IRS Procedures that May Save you Money

Financial

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.”

Grounds for Divorce in Ohio - Sylkatis Law, LLC

A divorce in Ohio is filed when there is typically “fault” by one of the parties and party not at “fault” seeks to end the marriage. A court in Ohio may grant a divorce for the following reasons:
• Willful absence of the adverse party for one year
• Adultery
• Extreme cruelty
• Fraudulent contract
• Any gross neglect of duty
• Habitual drunkenness
• Imprisonment in a correctional institution at the time of filing the complaint
• Procurement of a divorce outside this state by the other party

Additionally, there are two “no-fault” basis for which a court may grant a divorce:
• When the parties have, without interruption for one year, lived separate and apart without cohabitation
• Incompatibility, unless denied by either party

However, whether or not the the court grants the divorce for “fault” or not, in Ohio the party not at “fault” will not get a bigger slice of the marital property.
