IRS Help for Last-Minute Tax Filing Doctors

2011 Tax Tips for 2012 [Are You Ready to File?]

By Children’s Home Society of Florida Foundation

The IRS published information letters last week to assist taxpayers who are filing their taxes before the April 17, 2012 deadline. Doctors, dentists and some other medical professionals may especially need some help.

And, the IRS YouTube channel is the fourth most popular government channel.

The IRS receives about 1 million views per year. Taxpayers may find several YouTube programs helpful. They are available in English, Spanish and American’s Sign Language.

IRS YouTube Programs

* Need more time to file your tax return?
* Last-Minute Tax Tips
* IRS Tax Payment Options
* Owe Taxes but can’t pay?
* When will I get my refund?

Smart Phone Accessible

The IRS YouTube videos are also available on iPhone or Android through the IRS2Go application that may be downloaded through the App Store or Android Marketplace. This is a nice feature for doctors interested in m-health.

For individual physicians who need extra time to file, it is possible to request an extension with Form 4868 (either electronically or by paper). This extension filing requires that you estimate and pay the correct tax, but your time to file is extended to October 15th. If you do not pay the correct tax, there is interest of 3% per year and a late penalty of 0.5% per month on the balance.

The Exceptions

There are three exceptions to the filing date. If you live and work abroad or are on military duty outside the U.S., you may pay on April 17 and file by June 15. Military members serving in Iraq or Afghanistan may file 180 days after departing the combat zone. Finally, several federal disaster areas in the Midwest are permitted to file and pay on May 31.

Need More Time?

Some taxpayers will need more time to pay. If your tax, penalties and interest are $50,000 or less, you may request a payment agreement from the IRS with Form 9465-FS. If you are unemployed or self-employed with a 25% reduction in income for 2011, you may file Form 1127-A to request permission to pay by October 15, 2012. You still must to pay the tax plus interest at that time.


Finally, if you have a substantial overdue tax obligation, you may be able to negotiate an “offer-in-compromise” with the IRS. This will require the IRS to review all of your income and assets to make a determination as to the correct tax payment.

  1. IRS Tweets as Some Taxpayers Extend

    As the April 17 filing date approaches, taxpayers can receive the latest updates from the IRS through Twitter. These Twitter notes are available on http://twitter.com/IRSnews. If you have an Apple or Android smartphone, you may choose to load the free IRS2Go app. It includes the handy “Where’s My Refund” function and also permits you to follow the IRS on Twitter.

    Professionals may choose to follow specific tax advice for CPAs, attorneys and other tax preparers on http://twitter.com/IRStaxpros.

    Many of the tweets offer explanations on how to pay taxes and some of the most common tax deductions and rules.

    The IRS also has its own YouTube channel. The official IRS YouTube channel includes five separate sections. These cover “Tax Tips, Do Your Taxes for Free, Small Business, IRS Tax Pros and Uploaded Videos.”

    If you need to extend, you may watch the YouTube video on filing IRS Form 4868. Filing an extension requires you to estimate and pay your taxes, but you may delay filing until October 15. The payment can be made through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) or by credit or debit card.

    A few taxpayers are given special extensions. Citizens outside the U.S. and military on duty outside America may file and pay on June 15. They will need to pay interest from April 17 through June 15 on those payments. Military serving in combat zones in Iraq or Afghanistan have 180 days after departing the combat zone to file and pay tax. Finally, several Midwestern areas affected by the tornadoes and other natural disasters are permitted to file and pay on May 31 st.

  2. Fake IRS Sites Growing

    Even though the 20011 tax season is over for most of us, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) reported recently that there has been an increase in the growth of fake IRS websites. Criminals who are attempting to acquire taxpayer information are creating these sites. The rapidly growing number of fake IRS sites are frequently based overseas.

    In 2006, the IRS identified 245 fake sites. This number grew to 14,000 sites in 2011. For 2012, the IRS expects to find over 20,000 sites.

    TIGTA official Russell George stated to Congress on April 19, “While the amount of fraudulent tax refunds the IRS detects and prevents is substantial, the IRS does not know how many identity thieves are filing fictitious tax returns and how much revenue is being lost resulting from the issuance of fraudulent tax refunds.”

    The fake IRS sites are commonly used to contact U.S. taxpayers. If the operators of these sites can obtain your confidential information, they frequently will apply for tax refunds.

    The principal strategy for identity thieves is to send out a false email or social media appeal. The “phishing” email includes links to the fake IRS site. It also may install “malware” or code on the identity theft victim’s computer that will aid the thief in the future.

    On http://www.irs.gov, there are specific guidelines for protecting yourself from these fake IRS sites.

    1. IRS Contacts – Any official contact from the IRS will use a regular letter or phone call. The IRS does not contact taxpayers through email or social media. Any contacts you receive through email or social media should not be trusted.

    2. Suspicious emails – If you receive an email claiming it is from the IRS, do not respond. Do not open any attachments. Do not click on any links to websites. Without opening the email, forward it to phishing@irs.gov. Then delete the suspicious email.

    3. Suspicious Websites – If you are contacted and given a link to a suspicious website, do not click on the link or any attachments. Send the web address of that site to phishing@irs.gov.

    4. Suspicious Phone Calls – If you receive a phone call from a person claiming to be from the IRS and you are concerned, ask that person for a callback number and his or her IRS employee badge number. Then call the IRS to confirm the identity of your caller.

    If you would like further information, go to http://www.irs.gov. On the IRS website, use the search box at the upper right and type in “phishing.” Click on the search button to view IRS web pages that provide further information.
