Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions assures his readers there are no flabbergasting or irrelevant questions when it comes to taxes while he shares a couple of questions posed in a recent industry article.
Houston, TX – March 14, 2019 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled “No Flabbergasting Tax Questions.” Mr. Fowler indicates that while there are new questions this year, most are ones he’s heard more than once.
Fowler writes, “I’ve been doing taxes for a wide range of individual and business clients for many years. I often hear the same questions asked from year to year.” He continues, “And, every now and then I’ll be asked questions that are always prefaced with, “this is probably a stupid question, but…” My reaction is always the same,” he says. According to Fowler, “When it comes to taxes, there simply are no stupid or flabbergasting questions. Taxes are complicated and some of the laws seem pretty ridiculous and convoluted.”
Fowler says, “When I came across an article at accountingtoday.com entitled, “The most flabbergasting questions from clients for tax season,” my interest was piqued.” He adds, “I’m sharing some of the questions here to let my readers know that while some questions may seem silly, there are usually reasons why they aren’t. So much misinformation exists about taxes that it’s easy to get confused.”
“The very first of the so-called “flabbergasting” questions,” writes Fowler, “is: “Do I really need to file”. The answer to that is always a resounding “Yes!” Many people have an idea – which is a common misunderstanding – that when people reach a certain age they no longer have to file federal tax returns. The only time you don’t have to file is if you don’t make enough money and fall below the income filing requirements. That is not age-related. Even after you pass away, you may need someone to file your final tax return. So, even death doesn’t give you a pass!”
