The IRS is not going to come after you because a loved one (who lives in a different household and does not own a business with you) has a tax problem. However, you love your relative or friend, and you want to do what you can to help your loved one through this difficult time.
Friends Don’t Let Friends Solve Tax Problems Alone
It can be tempting for you to try to help your friend on your own. You may have the best of intentions, and you should be there to provide moral support to your loved one during the resolution of his tax case. However, you should be extremely cautious about trying to solve your loved one’s tax problems without the help of an experienced Tulsa tax attorney.
Think about what could happen if you were to take charge of your loved one’s tax problems. You could inadvertently make things worse, or your loved one could blame you for the outcome of her tax case. It isn’t worth the risk to your relationship. If your loved one trusts you enough to come to you for help, then you should be honest enough to recommend that your loved one get professional tax help.
