first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Officials from the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) continue to partner with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to share the top tax filing season concerns referred to as the “IRS Dirty Dozen” tax scams for 2018.The fourth scam in the 12-part series is tax preparer fraud. Tax preparer fraud occurs when deceitful tax preparers are looking to make a quick buck off of honest individuals seeking tax assistance. This fraud may include inflated charges, advising clients to take credits or deductions they aren’t entitled to or ghost preparation.“Tax preparers play a vital role in submitting tax returns, with over half of U.S. taxpayers utilizing these services,” said DOR Commissioner Adam Krupp. “While the majority of tax professionals provide honest, high-quality service, individuals should be aware of dishonest preparers looking to collect high fees for fraudulent filings.”Inflated charges are usually due to tax preparers basing their fees on a percentage of a client’s refund. These preparers often advertise bigger refunds than their competition. Only give tax documents or personal information to a preparer once they have been selected to file your taxes; do not provide this information when asking about fees or services. Criminal tax preparers have improperly filed a tax return without taxpayer permission using this information.A good tax preparer will ask questions to determine the client’s total income, deductions and tax credits. In addition, they should ask for records and receipts for any credit or deduction claimed. Claiming deductions or credits the taxpayer isn’t qualified for, often leads back to the preparer collecting more fees based on the client’s refund.A ghost preparer collects a fee from the client to prepare a return, but does not sign the return. This return appears to be self-prepared. A legitimate tax preparer will sign the return and provide their Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) from the IRS. These ghost preparers don’t want to be responsible for any consequences of an incorrect return, which is often due to false reporting of income or expenses. The taxpayer is then responsible for any audit.“Selecting the right tax preparer who is trusted and credentialed should be critically important to taxpayers because the taxpayer is ultimately who is responsible for what is submitted to DOR and the IRS,” said Commissioner Krupp.DOR and the IRS offer several tips for individuals to consider when choosing a tax preparer:Avoid fly-by-night tax preparers. Make sure the preparer you select will be available well after the return is filed.  In the event that questions come up about the return, a reputable tax preparer should be available to assist.Check on tax preparer’s qualifications. The tax preparer must have an IRS PTIN to charge for preparing tax returns. The IRS also has a Directory or Federal Tax Return Preparers with Credentials and Select Qualifications that can be accessed on their website at https://irs.treasury.gov/rpo/rpo.jsf.Check the preparer’s history. The Better Business Bureau, State Board of Accountancy, and State Bar Association are great options to access the tax preparer’s history.Never sign a blank return. Any tax preparer that asks a client to sign a return before it is complete, should be avoided. Review your return to ensure everything is correct and that the refund goes directly to you, not the preparer. Reviewing the routing and bank account number can help ensure your refund is going to the correct account.Report corrupt tax preparers to the IRS or DOR.-IRS – Use Form 14157, Complaint: Tax Return Preparer and Form 14157-A, Return Preparer   Fraud or Misconduct Affidavit to report to the IRS. Forms can be found at www.irs.gov.-DOR – Report any fraudulent activity online at https://www.in.gov/dor/4792.htm or email     investigations@dor.in.gov.last_img read more

Klopp wants Liverpool to be ‘best stay at home fans’ amid police concerns

Klopp wants Liverpool to be ‘best stay at home fans’ amid police concerns

Police want at least six Premier League matches played at neutral venues Premier League chiefs have set June 17 as the date for the top flight to restart following the coronavirus delay. They hope to play the majority of the matches behind closed doors on a home and away basis at clubs’ usual stadiums. However, police are concerned about the issue of hardcore fans potentially flouting social distancing rules by congregating wherever their team play and want several fixtures, including Manchester City and Manchester United games not involving Liverpool, played at neutral venues. Liverpool are two wins away from sealing their first English title for 30 years. The Reds could be crowned champions as early as the first weekend of the restart if Manchester City lose to Arsenal and they beat Everton in a Merseyside derby. “I heard a few days ago a really good phrase about how we have the best home fans in the world, so we should maybe now say the best stay at home fans in the world,” Klopp told beIN SPORTS’ Keys & Gray Show, which is available on YouTube. “Now we are really desperate to play because we want to become champions on the pitch and it looks like we can do that wherever it will be,” the German boss added. “We hope it will be at Anfield but we don’t know, and that’s not important. “Most of the people on this planet have never had a chance in the life to become champion of the Premier League, for us it looks like that we have that chance. So we take it. “However, there will be a moment in our life when we have time and the opportunity and it’s allowed again to celebrate together.” – ‘Not perfect’ – Klopp insisted winning the title in an empty stadium would still be an “absolutely exceptional day in my life”. “It’s not perfect, but we know for a while and it will not be perfect but we are already used to that.” Earlier on Friday, police said they had reached a consensus with the Premier League that “balances the needs of football, while also minimising the demand on policing”. “The majority of remaining matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a small number of fixtures taking place at neutral venues, which, contrary to some reports, have yet to be agreed,” said Mark Roberts, the Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts of South Yorkshire Police “The Premier League’s ambition is to complete all of our remaining fixtures this season home and away, where possible,” a Premier League statement said. “We are working with our clubs to ensure risks are assessed and minimised, while co-operating with the police at a local and national level.” There had been complaints from some clubs towards the bottom of the table, including Brighton, about the impact of playing at neutral venues on sporting integrity. Brighton chief executive Paul Barber is confident his relegation-threatened side’s matches will not be at neutral venues. “Obviously the majority of home games we expect to be at home for everybody,” he said.

Arsene Wenger: Confidence is high but momentum can change at any moment

Arsene Wenger: Confidence is high but momentum can change at any moment

first_imgArsene Wenger’s Arsenal side may be playing with the utmost confidence but the experienced Gunners boss knows that can soon change. “We have had quite a positive year and stabilised our defensive record and improved our record against the strong teams in the Premier League so it looks like we are on the right train going the right way.” With the title race likely to remain open for some time, Wenger is making no predictions and keeping a lid on any pressure surrounding his players delivering a first title since 2004. “The real pressure is not to go down,” he said. “All the rest is positive pressure. I believe that football is down to performance. Who will win the title? Nobody knows. “I’ve worked for a long time in the game and nobody can tell you who will win the title. It’s down to being pragmatic, putting the effort in to win your next game and worrying about your performance. “That gives you a chance over a longer distance to maybe achieve your goals. At the moment, it’s by miles too early to say who will win the Premier League. We’ve played 17 games – we’re not even at half way.” Wenger will not be able to welcome back any of his injured players for the game at Southampton as Alexis Sanchez’s hamstring set-back is likely to keep him out throughout the festive program. Club-captain Mikel Arteta is close to a return while Wenger is hoping to have Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck available in February. The Frenchman takes his team to Southampton on Boxing Day evening knowing they could end the night top of the Barclays Premier League. That comes on the back of three successive league wins, including Monday’s crucial victory over title rivals Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium. Southampton are not in the type of form that saw them finish a club-record seventh last season but they still have the players to provide upsets. Last year Ronald Koeman welcomed Arsenal on New Year’s Day and saw his Saints pick up a 2-0 win thanks to some calamitous defending from the visitors. But after that set-back, Wenger’s men have gone on to amass 10 points more than any other Premier League side in 2015 and, with two home games against Bournemouth and Newcastle following their trip to the south coast, momentum is with Arsenal as they look to overhaul high-flying Leicester. Wenger, however, knows all-too well the fragility which accompanies such momentum. “The confidence is very high,” he said. “Confidence is built up very slowly and goes very quickly, so let’s take care of our next performance. “We have been top of the league (at this stage) in previous years and I think football is pragmatic. Nobody can predict what can happen in the next 17 games for example and you just want to go with the same attitude and spirit. “The only thing I can say is 2015, if you look back and try to analyse it, we have been consistent.

USC tennis finds itself in rarified air this year

USC tennis finds itself in rarified air this year

first_img“Goal Line Stand” runs Thursdays. If you would like to comment on this story, visit DailyTrojan.com or email Michael at katzml@usc.edu The USC men’s and women’s tennis teams are both nationally ranked in the top-five in the latest polls released.Cherish it, Trojans.It is rare for a school to have a sport where both men’s and women’s teams are among the best in the country in a particular year.Chasing history · Few programs can boast championships in the same men’s and women’s sport in the same season. USC is on the verge of joining the group with help from players such as senior Allison Ramos. – Chris Roman | Daily TrojanThe first reason for this? Well, there isn’t as much crossover in the sports as one might think; there is, for example, no opposite-sex equivalent for football or softball — baseball is far different.But second, and perhaps most importantly, is that schools generally do not invest equal resources into their men’s and women’s programs. Generally, the best coaches aren’t available for hire because they are out of the athletic department’s price range.This season, however, Peter Smith is leading a Trojan squad that is looking for its fourth-consecutive national championship. They sit atop the polls and figure to until they lose.Richard Gallien, on the other hand, has led the Women of Troy to the No. 2 spot nationally, and has USC poised to win its first championship since 1985.To put into perspective how rare it is to have a sport win both men’s and women’s titles in the same year, let’s look at some of the squads that have accomplished the feat.2004 Connecticut basketballThe 2004 men’s team was led by guard Ben Gordon and forward/center Emeka Okafor. This team was dominant. They went 33-6 and Gordon and Okafor were the third and second picks in the 2004 draft, respectively. The women were led by forward Diana Taurasi and legendary coach Geno Auriema. They went 31-4 and defeated Tennessee in the national championship game by nine points.1984 UCLA volleyballVolleyball can sometimes go unnoticed, but the Bruins were tough to ignore in 1984. The men’s squad went undefeated, while the women went 33-6. The competition wasn’t even close.2011 California swim and diveCal has been a dominant force in swim and dive the past few years. Coach Teri McKeever led the women to the top spot last season, while coach David Durden took the men to the top of the swimming world.2010 USC water poloJovan Vavic is the coach of USC’s men’s and women’s teams, and the success the men have been known for has certainly been evident on the women’s side, too. The Trojans have won four titles in a row, and the women have been in the national championship game four of the last six seasons. The women are poised to win a title this year; we will have to wait and see how it ends up unfolding.2003 Stanford cross-countryCross-country falls under the radar as much as any sport does, as most fans do not line up to watch. Stanford, however, managed to establish dominance in 2003 despite a lack of public attention on them. Pretty impressive, considering the students at the schools likely didn’t know they had             cross-country teams.There are probably others that I have missed, but the point is that if there are, there aren’t many.It is uncommon for a men’s and women’s program from the same school to win a championship because, plain and simple, schools don’t always focus on the sexes equally. Tennessee basketball has dominated the women’s circuit, but the men’s team has yet to win a title.North Carolina women’s soccer has won multiple titles, yet the men have just one.Duke men’s basketball has dominated. The women? No titles. The fact is that it just doesn’t happen.USC fans should be proud of where the men’s and women’s tennis teams stand this season. If both teams do end up at the top of the college rankings, we need to be proud. Proud that our teams have reached rarified air.Though football is king here, it should not overshadow the accomplishment that USC might be close to earning. It has only happened a handful of times, and the fact that it could happen at USC is noteworthy.last_img read more

How will 2 true point guards benefit Syracuse men’s basketball?

How will 2 true point guards benefit Syracuse men’s basketball?

first_img Published on October 30, 2016 at 10:20 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Editor’s note: With Syracuse’s first exhibition coming up on Nov. 1, this is the fourth installment of a five-part series analyzing the most interesting questions surrounding the Orange entering the season. Read the rest of the series, here.Frank Howard or John Gillon will give Syracuse something it didn’t have last season in its starting lineup, a true point guard. This year the Orange has two of them and won’t have to endure the growing pains of a 6-foot-7 wing (Michael Gbinije) adjusting to bringing the ball up the floor while dealing with smaller defenders.Howard will likely start — Jim Boeheim listed him as one of four in Tyler Lydon’s “supporting cast” — but at ACC Media Day the SU head coach said Gillon will remind fans of former Orange point guard Jonny Flynn, who was taken sixth overall in the 2009 NBA Draft.“John’s a really good player,” Boeheim said. “He can push the ball up the court. He can get in the lane. He’s quick, he’s physical, he’s strong.”And with Howard’s vast improvements, both shooting-wise and physically, SU should have a refreshing group of point guards that can distribute and score this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the offseason, Howard added 15 pounds of mostly muscle and fine-tuned his jump shot. Last year, Boeheim didn’t always trust Howard’s shot, one time telling the freshman that if he took another 10-foot floater he’d be removed from the game.“Frank and what he’s done … his work in the weight room, shooting the ball,” Boeheim said. “He’s worked really hard.”Howard played sparingly at the beginning of last season but saw more time when Boeheim relegated Kaleb Joseph to a virtually permanent bench role. In the Sweet 16, Howard played 17 minutes against Gonzaga and chipped in five points and three assists. Those were considered substantial contributions from the point guard and the numbers should balloon this year.Gillon, who is listed on Syracuse’s website at 6-feet tall, will be more of a playmaker than Howard with his ability to penetrate. While Howard made some of the best passes Boeheim has ever seen last year, according to the head coach, Gillon should provide more of an attacking dynamic to create a healthy balance between the two point guards.He averaged 13.2 points, 3.8 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game for Colorado State last season, but if Boeheim’s media day statement was any indication, the sophomore will get the nod to start the season.Either way, the Orange will have a more diverse mix of players bringing the ball up, which will allow for far more flexibility in the backcourt compared to last season.
