MSN Money - Can you turn to the IRS for tax help?

MSN Money - Can you turn to the IRS for tax help?: "It's easy to find fault with the IRS help. In all fairness, that's not the full story. Our tax code is so complicated and convoluted that even many professionals fail to get the right answer.

Since 1988, Money magazine has conducted an annual study where 50 tax professionals, including attorneys and certified public accountants, have been asked to complete a tax return for a hypothetical family.

The results have been unnerving. The professional preparers come up with different results each year -- with spreads of as much as $1,000.

So let's see where we are. The IRS can't get the answers right. Neither can the professionals. That may explain why there have been U.S. Supreme Court tax cases where as many as four of the justices got the answer 'wrong.'

That's the good news. The bad news is that IRS advice is not binding -- whether given in person or in print. You also can't rely on IRS publications, even the famed Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. If there's a mistake in print -- tough!

Thankfully, during the Reagan administration, then-IRS Commissioner Lawrence Gibbs initiated a policy where penalties would not be imposed on taxpayers who relied on incorrect information from IRS telephone taxpayer assistance personnel. That's just the penalties, not the tax itself. And you've got the burden of maintaining a record of the name of the IRS employee who supplied the incorrect information and the date of the conversation.

The IRS has a compilation of free tax services in Publication 910. It details all of the possible free taxpayer-assistance services available. The IRS Web site is also the source of forms and tax-law analysis. In fact, the site is so good and extensive, it's almost as good as the one you're on now!"
