OK Folks, let's list our favorite Urban Tax Legends.

I'll start:


1) Receiving a 1099 increases your audit risk.

2) Using the pre-printed IRS label increases your audit risk.

3) Filing late in the filing season near April 15 decreased your audit risk.

4) Filing an extension and filing near Oct 15 decreases your audit risk.

5) Taxpayers over age 65 who are still working don't have to pay Social Security tax.

6) The Amish don't pay income tax.

7) Nurses/police/EMTs on call can deduct the cost of their monthly phone bill since they need to have a phone to keep their job.

8) Firefighters can deduct the cost of their lunch since they are on duty 24 hours a shift.

9) If you show you owe at least $1 instead of getting a refund, you are less likely to be audited.

10) There is a Slavery Reparation tax credit for African Americans who never received their '40 acres and a mule'.

11) You can deduct the cost of your car and all its operating expenses (or mileage) as a business expense if you put advertising on the car.

12) You can deduct the cost of your vacation if you go on a job interview (keep that business card of the interviewer) while away.

Hey Wayne, the other version of #78 is "but I used all the money to buy another one later so I could avoid paying tax." This is a variant on
  1. 79, "I didn't sell that Vanguard mutual fund; I only moved the money to another fund at Vanguard."

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

9 August 2007
that's number 43

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

9 August 2007
I can see it now, in future threads we will no longer have to use words like "oink", we will just write "52" , "48", or "78" and everyone in on the joke will toss their hair back and laugh and laugh.

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

9 August 2007
speaking of which, when a cow laughs, does milk come out of her nose?

Death&Taxes (talk|edits) said:

9 August 2007
There is a subtle difference between 43 and 79. In the former, Mr. Sure I Am Right only sees himself breaking even and sometimes doesn't even know he has suffered a loss. In the latter, however, he insists nothing has to be reported. Make it a hair-breadth.

btw, Kevin, you are borrowing from the old story about how men in prison tell jokes, shouting out numbers. "49" "Hah, hah, hah." Another voice shouts 23 and more laughter ensues. Then Mr. Newby asks his cellmate what is going on and learns that all the men know the jokes by numbers, so he yells '28' but no one laughs.

Punchline: 'Some people just don't know how to tell a joke.'

Chautauqua (talk|edits) said:

86. Breast implants increase my income as a waitress at Hooters, accordingly, they are deductible. Can I section 179 them or must I deduct them over my life expectancy as a structural improvement?

Donniecastleman (talk|edits) said:

10 August 2007
Hey DZ, scout's honor, I work in a country rock band at Hooter's Casino in Vegas, and I NEVER have seen a pair of silicons walking around in there, so they wouldn't be deductible anyway, don't need 'em to work there, haha.

Cmt56ss (talk|edits) said:

10 August 2007
One comment on #86 - when I was still in school, my professor read us a tax case where a stripper argued over the deductibility of breast implants. If I recall correctly she was able to depreciate them as a business expense because they allowed here to earn more money.

Buckshot (talk|edits) said:

10 August 2007
87. Since my child lived with me, my mom, my aunt, my cousin, my neighbor, and my grandmother at some point last year we all qualify for head of household.

NYEA (talk|edits) said:

10 August 2007
Cmt56ss is correct about allowing the deduction BUT the reason was not simply because she could earn more money. The case involved a stripper named Cynthia Hess. In the Tax Court, Judge Pate allowed the deduction but ONLY because she came to the conclusion that there was NO element of personal enhancement in this case.

In an "ordinary" enhancement, a stripper might be able to make more money but the enhancement also brings personal (not business) use. Much like a tooth whitening - not deductible even if it helps the taxpayer in a work situation. You use your teeth on a daily personal basis. BUT, in Ms. Hess's case, she was enhanced to a 56FF size. The Judge felt this was SO FAR from the norm, it was ONLY done for business reasons.

96. I'm planning to talk "off the record" with the RO so I don't have to pay all of my tax liability at once, he'll understand that I have other bills, right?

97. I have to look good to be successful in my career so my jewelry, home furnishings, clothes, car, cat, dog, shoes, dry cleaning, make up, - all of it's deductible, right.

98. But I had a really cool sign made up for my car, so now it's advertising because everywhere I go, I'm advertising my business. That makes it entirely an advertising expense doesn't it.

Uncle Sam (talk|edits) said:

11 August 2007

Actionbsns (talk|edits) said:

18 August 2007
Steve - don't jump on board with #107, it's frustrating enough to hear it around here. Hawaii is still part of the rest of the world. We really are NOT a unique little place with its own set of rules. Although, there is a movement to re-create that.

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

18 August 2007
Yes, but I have often taught in different parts of the country and they say "we don't do that here" or "we don't apply that law here - it is stupid" or some other such nonsense. Like they can pick and choose which laws to apply.

Skasselea (talk|edits) said:

18 August 2007
My point exactly. There are many Hawaiians, especially some of the Native Hawaiians that believe the tax laws don't apply to them. In addition, Hawaii has long been home to many strange tax schemes unseen anywhere else. I've had several clients with scenarios that were definitely unique to Hawaii.

Needless to say I didn't take him on...I got my hands full without taking on someone who wants to get angry with me and argue about the unfairness of his taxes...give me a break.

D&T - we also have an unusually high percentage of forgetful clients who forget their checkbook.

Last year I met with this person and told him that unfortunately the near $150 spent on Girl Scout cookies wasn't a charitable deduction. What's in with the tax papers this year? A photocopy of the order form as documentation. Thirty boxes of thin mints, apparently they are good in the freezer. Also on the 2008 return was his annual $500 non-cash contribution.

I think they still might have qualified as client gifts if you had only sent a card "In your name, we have made a gift of a box of Girl Scout cookies to a worthwhile cause." Don't tell them that your favorite cause is youself.

What happens then? You come into my office because you are trying to marry someone in a foreign country and your taxes need to be current, but you haven't filed since 1992 because people gave you the above advice. Now IRS wants almost $3,000 for back, unfiled 2007 taxes and 2008 and 2009 are going to have similar liabilities because the box for the amount withheld is zero. Then when I go through your stuff, if you would have filed for 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006, there would have been nice refunds available - too late now, statute of limitations has run out.

Tax Writer (talk|edits) said:

I've never seen this thread, but I read Kevin's top post, and I actually think that filing closer to the deadline decreases RANDOM audit risk.

Paul N. Strassels wrote an excellent book many years ago about the IRS. He was a former IRS attorney and he discusses this issue. He argued that the DIF scores are adjusted closer to the filing deadlines in order to accommodate the increasing numbers of tax returns submitted and to help with smoother processing.

As for filing paper returns versus e-file, I don't think that filing on paper necessarily decreases audit risk, but it sure increases processing time. A return can sit in a pile for months at an IRS service center. And the argument is that the later it enters the system, the less time the IRS has to review it. The statute is the same for a return that is e-filed on Feb 1st and processed immediately, and a return that is paper-filed on April 15th and processed 3 months later.

Although I have e-filed in the past, I paper-file my personal returns these days because I have a lot of nominee stuff and I know that e-filed returns don't transmit any meaningful detail. I want the IRS to get my notes.

I watched. That's not funny. It is pathetic.

After November 6th, I can only laugh at this stuff. To believe that it's pathetic, you have to care. Think of it. Harry Reid is Senate Majority Leader and he doesn't have the cerebral horsepower to walk and chew gum at the same time. There is no hope for America. I choose to laugh.

Are you laughing for real or grieving? I am doing the latter, and I still care, even though I would feel better if I didn't. I can't help it.

IRS itself does not help by continuing the term "voluntary compliance". http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-news/tax_gap_report_final_080207_linked.pdf

It's voluntary in the same sense that paying back a bank loan is voluntary. You write the check or they come and get the money.

Me grieve? The America that I grew up in is dead. I will not grieve over it. "The voters have spoken; now they must be punished." Ed Koch. Having escaped the Great Republik of California a few years ago, I am going to celebrate my home in the beautiful tax haven of North Lake Tahoe (Nevada side), enjoy the mountains and alpine lakes and watch with great interest (but litte remorse) as our economy goes down in flames. People get the government they deserve.

"People" spoken as one group. There are many "persons" who do not want or deserve this. Funny you should mention the Great Republik of California and North Lake Tahoe. I've lived in CA my whole life, and just recently my husband and I had a short discussion admitting that ultimately, we may need to leave. Not two months ago I had a similar discussion with a client who is thinking of leaving, and NV was one of the two states that he was considering. I was critical of NV, and he assured me that the Nevada side of Tahoe was fabulous. I'm not great in the cold, so I would need to go somewhere else for a few months. Anyway, maybe someday we'll be neighbors.

JAD, I can't say enough good things about Incline Village.

I love the winters here. You learn to dress so that you don't even feel them. It's not that cold. OK, tennis is impossible, but skiing and snowshoeing make up for it. The mountain biking in the summer is unbelievable. The Flume Trail is nationally renown.

Candy and I and the two dogs look forward to welcoming you and your husband to The Lake. I can show you places that are breathtaking -- breathtaking being ambiguous since I am usually out of breath when I arrive.

Be careful about how you leave California. Cut all ties, especially if you keep a house there. Quit all clubs and church. Join up here. Register your cars in NV, get a NV drivers license, register to vote, minimize your credit card usage on trips back to Kalifornia, and minimize your time there. Move your bank and investment accounts to a Nevada office. Buy a nonresident fishing license if you fish in Calif and also a Nevada resident license. Apply for and receive a Nevada CCW as a resident. Nevada is a "shall issue" state.

As you know, Kalifornia is desperate for money. However, as a lawyer, I have crossed the T's and dotted the I's and would thoroughly enjoy slapping them down in court.

Very nice message. We are at least 4 years out - kids still in high school. I am smiling...on 3/15 even. Incline Village is the place that my client mentioned. I will keep this in mind. Thank you.
