IRS Highlights the "Dirty Dozen" Tax Scams That Are Targeting Taxpayers

Phone scams and email phishing schemes are among the "Dirty Dozen" tax scams the IRS highlighted, for the first time, on 12 straight business days from Jan. 22 to Feb. 6. The IRS has also set up a special section on highlighting these 12 schemes for taxpayers.

"With April 15 looming in the not-so-distant future, that is just one of the lessons that has emerged from the recent explosion of research into tax cheating. Inspired by a new availability of data sets and technological tools, economists and social scientists are trying to figure out what will blunt the ever-present temptation to cheat on one’s taxes."


US Bankruptcy Judge: Bitcoin Is Intangible Personal Property Not Cash

"During a hearing held last Friday, a bankruptcy court judge said that bitcoin is property not cash. The hearing relates to a suit filed by the trustee of bankrupt bitcoin mining firm HashFast Michael Kasolas against Marc Lowe, a former promoter for the service, seeking to recover 3,000 bitcoins (approximately $1.3 million) that had been paid by HashFast to Lowe for promoting the service."

Or will I make an offer so outrageous that the other side walks away from the bargaining table in a huff? Fortunately, there's now a lot of data to help negotiators decide wisely."
