WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?
- It's 2023 - Happy New Year!
- The 2022 U.S. return filing season will begin this Spring. Thanks to the many Americans who trust my work in this area. It's actually great working with you!
- Persons learning of their U.S. return filing obligations are doing catch-up return sets at any time of the year.
- Good news: The IRS has announced it has hired several thousand new customer service staff with a focus on, among other things, better phone assistance and responsiveness. Thanks, President Biden!
- During the winter off-season, I continue to take on new clients, and I remain Norway's only IRS PTIN-registered U.S. return preparer. I'm also working with a partner in the states who assists me with new demand for services for Americans in Norway.
Don't be scammed!
The IRS release a lit of 'Dirty Dozen' tax scams each year. You will find the latest one at www.irs.gov. Here is a recent list: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-unveils-dirty-dozen-list-of-tax-scams-for-2020-americans-urged-to-be-vigilant-to-these-threats-during-the-pandemic-and-its-aftermath
In 2021, they added to that list. From their advice, I suggest focus on these:
-Do not take verbal (non-wriitten) tax return form advice from anyone who does not hold an actively licensed and registered PTIN.
-DO DEMAND the PTIN number of persons who wish to give you US tax return advice. Keep copies of their statements for your records. Report unlicensed actors.
-Do not be 'warned into' filing forms you do not owe to the IRS.
-NEVER just show your US tax return to anyone who asks to see it. There are VERY LIMITED circumstances when you would need to show your US Return to anyone.
