Learning about tax-free income for Georgia residents

In many cases, individuals are required to pay taxes on any income from wages, investments or prize winnings. However, there are times when income is not considered to be taxable. For instance, if an individual wins an award, he or she may not need to pay taxes on any money that comes with the award. This is true if the winner does not need to perform substantial services in the future or if the money is donated to charity.

Handling audits conducted by the IRS

Georgia taxpayers who are concerned about an IRS audit should not be too worried about the possibility. The incidence of audits, which are rare occurrences in the first place, has been dropping over the past few years. Of the ones that do occur, most are done through the mail and not face-to-face with an IRS agent. Cuts to the IRS budget over the last few years has resulted in staff cuts, and this means there are fewer agents to audit and fewer people getting audited.
