Face-to-face Tax Help

IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers (TACs) are your source for personal tax help when you believe your tax issue can only be handled face-to-face. No appointment is necessary.

Keep in mind, many questions can be resolved online without waiting in line. Through IRS.gov you can:
• Set up a payment plan.
• Get a transcript of your tax return.
• Make a payment.
• Check on your refund.
• Find answers to many of your tax questions.

We are now referring all requests for tax return preparation services to other available resources. You can take advantage of free tax preparation through Free File, Free File Fillable Forms or through a volunteer site in your community. To find the nearest volunteer site location or to get more information about Free File, go to the top of the page and enter “Free Tax Help” in the Search box.

If you have a tax account issues and feel that it requires talking with someone face-to-face, visit your local TAC.

The 2011 Ez Tax Form

2011 ez tax form Publication 334 - Introductory Material Table of Contents IntroductionOrdering forms and publications. 2011 ez tax form Tax questions. 2011 ez tax form Future Developments What's New for 2013 What's New for 2014 Reminders Photographs of Missing Children Introduction The purpose of this publication is to provide general information about the federal tax laws that apply to small business owners who are sole proprietors and to statutory employees. 2011 ez tax form This publication has information on business income, expenses, and tax credits that may help you file your income tax return. 2011 ez tax form Are you self-employed?   You are self-employed if you carry on a trade or business as a sole proprietor or an independent contractor. 2011 ez tax form Sole proprietor. 2011 ez tax form   A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. 2011 ez tax form However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation. 2011 ez tax form Trade or business. 2011 ez tax form    A trade or business is generally an activity carried on to make a profit. 2011 ez tax form The facts and circumstances of each case determine whether or not an activity is a trade or business. 2011 ez tax form You do not need to actually make a profit to be in a trade or business as long as you have a profit motive. 2011 ez tax form You do need to make ongoing efforts to further the interests of your business. 2011 ez tax form   You do not have to carry on regular full-time business activities to be self-employed. 2011 ez tax form Having a part-time business in addition to your regular job or business may be self-employment. 2011 ez tax form Independent contractor. 2011 ez tax form    People such as doctors, dentists, veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, or auctioneers who are in an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the general public are generally independent contractors. 2011 ez tax form However, whether they are independent contractors or employees depends on the facts in each case. 2011 ez tax form The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or to direct only the result of the work and not how it will be done. 2011 ez tax form The earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor are subject to self-employment tax. 2011 ez tax form For more information on determining whether you are an employee or independent contractor, see Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide. 2011 ez tax form Statutory employee. 2011 ez tax form   A statutory employee has a checkmark in box 13 of his or her Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. 2011 ez tax form Statutory employees use Schedule C or C-EZ to report their wages and expenses. 2011 ez tax form Limited liability company (LLC). 2011 ez tax form   A limited liability company (LLC) is an entity formed under state law by filing articles of organization. 2011 ez tax form Generally, a single-member LLC is disregarded as an entity separate from its owner and reports its income and deductions on its owner's federal income tax return. 2011 ez tax form An owner who is an individual may use Schedule C or C-EZ. 2011 ez tax form Business owned and operated by spouses. 2011 ez tax form   If you and your spouse jointly own and operate an unincorporated business and share in the profits and losses, you are partners in a partnership, whether or not you have a formal partnership agreement. 2011 ez tax form Do not use Schedule C or C-EZ. 2011 ez tax form Instead, file Form 1065, U. 2011 ez tax form S. 2011 ez tax form Return of Partnership Income. 2011 ez tax form For more information, see Publication 541, Partnerships. 2011 ez tax form    Exception—Community income. 2011 ez tax form If you and your spouse wholly own an unincorporated business as community property under the community property laws of a state, foreign country, or U. 2011 ez tax form S. 2011 ez tax form possession, you can treat the business either as a sole proprietorship or a partnership. 2011 ez tax form The only states with community property laws are Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. 2011 ez tax form A change in your reporting position will be treated as a conversion of the entity. 2011 ez tax form    Exception—Qualified joint venture. 2011 ez tax form If you and your spouse each materially participate as the only members of a jointly owned and operated business, and you file a joint return for the tax year, you can make a joint election to be treated as a qualified joint venture instead of a partnership for the tax year. 2011 ez tax form Making this election will allow you to avoid the complexity of Form 1065 but still give each spouse credit for social security earnings on which retirement benefits are based. 2011 ez tax form For an explanation of "material participation," see the Instructions for Schedule C, line G. 2011 ez tax form   To make this election, you must divide all items of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit attributable to the business between you and your spouse in accordance with your respective interests in the venture. 2011 ez tax form Each of you must file a separate Schedule C or C-EZ and a separate Schedule SE. 2011 ez tax form For more information, see Qualified Joint Ventures in the Instructions for Schedule SE. 2011 ez tax form This publication does not cover the topics listed in the following table. 2011 ez tax form    IF you need information about: THEN you
