IRS Procedures that May Save you Money

Litigation Reports

Many companies are experiencing a downturn in business because of the deepening economic crisis. Corporations suffering in today’s difficult business environment may have an immediate need for funds for various purposes, including continued operations, meeting payroll or complying with credit covenants. Even corporations on solid ground may need funds to take advantage of business opportunities or solidify their base. Grant Thornton LLP has developed the summary document, IRS procedures offer relief to cash-starved businesses, to share information on procedures - already available under the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) - that may allow corporations to receive refunds quickly or defer payment of tax.

“Since tax, in its various forms, is usually one of the biggest overhead costs in business, it is important for corporations to look carefully at how to manage that cost and its impact on cash flow,” said Rob Byrd, Tax partner in Grant Thornton’s Charlotte office. “While the Treasury and Congress have provided relief in the form of new guidance and legislation, corporations should also be aware of what’s already out there to help them. If a corporation qualifies for one of these procedures, there should be no reason to wait to get cash in hand or defer payment. Taking advantage of the administrative relief provided by the Internal Revenue Service can only help to improve liquidity.”

Illinois Work Injury Lawyers – Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD.

Accidents in the workplace are often caused by unsafe work conditions arising from ignoring safety rules, overlooking maintenance or other negligence of those in management. While we are one of the largest firms in Illinois dedicated solely to the representation of injured workers, we pride ourselves on the personal, one-on-one approach we deliver to each client.

Work accidents can cause serious injuries and sometimes permanent damage. Some extremely serious work injuries can permanently hinder a person’s ability to get around and continue their daily duties. Factors that affect one’s quality of life such as place of work, relationships with friends and family, and social standing can all be taken away quickly by a work injury. Although, you may not be able to recover all of your losses, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of your work injury. Krol, Bongiorno & Given, LTD. provides informed advocacy in all kinds of workers’ compensation claims, including:

• Injuries to the back and neck, including severe spinal cord injuries
• Serious head injuries
• Heart problems resulting from workplace activities
• Injuries to the knees, elbows, shoulders and other joints
• Injuries caused by repetitive movements

For Illinois Workers’ Compensation claims, you will ALWAYS cheat yourself if you do not hire an experienced attorney. When you hire Krol, Bongiorno & Given, Ltd, you will have someone to guide you through the process, and when it is time to settle, we will add value to your case IN EXCESS of our fee. In the last few years, employers and insurance carriers have sought to advance the argument that when you settle a case without an attorney, your already low settlement should be further reduced by 20% so that you do not get a “windfall.” Representing yourself in Illinois is a lose-lose proposition.
