[Best Syndication News] The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is reminding taxpayers to watch out for twelve different tax scams when preparing and filing your tax returns this year. The IRS calls these tax scams the “dirty dozen.” The IRS says that it is too good to be true, well it probably is and you should exercise caution when this seems to be the case. Tax schemes are illegal they warn and can lead to prison time and fines to both the scammer as well as the person filing the taxes.

Watch out and Avoid these Dirty Dozen Tax Scams:

1. Return Preparer Fraud – The tax person preparing the documents to file will save the taxpayer money, but in turn the tax preparer will charge an extra high fee for the service. If the numbers are not legitimate you are responsible for the information to be correct. Tax preparers might promise getting you a huge refund but often take more for their fee too. Ask for their preparer tax identification number (PTIN) and shop around for what their fees are before hiring them and ask for references from others that have used their services.

The used geeky scientist guys to portray hip hop rapper dudes in a song where they show how cool and strong their paper towels are because they have interlocking fibers. They demonstrate that the pool balls be held up by a Bounty paper towel, even when adding water. I can see kid's across the US using this as their science fair project. At the end they have fun by rolling one of them up in the paper towels. The Bounty Paper Towel youtube video is a good example of promoting their product in a fun way that educates.

An office manager is one of the most bittersweet positions there are in any company. Do it well and no-one notices. They assume that everything takes care of itself. But as soon as something isn't working or operates like it shouldn't then the blame game starts and people are looking for you to play it with.

The position is an all encompassing one. Simply put, often the office manager is assigned any task which hasn't yet be filled. If something is needed to be done, the simplest thing will be to just lump the office manager with it. This isn't necessarily fair but then being the office manager isn't usually always fair.

It crosses across the whole gamut of the company - everything from accounting to payroll to human resources. Because of this, if the office manager does well they are in a good position to be promoted because they have a great knowledge of the company. So while it can be stressful if you do well the upside is great. This is the thing about a high risk-high reward position.

How does a Small Business Owner Cancel Credit Card Debt?

Fri, 04 Dec 2009 21:34:46 +0000

BSN Stock Photo

There are many options for small business owners to get out from under credit card debt. While many of the same principles apply to individuals getting out of debt or small businesses getting out of debt, there may be more options for small businesses. That is because issuers of unsecured debt (like credit cards) have more leeway when dealing with small business accounts than with personal accounts. In the US, money from the federal stimulus program encourages lenders to settle debts for less than their face value.

The reasoning is that when the economy recovers, small businesses are more likely to begin to turn a profit than an individual card holder, thus stimulating the economy further. In an improved economy, lenders believe they will earn more having small businesses as clients rather than individuals.

There are debt relief specialists who will negotiate on behalf of small businesses with credit card debt, and often they can get improved terms for the debt, such as a cut in interest rates or waiver of fees. But you can do much of this negotiating yourself.
