Someone told me the IRS never audits anyone who isn’t making more than $100K. I don’t know who told me that but I know that isn’t so.

Taxes are full of crazy rumors.  High employee business expenses with moderate income are a really big big target on your back.  To make matters worse the IRS has been doing a lot more of these types of audits.  I believe that a lot of IRS employees used to process returns, with electronic filing not so many returns to process.  These workers have gone from clerk typist to auditors and the results are not good for taxpayers.  I’m advising my clients who have these expenses to either get a reimbursement plan or make sure they can document every expense they claim.  I think going forward there will be so many of these audits there’s no upside to “fudging the numbers”  in this area.

Basically I am just a tax nerd, have been all my life. However I have found the more open you are to opportunities the better off you will be in this world. That makes my what is know as an open networker on Linkedin, I will connect with anyone. I am not an expert on Linkedin by any means but one day when I was asking someone to connect I mentioned that I had just been refilled on invites. My new connect asked how I did that. I used that same line for the next month and got asked the same question four times. I started thinking there was a lot of little things it took my sometime to learn. Through this blog I plan to share some of those "Linked Secrets"
