Are you burdened with the tax debt of a current or former spouse? Have you just received an IRS computerized or "correction" notice? Are you in danger of having your property seized? Has your tax return been selected for an audit? Is the IRS knocking on your door? If you've answered "yes" to any of these questions, you're not alone: more than twenty-five million taxpayers are faced with the terrifying prospect of dealing with audits, assessments, or other IRS problems every year. But with all the books devoted to how to prepare your taxes, there's never been one that explains how to get yourself out of trouble easily, legally, and inexpensively -- until now. With The IRS Problem Solver, veteran tax expert Dan Pilla offers the first comprehensive guide to dealing with the most common IRS problems taxpayers confront, from face-to-face audits to fraud penalties. Pilla's book is an indispensable preventive tool for all who file their own taxes—and a necessity for anyone who's just received a notice that the wolf is at the door.

Do you suffer nightmares of the IRS knocking on your door, making an unannounced visit to your work, or placing a levy on your bank account, wages or social security? Or perhaps in your nightmare, the IRS is closing your business or seizing your assets, including even your home? These fears are justified. The IRS is a very powerful and scary agency. Countless stories abound of individuals, families and businesses that have been financially wiped out by the IRS. Tax problems are not unusual. Not only are there millions of Americans that are known tax delinquents, there are also millions that have not filed tax returns for years. And most are naturally reluctant to start now and risk detection and a crushing tax liability. But there is one item of good news: It is now easier than ever before to resolve tax matters with the IRS. The IRS Offer In Compromise (OIC) program encourages delinquent taxpayers to settle their back taxes. . . often for pennies on the dollar! We will carefully guide you, explain the law, and work you through each step of the OIC process, including completing the required forms, filing the offer and negotiating your best deal. And, if you are having trouble, you can always call us (the authors) the contact information can be found in the About the Authors section in the front of this book.

NBC Today show nutrition and diet guru Madelyn Fernstrom and award-winning neuroscientist and pharmacologist John Fernstrom —partnering with AARP— present the ultimate guide to food and medicine interaction. Millions of Americans take prescription drugs to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or other conditions. But beware: The foods you eat and the medications you take could be working against each other. Don’t Eat This If You’re Taking That takes the mystery out of food and medication interactions. This easy-to-use guide details foods that can interfere with the action of the medication—whether taken for the short or long term. In this book, readers can easily find a medication, see what foods to avoid, and make smart swaps. We all believe a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products is part of healthy eating—right? Not always. Dr. Fernstrom explains exactly what foods to avoid when and why. For instance, If you’re taking cholesterol medicine, you should cut out—or cut down on—grapefruit. On a blood thinner? Avoid dark green veggies. If you’re on thyroid medication, nix the soy. And more small diet changes with big health payoffs! As an added bonus, each chapter offers a “Dietary Supplements Alert” box, providing the most up-to-date information on interactions with vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements. With this concise, scientifically based guide, consumers can easily personalize their eating plan to work with, not against, their medications.

One Man's Quest to Turn Around the Most Unpopular Organization in America

When Charles O. Rossotti became Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service in 1997, the agency had the largest customer base—and the lowest approval rating—of any institution in America. Mired in scandal, caught in a political maelstrom, and beset by profound management and technology problems, the IRS was widely dismissed as a hopelessly flawed enterprise. In Many Unhappy Returns, Rossotti—the first businessperson to head the IRS—recounts the remarkable story of his leadership and transformation of this much-maligned agency. In the glare of intense public scrutiny, he effected dramatic changes in the way the IRS did business—while it continued to collect $2 trillion in revenue. Through fascinating accounts of heated Congressional hearings, encounters with Washington bigwigs, frank exchanges with taxpayers and employees, and risky turnaround strategies, Rossotti serves up a colorful story of leadership and change against daunting odds. He also underscores why every honest taxpayer should demand reform in the broader U.S. tax system. Infused with keen wit and hard-won business wisdom, Many Unhappy Returns illuminates the perils and possibilities of leading large, complex organizations in a transparent world.
