there is statute of limitations on when a taxpayer can claim a refund.

The Tricky Road of Tax Amendments

If you go and ask other people who amended their tax returns, they would say that the overall process is tricky. It is particularly the case if they did not hire a professional. Filing a return of income must not be taken lightly. It must always be accurate. If you discovered that there are amendments needed, make sure that you go through it, or you can hire a professional to review the return for you.

For some unknown reason, I neglected to file my income taxes for several years. With that, I ended up getting notices from the IRS. I had no knowledge on how to deal with the IRS, so I contacted Enterprise Consultants Group as recommended by a colleague of mine. The firm’s tax attorneys helped me get a good deal. My funds are back. Thanks, Enterprise Consultants Group. Edward Nigel

Before we started working with Enterprise Consultants Group, our company owed $100,000 in past taxes. But the tax attorneys at the Enterprise Consultants Group dealt with the IRS on our behalf. Because of that, we settled our debt for $10,000. The total cost we paid to our tax attorneys was less than the original due. Thank you Enterprise Consultants Group for alleviating our heavy burden Mary

My business received letters from the IRS indicating that they had opened and audit. In know I needed help but I was reluctant. I Google searched and found Enterprise Consultants Group, then called for a free consultation. I was impressed with professionalism knowledge of the consultant that I spoke to so I hired them for my business. During the audit period they were always available to answer my questions.

After my divorce I was left with a heavy tax debt of over $250,000. To make matters worse I was broke and feared that my wages were going to get garnished. I called Enterprise Consultants Group after seeing a TV ad and they quickly got work with resolving my issue. They settled my tax debt for $3500. I quickly borrowed that amount from family and paid it off. Now that I'm tax debt free, my stress level has come down and I'm doing much better with my finances. B. Davis
