The IRS Tax Season officially begins Monday January 27, 2020. That’s the day the IRS will begin accepting individual 2019 tax returns. Now, I’ve been helping business professionals fight the IRS a LONG time and I’ve learned that this is the season that those with tax problems start having sleep problems again. During the rest of the year, they have learned to put their tax problems aside, stop thinking about it. NOW, tax talk is EVERY WHERE and they can’t help but be reminded of that lingering tax problem.
Typically, here’s how a tax problem starts. The business professional prepares their tax return (or has a tax professional prepare it) and calculates they owe a whole lot of money – money they just can’t pay right away. It’s troubling, but quickly forgotten in the day to day. The next tax season arrives – and they still owe from last year – so they don’t file the next tax return, then vow to tackle the problem over the summer. Often, they even file an extension of time to file in successive years. Time goes by fast – life happens. So, the spiral begins.
Their tax problem affects their sleeping habits. It is hard to get a good night sleep when you are frustrated, afraid, and worried about your family’s future. Not to mention the guilt often associated with failure to file or comply with tax laws. The lack of sleep makes it difficult to maintain good health or build your body.
The lack of sleep begins to take its toll on motivation to move a business forward. There is an old saying “If you aren’t growing, you’re dying.” It’s hard to grow a business when you’re playing catch up. The slow in business creates additional debt issues, which further accelerates the downward spiral. Financial problems are the leading cause of divorce. Interference in a marriage directly impacts family life. And forget about romance. The larger the IRS problem gets, the more likely the IRS will take public action – action that will alert your clients or customers about your IRS trouble. Now, your reputation is at stake.
What to do? First, get your head out of your ass! As an entrepreneur, you have already shown you have more courage and guts than 99 percent of all the other guys. You need to retake control of your life and rebuild your succus. You can only do that if you begin to fight back TODAY! Don’t let the IRS steal your confidence. You are not a fraud! What you don’t know is there are answers to your IRS problems. All is not lost.
You must act! Only in that way, can you begin solving your IRS problem so you can stop worrying about it. That will help you rest at night. Less worry and better sleep will lead to better health and a stronger body. Better health and a strong body will lead to more confidence. You will be in a much better frame of mind to grow your business, increase your income, improve your marriage, strengthen your family and protect your reputation. And, who knows, you may even enhance your love life.
