Everything You Need to Know About the Inflation Reduction Act

On August 16, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 into law. This comprehensive bill targets making health care and prescription drugs more affordable, fighting climate change, taxing wealthy corporations, and more funding for the IRS. Although the President has signed this bill, some savings in the bill won’t kick in right away. For example, efforts to lower drug prices, including caps on their costs for seniors, won’t take effect until 2025.

Our Tax Resolution Process

And there are those who went through an audit and then realized how serious the consequences are of not having professional representation and hired our firm to help after the fact.

But, as many people have experienced recently, long wait times for tax documents processing have become a common problem. This isn’t just because the IRS wants to make you wait. They are working hard to fix the problem, even if it may not seem that way to everybody.
