April 13th is the birthday of one of America’s founding fathers. He was born in 1743 in Virginia. Jefferson was one of the original writers of ‘The Declaration of Independence’ which was intended to free America of Britain’s sovereignty over the colonies and thus founding the United States of America. 

Aside from ‘The Constitution’, ‘The Declaration of Independence’ is one of the most important documents of American history. After a year of war the American colonist were growing weary of the many taxes levied on the colonist to pay for Britain’s wars and not being represented in their political system. Even though taxes were the primary reason for American Independence other aspects played their part.

To this day taxes continue to be a major debate for individuals and businesses. There are people who protest paying their taxes by evading the bill all together or hiding their funds in offshore accounts. Eventually, the IRS will catch up and when they do a tax lawyer can the only defense against fines and seizures.

Although there are many people who evade their taxes, others simply make mistakes on their returns. No matter what the reason the IRS will still expect payment and their fines can drive a tax bill very high from which a tax attorney can offer relief. The Fed just need the tax money to keep our government functioning. If a person is facing problems with the IRS, a tax lawyer can be their best ally and allow them independence from the persistence of the tax man.
