In this digital age, many of us turn to apps and software to manage our finances. However, not consulting with a tax professional about your Bitcoin investments can be a mistake, as technology can never replace human creativity and innovation.
Bitcoin is currently witnessing a huge growth rate after it gained the attention of mainstream investors in early 2017. While Bitcoin is attracting a lot of investors it has also attracted the IRS, which is currently finalizing the details of how it will apply the tax code to Cryptocurrency investments, but one thing is for sure, that the IRS will apply taxes on Bitcoin investments.
At Ruchi Gupta CPA LLC we specialize in rules and regulations of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrency taxes.

Did you know that you can settle your debt with the IRS for just pennies on the dollar with their Offer in Compromise program? The program allows taxpayers to settle with the IRS on tax debt that has been incorrectly assessed or for liabilities they cannot afford to pay.
The IRS Code states: "We will accept an Offer in Compromise when it is unlikely that we can collect the full amount owed and the amount you offer reasonably reflects the collection potential..." (Internal Revenue Code section 7122).
There is no preset bottom limit that the IRS will accept to settle your debt especially if your offer is done "right." The key is to determine the least amount that the IRS will accept from you before you make the offer.

Estate planning on your own can be complicated and costly. And the list is endless... state taxes, bureaucracy, probate courts, unfair appraisals, health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRA's, 401K's, annuities, burial or cremation costs, and intent regarding death-postponing treatment to name a few. Not knowing your legal and financial rights often ends up costing you more in the end.
Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Could an heir be too young to inherit? Should the inheritance be given at a certain age? Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules, delays, and costs?
Planning what happens to your estate when you're gone can seem frustrating and intimidating without qualified help.
You may feel that you're too young to care about estate planning. Or, perhaps the reminder of death makes you uncomfortable. You might be tempted to put the whole thing off, assuming that it will just take care of itself. In all cases, estate planning ends up saving your family lots of time, heartache and money.
And we can help.
Every estate planning situation is different. In order to help you, we want to know you, your unique situation, and the nature of your relationships. We offer discussion, recommendations and useful research tools to make your planning simple, efficient, and worry-free.
