ER Doc Advisor - Financial Planning & Taxes for Emergency Physicians

EP 190: The IRS’ Dirty Dozen

There’s no question that most tax schemes blur the lines between fact and fiction. Every deduction can run afoul quickly, especially if abused. So much so that the IRS annually releases its own list to educate and inform the public about these schemes.

On today’s episode, we go over the“dirty dozen;” many of which target high-income earners, like ER docs, to ensure listeners are aware of the difference between tax scams and legitimate tax strategies.

Topics Discussed:   

  • How common tax scams are and where we’ve seen them.
  • Vulnerable areas that are easiest to take advantage of and what to look for.
  • What an offer and compromise mill is and how it works.
  • Phishing or schemes that can easily mislead or confuse people.
  • Common scams that target higher income individuals.
