IRS audits are no laughing matter

There was a television commercial years ago that featured a man having a particularly bad day. At the end of it all, when he returns home, his young son comes up to him and tells him that he has a phone call, following up with, "What does it mean, 'I-R-S?'" The commercial played upon the widespread notion that an inquiry from the Internal Revenue Service is something to send chills down the spine, but most people in any given tax year will never experience an actual tax audit. If you do receive a communication from the IRS, though, you can be excused for not perceiving it as a subject for humor.

Are contract arbitration agreements enforceable?

What remedies can I seek for breach of contract?

This post will cover the most common kinds of relief that are sought when the parties to a contract turn to Illinois courts for a remedy.
